the rebels plan their attack

Andor’s massive heist is getting greater by the episode. A scrappy assault on an Imperial base would have been about quarter-hour of The Mandalorian or The E book Of Boba Fett, however this week provides us one other hour of setup because the rebels carry on pouring over their plan.

Giving a Star Wars story area to breath is perhaps uncommon, however it works – with sensible writing and an awesome forged turning another present’s filler into the true meat of the collection. We’re nonetheless caught within the stunning bogs of Aldhani (VisitScotland have to be loving this present) and the preparations for the payroll raid have gotten obsessive.

As anticipated, nerves begin fraying. Cassian (Diego Luna) wakes as much as discover out everybody has been by his stuff, and Skeen (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), specifically, appears suspicious. Cassian manages to get by the interrogation with out giving an excessive amount of away, and a chat with Nemik (Alex Lawther) appears to calm him down – nearly making him really feel welcome. All credit score to Lawther right here for making Nemik such a splendidly bizarre bunch of neuroses (he’s the galaxy’s new C-3PO), and to Luna for nonetheless enjoying the proper insurgent with out a lot of a trigger.

As the strain strains, the cracks begin exhibiting. Taramyn (Gershwyn Eustache Jnr) and Vel (Faye Marsay) let slip that they don’t truly know methods to pull off one of many key techie components of the plan, and Cassian begins to grasp simply how weak this insurrection actually is. They’re passionate however they don’t have a clue – they usually’re sorely lacking a frontrunner. Cassian might be the most effective match to take cost, however he’s a good distance off wanting it. Additionally, everybody else is aware of it.

When Skeen finds Cassian’s kyber crystal, he confronts him in entrance of everybody (“who brings a treasure to a theft?!”), and will get him to admit that he’s simply in it for the cash. That goes down about in addition to anticipated.

Elsewhere, the opposite items of the puzzle are slowly transferring into place. Karn (Kyle Soller) is again in his mum’s home, moping over his blue Coco Pops. “Cease slouching… you may as nicely put on an indication that claims, ‘I promise to disappoint you’” nags his mum, giving us a fairly clear concept of the place Karn’s darkish aspect comes from. Nonetheless secretly obsessive about a hologram of Cassian – the person who price him his profession – it’s clear that Karn solely sees revenge as his means again to the highest.

Meero (Denise Gough) remains to be searching for her personal massive profession break within the paperwork, and Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) is having to take care of her terrible right-wing household as she secretly funds a insurrection. The final phrase, although, is given to Luthen (Stellan Skarsgård), as he nervously paces his faux vintage store the evening earlier than the massive heist. “It’ll all be over this time tomorrow,” says his assistant, additionally in on the assault. “Or it’ll simply be beginning…”
