Story 8.5/10

Din Djarin begins his treacherous journey to bathe in the sacred waters of Mandalor. But in the course of his pilgrimage, he falls prey to a dangerous creature. It’s up to Grogu to get help. Through his efforts, a prodigal daughter answers his pleas and sees a mysterious and powerful vision. Can she gain redemption as well?

The writers and actors do a great job through this stretch of episodes of making Bo-Katan and Grogu, two unlikely people, reflection characters. It makes the story much richer and adds depth to the characters.

Character 9.1/10

Din Djarin is proud of Grogu. He’s seen what his son can do. And he wants the other Mandalorians to know how special and powerful he is. Now that Din is firmly back on the path of the Mandalorian, he will do everything in his power to make sure Grogu is on that path as well.

Bo Katan is agnostic. She's always been willing to follow some of the customs of the Mandolorians if they fit her political aspirations. But now she's seen the famed Mythosaur: Mandalor the Great’s creature. It has a powerful effect on her. Only time will tell if it is enough to truly convert her to “the way.”

Grogu is trying to find the strength to walk the path that he's chosen. He loves his dad and just wants to make him proud. But this viewer doesn’t think Grogu is old enough to realize the enormity of his destiny or the consequences of the path he has chosen. Will he grow into it or run away from it?

Final Thoughts

Din Jarin is a true believer. If he is the sun, then his pull keeps Grogu and Bo-Katan close. But moving forward, it will be interesting to see how they fare and if they will continue to walk the path. It's just one more great reason to stick around for this incredible show.
