To those who are up to date with the installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or who, at least, have seen the two volumes of Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn, 2014, 2017), the first scene of the episode “The Siege” (2×04) by The Mandalorian (Jon Favreau, since 2019), now available on Disney Plus, and the situation that Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Baby Yoda show us can remind you of two hilarious moments from Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel ) in the second film. And then an old acquaintance returns to our screens for another sensational display of her hand-to-hand fighting skills.
It is a pleasure that the supporting characters have the opportunity to show off their skills and their importance for the development of the story.
And he is not the only character who returns in this chapter, how could it be otherwise, but one of the other two we did not expect in any way. On the other hand, It is not bad that they have finally decided to show us again the great capacities of the big eared baby to use the Force at will and, in this case, at the service of his food obsession, which caused so much trouble in “The Passenger” (2×02), which is most coherent. And again, they focus on one more seemingly episodic story, as in “The Child” (1×02), “Sanctuary” (1×04), “The Gunslinger” (1×05), “The Prisoner” (1×06), “The Marshal “(2×01) and” The Heiress “(2×03) to date.
However, we discover midway through “The Siege” and its insistence on the fighting and laser shots of stormtroopers through the corridors of Imperial facilities, that actually is related to the main plot about the enigma of what the enemy wants from the mighty little guy, perhaps already on the radar of fans of The Mandalorian and Star Wars in general. And what we fear seems very alarming to us. But deciding that it was time to offer some revelations on the basics of the series in the fourth chapter of the current season, the half of the same, is very logical.
In “The Siege” (2×04) there is a brief but typical Wild West duel in aerospace version
Later, they change the imperial corridors for a pretty spectacular exterior chase, during which one suddenly realizes that supporting characters are very happy to have the opportunity to show off their skills and, well, their importance to the development of the story without Din Djarin necessarily present. And this is so even though the absence of the latter for a reasonable time is revealed later necessary, not only for the deus ex machina that occurs, but also for the typical Wild West duel in aerospace version and the conclusion of the sequence to bear fruit. in a satisfying way.
And all this good work, in addition to the threatening final scene, we owe it to the actor Carl Weathers (Rocky), who plays Greef Karga, who has directed “The Siege” and of which many are unaware that he has performed the same task with various episodes of other series since 1995: eight from Silk Stockings, one from Renegade (Stephen J. Cannell, 1991-1999, 1992-1997), two from Pensacola: Golden Wings (William Blinn and Jacqueline Zambrano, 1997-2000), three from 18 Wheels of Justice (Richard C. Okie, 2000-2001) and five from Sheena (Douglas Schwartz and Steven L. Sears, 2000-2002).
Carl Weathers has shown Jon Favreu and viewers that he was up to the challenge of directing an episode of The Mandalorian
And also one from PhDs from Philadelphia (Tammy Ader and Whoopi Goldberg, 2000-2006), another from For the People (2002-2003) and one more from Hawaii 5.0 (Peter M. Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, Leonard Freeman and Roberto Orci, 2010-2020). But the very first television line he had not tasted until he had the opportunity to settle down as the director of this worthy chapter of The Mandalorian, with which he has shown Jon Favreu and viewers that he was up to the challenge, and, has left us with great concern and more desire to know what Moff Gideon is up to (Giancarlo Esposito) between his perfidious hands.
