Episode 4 was a little slower than the previous 3 episodes, but it did fill in a lot about the Mandalorian. It was verified that he does in fact remove his helmet, but only when alone. That means no one has seen his face since he was a child taken in by the Mandos.
The Mandalorian finds a very backwater planet that doesn’t even have a spaceport to hide out. He runs into Cara Dune (Gina Carano), an ex Rebel shock trooper who is also hiding out on the planet.
They get into a bit of a tussle (Cara Dune appeared to be winning) before they join forces to help a small local group of farmers to defeat a raiding clan of Klatooinians. Those Klatooinians have some big firepower in the form of an up-armored AT-ST. They took a somewhat goofy looking vehicle that the Ewoks made short work of, and turned it into a really evil looking killing machine.
Long story short, the farmers win and The Mandalorian is thinking about staying in the village with Baby Yoda. That is, until a bounty hunter tries to sniper Baby Yoda (He deserves his own name, so let’s call him Little Yodes). The Mando then realizes he has to stay on the run and take Little Yodes with him to keep him safe.
If you watch the credits you’ll notice Bryce Dallas Howard (daughter of Ron Howard aka Opie aka Richie Cunningham) directed this episode. She did a pretty decent job of capturing the human emotions side of the Mandalorian.
