Editor's Note: The following contains minor spoilers from Season 3 Episode 2 of The Mandalorian.The Mandalorian Season 3 has already centered more on Mandalorian lore than ever before. With Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) now disgraced from the Children of the Watch for removing his helmet, he journeys to the Mandalorian home world, looking for redemption. As he takes Grogu Mandalore, they see the state of the planet, and Din assures his son that wasn't always like that. Once there, Din determines the extent of the damage, learning that the air is breathable, despite the rumors of it being poisonous. There seems to be a lot of misinformation about Mandalore. Yet the once lush and green planet is now rocks and ruins. The events that resulted in Mandalore's destruction aren't explained in detail in the episode but are a significant part of Mandalorian history. The Great Purge of Mandalore was the Empire's reaction to a long saga of Mandalore's resistance to their control. The Purge ended in a bloody event referred to as the Night of a Thousand Tears, which left the planet's surface in the sorry state Din and Grogu find it in.
The odd couple is perfectly matched, with the elderly Iroh acting as a jovial comic foil to Zuko's fierce, brooding nature. The uncle-nephew duo goes through quite a few ups and downs and several transformations throughout the series, from disgraced Fire Nation fugitives to celebrated royals and back again.
This will prove to be one of the most heartbreaking episodes for fans of Zuko and Iroh's usually unbreakable bond. After his betrayal of Katara and Iroh at the end of season two, Zuko has resumed his tenuous royal status in the Fire Nation. For his actions defending the Avatar, Iroh has been disgraced and imprisoned.
Fans get a taste of Iroh's exceptional skills as an orator as he describes young Zuko's insubordination during a war council meeting that resulted in his father, Fire Lord Ozai, scarring his face with a blast of fire. This episode not only reveals details about Zuko's backstory, but it also provides a glimpse into the deep empathy that Iroh has for his disgraced nephew.
The tv comedy, Community, revolves around a disgraced lawyer who enrols into college and becomes friends with a group of misfits. After the lead writer, Dan Harmon, left the show to make Rick & Morty, it wasn't too surprising when he asked actors from Community to cameo including Joe Rash, Gillian Jacobs, and the lead star, Joel McHale.
Hovering awkwardly at the garage door with a moving truck behind him, disgraced father Jerry Smith asks for permission to say goodbye to his own children. Rick begrudgingly allows it, but warns him to do so from the driveway since "the killbots are live and I took you off the whitelist."
It seems like the new season will focus on Max (Mark Bonnar) and his attempt at redemption. "You're still falling, Max," the disgraced lawyer is told. "You've yet to land." Even though we don't see him, Jamie Sives is due to return as Jake, while there will also be some new faces: Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey's Mrs. Hughes), Sara Vickers (Joan Thursday in Endeavour), and Stuart Bowman, who will apparently replace season one's Bill Paterson as mob boss Roy Lynch. Bowman will also appear in the upcoming sixth season of Grantchester, which premieres Sunday, October 3 at 8:00 pm on WTTW. 041b061a72
