SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE MANDALORIAN EPISODE 3
Chapter 3 titled The Sin finally brings a little more action to the series as The Mandalorian shoots up the place a handful of times in the episode directed by Deborah Chow (will direct the Kenobi series next).
An interesting new character we’re introduced to is a fellow Mandalorian named Paz Vizla and he seemingly takes issue with Dyn Jarren working for The Empire aka The Client as the two draw their knives against each other while Dyn is getting new armor from The Armorer.
Once Jarren has second thoughts and rescues the child from The Client by basically shooting up the Stormtroopers, he’s surrounded by a horde of bounty hunters looking to take the child back as their locators reactivate once the child is in the open.
He’s then surprised to see his Mandalorian kin arrive with jet packs including Paz with a huge mini-gun type baster holding off the bounty hunters allowing Jarren to escape in his ship.
Because of the skirmish, it’s revealed that the Armorer (played by Emily Swallow) and the other Mandalorians will now have to set up shop somewhere else.
Tait Fletcher (the large gentleman in the bar scene in Chapter 1) is the actor in the costume but seemingly someone else is voicing the character.
Listening to Paz a bit closer it sounds like Jon Favreau’s voice slightly modified.
The character’s name is likely a nod to Favreau’s Clone Wars character Pre Vizsla.
I’m kind of hoping we see this character reappear, but that could be wishful thinking.
I can now see why Lucasfilm wanted to get Deborah Chow onboard to direct their Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor, as Chapter 3 – The Sin might be my favorite episode of the three so far.
The end credits included some neat concept art that featured Paz.
Chapter 4 is set to air on Disney+ on Friday, November 27th.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series depicts a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
