    This is also what links snoke to those tanks. They were definitely "strand casts" in this episode.
    Were they? The lab tech said that they infused volunteers with 'high m-count blood'. Sounds to me like they used individuals to infuse blood into them.

    They talk about two groups. One the "subject" that failed after a fortnight and how the guy thinks the volunteer will meet the same fate. It is unclear who the volunteer is but it does seem likely that it isn't the same as the people in the tanks. I can't think of anyone shown so far who would be a rival to the Mandalorian but it feels like a story hook to give him a nemesis that isn't Moff Gideon. Or it will be used to tie to something in the greater Star Wars canon.

    There are some rumors, with little proof, that her spin off series has been cancelled or put on hold. Personally I think the whole thing is stupid. Are her comments stupid? Sure. But a few of the things are just silly to attack her over. Like the people that attack her over having a Parler account. Half of the country would be "canceled" if we punish those who have different views on the election or COVID-19.

    Can you kids take this discussion off to gen-ot forum? Seeing as Mandalorian is a middle-finger to kathleen kennedy, I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.

    Lets get back to the topic, this show. Otherwise mods will have to issue warnings, infractions, since generally mostly all like this show, don't derail thread by getting it locked.

    Lets get back to some really serious issues. Katee Sackhoff's straight hair, here it looks more like the animated version of Bo Katan. Live version gives a different vibe.

    Weird.

    She is a character on the show. Discussing her and her possible continued existence is as relevant anything else as long as it is done with some restraint given the subject matter.

    I don't think anyone here seriously believes this forum knows the meaning of restraint.

    2nd, Mandalorian isn't in the hands of kathleens trilogy bunch, so you are just steering discussion away from the show.

    I have been suspect why this thread has gotten so much traffic, n before gina carano, during season 2. Was very little discussion during season 1, most were in agreement, n still are, I can only assume this is spill-over lack of shows n movies 2020 has carried off heated need to be right n go after other side has reared its ugly head in this good thread.

    Discussing the actions of an actor who could be removed from the show because of controversy is not about the show? Weird. You are doing far more steering away by talking about issues, digs at Kathleen Kennedy, and talking about general moderation. This thread saw discussion all during Season 1. Discussion now has nothing to do with a lack of movies or some pathological need to be right.

    What discussion exactly? Has anyone any update to speak of? Any basis why Filoni/Jon Favrou would take this step this deep into the show as a 1st reaction?

    You are doing far more steering away by talking about issues, digs at Kathleen Kennedy
    Uhm no, that was directed to a bigger unlikelyhood of this not ending up as a woke decision due to her boys jjabrams, rian johnson not being in charge of the Mandalorian n her other favorites, otherwise you would have a point. There is also the other issue of her way was running the franchise into the ground, so she doesn't have the pull she used to.

    and talking about general moderation
    Uhm, this isn't general off-topic forum,
    https://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/...eral-Off-Topic
    https://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/359-Politics

    this is the "Cinema / TV Shows / Music / Books" forum, am I wrong?

    This thread saw discussion all during Season 1. Discussion now has nothing to do with a lack of movies or some pathological need to be right.
    Now you are out-right lying or you don't remember. Season 1 had low traffic here. Now unless the pitchfork mob has anything new to add on your subject, lets get back to the topic of the actual show, next episode is titled I believe The Jedi.

    Politics aside, I am hoping that they move away from the "main characters pinned down behind hallway pillars by impotent stormtrooper blaster fire" that we saw causing a good chunk of the "action suspense" in these last two episodes to something a bit more dynamic than what we saw as salient action in A New Hope 40 years ago.

    There are at least 60 pages discussing season 1. That isn't "low traffic". The actual show covers both plot and actors. If you don't like an aspect of the show being discussed then just scroll on by. Keep your hate and insults of directors, executives and whatever else out of it.

    Season 1 is from page 6-53, regardless how many pages you thought, lol imagine thinking that is high traffic

    Well, maybe you can start discussing the show, and not twitter, I thought they were two different things. Since you can't contribute discussion to the show, i'll put you on ignore. Didn't come here to talk with twitter mobs.

    Again isn't an actor on the show considered part of the show? Season 1 has seen more discussion then Season 2 so far. So if you are saying one that has more discussion is less then the other the fault is with you and your weird crusade.
