The Mandalorian: The Foundling - Chapter 20 - Personal Thoughts
I'm not use to play story games but if there is a Mandalorian game with the story of the Tv Show I would play it, not sure if it exist but none of the episodes disappoint.
This kid in the blue helmet, Ragnar, has probably the worst luck ever and every single creature/monster wants him for dinner, on chapter 17 when Din Djarin arrive to the planet where the Armorer is with the other mandalorians, they were initiating this kid, few minutes after Din arrive some kind of gigantic crocodile attack them and almost catch the kid, on this episode same thing with a pterodactyl type of creature but this time got him. I'm not sure but I think this is the Armorer kid or relative, I mention this without knowing since I don't want to spoil things I prefer to discover it as they series develops but it wouldn't be strange since I saw next picture that shows Ragnar father Paz next to the Armorer or probably I'm wrong and talking sht.
Chapter 20: The Foundling, is all about the kids, its about Grogu learning to defend himself, Din pushing him to learn the way but he is too young, although from a video that I saw about last chapter Grogu is suppose to be 50 years and will be an adult at 90 years old. He really looks and acts like a child but he is already strong in the force, his raze is naturally strong in the force as Yoda was.
Din wants Grogu to get more experience in fighting, he already know how strong he is mentally but he wants Grogu to become agile and expert in combat as most of the mandalorians are. This time got Grogu got to train with Ragnar using darts, he beat him after getting hit two out of three, while they were talking about the match all of the sudden a flying creature comes and grab Ragnar.
Mandalorians didn't try to fight the creature since they could easily hurt the kid, the creature it just too big and fast, they try to track him down but fail since boost packs don't hold enough fuel, lucky Bo-Kathan had her ship and was able to locate the creature nest.
They are a tribe who are very calm, not often you see them loosing control or acting aggressive that's part of the creed I guess, they get into Bo-Kathan and start planning how to rescue Ragnar since she located the nest, its a bit far from their camp but they took a small crew to hunt it down.
Grogu look like he wanted to go with the rest but the Armorer told him he is too young for a mission and still have a lot to learn, then she start explaining him how the Creed and their skill to forge weapons and their armor have similar lessons, while Grogu start remembering what happen in season one when the Jedi academy was attacked and he was saved by Kelleran Beq, a Jedi that took him out of the city and risk his life to save him.
The Armorer finish forging a new shield for Grogu (the one of the first image) that will become part of his armor, he wont stay the same size so eventually in the future his current armor will be melt down to forge him a new one.
Mandalorians arrive to the peak where the creature's nest is, they camp at the bottom, here I find out that when Mandalorians are in group they can take off their helmet but have to go separate ways and find a spot where they are alone, then they can take off their helmet and eat and investigating found out that when they are married they can do the same but with their love one next to them.
They camp and wait to attack in the morning, they start climbing the peak and got to the top, about 10 Mandalorian all armed got to the top to find out that Ragnar was not there and instead there were three young "pterodactyl" like creatures
Paz was inside the nest when the creatures mother came back to feed Ragnar to the little ones, but when he notice his son was still alive he boost jump with his rocket pack and try to hurt the creature, failing and ended up inside its mouth, after that the creature took Ragnar again and flies away, the rest of the Mandalorians follow them and start shooting at the creature.
They all start shooting and throwing their climbing cables at it trying to pin it down, Din finally was able to wrap his cable around one of the creatures wing so it couldn't continue to fly, as the creature start to fall down let loose Ragnar, Din caught him right before it hit the water.
This time cripple without the ability to fly, the creature falls down to the water where the gigantic crocodile eats it, it couldn't swim or fly so it couldn't defend itself.
With Ragnar safe, everyone returns to the camp in Bo-Kathan ship and they also took the three young flying creatures, I guess Mandalorians have ride them in the past or at least Bo think they can do it since they ride the Mythosaur in the past. Taking this three creatures so young may be they can domesticate them, their mother look very smart as it battle the Mandalorians.
I didn't talk much about the scene where Grogu escape since it was just a memory and for me it didn't have any revelation or anything new that adds to this chapter, it was a flashback but I guess it happen because Grogu compares the Jedi academy with now living with the Mandalorians and their training.
PS: I was so WRONG about this, it seems until now its reveal that Kelleran Beq is the one who safe Grogu and was a mystery until now, I get all this details after watching recaps from people more knowledge on Star Wars and the series, the reason why I tittle my posts "Personal Thoughts" and not Reviews as I dont consider myself an expert.
This chapter was all about the new generations, from the mandalorian, jedi and flying creatures, I got to know a bit more about the way, if only humans help each other as this group of mandalorians do, they protect each other and got their back as long as they walk the way. It is also interesting how Bo is now walking the way when she initially was against it, probably because of her past and how old her family is she now feels its the correct path if she wants to claim back Mandalore now that she knows it still exist and the air is clean, they could come back and rebuild it.
