‘The Mandalorian’: A Surprising Season One Character Makes A Return

Din Djarin's going to need all the help he can get.

A surprising character from The Mandalorian season one returned in the latest chapter of Din Djarin’s quest across the galaxy.

The Mandalorian continues to impress with each new episode as a returning character from the first season made an appearance in the most recent chapter. It was always going to be hard topping the previous episode, which introduced Ahsoka Tano in live-action for the first time. But director Robert Rodriguez managed to do it with style as Ming Na Wen’s sharpshooter, Fennec Shand reappeared to give the bounty hunter a hand on Tython.

In an even more shocking reveal was the return of Boba Fett as the trio work together to fight off the Stormtroopers from getting Baby Yoda. Although Fennec Shand was left for dead after being shot by Toro Calican – Fett saved her and repaired her wounds with mechanical parts. The now part-cyborg sharpshooter helped the two bounty hunters fight the Stormtroopers in some incredibly choreographed fight scenes which made the thirty minute episode feel a lot longer, in the best way.
