Andor Episode 12

Andor Episode 12

Title: Rix Road
Director: Benjamin Caron

Andor Episode 12 is the Season One finale; just in time for Thanksgiving (if you live in the US). This episode will give you plenty to talk about at Thanksgiving dinner (instead of politics). We know there will be a time-lapse between this season and the next. How will this season end?

Cassian returns home for his mother’s funeral, which has a sacred and honored tradition on Ferrix. However, is he walking into a trap? Everyone is there looking for him to either arrest him or kill him. Tensions among the citizens are high because of the Empire’s presence and things are hitting their tipping point.

Andor Episode 11

I love the symmetry of this scene with Rogue One

Title: Daughter of Ferrix
Director: Benjamin Caron

This is the penultimate episode. Andor (and Melshi) have escaped their prison on Narkina 5. Where are they going next? Perhaps to recover Cassian’s money? Maybe to Ferrix to check on Maarva? What about the Spellhaus attack? Let’s talk about Andor Episode 11!

We are building to a crescendo as Cassian is again a fugitive from the Empire. A moniker he will have for the rest of his life. As he and Melshi plan their next moves, Luthen and Mon Mothma are forced to make more sacrifices for the Rebellion.

Andor Episode 10

Andor Episode 10

Title: One Way Out
Director: Toby Haynes

Time for the great escape. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry will be watching this episode (IYKYK). It’s hard to believe we only have two episodes left after this one and then we have to wait until 2024 for Season 2! Be that as it may, let’s discuss the events of Andor Episode 10.

This is another exceptional episode. Some great edge-of-your-seat action and suspense. There is also more exceptional acting, which I will get to later. This episode is everything I wanted in a Star Wars-themed prison break. You really get the sense that not all of these guys are hardened criminals. In fact, most of them, like Cassian, may be wrongfully imprisoned.

Andor Episode 9

Andor Episode 9

Title: Nobody’s Listening
Director: Toby Haynes

When we last saw Cassian he was in prison with his soon-to-be buddy Melshi, making parts for, presumably, the Death Star. Vel and Cinta are hunting him while his friends and mother are being repressed and interrogated by the Imperial presence on Ferrix. Let’s discuss Andor Episode 9.

For a “middle” episode, this one is pretty intense. Andy Serkis and Diego Luna’s performances in this episode are amazing. I’m a fan of Snoke, but this is Andy’s best role and performance as a Star Wars character!

Andor Episode 8

Andor Episode 8

Title: Narkina 5
Director: Toby Haynes

Andor Episode 8 has dropped and we have some questions after the events of last week’s episode. For instance, we know Andor isn’t in prison for six years (that would put his release around the time of Empire Strikes Back). So how does he get out of prison? Did we get our answers?? We did not but I wasn’t expecting that to happen in this episode. This is the first episode in the third 3-story arc of the season. Therefore it’s safe to assume Andor is in prison for at least one more episode with the escape happening in Episode 10.

So how does he escape? And who helps him?

Andor Episode 7

Andor Episode 7

Title: Announcement
Director: Benjamin Caron

In a recent interview Tony Gilroy explains that this episode will be a standalone episode; breaking the pattern we’ve seen in the first half of the season. Technically, Andor episode 7 does as he describes, although it does end in a bit of a cliffhanger. There is also a new director, Benjamin Caron, who has directed episodes of The Crown and Sherlock.

I really like this episode. The espionage and intrigue takes a big step up in this episode. As the galaxy and the Empire responds to the robbery on Aldhani, the Rebellion is beginning. It’s probably Fiona Shaw’s best performance in the series (thus far).
