During the excellent second season of The Mandalorian, Mando has traveled the galaxy trying to find the right person to train his tiny green son, meeting Mandalorians, powerful Jedi, famous bounty hunters and even an adorable frog family along the way. He's learned that his way isn't the only Mandalorian one and that there were certain lines worth crossing for the ones he loved. And as he comes to the end of his quest, he learns most importantly that he needs to sacrifice his own wants for the needs of the one he values most even if that breaks his heart. On top of all that, we also get an appearance by a certain famous actor who isn't quite done with his legendary character yet and a coda showing that the book of Boba Fett has a few more chapters in it.
Since Moff Gideon has the Darksaber and Mando has the coordinates to his ship, Bo-Katan agrees to help rescue Grogu as long as she gets Gideon's cruiser to retake Mandalore. If Mando finishes his quest with the child, she asks him to join their efforts and he agrees. She requests the Darksaber as well, which we helpfully find out cannot cut through pure beskar. She's going to kill the Moff and take what is rightfully hers. With the Darksaber restored to her, Mandalore will finally be in reach. Mando doesn't really care about anything but Grogu so he tells her to take whatever she wants, he just wants the child.
Gideon notes that the saber used to belong to Bo-Katan and that he knows Mando has been traveling with her. He knows everything such as the fact that his whistling stars have already launched. Mando wants to know where this villain monologue is going and Gideon kindly tells him exactly what Bo-Katan and her group of what he terms murderous savages has accomplished by now but what Bo-Katan really wants is the Darksaber because whoever wields it has the right to lay claim to the Mandalorian throne. Mando doesn't care about that, he just wants his child.
Over at Elizabeth's house, Verity tells Elizabeth she knows what's bothering her. She must not feel right about marrying Malfoy because her heart still belongs to Francis, right? Surely, getting over the very recent death of one's husband must still be so very hard. Elizabeth pulls a muscle pretending that yes, all these hysterics are totally about Francis and not his much hotter cousin:
As Kala is working, Will is overlooking his research into Whispers and BPO before going back to bed. As they are both quite restless and unfocused, Kala appears to Will and asks for his advice. She's keenly aware her husband hasn't been completely forthcoming about his business practices, but she hasn't been totally honest either. As she goes to check Will's vitals as they continue to visit one another, she confesses she now thinks it's better if she came forward about her being another species. She believes Rajan is a good man, though she's less certain of this as she once was. A separate issue, she wants to know if Will sensed something was untrustworthy about Lila. She's very sure of it. She tests Will's saliva with a cotton swab. While she's allowed herself to be paralyzed by doubt in the past, she's now considering a more proactive approach, like him or Sun. That entails telling Rajan everything about what's going on with her and then asking him to confess whatever he's up to. She's unsure if this is a good approach, but she also doubts a marriage can survive secret-keeping. Now that she's finally done rambling, Will asks if she wants to tell Rajan so he'll tell her everything or because she's in love with someone else. She deflects and tells him his thiamine is low while his lack of irons is affecting his adrenals, which is why he's craving drugs. She tells him drugs won't help him to find Whispers. He needs to eat properly, take his medicine, and focus. She gives him an injection and tells him he'll be fine. She goes to leave, but he stops her and tells her she'll be fine, too.

Fuchs joins Wolfgang in a steam room and asks for his advice. He knows that Wolfgang is aware how delicate the situation is. It's about Lila and the way she talks about him. He asks if Lila ever talks about him. Wolfgang says not really. Fuchs says he cares for Lila a great deal and goes to talk about thinking about marrying her as Lila appears to Wolfgang, commenting she loves listening to men trying to express their feelings. Fuchs wonders if you can ever really know someone. He admits he has friends at the NSA and has paid them to monitor certain cell lines. He received transcripts of a call that has led him to believe Lila is going to betray him. Lila herself pretends to feel for him. Wolfgang inquires about the call. Fuchs says it came from Khailal, one of his competitors, negotiating a contract on his life. Since Wolfgang knows this city and the criminal world, he wants Wolfgang to provide information. Lila tells Wolfgang he was right about the difference between them: she wants to live freely without a leash around her neck. A staff member brings Fuchs his phone. It's Lila calling him. She pretends to be panicky. She tells Fuchs that she received a call from Khailal, who's planning on making a move on him. She played along with him to find out who's driving him, and she believes Wolfgang is behind it. She knows he's with Wolfgang now and begs him to come home since she doesn't know what to do without him. He calms her down and hangs up. He tells Wolfgang they'll continue this conversation later and leaves. Once Fuchs is gone, Lila puts her head on Wolfgang's shoulder and tells him this is her way of telling him she has a crush on him. Instead of just wishing she was dating him instead of Fuchs, she has decided to do something about it.

Chen Tang:That is the greater question of does it fit into this thing? And for me, my mind wants to jump to this answer of, yeah, of course I love a color blind casting because... And I'm a genuine believer of like, you know what? You can play everything. Really. If I had put you, if I had taken you as a child and dropped you in China, you would have grown up fully believing that you are Chinese.
Chen Tang:I think making it for me would be whatever had been in my imagination and my heart to really, really feel full and complete, to achieve that for that to come into existence, that to me was making it. Whatever that might be. There's no judgment about that. If money isn't put into your fame or just doing what you love to do or having a big house, all these things, those are all part of it. And I welcome all of it. And to achieve that, once you achieve that, I have a real belief that then our hearts want to have something else and then you're in the pursuit of making it again.
