The Take: The Mandalorian – this show is our only hope after The Rise of Skywalker

It’s the seventh episode of The Take: The Mandalorian, our podcast after-show diving into the first live-action Star Wars series. Co-pilots Blake Howard and Lindsey Romain dive into the cliffhanger episode The Reckoning before reckoning with disbelief about how bad The Rise of Skywalker is.

Warning!!! This show contains SPOILERS!!!

Part one: Co-pilots Blake Howard and Lindsey Romain are excited and scared in The Mandalorian Chapter 7 – The Reckoning. They discuss live-action Gina Carano fight skills, Baby Yoda’s raw force powers and, as always, announce “Cantina alien of the week,” “Surprise of the week” and the “episode MVP.”

Part two (27:17): Blake and Lindsey share their immediate (spoiler free) reactions to The Rise of Skywalker an ending so profoundly bad, it makes you question your love for Star Wars.
