It all got here right down to this: the last episode of Andor Season 1. We’ve spent months with Cassian Andor and his rotating lineup of allies, enemies, frenemies, droids, sidekicks, ex-girlfriends, and so forth. — and truthfully, we’re not prepared for it to finish! This present was a miracle from starting to finish and a staggering achievement for not solely the Star Wars universe, however for tv on the complete. Come on — the conclusions to the Aldhani and Narkina 5 arcs are amongst the best episodes of tv ever made — and so they’re each from the similar season of TV.

But when you’ve a present as dense in plot and character as Andor, numerous stuff might be gonna fall by means of the cracks. So now, whilst you’re nonetheless reeling from the Season 1 finale, let’s go over the place we left everybody by the time the credit rolled… after which we’ll get into what occurs after the credit, too. SPOILERS forward!

How does Andor Season 1 finish?

Okay — so much occurs at the finish of Andor Season 1, primarily as a result of there are roughly 943 characters on this present. Let’s begin with everybody who isn’t a part of the sprawling riot on Ferrix.

There’s the contingent of characters on the Imperial throneworld Coruscant. Mon Mothma and her husband Perrin have been final seen alongside their teenage daughter Leida, as she approached the teenage son of slimy banker Davo Sculdun. Last we noticed, Mon Mothma was disgusted by Sculdun suggesting that she set her daughter up in an organized marriage with Sculdun’s son in trade for Sculdun fixing her very harmful cash troubles. But after studying final week that Leida is an more and more religious follower of her individuals’s most conservative traditions, rather more religious than her comparatively agnostic mom, it appears probably that that is all Leida’s concept. After all, we witnessed Mothma try to pin their lacking cash on her husband’s earlier playing habits by accusing him in entrance of their shady, spy driver. So if Mothma was already engaged on a coverup, it stands to purpose that Leida may have pushed for this organized, teenage marriage.

As for Luthen Rael’s right-hand insurgent, cold-blooded co-conspirator, and part-time antiques vendor Kleya Marki, she seems to be getting bored with Luthen and his operatives leaving so many unfastened ends that want tying.

Elsewhere in the galaxy, Andor’s jailbreak buddy Ruescott Melshi is presumably on his personal, making an attempt to unfold phrase of the Empire’s dystopian jail system to anybody who will hear.

Then there are the remainder of the proto-Rebels that Luthen’s coping with, off and on-camera. Saw Gerrera and his Partisans are nonetheless alive and in Luthen Rael’s good graces — though they belief him rather less (in the event that they ever actually did) after studying that Luthen was prepared to sacrifice insurgent operative Anto Kreegyr and dozens of his troopers to be able to shield a spy that Luthen’s positioned inside the Imperial Security Bureau. Anto Kreegyr and his operatives have been all worn out after falling into an Imperial lure. Luthen’s spy, Supervisor Lonni Jung, remained embedded inside the ISB.

The deaths of Kreegyr and all of his rebels infuriated Lieutenant Dedra Meero when she realized of it whereas on Ferrix — oh, we’re lastly at the Ferrix half. Meero’s hope to seize Cassian Andor at the funeral for his mom Maarva didn’t go in line with plan. Maarva incited a riot after giving her personal eulogy by way of a recorded hologram message beamed into the sky by B2EMO. And throughout the riot…

  • Cassian Andor rescued Bix Caleen from captivity inside the resort.
  • Wilmon Paak — the 16-year-old son of Salman Paak, who was tortured and hanged by the Imperials of their seek for Andor — threw an explosive into the riot. The blast killed Nurchi, a junk vendor who turned over Cassian’s location to the Imperials simply earlier than the funeral.
  • Dedra Meero was knocked to the floor by thrown particles, leaving her weak to a crowd of rioters. She was saved, a lot to her shock, by Syril Karn — the extremely creepy former safety inspector who stalked her on Coruscant. They duck right into a constructing and have a really intense and really awkward trade about if she must thank him. This goes nowhere good.
  • Transport director and good friend of Cassian’s Xanwan is killed in the riot.
  • Imperial officer Corv, who was working in civilian garments and spying on the Andor family, is killed by Cinta Kaz, considered one of Luthen’s insurgent operatives.
  • Cinta Kaz and her fellow insurgent/sorta-girlfriend Vel Sartha pack up and transfer out of Ferrix. Vel appears to be realizing that she is far more curious about Cinta than vice versa, as Cinta’s #1 curiosity is stabbing Imperials.
  • Pegla, the shiplot employee, pulled B2EMO out of the fracas and to the lot the place the stays of Cassian’s makeshift household rendezvoused after the riot.
  • B2EMO, Brasso, Bix, Jezzi, and Wilmon escaped Ferrix collectively in a starship from the shiplot. Cassian bought to say goodbye, with Bix saying that she is aware of that Cassian will discover them once more.

On prime of all that, we left Sgt. Linus Mosk alone, consuming on the stairs. He got here out of this gorgeous okay, truthfully. Just preserve consuming, Mosk.

And then there’s the final scene of the episode between Luthen and Cassian. Luthen Rael escapes the riot, not conducting his mission to kill Cassian Andor and eliminate a unfastened finish who can establish him to the Empire. Instead, Cassian involves Luthen; he’s ready for the previous man on his ship. Luthen turns to Cassian, who is aware of that Luthen needs him useless so he can’t rat him out to the Empire (as if Cassian would, however nonetheless). Luthen picks up his gun, however can’t work out why Cassian has come to fulfill the man who needs him useless. Cassian, although, is there to provide Luthen a alternative:

“Kill me or take me in.”

Luthen turns the gun over in his hand, smiles, scoffs just a little, and that’s that.

What will occur subsequent to Luthen and Andor?

Well, contemplating that neither of them instantly blasted the different one away, it appears to be like like we simply noticed Andor lastly be part of Luthen’s insurrection. This is what Luthen needed in the starting, BTW, however Andor simply needed to receives a commission and stroll away. But now, after all the things he’s been by means of, after studying Nemik’s manifesto, after seeing the cruelty of the Empire up-close, after shedding his mom, after all the things the Imperials did to his associates and residential planet, Andor has had it, formally. That’s what he means by “take me in.” He’s saying, “Put me in coach. I’m able to play.”

Is there an Andor post-credits scene?

There is! Stay by means of to the very finish of the credit and also you’ll discover the reply to a query you’ve most likely been asking for weeks: what the hell have been the prisoners constructing in the Narkina 5 jail? They have been constructing joints/gears/cogs/doodads for the Death Star. Yeah, the Death Star. Makes sense, doesn’t it? That’s what was so vital to the Empire! It couldn’t have been the rest.

And that’s it for Andor Season 1 — and we’re most definitely not getting Season 2 until sometime in 2024. That means we now have some time to attend, and some time to reanalyze each single body of each episode.
