Star Wars Fans Love to Hate and Hate to Love the Surprise Cameos in ‘The Mandalorian’ Finale

Star Wars Fans Love to Hate and Hate to Love the Surprise Cameos in ‘The Mandalorian‘ Finale. SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers for the season finale of The Mandalorian! DO NOT READ if you want to avoid spoilers. You have been warned…

In one of the most iconic side character scenes to ever grace the screen for Star Wars Fans we learned to both love and hate the opening scene of The Mandalorian Episode 8: Redemption. The episode opens with the two stormtroopers reaching their rendezvous point with “The Asset” in hand… or bag I should say. The two quickly become bored when they are instructed to wait for Mof Gideon to finish dealing with “Mando” and his friends and begin arguing over “The Child” and also hilariously pull out their blasters and continue to miss a relatively close target to their speeder bikes. You know, because Stormtroopers can’t aim to literally save their lives.

Needless to say, the Internet may have been amused by the quarreling and games, that is, until they begin hitting “The Asset” for making noise, moving around, and biting one of the troopers on his finger when he bothered him. MANY fans are very upset with actors Jason Sideikis and Adam Pally who portrayed the duo in this scene, for “harming” The Internets collective favorite thing at the moment, “Baby Yoda.”

Clearly no infantile aliens were harmed in the making of this episode, in fact, our new favorite droid, IG-88, now known as IG-11, returned and quickly served some well deserved karma to the pair while saving “Baby Yoda” from further harm. Check out some of the rather strong reactions to the surprise cameos from some folks on twitter this weekend:
