The quest continues

An arachnophobe’s nightmare
During the chase Mando’s ship crash lands on an icy, deserted planet and Baby Yoda accidentally awakens a group of spider-like aliens. This would be completely terrifying if we weren’t treated to shots of Baby Yoda eating tiny spiders. They finally manage to escape when Mando gets their ship up and running. However, he isn’t able to fully repair it. The engine is working, but he is unable to fix the damaged hull. So at the end of the episode, he and Baby Yoda are trapped in the cockpit as the ship labours on through space.
