We’re so thrilled
The episode focused on one the most famously mysterious
The Mandalorian“Chapter 9”
What do we learn about the krayt dragon in
The episode finds our eponymous warrior back on Tatooine—with The Child in tow—on the hunt for a town called Mos Pelgo. He’s told it’s where he can find another Mandalorian; someone who might help him get Baby Yoda to the Jedi. When he gets there, however, he meets Cobb Vanth (a dashing Timothy Olyphant) who isn’t a Mandalorian at all, but a regular man in Boba Fett’s armor. Vanth is the Marshall of Mos Pelgo, a mining community that escaped slavery after the fall of the Empire. The little town is still rattled by those darker times. And it’s made all the worse thanks to a predator that stalks their sands. A predator known as the krayt dragon.
“That creature’s been terrorizing these parts since long before Mos Pelgos was established,” Vanth explains. The Mandalorian agrees to kill the krayt dragon in exchange for Fett’s armor, and the pair set out on a mission to track and destroy the beast.
This puts them face-to-face with Tusken Raiders, who also want the krayt dragon dead. United by a common mission, they all set into the desert to an abandoned sarlacc pit where the krayt dragon now lives. Mando, who speaks Tusken, tells Vanth that the Raiders have “studied its digestion cycle for generations” when they attempt to lure the dragon out with a bantha. That plan goes awry, but eventually they’re able to capture its attention by using the population of Mos Pelgo. In a big hero moment, Mando saves the day by getting a bantha loaded with explosives into the krayt dragon’s mouth. It’s killed, the people of Mos Pelgo are freed, the Tusken Raiders get some krayt meat, and Mando gets his armor.
