Chapter 12: The Siege - S2-E4

Other mistake: "Blue" checks out Cara Dune's record and talks to her in stellar terms, obviously she's a great gal. When Mando and her met in episode 1-4, Cara said that if she even tried to board a vessel registered with the New Republic, she'd be captured and be put in jail for life.

Chapter 15: The Believer - S2-E7

Other mistake: Somehow during the episode Cara and Fennec, on foot, manage to get to the base at the same time as Mando, who is on a truck. Moreover, Cara is the one with Mando's armor in a sack, but when Mando emerges from Slave-1, he changed clothes, and he's back in full uniform.

Chapter 9: The Marshal - S2-E1

Character mistake: Cobb Vanth says that he's never seen anything but the dragon's head and had no idea about the size of the dragon...but at the beginning of the episode we could see the beast pass through town (conveniently right in the main road without damaging anything else) and its enormous lengthy body was perfectly noticeable.

Chapter 16: The Rescue - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene with all the Mandalorians just hanging out at some bar, Boba Fett retorts at Sasha Banks' character; "if it isn't the quacta calling the stifling slimy." There's a cut and his rangefinder is inexplicably tilted forward. It is back to normal in the rest of the scene. (00:06:15)

Chapter 12: The Siege - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: The kid actors in the school scene several times break fourth wall looking very distinctly at the camera. The kid directly behind the Child does it right away as Carl Weathers brings it there, and when Gina Carano is heading out there's a kid in the foreground who steals a worried peek at the camera, impossible not to notice. (00:09:05)

Chapter 13: The Jedi - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: After Ahsako has beaten Morgan, she holds her light saber up to Morgan's face so the tip is near the top of Morgan's head. In the next shot it's now closer to her neck and in the last shot, her light saber is almost parallel to the ground.

Chapter 16: The Rescue - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end, when The Mandalorian takes his helmet off so Grogu can see his face, the helmet is placed on the floor facing backwards. When Grogu is placed on the floor, it is now facing forward. Then when Luke walks away, the final shot shows it facing backwards again. (00:36:50)

Season 2 generally

Plot hole: Seeing The Child in episode 2-1 minute 10, Amy Sedaris' character shouts "Thank the Force." Up to that point nobody seemed to have the faintest idea of what sort of mysterious energy Grogu was using. It gets worse in episode 2-3 when Mando uses as greeting for the New Republic "May the Force be with you", which is used later other times. With the concept of Force being this ingrained in people's culture, it's inconceivable that *everyone* is completely clueless about Jedi, especially considering that Order 66 with the Jedi purge happens barely 30 years before the events of the Mandalorian, and several characters such as Kuiil or Greef Karga were alive and active during the time when Jedis were powerful and part of the administration.

Suggested correction: There's a difference between seeing the Force used and knowing what it is and the common phrase "thank the Force" or "may the Force be with you." Plus, the Child is not a Jedi.

Bishop73

Not technically a Jedi, but he has been trained by Jedi and does those magical Force things that people would associate with Jedi, and would be perceived as such, if only people had any memories about them. Mando and Greef do not have the faintest idea of such 'magic' having ever existed, and Kuil has heard 'rumors' of it. Less than 30 years. Really, it's a common problem for all the Star Wars saga to some extent and it has been already debated to death. In this series nobody even seems to know the concept of Force in season 1, then in season 2 it pops up with random mentions.

Chapter 15: The Believer - S2-E7

Plot hole: The Imperial terminals have facial scan recognition...or just facial scan, really, since ANYONE regardless of being part of the army or not can just access any information of any level, as long as they have ANY face that the app can scan and identify as not being a known criminal.

Suggested correction: The facial scan prevents droids from stealing data from terminals.

And also criminals from doing that. It runs a check, as I said in the entry. Against "Any New Republic registry", even, which should disqualify also Mayfeld being a convicted felon, but that's another issue. Who designs a security system that does complex checks about who is a wanted criminal or part of 'the other side' but does not check if you are part of their side? Also, any low level trooper (or nobody, even the janitor) can just access any information of any level, including the location of their special forces cruiser.

Sammo Premium member

Maybe it just checks if you're human. You never see non-humans as part of the empire. A lot of non-humans are as "subspecies" by the empire.

Chapter 16: The Rescue - S2-E8

Other mistake: The highly advanced and powerful Dark Troopers, when faced with a closed blast door, punch it repeatedly with their fists rather than simply prying the two doors apart. Even having dented it slightly, they don't wedge their hands into the cracks to open it, they just keep slowly denting it...more.

Suggested correction: The reason why the Dark Troopers didn't wedge their hands through the door was because during that time the door was already closed shut when they arrived at the bay door. If you watch at the beginning where Mando was trying to close the door before the Dark Troopers and exit their station but as Mando was closing the door the door wasn't fully closed but it was closing, so a Dark Trooper used its hand to open the door while the door was closing. If the door was closed then they would have punched their way through. And as you can see if you watch one dark trooper escaped but the others had to punch their way though.

Not my point. They manage to dent the door easily enough. So when faced with a closed door they could have made a dent, then put their hands into that crack to pull the sides apart. But they don't, they just keep slowly hammering it. They weren't punching through, just denting it, pointlessly.

The first Dark Trooper also punches the Mandalorian's helmet repeatedly instead of any other fighting move, and the Dark Troopers try to punch their way through the blast doors on the cruiser's bridge instead of cutting, tearing or shooting their way in. It seems their programming is limited in this way. This is still a mistake but it becomes a deliberate mistake or a character mistake.

Chapter 12: The Siege - S2-E4

Plot hole: Mando's ship was completely wrecked, but two mechanics fixed it to top performance level and aesthetic pleasantness in a time shorter than it took for the Child to eat a small packet of macaroons.

Suggested correction: His ship was badly damaged, but mostly repaired by the Mon Calamari. The remaining repair work was less complex, but still took place over the course of several days. A space-faring civilisation being able to repair a damaged ship is not a plot hole.

His ship is literally falling apart (we see pieces falling off as it moves), the engines are barely functioning and looks like hell. It's not at all a mistake that a "space-faring civilization" is "able to repair a damaged ship", it is when the editing of an episode makes it look like two dudes fixed to pristine condition a wreckage in the same time it takes for a kid to munch his cookies.

Chapter 10: The Passenger - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: The giant spider punches at least two holes in the cockpit glass, the legs going through it all the way, but there are no holes visible in the rest of the episode, nor when the camera is inside the cockpit, nor when he 's talking with Dave Filoni and his buddy and the spider queen is slumped dead, just by the spot she was assaulting. (00:31:50)

Chapter 14: The Tragedy - S2-E6

Audio problem: In the "Previously" section, Mando is shown telling Ashoka; "Bo-Katan sent me to talk to you." But the actual line in the previous episode was "Bo-Katan sent me. We need to talk." (00:00:20 - 00:16:20)

Chapter 16: The Rescue - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the opening recap of the episode a scene is shown where the Mandalorian is sending a speech to Moff Gideon, which was originally from the end of episode 15. In episode 15, he says "He (Grogu) means more to me than you will ever know," but in the recap he says "It means more to me than you will ever know."

Chapter 12: The Siege - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The kid who eats cookies sometimes keeps his hand closer to the biscuit packet, some other times closer to the computer. When Baby Yoda nags him for the first time cooing, you can notice his left hand on the desk under one angle and to his mouth munching in the other. (00:09:50)

Trivia: The series is set in between the events of the original "Star Wars" trilogy and the sequel trilogy. More specifically, it is set about five years after the conclusion of "Return of the Jedi," and around twenty-five years before the events of "The Force Awakens."

More trivia for The Mandalorian

Answer: In (non-canon) Legends, Thrawn was the central character of a trilogy of novels by Timothy Zahn. He was a Chiss officer in the Imperial Navy, who rose to the rank of grand admiral despite being non-human. Thrawn was brought into canon in the Star Wars Rebels series, where he commanded the Empire's Seventh Fleet and led the occupation of Lothal, which was opposed by the series' protagonists including Ahsoka Tano. In the final episode of Rebels, the Jedi and Rebel Ezra Bridger commands Purrgil space whales to drag Thrawn's Star Destroyer into hyperspace, jumping to an unknown location with himself and Thrawn on board. The final scene of the series shows Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren leaving Lothal to search for Bridger, and presumably Thrawn.
