Guns For Hire

In the sixth episode of The Mandalorian Season 3, we see a continuation of the storyline from the previous episode. This time, Bo-Katan takes the lead as she tries to reunite all Mandalorians, including the rogue band she previously worked with. The mission involves taking out Captain Shuggoth, who has an illicit affair with the Viceroy’s Prince. Din accompanies Bo-Katan on this mission, but they first need to fix the droid malfunction problem on the independent planet of Plazir-15.

The Planet Plazir-15

The planet Plazir-15 is an independent hub that has a droid malfunction problem. Two ex-Imperials in charge explain the situation to Din and Bo-Katan. One of them, played by Jack Black, reveals that he used to be a planning officer during the war and was able to rebuild Plazir-15 through the New Republic Amnesty Program. Captain Bombardier came to the planet as part of his rehabilitation, rebuilding the earth his wife had served as nobility since it was created.
The Mandalorian warships in the fields belong to the family who hired them for protection. Bo-Katan and Din must fix the droid problem before getting involved with Mandalore’s sovereign state. They cannot turn off the droids completely with the failsafe, given the people’s vote against doing that. The only solution is to root out the problematic droids, which comes from speaking to the Ugnaught engineers themselves.

The Rogue Droids

Bo-Katan finds a spark pad with an address and the words “The Resistor.” When they investigate, they find a defective battle droid, which they chase through the streets before eventually putting it down. Many of the rogue droids are worried that humans will replace them. The autopsy shows that the rogue droids were shipped illegally to Plazir-15 through Commissioner Helgait, the Head of Security himself.
The Duchess exiles Helgait, while the two Mandalorians are given the key to Plazir. Grogu is given a knighthood, and they get an audience with the pirates. Bo and Axe end up fighting, with Bo coming out on top. Din decides to give her the Darksaber, and as such, she gets her people back.

The Episode Review

While The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 6 had a simple investigation into rogue droids, it felt like busywork. The episode was primarily used to progress the show’s overarching storyline, but the story itself felt lackluster. The writing in this show has been a topic of discussion, and this episode highlighted the show’s lack of direction. Despite this, the episode still had some exciting moments, including the chase sequence through the streets of Plazir-15 and the fight between Bo and Axe.


In conclusion, The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 6, “Guns For Hire,” was not the series’ most action-packed or exciting episode. However, it did progress the storyline and provided some essential background information for future episodes. The episode’s writing and direction could have been better, but the show’s strong cast and universe continue to keep viewers invested.
We look forward to seeing how the story develops in future episodes.
