Critic Reviews for Chapter 7: The Reckoning

It's a superb slice of westernized sci-fi and a much-needed breath of fresh air that will leave viewers rabid to discover what happens next week in the season finale.

Plot-wise, "The Reckoning" is very clearly a prologue, but while that aspect is frustrating, the script by Jon Favreau and Deborah Chow's direction take advantage of the lulls to develop out the characters more than ever.

Deborah Chow once again proves here that she's a master director of Star Wars stories and if she wasn't handling the entire Kenobi series, I'd be rooting for her to step onto one of the feature films.

Sometimes, tropes are good. The Mandalorian delivered its best episode yet this week. Cara Dune and Kuill are back, and with relationships established and stakes clear, the characters seamlessly support an eventful, engaging episode.

With Season 1 wrapping up soon, it's about time The Mandalorian started delivering some cold, hard, Baby Yoda truths -- and "Chapter 7" delivers!

Chapter 7 demonstrated this season's grasp of episodic storytelling while still building toward the payoff of a serialized narrative.

I really enjoyed Cara in this one, too. She's becoming a fan favorite, and with good reason. How cool was it to find her competition fighting with a Dathomirian?!

The Mandalorian delivered an action-packed lead-up to its season finale, with returning faces, a nighttime assault, "more than four" stormtroopers and one gasp-worthy cliffhanger.

One thing I loved about this episode is how it tied things back to what came before... I am very glad that this week returned to the larger story and gave those past episodes more meaning in the process.
