Warning! Spoilers ahead for the second episode of Andor, “That Would Be Me.”
The latest live-action Star Wars series Andor has arrived on Disney+. The second episode, “That Would Be Me” followed the aftermath of Andor’s deadly mistake as he searched for his sister and his resulting efforts to flee capture.
It’s safe to say there is a lot going on with Andor. Let’s dive into the ending of the second episode, “That Would Be Me.”
Searching for Destiny
The Cassian Andor we all know and love is a fierce and noble Rebel spy. The younger Andor we’ve been introduced to is a man who is in survival mode and haunted by his past.
After killing two Pre-Mor men in the first episode, Andor is desperate to run away rather than face up to what he did. However, his fear also causes him to be reckless.
After asking his friend Bix (Adria Arjona) to help him sell a Starpath Unit to make extra cash so he can leave, her boyfriend misinterprets their relationship and gets jealous, tipping off the Pre-Mor.
At the last minute, Andor decides to leave altogether, but Bix’s friend is already on the way. The final sequence features the buyer (played by Stellan Skarsgard) flying in while another passenger tells him he can find anything in the city, intercut with Andor on the run in the streets.
It’s a thematic and subtle ending that seems to hint at Cassian’s larger arc. Comparing how he ran away at the end of the first episode, at some point, Andor will have to stop running and face the consequences and choices in his past and present. Only then will he become the Andor we know and love.
Andor is available to stream on Disney Plus.
