One more project Star Wars has come to an end. In this case it is Andorseries starring diego luna and which garnered great reviews throughout its broadcast. Although it did not have the best audience numbers, those who did follow each episode gave it very good comments, especially for the end of the first season. What do the denouement and the post credits scene mean for the future of Andor?
WARNING: This note contains spoilers older about the series finale.
The final episode takes place on Ferrix, Cassian Andor’s adoptive planet. Maarva’s funeral caused many of the main characters to meet again. Little by little, Andor discovers that Bix has been arrested by the forces of the Empire and decides to rescue her single-handedly.
Under the surveillance of the officer Dedra and Syril, who seek to stop Andor if they see him hanging around Ferrix, our protagonist manages to rescue Bix without much effort. Although everything indicated that there could be a great final battle to close the series, the truth is that there was no confrontation as such, everything was resolved concretely and without major complications.
Thanks to a stunning speech that ignites the anger and desire for justice of Ferrix’s rebels, the leaders of the Empire are about to fall. However, a confrontation breaks out in which the security forces kill several inhabitants of Ferrix. While Casian stays in Ferrix to settle some unfinished business, Bix, B2EMO, Brasso, and the Daughters of Ferrix flee the place. Thus, the group is separated.
But all is not lost for Andor. His meeting with Luthen is the beginning of a new adventure, as it marks his entry into the Rebellion. Although everyone thought that this would be the last thing they would see in this first season, a post-credits scene allowed to resolve a certain doubt that the followers had about something shown in previous chapters.
During the series, Andor was arrested in Narkina 5, a secret Imperial prison. There he was forced to work, together with other prisoners, building “something” of which little was known and whose purpose was not clear. Evidently, fans of the franchise began to speculate about the machine being built. Some even went so far as to mention that it was the iconic Star of death. And although for some it was something crazy, This theory turned out to be true..
In the post credits scene of Andor, we see how some spider-shaped droids crawl around a metal surface. These join the pieces of six arms between golden plates in order to keep them all together. It is not until the camera moves away that we can finally see the mysterious structure in its entirety: it is one of the layers that make up the Death Star.
Said revelation allows conjectures to be made about the future of the main character. For many, Andor will soon discover what the project that all the prisoners of Narkina 5 are working on is about. This would help us understand the size of his sacrifice in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If Andor knows that he somehow contributed to the creation of a lethal weapon, it is clear why in that 2016 tape he was willing to give his life.
For now, there are not many details about the second season of Andor. However, the meeting between Andor and Luthen could indicate an even deeper focus on the Rebellion and attacks on the Empire. Also, much remains to be discovered about the creation of the Death Star, and how all the events led to the story we saw in Rogue One. For better or worse, Andor is now indispensable for understanding many aspects of the original trilogy of Star Wars.
