Warning - This article contains spoilers for The Mandalorian Season 2.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is in the midst of expanding the show's lore by including iconic Star Wars characters from the past, but the latest episode goes back to its Season 1 ties by bringing back familiar ones. Directed by Carl Weathers (who also plays Greef Karga in the show), "Chapter 12" featured a high-stakes battle in Nevarro while also hinting at the plans of Moff Gideon for Baby Yoda.
"Chapter 12" managed to deliver a sense of nostalgia due to the reunion of Mando, Greef, and Cara Dune, serving as a reminder of the entertaining character beats of the trio during Season 1. In addition, the Mythrol, who was portrayed by Horatio Sanz, also made his triumphant return in the episode, adding humor to the already-intense episode.
However, it seems that these characters weren't the only notable guest stars in "Chapter 12," and eagle-eyed fans may have noticed an unexpected cameo out of nowhere.
"Chapter 12" of The Mandalorian Season 2 featured a hilarious cameo from a crew member in one of the pivotal scenes of the episode. At the 18:54 mark of "Chapter 12: The Seige," a crew member in jeans and a t-shirt can be spotted in the background while Mando, Cara Dune, and Greef Karga are exchanging fire with the stormtroopers.
It seems that the intense blaster exchange between The Mandalorian's protagonists and the stormtroopers was too much to handle on the editing floor, and the crew member's presence was ultimately not noticed. Despite that, this glaring mistake can be forgiven by fans, especially after another impressive episode from The Mandalorian Season 2.
Aside from fan-favorite Star Wars characters, The Mandalorian is also known to include major celebrity cameos. Season 2 already featured the likes of Kim's Convenience's Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (twice) and The Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni as X-Wing pilots from the New Republic. In addition, the latest episode also featured Ryan Powers (Agents of SHIELD) as the alien worker who placed the tracker in the Razor Crest, as well as Black Lightning's Katy O' Brian as an Imperial officer.
If anything, it will be interesting to see the inclusion of more celebrity cameos in the realm of The Mandalorian. Hopefully, no more crew members will appear again in the latter part of the season, but this doesn't diminish the fact that The Mandalorian Season 2 is off to an impressive start.
