Andor Season 1 Episode 6: Recap

Episode 6, titled The Eye, was released on 12th October 2022. The storyline progresses ahead, with hostages being taken, lives being lost, and many new motives being discovered. The episode starts with Andor and his team waiting patiently at the outpost, finding the right time to strike while they are also looking out if Dhani has come.

The Empire believes that they are not worthy of their worries, and this is their greatest mistake yet. The rebels successfully infiltrated the garrison with the help of Gorn by acting as an escort unit for Commandant Jayhold Beehaz, Gorn’s boss. They kidnap Beehaz’s family and compel him to hand over access to the garrison’s payroll vault.

They are apprehended by Imperial soldiers while loading the credits onto an Imperial freighter, and Taramyn and Gorn are slain in the subsequent gunfight. Cinta is unable to board the ship, leaving just Cassian, Skeen, Vel, and Nemik to flee Aldhani. They arrive on another planet to cure Nemik’s ailments, but he succumbs fast. With Vel distracted with Nemik, Skeen suggests to Cassian that they leave Vel behind and divide the paycheck.

Cassian murders Skeen because he fears for his life and is horrified by Skeen’s selfishness. He tells Vel about the discussion and tells her that he intends to take a little percentage of the salary – the amount Rael promised him as payment – and leave the rest to her. Rael returns to Coruscant and secretly celebrates the heist.

Andor Season 1 Episode 7: Spoilers

This episode was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most pivotal ones that will shape Andor’s character trajectory in the upcoming episodes. We already know what will happen at the end, thanks to the 2016 movie—however, the pointers leading up that Andor can be traced here.

Andor is still very much away from becoming what he is in Rogue One, but we can already witness his edges being sharpened slowly and painfully. Neimik’s death was one of the hardest for the fans as well as the protagonist. The following thread aptly summarises everyone’s views.

We are still very far in the story, but one can’t help but get excited looking at all the BTS stories. There is also the question of how Andor will function going forward, as betrayals are the hardest to let go of. Will he choose to trust someone again, or will he go solo, forever living in a continued state of paranoia and distrust?

This episode will reveal all that and more, so make sure to keep up via our site for all future analyses and updates. Andor might have a difficult path to walk yet, but at least he is getting prepared for all that he has yet to face, all the deaths he has to witness, and all the people he will have to lose to become the Rogue One.
