Will Andor repeat the result of Rogue One?
The parallels between Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the new episode of andor are screaming. However, several differences separate the two significantly. Cassian and Erso’s kyber crystal pendants carry separate meanings for their wearers. While Erso’s pendant is a constant reminder of the loss the Empire has caused his family, Cassian’s pendant represents payment for a job if things go wrong and has monetary value to Rael. This shows that Cassian has not yet committed to the cause and is still swayed by money.
Mission results may also differ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the film, Cassian and Erso lead a mission to the planet Scarif to steal the Death Star plans from a heavily fortified base. Though they are successful, their entire team makes the ultimate sacrifice, dying on the sands of the tropical planet. With the film’s plot already weighing on the upcoming events of andor episode 5, the show can subvert those expectations leading to a successful mission with minimal casualties. The quest’s outcome may give Cassian the courage to attack Scarif years later. With andor episode 4 setting out an exciting mission for the week ahead, fans can once again find more parallels Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
