I love the show and I don't "hate" her. I just find her storyline the least interesting -- and, as you said, the most repetitive -- of all of them so far.

And why do we care that her daughter is a rude, spoiled brat? Right now, I sure don't. But hey, maybe she goes on to be some big shot in the rebellion ... or in the Empire!

See, I’m fascinated by the daughter.  The role of a rebellion leader leads to things not really covered in Star Wars, how it impacts the family.  There are unintended consequences
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

I'm hoping she emerges as a leader of some kind down the line, which will have made that part of the storyline be something other than a distraction. Just my opinion. It's cool that a series like this can offer different things to different viewers.

Mon Mothma's storyline is a stark contrast to Luthen's actions.   Mon is trying to play by the rules and she's not only stuck, the walls are starting to slowly close around her.

Meanwhile, Luthen is "condemned to use the tools of my enemies to defeat them."  He's willing to get dirty and do morally questionable things, like sacrifice Anto Kreegyr.  And he lies constantly.  He denies  being involved with Aldahni when he talks to Saw.  He tells Saw that Kreegyr has 30 men, but I'm pretty sure he tells Lonni it's 50.

But while Mon is paralyzed, Luthen is getting stuff done.  The contrast of Mon to Luthen shows that there is no such thing as a civilized rebellion.   You have to be willing to fight dirty.

It will be interesting to see if at some point, Mon has to decide between her daughter and the rebellion.

Waiting over a year for season two seems cruel

Enjoyable season finale, but there are so many open storylines!

Next up: 3 months till Mando S4.

So far it’s looking like the latter!

I thought a few things would be closer storyline wise.  The next season takes us right up to Rogue One.  They also added a few storylines taking the characters off Ferrix, too.  Have to assume they become charchters within the rebellion.  Such a good show

Starting to see Andor show up on tv (ABC yesterday, FX today). I’m wondering if great reviews but supposedly lower viewership is forcing them to try and push it out on traditional channels?

As an aside, as used to 4k as I am now, it’s fun seeing the broadcast quality for this show. Makes you appreciate the quality of 4k more.

Of course, but it's a huge opportunity for major emotional stakes.

Rewatched the Andor season finale today.  So much emotion packed into it, even on a 2nd watch.

It would have been even better if Disney let them use the original line, "F*ck the Empire" instead of "Fight the Empire."  But alas, it was still very good.

I love that the old lady got to beat some empire butt in the end
