“Narkina 5” is named after the planet on which Andor is imprisoned, currently going by the fantastic alias Keef Girgo. It’s a tough place with a terrifying floor boss played by Andy Serkis, and Cassian is assigned to a work table with six other inmates.

One of those inmates will look familiar. rogue one fans: Ruescott Melshi (Duncan Pow), who was one of the key members of the team that stole the Death Star plans in the climactic final act of rogue one (He’s the one wearing the floppy hat and glasses.)

This version of Melshi is struck by the harsh conditions of Narkina 5, warning Cassian that freedom is a dream with the harsh new Imperial mandates, and that even if they promise liberation at a certain time, it would be foolish to believe them.

The other rogue one The guest was a slightly higher profile: Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera. The extremist rebel leader makes his first Andor appearance when Stellan Skarsgård’s Luthen meets him. Luthen wants to sell him stolen Imperial pieces in exchange for Gerrera meeting someone named Anto Kreegyr, a proposal Gerrera is very reluctant to accept, both because of his opinion of Kreegyr and his desire to work alone.

Andor it’s more than Easter eggs and references, which is what makes it such an exciting watch and a refreshing change of pace for the Star Wars universe. And even now he feels more certain than opportunistic; Both Melshi and Gerrera play important roles in our main characters’ arcs in Andorand seeing how those relationships develop throughout the season and the show is going to be a real treat.
