This Star Wars: Andor article comprises spoilers.
There was just one method Andor season 1 may finish. Since we already know from Rogue One that Cassian ultimately turns into a spy for the Insurrection and on the staff that breaks into an Imperial stronghold to steal the Loss of life Star plans, the primary season wanted to conclude with Cassian taking his first correct steps to affix the Insurgent Alliance. That occurs when Cassian confronts Luthen Rael, the Insurgent chief generally known as “Axis,” and asks to be introduced into the fold. After what Cassian noticed and suffered within the jail on Narkina 5, he’s able to lastly “struggle these bastards,” as Luthen would say.
We don’t get to see what occurs subsequent, however we will guess that when the present returns it’ll comply with Cassian on one other Insurgent mission for Axis. Whereas Andor season 1 begins 5 years earlier than Rogue One and covers a single 12 months in Cassian’s life, the second season will chronicle the following 4, which means there’s loads of time to discover how all of the totally different teams that make up the Alliance united below one banner and the way the Rebels lastly established their secret base on Yavin IV. As of the top of season 1, Cassian and Mon Mothma even have but to cross paths, one other plot level the second season must cowl because it rushes to the occasions of Rogue One.
A shock post-credits scene on the finish of the Andor finale teases one more potential storyline looming for season 2, and it’s a second that additionally solutions one of many present’s greatest questions. Ever since Cassian entered the jail in episode 8 and was put to work on an meeting line constructing machine elements for an undisclosed objective, Star Wars followers have been questioning what precisely the prisoners had been constructing for the Empire. Many theories have been circulated on Reddit boards and social media. Had been Cassian and the others engaged on TIE Fighter elements? Had been they items of AT-STs? A good darker principle: some followers speculated the Narkina prisoners had been constructing ineffective machine elements in a single part of the jail and disassembling them in one other as a very merciless type of torture.
