The Mandalorian Chapter 20 Proves Din's Clan Is Terrible At Picking Coverts

Contains spoilers for "The Mandalorian" Season 3, Episode 4

When one belongs to a sect of nomad warriors with a mythological status, the choice of where to hang up one's proverbial boots (or helmet) is a decision that shouldn't be taken lately. In Disney's "The Mandalorian," audience members are treated to a first-hand look at the culture of the Mandalorians, with Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) belonging to a faction that follows dogmatic and esoteric practices that often sees him utter, "This is the way." Known as the Tribe, Din's clan has already been uprooted several times throughout the series.

In the most recent episode, titled "The Foundling," the Tribe is still entrenched on a craggy and arid planet, where they are able to maintain a component of their creed that requires them to stay hidden. In the Season 4 premiere, "The Apostate," a young Mandalorian named Ragnar (Wesley Kimmel) is attacked by a monstrous turtle creature during a recitation of the Mandalorian Creed, but the other members are able to fight it back upon the arrival of Din and the adorable Grogu. Unsurprisingly, Ragnar is once again attacked by a creature in "The Foundling," but this time it is a flying dinosaur-like animal known as a Pterosaur. Although a hunting party led by Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) is able to rescue the child, this is definitely a reoccurring trend for those that are a part of this particular Mandalorian covert.

The Tribe has already relocated three times during The Mandalorian

As mentioned earlier, the Mandalorian enclave in Season 3 isn't exactly the safest spot to be in, mainly on account of the repeated giant creature attacks. Besides the two audience members have seen, Paz Vizsla (Tait Fletcher) mentions during the rescue of Ragnar that this has happened before, and any time the Mandalorians go in with guns blazing, the large dinosaur bird kills their prey. This is a grim statement on the behalf of Paz, and it denotes that the Mandalorians have learned some rather morbid lessons.

Besides this most current covert, the Tribe has already moved at least two times during the events of "The Mandalorian." Their very first covert was set up in the sewers of Nevarro, which provided them a modicum of safety for a time, but once they revealed their presence to the local Imperial forces, the entire clan was almost wiped out. The next time Din comes into contact with the Tribe is on the Glavis Ringworld, a space station featured in "The Book of Boba Fett." Although only Paz and the Armorer (Emily Swallow) are present, this space station is cramped and features perilous falls into the cold void of space. Not exactly teeming with monsters or hostile enemy forces, this space station must have ultimately been less ideal than that of the planet featured in Season 3 for some unspoken reason. Still, the members of the Tribe have certainly not had an easy time finding somewhere to rest, recuperate, and grow.
