The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ earlier today, and the events of those have certainly left fans with plenty to discuss. However, it's a look ahead at what's to come in the season that's generated the most discussion online.
Showing Stellan Skarsgård's Luthen Rael looking very different to what we saw from him in those opening chapters, the Rebel appears to be showing Mon Mothma around some sort of den of antiquities. This could be how he hides in plain sight, of course, though it's what's on display that's intrigued us.
As you can see, Rael walks past a mask that appears to belong to Plo Koon.
The fan-favourite Jedi Master was among the wisest members of the Jedi Order, respected for his level-headed analysis of events and unflappable calm. He shared a special bond with Ahsoka Tano, whom he’d brought to the Jedi Order as a toddler, and is known to be one of The Clone Wars' Dave Filoni's favourite characters.
That explains why the Jedi was used as a misdirect for Luke Skywalker's cameo in The Mandalorian, but the chances of Plo actually returning...well, they're somewhere between slim and none.
In Revenge of the Sith, Master Plo was a victim of Order 66 and died at Cato Neimoidia when his wingmen shot down his starfighter.
It appears Rael managed to get his hands on the Jedi's mask, relegating one of the Galaxy's greatest heroes to essentially being a museum piece from a bygone age. It's a grim ending for him, but also one that shows how the Jedi were viewed and treated during this dark time of Imperial rule in the Galaxy.
