ANDOR Showrunner Tony Gilroy Breaks Down Post-Credits Stinger And The Awesome Final Scene - SPOILERS

Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy has addressed the finale's unmissable post-credits scene, explaining how it will affect season 2, and what that smile from Luthen Rael in the final scene really meant...

In the final half of Andor's first season, we followed Cassian to Narkina 5, an Imperial prison planet that saw the future Rebel forced to build mystery machine parts for the Empire. Fans immediately started speculating about what those might be, but we finally got an answer in the finale's post-credits scene. 

In that, we saw droids fixing those pieces to a massive satellite dish we eventually learned was the Death Star's laser cannon, confirming that Cassian had, inadvertently, contributed to creating the weapon he will one day help destroy. 

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy addressed the scene and revealed whether the Death Star's creation will have a larger presence in season 2.

"It’ll still be the looming threat. Rogue One is all about discovering what it is. [Season two is] about who picks up the final breadcrumbs that lead to the beginning of Rogue One. In Rogue One, Cassian goes to the Ring of Kafrene to meet Tivik, who is from Saw’s group, and he says, 'Oh my God, it’s a planet killer.'" 

"Cassian knows some shit, but he’s looking for answers. So we’ll [cover] the breadcrumbs that lead up to that, sure. But we have a situation where Cassian will never know that what he was building is actually the machine that’s going to kill him."

Before we got to that stinger, Cassian confronted Luthen Rael aboard his ship and offered the Rebel leader a choice: "Kill me...or take me in." The finale ends with Luthen smiling, seemingly pleased to have found a new loyal recruit to his cause.

"[It's] a big day for Luthen," Gilroy says. "When he’s listening to Maarva’s speech, it’s not pride of ownership on his part. It is and it isn’t, but it’s another corner of the farm he’s trying to grow."

"So he’s very proud when he hears that. And my God, to finish up the day and have this new asset walk in - who’s been through all this stuff and is still standing and you managed not to kill - and he is now basically saying, 'Alright, I’m in. Blood oath,' that’s a pretty good day, I think."

While it's already been confirmed that we won't see the conversation that followed between Cassian and Luthen, it was an awesome moment to end the season on. Cassian is now ready to fight the good fight, though there are plenty of plot threads to pick up in season 2...including why he was searching for his sister!

All twelve episodes of Andor are now streaming on Disney+.
