The Telly That Kept Us Talking: The Mandalorian

Ahead of this year’s Virgin Media BAFTAs, we’re celebrating the TV moments that brought us together in 2020. The newest episode deals with the return of a familiar face in The Mandalorian

By Virgin Media

For every generation born since the 1950s, television has largely been taken for granted. And in 70 years, there’s rarely been a time when we were more thankful for it than in 2020. So, we’ve been travelling the country to speak to the great British public and to reflect on the amazing TV from the past year.


With The Mandalorian nominated for the Virgin Media Must-See Moment of 2020 at next month’s Virgin Media BAFTAs, we wanted to find out what the show’s shocking final reveal, and the series as a whole, meant to the nation.

The Mandalorian – Luke Skywalker appears

Grogu’s been rescued, but the Mandalorian and his allies are still trapped aboard Moff Gideon’s starship with Imperial Dark Troopers closing in.


Out of nowhere, a lone X-wing Starfighter appears out the window and lands in the ship’s docking bay. The enemy droids turn to meet the new arrival – a mysterious hooded figure dressed in black – who, wielding a green lightsaber, makes easy prey of the droids.


Through the monitors, Grogu appears to connect with this unknown Force-wielder. With the Dark Troopers gone, the Mandalorian orders the blast doors to be opened and the figure enters.


A young Luke Skywalker pulls off his hood – the Jedi Knight has arrived to take Grogu under his care, so the Mandalorian must say goodbye to his small companion.
