Reception

The episode received positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the episode received an approval rating of 93% with an average rating of 8/10, based on 28 reviews. The website’s critics consensus reads, “With surprising twists, delightful turns, and tons of turbo-loaded action, “The Marshal” is a spectacular return for The Mandalorian that doesn’t skimp on the Baby Yoda.” On Metacritic, the episode received an average score of 76 out of 100 based on reviews from 14 critics “indicating generally favorable reviews”.

Nick Allen of RogerEbert.com praised the Krayt Dragon action sequence and Ludwig Göransson’s score.[ Dan Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter was concerned that season 2 of the show might become bloated or spoiled in some way by its success but concluded “The result was, for a little show, easily its biggest and perhaps most purely entertaining episode to date.”

Ben Lindbergh of The Ringer criticized the episode’s similarity to previous episodes and stated that the episode “resembled a blend of the mostly monster-of-the-week episodes in the middle of last season, which didn’t shed a lot of light on the overarching plot.”
