Out of 5 Why is She Allowed to Take Her Helmet Offs
Title: “Chapter 21: The Pirate”
Directed by: Peter Ramsey

Gorian Shard invades Nevarro in retaliation for Vane’s expulsion, and Greef Karga contacts Carson Teva. Suspecting that the attack is a prelude to a new rise of the Empire, Teva informs Colonel Tuttle. But when Tuttle shows indifference, he tracks down the Mandalorian covert and asks Din Djarin for help. Djarin convinces the covert to come to Karga’s aid despite their prior confrontations with him, and Bo-Katan assumes command of the attack force. As the Mandalorians overcome the pirates, Vane flees, Shard is killed, and the remaining ones are detained. The Mandalorians are welcomed back by Karga and the people, and move back into their old enclave. The Armorer meets with Bo-Katan, acknowledging the Mythosaur’s reappearance as an omen that Bo-Katan is the one who can reunite all Mandalorians, and bids her to remove her helmet to symbolize this new position. On his way back to Adelphi, Teva encounters the wreckage of Moff Gideon’s prison transport which had gone missing during transit. He also finds a fragment of beskar alloy, implying that Mandalorians have broken Gideon out.

The Titan hides amid shipwrecks in the Chin’toka battlespace. Geordi works against Lore’s persona to restore Data’s dominance of the android’s mind. Worf and Raffi take La Sirena out on another intelligence mission. Seven tries to contact her former crewmate Tuvok. The respondent passes Seven’s first trust test, but fails her second, revealing himself to be a Changeling and leaving the real Tuvok’s fate ambiguous. Picard, surmising that the Changelings are using his corpse to target Starfleet’s anniversary festivities, devises and enacts a plan to trap Vadic and her crew on the Titan with force fields, using Jack, who is developing telepathy, and Sidney as bait. Picard and Beverly interrogate Vadic in the trap. Vadic reveals she was one of ten Changelings whom Starfleet doctors torturously experimented on to develop a breed of super-spies; upon their escape, she swore revenge and formed the rogue Changeling faction, taking her torturer’s form. Beverly confirms the experiments’ existence; Picard realizes he has to kill Vadic, but Geordi fails to revive Data in time to stop Lore from taking over the Titan’s computers and disabling the force fields, allowing Vadic to escape, storm Titan’s bridge, and announce she knows Jack’s true nature.
