On the way back to Kelevala, Baby Yoda Grogu tries to speak something like "This is the Way".

After determining that the water sample Mando provided  as proof of bathing is indeed from the Living Waters in the Mandalore, the Armorer declares that Mando had been redeemed and now regains his Mandalorian status. The Armorer also suggests that Bo-Katan, a member of the Kryze Clan, join her guild, on claiming that Bo-Katan was also redeemed after plunging herself into the Living Waters depths to pull Mando out, and having taken off her beskar helmet  since.

The planet Coruscant that used to be the  Galactic Empire Center is now the capital of the New Republic. The entire planet is covered with skyscrapers, and the top of its tallest mountain now looks like a roadside rock. Coruscant is home to more than a trillion inhabitants, of different species.

On Coruscant, two Imperials who worked on Moff Gideon's spaceship, Dr. Penn Pershing and Information Officer Elia Kane, have the opportunity to "reunite". They were recruited by the New Republic and facilitated to integrate under the Amnesty Program for those who had served the Empire.

Dr. Penn Pershing wants to use his knowledge of cloning to serve the new republic - however this is something outlawed by the new regime for ethical reasons.

Elia Kane offers to help Penn by bringing him to collect lab supplies on a dilapidated Star Destroyer, but it turns out to be her trap that causes him to be arrested and undergo a mind flayer.
