The Mandalorian season 3, episode 8 release date, time, channel, and plot

All good things come to an end: the MCU being good, Gwyneth Paltrow’s ski trial, and now, season 3 of The Mandalorian. After a two-year hiatus that seemed to last forever, The Mandalorian has triumphantly returned to the small screen.
