Andor Episode 7 Review – Still Great

Showrunner Tony Gilroy reveals that Andor Season 2's final three episodes cover the three days before Rogue One.

Andor Episode 7 review! As per the title this show is still great. Read on to find out why? I’ll be staying SPOILER FREE within this review, so have no fear there. With that all out of the way, let’s discuss what I thought about Episode 7 of Andor.

Consistent Quality

I’ll keep things a bit briefer this week. There is a consistent quality to every episode of this show which I keep waiting to drop and it doesn’t. The only reason I think Episode 6 was superior was because it was the climax of a side story that had been built up. however the quality remains high in Episode 7 as we explore the aftermath of last week’s heist.

We focus on Cass as he tries to take his fee and live his life. However things don’t exactly go as he planned, as you might expect. With Cass’s story we are starting to see just what it feels like to live in an oppressive society such as the Empire. Anyone can find themselves on the wrong end of the law, whether they are a criminal, or just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Then we have the aftermath to explore for other characters such as Mon Mothma, Luthen, Dedhra, and Syril (or as I call him, Javert). Everyone is involved in some level from different angles and with different views and ambitions.


As always with Andor the acting is top notch and the few characters we got to see return were as magnificent as the last time we saw them. I particularly enjoyed Dedhra’s story this week from inside the Imperial perspective. There’s also the chance we might get to see Emperor Palpatine this Season in a future episode. We hear about a special upcoming appearance from the ruler in the Senate, so I wonder if we will see that from Mon Mothma’s point of view? I hope so.

The whole cast are great in this show and it’s all as good as it has been already.

Overall the only criticism I can give Episode 7 is that it was not Episode 6. However that’s hardly fair, Episode 7 felt more stand alone than the previous three episodes, but 6 was a climax and hits another level accordingly.

That being said, if you have been a fan so far, you’ll love Episode 7. Equally, if you have not been a fan and feel Andor is too slow for your tastes? Well, then I can’t see you changing your mind this week either.
