Nobody's Listening

Synopsis: In Nobody’s Listening, Andor makes a few allies and attempts to plan an impossible Prison Break from Narkina 5.

 

The Story

Picking up the story from last week. Dedra Meero has managed to capture and interrorgate Bix Caleen, but is no closer to capturing Andor, but does come away with a few tidbits of information. Meanwhile on Narkin 5. Andor has made some friends in the work crew that he has been stationed with and plans are afoot for a breakout. But when about 100 prisoners are killed in another part of the complex. The group has to reconsider its plans. 

On Coruscant Mon Mothma’s situation is becoming more and more desperate in that she is finding it difficult to hide some of the finances that she has been putting toward the rebellion. It is suggested that she obtain a loan to hide a massive deficit in her accounts.

 

The Acting

Denise Gough puts in a really strong performance in this week’s show as the determined Dedra Meero who will go to pretty much any means to capture Cassian Andor. The scene where she interrogates Bix Caleen (Adria Arjona) really shows us her true colors. 

We also get a solid performance from Diego Luna this week as Andor begins to try and figure out an escape, but finds his early attempts to do so somewhat difficult because nobody’s listening to him. I loved the scene where Andor tries to get some information out of Kino Loy (Andy Serkis) who is basically wanting to play things safe and serve out his time and as such will not give Andor what he is asking for. 

 

Overall

Nobody’s Listening moves the plot along quite nicely and provides us with some fairly compelling character moments. A highlight was Meero’s scenes as she and the ISB get a few promising leads. Hopefully, Meero does get her chance to have a shot at Andor before the series is out.
