This is my line
The episode begins with Mando flying through space while being chased by an unnamed bounty hunter on another ship, who is firing at Mando's ship. Since it takes several strokes and seemingly unable to shake them, with the other hunter offering to bring him "hot or cold," Mando attempts a final maneuver to hit the brake. Mando puts him in the crosshairs and shoots him, saying, "That's my line."
With his ship leaking fuel, Mando must go to the nearest planet, Tatooine, to seek repairs in the city of Mos Eisley. Upon landing, he meets mechanic Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris, BoJack Horseman), who typically uses droids to repair his clients' ships. Mando asks her to do the repairs herself, but unfortunately her 500 imperial credits are enough for her to guard her ship, so he leaves hoping to find a job to help pay for the repairs, with The Child hiding on his ship.
Mando goes to a local canteen and tries to find work with the droid bartender, who says he can't help him because the clan doesn't operate in Tatooine and there are no other jobs for him to take on the planet. The conversation is interrupted by Toro Calican (Jake Cannavale), a bounty hunter from The Guild who is on the planet in search of elite mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen, SHIELD agents), who is hiding in the Dunes Sea and has a reputation for killing by major crime unions, including the Hutts. Mando offers to help in exchange for all the money for the job, as Toro simply wants to hand over the reward to become a full member of The Guild.
Mando returns to Peli's shop to find The Child is not in the space where he left her, but in Peli's arms, which was disturbed earlier by her when she woke up and headed for the exit ramp. She offers to watch The Child as Mando goes off to work with Toro, which has arrived with two faster bikes for the two to make their way through the desert to Shand's location. They are stopped along the way by a group of Tusken invaders, with whom Mando uses sign language to negotiate passage through their lands, trading in new Toro binoculars to venture into the area.
The two stop their travels again after encountering a camel-like creature called dew dragging the body of another fallen bounty hunter, which turns out to be a gimmick for Shand to shoot Mando from a distance with a sniper-modified sniper rifle. . . Thanks to his Beskar armor, no damage has been done to Mando, and the two hide behind a dune until sunset, with plans to try to make an overnight move to attack. The two then jump on their speeders and cross the desert, releasing flash charges to blind their use of the thermal sights on their rifle for seconds at a time. But when Toro climbs a hill too fast and the load doesn't work, Shand successfully shoots Mando's accelerator, letting Toro take charge and prevent her from killing Mando. However, when he engages in a melee fight, he is almost killed before Mando arrives and makes her handcuffed.
With a speeder destroyed, Mando leaves to find the dew they've seen before to carry it back. While he's gone, she tries to convince Toro to let her go and kill Mando, as acquiring his armor would make him a legendary name in the world of bounty hunters and telling about The Child, which Toro saw before leaving for work. As he apparently moves to let her go, Toro shoots Fennec and goes out to get The Child to turn around for a bigger reward. When Mando returns, he finds Fennec apparently dead and goes back to Peli's shop to find her hostage next to The Child, but Mando uses a flare charge to blind Toro for a moment, long enough for Mando to reach him and his brother. kill. him. Mando uses the money he took from the corpse and Toro to pay Peli for the repairs and goes looking for the next job or home. Meanwhile, a mysterious figure approaches Fennec's apparently dead body before the credits begin to roll.
