Since the beginning of the show “The Mandalorian” fans are attached with Baby Yoda and his cuteness. We can’t imagine any episode this season went more than five minutes without the camera cutting to Baby Yoda cooing, or eating an egg, or wrecking some dopey Stormtroopers using the Force.
Until “Chapter 15: The Believer.”
This episode was directed and written by Rick Famuyiwa and it became the first episode which didn’t feature any scene from Baby Yoda. We have always seen the glimpse of Baby Yoda from the pilot episode to till now. Not showing any scene of Baby Yoda is a sign of good storytelling as he is all tired after using his force against the Stormtroopers in Moff Gideon’s ship but fans around the globe have noted his absence and they shared their feelings over social media.
first episode ever without baby yoda,,,shaking n crying

Wow I believe this was the first episode without baby Yoda. I'm ok with that cause at least we got to see Pedro Pascal lovely face . #TheMandalorian

Sad there was no Grogu this episode but I don't mind trading out our favorite bald green guy for my favorite bald white guy. I love how Bill Burr is basically just himself inserted into the Star Wars universe. #Mandalorian @billburr

And that… was the first episode of #TheMandolorian to not feature Baby Yoda at all, ever.
Great episode, but I'm surprised that we didn't even get a peek at him.

They could have chucked in a shot of sleeping Baby Yoda/Grogu in his tiny shackles. But no. I had to actually watch for the plot this time.

Though “The Believer” didn’t have presence of Baby Yoda but it was one of the best episodes of the season. This episode has the return of Migs Mayfeld, played by Bill Burr. Manda and he break into the Imperial base with the help of the Team Manda which includes Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, and Boba Fett. In the base, we got a long scene of Manda with his helmet which made fans even excited. There they discussed the Operation Cinder and it changed the course of the plane as Migs got emotional and he kills Valin a commanding officer.
Check Out: But what was Operation Cider?
In the end, we all missed Baby Yoda and hoping to see an amazing finale this week.
