We’re beyond the halfway point in Star Wars serieswith episode 7 hitting . After from the Empire as part of a major rebel heist, Cassian Andor ( ) turned down an offer to betray his new allies and run off with the money.
Distraught after killing his would-be partner in crime, he goes it alone again. We know he’ll be back with the rebels eventually though, since this is all part of his journey to becoming the morally questionable hero we meet in.

The episode’s final major moments find Cassian on lovely beach world Niamos, where he’s got a sweet pad, a lady friend and is going by the name Keef Girgo.
Unfortunately, he’s soon reminded that escaping Imperial oppression is impossible. On his morning stroll to the store, a shoretrooper falsely accuses him of being part of some anti-Imperial activity and orders a passing KX security droid to “hang onto this one” for him.
Unable to grasp trooper’s casual phrasing, the imposing droid hoists Cassian into the air and pins him against a wall by his neck.
