Now add to the list the explosive ending of Andor Season 1.
Here’s what happened and what it means for Season 2.
What is the Andor Finale end credits scene?
of Andor The slow-moving Byzantine plots come to a head in the explosive Season 1 finale, “Rix Road.” On the desert planet Ferrix, Maarva’s death serves as a catalyst to bring everyone together. Cassian spent a few episodes in the grim Imperial Prison Complex on Narkina 5, but escaped in “One Way Out”, only to learn of her mother’s death. Naturally, Cassian wanted to attend the funeral, as expected by both the Empire, which wants to question him, and the Luthen gang, who want to eliminate him, thus tying up loose ends.
The ending is tense, as Cassian’s rivals search for him and the residents of Ferrix celebrate Maarva’s life. The tension reaches its peak when Maarva appears in an oversized hologram projection to issue a rousing call to fight the Empire. There are more than a few casualties in the mutiny that follows. But the seeds of rebellion are sown as the credits begin to roll, with Cassian joining Luthen.
Fans who stuck around are rewarded with an end credits scene that has nothing to do with the events of the finale. Rather, it showcases one of the most iconic objects around Star Wars: The Death Star More than that, however, confirmed suspicions that Cassian and his fellow inmates had been building parts of the space station on Narkina 5.

What Andor’s End Credits Scene Means For Season 2
The Death Star scene demonstrates just how shocking Andor Season 1 is wholesale Star Wars galaxy. It is set in 5 BBY (before the battle of Yavin), and the post-credits sequence establishes that the planet-destroying space station was nearly finished at that time. Given the timeline, it might seem strange that it took five years to set up the Death Star dish, but it actually makes a lot of sense. Cassian’s escape from Narkina 5 clearly left the Empire struggling. He didn’t have enough parts to finish, and in that way, Cassian was already benefiting the Rebellion.
the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story means that Cassian and the Rebellion cannot discover the Death Star during Andor. Therefore, the end credits scene will affect the viewers more than the characters. It will create a sense of dread as Cassian, Luthen, and Mon Mothma attempt to consolidate the Rebellion in Season 2.
However, there is a loophole: Luthen does not appear in rogue oneso everything indicates that he will not be able to get out of Andor live. Because of that, it’s possible that she learns about the Death Star and gets killed for what she knows. However, the real question is whether Cassian ever finds out that she helped build the deadly space station. If she does, she would explain why he was so eager to help destroy it in the first place. Rogue One. But even if he doesn’t, it still makes his death all the more tragic.
