There are lots of virtual watercooler moments included in “Chapter 12: The Siege,” such as the mention of an element of Star Wars lore long thought ignored and a surprising change of behavior for Mando, but it’s this unfortunate mistake that’s getting most of the attention.
The episode sees the return of Cara Dune and Greef Karga as Din Djarin travels to Nevarro and helps them take out an Imperial base. At one point, the trio storm the place and one shot contains a big blunder that you might not be able to spot on first glance, but when you do notice it, you’ll never be able to stop seeing it.
Take a look at the screenshot in the gallery below and see if you can pick up on anything wrong with it:

In case you need me to point it out, if you focus on the far left corner of the frame, behind Carl Weathers’ Karga, a crew member can very noticeably be seen. Though attempting to get out of the limelight, the guy unfortunately doesn’t do a great job of it and we can see the whole left side of his body. And it’s not like we can make it square with the storyline, either. After all, the T-shirt, jeans and watch don’t really fit in with Star Wars mythos.
As we saw with GoT‘s coffee cup incident, sometimes – despite the countless people that must have cleared this episode for release prior to it hitting our screens – mistakes slip through the net. In this case, though, maybe we can blame the pandemic. While production took place before the COVID-19 outbreak, post-production was conducted remotely. With the team working independently from home, then, perhaps there was more of a chance of human error happening.
