The alternate title to this recap could've just been "BEADS?!", considering the fact that the last half-hour of the episode was dominated by Cody's late-breaking Beware Advantage and its requirement that he get the other tribe members to gift him the beads from their bags in order to (in many cases unknowingly) grant him a) an immunity idol and b) the ability to vote in tonight's tribal council. This was important, because with Dwight having already lost his vote due to last week's advantage gamble, Cody's vote was seemingly all that stood in the way of a deadlocked 2-2 vote that would've required the dreaded and unpredictable drawing of rocks.

"It definitely took a toll on me as a younger kid," said McLaughlin, now 20. "My very first Comic-Con, some people didn't stand in my line because I was Black.

It can be traced back to classics like It Happened One Night (1934) and The Shop Around the Corner (1940) to modern-day favorites — When Harry Met Sally, 500 Days of Summer and Love Jones. And while this cinematic trope appeals to the inner romantic in all of us, what if we were to relive that auspicious moment repeatedly? With the romantic dramedy Meet Cute, director Alex Lehmann (with a screenplay by Noga Pnueli) takes a stab at deconstructing this narrative device with a sci-fi twist.

Andor holds a promise not seen since The Mandalorian debuted in 2019. Like that landmark, Emmy-bedecked drama, the new series is crafted to stand apart from the tangled lore of the rest of the Star Wars universe, and even though it’s a spin-off of the 2016 movie Rogue One, it never gets weighed down by fealty to what has come before.
