Warning: if you haven't seen The Mandalorian Season 2's new episode yet, this news contains major spoilers so read at your own risk!

Chapter 12 of The Mandalorian is another exhilarating ride and although it can be considered as another filler episode (from my point of view, at least), it is still a pretty solid entry for Season 2. Titled "The Siege", it marks the return of Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and just like previous episodes, the stakes couldn't get any higher.

Now, a lot of you are probably well aware of the controversy surrounding Gina Carano's personal views and there's no doubt that the backlash she's been getting has quite the effect on her badass character. In fact, some fans actually had a hard time watching the episode, particularly Carano's scenes, regardless of how good she was in it.

 


But for the number of people who expressed their displeasure over Dune's epic comeback, there are still fans who were beyond thrilled to see her back. A lot of them even lauded Gina for her performance. See some of the reactions here:
 


Personally, I'm not that bothered about Gina's personal stand regarding socio-political issues because that's her thing and it's not like she's forcing everyone to buy her claims and to join her cause. If anything, fans should just learn to separate the actors' personal and professional lives. I mean, as long as they're doing a good job with their work, that's all that matters to me, quite frankly. In this case, Gina Carano did fantastic in Episode 4 so mad props to her.

The Mandalorian Season 2 is streaming on Disney+.
