WARNING: The following contains spoilers from The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 3. Proceed with caution.

In Chapter 11: The Heiress, Mando finally manages to bring Frog Lady to Trask where she is reunited with her husband. Frog Man then tells Mando to visit an inn where he could find some information about the Mandalorians. It is here that Baby Yoda gets surprised when he is served food that happens to be alive.

Soon, Mando meets Quarren, who agrees to take them by boat and bring them to where the other Mandalorians are. As they are on their way, Quarren begins feeding a water monster then suddenly grabs Baby Yoda and throws him at the beast.

Luckily, Baby Yoda is able to close the lid of his cradle before the monster grabs him. As Mando tries to save The Child, he is attacked by Quarren and his men. Luckily, they are soon saved by Bo-Katan Kryze and the other Mandalorians.

It's shocking that Baby Yoda was almost fed to a monster but it looks like the experience gave The Child a different outlook in life. When Baby Yoda is left with Frog Lady while Mando joins Bo-Katan on a mission, The Child discovers that the eggs he hasn't eaten have turned into a hatchling. From there, an interesting friendship is formed and a lesson may have been learned.
