The second episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 is finally here and fans are getting exactly what they want: more adorable Baby Yoda. However, that also means more conflicts for Mando, and this time, it involves creepy crawlies and the New Republic.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers from The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 2 so proceed with caution.

In Chapter 10: The Passenger, Mando is introduced by Peli Motto to the Frog Lady, who needs passage to the moon Trask so she could reunite with her husband. The Frog Lady reveals she needs to bring a cylinder of eggs with her so they could be fertilized. In exchange for his service, the Frog Lady's husband will tell Mando where the other Mandalorians can be found.

The mission isn't as easy as it sounds since Mando can't use the hyperdrive since it could kill the eggs. This makes it easy for a patrol of New Republic pilots to find them and the cautious Mando ends up crashing the Razor Crest into a nearby planet in an effort to escape.

While hiding in an ice cave with the damaged ship, Baby Yoda explores and discovers several strange eggs and devours the spider offspring inside. This causes the other spawn to flee and brings in the mother spider and its horde in defense of her young.

Although Mando and the Frog Lady manage to get rid of the smaller spiders, the mother spider crashes into the cockpit of the Razor Crest. Luckily, it is stopped by the X-Wing pilots they have been running away from.

The second episode was written by Jon Favreau and directed by Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed. Although we're loving all the awesome Easter eggs in Chapter 10, it's probably best for people with arachnophobia to sit this one out.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 2 is now available for streaming on Disney+.
