"The Mandalorian" Fans Spotted a Hilarious Mistake in the Latest Episode

The fanbase wants to know everything about this accidental new character.

Making a TV show—especially one as epic as The Mandalorian—is a complicated business, and even with consummate professionals at every level of production, goofs and bloopers still happen. For some reason, those gaffes are even funnier when they allow a little bit of our world to slip into a heightened universe. Who could forget the infamous Game of Thrones Starbucks cup, for example? Well, reality recently infiltrated the Star Wars universe as well, as eagle-eyed Disney+ watchers first spotted. There's a pretty hilarious mistake in the latest episode of The Mandalorian, and some fans are even hoping it'll become part of the space western's canon.

The glaring goof takes place in the fourth episode of Season 2, "Chapter 12: The Siege," which premiered on the streaming service on Friday. Mando (Pedro Pascal) has teamed back up with former allies Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) to ambush an old Imperial base. As they draw their blasters against some Empire lackeys, you can see something that definitely doesn't belong behind Greef. It's a crew member, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt and wearing a watch. The mistake happens about 18 minutes into the episode.

Far from being annoyed by the error, The Mandalorian fans have rallied behind the anonymous crew member, who social media has dubbed "Jeans Guy." In fact, some of them want the show to feature even more of Jeans Guy's adventures. There are so many questions to answer about this accidental character. What's he doing on that base? Is he friend or foe? And most importantly, would the Child try to eat him if given a chance? (Probably.)

One fan artist even created some concept art for the Jeans Guy action figure, which includes the wall he's partially hidden behind.

So who's responsible? According to Clark, the culprit—Conleth Hill, who played Varys—confessed to her.

For years, it was theorized that it might have been the show's mysterious Smoke Monster causing the further destruction, but co-creator Damon Lindelof debunked that guess in a podcast. The black object? Just a CGI snafu.
