The Mandalorian Season 1 Finale Letdown

I’m still looking forward to season 2 but Favreau writing on the season finale was….disappointing. It started strong with a funny scene with Jason Sideikus and Adam Pally as stormtroopers who can’t shoot worth a damn. But the back half is full of plot holes and inexplicable character decisions.
1. Why reveal Djin’s face? Ever.
2. Why couldn’t IG-11 take on a platoon of Stormtroopers at the lava mouth, but didn’t have any problems taking on a company of troopers in town?
3. And why go into town at all if its programing was to protect Baby Yoda?
4. Why did the Mandalorians not evacuate the covert after their gunfight with the bounty hunters like they said they would?
5. Why dod the Armorer not put up defensive booby traps when she had recovered weapons and explosives?
6. Why did Moff Gidion give them soooo much time to give up (granted maybe the planet revolves faster than Earth, so sundown may come sooner)?

Don’t get me wrong, the Mandalorian 1st season was better than the JJ Abrams Star Wars movie sequels. I just hope Favreau can carry on with same quality this series started with. This is the way.
