When Disney’s new series The Mandalorian first premiered, viewers went crazy with “I have spoken” memes. But now that Episode 3 has premiered, it looks like the new favorite meme might be “This is the way.” Read on to see some of the best “This is the way” memes and learn more about why it’s so popular. This will have major spoilers for Episode 3 of The Mandalorian, including how the episode ended.
Expect To See A Lot of ‘This Is the Way’ Memes in the Coming Weeks
The phrase “This is the way” emerged at the end of The Mandalorian Episode 3. During a tense battle, the rest of the Mandalorians literally flew into the scene to help Mando escape with Baby Yoda safely tucked in his arm. They came to help after Mando decided not to work with the Imperial leader after all. He was criticized for taking their bounty job after what the Empire had done to the Mandalorians during the Great Purge.
When Mando questioned how much they were risking by helping him, one Mandalorian simply responded: “This is the way.” And Mando responded back, “This is the way.”
It was an amazing ending to Episode 3, and now fans can’t stop talking about the episode.
This first meme, shared by u/wilharris1982 on Reddit, pretty much encapsulates everything you need to know about “This is the way.” It’s the new “I have spoken” for Mandalorian viewers.
And in this next Reddit discussion, everyone just responded with “This is the way.”
Remember, if anyone ever says “This is the way” to you, proper etiquette is to respond back by simply saying, “This is the way.”
Oh, and try out the saying when someone asks you for directions, kind of like this next meme shows.
The phrase is now very popular on Twitter too, and has been the source of jokes and memes.
Really, if anyone wants an explanation for anything, you can just respond with: “This is the way” and leave it at that. The same goes for “I have spoken,” if you get into a debate or argument with someone.
Everyone is loving pretty much every episode if The Mandalorian so far.
Some people think this might just be one of the best Star Wars installments yet.
The shootout with the Stormtroopers was great in Episode 3, this is the way.
Pretty much everyone who watches the show is going to be saying either “This is the way” or “I have spoken” at Thanksgiving this year.
And we’re all demanding that Baby Yoda stay safe.
