Prior to the Season 1 finale, Andor remained relatively self-contained within the Star Wars universe. Earlier shows, like Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Mandalorian, prioritize the connection to previous Star Wars projects, but Andor succeeded by doing the opposite.
The post-credits scene not only showed how “Andor” fits into the overall “Star Wars” storyline, but left fans shocked by its massive revelation. Everyone quickly took to social media to freak out over the final scene. On twitter, @BetsyTabor expressed how “Andor” blew her mind by saying “OMG WHAT A FINALE!! And that post credits scene, wow!!! Guys, do yourself a favor and check out this absolutely amazing show!!!! WELL!!!!!!!” @Bemidjijohn found the final revelation to be a perfect ending to season one, saying, “Don’t miss the post-credits scene in the ‘Andor’ finale. She’s PERFECT.” Both @Solid_Brix and @AubrieOrganaThey, definite “Star Wars” fans, explained that the Death Star scene left them completely speechless, overwhelmed and in tears.
On Reddit, fans debated the season finale, but it was u/MylordGonk who informed many that the episode contained a post-credits scene. Afterward, many went back to watch the content they missed and couldn’t believe what the show revealed. Many fans described the scene as chilled, great and awesome. Other users, like u/retropit, focused on the cinematography, saying, “Boy, do you know how to frame shots and create lasting images… That credits scene is worth a wallpaper.” U/VanillaTortilla and u/sumrz echoed the statement and noticed how the final scene mimicked the opening scene of “Andor”.
