The seventh episode of "Andor" shows us that everyone in a fascist galaxy is living in a prison.

Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) foolishly returns to Ferrix after stealing from Aldhani.

The Empire sweeps him up into custody for something he didn't actually do.

"Andor" offers glimpses into the past and futures of two of its main characters.

Mon Mothma is a prisoner in her own home, unable to trust her family or anyone close to her.

No one is safe, no matter how high up chain of command they are.

"Episode 7" gives us a look at Cassian from "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".

The character is locked in a prison of his own making.

Clem feels very much as though he's filling that role for Cassian in this new film.

The entire Imperial Security Bureau is overly-bright with white walls, much like the dystopian future of George Lucas's "THX-1138".

"Andor" picks up on the events of "Episode IV – A New Hope".

Admiral Yularen is an important player in the "Star Wars" universe.

He's even put on the uniform of his jailers, trading his suit for the muted grays of the Empire.

Some of these are prisons of their own making, some are more metaphorical than others.

The only person who seems to be free in this episode is Maarva because she's finally answering the call to resist.
