Mon Mothma has a relatively minor role in Andor's season finale, and with so much else going on, it's not surprising people aren't talking more about how her story ended.
Clearly aware that her driver is reporting back to the Empire, Mon makes a point of very loudly accusing her husband of gambling again, likely to better explain why that money is missing from her account. The driver later heads straight to the ISB to tell them what he's heard, and it appears the future leader of the Rebellion may now be in the clear.
Why then does Mon still go through with her and Sculdun's arrangement to marry her daughter to his son?
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter (via SFFGazette.com), Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy confirmed Mon was deliberately feeding false information to her driver and shed some light on why the marriage is going ahead.
"She’s just trying to cover all the tracks. Sculdun originally came in and said, 'Oh, I know your husband.' So, in the end, Sculdun probably thinks that this is really about her husband’s gambling debts," he explains. "He doesn’t know what the real purposes are. But what I’m saying there is that she’s just covering all the bases."
"If anybody comes looking, if anybody’s wondering why she might be borrowing money or if Sculdun is wondering why she might be borrowing money, she can lay it off on poor Peerin."
Mon Mothma has no choice but to find a way to continue funding the Rebellion, so we're sure life will only continue getting harder for her in the coming years. Eventually, she will fully back her fellow Rebels in open defiance of the Empire, though we're sure there's still a lot more story to tell before we get there.
