The Mandalorian Season 2: There is always a different craze when it comes to “The Mandalorian”. Season 2 of this has been the most fantastic 8 weeks. It has now finally come to a close. But, it is not so usual. It left many major cliffhangers and some big questions before the fans. This all is for the future of the show to answer. Although, The Mandalorian season 2 has drawn to a close. But, season 3 is gonna be more interesting. Fans are eagerly waiting for it to come soon.
What happened in episode 8?
The season’s finale begins with an action series on Disney Plus. Boba Fett, Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, and Din commandeered an imperial shuttle that carried Dr. Pershing. At the next moment, they all meet Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves. Here, the recruitment for the rescue mission is successfully done. In between, there is a promise made to Gideon and the Darksaber for their help. Through the bowels of the old Imperial cruiser, a brutal battle takes place where Din confronts Gideon confronts Darksaber.
The heroes on the bridge were besieged by a platoon of the Dark Troopers. But then comes the tragic twist, when there is a surprise arrival of Luke Skywalker via X-wing. A goodbye is said to Grogu by Din. He lets Luke leave with him (Grogu) to train as Jedi. And so at last, comes the final declaration of Boba Fett. Basically, he declares himself as the new king of Tatooine.
Altogether, “The Rescue” was a perfect mix of great actions, surprises, major cliffhangers, fun twists, and a couple of truly bittersweet moments. So it gave everything to fans to which they could have asked. Now, there is a hopeful wait for season 3 where it will be so fascinating to see how the story goes on.
What to happen to Grogu?
Baby Yoda has departed The Mandalorian. The fans loved the child and he has become the heart of the show. Perhaps, since Disney first acquired Lucas film it is the most widely beloved addition to this Star Wars universe. From the very first episode, this series has narrated the story of Grogu and Mando together. Whether it is a Lone Wolf or Cub twist on Star Wars’ classic samurai inspirations. According to the last episode of season 2, he is left with Luke to train as a Jedi.
But, one cannot say is the character really gone forever? This character has immense popularity among the fans and also according to the storyline, it suggests that it will return very soon. In the sequels’ discussion of Luke’s Jedi trainees, there is no mention of the character Grogu. If we see the ancillary texts that Disney has published, we won’t find his mention there too. Some of the texts mention that Ben solo is the first Jedi Luke trained.
It doesn’t seem that this little guy has made his last appearance on the show. It’s really very uncertain that whether he will be captured again or show up to Din’s rescue in some of the next episodes is very unclear. It looks like the show will take a break from Baby Yoda.
What about Boba Fett and Fennec?
After keeping their promise to help Din rescue the child, both the characters Boba Fett and Fennec return to Tatooine. Both of them infiltrate Jabba the Hutt’s old palace. Not only this, they kill Babe Fortuna and then established themselves as the new ruler of the Tatooine underworld. The scene gets closed with the promise which is again a very undefined piece of the content which is coming in December 2021.
There’s a lot of mystery which is undoubtedly gonna be fun to watch. Whether the book of Boba Fett is a mini-series, streaming film or, something else? Whatever it will be, it is going to be fantastic and fun to watch.
What will Din do with Darksaber?
Din has acquired something new. At present, he has won the Darksaber and is the ruler of Mandalore. He is trying to give the sword to Bo-Katan. But she refused to accept it. It was so because, according to her, this will not be seen as a valid victory by her people. With this refusal, there opens up many possibilities for plot lines and drama in season 3.
Bo-Katan may not be so friendly anymore for starters. She has a desire to rule Mandalore and restore it to its former glory. And the only way through which she can do this is to defeat Din, according to the code. Taking Saber back will fulfill her wish to rule Mandalore. She obtained the sword from Sabine Wren in the “Star Wars: Rebels”. It seems that this particular event changed her perspective on that rule.
On the other side, there are very big questions regarding Din himself. He has no interest in leading nations or in lightsabers. In spite of this fact, he is now the de factor ruler of his people. And now as the Gorgu has gone, he will need a new purpose to fight for. This particular event can be a remarkable plot for season 3. Will he try to unite the remaining coverts and restore the planets? Maybe. Ultimately fans don’t know what Din is deciding for another year but that doesn’t mean they cannot theorize.
What will Moff Gideon and his remnant become?
At the end of “The Rescue”, Moff Gideon is lying on the floor, knocked unconscious by Cara Dune’s hand. It is expected that she will return him to new Republic custody. This will definitely give a plotline that may continue in the next season. In this present season to visit that Imperial fleet was yet to be seen. It is so because it has been seen flying solo when Mando and party boarded it.
The Mandalorian Season 2: What’s next in season 3?
There was a cameo of Luke Skywalker in “The Rescue”. This was really a great way to draw season 2 to an end. In the next season, Luke can come up with another short-lived cameo. His comeback could probably mark the door open for the last Star Wars characters to be a part of The Mandalorian’s future.
Leia Organa could be one of those faces which the fans will see. Probably, many characters including young Jedi Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Hera Syndulla will be in the next season. There are very few names with could return in the future. However, the option opened up by season 2 are sprawling and incredibly exciting. There is a long wait for the show to return and the fans have a lot to think about it.
