The second season of The Mandalorian was amazing and introduced viewers to new characters like Cobb Vanth and Frog Lady while fulfilling the dreams of many old fans and introducing beloved characters like Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan in live action. But the season didn’t just introduce characters, it also propelled the action and plot forward by leaps and bounds.
After all, till the very last second, we saw Grogu and Din Djarin side by side. But in the end, Luke Skywalker saved them all from the Dark Troopers and took Grogu for further training. So new characters and plot, multiple concepts were brought in the 8 episodes that comprised season 2.
But not all of them are clear to us. As in, we have some questions that we are hoping will be answered in season 3. So let us tell you what we have been pondering on:
The second season brought back plenty of familiar faces. Just that, a lot of them were obscured by the helmets. So along with Din Djarin we saw other Mandalorians like Bo-Katan and Boba Fett. However, there was one Mandalorian missing from this reunion and that was Sabine Wren.
Viewers of Star Wars: Rebels know who Sabine Wren is. She is a Mandalorian who is a part of the Ghost Crew and loves painting. But she is excellent with explosives as well. Sabine was last seen with Ahsoka Tano as the two of them went off to find their old friend Ezra Bridger.
Now, even though we saw Ahsoka this season as well, but Sabine was nowhere to be found. Maybe season 3 will tell us about her whereabouts?
In the very first season of the show, Din along with his fellow Mandalorians used a catchphrase- “this is the way.” As per what we saw, Mandalorians had strict standards and rules that they followed. For example, they never even took their helmets off in front of others.
However, we saw in the second season that there were other Mandalorians like Bo-Katan who didn’t adhere to these strict rules. Now, this is probably because there are different Mandalorian sects and they believe in different things.
After all, during the season two finale, we saw Bo-Katan going as far as to say that Boba Fett and Din Djarin aren’t real or “true Mandalorians” because they weren’t from Mandalore. So this begs the question of- what does it exactly mean to be a true Mandalorian? Hopefully, we will know more about this in season 3.
During the premier of the second season, we met Cobb Vanth. He was the acting Sheriff on Tatooine’s Mos Pelgo. Cobb had Boba Fett’s Mandalorian armor after he made a trade for it with some Jawas.
The sheriff made use of the armor to keep his place- Mos Plego safe since there was no one who wanted to get on the bad side of Mandalorians. At the end of the first episode, we saw that Cobb agreed to return the armor to Mando in return for some help with a krayt dragon that was terrorizing his place.
Now, Mando did help him. But since the armor was important in keeping both Cobb Vanth as well as Mos Plego safe from a variety of dangers, so how is he as well as his town faring without it?
Din Djarin wasn’t born on the planet Mandalore. Instead, he was found as a child and then adopted into a Mandalorian cult or sect known as The Watch. Now, we don’t have much information about The Watch apart from the fact that they follow strict rules. Also, we do know that Bo-Katan was a former member of this sect.
But apart from this, we don’t know much, like where did they come from? However, their name does suggest a connection to the Death Watch. It was a notable Mandalorian terrorist institution that made it a point to align itself completely with Darth Maul when the Clone Wars were going on.
Moff Gideon was after Grogu for two seasons. He wanted his blood for some unrevealed reason. Now, there are a lot of theories about what this mystery reason is, but it was never actually clarified by the show. The most popular theory is that he wants to use Baby Yoda’s blood to bring back the Emperor.
Now, it does make sense since Dr. Pershing was partnering with Gideon, who specializes in cloning. But could Gideon’s plans be something else? After all, it’s possible that Gideon might be planning to use the midi-chlorians present in Baby Yoda’s blood to give himself powers of the Force. Guess we will know the real reason in the next season.
The Great Purge was one of the most important events in the lives of Mandalorians because it involved the destruction of their home planet. Now, longtime Star Wars fans do know some details about it, like the fact that the Galactic Empire was behind it. But it’s not known what actually happened.
Plenty of clues were given in the show, like the fact that the planet was a desert now and had “turned to glass” as Boba Fett put it. Also, whatever happened made The Mandalorians go underground all over the galaxy. Not to mention that the events of the purge were traumatic for Bo-Katan.
This was probably because she was Mandalore’s leader when that happened. So now not only do we want to know more about The Great Purge, but we also want to know- how was Bo-Katan able to survive?
Last we saw Grogu, he went with Luke Skywalker to complete his training. So we want to know how he’s doing. Is he ok? After all, Grogu went through a lot this previous season. He was captured by the Dark Troopers, threw up after eating a lot of macaroons, got frightened by spiders, and got his blood extracted by Moff Gideon.
Now, Mando might think that he is in good hands now that he’s with Luke. But we all know what’s going to happen to his Jedi academy in about 15 years. So we hope that Grogu gets out of that place before Kylo goes on his rampage.
Before we saw Moff Gideon take out the Darksaber, the last that weapon was seen, was in Star Wars: Rebels. It was handed to Bo-Katan so that she could unite Mandalore under just one leader. But since Moff Gideon had the darksaber, so it’s clear that she must have lost it to Moff Gideon.
So the question is- how did that happen? Or did she lose it to someone else? We are hoping that season 3 will give some more answers to us.
According to Mandalorian culture, whoever owns the Darksaber is crowned as the Mand’alor, the ruler of Mandalore. As one can imagine, this rule has led to Mandalore being in hot water over the years. For example, there was a short period where Darth Maul ended up as the planet’s ruler.
So when Moff Gideon was in possession of the Darksaber, then it meant that he was going to be the ruler of the planet. But since he got defeated by Din Djarin in battle, so this means that it is Mando who possesses the Darksaber and such he is now the planet’s ruler.
But he didn’t go to take the Darksaber just so that he could rule Mandalore. In fact, he had no idea that taking the saber would make him the new ruler by default. So when he realized that, he tried giving the blade back to his friend Bo-Katan. But she refused to accept that.
So right now, this means that Din Djarin is Mandalore’s ruler. But the question is- does he even want to rule?
We all know that The Mandalorian is set some years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. So even though the Empire has been defeated, but there are still remnants of it still all across the Outer Rim. The most notable of these remnants are Moff Gideon as well as his crew.
But the Inner Rim leaders don’t believe that there’s anything as such. Even Captain Carson Teva, an X-Wing pilot tells Cara Dune that these leaders are closing their minds and eyes to the existence of the remnant reports. So now we want the know- what exactly are these reports?
Are there some regiments of the old Empire left? Or is Moff Gideon and crew engaged in creating the First Order, an organization that will destroy the New Republic under the guidance of the Emperor who is in fact alive? We are hoping that season 3 will elaborate on that.
So here are the 10 questions that we would like answered in season 3. But do you have anymore questions lingering after season 2? Let us know about them.
