The Mandalorian Season 3, Episode 6 Ended With Significant Ramifications For The Final Two Episodes.
The Mandalorian season 3, episode 6 took a break from the main plot to focus on a side-quest-like episode. However, the ending of the episode holds significant ramifications for the season’s final two episodes.
The return of the Darksaber to Bo-Katan’s possession is arguably the biggest event of The Mandalorian season 3, episode 6’s ending. After defeating Axe Woves in combat, Bo-Katan is once again the renewed rightful owner of the weapon, reinstating her as the leader of the Mandalorians. This will have big ramifications on the final two episodes of The Mandalorian, as they will surely return to the plot of retaking Mandalore.
The Mandalorian season 3, episode 6 made it clear that there are more Mandalorians than many believe. Axe Woves is shown leading a troupe of Mandalorian warriors that at least matches the number of present within the Children of the Watch. This could hint at future groups being recruited by Bo in the season’s penultimate episode.
The amount of Mandalorians showcased in The Mandalorian season 3, episode 6’s ending revealed that the beginnings of a fleet to retake Mandalore is being formed. Axe Woves’ Mandalorian crew owns a much larger fleet than the Children of the Watch, with at least six more Mandalorian Gauntlets docked as part of Woves’ fleet, as well as a minimum of two larger, troop transport-looking ships. The Imperial cruiser they possess could be key in retaking Mandalore.
The biggest character change of The Mandalorian season 3, episode 6’s ending pertained to Din Djarin. Thus far in the season, Din’s character arc has been largely abandoned after he was redeemed in the eyes of the Watch. The question remains of what Din’s role will be in the final two episodes of The Mandalorian season 3. With Grogu returning to Mando in The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian season 3 has offered little in the way of development for their relationship. However, the plot point of Moff Gideon’s escape could reignite Din’s story in attempting to protect Grogu from the Empire.
