What Will Be Bo-Katan’s Storyline In Mandalorian Season 3

It’s almost a guarantee that Bo-Katan’s story will be continued in season 3 of The Mandalorian. But the question that everyone is asking is- where is that story going? After all, there are numerous ways her story can go.

Bo-Katan made her live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian. In the show, it was quickly established that she was hunting for the Darksaber and was quite intent on taking back her homeworld.

If season 3 of the show follows this plot, then Bo-Katan will play a huge role in the upcoming story of the series. But what will that story be? We have some ideas:

The Story Of Bo-Katan And The Darksaber Till Now

Bo-Katan in Rebels

Bo-Katan as a character was introduced first in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. There she was a villain at first. Bo-Katan Kryze was Duchess Satine’s sister. Satine tried to reform her planet into one that was a peaceful democracy.

Bo-Katan was initially opposed to her sister being a part of the terrorist Death Watch group. But soon, she emerged as a hero after the death of her sister, and later on, she became a major figurehead in the fight to rid Mandalore of the Separatists and then the Empire.

In Star Wars: Rebels, Bo-Katan was shown to be gifted the Darksaber, and she seemed to be ready to become the next ruler of her planet. But in season 2 of The Mandalorian, we learn that Bo-Katan doesn’t have the Darksaber anymore.

Din Djarin and Bo-Katan

We also come to know that Mandalore is now scorched and that the Empire has taken it over. The season ended with Din Djarin winning the Darksaber and thus, unwittingly becoming the new ruler of Mandalore.

As such, he did usurp Bo-Katan’s claim to Mandalore as well as the weapon. This obviously sets up the dynamic that we will see explored in season 3. It remains to be seen just how this relationship will unfold amidst her plans to take back her planet.

Some theories say that Bo-Katan will be a friend turned foe, while others think that another lost Mandalorian artifact will help Bo-Katan and Mando each get separate pieces of Mandalore. As such, it will be interesting to see how season 3 develops.

Bo-Katan Will Try To Get The Darksaber Back

Right now, it’s pretty obvious that much of Bo-Katan’s storyline next season will focus on her mission to get Mandalore back for her people and then unite them for what will be the first time after generations.

The story could focus on her uniting and rallying her fellow Mandalorians for her cause. However, we have to see how successful it will be because she still doesn’t have the Darksaber.

As such, for a lot of the story, she could be going after Din Djarin in an attempt to challenge him for the ownership of the saber. Now, if Bo-Katan can’t get the Darksaber back without hurting or killing Din, then things could be very much different.

Bo-Katan and Din Djarin might have to work together

Then much of season 3’s drama would come from the two teaming up for Mandalore. This partnership would be stressful for both of them. After all, Din has no interest in ruling Mandalore. But Bo wants the exact opposite. But she has to rightfully win the Darksaber back for that to happen.

These are all pretty much-expected continuations of the story we saw in season 2. But there’s is one lesser-seen area that the show could delve into in the next season. This is her continuing alliance with Ahsoka Tano.

Bo-Katan Could Accompany Ahsoka

Viewers will remember that it was Bo-Katan who told Din Djarin, Ahsoka’s location during season 2. This means that both of them are still communicating with each other.

Ahsoka’s current mission is to locate Thrawn, and this will likely be carried on to her spinoff show as well. But maybe Bo-Katan could end up playing a much larger role in this mission, especially if it ends in Thrawn showing up again to take Mandalore.

Overall, no matter the storyline she gets, it’s almost certain that she will come back to Mandalore and try to reclaim it. There’s a possibility that season 3 could lead to an invasion of Mandalore by Din and Bo.

And this could be explored further on in season 4. The main question right now is whether or not Bo will be successful in her mission? And also, during Rebels, why did she fail in her first mission to unite Mandalore with the Darksaber?

Maybe there will be a dramatic twist to the story, and Bo-Katan will think that she isn’t worthy of the Darksaber or another chance to bring peace to Mandalore.

Overall, no matter where the story takes her, it’s almost certain that Bo-Katan’s destiny will serve as one of the show’s most important and defining moments.
