‘The Mandalorian’ has wrapped up it’s second season and has answered some questions. Boba Fett is alive, there are other Mandalorians out there, Din was in a cult, the child’s name is Grogu, Grogu called out to Luke. But more questions have now been raised. Here are our top five.
5. Does R2 know Grogu?
R2 enters the room as Grogu is being handed over to Luke. There appears to be a connection between the two straight away. Grogu was living in the Jedi Temple at the same time Anakin was training there. R2 would have been at the temple and he has never had his memories wiped. Is this recognition or just two friendly characters?
4. What’s up with Bo-Katan and the Darksaber?
Bo-Katan was handed the Darksaber by Sabine Wren during ‘Star Wars Rebels’ and she accepted it. At some point she lost it to Moff Gideon. When she is then offered it by Din she refused it and Gideon says it can only be claimed in combat. What has happened in the intervening years to change her mind?
3. What is Gideon actually planning to do with Grogu’s blood?
Gideon has been chasing Grogu for two seasons. When Din confronts him he says he has the blood he needs. But what does he need it for? Is this part of Snoke’s creation, needed for cloning, to give someone force powers, or something else?
2. What’s Din path now?
The first season was all about protecting the child and the second was about returning him to the Jedi. What will Din do now? He has the Darksaber so he could try to unite Mandalore but he doesn’t appear to want that responsibility. Could he just go back to his bounty hunter ways?
1. What’s next for Grogu?
Grogu has been the driving force in the show up until now. Now that he has gone with Luke to be trained it seems that he won’t be around anymore. When will we see him again? Does he come back to ‘The Mandalorian’ at some point in the future? Will he get his own show? Could he be the focus of the announced Taika Waititi film? All we know is that we will definitely see him again.
