Spoiler Alert: This recap of “The Rescue”, the end of season 2 of Disney + Mandalorianul, contains major disclosures.
No Baby Yoda headed for the dark side of the force and died aboard Moff Gideon’s ship as Mando, with the help of Bo-Katan, Koska Reeves, Cara Dune and Fennec Shand making their way to the Imperial Vessel. Mando wants the baby back, and Bo-Katan wants Darksaber and Gideon’s head, as well as his spaceship. However, Cara wants the Imperial Boss to be alive in the exciting finale of season 2 tonight, directed by Peyton Reed and written by the creator of the series Jon Favreau.
So what fell into probably the most amazing Mandalorian episode so far?
Luke Skywalker (a young CGI version of Mark Hamill is no different from the young Carrie Fisher I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and R2-D2 appear to save the day and take the Child back with them to train. It was a shock that no one really expected. We could have seen Thrawn finally appear tonight, and some even guessed that Ezra Bridger from the animated series Star Wars Rebels he was obliged to train the Child, also known as Grogu, but unfortunately the little one was always meant to be under Luke’s supervision.

Luke appears in the last moments while our heroes are about to be taken over by a platoon of dark soldiers. Even though Mando left them earlier, freeing them into space through a lock, they return back to the attic during the heyday when our Mandalorian and Bounty Hunter gang has Gideon in their cuffs. Luke flies aboard with X’s wing, cutting them through storm soldiers and butter-dark soldiers. By the way, the dark soldiers are not that far from the Terminator in terms of metal strength and almost impossible for a guy like Mando to take out; our hero finally subdued one in the neck with his staff Beskar. Before Luke reveals his face, we know from the green sword, the black glove, the Jedi Ascension, that he is the son of Anakin Skywalker.
At first, the Child is reluctant to go with Luke, but Skywalker’s son tells Mando that, as master, he must give Baby Yoda permission to go. Mando takes off his helmet for the second time this season and gives The Child approval. Gideon tells Mando earlier that the Child “was blessed with rare properties that have the potential to restore order to the galaxy” (God, does that sound familiar?) And that he was able to get the blood he needed from the child. Upon arrival, Luke tells Mando that Baby Yoda “is strong, but talent without training is nothing. I will give my life to protect the child, but he will not be safe until he masters his abilities. “
But wait – I’m still The return of the Jedi thing. If you play by the sequence of credits, we see Bib Fortuna, Jabba’s old right-hand man, seated on his throne. Fennec enters, shooting most of the creature around him and throwing the handcuffs of a blue dancing girl. Then Boba came in. The Bible exclaims, “Boba, I thought you were dead!” Boba then shoots him dead and takes the throne at Jabba’s palace. What now ?!
And, although we don’t have a major cliffhanger left at the end of season 2 here; it seems that Baby Yoda for the time being continued, possibly back for cameos with Luke in the future. Given the scenes I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi with Ben Solo getting worse at Luke’s temple, it would be wild if Adam Driver returned to the seasons. I really expected the baby to get dark and be taken with Gideon or become completely detached from Mando.
However, here is what remained hanging for season 3 Mandalorianul:
– Tonight, Mando agreed to join Bo-Katan and Koska Reeves in their attempt to resume Mandalore in exchange for their help in saving the Child. As Bo explains, the Mandalorians have been in exile for too long. We can easily expect Bo, Mando and Koska to return to their home planet in season 3.
– But there is a twist: Mando is the one who takes over Darksaber. And, as Gideon explains, the one who wins the weapon in battle has the direct right to the Mandalore throne. That means Mando is the king of Mandalora. He tries to give Darksaber to Bo, but Gideon says no way: he must win it from Mando in a fight. “Without a blade, she is a claimant to the throne,” says Moff, an axiom that Bo admits is true. So what happens? Does Mando keep the darks sword and become the leader he never expected to be or does Bo fight him?
“When will Thrawn appear?” And Ezra?
“What about Moff Gideon now?” Cara takes him alive, doesn’t she?
–As Darksaber drove us crazy coming out of season 1 with speculation that season 2 would sink Clone wars canon and characters, probably the biggest headscratcher came out of the penultimate episode of season 2 of last season “The Tragedy”. What is Mando’s past with the Empire in the name of God? When Mando reveals himself and has his face scanned and recognized by an imperial computer, that short sequence of hands screams that we have unanswered questions about this guy.
Until next Christmas, when season 3 drops again.
