Warning: This post contains major spoilers for the end of season 2 of Mandalorianul

After registering hundreds of thousands of galactic miles, traversing several planets and leaving behind wounded or dead enemies, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu went their separate ways. But at least Baby Yoda is in good hands. The end of season 2 of Mandalorianul he shares the Lone Wolf and his cub with the return of a certain Jedi whose name rhymes with “Schmook Piestalker”. That reveals the left Star Wars fans lifting their jaws off the floor.

The closing credits of “The Rescue”, which was directed by The ant man Helmer Peyton Reed and written by Jon Favreau, confirmed that Mark Hamill has indeed resumed his role as a child of Darth Vader, although with the help of that digital magic of aging last seen in Rise of Skywalker. Summoned by Grogu’s lighthouse, sent two episodes back, Luke arrived aboard Moff Gideon’s light cruiser at the exact moment.

Although the combined power of four armored Mandalorians Beskar – our friend Din, plus Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff), Koska Reeves (Mercedes Varnado) and Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) – along with two foot soldiers, Fennec (Ming-Na Wen) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) were enough to get Moff Gideon’s (Giancarlo Esposito) army out of human Stormtroopoers faced an almost certain death at the hands of dark cyber soldiers. While the first appearance of killer robots reminded more of Iron Man, this time they were purely Terminator to the end.

But then Luke’s good (and R2-D2!) Rushed in, swinging his sword with one hand and throwing the Force with the other. Like the great return of Boba Fett, it was a sequence designed to thrill viewers raised to the original heroic character of Luke Trilogy, as opposed to the grayer, more cynical monk-monk they met in the middle chapter. of Rian Johnson. The Last Jedi. Not surprisingly, “The Return” resumed the debate over that controversial film.

Now that Grogu is reuniting with the Jedi, you might think Mando will be free. But you would be wrong: the ending offers him a new companion in the form of Darksaber. After defeating Moff Gideon in battle, the blade is now the one Din will carry – even if he promised it to Bo-Katan so that she could unite Mandalore’s warrior factions behind her as their new leader. This suggests that he will have to leave the solitary life of a bounty hunter behind and get involved in the affairs of the larger Mandalorian diaspora. It also means we can get more real time from Pedro Pascal in the third year of the show as he faces the opportunity to drive. As another great warrior once said, “Greet the king, my love.”

Speaking of kings, a post-credit scene reveals that Boba Fett is now Tatooine’s warrior lord, taking control of Jabba the Hutt’s throne and palace. This is followed by another announcement Star Wars spinoff series, Boba Fett’s book, which will debut next December. This is the way … Disney keeps it Star Wars fans recharge their Disney + subscriptions.
