The Mandalorian Season 2 has been — arguably, at least — even better than Season 1 of the hit Disney+ Star Wars streaming series.

We started the season on the iconic planet of Tatooine — where we met Marshal Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant), who hopefully shows-up again in Season 3 or Season 4 of the series, if he doesn’t get his own show — and caught a glimpse of Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) before traveling through space on the Razorcrest with the Frog Lady character (and her now-famous eggs) in-tow.

Then, we really delved into this season’s main story arcs with the introduction of Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) — who is on a quest to find the Darksaber and reunite the tribes of Mandalore. The Darksaber, as fans know from The Mandalorian’s Season 1 finale, is in the hands of Moff Gideon.

Gideon, as we discovered in Season 2, Episode 4 (Chapter 12: Sanctuary) has been at the helm of Dr. Pershing’s lab outside of Nevarro City. Here, there have apparently been experiments conducted using The Child’s blood — thanks to the tiny foundling’s incredibly high midi-chlorian count.

The discovery of this lab may even play into how the Star Wars sequel trilogy’s Supreme Leader Snoke came to exist.

Finally, in the most recent episode — Season 2, Episode 5 (Chapter 13: The Jedi) — Rosario Dawson made her long-awaited live-action debut as fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Ahsoka shared never-before-known details about Baby Yoda’s history — including the fact that he has a real name and he was present on Coruscant during the execution of Order 66.

We’ve already unpacked a lot this season and we’re not done yet! Hal Hickel, visual effects animator for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), has taken to social media to promise fans a ‘rollercoaster’ ride during the final three episodes of The Mandalorian Season 2.

Y’all in for a rollercoaster these last three episodes. 🙂

Since showrunner Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and the rest of the creative team behind the brilliance of The Mandalorian’s storytelling are notoriously tight-lipped about their characters’ plot lines, we can’t know for sure what will happen as this season draws to a close, but we can probably anticipate that Boba Fett will turn-up again somehow, Moff Gideon will continue seeking his revenge against Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), and, maybe, Captain Rex will make his rumored appearance.

That’s a lot to pack into a few episodes — buckle up, Mando fans, here we go!

What do you think will happen in the last three episodes of The Mandalorian Season 2?
