The season finale – season 2 episode 8 of The Mandalorian: Chapter 16: The Rescue ‘- gives a high-octane, action-packed 43-minute pack, giving fans plenty to think about. The second season ends in a daring rescue, some terrifying Mando fight scenes, and an emotional farewell.
Mandalorian Season 2 Plot Recap:
Season 2 of Mostly Mandaloyan is about Mando trying to find the other Jedi to hand over to Bal so that he can be trained among his kind. In order to point him in the direction of others of the Jedi Order, Mando first needs to find more of his kind – Mandalorian, ie.
He plans to tap the network of circles and find out where the nearest Jedi is. His quest leads him to Bo-Katan Kresge, heir to the throne of Mandore. He is clearly after Mof Gideon, or rather Darksaber which he does.
Bo Katan tells Mando where he can find Anakin Skywalker’s former Jedi Padawan Ahso Tano. When he meets Tano, she realizes that the child is strong with force, but largely untrained, and his connection to Mando is not best suited for Jedi training.
She believes it is best to let the child’s powers go away because if trained in force methods, she risks turning blind due to her deep emotional bond with Mando. Refusing to train the child (whose name we learn is Grugu), Tano nevertheless instructs Mendo to take him to an ancient Jedi temple on the planet Tytan.
Once, Grugue can reach the other Jedi using the Force, and someone from the Jedi Order will come for him. On Tython, things go sideways as Grug makes a force-driven phone call, and when Maud is kidnapped by the Dark Troopers sent by Gideon, Mando is unable to save him.
Mando’s ship is destroyed, but he finds a way to save Grugu, including a ragt team of fighters (Boba Fate, Fennec Shand, and Cara Dunne). The group is able to obtain coordinates for Moff Gideon’s Light Cruiser, but they require more muscle to pull off a daring rescue.
Mandalorian Season 2 Ending Explained:
Mando helps Bo-Katan and his sidekick Koska. Bo-Katan wants to take back his weapon, Darksaber, which Mof Gideon stole from him. Apparently, it is a powerful weapon, which is important to restore him if he ever wants to have any hope of taking Mangalore back.
Mando is only interested in getting Grugu back, so he agrees to mofo Bo-Katan. Once they were dr. Capturing the Pershing, and he talks about the Imperial Light Cruiser’s floor plan, telling them where Grug’s holding cell will be and where the Dark Troopers will be stationed, Mendo and company devise a concrete plan.
They make their way “Trojan Horse” on Gideon’s cruiser, and the girl squad – Bo-Katan, Cosca, Fennec, and Dunne – blast their way through a crowd of Stormtroopers (who are as usual as we are).
As Mando speaks to save the child. When Bo-Katan and the party reach the bridge of the spacecraft, killing everyone in their wake, they are surprised to learn that Gideon is not there.
Darksaber Vs. Pure basekar
After a brief but annoying fight with one of the Dark Troopers, who are like T-800 from ‘The Terminator’ (relentless and creepy), Mando manages to reach the group’s cell, only to find Toff Gideon. For, the kid pointing to Darksaber.
After Chitchat, during which Moff reveals that he has no further use for Grug because he has already taken the child’s blood for his M-Count experiments, Gideon attacks Mando. Now, Pure Basekar is the only material that cannot be cut through Darksaber.
So obviously, Mando easily wins the fight and beats Gideon. When he brings Gideon back to the bridge, where Bo-Katan is waiting, he is not too happy to see Darksaber in Mando’s hands.
Throne of Mangalore
Gideon explains with a wicked laugh, that only the person who produced the Darksaber can make a legal claim to the throne of Mangalore. This is the reason why Bo-katan was so strong even after the weapon.
Mendo immediately offers it to him, saying that he is giving it to him voluntarily, but it doesn’t work that way. Ownership of the Darksaber can only be won through war. So now, Bo-Katan must defeat Mando (or Din Jiren) in the battle to gain ownership of the powerful weapon.
The episode ends with Grugu and Mando parting ways (save for a post-credits scene). But does this mean that this is the end of their beautiful, sweet partnership? Or is John Favreau and Dave Filoni a way of reuniting those couplets
