Looks Like 'The Mandalorian' Is Laying The Groundwork For The Return Of A Major Star Wars Villain
  • 3 months ago
We are about to dive into some serious spoilers for "The Mandalorian" Season 3, so you might want to head out if you haven't yet kept up top date with the current season on Disney+.

Some "Star Wars" fans were confused when a standard episode of "The Mandalorian," which featured Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Bo-Katan Kyrze (Katee Sackhoff) avoiding a fleet of TIE fighters as they exited Mandalore, suddenly switched gears to catch up with a character we hadn’t seen on screen since the Season 2 finale. Dr. Penn Pershing (Omid Abtahi) participated in the experiments on Grogu that were initiated by The Client (Werner Herzog) but ordered by Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito). What feels like a detour to Coruscant, and an education lesson on the New Republic’s amnesty program, feels more to me like a major tease for the return of a major "Mandalorian" villain: Moff Gideon.
