Star Wars Theory

3 days ago

The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 dove into the lore of Star Wars.
The theories are true! Baby Yoda, The Child is being used for his force sensitivity, to transfer that to another body. While all tests haven't succeeded, Moff Gideon and Dr. Pershing are committed to making it happen. This is interesting as I think they could even search Luke Skywalker for his force sensitivity and high midichlorian count. I was happy to hear about the M-Count which we haven't heard of since Qui-Gon Jinn mentioned them in The Phantom Menace when he tested Anakin and sent the sample to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This episode took alot of elements from Jedi Knight II which was interesting to see.
Cloning force sensitives is a hard feat, something that Palpatine and Dooku could not do with General Grievous. Something Vader couldn't do with Galen Marek in The Force Unleashed II.
It seems, though, that Snoke was created via this process, and maybe his force sensitivity was granted from The Child, which feels weird. Or perhaps, it's from someone else...Luke? Ahsoka? Another force user?
I'm excited for Episode 5 to finally see Ahsoka Tano and hopefully Boba Fett and Bo Katan later one (maybe Ezra and Sabine too).
A wild theory I have, is that Mace Windu could appear...I'll have a full video on it tomorrow for you...
Let me know what you thought of the episode!

Love this episode. It felt like “ Star Wars” and had a lot of fan service in it. I just hope we see a payoff with Boba Fett! Everyone wants to see it and I really hope it happens this season.

Thanks for the video :) I hvae a theory regarding the Shadow/Dark Trooper. What if these are the Mandos from Season 1 mind controlled/reanimated ? They only found there armors and we never saw any bodys.

I have some hope that if it indeed is cloning Palpatine that is the reason for the Empire to hunt the child, the Empire will not succeed in doing so. I want this to be one giant ‘screw the audience’ (or bless the audience, really) where they hint that all of this will tie into the sequel trilogy with Snoke and Palpatine’s return; that the conclusion of the Mandalorian in season 3 or 4 shows the child recaptured by the Empire and meant to be used in a plan to resurrect Palpatine - but then, last minute, Mando and all the other characters we follow (Ahsoka, Bo Katan, maybe Luke) will rescue the child and destroy the last remnants of the Empire and Palpatine’s last hope of returning. Think about how great a twist that would actually be: The fans who care about Star Wars despise the sequel trilogy with all their heart and seeing the Mandalorian retconning it within its storyline would be the best twist in Star Wars since ‘No, I am your father’. Then the sequels will be nothing more than a ‘What if’ scenario if Mando and friends fails to protect and save the child. The perfect ending to the series, especially since EVERYBODY will expect it to play out differently by then. Of course I know this won’t happen... those who know what Star Wars needs sadly aren’t the ones in charge.

Theory: I think the show is trying to elude to the idea that the facility was trying to successfully clone a force sensitive for Palpatine and it was under the control of Palpatine. It probably was once under Palps control pre - ROTJ. It is a red herring. in this time period it has been converted to what I believe to be a clone project of the remnant Empire under the order of Gideon/Those higher ranked we have not seen. The Emperor is in the shadows as always. Allowing others to do his work through his careful planning and manipulation. Only a small few know he lives. Gideon wants to create a force sensitive army or his own "Vader"/enforcer. We may find that later down the line, Palps simply uses the leftover clones for his use as Snoke. Thus making Snoke a desperate last ditch effort kinda like he seemed in the sequel trilogy. This allows the show to work around the sequels and kind of in a round about way add back story. Just a Theory!

I feel like with the Ahsoka episode, they are going to go to her last known location and find it deserted, then do some whacky adventure with throwbacks to the films and such, then maybe find her in the next episode after, or some sort of shrine of her for some reason. Unless of course shes already actually going to be in this episode!

I like the show but what bothers me a little is how incompetent the empire is. Hundreds of stormtroopers, deathtroopers, scouts, tanks, air support and they literally stand no chance against 3 people. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Mando would take on a star destroyer 1vs1 and win.

I doubt that Mandalorian will do something as big as Snoke. These will probably be some sort of force sensitive supersoldiers (descriptive audio says that these are Dark Troopers). If Moff Gideon became force sensitive and led unit of force sensitive soldiers, they would be faster, stronger and deadlier, even without lightsabers.

You know what was great about TV 20 years ago? There were not hundreds of thousands of people giving crappy opinions about every little thing. "Din isn't a woman." "Where are the women?" "Why does he have to kill every creature he meets." Everyone just shut the F up! Watch it or don't watch it!!

This has made me think of a further theory... So we learned in this episode that the new Empire is trying to create force users essentially and that they want the Child's blood to do so. I think that Snoke and eventually a cloned Palpatine that we saw in TRoS is the end result that was years in the making. But how do they finally get their success if the scientist was only able to get a little of The Child's blood without risking killing him? For one, the scientist probably wanted to be sure that their unwilling donor would be able to survive and not fully into this whole series of experiments; not wanting to take extreme risks. Plus, The Child is still very young for his species and not mature enough for things like this. To be able to have success, they need a large amount of blood from a powerful force user. We know that Mando is on his way to finding Ahsoka Tano. We know that the Razor Crest now has an empire tracking beacon on it. And we know that Ahsoka had died at some point before the events of the Sequel trilogy... What if Ahsoka ends up being the key?! Think about it! She's quite a powerful force user who also was revived by the essence of the Daughter! She would end up having the potential that the Empire is seeking! And Mando would accidentally lead Moff Gideon directly to her, eventually leaving her to her fate... As much as I would hate to lose such a beloved Star Wars character, I think bringing Ahsoka into this show, may end up showing her eventual demise. When that time comes, I hope that she would only be able to be taken down after a tremendous fight as the grand warrior that she is.

Do you guys like the fact this series is becoming a medium to cleanup/erase the horrible writing of the movies? Im fine with it as long as it continues to make sense. So far, so good.
A B 5 hours ago
@Putins Cat yea i said im fine with it. It absolutely does and is great right now. But like this channel creator I don't consider the new movies CANON but I love this show. That could be problematic for fans who feel that way if it starts to seem like all they are doing is JUSTIFYING those films. Its like our (if you're US) elections. Even if who you voted for won you still aren't that geeked cause they didn't really give u any choice in the matter. Just the illusion

Is it? I mean the episode was fun and action packed, but it wasn't a Pulitzer. Mando lands on planet, puts baby Yoda with baby sitter, blows stuff up, collects baby Yoda and leaves Planet. This is the basic premise of most of the episodes. Like I said, fun to watch.

Putins Cat

The basic flow is more like, Mando comes to planet, puts baby Yoda with someone, blows up a bunch of shit, gets baby Yoda, and leaves planet. I watched every episode of Inuyasha, and he killed a new demon every episode. But every once in awhile, you got his back story, former love, and they put that jewel together in the end. They need to do this as well or it will get dull.

This is probably a stupid question but why was Gideon wearing a suit that looked very similar to Vader’s?
achimay 13 hours ago
This is just a guess but maybe this series could tie with the sequel trilogy because Rey could have been the product of these lab experiments since we know she's related to Palpatine and can use the Force. Plus, the Mandolorian takes place in 9 ABY and when Rey is first introduced in The Force Awakens around 34 ABY, she is 19 years old, which would mean she was born around 15 ABY. Maybe Mando or someone took her when she was born to hide on Jakku from Palpatine. I could be wrong, but just my opinion LOL.

This show is very repetitive. Let me guess what happens on the next episode. Mando arrives on planet. He is suckered in to help with a problem. Probably a monster in a cave. Flies around for a bit and shoots some baddies. Xena warrior princess might show up and do her leg flippy move on some baddies. Baby Yoda steals food (because that joke never gets old) The problem is solved and they fly off to next planet to do it all over again.

Ok. I don't know if someone mentioned it or the story changed. If you go back to the clone wars Ahsoka was a youngling. At this time line in Mandalorian the jedi order except Yoda were not even born yet. So at this time in Mandalorian Yoda was 50 years old. He lived to be over 700 years old. So unless her great..great...great grandma was cloned. Ahsoka wasn't even born yet. I don't know maybe I missed something.

Oh... Now Disney Star Wars fans are very precise to mention the stories of old are just Legends, right? But seems to me that are forgetting their own canonized expanded universe. This is not about us vs them or anything. I apologize. But isn't it in the new canon that the red color of the lightsabers are due to the wielder being a Sith? Please, correct me if I'm wrong. I remember reading this online and my face still hurts from all the slaps... Jedi uses blue lightsaber, jedi turns to the dark side and the lightsaber turns red... Come on... That IS stupid. Okay, on with the rest of the video. Oh, I left a like. After all I chose to watch your video. It's very good, Sir.

This season has been such a disappointment there is no agency or tension in any episode so far and in fact if you take mando out of any of the episodes the result/outcome would be the same. Instead of him being the protagonist he is mere window dressing. The episode where they strap a bomb to an animal to feed the giant worm, they didn’t need him for that. And why would 3 mandos need another mando to help hijack a cargo ship when they have been routinely hijacking cargo ships for a while? The weekly storylines are sooooo weak this season it’s unreal, the steaks are equal to a Saturday morning cartoon. This season is terrible
