The Mandalorian: 5 Burning Questions Season 2 Must Resolve

Baby Yoda may have been the MVP of 2019, but we still don't know much about Disney's newest star.

'The Mandalorian' had one of the most satisfying season finales in recent memory. Fans got everything they could want to see and more from Mando and company in the final chapter of season one.

We saw real character growth when Mando finally revealed his tragic backstory to his compatriots, while also eventually putting aside his deep-seated hatred of droids after IG-11 saved the day. It also had plenty of thrilling action to boot with a classic wild west shootout, and several moments that were sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.

Of course, that's without even mentioning the instantly meme-worthy moments from The Child that we've all come to expect at this point.

One of the show's biggest mysteries was even addressed as fans were finally able to see what The Mandalorian looked like under his helmet. Spoiler alert: he bears a striking resemblance to Pedro Pascal for some reason.

Still, there were a lot of questions left unanswered, and even more on the way after that shocking last scene left fans eagerly awaiting Fall of 2020 to see what sort of dangers could be ahead for Din Djarin and The Child.

5. How did Moff Gideon get the Darksaber?

At the conclusion of 'The Mandalorian' season finale, a piece of dangerous Mandalorian history was seen in the hands of the evil imperial Moff Gideon.

For the uninitiated, that relic is known as the Darksaber, an ancient weapon created by the Mandalorian Jedi Tarre Vizsla that was passed down through history. As seen in 'The Clone Wars' and 'Rebels' cartoons, the Darksaber would go on to be wielded by a variety of famous and dangerous users including Darth Maul and Sabine Wren.

While we know that much about this legendary lightsaber, what we don't know is how it fell into the grasp of Moff Gideon. Given Gideon's brutal nature, it wouldn't be a shock to discover he stole the Darksaber, but there's almost certainly more to it than that.

Who did Gideon steal the Darksaber from? Why, besides to look infinitely cool carving up a Tie Fighter, did Gideon want the Darksaber? Those are the kinds of questions that fans are going to be dying to know about the show's villian come season two.

Who knows, maybe there will be the twist of a lifetime, and Moff Gideon will turn out to be a Mandalorian who's lost his way. That would certainly mix up the relationship between the show's titular Din Djarin and Moff Gideon, but it doubtlessly won't change his devotion to protecting everyone's favorite middle-aged baby.
