The Mandalorian's second season has officially come to a conclusion, and it managed to raise even more questions for Star Wars fans.
Audiences saw a much more action-packed series this time around, as showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni included more of the expanded Star Wars universe. While the first season was a more personal journey for the galaxy's favourite adopted duo, Season Two fleshed out how these characters fit into the overall Star Wars mythos.
Din Djarin's growth from a cold, calculating bounty hunter into a caring father figure is definitely the highlight of the series. Forced into a world of ancient cults, magic sorcerers and secret government plans, Mando founds himself and Baby Yoda (Grogu) thrust into a wider picture that puts the pair in contact with some beloved returning franchise faces.
Filoni is no stranger to reintroducing concepts and characters from previous Star Wars works, of course, and what's brilliant here is how well this all fits into the natural progression of the story.
As a result of what we saw in The Mandalorian's sophomore year, so many more questions have been raised. Rather than merely answering the mysteries left over from its first season, Season Two of the series instead piles on plenty more for fans to mull over.
With plenty more puzzles to solve, here are some of the more prominent unanswered questions that that The Mandalorian still has to answer.
10. How Did Gideon Get The Darksaber From Bo-Katan?
The finale of The Mandalorian's debut season left many Clone Wars and Rebels fans picking their jaws off the floor.
Following a near-fatal TIE Fighter crash, Moff Gideon carved his way to safety using the legendary Darksaber. It was clear from previous scenes that Gideon was aware of Din Djarin's identity, and also that he played some part in the "Great Purge".
Throughout that first season, even the Armourer gently kept reminding Din of the Mandalorian purge during the time of the Empire. Many fans feared for the fate of Bo-Katan, the weapon's previous owner, until she surfaced for the first time in live-action for Chapter 11.
As we learn from Gideon himself, he has intimate knowledge of how ownership of the blade passes from one warrior to the next. However, it is never explicitly said just how Gideon managed to get the blade from Bo in the first place.
Did Gideon defeat Bo in single combat? Or was there a more devious method used to seize it?
