    I'd say yes, imo I was suprised to find out that the community is devided over wether he's FS or not.

    I think I’m in the camp that he’s trying to be FS via science, and that’s the reason he’s doing the creepy experiments with Grugu’s blood. (Not for the dark troopers but I guess it could be both.) I reserve the right to be completely wrong though. :p

    If he isn't force sensitive... I don't understand why he wants the child.

    I thought that was WHY he wanted the child in order to become Force Sensitive by increasing his M Count via a blood transfusion from some one who is Force Sensitive.

    So he can become FS somehow by using Grogu’s blood to make him that way. (Or maybe to make FS clones into dark troopers?)

    What do you think Gideon wants to do with him? Do you think he thinks he can control Grogu’s powers?

    No, but I think he is working for someone else that wants Baby Yoda.

    Thrawn? Undead Palpatine? Or someone we don’t know yet?

    I think Gideon isn't FS. Furthermore I think he isn't part of the Empire, but an early FO.

    Well, the fact that Gideon has the darksaber and dark troopers instantly makes him way more impressive and formidable than Phasma, methinks.

    Gideon probably is working for someone else but he could have his own agenda. Has his own secret side project because of lust for power

    So, Grogu gets kidnapped - what next? It's great viewing for sure!
    Our band of misfit heroes go after him and rescue him before getting him joined up with a Jedi who will train him? Seems fairly straightforward enough.
    If all the above happens though then there isn't a need for season 3. It could all be wrapped up soon and everyone lives happily ever after.
    I have my own ideas on what could happen (or what I'd like to see)
    What if we have this all upside down? Think about it.
    What if Grogu isn't this sweet little innocent creature that needs a Jedi to mentor them?
    What if Grogu is actually the big bad?
    The irony of it when Mando is trying to get him to the good people but Grogu himself is really using Mando to try to get back to Gideon?
    Ahsoka said herself there was much fear in him. She was reluctant to train him. Could he stay away from the dark side?
    And was it Grogu who called in the stormtroopers and Gideon to get him on Typhon instead of contacting a Jedi? He stopped Mando from taking him away and "rejoined" Gideon.
    Imagine if Grogu turns to the dark side and becomes this all powerful badass that needs bringing down?
    How about that for a plot shock?!!
    That would certainly extend the series and maybe give room for other Mandolorians and Jedi to come back and help - Ahsoka, Ezra Bridger, Luke - others?
    You could potentially have an Avengers type scenario whereby Grogu becomes "Thanos" and all the others break off to have their own individual series (Boba Fett, Ahsoka, Mando etc) but all do battle with Grogu and his "Generals" Gideon and Thrawn in some form and eventually have a big coming together showdown!
    It's just a thought anyway! :)

    I can see Gideon being fairly similar to Governor Pryce in Rebels, only more sophisticated and a lot more practical. I think he's part of a bigger overall scheme and takes orders from someone but has his own motivations and way of achieving his goals/targets.

    He certainly shares a similar attitude to those he is in command of I.E disposable.

    In a great scene from Game of thrones, my favorite of the series was the "hodor" moment. Now imagine if the writers on the last episode of this Season gave a flash back of Grogu learning from his favorite master and his apprentice. Some sort of ball similar to the one Grogu likes is being used to teach him. We suddenly find out that this is the night order 66 is made. The master tells the apprentice to go for help and protect Grogu, then off screen the Master confronts Anakin and wades a futile attempt to protect Grogu...the ball roles to were the 2 were hiding, Grogu picks it up and with sad eyes glares at it, he then is carried off by the apprentice to get away undetected, as he is being brisked away, Grogu drops the small sphere object, and as he is taken further away from it you see him glaring at it as it lays on the floor where he was....of course a screen writer could write this in a way that makes more sense and with more emotion, but this could be the "hodor" moment that would grip people of the season.

    If there's ever finally a mandalorian video game with Din Djarin, the Razor Crest better be a ship skin!
