    Last Friday's Chapter 12: The Siege gave us the first time Giancarlo Esposito appeared in the flesh in the second season of The Mandalorian following a brief appearance in the previous episode in hologram form. Following that up, Lucasfilm recently released a character poster for Moff Gideon, and the actor was also interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, where he discussed his character in the second season and the show as a whole.



    First of all, the Emmy-nominated actor answered one of the questions that we all assumed had a positive answer, but we didn't really know for sure: is there going to be more Gideon in this season? Here's what he said:



    He followed that up with some eyebrow-raising comments about the fate of his character next season:



    The Siege introduced the audience to the idea that Moff Gideon is after the 'm-count' of The Child, most likely talking about his midi-chlorians (by the way, a name-drop that hasn't raised as many complaints as one would have thought, so full credit to Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni for that). But Gideon's ultimate goal still remains a mystery - some are speculating it might be linked to Snoke's creation, maybe even Palpatine, or that he is just trying to have some control over the Force and Force-sensitive beings.

    After the events of Chapter 3 and Chapter 12 of The Mandalorian, it seems plausible to assume that Gideon is after some kind of experimentation with living things and the Force. Hence, the question: are you trying to create your own line of Force-sensitive super-soldiers? Here's what Esposito said about that:



    Also, what about that upgraded armor, which some people are saying kind of looks like Vader's? Esposito weighed in on that, but didn't really give an answer:

The actor has been teasing some physical set pieces featuring Moff Gideon all summer long, and he continued to do that here. After being asked about his training for The Mandalorian season 2, he said:</div>

    Giancarlo Esposito has made a name for himself on TV over the last few years since he found fame playing Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad (and the subsequent spin-off show, Better Call Saul). His history of playing villains has continued, both on The Mandalorian and to some degree on The Boys. But he is quick to establish a certain point of view regarding Moff Gideon.



    The actor also gave his take on the big question of season 2 of the show: is Baby Yoda a terrible being for eating those eggs in Chapter 10?:

    To finalize the interview, the actor beautifully explained where the show stands inside Star Wars lore and also pop culture, as well as teasing some what's to come.



    Well there you have it, dark troopers. Hard to not be excited for what's ahead for The Mandalorian, which continues this Friday on Disney Plus.
