    OK Cantinians.....what happens in Chapter 16?

    A. Din leads a team who infiltrate Gideon's ship, find Grogu and get him off the ship
    [The Standard, Predictable ending...]

    B. Din leads a team who infiltrate Gideon's ship. find Grogu and get into a nasty battle, Grogu is taken by Gideon, who escapes on a shuttle or something at the end....
    [Not as predictable...]

    C. Din leads a team who infiltrate Gideon's ship, get into a nasty battle, Din and the team are pinned in a section of the ship, nearly defeated....when....suddenly a second team comes in on a ship , maybe Ahsoka, Bo-Katan....we get a showdown with Ahsoka and Gideon.....Grogu is found and they get him off the ship......
    [an even cooler plot...]

    D. [something completely different.....]

    they go to ship, fight dark troopers, get captured, so bo katan shows up and jailbreaks them, and every except boba and din go to blow up a reactor or somehting. Gideon kills boba, din fights gideon, gringo saves din and din kills gideon

    I believe the ending would be someone answering Grogu's call from ch.14. Who will show up?

    My take: The episode will be around an hour long. The gang infiltrates Gideon's ship via some sort of feint or something. They expect to get caught, but are banking on Cara Dune's NewRep connections; she places a distress call (or have done so all ready). Not sure if Bo-Katan will return this season, but I _THINK_ it was established in earlier interviews that Gideon will engage in a lightsaber battle using the darksaber? So, Ahsoka. Dark Troopers will be the main problem, kicking Mano's beskar behind and drawing Ahsoka away from Gideon. Ultimately, the gang rescues Grogu (ha has some sort of joker card Force Power display in stock but ends the season vulnerable and weak), and escape the ship as allies (New Rep X-wing rangers, Bo-Katan, whomever answered Grogu's Force Call*) arrive to bring Gideon some pain.

    *Oh, I want it so badly to be my buddy Luke... I could do with a dose of Luke right about now :D

    Din leads a team to free Grogu. They sneak on the ship and make their path to the child, but are discovered and the fight starts. They make their path through waves of stormtroopers but the situation is desperate ... And then something happens. Out of nowhere a pair or more X-Wings attack the cruiser. There is a lot of sparks and explosions and action. Using the attack as distraction Din and team make their path to the hangar, but there is no way Boba come to rescue them, so they have to take a ship from Gideon's. They steal something and run from the cruiser some seconds before it is blown to bits. Gideon and the beautiful comms officer ( because I want to see her also in season 3 ) survive. End of this chapter and the season. A lot of questions to answer ... in season 3 :)
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 13, 2020, Original Post Date: Dec 13, 2020 ---
    I bet 500 credits that at the end of season 2 :

    - Boba is still alive
    - Gideon is still alive
    - Din still have no clue where to bring Grogu
    - No other major questions are answered

    Who takes the bet?

    I miss the days when we were trying to find out the titles of the new movies.

    Since every chapter has a cool title, and it's the last one, I will throw mine.

    As I think they will not rescue Grogu yet (simply because next season should not be the same previous 2, finding the correct place for Grogu), somebody will die (my bet is on Fett or Fennec) and the bad guys will be still around, the title could be THE FAIL, THE DEATH, THE MASSACRE, THE REVELATION, THE CLONE, THE TRUTH.

    Since we know the F&F series are interconnected, I can see Thrawn being officially introduced or hinted at by Gideon
    In Ch.16, it would be a crazy cliffhanger to end the season on.

    Mando was full of self confidence while confronting Gideon at the end of Ch. 15.
    Therefore I hope it has been in knowledge of a really good rescue plan he has already developed, otherwise it has been a bluff.
    If it was just a bluff, I can't see him being successful and getting back Grogu right away.
    Maybe they go for a very bad ending next chapter to have a huge contrast to a successful and surprising rescue in the following installment.

    I think that overall there is a growing number of allies for Din. That leads me to think that not everyone is firmly on his side. Or is on his side until the situation changes.

    Most definitely going to be a team put together by Din. But have these questions:

    Assuming this meet up happens on Gideon's ship, is Din going in in his Mando suit? Is he ballsy enough to do that considering everyone on that ship would be on high alert?
    I mean showing up as a stormtrooper would be repetitive. Unless he goes in as an Imperial officer. Don't know how they would even attempt this?
    Or, just like the Ahsoka episode, just get right into it.

    Aside, from the team, I remember Gideon about having Dr. Pershing informed that "the donor" was recaptured. Also, from Dr. Pershing's transmission back in the Nevarro episode, the need Grogu's blood again. I hope that Mando isn't going to be running against the clock if Gideon has already gotten Pershing to take blood from Grogu. Who know's what Gideon will do in that situation.

    It would've been a waste of time to go to that planets name (can't spell it), but damn the Force User is taking it's sweet time though...

    • Din Djarin and his team at some point are in trouble => maybe even parts of the team die (Boba?) => Bo-Katan & her team to the rescue!
    • They rescue Grogu who is in a coma at this point. Din is worried about him being alive. => Some one saying something like "He is alive" => In that moment we cut to Pershings Lab, where the same is true about their most recent experiment.
    • They return to Nevarro where at the same time they land a modified/armed T-6 shuttle lands => Ahsoka exits the shuttle and talks to the group => She then introduces the force user who answered Grogus call with the words "Let me introduce you to [force user]" while pointing to her shuttle where that force user is exiting. => End of the Episode!
    Of course that requires a force user everyone nows (as his name would be the cliffhanger for the next season. So that name has to be known by fans like us and has to at least spark interest in more casual viewers.

    I'm looking forward to this. The series has set up various elements nicely.

    You have, not only Dinn, but the other Mandalorian tribes chasing Gideon. There's the New Republic, or at least a couple of their X-Wings, knowing that something is troubling. And Ahsoka seems to be lurking around in the background. You have Grogu's anger, perhaps pushing him towards the dark side. And the race against time to stop the creation of force-sensitive storm troopers.

    The season could end with a rescue and a new imperial threat, ones which will involve the New Republic in the next season, yet that would seem to move the series away from Dinn and Grogu's character development and towards a new Galatic battle between the New Republic and the Empire. I'm not sure if that would suit the series but who knows how it will be done and how it will develop.
