    @oldbert you nailed it....this is not some simple IM that Grogu is sending out....they will not get what they expect out of this.

    .. @Lock_S_Foils
    A Dark Sabre wielding Moff on force steroids as "answer" on Grogus "call" would definitely not be my favorite :D

    This may well be the case. With the list provided for the poll, I just don't see any existing alive characters that would foot the bill in a way where people would feel Grogu was left in a situation where we feel he will be safe. I personally feel like anyone other than his biological family, mom/dad or both, just isn't going to cut it for a lot of fans.

    Din and Grogu are a clan of two. Take away Grogu and Moff Gideon moves on finding another source for his lab project, leaving Din off on a entirely new adventure. Moff Gideon is clearly the main antagonist, the spear is a clear foreshadowing of more encounters with him in the future. It just doesn't fit with the story so far. I think considering Dave Filoni and anything we've seen so far by him the most we may get would be force ghost Yoda with advice, but Din and Grogu will be together for the long haul I'm thinking. Perhaps in the end of the entire series story, by chance Grogu is connected with his biological parent/parents. It's not going to be answered on Tython in a way where Din finds someone to leave Grogu with. My guess is something will happen that if anything will establish that this clan of two thing was meant to be. I thought the Bo-Katan thing was going to cue a spin-off, now I'm just further convinced Din's future will be intertwined with Bo-Katan's pursuit of Moff Gideon. It feels like it would have a more natural evolution of the story for Din. I expect Din and Grogu to accelerate their bond at a greater pace after this last episode and they become a real effective team at some point. Grogu clearly has more training than we thought. I do think it's crucial that Grogu starts listening to Din going forward.

    My guess about Season 3. I think Moff Gideon at some point will get his hands on Grogu again, setting up another rescue. What is gained the second time via the lab even though Din again rescues Grogu, will have some success leading up to a more dangerous future between the Din/Grogu and Moff Gideon. Grogu is still holding back the limits of his power to. I'm sure I'm wrong, I always am. I just like speculating.

    Din and the audience saw nobody but it seems the force or something went through Grogu within

    Well I would say that with who they did end up meeting, it definitely lived up to the hype. Great episode. :D

    You missed the most obvious one - Moff Gideon! Great post though!

    old man, wise man, I expect we will have a teaser for that in the last episode, that will be a great play with the viewer to stay interested

    Well this thread & the poll was about who might answer Grugu call through the force rather then a more general Who will we see in the Episode so Moff Gideon was never really a option.

    I completely missed that ... I was thinking literally :)
    Yeah I guess that's the greatest mystery of the show. I don't expect it revealed until the end of this season.

    I'm really wondering who will be the one to pick up the call so to speak. There are good options, but hopefully it's done in a way that they are not shoehorning a character in for the sake of it. Although I enjoyed that last episode with Boba Fett, I fear they are getting way from the relationship between Grogu and Din. I also like the idea that it's either someone new or .... no one. If someone more well known comes into play, I think it will be more advice giving than taking Grogu on as a student. Like most of the audience, you see that growing bond between Din and Grogu. The "ball catching scene" is something that I think will come up again when Din and Grogu are put to the test. I also see Mando questioning (with the encounter with Bo Katan) what it means to be a Mandalorian, and whether that's really most important thing in terms of his identity. What is most important to him? I think he'll be put in a vulneratble poistion and go through an identity crisis. You see him lose the Razorcrest. Maybe that's a symbol that the old way needs to be let go in order for him to grow. Think he will be challenged that way when fighting with Gideon. Something is going to go down there. I don't think it will end happy, which I think is healthy and provides an opportunity for characters to grow.

    Whoever shows up through the force call, we'll see. Maybe it's not going to be what we expect at all.

    ^ Well said.

    As for the force call, I really have no idea who to expect at this point.

    Aaaah.. please not. It just jumped right into my mind..
    Do you think Gideon and, as we know since TROS, a whole lot of Sith Acolytes trie to create another being like Anakin with even higher force potential.
    Hopefully not.

    @oldbert: I'm thinking Mando had better modify his approach to Grogu. Like telling him he want him to stay with Mando, instead of implying by actions and words that he's in a hurry to get him off his hands and into Jedi hands. Maybe Grogu isn't that fond of Jedi, the way he was trained by so many different Masters. Perhaps too many times shuffled off to the next Master and never anyone staying consistent in his life.

    @Jo'Rhea.. Of course.
    Isn't it strange, in some way the whole concept of taking younglings and build them up to "Guardians for peace" refusing narrow bonding to a beloved one. One may ask if that's not a bit "cold" having the emotional and social development of a young person in mind. It maybe a better environment like being "stolen" from the First Order, but it still feels strange if you think of it consequently, it's a separation from known surroundings and growing up in a monk sanctuary :)

    So I guess now the question is, "Who will answer Grogu's call?"

    My opinion has changed now that we've seen Tython.

    The "nobody" answer would be hard to pull off now. If they were gonna do that, they would have done it on Tython.

    And with the news of an Ahsoka show, I doubt we'll see Ezra show up in Mando.


    I know this it's such a dang long shot, but I'm really thinking it could be Luke. If only because original-trilogy-loving Favreau is in the driver's seat.

    My expectations are very low. If we do get a Jedi answering the call it will be a wonderful surprise but I think it will be reserved for season 3. I hope I'm wrong but I'm not going to the finale with a checklist. Those that go in with a checklist will undoubtedly be disappointed if not fulfilled. Watch Star Wars with an open mind not with expectations, but hey for each their own...

    Dammit. Quinlan Vos needs to be the one. And not the surfer dude goober version from the cartoon either.



    Dark Horse Vos. Or, I turn what's left of the Core Worlds to ash.
