The Mandalorian Season 2 rumored new additions: Bo-Katan Kryze
One important factor to what we might see during Season 2 is the involvement of Lady Bo-Katan Kryze who was the last known person to have the Darksaber, the weapon seen wielded by Moff Gideon.
For Clone Wars and Rebels fans, the weapon is incredibly familiar and when we saw the Imperial lackey with the black bladed laser sword, we had to wonder how he got it. However, anyone who has not seen these shows will just see the blade as another a new cool lightsaber.
Now, you’re probably wondering where Bo-Katan comes into the Skywalker Saga. She has plenty of experience with Anakin, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan. She’s worked with the three of them a number of times over the course of the Clone Wars.
Bo is the sister of Obi-Wan’s late ex-girlfriend, Satine and the relationship between the duchess and the Jedi Knight was basically the worst kept secret outside of Anakin and Padmé’s marriage.
If we’re honest, Bo appearing in The Mandalorian has more weight than the other Skywalker Saga centric characters, given Moff Gideon now has the Darksaber which was last seen in Lady Kryze’s hands in Star Wars Rebels. Though, it might be too soon. Why? Well, given the series is set up to focus on Din Djarin and Baby Yoda, the logical answer would be yes, but if you take away both of those factors, it would be a no.
The reason for the no is because of how the Darksaber has come into play. Was it stolen? Could Bo-Katan have been killed and she’ll only appear in flashbacks? There’s a ton of ways she might show up. Also, we need to point out that when the Empire was in power, the Emperor removed Bo’s sway over her own people.
Are we against having Skywalker Saga centric characters in The Mandalorian? Not exactly, but we’re not for it either. It’s just way too soon in the series to involve most of them. However, it does make sense from a timeline perspective for at least Ahsoka and Rex, given the former Padawan is believed to be dead by the time The Rise of Skywalker occurs. The clone would likely be gone by that time too, given how fast he and his brethren age. Bo-Katan appear only makes sense given how the Darksaber was bought into play at the end of Season 1. Boba Fett should just remain a mystery.
