What does the Mandalorian look like without his helmet? We’re reminded in chapter 15

The Mandalorian is officially on its seventh episode of season 2, and Din Djarin is now on the hunt to rescue Baby Yoda. This week’s installment, titled “The Believer,” saw Mando meeting up with Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and seeing a familiar face from season 1–Migs Mayfeld (Bill Burr).

Dune decides to send her prisoner on Mando’s mission to find get Grogu back, and in a hilarious moment when Mayfeld initially sees Boba Fett, he is reminded of Din Djiarin, who, of course, is right behind Fett. Surprise!

The episode begins teasing pretty heavily that we might see Mando take his helmet off, something we all know by now is a move he absolutely won’t do for nothing. Although he’s met other Mandalorians this season who show their faces with ease, even learning a bit about why he follows those strict rules, he’s still set in his ways right now.

While Din Djarin and Mayfeld are together in this episode, Mayfeld challenges him on his beliefs, and questions why he continues to wear the helmet. Of course, they then discover that pirates are quick on their tail to attack, and their conversation is cut short.

The Mandalorian without his helmet

We do, eventually, see Mando without his helmet in this episode, for longer than I was honestly expecting. Fans will remember that we saw the titular character bare-faced in chapter 8, titled “Redemption,” back season 1. That episode also marked when we got his real name, Din Djarin.

Fast forward to chapter 15, and Mando must take off his helmet once again to use a facial computer scanner after he and Mayfeld get into the Imperial facility. Unfortunately for him, it’s not exactly smooth sailing from there, as he is then questioned by Valin Hess (Richard Brake). Thankfully, however, Mayfeld is there to get them out of it.

In case you forgot, Mando is played by the actor Pedro Pascal. You might recognize him from his role as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones, or Javier Peña in Narcos. Although he’s a pretty well-known actor at this point, seeing his face in The Mandalorian is a pretty big deal for a variety of reasons.

For one, we know how hellbent he is on keeping his helmet on, and on top of that, it appears this season he’s starting to struggle with his religion and beliefs. Also, fans totally thirst over Mando as it is, so seeing his actual handsome face is a big win for many viewers!
