1. Will Din Djarin join Bo-Katan in her quest to reclaim Mandalore?

One of the unresolved plot threads stemming from the season 2 finale is the rightful owner of the Darksaber and the throne to Mandalore.

From both the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels cartoon series’, where the Darksaber was previously featured, the saber was synonymous with the ruler of Mandalore, and whoever wields it can lay claim to the planet’s throne.

The issue that the show ran into is that Din Djarin was the one who disarmed Moff Gideon and therefore, is now the Darksaber’s rightful owner. He offered it to Bo-Katan and yielded himself to her. However, she refused to claim it from him — as in her eyes, it would be illegitimate.

With his quest to reunite Grogu with a Jedi to train him completed, with his ship, the Razor Crest, destroyed and his former Covert of Mandalorians on Nevarro disbanded, Din Djarin now lacks direction in the galaxy far, far away.

He could return to Nevarro with Cara Dune, either helping her as a Marshall of the New Republic or go back to a life of bounty hunting. However, as the owner of the Darksaber, Din could decide to help Bo retake what would be both of their ancestral homeworlds.

It may not have been his interest initially, and he seemed not to care for the Darksaber once receiving it, but after his adventures with Grogu, Din Djarin could desire a higher calling in the galaxy than life as a bounty hunter and could agree to help liberate Mandalore from the Empire’s influence, which in my opinion, makes for a much more interesting story.
