For a long time, it’s widely been assumed that Bo-Katan Kryze would be the one to restore Mandalore once and for all. She’s by far the most determined to get the job done, and held the darksaber in her own hands for a time before it was taken away from her. But another Mandalorian might be able to accomplish even more if he decides to keep it.

The long-standing tension between the Jedi and the people of Mandalore could finally end with Din Djarin claiming the darksaber and all that comes with it, concluding centuries of war and distrust between the two factions.

The one-of-a-kind darksaber was created by the first Mandalorian Jedi many centuries ago, and ever since his death, Mandalorians have found it a major inconvenience to so much as interact with keepers of the peace. It might take another Mandalorian “Jedi” to finally break the cycle.

Of course, this theory mostly only works if Din Djarin is in fact Force-sensitive, which is still an unofficial idea Star Wars fans have been tossing around for a while. But his link to Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) could also make the idea work, making Din the catalyst that unites the likes of Bo-Katan and Grogu, for example.

For the most part, it’s Din’s seemingly supernatural connection to Grogu that has fans holding tight to the theory that he is also Force-sensitive. Not everyone we meet in Star Wars needs to be strong in the Force to build a good story, but we’ve never seen a Mandalorian Jedi on screen before. It would be unique, despite the very tired trope of main characters on the small screen having to carry laser swords.

It might take someone like Din to finally rule with the understanding that the Force does not give one faction power over another, as the Jedi often made themselves to appear to the people of Mandalore and the galaxy as a whole.

One could also argue that, using this same logic, Grogu must be the one to restore Mandalore since he’s already off training with Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi and is technically a member of Din Djarin’s clan. of two so to speak. But that’s a potential story for another future Star Wars theory breakdown.
