Spoilers for The Mandalorian: Seasons I and II, and a bit on the Book of Boba Fett.

The Mandalorian returns for a third season, containing eight episodes in total. This season follows the second season of the Mandalorian and after the fifth, sixth, and seventh episodes of the Book of Boba Fett.

After the Mandalorian, Din Djarin takes the child known as Grogu across the galaxy in search of a Jedi to train the child as part of his mission. Once Din succeeded, he had to part ways with the child who became part of his family. However, before he was able to complete his mission, Grogu was taken by a remnant of Imperials, led by Gideon. To retrieve Grogu, Din was left with no choice but to break his code, removing his helmet in front of others in order to find the coordinates of where Grogu was being held.

In return, Din, unfortunately, showed his face to an Imperial officer, who stopped him before he could leave.

Din managed to rescue Grogu, facing Gideon, and taking the Darksaber from him, a weapon that belongs to his people, the Mandalorians. Thus, Din finishes his mission, giving Grogu up to the Jedi, who was none other than Luke Skywalker. But before they leave, Din takes off his helmet, showing his face to Grogu for the first time. 

Nonetheless, by removing his helmet, Din Djarin is no longer a Mandalorian, according to his Code and people. Around the same time, Din tries to visit Grogu but is denied as Grogu cannot have any attachments due to his path of being a Jedi. In the end, Grogu must choose between becoming a Jedi or returning to his adopted father, Din.

Grogu decides to return to Din.

After helping Boba Fett and Fennec Shand on Tatooine, they both embark on a quest to redeem Din Djarin, to officially make him a Mandalorian again. 

The Mandalorian is halfway done, yet there are still many questions left to be answered. So far the show has been filled with humour (especially involving Grogu, everyone’s favourite child), action, unexpected scenes and events that have occurred, both old and new, and characters that are also new and recurring from the past seasons.

No doubt we will receive more delightful surprises before this season comes to an end.

The show has been unlike the past two seasons and each episode is unexpected, distinct from the last episode, and yet fascinating. It is unlike the past seasons. This season is one all fans can enjoy, whether you are a new fan, barely diving into the world of Star Wars or a returning fan, all will enjoy this season. Watch season three on Disney+ with episodes one through four now available for streaming. This is the way.
