This week’s episode of The Mandalorian, “The Believer,” delivered yet another highly enjoyable and emotionally resonant side quest, as Mando and co. tracked down information on the whereabouts of Grogu (The Child Formerly Known as Baby Yoda). However, there was no actual Grogu in the episode, and now that we’re only one week out from the Season 2 finale, the internet is rife with predictions as to how the rescue attempt will play out.
It’s widely believed that a previously unseen Jedi character will make an appearance in the finale. After all, the entire initial plot of the season was Mando’s quest to reunite Grogu with his people, and in “The Tragedy,” we saw Grogu reach out through the Force to other Jedi, hoping to find someone who would be able to train him. It’s pretty likely that at least one Jedi heard the call, and that they will show up to try and help Mando save him.
While there are plenty of theories as to who this Jedi might be, with Luke Skywalker a fan favorite, a new video on the Star Wars Theory channel speculates that Cal Kestis could be the person who helps save the day in next week’s finale.
