In the clip, we can see that Din’s one-time adversary turned ally, Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), has moved up in the world. He’s gotten a wardrobe upgrade as magistrate of Nevarro. The former leader of the Bounty Hunters’ Guild — who gave Din the original bounty on Grogu — can now give out parcels of land. He’s surprised to see that the clan of two is still together and tries to make our hero into landed gentry. Din explains that it’s complicated and that, after removing his helmet, he has to return to Mandalore to lose his apostate status. Karga thinks that’s a great reason to stay on the planet with him.
Yeah, this gives us some info about where the characters are now, and that’s all well and good, but you probably didn’t hear any of that anyway. You were too busy reviving yourself after the sight of Grogu spinning around in the giant chair killed you. Papa Mando reaching out to stop the spinning like an actual dad may have reminded you that other things were happening, but you were distracted all over again, watching Grogu use the Force for the best reason; to get candy. You are not alone. I had to watch the clip several times before I could take in anything other than his cute widdle-bitty facey-wacey. Ahem.
“The Mandalorian” season 3 will premiere on March 1, 2023, on Disney+.
