The Mandalorian season 3 will see Moff Gideon return even after his capture. He will play a major role in the next season. Previously, Moff Gideon appeared at the end of the Season 1. This made the fans speculate that he will have a major role in season 2. And he certainly did! He kept continuing his search for Baby Yoda and Bo-Katan pursuing Darksaber.
The end of season 2 saw Din Darjin defeating Gideon and eventually capturing him. Din became the rightful owner of the Darksaber. With this drastic development in Gideon’s life, you might think that he will not appear in season 3. However, it is already confirmed that he will appear in Season 3 and play a major role as indicated by Giancarlo Esposito.
Esposito said that his character can be central to what happens in season 3. He particularly pointed out that his character is such who can pose a lot of pressure on other characters. His presence in season 3 can bring chaotic energy among Bo-Katan and Din Darjin. Gideon can manipulate Bo-Katan and instigate her to take revenge from Din Darjin.
This will be highly convenient for Gideon to fulfill his motives as Darjin has already defeated him once. Gideon’s character can be compared to Hannibal Lector in The Silence of the Lambs. He tormented people from behind the bars. Chances are Gideon will have similar access to influence people on the outside.
Moroever, the season 3 can explore Gideon’s backstory and plans. He plans to take Grogu. Moreover, his association with cloning experiments might be a possibility. This has already given rise to different theories such as his association with Palpatine’s contingency plan. The Mandalorian Season 3 can confirm the role of Gideon in such events.
The Mandalorian Season 3 can also tell Gideon’s story through flashbacks. If the season focuses on Gideon causing a rift between Bo-Katan and Darjin, it will interesting to see how he got the Darksaber in the first place. Viewers can gear up for The Mandalorian Season 3 and watch how Gideon creates chaos!
