“The Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal, in an interview with Indie Wire , raised the topic of the emotional ending of the second season, when the bounty hunter says goodbye to Grogu, who is waiting for Jedi training with Luke Skywalker.
Before Grogu leaves, Mando removes his helmet and allows Grogu to touch his face for the first time since they traveled together. In a conversation with reporters, Pedro says:
At that moment, I knew what this line between character and toddler would mean for everyone. We’ve been following this story for two seasons, and a bond has formed between them. He [Mando] tries not to soften, but he can’t do anything. This logic of the story underscored something else about this moment – which means touching the face.
Pascal believes that another highlight in the finale was the way Dean took off his helmet surrounded by other people. In general, throughout the season, adherence to Mandalore’s creed was tested, which was discussed in the seventh episode, when Mayfield talks about the crime through the lines.
Although he [Mando] says that this is the path, this does not mean there is only one path. We don’t know what will eventually become of him. But he took off his helmet in a room full of people.
The third season of “The Mandalorian” is expected in 2022. And this year kicks off the first season of Boba Fett’s Book.
