‘The Mandalorian’, a Star Wars spin-off series, premiered on Disney+ in 2019 and has since taken the world by storm.
Moff Gideon’s arrival in the penultimate episode of The Mandalorian Season 1 brought a tense standoff to Nevarro, where he nearly killed the titular hero in the season finale. Gideon’s intelligence, cunning, and ruthlessness were immediately apparent, showcasing the efficiency of a competent Imperial.
As a former member of the ISB, Gideon was responsible for the Night of a Thousand Tears, which resulted in the destruction of Mandalore at the hands of the Empire. His background and experience in the Imperial hierarchy make him a formidable adversary, and his actions in The Mandalorian demonstrate his capacity for strategic thinking and calculated brutality.
The future of Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian is uncertain, but it’s clear that his devotion to the fallen Empire won’t wane despite his recent defeat. While it’s unclear how many loyalists remain in the Imperial Remnant, it’s possible that Gideon could easily regain power by taking command of another ship.
The Mandalorian’s main narrative is tied to Gideon’s role, and the fact that Mandalorians are still in hiding suggests that the Imperial Remnant may be larger than previously revealed. Bo-Katan’s efforts to retake the planet indicate that the Remnant could be based on Mandalore, which would explain why Gideon was in possession of the Darksaber and why he may want to recover it after his release.
The fate of Grogu is still unknown, but it’s likely that Gideon will continue his mission to study the Force-user’s blood. The appearance of Snoke clones on Nevarro suggests that Gideon could be serving under the Emperor on Exegol, despite the plot holes in the Star Wars narrative.
Gideon’s first objective upon his release will be to gather information and assess the current state of the galaxy. If he still has a sizable contingent of loyalists, he’ll return to them and continue operating as Moff. Creating more Dark Troopers will be a top priority for Gideon, as they were a credible threat to everyone.
When the time comes for Din Djarin to retake Mandalore, Gideon will likely stand in his way. The galaxy is poised for chaos, and Gideon will be ready to respond accordingly with the element of surprise on his side.
