The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 5 is available on Disney Plus! If you need an explanation about the ending of episode 5, read on! In the second season of The Mandalorian, Bo Katan Kryse tells Din Djarin to meet Ahsoka Tano on the planet Corvus, in the city of Calodan. After spending the last few episodes searching for the Jedi to bring them the little green creature we know as the Child.
Mando finally comes face to face with the former Jedi who is Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan. Ahsoka Tano is one of the fan-favorite characters from the Star Wars animated series “The Clone Wars” and “Rebels,” directed by Rosario Dawson.
Episode 5 of season 2 of The Mandalorian is titled “The Jedi” and begins with Ahsoka Tano kicking the butt of enemies, wielding his double lightsabers in spectacular and effortless fashion. He appears to be in conflict with the cruel magistrate of Calodan who instructs Mando to kill Ahsoka upon his arrival in town. The Magistrate, an Imperial officer named Morgan Elsbeth, offers Mando a staff made of pure beskar in exchange for killing Ahsoka Tano. In the forest outside the city walls, Mando encounters the impressive and fierce Ahsoka Tano. And he doesn’t stop attacking him until he tells him Bo Katan sent him.
Ahsoka Tano is able to communicate with Baby Yoda by sharing her thoughts through the Force. He then relays the information to Din Djarin, and finally answers very important questions about the boy’s origins. We found out that his name is Grogu and that he grew up in the Jedi temple on Coruscant. His training was left incomplete when Protocol 66 on clones was employed by Palpatine, who initiated the Great Jedi Purge. Grogu was hidden by an unknown entity. And it survived a direct assault on the Jedi Temple by the newly minted Darth Vader. Grogu spent some 25 years alone and lost until Mando found him, a period during which he repressed his powers for fear of being discovered. To know everything about Grogu, read this.
Ahsoka Tano is testing the baby’s power to manipulate the Force. But seeing his deep emotional connection to Din Djarin, he refuses to train him, explaining that for individuals who are strong with the Force. Forming strong emotional ties can be detrimental and makes you vulnerable to the dark side. This is a direct reference to the fate of Anakin Skywalker, who gave in to his feelings of fear and rage and became Darth Vader. All because he formed a deep bond with Padme Amidala. However, Mando promises to help her take down the Magistrate of Calodan if he agrees to train Grogu Jedi style.
Explanation Of The End Of Episode 5 Of Season 2 Of The Mandalorian
At the end of episode 5 of The Mandalorian season two, Ahsoka Tano and Din Djarin team up to attack the Magistrate’s forces. And, after an impressive one-on-one fight with Elsbeth, Tano manages to defeat her. Command, meanwhile, frees the captive villagers. Once the town is freed from the tyranny of Magistrate Elsbeth, Mando prepares the boy for a heartfelt farewell. But once again, Tano tells him that it is better not to separate the boy from himself, because Grogu regards Din Djarin as his father.
He then asks him to take Grogu to the ancient ruins of a Jedi temple on the planet Tython and place him on the “stone of vision.” Once there, Grogu can choose to join other Jedi through the Force and one of them will come to pick him up and train him. Tano says goodbye to Mando and the boy as they fly off in the Navaja.
This sets the stage for the entry of other Jedi like Ezra Bridger from “Rebels” perhaps, or perhaps Luke Skywalker himself, although Ahsoka Tano says there aren’t many left. Ultimately it is up to Grogu to decide if he wants to be trained as a Jedi or if he wants to live his life as an adventurer with Mando.
Morgan Elsbeth’s Master
Once again, this episode of The Mandalorian ties the series to the greater Star Wars universe by dropping the name of one of the most beloved villains in Star Wars lore. After defeating Elsbeth in battle, Tano asks him where his master is. She then names him too, much to the delight of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s admirers. To give you a bit of information, Thrawn is one of the main antagonists of the Star Wars franchise.
It first appeared in 1991 in Timothy Zahn’s novel “Heir to the Empire.” Grand Admiral Thrawn is an Imperial military commander who takes control of the remaining forces of the Galactic Empire five years after the destruction of the Second Death Star and the death of Darth Vader. This is exactly the period during which the Mandalorian story also takes place, five years after the events of the movie “Return
