'The Mandalorian' Chapter 12: Will Gina Carano's character Cara Dune meet her end in Season 2?
There are chances that Cara Dune might be the one to make her exit and there are a couple of theories that support this speculation
'The Mandalorian' has not shied away from adapting some serious storylines and killing pivotal characters on the show. With the next episode, Chapter 12, hinting that Mando/Din Djarin will re-unite with Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), there will be that lingering question if one of these two characters might meet their end by the end of the season.
There are chances that Cara Dune might be the one to make her exit and there are a couple of theories that supplement this speculation. For starters, Carano is slated to appear in Chapter 12 and will reprise her role till Episode 16 (The finale) and so does Karga (Weathers). The last season's penultimate and final episode saw the death of Kuiil and IG-11 respectively. Both played key roles in the pilot season and were Mando's early allies.
This leads us to speculate if these two characters or at least one of them would bite the bullet this season. Adding to this is Carano's tease ahead of Season 2. "When we were filming, [executive producers] Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni told me a secret about my character that’s going to put me in tears. I was like, ‘Wow, that’s huge. I can’t believe it!’ They were very selective about giving us information, but I was blown away when I found out this particular news."
Further adding to the theory was her cryptic tweet earlier this year. "I love the heroes in this business. To the cast and crew of #TheMandalorian, you all are rock stars and it’s been a pleasure to work beside you. You all know who you are," she wrote on March 7.

Now that tweet feels like a long time ago, but there's no doubt the show might throw in a death or two this season. Will she meet her end at the hands of Moff Gideon's (Giancarlo Esposito) Dark Saber? Only time will tell. The synopsis according to IMDb for Chapter 12 reads, "The Mandalorian rejoins old allies for a new mission." All but confirmed, fans will just be happy to see Dune and Karga in action with Mando in the upcoming episode.
Do you think Cara Dune might die in Season 2? 'The Mandalorian' Season 2 is available for streaming on Disney+ with new episodes dropping every Friday.
