'The Mandalorian' Season 3 Episode 2: Din's redemption in Mandalore leads to a mythical danger
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The new episode of 'The Mandalorian' was nothing short of a roller coaster ride. It was endearing as well as filled with many nail-biting moments which would surely make your heart skip a beat. As we know the path to redemption isn't always easy and there will be many difficulties on the way. However, the new episode of 'The Mandalorian' introduces a new perspective that showcases a bigger danger that might be waiting for you even after redemption. On the other hand, in the real world, 'The Mandalorian' made a huge change for its third season and maybe you didn’t even recognize it. It happens during the credits where all the familiar, famous names are given distinguished placement over the nifty cool concept art. After the four big names, Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Emily Swallow, and Carl Weathers, two names: Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder pop up that aren’t as familiar as the rest. They’re two of the stunt performers who double as the Mandalorian on the show.

'The Mandalorian' Season 3 Episode 2: Bo-Katan to the rescue of Din and Grogu in the mines of Mandalore
'To have tamed the mythical beast'
In the very first episode of Season 3, the Armorer tells him there’s one way to atone for his sins: he must bathe in the living waters of Mandalore. Baptism, or something equivalent to it, is important in Mandalorian culture. While catching up, the Armorer also asks Mando where he got the Darksaber, and he tells her how he defeated Moff Gideon. This reminds The Armorer of a prophecy, and she says, “The songs of eons past foretold of the Mythosaur rising up to herald a new age of Mandalore. Sadly, it only exists in legends.” However, in the new episode, we learn how the mines are 1000s of years from Bo-Katan as she gave Mando a full tour of the living waters before he went in the water, saying: "These mines date back to the age of the first Mandalore. According to the ancient folklore Mandalore, the great once said- 'to have tamed the mythical beast.' It is from these legends that the skull signet was adopted and became a symbol of our planet."
Big fight between Mandalorians and Mythosaur
After Bo Katan gave Mando the full tour, Din walks towards the water while saying, " I swear on my name and the name of the ancestors that I'll walk the way of a Mand'alor and the words of the creed shall be forever forged in my heart," as he takes a dip, he is suddenly pulled down by a giant aquatic creature which we later find out when Bo-Katan rescues him from the deep waters. As the episode ended on a cliffhanger it is still unknown if the sea monster which we assume to be Mythosaur (Although the Mythosaur was believed to be a land-dwelling creature, it looks like some have lived in the “living waters” this entire time) will follow them or will there be a new set of dangers for these Mandalorians?
Season 3 of 'The Mandalorian' continues on Disney+ every Wednesday, for the next two months.
