In the final sequence of the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, there is a surprise rescue by

Luke Skywalker, after receiving Grogu's call via Tython's "seeing stone" in episode 2.06.

The character takes out all of the threatening Dark Troopers and then makes their way to the bridge of Moff Gideon's light cruiser where many of The Mandalorian characters remain!

They proceed to let Grogu say goodbye to Din Djarin, before presumably taking Grogu off to continue his training, which I understand is his primary purpose for coming.

However, Moff Gideon should be seen as a big threat, considering he is still operating under the guise of the former Empire, as fans know this is apart of Darth Sidious's plan to create The New Order and the Sith Empire.

Is there any reason why THIS character wasn't concerned or even asked about the situation with Moff Gideon? Did they know Cara Dune would take him to the New Republic and/or believed they (Din, Cara, Bo-Katan, Fennic, and Koska) could deal with it on their own?

I also understand that the out of universe answer would be, they didn't want to ruin the bittersweet moment, but I find it suspicious how silent and disinterested THIS character was about everything else going on there.

  • Just to note: Luke Skywalker *should be going around the galaxy and studying the history of Jedi at this time, and as extension of my Q, I would like to point out that the Dark Saber, should of also been a point of interest, unless he already knew the history of Tera Vizla/House Vizla. – Darth Locke Dec 29 '20 at 18:27

    He had his mind only on where he was and what he was doing. – Mazura Jan 8 at 1:39
  • @Mazura Ha! Well, that is his big problem as force user! :D – Darth Locke Jan 9 at 14:39

I guess because THIS character is not part of the New Republic, but only a Jedi. His goal is to reestablish the Jedi Order, so he is only interested in Grogu.

Another reason might be, that he saw everything is under control, so he did not care because of the above-mentioned.

    Hello and welcome to Movie TV Stack Exchange. The Mandalorian takes place @ 5 years after The Battle of Endor. Luke Skywalker had previously been on joint missions with New Republic (Shattered Empire mini series comic he worked with Poe Dameron's parents) to save Force Trees taken from Courascant temple. As for other source materials (Bloodline, Aftermath, The Legend of Luke Sky), and stated in my Q, this is a time when Luke is gathering information on the Jedi's past. He is about 5-10 years away from establishing a new school/Jedi order as Ben Solo is currently 5 yrs old. – Darth Locke Jan 3 at 15:12
  • @DarthLocke Are any of the comics, literature that you mentioned even canon? – stackoverblown Jan 8 at 15:20
  • @stackoverblown Yes! All of them! Wouldn't of said otherwise! (will provide link). There are some minor discrepancies, such as Cobb Vanth's flashback is missing one major element from 'Aftermath', but that may be something that gets squared away in TBoBF. The Ahsoka novel also doesn't quite fit in anymore after CW S7, but everything else is pretty tight. starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Timeline_of_canon_books – Darth Locke Jan 9 at 14:43
