The Rise of Skywalker has been widely — and rightly — criticized for its thrown-together feel. Suddenly, Palpatine was back and the Jedi rulebook was quite literally thrown out. However, not every aspect of the story was completely unfounded. A new theory uses what we know about Season 2 of The Mandalorian to establish a path to explain the most curious addition.
Reddit user Hellouglycow speculates wildly on the plot of The Mandalorian Season 2, suggesting Mando himself will wield one of Ahsoka’s white lightsabers and face off against Moff Gideon. However, the most interesting part of the theory concerns The Child, otherwise known as Baby Yoda.
The theory claims Mando and Baby Yoda will find what they set off looking for, one of the mysterious Jedi “sorcerers.” It’s reasonable to suspect this Jedi will be Ahsoka Tano. Ahsoka will agree to train Baby Yoda, but she won’t be the only one teaching new tricks. Baby Yoda will demonstrate his Force healing powers to Ahsoka, who will explain how she’s never seen such a thing before.
