He has returned from the pit by some means and is now determined to fix things up. He is now aiming at taking care of some unfinished business. Moreover, by the end of the show, his popularity and stature has gained him a series of his own. The show will be called The Book of Boba Fett.

The show does not hold back from showing gruesome fights between these Mandalorian and the Galactic Empire.
Bo-Katan is after Moff Gideon, the imperial leader, because he possesses the Darksaber. In the later episodes, Din Djarin defeats Moff and acquires the weapon. This turns out to be a major problem. In order for Bo to become the leader of the planet Mandalore, she must win the weapon from the current owner. The win should be in combat or the owner should submit the saber.

One of the most surprising moments of The Mandalorian Season 2 was when Ahsoka Tano comes up to Din Djarin and tells him that the Baby Yoda is named Grogu. The Child, or as the fans have named him, Baby Yoda, was actually named Grogu. The Jedi was able to connect with this 50-year-old baby through the Force. She learns a lot about Grogu through this; even more than Mando could ever learn.
As Grogu learns about Ahsoka Tano and the Force, he reaches out to a Jedi Master by using the Seeing Stone on Tython. This lead to Grogu getting captured again. Though, it was quite a heart-breaking moment. But watching Grugo getting stronger using the Force was a incredible moment.
