The presence in the very final seconds of season one of The Mandalorian of the darksaber opens up a galaxy of possibilities and questions. Where did he gets it from? Who did he kill to get it, or did he steal it? Who’s going to come looking for it in season two – indeed, could we be looking at our season 2 Mcguffin? All those questions will start to be answered in October when season two arrives but speaking with ET, Moff Gideon actor Giancarlo Esposito touched on that topic.

Because, is he really that fallen hero?”
