The Mandalorian 3: Is Din Djarin worthy of the Darksaber?

The Mandalorian 3: Is Din Djarin worthy of the Darksaber?

The Mandalorian 3

It is no longer a mystery that the new season of the adventures of Din Djarin shifts viewers' attention towards Mandalorian culture, a trait that has so far been undervalued within the horizontal plot of the series. While introducing Mandalorian elements to the franchise as early as The Clone Wars, the Mando-starring series has become the central turning point in Star Wars continuity to do full credit to this fan-favorite culture. At the center of this enhancement is placed not only the role of Din Djarin, but an essential trait of Mandalorian society, namely the Darksaber. Long present in the history of the Mandalorian played by Pedro Pascal, it seems that we will find out in The Mandalorian 3 if Din Djarin is worthy of the Darksaber .

At the end of the previous season of The Mandalorian , Din Djarin managed to get hold of the Darksaber after a duel with Moff Gideon, who had got hold of it in an as yet unspecified way. Despite Mando's reticence to possess the Darksaber, and Bo-Katan Kryze's obvious willingness to wield the weapon that would make it possible for her to reunite the Mandalorian clans, this legendary weapon has a history that makes it more than just a symbol or an instrument of power. Given the relevance of this weapon to Mandalorians, this crossroads of characters obsessed with the legendary sword makes it central to The Mandalorian 3 whether Din Djarin is worthy of the Darksaber.

In The Mandalorian 3 Din Is Djarin worthy of the Darksaber? The future of Mandalore is linked to this question

The Darksaber is the key to Mandalore's destiny Din Djarin is not worthy of the Darksaber in The Mandalorian 3 Mandalore needs his Mand'alor

The Darksaber is the key to destiny of Mandalore

A legitimate question, considering that only the Mand'alor, the one who is recognized as the leader of all the Mandalorian clans, is worthy of wielding the Darksaber. Ever since its introduction in The Clone Wars, this lightsaber created by the sole Mandalorian Jedi, Tarre Vizsla, has been endowed with a mythological aura, making it central to the power struggle for control of Mandalore. Both in The Clone Wars and in Star Wars Rebels, its importance was central, showing how the heirs of the Vizlsa clan, during the final years of the Republic, tried to use the Darksaber to subvert the order on Mandalore.

Through various events, the weapon had come into the hands of Bo-Katan Kryze, albeit in a traditionally inappropriate way: donated by Sabine Wren, who had won it in a duel, rather than earned through a show of strength, thus proving to be the worthy Send alor. In The Mandalorian we discover that the woman has subsequently lost the weapon, leading him to seek Moff Gideon to recover it, but when Din Djarin fortuitously retrieves the Darksaber his plans are apparently destroyed, to the point that in the new season of The Mandalorian we see Bo -Katan in exile in her fortress, devoid of a purpose and haunted by the fear that her failure has condemned the Mandalorian clans to remain isolated and devoid of a sense of common belonging.

The only hope, according to the tradition, it could just be the Mandalorian least interested in power: Din Djarin .

Din Djarin is not worthy of the Darksaber in The Mandalorian 3

Since the Mando came into possession of the Darksaber, we have seen him use the legendary weapon a few times, but on all these occasions it is possible to notice how Din Djarin wields the weapon in an awkward way. While emerging victorious from clashes in which he uses the Mandalorian lightsaber, the Mandalorian shows that he suffers from incredible weight in moving the weapon, despite having proven to be a lethal fighter not only with blasters but also with white weapons, such as the beskar spear used in the fight with Moff Gideon.

Behind this apparent difficulty of Djarin, there may be a more emotional reason. The Mando belongs to the Death Watch, the clan that has in the past been identified as primarily responsible for the fall of Mandalore, as told in the Star Wars animated series. This realization, coupled with Din's need to breathe out the betrayal of the Creed following the decision to show his face, may be why Din Djarin fails to wield the Darksaber properly. Although it is a lightsaber, the Darksaber is not like other similar ones, it does not only require training and training to be used, but its nature seems to draw on the very soul of whoever wields it. In the past we have seen how other characters have wielded it, from Darth Maul to Palpatine, revealing how this weapon almost seems to impose itself on the owner, in what appears to be a struggle of wills.

A discount that Din Djarin apparently does not is still able to sustain, as also seen in the second episode of The Mandalorian 3, The Mines of Mandalore. However, in this very episode a character linked to the Mando seems to be at ease using the Darksaber: Bo-Katan Kryze.

Mandalore needs his Mand'alor

Se Din pare being doubtful about his right to wield the Darksaber, Bo-Katan, despite his disappointment in having failed the hunt for Moff Gideon, seems not to have the same misgivings. As he battles the depths of Mandalore using the Darksaber, Bo-Katan proves absolutely capable of wielding the weapon with extraordinary skill, like a true Mandalorian. A detail that does not fail to ask if this proves that at the moment Bo-Katan is the only Mandalorian able to wield the Darksaber and claim the role of Mand'alor .

(L-R): Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu in Lucasfilm's THE MANDALORIAN, season three, exclusively on Disney+. ..2022 Lucasfilm Ltd. & TM. All Rights Reserved. Although Bo-Katan aspires to this role, however, he cannot claim this weapon without facing Din in a duel and thus earning the right to call himself Mand'alor. A nodal point of the plot of The Mandalorian 3 , thus putting into question the future of Din Djarin, who as a Mandalorian in search of redemption for having betrayed the Creed could become the new Mand'alor, if he were to find a renewed spirit. Such a future role for Din Djarin, however, could be unmanageable within a series in which the character's characterization was essentially based on the bond between Mando and Grogu, pushing them to a wandering life among the stars and which would reconcile with the role of lord of Mandalore. A task that instead seems more suited to an adamantine will like that of Bo-Katan, thus leaving fans waiting to find out who will finally be the new Mand'alor.
