The Mandalorian has aired its season 2 finale - and it just might be the biggest event in Star Wars in years. The Mandalorian set up some huge expectations with season 2's story of Din Djarin and Grogu (Baby Yoda) trying to both track down The Jedi and evade Moff Gideon. In "Chapter 16: The Rescue" things come to a head as Mando has to recruit his own "Star Wars Avengers" squad to storm Gideon's ship and rescue The Child. With characters like Boba Fett and Bo-Katan Kryze finally joining up, to fight freaky Dark Trooper droids and the dreaded Darksaber, it seemed like we had all the Star Wars fan-service we could handle.
MAJOR SPOILERS: Then The Mandalorian season 2 went and brought out Mark Hamill for an epic Luke Skywalker throwback cameo.
Needless to say, Star Wars fans are now losing their minds over The Mandalorian season 2 finale, Luke, and that post-credits reveal of Boba Fett's future!

Best. Star Wars. Ever.
The amount of emotion Luke must feel holding a being so like his late master Yoda. This is Star Wars payoff on a deeper level than we ever could've imagined.prevnext

Who knew a Star Wars puppet could make the whole world feel so deeply? Grogu needs an 2021 Emmy run, after this - so do all involved with The Mandalorian season 2.prevnext

It cannot be stated enough that Pedro Pascal's performance was the centerpiece of The Mandalorian season 2, despite all the fan-service fanfare. Put some respect on his name. This is the way.prevnext

Rise of Boba
Seriously that post credit scene was incredible! Right up there with the little teaser Favreau gave us at the end of the first Iron Man film. Bib Fortuna got so chunky! And Boba and Fennec were such fucking badasses. Can't wait for the Book of Boba Fett now! #TheMandalorian pic.twitter.com/RxjipAU1hI— GroguGuy (@GroguGuy) December 18, 2020
That post-credits scene somehow added even more fire to this crazy ride! Bring on December 2021!prev
