What Happened to Moff Gideon?

February 4, 2024

As we all watched the final episode of The Mandalorian, we saw Gideon seemingly die in a fiery explosion. However, death doesn’t always mean the end, especially for Star Wars characters. There are several signs dotted throughout the finale and the wider galaxy that Gideon might not be dead after all.

During Season 3 of The Mandalorian, we learned that Moff Gideon was working on clones of himself imbued with the Force in order to create his ultimate army. These clones would be his soldiers and would also serve as a perfect weapon against his enemies. The Moff’s plans were ultimately foiled when he was captured by the New Republic and his clones were destroyed by Din Djarin and Bo-Katan.

But, Gideon is not a man to give up so easily. He’s a cunning and resourceful Imperial officer who is not afraid to play dirty. He would not have gone after Grogu if he didn’t think he had a chance at winning the Darksaber back from Bo-Katan. Even though he was not physically imposing or a force user, he was able to outwit his enemy and get the edge on them.

Plus, the Beskar armor is one of the toughest armors in the entire galaxy. If anything, it could have prevented Gideon from dying in that fireball. With the advances in medicine and prosthetics, it is not out of the realm of possibility that he could make a comeback after all.
