In the last episode we saw an episode all about the Mandalorian, and oddly enough I found it to be the best episode, however this is the Boba Fett show, so I am looking forward to it picking back up with Boba. Now, Din tells Fennec he’ll help Boba out once he visits Grogu, and this means that we’re going to see Luke and Grogu together.
Now my prediction is that Grogu is training with Luke somewhere, it could be on the forest moon of Endor, which would be cool to see again, especially if Vader’s helmet was presevered somewhere by Luke, as it would help us understand how Kylo Ren got it. Anyways, there are two possibilities for how I think we’ll see Luke and Grogu again. Either Din goes to them somewhere where they’re training, and perhaps even with more force sensitive children, or, Luke comes to Din aboard the millennium falcon with Han and Leia. I think if that happens, the world would be filled with tears and drought wouldn’t be a thing anymore. That’s the one thing I feel was really missing in the sequel trilogy, the wasted opportunity of getting Luke han and Leia back together one last time and now sadly it’ll never happen again with Carrie’s untimely passing, however with technology we know it could still happen for the story. Carrie’s daughter played her at the end of Rogue One and it worked pretty well for the scene. Perfectly connecting Vader in rogue one into a new hope.
Either option would be something I’d like to see. With the showing of a BD droid, could this mean we’ll see other Jedi knights or masters with Luke? Perhaps helping him train his new class of students? Could Cal be helping Luke on his journey to find as many force sensitives in the galaxy as possible? It would make sense continuity wise as Cal was on a mission to find these beings at the end of Jedi: Fallen Order, so I think it could make sense if we saw him or heard about him from Luke. Leia could be one of the students as well, and I feel like Grogu will take well to Leia. She always was good with little creatures, like Wicket.
Now, I think while Mandalorian sees little baby Yoda, he’ll show Luke the dark saber and a training session will be had. Luke will show him how to use the sober, and we could get a full on Jedi training moment like in the prequels and originals. Luke could tell Mando about who trained him in lightsaber combat, if you didn’t know, Yoda trained him, there are deleted scenes on YouTube never before seen and cut from the empire strikes back where Yoda is on Luke’s back on Dagobah and he’s instructing him how to wield his father, Anakin’s, lightsaber.
I believe while Mando learns how to use the dark sober from Luke, we’ll also get a sense of Luke’s journey with Grogu as we head into the mandalorian season 3, as we know for sure that Mando is going to Mandalore to visit the live springs beneath the mines which are all but destroyed now. Other than that, we don’t know much else about season 3 or where it’ll end up, so I think seeing Luke will also give us insight on his journey and how that could connect to Mando’s at some point in the next season.
As for Cal Kestis, he’d be close to 40 now, and I think he would be perfect to help Luke find remaining Jedi in the galaxy.
As for Ahsoka, well, I don’t think Luke has met her yet, and if he has, I hope we get to see their first interaction in a flashback or something, as I’m sure their campfire stories about Anakin would be emotional to witness, especially Luke telling Ahsoka how Anakin was redeemed, and died the hero like he always was as she knew him before Order 66.
I don’t see Luke going back with Mando to help him on Boba’s quest.
I don’t think Luke will be in the rest of the show. Rather, a cameo perhaps before the last episode. Episode 6 of the original trilogy and episode 6 of the book of Boba Fett I think could be the perfect time for Luke to appear, and this episode is directed by Dave Filoni, and there’s no one better than Dave to give us a Luke cameo.
