When Mando and The Child head again to Nevarro, it’s not simply to see Cara Dune and Greef Karga once more, but additionally to get the Razar Crest mounted. He wants to go to Corvus to see Ahsoka Tano in regards to the Jedi, to whom he must convey The Child. 

While there, although, the 2 outdated mates ask Din Djarin for his assist. While the three of them efficiently ran out the Imperial Stormtroopers and sympathizers from their city final season, there’s an Empire base nonetheless there. When they go to deal with it, the non-menacing ahead working base seems to be a army lab. One operating an experiment that entails massive tanks with bizarre floating specimens. Beings that look very very similar to Snoke from the sequel trilogies. 

As followers now know, Snoke isn’t the omnipotent historic Sith Lord that he was deemed to be in The Force Awakens. In Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, it was defined that Snoke was a Strand-Cast or a clone, created by Palpatine to do his bidding. When, in actual fact, Darth Sidious was pulling the strings the entire whole time. 

Fans found that the music taking part in behind this scene is Snoke’s theme

So, with viewers understanding that Snoke was created by the Empire, seeing a creature that appears like him — with, what appears to be like like, a dent in his head and a physique just like Snoke’s — in a lab that presumably created The Child, it’s beginning to click on into place. Last season, Dr. Pershing seemingly labored for the Kaminoans based mostly on his uniform, who’re grasp cloners. And Din Djarin and Kuiil already had a dialog about The Child being a product of such experimentation. With all that in thoughts, these tanks holding early variations of Snoke — or Snoke himself — is very possible. 

But, if you really want it to hit house, followers on-line have seen that the music within the scene has Snoke’s theme. Reddit person u/acautelado posted a side-by-side comparability video of Snoke’s theme tune with the scene and it undoubtedly appears like the identical tune performs in each. Star Wars Facts & Leaks, @SWTweets, on Twitter additionally posted the video, the place it has nearly 170,000 views. 

On Reddit, customers wrote that the explanation Palpatine is perhaps utilizing Nevarro for this experimentation and never Exegol as seen in The Rise of Skywalker is that he had operations unfold out. 

“Palpatine is notorious for his far-reaching and well-distributed secret bases working on all kinds of Sith science and Jedi research stuff,” one person wrote. “It’s in Aftermath and plenty of different canon tales. It is sensible Snoke clones could be examined at a number of places.”

What does this imply for The Child and Mando? And Palpatine and Snoke?

As for what this implies for The Mandalorian, particularly, everybody’s beloved Baby Yoda? Long story quick: we clearly don’t know but. Palpatine clearly doesn’t present up, bodily, till The Rise of Skywalker. But he’s working very onerous behind the scenes. In canon, he’s already in a vessel someplace, however nowhere close to full-strength, and received’t be shut for many years. But as seen in Star Wars Rebels, he does strive different issues just like the World Between Worlds. 

And now that Moff Gideon is aware of the place Din Djarin is and that he has The Child, he’s going to attempt to get Baby Yoda again. Remember, on this episode viewers additionally discovered that Dr. Pershing wants The Child’s reside midi-chlorian cells to present to the specimens within the tanks to be able to make them work. Most seemingly to allow them to have Force talents too. Which, in the long term, Snoke does. 

Again, there are a few a long time between now and when audiences first met Snoke. And we all know he does have Force talents, so someplace alongside the road, he will get these cells they want. Are they The Child’s? Is The Child OK? Only time will inform. However, they do want Baby Yoda alive to ensure that these cells to be viable, in order that is perhaps reassuring, relying on the way you take a look at it?

Plus, customers within the Reddit thread additionally identified that Snoke needed to come from another person, since The Child appears to be like like Yoda and Palpatine’s clone seemed like him. That is, once more, if The Child is even a clone. So, who’s Snoke, actually? Again, there’s nonetheless a lot to be taught from The Mandalorian
