The Armorer has been one of The Mandalorian's main attractions since the first season. Serving as one of Din Djarin's trusted allies, the character, played by Emily Swallow has been guiding the titular bounty hunter as he finds his true purpose in the galaxy. However, the latest season of the hit Star Wars spinoff series has viewers speculating that she may be up to no good.
For weeks now, fans have noticed the sudden change in The Armorer's demeanor and how shifty she's starting to become. Her true motives are also questioned, especially after this week's episode where she anointed Bo-Katan Kryze as the one who will bring Mand'alor back to its former glory despite Din Djarin being a no-brainer contender for the throne because he wields the Darksaber.
Many feel that The Armorer is purposely creating dissension between Din and Bo-Katan, which might surprise casual viewers of the show. Now, why would she do that? It is believed that the person behind The Armorer's Mandalorian helmet is actually Clone Wars villain Rook Kast.
The villain, who made her Star Wars debut in Star Wars: Darth Maul—Son of Dathomir is a female Mandalorian warrior who led the Shadow Collective's super commandos during the Clone Wars. Kast also has close ties to The Phantom Menace villain and Crimson Dawn leader.
In fact, there's a persistent theory suggesting that The Armorer is in fact Rook and the spiked helmet she currently uses is a tribute to the fallen Sith Lord.
