The Mandalorian Season 3 delivered yet another mind-blowing episode and there's definitely a lot to unpack in the latest chapter.

Season 3 pretty much started with Din Djarin's quest to redeem himself after breaking the Mandalorian creed on more than one occasion. In Episode 2, Mando was accepted back into the creed and officially stripped of his "Apostate" status after taking a plunge into the Living Waters.

Little does he know though that the Mythosaur was actually awakened from his long sleep after he took a dive into the Living Waters and Bo-Katan saw the mythical monster with her own eyes. Fast forward to Episode 4, she told the Armorer about her encounter with the Mythosaur and according to the legend, it signals the coming of a new age for Mandalore.

During the closing moments of the latest episode, the Armorer basically anointed Bo-Katan as the one who will bring Mandalore back to its former glory, and much to the shock of fans, she was allowed to show her face simply because she "walks both worlds".

The stunning revelation left many confused and understandably so. You see, the Armorer's decision to allow Bo-Katan to go helmetless renders the creed, not to mention Din Djarin's road to redemption pointless.

Surprisingly enough, Mando didn't seem to mind the idea of Bo-Katan being allowed to remove her helmet, despite what he had to go through just to be accepted back to the Armorer's covert. It still begs the question: how will Bo-Katan ascend to the throne without the Darksaber?

The latest episode of The Mandalorian Season 3 is now streaming on Disney+.
