Warning: If you haven't seen Chapter 21 of The Mandalorian, this article contains MAJOR SPOILERS so read at your own risk!

Moff Gideon has always been positioned as the MandoVerse's biggest threat and while the second season of The Mandalorian seemingly foiled his diabolical plans, it appears that the notorious Imperial ally is still looming somewhere in the galaxy waiting for his opportune time to seek revenge.

The Mandalorian's Chapter 21, titled "The Pirate" reveals the surprising fate of Gideon and it's something we all didn't see coming. During the episode's closing moments, Captain Teva discovers a derelict Lambda shuttle floating through space. As it turns out, it's the same prison ship that was supposed to transport Gideon to Coruscant where he was set to face trial.

The New Republic is well aware of Gideon's escape and has been attempting to cover the whole thing up, presumably to avoid causing fear in the galaxy. What's even more surprising is what Teva uncovers in the destroyed ship — a shard of Beskar alloy. This leads Captain Reed to the conclusion that Mandalorians had a hand in Gideon's shocking escape.

The mystery was left unanswered but fans are already suspecting who's behind it. Shockingly enough, many are convinced that The Armorer actually helped Gideon and while there's no actual evidence pointing to her connection with the cunning villain, the character's demeanor since the season began has been quite suspicious.

The idea makes sense, especially if you take into consideration all those rumors of Moff Gideon sporting his own Mandalorian-like armor in the series. I mean, who else other than The Armorer has the ability to forge beskar armors?

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