The Mandalorian Season 3 Gives Interesting Insight On Bo-Katan's Father

Contains spoilers for "The Mandalorian" Season 3, Episode 2 — "The Mines of Mandalore"

When "The Mandalorian" introduced Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) in Season 2, it solidified that Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are looking to connect the animated and live-action sides of "Star Wars." Sackhoff reprising her role from "The Clone Wars" is just the cherry on top, as "The Mandalorian" cements that Bo-Katan and Din Djarin's (Pedro Pascal) fates are intertwined.

Season 3 picks up Bo-Katan's story as Mando travels to Kalevala, asking her to help him find the Mines of Mandalore so that he may redeem himself to his clan. Understandably, she still has beef with him, revealing that her plans to reclaim Mandalore are dead. Thanks to Din's heroic efforts in Season 2, which won him the Darksaber, Bo-Katan's allies chose to become mercenaries instead of following her, leaving her alone in the Mandalore system.

Season 3 Episode 2, "The Mines of Mandalore," showcases Bo-Katan in all her glory. After refusing to help Din, she comes to his rescue after a lone Grogu arrives on her doorstep, showing audiences how a trained Mandalorian uses the Darksaber. If that wasn't enough, she saves him again after agreeing to show Din to the waters after he took a massive plunge into the depths below.

However, that's not the part of the episode that fans will discuss. While Bo-Katan and Din walk toward the waters, she gives him a glimpse into her past, mentioning her father.

Bo-Katan Kryze's father was a great man

Throughout Bo-Katan's time in "Star Wars," fans have gotten little information regarding her father. That changed with the most recent episode of "The Mandalorian."

As Bo-Katan escorts Din to the waters, he asks her if she's been there before. She informs him that, as a member of the royal family, she took the creed as a child, playing her part in the traditions as her father watched proudly. After Din states he would have liked to meet her father, Bo-Katan says, "He was a great man. He died defending Mandalore," to which Din replies with his ever-so stoic, "This is the way."

Putting two and two together, long-time fans of the franchise will understand that Bo-Katan's father's death led to her sister, Satine, taking the throne of Mandalore. Both Satine (Anna Graves) and Bo-Katan featured heavily in "The Clone Wars," as the sisters disagreed on how Mandalore should move forward after their Civil War. Satine believed a pacifist route was necessary, while Bo-Katan wanted Mandalore to return to their militarized ways. She eventually joins the Death Watch, a group of Mandalorians that share her beliefs, led by Pre Vizsla, making for a fun little connection as Jon Favreau voiced the group's leader.

It's unclear whether or not "The Mandalorian" will continue to dive into Bo-Katan's past, but with Favreau leading the way, it's safe to say that nothing's off the table.
