The Second Season of ‘The Mandalorian’ and How it Sparked a Debate Lasting for Years Once Again

Well, it wouldn’t be a Star Wars movie if it didn’t have conversations of the Death Star, would it?

That’s precisely what the season 2 finale of Disney+’s The Mandalorian gave its fans. However, this does open up yet another conversation for one of Star Wars’ most steaming debates. Because of that, there will be tons of spoilers ahead, so scroll with safety.

In episode 8 of the second season, there’s a bit of a commotion between our heroes and some Imperial pilots who just can’t keep their mouths shut about the Death Star––especially in front of Cara Dune and her home planet, Alderaan. If you know your history, you know what happened.

Though The Mandalorian does have his own three-dimensional plot, fans can’t help but notice how Star Wars has, once again, resurrected a classic debate pulling fans way back to Death Star 1.

The debate revolves around whether or not the Rebel Alliance blew up the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi knowing that they’d be killing innocent people especially those who were working on finishing it up?

Though the Disney+ series doesn’t really help fans answer questions, fans and audiences alike can confirm that the Imperial pilot was too much of a jerk who wasn’t afraid to get blood on his hands. However, if there’s anything Mando has revealed, it’s the heads working inside the Empire––and second-by-second, we wonder:

Did Luke Skywalker and the rest of the Rebel Alliance just mass murdered TWICE in the trilogy?

Something to wrap your heads around to while you’re laying in bed, probably.
