A synopsis for Chapter 11 of The Mandalorian has teased that Din Djarin will be joined by “unexpected allies”, leaving viewers guessing who they might be.
The Mandalorian returned for Season 2 on Disney+ in October this year, after the show’s first season proved to be a hit for streaming service. We’re only two episodes in, but fans are already heavily speculating what will happen before the season comes to an end in December.
Over the last few months, a number of famous Star Wars characters have been either rumored or confirmed to appear in the new season. Now, a synopsis for upcoming Season 2, Episode 3 has appeared to suggest we’ll be meeting one of them very soon.
As spotted by eagle-eyed Star Wars fans on Reddit, the (admittedly very brief) synopsis for the episode reads: “The Mandalorian braves high seas and meets unexpected allies.”
Of course, the most exciting part of that description is the fact that Mando will be joined by “unexpected” allies. While fans have a few ideas of who those allies could be, we’ve got a strong feeling one of them will be WWE superstar Sasha Banks’ character.
Who is Sasha Banks playing on The Mandalorian?
It’s still unknown who Banks is playing in The Mandalorian, but her appearance as a mysterious onlooker in the trailer for Season 2 left many excited to find out what role she would play in the show’s future.
One of the most popular theories right now is that Banks is playing Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian from the animated series Star Wars Rebels who once possessed the Darksaber.
The character’s live-action debut would certainly be a fan-pleasing moment, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this happens.
Other suggestions from fans include Katee Sackhoff appearing as Bo-Katan Kryze, Rosario Dawson making her debut as Ahsoka Tano, or more screen time for fellow Mandalorian Boba Fett, who made a surprise return this season.
Fortunately, we don’t have too long to wait to find out which “unexpected allies” will appear on the show, as The Mandalorian season 2 episode 3 will be available to stream on Disney+ from Friday, October 13.
