The Mandalorian’s first episode of season two premiered on Friday, with the end revelation leaving many fans theorizing what’s in store for this season. The main theory suggests that a major new character is set to join the clan.

The show is set around five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, following a Mandalorian called Din Djarin.

This season opened with the Mandalorian heading to the Outer Rim, looking for more of his people.

With a brilliant start to the second season, earning praise from viewers worldwide,  it’s hard to know where the show can go from here. How could it be beaten? Well, leave it to the fans to find out.

Cobb Vanth to join the Mandalorian clan?

As one of the biggest franchises, there’s no surprise that new Star Wars content means new fan theories about what’s to come for the rest of the season. And they have not disappointed.

The appearance of Cobb Vanth, a character who originated in the Aftermath book trilogy, left many wondering if we would see his return. The potential of yet another spin-off is already being discussed among fans.

However, one particular thread on Reddit has drawn a lot of attention, suggesting that Vanth, will play a much bigger role in Season 2 than first expected.

This would not only give the opportunity to develop on his story from the books, but also give some answers about his armor.

Although Djarin took the Mandalorian armor from Vanth in ‘The Marshal’, its origin will inevitably pose a lot of questions, especially after a glimpse at the return of a character thought to be long dead.

This could then bring about the question of what actually makes a Mandalorian – is it the person or the armor?

To build on this theory even further, one user (Danlozis) responded, saying: “I think both Cobb and Cara are going to join Din’s Clan as Mandalorians eventually.”

This would be an interesting direction for the show to go in, building on the current clan of two, including Baby Yoda.

While the theories keep rolling in, fans won’t have long to wait for answers, as the eight-episode season will continue weekly. If Chapter 9 is anything to go by, this season is could be a bigger success than the first.

New episodes of The Mandalorian are available to stream on Disney Plus every Friday.

Actress Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, is going viral after making an account on TikTok – but her lowkey username means that many users are actually stumbling across her account by accident.

The recent buzz surrounding video-sharing app TikTok has got millions of people gravitating towards it to try out some of the viral trends that the app has become most notable for.

This includes a wide range of celebrities who have made accounts to connect with their fans, including Jason Derulo, Lizzo, and more.

TikTok’s user base is growing bigger by the day.

But not every famous person was upfront about their decision to make an account, keeping it quiet to see who would end up finding them first. In November 2020, singer Billie Eilish snuck onto TikTok with a bizarre username that had fans questioning if the account really belonged to her.

Now, actress Maisie Williams seems to be the latest celebrity to join up, under the username ‘lil.hustla.’

The first video from the account was posted on January 30 2021, and she’s since gone on to post many videos that have racked up hundreds of thousands of views and likes.

Her account has already managed to get over 340,000 followers, but that seems like nothing compared to the 10 million followers she has on her verified Instagram account. Although some have dubbed it ‘TikTok’s best-kept secret,’ it seems like the cat is already out of the bag, as some of the star’s videos have up to five million views.

In one video, where people use the Stitch feature to answer the question, “what is your favorite celebrity interview moment,” Maisie included the viral Jimmy Fallon interview in which she pranked viewers by pretending she’d dropped a major spoiler for Game of Thrones.

This was alongside other videos trying out a variety of filters such as the time warp filter, and recreating some of TikToks’ most popular dances.

While lil.hustla does appear to be Maisie Williams’ actual account as her Instagram account is linked in the profile, she’s not currently verified, and people have managed to make some rather convincing fake celebrity accounts in the past for actors like Tom Holland.

Regardless, the lowkey account has certainly been entertaining fans of the star, and it’s got people wondering which other celebrities could already be on TikTok without anyone else knowing.
