The Mandalorian May Remove His Helmet More In Season 3 Teases Pedro Pascal

The Mandalorian may take his mask off more in season 3, teases Pedro Pascal. Season two of the hit Star Wars live-action series ended with the titular Mandalorian Din Djarin voluntarily taking off his mask to bid farewell to Baby Yoda. Djarin had lived most of his life with the belief instilled in him that removing his mask would break the Mandalorian code.

Djarin made it clear to anyone who crossed his path from the beginning of season one that he was not allowed to remove his Mandalorian helmet. When asked by Cara Dune what would happen if he ever did remove his helmet, Djarin explained he wouldn’t be able to put it back on again, due to breaking the Mandalorian code. However, Djarin starts to loosen up a bit about his rule after meeting fellow Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze in “Chapter 11: The Heiress.” He learns from Bo-Katan that he was a child of the Watch, a group of religious purists (or zealots depending on the point of view) who wanted to re-establish the ancient ways of Mandalore. It was thanks to Bo-Katan that Djarin learned that not every Mandalorian follows the strict helmet rule. Djarin then removes his helmet twice, once to gather information to save Baby Yoda in “Chapter 15: The Believer,” and the other instance to say goodbye to Grogu in the season 2 finale.

Pedro Pascal teased the possibility of Djarin taking off his helmet more during The Mandalorian season 3. Pascal elaborated more on this possibility during an interview with IndieWire. Check out what Pascal had to say on the mask matter below.

As much as he says this is the way, that doesn’t mean this is the only way…I find it fascinating playing with that. We don’t know what he ends up being. He took his helmet off in a room full of people.”

It would definitely be interesting to see Djarin take his mask off more in season 3, as long as it makes sense story-wise. What made Djarin’s mask-removal so noteworthy in season 2 was because he did so for Baby Yoda not once, but twice. Now that Djarin is facing a season 3 future without Baby Yoda, it will be intriguing to see how the Mandalorian’s story goes forward with his actions not revolving around the safety of his adorable alien companion.

Now that Djarin possesses the Darksaber and has no other current quests, will he agree to help Bo-Katan reclaim Mandalore? It would be an interesting way to have Djarin learn more about Mandalorian ways besides the ones he grew up with. Djarin is technically the rightful ruler of Mandalore based off of his possession of the Darksaber alone. However, based on his willingness to give Bo-Katan the Darksaber in “Chapter 16: The Rescue,” it doesn’t seem to be a title he would ever want. Could an unforeseen circumstance in season 3 force Djarin to accept his new position as the Mandalore?

The Mandalorian season 3 is a long ways away, but the possibilities of where the story could go from the season 2 finale are endless. It will be interesting to see Djarin’s journey post-Baby Yoda as the Mandalorian learns more about his past, present, and future. Will that involve more pivotal unmasking moments? Fans will have to wait and see when season three of The Mandalorian premieres on Disney+.
