Things In The Mandalorian Season 3 That Upset Fans The Most

For two seasons, most of the drama in “The Mandalorian” came from the fact that audiences could never rest easy that Din Djarin and Grogu would be able to stay together. As the two main characters grew closer, it often seemed like this father-and-son-like duo were destined to be pulled apart. But, with Mando essentially getting custody of The Child in “The Book of Boba Fett,” some fans felt that the air had been let out of the show’s balloon. What was “The Mandalorian” even about now? 

Season 3 was set up to explore some compelling ideas. Would Din Djarin return to Mandalore and redeem himself in the living waters or would he see the error in the Way? Would the various factions of Mandalorians scattered across the galaxy challenge each other for rule of the planet or put aside their differences and unite? We got that show in the last two episodes. However, throughout Episodes 1 through 6, that A plot got bogged down with B plots about IG-11, Nevarro and pirates, amnesty programs on Coruscant, a rescue from a raptor nest, and a visit to a droid-run outer rim planet. 

“Directionless” is a word that got thrown around a lot by underwhelmed viewers this season. The focus jumped around. New plot threads, sometimes without very high stakes, kept getting introduced before old ones had been fully formed. It was unclear whether Din Djarin, Bo-Katan, or Grogu was the season’s real protagonist. Episode 8 may have stuck the landing, but the show meandered a bit too aimlessly for some on its way to Din Djarin and Grogu’s new front porch.
