Who Was The Person At The End Of The Mandalorian Chapter 5?

Who Was The Person At The End Of The Mandalorian Chapter 5?

The hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian loves
to lob mystery after mystery at us with every episode, and the fifth was no different. Case in point: Who the heck is the person
who discovers Fennec Shand’s body at the end? We can hazard a few guesses. The episode was something of a love letter
to Star Wars fans, as it returned us to where it all started: the desert planet of Tatooine,
where “Mando” heads to get his ship repaired after it sustains damage in a dogfight with
another bounty hunter. “Oh yeah, I’m gonna have to rotate that.” After leaving adorable lil’ Baby Yoda in the
care of mechanic Peli Motto, Mando heads to a very familiar cantina looking for work. There, he finds Toro Calican, a guild member
who just happens to be posted up at the very same table where a certain Rodian bounty hunter
met his end so very long ago. He offers to split the take if Mando will
help him bring in his bounty: Fennec Shand, a notorious assassin who has apparently made
enemies of the wrong people. Of course, it turns out that Calican isn’t
telling the whole truth. He’s not exactly a member of the guild, but
he sure wants to be, and hauling in Shand is his ticket in. He offers to give Mando all of the dough to
assist in bringing in the extremely dangerous, hardened killer and while our hero is just
a bit hesitant, well, money talks. After meeting back at the mechanic’s, the
two set out on speeder bikes, and it doesn’t take them long to find and corner Shand, who
puts up a heck of a fight, but is eventually subdued by the power of deception and teamwork. Unfortunately, Mando now has a bigger problem:
Shand, in attempting to convince Calican to free her so they can team up to kill Mando
and get custody of Baby Yoda, instead convinces him to blast her so that he can attempt the
double-cross on his own. This endeavor doesn’t go well for the inexperienced
bounty hunter. After a confrontation back at the mechanic’s,
Mando manages to get the better of Calican, and use the credits he had on him to pay the
mechanic for his ship’s repairs. He and Baby Yoda continue their flight but
somebody knows they’ve been there. We see Shand’s (presumably) dead body being
approached and examined by an unknown party, dressed all in black with a long, flowing
cape and what looks like a blaster on their hip. Who this mysterious person? We have a few ideas. There is always the possibility that this
person will be one of the many bounty hunters we’ve seen on Mando’s trail over the course
of the season. Baby Yoda is the hottest commodity in the
galaxy, after all. One such random pursuer made a surprise appearance
at the end of the previous episode, just when we thought Mando might finally have found
a safe haven for Baby Yoda. So if he can be tracked to the remote outpost
of the planet Sorgan, he can certainly be tracked to the comparative hot spot of Tatooine. However, we don’t find this to be likely for
one simple reason: why not show the person’s face? If he or she will indeed be another rando
in pursuit of Mando who will otherwise be relatively unimportant to the plot, then there’s
no real reason to conceal their identity. Sure, this party could very well be someone
we haven’t gotten a formal introduction to yet but it’s probably someone who will play
a vital role in episodes to come, hence the mysterious tease. Of course, the possibility also exists that
this is a character we have met before just not in this series. The Mandalorian takes place five years after
the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. And who has a loose but significant connection
to the Mandalorians, whom we last saw in that film falling to his presumed death into the
gaping maw of the Sarlacc pit on Tatooine? That’s right: Boba Fett, whose armor differs
from Mando’s only in color scheme and accessories, and who, like Mando, isn’t so much a Mandalorian
as he is a guy who really, really identifies with the culture. Of course, it’s up for debate whether Boba
actually survived his encounter with the Sarlacc. The extended Star Wars canon states so explicitly,
but the House of Mouse has been very, very quiet on the matter. If indeed it was he who discovered Shand,
it would make sense to hide his helmeted dome for a big reveal in another episode but, if
we’re being honest, we’re pretty sure that this isn’t the case. Here’s why. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we know that
Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon is going to be a major player in The Mandalorian’s
narrative. We’re familiar with that “Moff” title; this
is an old Empire guy, obviously, but what exactly is he after? Esposito himself gave EW a few clues, saying, “He’s an Imperial remnant of a very fine officer
who then switches to become sort of the guardian of the people. But what does he really want? This guy is going to be a big player because
he has an idea of how to keep order.” That’s an interesting statement, because so
far, the hunt for Mando has been pure chaos. The logline for an upcoming episode, though,
indicates that Gideon may have more on his mind than simply bringing Baby Yoda in to
collect a bundle of cash. We recently got a pretty strong indication
that The Mandalorian’s seventh episode, which drops Wednesday, December 18th, will bring
Gideon and Mando face-to-helmet. The logline reads: “An old rival extends an invitation for the
Mandalorian to make peace.” Sure, this could be referring to someone else
The Mandalorian is a show that loves to keep us guessing. Nevertheless, we’re going to go ahead and
register our guess that the black-booted figure seen crouching over Fennec Shand is indeed
Moff Gideon. We can’t wait to see Esposito make his Mandalorian
debut and to see what duplicitous schemes his character might be cooking up. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about The Mandolorian

  1. Earliest I've ever been to a Looper video!

  2. I think that the figure might be Moff Gideon…but I always thought that it might be another Mandalorian.

  3. I found it strange the shots during the day didnt show the two suns.

  4. I'm still waiting for Bill Burr to appear

  5. Bill “Mother F’in” Burr 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮

  6. Just for something different, what if it’s Snoke?

    It’s tattoine and the boots sound like Boba’s.

  11. Rando after mando.. I see what you did there.

  12. damn i didnt even catch this at the end of the episode, i thought the mando stopped by on his way off the planet to pick up the girl anyway to try and claim her for an award.

  13. Listen to this person walking.
    I’m surprised looper didn’t talk about this.
    He’s wearing spurs and who wore those before?? Boba Fett.

  14. Whoever it was, they seem to be wearing leg armor. That means Moff Gideon or Bobba Fett.

  15. BOBA FETT, he survived.

  16. Either Nick Fury or Agen Coulson..🤔

  17. I think baby Yoda will find sanctuary where actual Yoda passed away at.

  18. Looper, great video! Enjoy your Thursday!😍

  19. Cad Bain wore spurs

  20. ..Either Bobba Or Bane..both Bounty hunters,one who survived the Sarlacc…who is to say Bane has not survived all those years in the galaxy…

  21. It’s Ginacarlo Esposito character

  22. im thinking its that black dude in the trailers

  23. Ehh Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian at all not even close. He only uses the Armor of his father he was cloned after Jango Fett.

  24. Its the Bounty Hunter Cade the one that was introduced during the clone wars.

  25. Boba Fett. You can hear similar clanks of his spurs when he walks in Empire. We hear them here….

  26. Cad Bane is the person at the end of episode 5

  27. “Whose armor differs from mandos only in color scheme and accessories”, they just gonna ignore that bobba fetts armor isn’t even beskar.

  28. Or it's someone using Bobas armour…

  29. Few more hrs & we’ll find out who it was along with being left with new questions by the end of the episode….I HAVE SPOKEN

  30. imma call it and say, THE GUNSLINGER is… BIll Burr's character! Not boba or Cad Bane.

  31. Who is the person at the end of episode 5?

    Explains entire episode fuck off

  32. it’s cad bane. he wore a had a long cape and cowboy like boots that made a spur sound

  33. The same Boba Fett music from past movies or shows is playing when the guy is walking to the body

  34. Boba fett died like a bitch on ROTJ. He should return.

  35. Isn’t it Mando who came back but this time returned with his ship? We just saw him leave in his ship and it cut back to this hooded figure with a cape right after so you would assume it’s the same person I mean Mando is wearing a cape and all. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  36. The baby is so sweeeeet🤧❤️😘

  37. Boba Fett, Cad Bane or the Moff

  38. if it was moff gideon, dont you think he would be surrounded by his men

  39. its carl weathers i believe because he lived in the last episode when he try to kill mando

  40. This has to be the dumbest video i have seen

  41. If it’s cad bane I’m gonna shit my pants

  42. OMG It's Boba.. the sound is the same heard when he's about in empire.

  43. Could it be Cad Bane?

  44. So I'm confused is Mandalore gone or not? What ever happened to the factions from star wars rebels

  45. dengar, boba or bossk are my guesses

  46. it is carl weathers.
    i do not know his character name

  47. Never hold a baby with one hand.

  48. I think its the Emperor. I mean he had to be somewhere…

  49. The cape is too long to be boba fett. Also it may not be Spurs you are hearing

  50. All aboard the late train. Took you long enough to notice, everyone else posted it 5 days sooner. Probably lost out on a ton of views. Either way bobas back 👍🏼

  51. People keep using me for some reason

  52. Its the Imperial played by Giancarlo Espisito.

  53. i really hope boba fett makes an appearance in the show

  54. I'm sure the boots belong to Moff Gideon. However, I predict it'll be Boba Fett that rescues the young Dyn Jarren (Mando). This way Boba can be brought back into the universe and not worry about explaining the lost time. It would also allow for that lost time to be made up at a later time (season 2?).

  55. It must be Boba Fett or someone else. Because after watching episode 7, Greef Carga and Moff Gideon’s steps don’t sound like that. Only Boba Fett’s.

  56. It has to be Boba Fett because in the new episode Moff Gideon didn’t have any hint of that sound while walking

  57. Thank-Looper- Happy-Merry-Christmas👍😈The extraterrestre Good

  58. The evidence supports it being boba Fett. Not only the spurs, but also the radio signal beeping.

  59. Its Moff Gideon tracking down the baby yoda himself. He doesn't always have to have an escort of stormtroopers and its the same black cape and black boots.

  60. It's totally Dexter Jetster
