Mandalorian has come to a close for the season. This third installment has been our least favorite out of the three, although there have been some memorable moments, particularly in Episode 7. Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito reprised his role as the villainous Moff Gideon and we got to learn more about his plot as the season progressed, as well as his animosity towards Din Djarin and Grogu. Now that the Season 3 finale of The Mandalorian has aired, let’s take a look at what happened to Moff Gideon.
#1. Does Moff Gideon die in The Mandalorian finale?
Yes, Moff Gideon dies in The Mandalorian finale. We see him engulfed in a fireball after a whole ass ship (excuse us: a whole ass Imperial Star Destroyer) crashes into his base on Mandalore. That’s an almost mile-long starship capable of housing 10,000 personnel and probably weighing close to 40 million tons. That’s 109 Empire State buildings. That’s 400 aircraft carriers. Think of all that fuel. Whatever a Star Destroyer burns would have to be basically otherworldly, meaning it could burn at temperatures that far exceed the heat of jet fuel—which burns around 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit During an action-packed climax, Moff Gideon does battle with Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff).

Meanwhile, Din and Grogu fight – and defeat – Praetorian Guards. As a spaceship approaches the base on which they are duelling, Gideon orders Bo-Katan to hand over her Darksaber, in exchange for a warrior’s death. Bo-Katan refuses and runs at him. In response, he destroys the Darksaber, removes her mask, and prepares to kill her. “Mandalorians are stronger together,” states Bo-Katan, just as Din and Grogu appear, resulting in a three-on-one fight playing out as the spaceship ploughs into the base. While sparks fly, and the base crumbles, a ball of flames engulf the platform where Moff Gideon stands, killing him. It nearly takes out the Mandalorians too, but Grogu uses the Force to save Din Djarin and Bo-Katan.
#2. Could Moff Gideon return? Could he actually be alive?
No clues as of yet exist. Narratively, the series could go in either direction. The Mandalorian could operate both without a main antagonist—which, for the next season, appears to be the case, with Mando and Grogu likely fighting other remnants of the empire—or with one major antagonist, which could be Admiral Thrawn or Commandant Brendol Hux. The series has options.
Although we don’t see him actually die during the finale, that appears to be the end of this version of Moff Gideon. But over the course of Season 3, we learned that he has created clones of himself, infused with the Force. Those clones are destroyed midway through Episode 8. But the beauty of a clone is that you can make as many as you want. So while Moff Gideon is dead for the time being, don’t rule out his clone – or clones – existing somewhere else in the galaxy, just waiting to appear in a future season of The Mandalorian.
