The Mandalorian Season 3 left viewers on a cliffhanger in Episode 2 after introducing a new formidable creature. Bo-Katan and Mando reach the Living Waters beneath the mines of Mandalore. Din Djarin begins the process of bathing within them to be able to rejoin the Mandalorian Creed once again.
However, after completing his task, he is pulled into the depths of water. Bo-Katan dives after him and manages to grab him, but not before we see a mysterious creature lurking in the depths.
We only get a glimpse of the tusk and the eye of the dragon-like beast as it opens to look at Bo-Katan, but it’s clear it’s massive. However, it seems the Mythosaur is back, and viewers may not realize how important this could be for the rest of the story.
Let’s get into more details.
Season 3, Episode 2 Ending Explained: The Mythosaur Of Mandalore!
After rescuing Din, Bo-Katan brings him closer to the surface of Mandalore and feeds him pog soup. It is a nourishing food that every Mandalorian has consumed growing up.
As Din feels a little better, he restarts his search for the Living Waters. Although Bo-Katan hardly believes in the lore, she agrees to help Din reach the desired spot. On their way to the door that leads to the Living Waters, Din, and Bo-Katan discuss the devastating nature of the Empire’s fascist actions.
As they get closer to the Living Waters, Bo-Katan digs deeper into her past to reveal why she hates the Creed that Din abides by so religiously. She shows that the Creed was used to command the loyalty of the subjects of the royal family of Mandalore.
Although she never supported the process, she did nothing to embarrass her father, who died fighting to save Mandalore. Din is impressed by this because he relates to Bo-Katan’s father’s love for the Mandalorian way.
Eventually, they get to the Living Waters. Bo-Katan reads out the scripture etched on the walls surrounding the pool. It states that Mandalore the Great had tamed a beast known as the Mythosaur.
The signet that every Mandalorian wears resembles the skull of that Mythosaur. We see Bo-Katan scoffing at it. But when Din walks into the pool to bathe and sinks to the bottom, Bo-Katan jumps to rescue him.
She sees the Mythosaur deep inside the pool, alive and kicking. That’s where the episode ends, though, and we don’t get to see what the Mythosaur is about to do to the two Mandalorians.
Din Djarin Gets Captured In The Mines Of Mandalore
Din Djarin goes to Tatooine to get the memory circuit for IG-11 from Peli Motto. She informs them about its unavailability. Even the Jawas can’t acquire such a rare thing. So, she gives her R5 astromech to Din and even makes some adjustments to the N-1 so that it can fit in there.
Din, Grogu, and R5 make their way to Mandalore now. Din teaches Grogu that a Mandalorian must learn how to read maps so they won’t get lost, no matter where they are in the galaxy. He points out Concordia, Kalevala, and where they are concerning Mandalore.
Upon landing, Din sends R5 to scout the location and check whether the air is breathable. When it doesn’t return, Din takes matters into his own hands and runs into the Alamitoes. He has difficulty tracking them but emerges victorious and returns to N-1 with R5.
Upon further inspection of the atmosphere of Mandalore, Din realizes that it isn’t cursed, and the air is breathable. So, Din proceeds to dive deep into the mines in search of the Living Waters, where he can bathe and redeem himself for taking off his helmet multiple times.
We see some green-eyed creatures lurking in the shadows. Since none of them engage with the father-son duo, things don’t get violent. But Din stops to inspect a discarded and broken Mandalorian helmet.
He is captured by a massive mechanical crab, steered by a creature with a single, mean-looking eye and a skeleton of metal parts and glowing tubes. Grogu tries to rescue Din but fails. That’s why Din tells Grogu to get out of there, board the N-1, get to Kalevala, and request Bo-Katan’s help.
Realizing that his Force powers aren’t consistent, Grogu promptly bails. He does manage to force-push an Alamite, however. After boarding the N-1, Grogu points out the location of Kalevala, and R5 handles the rest.
