Could the Mandalorian Armorer come back into the show in The Mandalorian Season 3? In a recent appearance at Dragon Con, Armorer actress Emily Swallow played coy when asked if she would be back in Mando S3. However honestly, I always thought this was a character we would see again. I think for Dinn Djarin’s own character arc he needs to meet that Armorer again. The Armorer is clearly alive and has moved shop to parts unknown after Navarro was compromised.
Considering the development of Dinn so far when it comes to removing his helmet, I think running into one of his own extreme faction would make for good drama. However, for now, Swallow is keeping her lips sealed. The Direct were in attendance at Dragon Con and this is what Swallow and Omid Abtahi (Dr. Pershing) said when asked if they would be back for Season 3.
“Season 3 of what?”
Once the jokes subsided, the actress made clear she was in no position to comment on the matter:
“I can neither confirm, nor deny.”
Abtahi seemed to project uncertainty about any developments:
“I’m always hopeful… we’ll see.”
Swallow’s response to a question regarding potential penance for those breaking the Mandalorian creed was perhaps more indicative of future plans for the character:
“Interesting question. I’m trying to figure out what I can say […] I would imagine that there has to be some sort of punishment, and I hope there would be redemption. I think there has to be redemption, because I think there’s always redemption in Star Wars.”
Given the current status of Grogu is off camera with Luke Skywalker, I’m not sure I see a need for Pershing in Season 3. However we have no idea where the story is headed overall, so perhaps Pershing is needed and Abtahi will get that call?
What are your hopes for The Mandalorian Season 3? What do you think of the comments by Armorer actress Emily Swallow and Dr. Pershing himself Omid Abtahi Sound off below as always.
