The episode titles for The Mandalorian Season 2 have been leaked and it seems as though one of them teases the Empire’s return in the show.
I discussed this leak yesterday and also pointed out in the article that one of these episode titles seems to suggest the Empire’s return.
However, I wanted to go over that idea in a little bit more detail today.
Emre Kaya revealed via Twitter some potential episode titles for The Mandalorian Season 2.
It does seem as though these episode titles are genuine.
There are eight episodes in total and it’s the title for Chapter Eight which has got people talking.
The episode will be called ‘Chapter Eight: The Empire’.
That seems to hint at The Empire’s return in this episode, which would be interesting to see.
The Mandalorian is set after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.
Could The Empire be making a comeback in The Mandalorian Season 2?

This means that the show is set after the Empire was supposedly defeated by Luke Skywalker and co.
However, the show’s already made it very clear that some members of the Empire are still operating in the shadows.
So, with this in mind, it could be feasible that some sort of version of The Empire is still in operation.
This would explain why people are so desperate to get their hands on Baby Yoda.
It would explain who’s behind it all and I think would serve as a very good finale.
There are also rumours that Season 2 could feature Boba Fett’s return.
Boba was supposedly killed at the beginning of Return of the Jedi.
However, the episode entitled ‘The Bounty’ could be referring to Boba Fett’s return.
What do you make of this news?
Do you think The Mandalorian Season 2 will see the return of The Empire?
