The Mandalorian Season 2 Theory: Moff Gideon stole the Darksaber
Darksaber has very interesting lore in the Star Wars storyline and Moff Gideon stealing the saber is a pretty big deal. Tarre Vizsla who was the first and only Mandalorian to become a Jedi created the black lightsaber which was named Darksaber. The House of Vizsla used the Darksaber to unite all the Mandalore community and ruled for many years until the planet fell to a civil war. Darksaber changed hands many times and Bo-Katan Kryze was the last known wielder of the weapon.

There are theories that the Empire destroyed the Mandalorian’s planet in ‘The Great Purge’ and took everything from them. It would explain how Gideon had high-quality Beskar steel along with the Darksaber which could be a great plot point in the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’ on Disney+. Many fans are convinced that Mando Din Djarin will get the Darksaber in the end and reunited all the Mandalore once again.
