Could Omera Return in Season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian’?

The Mandalorian introduced us to a sprawl of fascinating new characters. Some had multiple appearances through the eight-episode first season while others had starring roles that were relegated to only one episode. One such character was Omera who appeared in the season’s fourth episode, The Sanctuary.

In the episode, she became a brief love interest to Mando as he found himself rather smitten by the widow. But there is something more to that storyline, one that wasn’t touched upon in the actual episode.


There’s a point in the episode when The Mandalorian and Cara Dune have to train the villagers on how to protect themselves against the raiders. As Mando tries to help the villagers learn how to shoot we learn that Omera is very handy with a blaster after she shoots her target with startling precision.

How does she know how to shoot so well and why wasn’t that question answered in the actual episode? Is it because that question will be answered in Season 2? But how would it be answered?

Well, apparently there are still some remnants of the Empire making life miserable for everybody. What if Omera was once a soldier for the Empire (not a stormtrooper obviously) and deserted, choosing to hide on a backwater planet and raise a family for the rest of her days? And somehow, I’m not quite sure about the details, she gets captured by the Empire, is taken from her daughter, and Mando, who is also trying to find the potential surviving Mandalorians captured by the Empire, runs into her.

And there we go. Omera and Mando united once more.

What do you think? Would you like Omera to return in Season 2? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.

  1. I really liked Omera. Even though I knew better I was rooting for them to hook up. She seems like a good Yoda mom 🙂 But if I had to guess I’d say the weird blaster skill was just a part of the homage to Magnificent Seven. There’s a scene just like that where one of the villagers is a natural crack shot.
