Just three episodes in, the new season of the smash Disney+ hit The Mandalorian has continued to see Mando and the Child exploring parts yet unseen in the galaxy far, far away. It's also found them encountering creatures too frightful to mention for those who fear things with more than four legs.
Chapter 11 of The Mandalorian thankfully took a bit of a break from the creature feature fantasia that dominated the first two episodes. Well, sort of. Titled "The Heiress," the latest entry in Mando's quest to return the Child to his people saw the duo hitting the high seas, and indeed running into yet another beastly foe. Luckily, Mando also ran into some people of his own as he and the Child are helped out of their jam by a band of Mandalorian allies.
While this episode of The Mandalorian expands the world of the weapon-worshipping religious sect in fascinating new ways, the arrival of those helmet-eschewing allies undoubtedly delighted die hard Star Wars fans, because there are some very familiar Clone Wars names involved. Chief among this is Bo-Katan, who featured prominently in the beloved animated series as the head of House Kryze, and former Regent of Mandalore.
She was also the one-time wielder of the Darksaber, whose history she also details in "The Heiress." While Star Wars fans were no doubt elated to hear that story and see Bo-Katan in the flesh, they were likely just as happy to see the face of the actor portraying the fearsome warrior, as she also voiced the character in the animated series. Her name is Katee Sackhoff, and any true sci-fi fan should be quite familiar with her face.
