The Mandalorian season 2, episode 6, “Chapter 14: The Tragedy,” has Baby Yoda use the Seeing Stone on Tython, but just what does the Force show him?
Warning: Contains SPOILERS for The Mandalorian season 2, episode 6, “Chapter 14: The Tragedy.”
Din Djarin takes Grogu to Tython in The Mandalorian season 2, episode 6, “Chapter 14: The Tragedy” and places him atop the Seeing Stone, but what does Baby Yoda see in his Force visions? Mando was instructed by Ahsoka Tano to take Grogu to Tython, an ancient Jedi planet that’s incredibly strong in the Force. There, Ahsoka said, Baby Yoda would be able to use the Force to choose his path, while also making himself known to any Jedi who may be able to find and help him.
Mando fulfils his end of the bargain and, after a few brief moments where it may seem like nothing is going to happen, so does Baby Yoda. Sitting on the Seeing Stone, he eventually taps into the Force, going into a trance-like state while a Foce field forms around him, preventing Din from getting to him when he’s in danger. Grogu spends most of “The Tragedy” inside this Force field, seemingly either having visions or reaching out to someone or something through the Force, but exactly what isn’t shown, and once he’s done he’s captured by Moff Gideon and his Dark Troopers.

While The Mandalorian season 2, episode 6 doesn’t offer much of a hint into what Baby Yoda experiences inside the Force, there are a few main possibilities. Of course, Force visions aren’t always completely decipherable or logical, and it may have been that Grogu simply saw a string of different images, similar to Rey’s “Forceback” in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (although that itself was due to her rare Force power, psychometry). Other Force visions in Star Wars have tended to be a little clearer, if not always obvious: Luke Skywalker was able to sense his friends were in danger, while during the Clone Wars Yoda himself had a vision of Order 66, but wasn’t able to stop it. Since they tend to be somewhat darker, then it’s possible that Baby Yoda foresaw grave danger too, especially since the episode is called “The Tragedy.”
Since the idea of using the Seeing Stone was for Baby Yoda to choose his path, then it’s possible that his Force visions were of what would happen if he trained as a Jedi. This again isn’t an unusual plot device – it’s something that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed happened to Leia – and with Grogu’s Jedi backstory recently being raised and Mando trying to reconnect him with that, it’d be a logical option. With that, then it may be that he sees himself being trained by the most likely Jedi Master he could have at this stage: Luke Skywalker. Luke will attempt to rebuild the Jedi Order in a few years from this point, and so Baby Yoda could have a vision of that happening and then its dark fate at the hands of Kylo Ren, which would be suitably foreboding, and may be enough to ward him off wanting to be a Jedi.
Alternatively, Baby Yoda’s Force vision could be a little closer to home. It may be that it shows something bad happening to Din Djarin if he does/doesn’t follow a certain path, or give him a hint at what Gideon and the Empire wants with him. “The Tragedy” ends with Gideon wanting to allow Baby Yoda to continue using the Force and seemingly explore the dark side, encouraging him to be evil, and so Baby Yoda’s Force vision could have shown him a dark side path as well. That could also even stretch to Snoke and Palpatine, whose returns Baby Yoda’s blood could be used to eventually explain. Similarly, there’s a tease at the end of Baby Yoda’s connection to the Darksaber which, if he does become the second Mandalorian Jedi, he would have a claim to; the vision could have shown him that, which is why he’s so interested in it.
Of course, while the big question is what Baby Yoda saw in the Force, it’s also worth wondering who saw him. By using the Seeing Stone, Grogu presumably opened himself up to anyone with a strong connection to the Force, and not just the Jedi. That could have alerted someone like Luke or even Ezra Bridger to his presence, but it could also be a means of having, say, Palpatine learn about the Child. It may be sometime before The Mandalorian reveals all of this, though, unless someone else arrives who can communicate with Baby Yoda like Ahsoka does, since Grogu is still some way off being able to tell audiences this himself.
