I like that aspect myself. The Mandalorian character, I assume, is similarly like Han Solo; “Kid, I’ve flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff, but I’ve never seen anything to make me believe there’s one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.” The only prominent Force-sensitives are Luke and Leia, and I’m sure they’re not freely using the Force as a circus trick. Until Luke actively creates his new Jedi Order, I imagine most of the galaxy is still traumatized to continue to shield their eyes from any one that claims some magical power exists. That requires a ton of deprogramming from the Imperial propaganda.

A little confused by your question though. Like at the end? I’m pretty sure he knows the baby had helped stop that beast. He didn’t seem to acknowledge that the baby was trying to help, I assume, heal his wound earlier in the episode, if that’s what you mean. At the end, when he’s trying to talk with Kuiil, I think he just couldn’t find the proper words to fully describe the event without sounding like a lunatic.

JEDIT: Tobar pretty much said what I was going to say in regard to the question.

On a backwater world with little to no contact with the greater galaxy sure. But the Jedi were guardians of the Republic for over a thousand generations. The Mandalorians themselves have clashed with the Jedi a number of times in their history.

While that’s true on some levels, the main saga doesn’t have Mandalorians clashing with Jedi, and the KOTOR series took place 3,000 years before the rise of Vader. Within the KOTOR story itself, the Mandalorians have been broken up before and have had to have new leaders (new Mandolore so to speak). And from what I understand, Darth Maul has been such leader as well? Not completely sure, but regardless, that clan of tribal warriors isn’t quite as scholarly as the more sacred and carefully guarded Jedi history. Basically, so much history must be butchered, perhaps even sabotaged from within and externally. Plus, it’s rather vague to say how this new character got into this clan, and what the requirements are.
