The latest episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 may have been tragic considering that it saw the destruction of the Razor Crest and the capture of Baby Yoda. However, fans have been pointing out that there were some cute moments in Chapter 14: The Tragedy, citing the adorable scene where Grogu is surrounded by butterflies. But did those blue butterflies actually tease at a darker connection between The Child and Darth Vader?
In The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 6, Mando took Baby Yoda to the Jedi Temple on Tython where The Child sat down to meditate. Not surprisingly, Star Wars fans have pointed out that his meditation scene is very similar to what happened in the comic book Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith #8.
So maybe all Force users meditate this way, right? There's another thing about the scene in The Mandalorian that is hauntingly similar to the comics. Like Baby Yoda, Vader himself is surrounded by blue butterflies.

But what could this possibly mean? It certainly solidifies the fact that Baby Yoda is struggling with his sadness and anger. After all, the blue butterflies signified an internal conflict with the Sith Lord in the comic book. They may have been used to signify the same thing for Grogu.
At this point, fans are already worried for Baby Yoda not just because he has been captured by Moff Gideon. In the final moment of the latest episode, Grogu unleashes his anger on Stormtroopers that have entered his cell, Force-choking them before throwing them across the room. Needless to say, this isn't a good sign for The Child.
