let me just say this episode could have ended super easily by Boba summoning his Slave 1 ship from his gauntlet, and once it arrives, he hops in and just destroys all forces opposing him. He could have literally won in a couple minutes. Not sure why he didn’t utilize his ship. We’ve seen what ship blasters can do the shields like in the phantom menace when Anakin blasted droidekas in his royal n-1 naboo starship.
leaving the last episode with grogu making that massive decision between the chainmail armor and yoda’s lightsaber, we start off the season finale of book of boba fett with boba, fennec, mando and the modders at the aftermath of the blown up lounge of garsa fwhip. Mando tells Boba that Cobb is coming, Boba wants to head back to his palace as he has a better vantage point there from the roofs and lookouts. The modder tells him to stay in Mos Espa and protect the people, so he does. I felt it was a little weird he’s listening to this modder. I’m not a fan of boba constantly listening to others, and not just doing what he wants.
Cad Bane walks to the head quarters of the Pyke leader where the mayor of mos espa is also there, along with the leaders of the territories of the city.
We see the mayor seem a little firm with not wanting his town to be fully run by the pykes and tells them not to be so blaster happy blowing things up.
Cad assures the pyke leader he’ll get Boba out, which we see he goes to him later to have a conversation.
Luke’s X-wing lands down and I thought luke would be in it, escorting grogu to tatooine, but he’s not there. He sent R2 to taxi him there. I felt this was a little careless on Luke’s part. It feels like Luke didn’t care much, so he just sent Grogu off without his protection. That’s an odd move. It would have been cooler if Luke went with him, and showed up during the battle, taking out the droids until he gets slammed into the wall by a evil force user, perhaps a dark jedi much like jorus c’baoth or maybe darth talon who appears with Crimson Dawn. I feel this episode needed more than just the man vs man pykes. It had a ton of cool flashy scenes, but no exposition beyond Cad who dies in a second, and the pykes who eventually get taken out. The Rancor was epic beyond measure, but again, it’s flash, it needed more muscle than the pykes.
As Cad walks up to Boba to blast him, He tells Boba this is his final lesson. So he says this because Cad Bane mentored Boba, and he did this because Jango mentored him. So in a way, he kind of helped look after and raise Boba a little bit when he was a boy. As he takes boba’s helmet off, he stands up to end him when he gets hit off his feet with Boba’s gaffi stick from the Tusken Raiders. Showing that he’s completely cut himself off from the ties of his father and ways of his past as a bounty hunter, and now as Boba Fett, incorporating the ways of the Tuskens into what he knows. It’s a poetic ending, however it’s just too fast for Cad. I feel he came in the show just to die. There’s so much more he could have been part of from the start which would have made their duel more climactic as well.
Cad gets pierced through the chest stomach and dies in a deflating exhale. As he is left for dead on the sands of Tatooine, we hear a beeping. I think this beeping is a signal sent to someone that he’s dead. Which brings in the bigger guns, like Crimson Dawn, or, it calls for his ship and droid to come and retrieve him so he can be put in bacta or taken to be healed. Cad has obviously had some upgrades and I feel his metal plate on his head shows he can’t die very easily, even when shot to the dome. So I don’t think he’s really dead, at least I hope.
The Rancor has a king kong moment, tries to eat Mando but can’t because of the Beskar, and Grogu walks up to it to use beast control much like Anakin did on the Reek in the geonosis arena in star wars episode 2 attack of the clones, which funny enough is where boba fett’s father, Jango Fett, dies at the hands of Mace Windu. We saw a flashback of that scene at the very beginning of the season where little Boba holds Jangos helmet.
Boba walks through his town and the people respect him.
He throws Black Krrsantan a melon and the final line is a joke that the wookie gets a melon and they don’t.
We see Din and Grogu flying through space, reunited once again. Grogu is sitting in R2’s spot like in the phantom menace when Anakin blew up the trade federation station. They blast into hyperspace and that’s the end of the season. The music now says Fett, Boba Fett, which it never did before.
Thanks for being part of the watch party and the show!
