HIS RECAP CONTAINS THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT SPOILERS.

Don’t let Chapter 5 of The Book of Boba Fett deceive you: You’re still watching the same show, but with a twist! Even if you came into this show never having seen The Mandalorian, there’s plenty here to keep you on your toes. We even head back to Tatooine, the place everyone seems to want to keep coming back to these days.

Over the next few months, we’ll follow up each new episode of The Book of Boba Fett with a quick recap while you’re excitedly yelling in our Discord (don’t forget those spoiler tags!) and waiting for our weekly Bounty Hunt live stream. 

While we’ll stick to recapping each episode here, both our Discord and Bounty Hunt will be perfect places to discuss reactions and predictions for what’s to come. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW.

Let’s go!

Enter: An armored man here to collect a bounty. Not Boba Fett, but instead, Din Djarin, wielder of the darksaber, Mandalorian by creed (for now). He returns to the Armorer having completed his quest to return Grogu to his own kind. Seeing the darksaber, she tells Din the history of the blade and the story of the Night of a Thousand Tears.

The third Mandalorian in the group, Praz Vizsla, challenges Din to a duel to reclaim the saber for himself. Din wins the fight, but when the Armorer learns he has previously broken their creed by removing his helmet, she renounces his right to call himself a Mandalorian. He leaves with the darksaber and boards a commercial flight to Tatooine, but not without a small gift for Grogu forged from the beskar staff he used to defeat Moff Gideon.

Peli Motto surprises Din with a ship that’ll make all prequel kids’ dreams come true, an N1 starfighter that almost gets Din in trouble with the New Republic (again). When he lands, Fennec Shand is waiting to offer him a job.

Din agrees to help Boba Fett, but only after he pays a visit to an old, tiny friend.
