We've now had plenty of time to rewatch the first episode of The Book of Boba Fett to our heart's content, and it's already shaping up to be a great show just like The Mandalorian. However, as it revolves around an iconic Star Wars character, naturally, there have already been some pretty big reveals, and there will likely be many more to come. But let's look back on some of the biggest ones from the first episode before we lose ourselves in the rest of the season!

5. Attack of the Clones Flashback

The episode begins with Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) asleep in a bacta tank, where he's being tormented by memories of his past. And we can't say we're surprised, because he's already lived a pretty eventful life so far! Through his dreams, we revisit Star Wars Episode III: Attack of the Clones, the scene in which a young Boba (Daniel Logan) picks up the helmet of his father Jango Fett (played also by Temuera Morrison), who just moments before was decapitated by Jedi Master Mace Windu (Samuel L Jackson) during the Battle of Geonosis.

4. Kamino Cloning Facilities

During that same dream, we see the cold, crashing waves and the cloning facilities of Kamino, the birthplace of Boba Fett and his father before him, and every other clone for that matter, including Omega and Clone Force 99 as seen in Star Wars: The Bad Batch. While we only get some exterior shots, it's clear that this is a bit of a tease, as we're very likely to revisit Kamino through more flashbacks and dream sequences as The Book of Boba Fett goes on. And this makes perfect sense, because undoubtedly the show will likely want to explore the origins of our favorite bounty hunter.

3. How Boba Survived the Sarlacc

The moment fans have been waiting a long time for! A burning question that has finally been answered: how did Boba Fett survive the sarlacc pit he falls into in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi? Well, now we know, although it was always pretty obvious. After all, anyone equipped with a jetpack and a flamethrower stands a much better chance of surviving the stomach acids of a leviathan creature than say, a stormtrooper! Boba rips, burns, and blasts his way out of the sarlacc's stomach and up onto the equally-hot sands of Tatooine!

2. Boba and Fennec's Relationship

One of the more surprising reveals of The Book of Boba Fett is the dynamic between Boba Fett and his sidekick Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). While we've already seen the pair team up in The Mandalorian Season 2's "The Tragedy", we didn't really get a sense of their relationship. In The Book of Boba Fett, however, we learn that there's actually a lot of dry yet playful back and forth between the two, which creates some interesting chemistry. Will Fennec become the Queen to Boba's King? Who knows, but we think they make a great pair, either way.

1. Boba's Time as a Slave

It might not seem all that surprising at first, but there's a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to Boba's post-sarlacc hell on Tatooine. After emerging from the sands, almost as if he's being reborn, Boba is stripped of his precious armor by Jawas, and then taken as a prisoner by the unforgiving Tuskan Raiders, who waste no time in making him their slave, forcing him to endure the harsh desert and its hot suns. But as we see, Boba quickly makes an impression on his captors when he saves one of their younglings from a sand-dwelling monster.

Fans are now excited to see what else the long-awaited show has in store. While not much has been revealed in the trailers, fans are already speculating that an obscure young Jedi from Star Wars canon will make an appearance. And while we've seen how Boba escapes the sarlacc, we don't think we're quite done revisiting his past, whether it's through flashbacks or dreams.

After all, the life of a clone in the faraway galaxy is a pretty colorful one. And here's to hoping that Temuera Morrison also gets to reprise his role as his father Jango Fett in those flashbacks. Who knows - perhaps the likes of Captain Rex will show up, who would also be played by Morrison. One thing's for sure - the actor isn't going to be out of work anytime soon...

We will cover more major reveals as they unfold in The Book of Boba Fett, so be sure to come back and see if there's anything you missed!
