Like most finales, The Book of Boba Fett "Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor" was not without a fair few huge reveals. And finally, after two episodes dedicated to the Mandalorian and Grogu, the show returned to the titular bounty hunter. But did the finale really have any major surprises left in the tank after the two epic preceding episodes? Of course - this is Star Wars we're talking about!
Here are five major reveals from The Book of Boba Fett's seventh and final episode.
5. Grogu is Back
While Grogu had already made his not-so-long-awaited comeback in The Book of Boba Fett "Chapter 6: From the Desert Came a Stranger", that episode left on something of a major cliffhanger, with Grogu's fate as a Jedi hanging in the balance. In that episode, Luke Skywalker gives Grogu an option: choose to remain with the Jedi and forego any emotional attachments, or return to the Mandalorian, Din Djarin, and never return to Jedi training.
It was certainly an odd predicament to put a child in (despite being 50 years old, Grogu is indeed a child, and, for all intents and purposes, is five years old, as his species ages ten times slower than humans). Nevertheless, it's great to see him back with Din Djarin, and despite having seemingly been kicked out of Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy, he's still picked up a thing or two from the legendary Jedi Knight when it comes to the Force.
4. Who Killed the Tusken Raiders
Earlier in the show, after spending a long time living with a group of Tusken Raiders out on Tatooine's Dune Sea, Boba Fett is horrified when he discovers that the Nikto biker gang has destroyed their camp and murdered all of its inhabitants. Their mark can be seen at the camp, and it appears to be a revenge attack for Boba having fought them at a bar on Tatooine, in an attempt to steal their speeders to protect his people from Pykes.
But in "Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor", during a conversation between Cad Bane and the Pyke Syndicate, it is revealed that the latter were the ones responsible for wiping out the group of Tusken Raiders, and framing the Nikto biker gang for the attack by leaving their mark. Later, Cad Bane provokes Boba Fett, telling him the Pykes were the ones who killed his Tusken family. But fortunately, Boba ends up killing both Bane and his clients.
3. Grogu's Force Abilities
As we touched upon earlier, Grogu has a couple of new Force skills up those tiny sleeves, having spent a considerable amount of time training with Luke Skywalker on that mysterious forest planet we saw in the previous episode. While they're non-specific abilities, Grogu still demonstrates that he has become more powerful than when we last saw him (officially) in The Mandalorian Season 2.
During the war in Mos Espa, Grogu manages to destroy one of the large battle droids by ripping one of its legs off, and later, when Boba Fett's pet rancor is wreaking havoc in the city, having been panicked by Cad Bane's flamethrower, Grogu uses the Force to calm the creature down, and ultimately sends him to sleep. But what's particularly great about this scene is watching Grogu cuddle up next to the giant creature and join him for a nap!
2. The Rancor
Fans were surprised when the Twins gifted Boba Fett with giant pet rancor before departing Tatooine, admitting defeat, that the Pyke Syndicates had drained the planet of all its worth, rendering it utterly meaningless and of no value to the Hutts. The rancor was placed in the palace's rancor pit, where Boba Fett told Danny Trejo's character - some sort of rancor-wrangler - that he intended to one day ride the rancor like a bantha!
Well, this is definitely one of those lines of dialogue fans don't really tend to forget, and in the finale, when Boba Fett shoots off into the air to bring back "reinforcements", it's pretty obvious where he was headed! Moments later, when all hope seems lost, the giant claws of the rancor appear on one of the rooftops of a nearby building, and we see Boba riding his pet rancor and laying waste to several Pykes in the process!
1. Cobb Vanth is Alive
At the end of the previous episode, "Chapter 6: From the Desert Came a Stranger", fans were horrified to watch Cad Bane - who was making his first appearance in live-action, having previously only appeared in animation in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: The Bad Batch - guns down Cobb Vanth on the streets of Free Town. Vanth had only previously appeared in The Mandalorian once but quickly became a fan favorite.
Throughout The Book of Boba Fett finale, we seem to receive confirmation - from both Cad Bane and the people of Free Town - that Cobb Vanth is indeed dead, despite having seemingly been shot in the shoulder (the fate of his deputy, on the other hand, was never really up for debate!). But in a mid-credits scene, it's revealed that Cobb Vanth is alive, as we see him healing, unconscious, in the bacta tank, while the Mod artist waits nearby...
