Star Wars fans are raving following the release of The Book of Boba Fett's fifth chapter which featured the much-awaited return of Pedro Pascal as The Mandalorian. The said episode takes a break from Boba's main storyline but that's not to say that it was just filler because Chapter 5 pretty much sets the stage for what fans can expect in the upcoming Season 3 of the MandoVerse's flagship show.

Aside from the epic moments that took place in Chapter 5, the Mando-centric episode pretty much served as an appreciation moment for Bryce Dallas Howard who made her directorial comeback to the Star Wars franchise after helming Chapters 4 and 11 of The Mandalorian. The star of Spider-Man 3 and the Jurassic World franchise reaped praise from the fandom after Chapter 5's premiere and deservedly so.

Even Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen who made a brief appearance in the closing moments of the episode couldn't help but gush over Chapter 5 and praised Bryce for delivering yet another brilliant episode. Taking to Twitter, Ming-Na wrote: "BRYCE!!! Such a cinematic & magnificient chapter! You are a remarkable director! Like #FennecShand, you don’t miss!"

Hats off to Bryce for knocking another episode out of the park and it's already safe to say at this point that we'll see her return to helm more MandoVerse projects in the future. Personally, this is my favorite entry to the series and I genuinely think it'll be hard to top. Let's see what the last two episodes have in store for us.

The Book of Boba Fett's Episode 5 is now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
