It's time for another episode of The Book of Boba Fett and things just got more exciting for the Star Wars series. Episode 3 brought back some cool characters that we had already met last week. However, it also introduced new figures who are just trying to survive the streets of Mos Espa! SPOILERS AHEAD, PROCEED WITH CAUTION!

In The Book of Boba Fett Episode 3, our titular hero is beginning to realize that maintaining Jabba the Hutt's empire is a lot harder than anticipated. He tries to figure out the best way to manage things as the new Daimyo starting with a troubled water vendor.

The vendor tells Fett that the citizens do not respect him yet then asks him to punish a cyborg gang who has been stealing his water. However, Fett realizes that the gang members are looking for work so he offers them a job as enforcers.

Meanwhile, it looks like someone is determined to relieve Fett of his throne. Black Krrsantan somehow manages to sneak into the palace and attack Fett in his bacta tank but it is promptly stopped by the guards. At this point, the Twins should be more determined to get rid of Fett but they make a surprise move, offering a rancor as a gift.


The Twins declare that they will leave Tatooine and never come back, revealing that they were misled by Mayor Shaiz. While Fett bonds with the rancor in hopes to train it, Fennec Shand takes the cyborg gang to Mos Espa to confront Shaiz. However, he is absent and the majordomo makes his escape.

This leads to an epic speeder chase but the cyborgs still manage to corner the majordomo. Amazingly, he reveals that Shaiz is actually working with the Pyke Syndicate. Furthermore, Fett's informant confirms that the Pykes are coming so the new Daimyo prepares for war.

So what happens in the latest flashback? It looks like Fett has some past issues to deal with. Fett remembers how he left the Tusken Raiders tribe to collect the toll from the Pykes only to return home and find that the tribe was wiped out by the Nikto gang when he was away.

The Book of Boba Fett Episode 3 is titled Chapter Three: The Streets of Mos Espa. The episode is now streaming on Disney+.
