Spoiler warning for the events of boba fett book episode 5!
Okay, with that out of the way: As recently teased, Book of Boba Fett just made a huge return that may have given the series some new life, or at least more attention. We won’t reveal that character’s identity too soon, though, as eyes don’t always fall on the line with the spoiler warning. We have all been there.
but user JannaLynn95 he broke it down into the most succinct format: a meme. Yes, the absent-minded boyfriend is now an absent-minded Star Wars fan, and his eyes are on one of his favorite characters:

Yes, Star Wars fans, Din Dijarin himself, better known as Mando, aka Baby Yoda’s best friend, is back. And as you probably know, Book of Boba Fett episode 5 didn’t try to hide the news. The episode started off hot with Mando collecting a bounty, slicing and dicing aliens inside a butcher shop freezer.
And, yes, he also has the Darksaber. So this is not a flashback. However, one of our employees called this episode a bit of filler. Others state that today is actually the unofficial start of The Mandalorian season 3:
The Boba Fett book was so bad they stopped airing it after the fourth episode and went straight to Mando season 3 😭😭😭January 26, 2022
Fans are also pouring a pint for Temeura Morrison/Boba Fett, who is possibly feeling a bit left out at the moment, as @Calebnavarette expressed with this meme of Willem Dafoe’s behavior turning sour.

The jubilation continued as @Pacifist_Elk noted the obvious sidecar-like bubble pod for Grogu in Mando’s N1 Starfighter. Yeah, it’s a “perfect little Grogu-sized compartment,” and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Let’s be honest though, this gives the N1 a target for the truly heinous of the galaxy who would dare take aim at the cutest little member of the Star Wars world.
I love how Mando’s new ship has a perfect little compartment the size of Grogu for him to ride in when they meet again. pic.twitter.com/DaPv26zr2uJanuary 26, 2022
How does The Book of Boba Fett end properly?
Before The Book of Boba Fett aired, it was jokingly known as The Mandalorian season 2.5, and this return (and backlash) makes that thought seem all too prescient.
Hopefully, though, we’ll get a decent ending to this season, as Fett’s quest for power in Mos Espa has been quite a laborious affair. However, you will have to do it without Command.
Hopefully, the ending of The Book of Boba Fett will have a dramatic and emotional resonance that will make the series feel like it’s worth watching.
