The Book of Boba Fett Episode 7 is the seventh and final instalment of a science fiction action-adventure drama series, created by Jon Favreau based on George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise. The seven-part series follows the exploits of fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett (from the original Star Wars trilogy) as he sets himself up as a crime lord on Tattooine, with fellow bounty hunter Fennec Shand.
Entitled “In the Name of Honour”, The Book of Boba Fett Episode 7 wraps up the quest of Boba Fett to wrap off the advances of the Pyke syndicate and to protect the people of Mos Espa. Much of this finale contains a couple of surprises and for that reason, there shall not be any spoilers in this review. Instead, we shall use this opportunity to summarised our thoughts on this much anticipated series featuring the fan favourite bounty hunter.
Essentially of course, the gist of this finale boils down to an epic battle between the two opposing forces outlined above. The Mandalorian returns to give aid to Boba Fett and on the Pike front, Cad Bane returns – after his live action debut last time out – to confront Boba Fett. Overall, the fight sequences were thrilling with a couple of Easter Eggs for diehard Star Wars fans, that we will leave for your own discovery, dear reader, if you have not watched the episode.
In general, The Book of Boba Fett was a mixed bag. Expectations were high after Fett’s appearances in The Mandalorian but based on online responses, it’s fair to say that the majority have been disappointed with how Fett has been portrayed in this series. Fett isn’t the cold-blooded killer he used to be, with his experiences with the Tuskens changing his perspective on life.
However, it’s fair to say that this disappointment was more than made up with the two episodes where Boba Fett played a minor role in his own series. The scenes with Ahsoka Tano and Luke Skywalker together probably made fans forget about how lame they thought this version of Boba Fett was. That all said, hopefully, Fett was redeemed somewhat in their eyes, with his role in the finale.
