The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2 Recap/Short Summary
After getting attacked at Mos Espa, Boba Fett and Shand get hold of one of the assassins. They threaten him to reveal who hired him to kill Boba. The captured assassin reveals that it was Mayor Mok Shaiz. Boba and Fennec meet the Mayor, who denies these allegations. Mok Shaiz says that the assassin belongs to the Order of the Night Wind, and it’s the Twins who must’ve hired him. The Twins are Jabba Hutt’s cousins who want to take over Boba’s position as the new crime lord. The Twins deny and refuse to bow down and seem to threaten Fett.
The rest of the episode occurs in the flashback at Tattooine, where Boba Fett was with the Tusken Raiders after coming out of Sarlacc Pitt. The Tuskens train Boba with tricks and methods to survive in the Dune sea desert. The Tuskens reveal they were attacked by Pyk Syndicate’s Spice Train. Boba Fett helps the Tuskens by stealing speeders and heading to the train station. He attacks the train and warns the Pykes to pay tax money to the Tuskens to pass from the route. He doesn’t harm the Pykes at all.
At the end of the episode, the Tuskens embrace Boba in their tribe. They give him a lizard that will help him find a branch he can use as his gaffi stick. The episode ends with Tusken Raiders’ ceremonial dance, and Boba Fett joins them. We also see a new look of Boba Fett as he joins the Tribe, and he looks extremely powerful.
The first episode of the Star Wars-Disney+ series received a mixed response. In The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2, the story goes a bit forward by showing that The Hutts are not done with Tattooine. The Twins are behind Boba’s throne and may launch another attack. It also looks like the Tuskens are not just side characters. They play a key role in shaping Boba Fett’s personality.
Even though the second episode gives nothing away from the main plot, it was quite engaging. Whether it was Boba Fett’s conversation with the Mayor and the Twins or everything that happened at Tattooine, it was well narrated and directed. There were several easter eggs, too, which I hope the fans spot. The ritualistic ceremonial dance at the end is from the Māori culture, and it was delightful.
The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2: Final Thoughts
Overall, the second episode was decent as the first one itself. Ludwig Göransson’s background and title score never fail to give the chills. It would be interesting to see Boba’s adventures as a part of the Tusken tribe and his leadership at Tattooine.
