Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 5: The Return of the Mandalorian

Writer: Jon Favreau

Director: Bryce Dallas Howard

Summary: Our story takes a slight detour to show us what Din Djarin has been up to lately. He shows the Darksaber to the Armorer, only to be challenged by Paz Vizsla, who believes that because he is a descendant of the Darksaber’s creator, Tarre Vizsla, he should be the one to weild it. Although he defeats Vizsla, he is rejected by the tribe for removing his helmet. Upon returning to Mos Eisley, Djarin once again meets Peli Motto, who gives him a new N-1 Starfighter to replace the Razor Crest. Shand appears and asks for his help.

Review: I have a major problem with this episode: Boba Fett was nowhere to be seen! This is supposed to be his series, right? I wanted to enjoy the episode, as it was actually good to see Djarin, but I was bored. With the exception of the duel, there wasn’t much action. Couldn’t they have just made this an extra episode of The Mandalorian? Why sideline the main star? Shand is the only character we see, and she doesn’t even show until towards the end! I’m sorry, but this wasn’t good.

Grade: D
