Thomas’ Review | The Book Of Boba Fett (Episode 3: The Streets of Mos Espa)
“The Book of Boba Fett delivers another entertaining episode with some badass action!”
It’s Wednesday so it’s time for the third chapter of The Book of Boba Fett. This one is untitled ‘The Streets of Mos Espa.’
While last week’s episode mostly focused on the flashbacks, this week main focus is on the present timeline. A lot of things happen in this episode. It significantly moves the story forward and sets things up for what comes next. And what comes next sounds very exciting!
It’s definitely not easy to be a Daimyo for Boba Fett. He faces many challenges. I love how Jon Favreau has developped the character. I really care about Boba because he’s not just cold-blooded killer. He wants to lead Mos Espa in the right way. He is no tyrant. On the contrary, he has a sense of responsibility. Indeed, he knows that if he wants to rule with respect, he needs to be benevolent. That’s how he can find allies. Plus, Temuera Morrison makes the character really likeable. With every new episode, Boba is climbing my top of favorite Star Wars characters!
ALLIES AND THREATS
Speaking of allies, Boba encounters interesting new characters this week. I like their designs, it’s so Star Wars-y but I am bothered by the Vespa speeders. It does feel weird, like it’s too much like in our world.
After last week’s episode, a lot of people talked about Black Krrsantan. That character was first introduced in the comics and I was quite happy to see him in live action. He is quite imposing. The spikes on his shoulder pads and the scar also add to his menacing presence. This week we get to see more of Krrsantan. The level of badassery is high, very high (to quote K-2SO). Some threats seem to be resolved but only because there is something bigger on the way. Though, I do hope to see more of the Twin Hutts later on or even in another series.
A LOOK INTO THE PAST
There is only one flashback this week and the whole sequence features some of the best shots of the series so far. Boba Fett riding a Bantha is one of the coolest things ever in Star Wars! Beyond that, it’s also an emotional sequence and I didn’t expect that at all!
The flashbacks have also brought us a wonderful gift each week – seeing Kamino and young Boba Fett (played by Daniel Logan) again. And as a prequel fan, it makes me so happy. I wouldn’t have imagined to see Kamino in live action again. It makes me even more emotional considering what happens to this planet in The Bad Batch. Considering, we have these flashbacks one has to wonder if we will see Jango Fett later this season? I know I would totally freak out! And let’s be honest, it’s totally possible, they have Temuera Morrison right there!
