****SPOILERS FOR 'THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT' BELOW****
The seventh and final chapter of 'The Book of Boba Fett' goes live on Disney Plus at 12am PST/3am EST tonight, and if there's one thing I need to see out of this episode, it's Boba Fett riding that rancor into battle like a warrior. I woulda thought that was a given, considering how it was teased with Danny Trejo earlier on in the series, but after the last couple installments, I don't know if we can count on ANY of our predictions coming true anymore!
Honestly, maybe before I start asking for Boba Fett triumphantly riding his rancor into battle, I should just ask for Boba to make an appearance! I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - the last two episodes of this show are some of the best pieces of Star Wars content since the Original Trilogy - but Boba has undoubtedly been cucked in his show at this point. He needs a HUUUUGE finale to take back what is his here (both literally and figuratively), and some badassery that outdoes his stormtrooper rampage in 'The Mandalorian' Season 2….
That can't STILL be the peak of live-action Boba Fett after an entire season of television based around him comes out, right?! It was awesome, no doubt, but you gotta outdo that! We haven't even gotten to see Boba Fett win a fight in his armor thus far!
If they nail this Rancor scene, though, which is sort've a shoutout to Boba's on-screen debut in the animated portion of the Star Wars Holiday Special….
….I'll forgive it all - the slow vespa chase, the techno tattoo shop, the not having Boba Fett in a large percentage of the Boba Fett show - all of it.
Other hopes/predictions I have for the finale….
-Over an hour in runtime
-One/all of Bossk, Dengar, IG-88, Zuckuss or 4-LOM to show up
-Cad Bane/Boba Fett have some kinda version of their scrapped Clone Wars standoff
-Bane survives/gets away so he can show up more later on
-Grogu returns to Mando and sits in that lil bubble on his Naboo Starfighter
-After seeing how good they got deepfake Luke, maybe deepfake Han? Kid Ben Solo with him?
-Post credits scene to set up Mando S3/Book of Boba S2/Ahsoka S1
What do you think is gonna happen?
