February 9, 2022 puts an end to the first season of The Book of Boba Fett with an episode of 61 minutes, which offers different reading points, different plots, many action scenes and some interesting directorial choices.

Warning: The following article contains spoilers about the latest episode of The Book of Boba Fett

At Chapter 7 of The Book of Boba Fett you arrive full of adrenaline after having witnessed not one but two episodes starring the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda. In the meantime it was known that a war was brewing on Tatooine and this, finally, has arrived. After a few scant attempts at negotiation, the Pyke syndicate and what we can call Tatooine's "resistance" led by Boba Fett and Fennec Shand have begun a clash without rules: betrayals, shootings, backstabbing and gestures of loyalty.

The show's main character, Boba Fett, intended to command with respect but unfortunately for him it was Fennec Shand who was right by arguing that you must first impose yourself by force. Tatooine's unwritten law is this but Fett intended to change it. Temuera Morrison's character has never been a politician and / or a good guy in an absolute sense, indeed his reputation as a bounty hunter has always portrayed him as ruthless, determined and strong. Despite that, then, Boba thought of to be able to change its nature, to stop the role of bounty hunter (he himself denies that he is) and to bring peace to a territory that for years has been used to living in terror.

The experience, which can be considered spiritual and mystical, with the Tusken it changed Boba, but it also showed that on Tatooine it is violence that puts an end to the discussions: the Sand People have been killed and Boba has retaliated by killing in turn those he thought had slaughtered "his" people.

Physical violence is an important theme in a series like this and, personally, I loved the fact that Boba Fett's constant pursuit of dialogue or respect has not found an answer: you cannot change the nature of a killer. , a trade union or an entire community. Otherwise he would certainly have lost The Book of Boba Fett and its western nature, where the law of the "fastest" to draw the gun is in force.

The leaders of Tatooine had sworn to Boba Fett not to get between him and the Pykes, but the "god of money" guided them otherwise. All those who have been honest, good-hearted and reasonable up to that point have been honest to the end: the people of FreeTown are rescued to the aid of Boba Fett for the good name of a gentleman like Cobb Vanth, Din Djarin, though he had the chance to leave a war not his own, he was left at the cost of his own life, the guys with mechanical parts and the same wookiee Black Krrsantan got a second chance from Boba and for this they return the favor. It is no coincidence that the episode is titled "In the name of honor".

The duel between Boba Fett and Cad Bane

The scene that in my opinion most represents the concept according to which nature does not change in this episode it is the duel between Boba Fett and Cad Bane. The two know each other well and both are so determined that they cannot abandon their mission: once again 

Their duel is not just simple action. The two verbally tease each other until Cad Bane offers a not just truth to Boba Fett by telling him:

But look, the Quacta that makes the Stifling look slimy.

Both of these names probably refer to two very similar beings. The meaning of Bane's phrase is clear even if these creatures are not known: Bane is telling Fett that the two of them are similar and that neither of them can afford to judge the other because it would be like judging himself. In fact, Bane's saying can be associated with the really existing one which reads: "You are like the ox that gives horns to the donkey".

Cad Bane's words are confirmed when, during the final duel between the two, Boba Fett doesn't spare him. In fact, a good hero would not have killed his foe already on the mat indeed, precisely because a former fellow bounty hunter, Boba should have understood Bane's condition. Boba's adventure in The Book of Boba Fett therefore ends with a murder (or with an attempted murder if Bane was still alive) as well as, we must not forget, it began with the cold-blooded murder of Bib Fortuna from part of Fett.

Boba Fett won the respect of the people of Tatooine but first he had to use violence, he had to be the bounty hunter he has always been. Boba Fett hasn't abandoned his true nature.

The Book of Boba Fett, Temuera Morrison comments on the criticisms

The second season of The Mandalorian has given birth to a spin-off starring another bounty hunter or Boba Fett. The series was titled The Book of Boba Fett and is set after the events of Episode VI, when everyone thought Boba Fett had died inside the Sarlaac's stomach in the middle of the Tatooine desert. The series restarts from that point, right from inside the belly of the Sarlaac and proposes a double narrative set both in the present and in the past of the bounty hunter who, in the present period in which the series is set, wants to become a politician taking the place of Jabba the Hutt (now dead).

The series did not have the expected success and was the subject of several criticisms from fans. In a recent interview with ScreenRant lead actor Temuera Morrison talked about the negative aspects of the series but also those that he considers positive and the love shown to him by fans regardless of the result of The Book of Boba Fett:
