The Book of Boba Fett‘s season one finale featured betrayal, a lengthy shootout, a renegade rancor, annihilator droids, and two infamous bounty hunter’s facing off. And none of those moments were even among the episode’s most important development. What was? These are the six biggest takeaways from Star Wars’The Book of Boba Fett‘s “In the Name of Honor.” An installment that also served as prelude to the return of The Mandalorian.

This post contains spoilers for The Book of Boba Fett“Chapter 7.”

The Book of Boba Fettdoubled as a mini-season of The Mandalorian. One that also answered our biggest question after the original show’s season two finale. Grogu wasn’t away from Din Djarin for long. The Force-sensitive tyke elected to be with his surrogate dad over continuing his Jedi training with Luke Skywalker. As we already explained, that decision has huge ramifications for both the future of the Jedi Order and Mandalore. Especially now that we know Grogu received instruction previously from yet-to-be-revealed masters.

He used all his powers to save his fellow foundling in this episode. And he’ll need those skills to stay safe on The Mandalorian. Countless dangers and threats await the pair. But that would be true even if they remained apart. They’re both better off together. As are fans of their show.

Din Djarin holds the Darksaber, which he won (and kept) in combat. He’s brave, noble, and fully committed to the strictest of Mandalorian creeds. He is a worthy warrior to fulfill the prophesy of that ancient sword, which says the Darksaber’s owner will one day restore Mandalore to glory and reunite its people. But “Mando” might not be the best candidate to do that. Tarre Vizsla created the Darksaber 1,000 years ago. He was the first and only Jedi Mandalorian. Grogu might be the second.

Grogu abandoned his training with Luke Skywalker, but its not clear he needed it anyway. Luke himself said he wasn’t teaching Grogu so much as he was helping Grogu remember his past lessons. Grogu, who stood before a rancor and subdued it with the Force, might already be a Jedi. He’s certainly a Mandalorian foundling. One who believes in family more than the Jedi ever did. His future as the hope of both the Jedi Order and Mandalore will be a big part of The Mandaloriangoing forward.
