The Book of Boba Fett episode 2, “Chapter 2 The Tribes of Tatooine” sees Fett and Fennec discover who sent the assassins after them. A new threat is revealed and a flashback shows how Boba was finally accepted into the Tusken tribe. Lets get into this Book of Boba Fett episode 2 easter eggs and breakdown.
Spoilers ahead if you have not watched The Book of Boba Fett episode 2.
Who in the World Is The Black Wookie?
Black Krrsantan is a male Wookiee bounty hunter during the Galactic Civil War. Originally captured from his homeworld Kashyyyk and trained as a gladiator, Black Krrsantan later became a bounty hunter. He was regularly hired by the crime lord Jabba the Hutt and at one point, was even hired by Darth Vader to track down other characters like Doctor Aphra.
Perhaps more comic book characters will make their live-action debut soon. Doctor Aphra, maybe?
Jabba The Hutt’s Cousins
Those who only watch the movies might be surprised but the Star Wars lore beyond the movies have always established the Hutts as many crime lords throughout the galaxy. Jabba The Hutt was the leader of the Hutt Clan, but there are actually many other members of the family out there with their own bases and organizations.
However, it’s currently unknown who these two Hutts are, besides the fact that they’re Jabba’s cousins. It looks like they’re claiming Jabba’s throne and Boba will have to look out for them.
Funeral Pyre Mourning the Death
Boba helps burn his Tusken Raider friends after some of them are taken out by the Pykes, but we’ve seen this happen in Star Wars before: C-3PO burns Jawas in A New Hope, Luke burns Darth Vader’s armor at the end of Return of the Jedi, and there’s another funeral pyre for Qui-Gon Jinn in Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
The Train Run By The Pyke Syndicate
Boba Fett only refers to them as being from the “syndicate”, but they’re actually from the Pyke Syndicate, which is a major criminal organization in the Star Wars universe. They usually engage in the spice (read: Star Wars’ version of drugs) trade. They were especially powerful during the Clone Wars.
The Path to the Palace
We see Fennec Shand leading the assassin she captured in the first episode up the same rocky desert path that C-3PO and R2-D2 took to reach Jabba’s Palace at the beginning of Return of the Jedi. Then they enter through the giant door the two droids and Luke Skywalker all used to enter the location.
Boba Fett Became Part Of A Tusken Tribe & Forged His Own Gaderffii Stick (Or Gaffi Stick)
Yes, that’s not just a spiked polearm staff or spear. The Tusken’s signature weapon is called the Gaderffii Stick (or Gaffi Stick). Now that he’s part of the tribe, Boba Fett has earned his own.
“E Chu Ta” Is A Star Wars Curse Word
This Huttese insult was first heard spoken by a Bespin protocol droid to C-3PO in The Empire Strikes Back, and the captured assassin says it to Boba Fett here.
The Rancor Scene is Back
After the assassin falls through the trap door, we get to see the location where Luke fought the Rancor in ROTJ. Only now it’s empty, thanks to our hero previously having crushed the enormous creature to death with a door. The only thing living here now is apparently a (non-Womp) rat.
Boba Fett name-drops the lava planet where Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker had their climactic duel in Revenge of the Sith, but not even Wookieepedia knows what a “Gumpta” is.
Luke Lost friends
Who would have thought we’d see Luke’s friends Camie and Fixer from the deleted scenes of the original Star Wars show up as two put-upon bar patrons in The Book of Boba Fett? I guess Tatooine really is a small world, after all.
After this, we have five episodes to go. Until next time…
