'The Book of Boba Fett' Episode 5 review: The Mandalorian returns in explosive chapter

Contains spoilers for 'The Book of Boba Fett' Episode 5: 'Return of the Mandalorian'

This one is all about 'The Mandalorian' and right off the bat — There is the Dark Saber, there is a present for Baby Yoda/Grogu and yes, the lil Jedi wam bam is going to be part of Season 3. 'The Book of Boba Fett' presents the second lengthiest episode in the form of 'Return of the Mandalorian' and every minute is worth the watch. In an episode that will stir up quite the frenzy among 'The Mandalorian' fans, it is safe to say that this chapter actually serves the backdoor pilot of 'The Mandalorian' Season 3 due to release late 2022.

After his epic battle with Moff Gideon, Mando is doing what he does best — being the skilled bounty hunter that he is. However, he is struggling to use the Dark Saber that he won in combat. Mando has absolutely no control over the blade that had a 1000-year-old forged Beskar hilt. To make matters worse, when the Mandalorian reveals that he has actually removed his helmet to the Armorer, she disavows him as a Mandalorian. A disgruntled Mando later heads to Tatooine to meet with Peli Motto who offers him a replacement for a Razor Crest.
