'The Book of Boba Fett' Ending Explained: Did the Bounty Hunter Defeat the Pykes?

The Book of Boba Fett came to an end on Wednesday, February 9 with an explosive finale full of tense battles, old foes and even some Rancor-riding.

Titled "In The Name of Honor," the action-packed episode saw Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) finally go up against the Pyke Syndicate with his motley crew of fighters, including Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal).

Did Boba Fett Defeat the Pyke Syndicate?

With most of his team scattered around town, Boba Fett, Fennec, and Din Djarin seem to be the only ones able to go up against the Pyke Syndicate at first because Fett's fighters are caught up in battles with the henchmen of the leaders who chose to betray the bounty hunter.

Cad Bane (Corey Burton) tries to smoke out the bounty hunter, and the pair have a tense stand-off that is only called off after Fennec tells Fett to wait until the right moment comes once the battle truly begins.

Fennec heads out to help the others while Boba Fett and the Mandalorian fight off the Pyke goons in Mos Eisley, eventually getting help from Fett's crew and the residents of Freetown, who want justice for the death of Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant).

Thanks to their help and the return of Krrsantan (Carey Jones) and Boba Fett's gang of cyborgs, the group are able to put up a good fight, that is until the Pyke Syndicate bring out the big guns—literally.

Several droids with shields go up against the crew and they have to do all they can to stay alive, with Boba Fett going so far as to ride his Rancor into battle and the Mandalorian using his darksaber to defeat the robots.

Cad Bane returns to the battle and he and the bounty hunter go head-to-head. Boba Fett seems to be at a disadvantage until he uses the gaffi stick he was given by the Tuskens to kill his opponent.

While this is going on in Mos Eisley, Fennec heads out to the Pyke Syndicate's base camp. He not only kills their leader, but all the leaders who betrayed Boba Fett in one fell swoop, thus winning the war and getting revenge for the Tusken massacre on his behalf.

Elsewhere in the episode, Grogu returns after his time with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) having chosen to reunite with Djarin rather than train to be a Jedi.

After a sweet reunion, and Grogu showing off his Jedi skills by stopping Boba Fett's raging Rancor from killing his father figure, the pair head off-planet and onto their next adventure (and The Mandalorian Season 3).

'The Book of Boba Fett' Post-Credit Scene Explained

At the end of the episode, Boba Fett remarks to Fennec how he can't heal his arm that was wounded in battle because his bacta tank is currently in use.

Following the credits, it is revealed who has been placed inside the bacta tank: Cobb Vanth.

The Marshall was shot down by Cad Bane in Episode 6, and everyone presumed he was dead following the stand-off.

However it's clear than Cobb somehow managed to pull through, and he is now healing inside the bacta tank.

On top of that, Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner's mod artist, known as the Modifier, was seen standing above him and getting his tools ready.

This suggests that the Modifier will help save Cobb's life like he did with Fennec earlier in the season, likely using cybernetics to keep him alive in the same way he did with her.

The Book of Boba Fett is available to watch in full on Disney+ now.
