Following The Book of Boba Fett’s episode 5, “The Return of the Mandalorian”, Luke Skywalker is rumored to appear in an upcoming episode of the series. Episode 4 of The Book of Boba Fett ended with a musical cue familiar to fans of Disney+’s The Mandalorian. While many assumed Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) would appear in episode 5—which was directed by The Mandalorian vet Bryce Dallas Howard—very few expected its entire runtime would focus on catching up with the character.

The last audiences saw of Din Djarin at the end of The Mandalorian season 2, he defeated Moff Gideon, laid claim to the Darksaber, and sent Grogu off with Luke Skywalker to learn the ways of the Force. Chapter 5 of The Book of Boba Fett picks up with Din sometime after the events of season 2; collecting a bounty, finding the remaining members of Mandalorian tribe, forging armor for Grogu, and wielding the Darksaber before heading to Tatooine to acquire an N-1 starfighter from Peli Motto. At the end of the episode, Fennec Shand shows up to recruit Din Djarin into Fett’s battle with the Pyke Syndicate. Din agrees to help but not before visiting a little friend first.
