I got up at 6:00 am to watch it when the episode dropped and I knew there had to be an extra scene the moment the credits started rolling with SEVEN MINUTES TO GO. I'm very excited for what's to come, but I find it somewhat unlikely that The Book of Boba Fett would be Mando season 3 as they have yet to grant titles to the pre-existing seasons, and it seems rather odd to do so at such a late time. I think, and hope, that TBoBF will be Boba's own spin-off, and that it was only omitted from the announcements on the 10th because they wanted to surprise all of us with the extra scene. I don't want it to be Mando 3 because I think they'd probably make Boba the villain of the season then. That would be catastrophic since Din is protected by plot armor, so Boba would have to lose to him, and that's simply not plausible. We all know that, plot armor aside, our Boba would destroy Din easily, but that won't be the case if they make Boba a bad guy. I'd also love the amount of screen time Boba would get if he had his own show, and the exposure to other lovable bounty hunters like Dengar that we'd most likely receive. It would also be really nice to see the relationship, whatever that might be, further developed between Boba Fett and Fennec Shand. Right now it looks like she's taken up a Chewbacca-like role (life-debt sidekick), but I think they're just a little more than that, or they have the potential to be (and I'm not saying that that's a necessarily romantic relationship, but instead, perhaps, something more similar to Boba's friendship with Goran Beviin in Legends). Boba deserves happiness (and he deserves to not have stupid little moments like Koska somehow getting the better of him in the bar, but I digress), but this Ruler of Tatooine business has the potential to be one of the greatest story arcs in the history of Star Wars. I just hope they don't make the same mistakes twice, and waste two amazing characters like Fennec and Boba.
Additionally, it must not be forgotten that Boba is now re-cannonized as Mandalorian by birth, though he has, for now, rejected his birthright. This is very similar to his Legends story, but they may be replacing him accepting his role as Manda'lor (Legends), with him instead choosing to bring order to Tatooine as its greatest ruler yet. He shall finally get the recognition we have always known he deserves!
