Did The Book Of Boba Fett Really Just Kill Off This Iconic Character?

Last week’s Book of Boba Fett episode brought back an iconic character from The Clone Wars series, but the finale seems to have already killed them off. Can it really be true?

Series creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni really were pressing the buttons of all Star Wars fans last week when they introduced live action Cad Bane for the first time. Bane was a fan favourite character in The Clone Wars series, often seen carrying out tasks for Jabba the Hutt. He regularly featured with his own episode arcs, and even interacted with the young Boba Fett from time to time.

Bane appeared in episode 6 of the new Boba Fett show, appearing to be working for the Pyke Syndicate to keep the spice trade running. After putting Cobb Vance out for the count, it seemed like he had the upper hand in this week’s final showdown. He was even able to put a Rancor out of action with his trusty wrist action flamethrower.

However, even when he had Boba Fett completely on his back, Fett was able to turn things around. Using the skills he picked up from the Tusken Raiders, Fett bested Bane before plunging the Gaderffii directly into his chest. The camera slowly zooms out from Bane with a small LED light blinking on his armour. So, is that the last we’ll see of Cad Bane in live action Star Wars?

Will we see Cad Bane again after The Book of Boba Fett?

The show certainly wants us to believe that this is the last we’ll see of Cad Bane. On the one hand, it makes sense that this was intended to be his last hurrah. The bounty hunter is especially old at this point, having interacted with Boba Fett when he was just a youngling. Fett even makes reference to Bane’s old age in the episode. Surely the old gaffer can’t keep up his tricks for much longer?

However, it still feels like there are some loose ends to tie up for the Cad Bane character. Before The Book of Boba Fett, we last saw Bane abandoned after a tense fight with Fennec Shand. That rivalry was never really settled with the two characters barely getting any interaction in the Boba Fett show. I’d personally love to see both characters settle their score, especially if it’s going to be in live action.

Do you think that Disney will bring back Cad Bane for another round? Let us know across our social channels.
