The Mandalorian Character You Missed In The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 3

Contains minor spoilers for "The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 3

"The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 3 gives fans yet another glimpse into the story of how the bounty hunter first came into power in the crime-ridden city of Mos Espa. Prior to this chapter, we learned that Fett (Temuera Morrison) had been captured by the Tusken Raiders following his escape from the Sarlacc Pit. Like so many of his misadventures, though, he managed to earn his freedom, as well as the respect of the tribe, through a series of heroics. In this chapter, our flashback sees Fett traveling to Mos Eisley to collect "protection payment" for the Tuskens Raiders, trying to establish the Tuskens as a genuine force amongst the crime lords of Tatooine.

The famous Mos Eisley has changed somewhat in the years following the Empire's downfall. Most noticeably, we can see that the residents have started placing Stormtrooper helmets on spikes outside of the city, sending a very clear message to any Empire sympathizers hoping to set up shop within their walls. We get a short glimpse of these helmets as Fett rides past on a bantha, though perhaps the more interesting aspect of this scene is the woman walking behind the helmets. This character is someone fans will recognize as a major player from "The Mandalorian."

You can spot Peli Motto when Boba Fett enters Mos Eisley

As Boba Fett rides past the display of Stormtrooper heads, the camera turns to follow a short, brown-haired woman followed by three pit droids walking down the street and paying absolutely no mind to the bounty hunter or his steed. Take a closer look and you'll see that this woman bears a striking resemblance to Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), who manages the hanger that Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) landed at in Season 1 of "The Mandalorian." Motto agreed to fix up the Razor Crest for Djarin, and bonded with Grogu while the bounty hunter went out in search of payment. She was later captured alongside Grogu and rescued by Djarin, after which the two became friends in earnest.

The next time they met, Motto even allowed Djarin to borrow her speeder bike to travel to the town of Mos Pelgo. It's there that Djarin discovered that the mayor was wearing Boba Fett's armor. It's a neat "full circle" moment that teases the eventual connection between Motto and the famous bounty hunter, and it's also funny to see Motto's three droids marching stoically behind her like a trio of small bodyguards. In any case, it's a fun cameo that fans of both shows should keep an eye out for the next time they give the chapter a watch.
