The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 6 Finally Confirms What Happened To Yoda's Lightsaber

We thought "The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 5 couldn't be topped, and then Dave Filoni rocked up in the director's chair, rebel that he is, and delivered an absolute banger of a sixth episode. Bringing characters in from all corners of the "Star Wars" universe (including one making his live-action debut), Chapter 6, "From A Desert Comes A Stranger," also featured a face fans were very pleased to see: the frog-munching Jedi-in-training Grogu. The lovable "little friend" from "The Mandalorian" who broke hearts and ship levers in that other "Star Wars" spin-off was doing fine under Luke Skywalker's watchful (CG)eye, who is now deep in Jedi training with the pointy-eared child.

Understandably, there's a lot of pressure on the not-so-youngling to follow the ancient order left in the hands of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), particularly given Grogu's connection to a former Master Jedi. The green fella follows in the footsteps of the Yoda, who, while not necessarily the liveliest teacher during his time in the original trilogy, was a spritely hundred-year-old hero during the Clone Wars. The difference, of course, was that he was far more swift with a lightsaber at the time, but where did his coveted weapon end up? Well, as the cliffhanger revealed, right where it was meant to be...maybe.

Luke has Yoda's lightsaber and soon, it might be Grogu's

In the closing moments of "The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 6, "From The Desert Comes A Stranger, " Grogu battles with being apart from the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal), which Luke senses. Knowing that the love for his old friend may affect the youngling learning the ways of the Force, the Jedi gives his potential Padawan a choice, which comes with two gifts that could change his path forever. It turns out that Luke has been in possession of Yoda's weapon — seemingly since his passing in "Return of the Jedi" – and offers it up to his student to continue his training. He could accept or take a different route and don the tiny Beskar chainmail armor left by Mando.

Naturally, with a choice as big as this, the episode cuts to black before we see Grogu make his choice. Even so, it confirms that Luke still has the most important item left behind from his former master that could find a new owner. Whether his new student draws the laser sword and embraces the ways of the Force has yet to be revealed. We'll have to wait until next week's "The Book of Boba Fett" to find out when it returns on Disney+.
