The Book of Boba Fett Episode 3 Easter Eggs & Breakdown
A B'omarr monk is seen outside of the palace.
8D8 explains to Boba and Fennec what happened after Jabba died. Under Bib Fortuna, the city was divided into three sections and these three groups took control : The Trandoshans, The Aqualish, and The Klatooinians. The latter was first seen in the Return of the Jedi, when two of that species, Barada and Kithaba died during Han Solo's rescue.
The droid also reveals that Bib was paying off Mayor Mok Shaiz.
Lortha Peel, played by Stephen Root, asks Boba to rid the streets of Mos Espa of a gang that is harassing him and stealing his water supply.
Fett and Fennec find this gang and confront them. They admit they stole the water because Peel charged them a month's wages for a week's supply. Boba offers them work and uses the slang Dank. This is part of the phrase “Dank farrik“ which has been used several times throughout The Mandalorian. It is believed to be used when the person is frustrated and could also be something of a curse word.
Boba also pays what he thinks the water is worth. Peel is angry and the gang of humans with droid parts leaves to go work for Boba.
In the Bacta Tank, Boba has a flashback to his time on Kamino, watching his father leave on the Slave 1. Then he is back with the Tuskens, riding a Bantha to Mos Eisley. He is there to speak with the Pyke Syndicate.
As he rides through the town, Boba sees Storm Trooper helmets on stakes. This was also seen in The Mandalorian.
Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris) and her pit droids can be seen in the background during this same shot.
The Pyke Boss mentions speaking to his superiors on Oba Diah. This is the home planet of the Pykes. They refuse to pay protection money to the Tuskens because they already pay the Kintan Striders. Kintans the species are used as a model for Dejarik pieces.
Phil LaMarr is the voice of the Pyke Boss. LaMarr has voiced many characters in the Star Wars universe including Bail Organa.
However this is referring to the planet Kintan and it is the Nikto who makes up the Biker Gang. They first appeared during Return of the Jedi. When Boba returns to the Tusken camp he finds it has been attacked and burned down by the Nikto. He burns the dead and sets out for revenge.
Black Krrsantan interrupts Boba's Bacta Tank session and attempts to kill Boba. The humans he employed earlier try to help, but the Wookie is powerful. Fennec is able to trap him in the Rancor Pit.
The Hutt twins arrive with a gift, to apologize for sending Black Krrsantan to kill Boba. The gift is a Rancor who is being watched over by Danny Trejo. They also inform Boba that the Mayor has lied to them both and the territory has been promised to another Syndicate. The twins also leave Krrsantan behind as a tribute to Fett. Boba frees Krrsantan.
In the pit, Boba is told that Rancors are emotionally complex creatures, and this one ins depressed. The rancor is only a calf and will imprint on the first human it sees. This isn't the first time we have seen Rancors as more than fighters. In The Bad Batch, Omega bonds with a Rancor they are sent to recover for Jabba the Hutt.
They also mention the Witches of Dathomir and how they used to ride the Rancors.
Boba and Fennec leave to confront the Mayor about what the Hutt Twins told them. The Mayor evades them and Fennec uses the curse Dank Farrik. The Majordomo escapes and is chased by the human speeder bike gang.
A Protocol Droid is seen during the chase. It even says Oh My like C3-PO however it is not the famous droid.
They stop the Majordomo and he tells them the Mayor is now working for the Pykes.
The Pykes have arrived and are preparing for war with Fett and his crew.
