Warning: Major spoilers ahead for The Book of Boba Fett’s 6th episode “From The Desert Comes A Stranger”

The stakes are higher than ever in The Book of Boba Fett as numerous characters perished in this week’s episode. While some of the deaths have yet to be confirmed, the explosion at the Sanctuary and the return of Cad Bane meant a violent end for many familiar faces.

Fans already had to deal with the sudden and heartbreaking massacre of the Tusken tribe that took Boba Fett in. Episode 6 only twists the knife further by killing characters introduced in this series and fan-favorites who have been around long before the series began.

These are the named and familiar characters who died or seem to have come close to dying in this week’s episode.

Deputy Scott

Deputy Scott–who is assisting Cobb Vanth with law enforcement in Freetown–immediately proves to be overzealous when he gives Din Djarin a hard time for parking too close to Freetown. His overzealous continues when he’s unable to play it cool in front of Cad Bane.

Cad Bane is able to shoot Cobb Vanth and then shoots Deputy Scott multiple times before either one of them is able to get a single shot off. Deputy Scott appears to be dead given that he was shot numerous times and the blaster bolts left burning holes in his chest.

Cobb Vanth

Cad Bane only shoots Cobb Vanth once, but it’s enough to send the Marshal of Freetown crumpling into the sand. The Freetown citizens rushing to Cobb Vanth and trying to get him help teases that he might not be gone. Yet, this is Cad Bane we’re talking about.

Cad Bane is an experienced and deadly bounty hunter who has no remorse and can easily take down a target in one shot. Unfortunately, there is a good chance that Cobb Vanth is dead and it his death that will galvanize the Freetown citizens into fighting alongside Boba Fett against Cad Bane and the Pykes.

Garsa Fwip

Garsa Fwip appears to die when the Pykes blow up the Sanctuary. She sees the Pykes enter her establishment, leave the camtono, and then leave. Her watchful eye and somber expression makes it seem like she knows what is happening and that the camtono left behind is filled with explosives, but it all happens too fast for her to stop it.

It is a shame to lose her character as Jennifer Beals has absolutely nailed the role. There was speculation that Garsa Fwip couldn’t be fully trusted or that she was the show’s real villain, but now it seems like she was just a gracious and business-savvy individual just doing her best to ensure that her “slice of paradise” would thrive.

Since the Sanctuary was part of Boba’s territory and he profited from it, the Pykes’ attack on the Sanctuary is an attack on Boba.


Big Brother legend Dr. Will Kirby had a cameo in earlier episodes and returned in this episode as well. According to IMDb and as confirmed by Kirby, his character is named Karales the Bounty Hunter.

Karales is most prominently seen in episodes 4 and 6, but he can also be seen behind Boba Fett and Fennec Shand for a second in the Sanctuary in episode 2. Kirby shared with us that the main scene he was in from episode 2 was cut.

In the latest episode, the retired bounty hunter continued to enjoy the company and many amenities of the Sanctuary. Unfortunately, Karales is still inside the Sanctuary when it explodes, meaning that his retirement has come to a sudden and fiery end.

This is the end of Karales in The Book of Boba Fett, but he has the potential to appear in many future Star Wars stories given his bounty hunting profession.

Max Rebo?

The Book of Boba Fett premiere revealed that Max Rebo survived Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge explosion in Return of the Jedi and he moved on to playing music for Garsa Fwip at the Sanctuary.

Episode 6 marks the first scene at the Sanctuary that does not show Max Rebo playing music. Hopefully, this means he had the night off and yet again avoided dying in a gig that literally went up in flames.

In fact, Max’s absence is probably a sign that everyone in the Sanctuary is dead as the creators probably didn’t want to kill the fan favorite so soon after his return.
