This post contains SPOILERS for The Book of Boba Fett “Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger.”
The end of Episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett was a whirlwind of tension, destruction, and death. The surprise appearance of Cad Bane and his confrontation with Cobb Vanth ended in tragedy, and moments after, Garsa Fwip’s Sanctuary and many of the patrons inside it may have fallen prey to a deadly Pyke attack. But like Max Rebo, Garsa may have survived.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Beals hinted that Garsa still being alive could be possible. “You’d have to talk to Dave [Filoni] and Jon [Favreau] about that… We know she’s a survivor, so who knows.”
Beals, a long-time Star Wars fan, was thrilled to join a galaxy far, far away and grateful for her time spent in the universe despite its untimely, presumed end.
“I would have loved to go on and on, but there is the moment of acceptance in that this is the story,” she said. “I feel very fortunate to have stepped, for even a brief amount of time, into the Star Wars universe.”
It would be a shame to see her character gone for good. But Filoni, who directed “From the Desert Comes a Stranger,” has a track record of holding true to the “no one’s ever really gone” Star Wars trope. He famously brought Ahsoka Tano back from the dead in Star Wars: Rebels after leaving her fate assumed for almost two seasons. And in that case, the character had actually died, saved only by the musical powers of the Force.
Though it’s not clear exactly the role Garsa would play in future episodes of The Book of Boba Fett, we could very easily see her again sooner rather than later. It’s the same across most storytelling: If you don’t see a body, there’s no guarantee they’re actually dead.
The Book of Boba Fett is streaming now exclusively on Disney+.
