The Mandalorian brought his unique style of parenting to The Book of Boba Fett and at this point someone with some authority should be told.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Episode 7 of Boba Fett’s book “Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor,” streaming now on Disney+.
Both The Mandalorian and Boba Fett’s Book showed New Republic X-wings patrolling the corridors of space for faulty transponder beacons, buzzing commercial ships, and checking for expired or fraudulent title tabs. The epic battles of yesteryear, when the fate of the galaxy was determined by suicide bombers hurtling down narrow trenches against the backdrop of screaming TIEs and coughing cannons, have been replaced by the ticketing of unregistered frigates and the filing of any passes for paperwork along the Outer Rim. The bureaucracy is in full swing in all its painful banality, but there is one department that needs to be alerted quickly.
Din Djarin has always been a curious choice to care for a child of any age, but especially for one who straddles the developmental stages of infancy and toddlerhood, he seems perfectly unsuitable. During this impressionable time, a young person is shaped by their surroundings, the amount of love and attention they receive, and the opportunities to expand their cerebral horizons while being in nurturing and safe environments. The Mandalorian is deficient in his role to such an astonishing degree that anything that passes for social worker interventions must be rounded up immediately to keep Grogu’s mental and physical health intact.
Grogu had an arduous life. Its 50 years of babydom have been marked by massacres, kidnappings, ransoms, bounties, sieges, giant spiders and black soldier droids and this list is far from exhaustive. Time and again, Din Djarin placed the youth in the metaphorical crosshairs of a universe that would harm him, but this could mostly be forgiven since his primary mission during this time was to find Grogu a home that would protect him from those who would. harvest its cellular makeup for their own nefarious purposes. Everything changed when Grogu came back into her life. True, Grogu has chosen this path, but it has been made clear many times that his judgment is not to be trusted.
Luke was an impatient tutor for his soon-to-be first student, abandoning his teaching at the first sign of resistance or muted expressions of affection. Instead of providing him with a stable and solid set of meditative practices that require thought, responsibility and discipline, he sent him across the galaxy all alone in his X-wing and trusted someone on the planet Tattooine who would talk. commonly the astromech or the cooing of babies. . Luke not only let him down as a teacher, he also couldn’t handle a parental transfer responsibly. Din Djarin clearly wasn’t expecting Grogu, so the Jedi Master never contacted him to let him know that Yoda’s planetary parents had been surreptitiously exiled. Luke had no way of even knowing if The Mandalorian was on Tattooine in the first place and gave viewers their first taste of the absenteeism that will forever haunt his legacy for decades to come.
Why teach when you can simply send an orphan to a fragmentary planet with no address or adult guardian? Grogu is actively failed by the system. He’s a child who’s been left behind, and the new board seems more concerned with suspicious hotrods or vague Imperial associations than the welfare of the galaxy’s future, represented by its most vulnerable, the children. As is often the case, Grogu proved to be quite resilient under the circumstances. The problem however is the fact that he shouldn’t have to be and there doesn’t seem to be any priorities set to ensure he receives monitoring, checkups, dietary supplements or best practice criteria.
Din Djarin’s former transport was an ST-70 assault ship which also served as a mobile home. It had a large cargo hold that could store at least a handful of humanoids suspended in carbonite, and a weapons locker that could be used as a makeshift prison or nursery in a pinch. It was far from an ideal accommodation situation for a young child but there were at least two additional seats in the cockpit which were fitted with restraints. Djarin could carry frozen bounties while keeping a visor slot in his charge and, if necessary, move the child to a relatively quiet place where he could sleep lying down and in peace. Barring extremely ominous associations and scoundrels or frequent laser battles, it was a bottom-of-the-barrel option that could appease a visiting agent from the state.
However, like many single parents who find themselves at a crossroads of empty nests, Djarin was convinced to buy a custom single-seat speedster for professional space racing. This ship has no living quarters, no cargo hold of any kind, and no suitable place for Grogu to sit, let alone sleep or eat. The N-1 starfighter is sleek, sexy, and totally inappropriate. It doesn’t even provide the bounty hunter with the space to carry bounties. Much worse, however, are the accommodations he has arranged for Grogu since their fateful reunion. Despite the many times the public has seen astromechs burn and howl from their cursed droid ports, Djarin thinks it’s a perfectly fitting place for Grogu to bask in seclusion.
Forget the fact that children benefit from exposure to facial expressions or the petty matter of proximity to heavy ammo and cursed edged weapons, N-1 is no place for a child. Djarin is so concerned with being the fun dad that he engages the ship’s maximum thrust at the peak tapping request of a baby who doesn’t know any better and isn’t at all attached to anything, just up there taking the Gs. Neither the Mandolorian nor Luke have proven trustworthy to care for the youngster and the government seems more concerned with traffic violations than child protection, but enough is enough and someone somewhere must send a signal to the bureaucracy of abandoned bioforms: Yavin region STAT .
To see Mando getting extremely reckless with raising his child, Season 1 of Boba Fett’s book is now streaming on Disney+.
