Taking over a crime syndicate isn't easy. You can watch The Book of Boba Fett episode 2 right now, so you can see the infamous bounty hunter continue his attempt to clamp down on Jabba the Hutt's territory. Assassin and enforcer Fennec Shand remains at his side to aid him in ruling with respect, not fear.

The Book of Boba Fett episode 2 date and time and more

Release time and date: 3 a.m. ET on Wednesday, January 5
Cast: Temuera Morrison, Ming-Na Wen
Showrunners: Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez,
Total episodes: 7

The Book of Boba Fett episode 2 follows up on the action from the premiere. In the present day, Boba is recovering from an attack from a group of assassins. Fennec chased after two of them and managed to capture one. The question is: Who sent them? Perhaps it's the mayor, but it could be any number of foes who don't like the fact that Boba moved in on Jabba and Bib Fortuna's old territory.

Meanwhile, in the past, Boba earned the respect of the leader of the Tusken Raiders after dispatching a six-limbed sand monster (and letting his young jailor take the credit). But we know that Boba still has a long road ahead of him before getting his armor back from The Mandalorian. 

Here's everything you need to know about watching The Book of Boba Fett episode 2 (and since it was such a good episode, we're more than excited for the Book of Boba Fett episode 3).
