Right now the answer is: Yes, Cad Bane is dead – unless he’s not. While this may be frustrating for Star Wars fans, Season 1 of The Book of Boba Fett ends with a stark implication that the fan-favorite Clone Wars character has met his fate at the hands of Temuera Morrison’s reformed bounty hunter.
Not surprisingly, Cad Bane returned in the finale of The Book of Boba Fett and got a chance to reunite with Boba Fett. The two bounty hunters subsequently crossed paths twice, with the second meeting proving to be much more exciting.
After his fateful duel with Boba Fett at the end of The Book of Boba Fett Episode 7, many might assume that Cad Bane was killed.
Based on his appearances in the movies and canon non-movie footage, Boba Fett doesn’t quite surpass Cad Bane’s proven skills, and The Book of Boba Fett shows that Fett would have been killed off by Bane if it wasn’t for that his blaster-proof Beskar armor would be.
However, their plans were foiled when it was revealed that Kenobi had infiltrated their ranks under the guise of bounty hunter Rako Hardeen and Bane was arrested along with the rest of the group. Bane was still active during the early reign of the Galactic Empire.
Cad Bane and The Mandalorian Season 3
As long as the blue-skinned bounty hunter doesn’t meet his maker in the finale of Boba Fett, he’ll make a perfect villain in the next season of The Mandalorian.
Mando will be skilled enough to save Mandalore, and Grogu will have the true talent and training of a Jedi. When the MandoVerse is over, the Sequel trilogy is over, and it’s Rey Palpatine’s turn to do what Luke should have done, Grogu will be almost 80 years old.
After Cad Bane was arrested again for kidnapping Palpatine, we don’t see him again. However, he is mentioned by one of the Whills. I think that the newly self-proclaimed Emperor Palpatine released him to do his bounty hunting.
Ahsoka and Cad Bane both made their debut in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which ran for seven seasons. What is that? It’s doubtful that Ahsoka will appear again in the final episode of The Book of Boba Fett, but Cad Bane is almost guaranteed to announce his presence.
Cad Bane was born 62 VBY meaning he is 62 years old as of the events of A New Hope. So we just add 9 to that (ABY is after the Battle of Yavin, BBY is before) and that means Cad Bane in The Book of Boba Fett is about 71 years old. p>
Cad Bane was hired to deliver Omega to Lama Su while Nala Se hired Fennec to keep Omega away from Lama Su. Not only did Fennec win the fight against Cad Bane in this episode, she humiliated Cad Bane by making him lose his bounty (Omega) and the credits owed to him, and she sabotaged his ship ..p>
Cad is also a Duros, a species that isn’t very fast or agile, but Cad Bane always wins because of his intelligence and his amazing plans, so he doesn’t win by strength but by intelligence , which makes me think he’d win in a bounty job, but in a 1v1 fight against Mando he’s doomed.
After being given an impossible choice by Luke Skywalker in Boba Fett Episode 6, Grogu decides to leave Yoda’s lightsaber behind and rejoin his surrogate father, Mando (aka Din Djarin).
While some of the aborted arcs of The Clone Wars were completed in Season 7, Cad Bane/Boba Fett’s storyline was not one of them.
Actually, the tubes on Cad Bane’s face are far from a costume choice – they are actually cybernetic breathing tubes. These technological advances help individuals survive extreme environments and help them breathe in alien atmospheres like outer space.
Some might think this duel isn’t canon, but if we look at the character models for Cad Bane during The Bad Batch, we can see that Bane has a cybernetic stain in the back of his mind. The cybernetic patch matches the wounds Bane would have received if the scene were canon.
