Obi Wan Kenobi - Part 5 - Demoted by Double-Stabbing
Highlights:Since his former Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Rey struggled to do so in The Clone Wars finale and The Rise of Skywalker, respectively, Vader dragging down the ship with the Force appears to showcase his might (and mimics a sequence from the 2008 video game The Force Unleashed). When the ship is discovered to be empty, it seems less spectacular. In reality, Vader appears to be an idiot (don't tell him I said that).Reva is revealed to be a Jedi youngling who survived Order 66, when clone soldiers turned on their Jedi comrades. Anakin seemed to knife her as he invaded the Jedi Temple, and she pretended to be dead amid the remains of the other youngsters to avoid detection. That's really terrifying, and it's likely what caused the "upsetting" scene warning that precedes the program.The Grand Inquisitor is shown to have survived being skewered by Reva – which will come as no surprise to anybody who has watched the CGI animated series Rebels, given it is set after this and he is the major villain in season 1 – and he indicates that his thirst for vengeance helped him survive. He was probably also thrown in a bacta tank, which usually helps.Lowlights:Despite this, Obi-Wan sees an opportunity in Reva's quest and surrenders, offering her the opportunity to kill Vader while he is preoccupied. However, it's all a ruse to allow Leia, Obi-Wan, and the refugees an opportunity to flee.Obi-Wan notices a number of lightsaber hilts in a box at the Path base, but none of them appear to belong to anybody we know.Following a botched assassination attempt on Vader, a gravely injured Reva notices Obi-lost Wan's commlink and hears a garbled message from Leia's foster father, Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits), that includes "learned of the children," "Tatooine," "Owen," and "the kid."
