Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi (2020): S01E05


Introduction

Obi-Wan Kenobi is an American television miniseries created for the streaming service Disney+.

It is part of the Star Wars franchise and stars Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, reprising his role from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Set ten years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005), the series follows Kenobi as he sets out to rescue the kidnapped Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) from the Galactic Empire, leading to a confrontation with his former apprentice, Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen).

Outline

Vader reflects on lightsaber training he had with Kenobi prior to the Clone Wars as he tracks the Path network to Jabiim. Vader promotes Reva to Grand Inquisitor, who leads a siege on the Path facility, deactivating its escape doors. To stall for time, Kenobi speaks with Reva and deduces that she knows Vader’s true identity from witnessing his massacre at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when she was a Youngling. She reveals she wanted to gain Vader’s favour to kill him for revenge. The facility is then breached, with Tala sacrificing herself to save Kenobi. Realising they cannot win, Kenobi surrenders and is taken to Reva. He convinces Reva to kill Vader when she delivers Kenobi. Meanwhile, Leia opens the facility doors after removing Lola’s tracker, allowing the Path to escape as Vader arrives at the docking bay. Reva uses this opportunity to try to kill Vader but is quickly overpowered after a brief duel and stabbed. She is left for dead as the original Grand Inquisitor arrives to reaffirm his status. As the Path network escapes, Reva finds Bail Organa’s message on Kenobi’s transmitter, revealing Luke’s location on Tatooine.
