Reva arrives on Tatooine to find Luke, while Darth Vader and the Empire pursue the Path network. Kenobi eventually decides to confront Vader alone on a nearby planet while the Path safely escapes. After regaining his full connection to the Force, Kenobi incapacitates Vader. Realising Anakin has completely embraced his identity as Darth Vader, a saddened Kenobi leaves. After arriving at Luke’s home, Reva is confronted by Owen and Beru. She subdues them and pursues Luke into the desert. After remembering Anakin’s massacre of the Jedi Temple, she decides to return Luke to his family. Kenobi congratulates her for overcoming her trauma and liberating herself from the Dark Side. On Mustafar, a healed Vader abandons his search for Kenobi after his master, Emperor Palpatine, questions his motives and loyalty. Back on Alderaan, Leia finds new resolve in her duties as a princess. Kenobi visits them and affirms that he will help the Organas when needed. Returning to Tatooine, he resolves his conflict with Owen by agreeing to let Luke have a normal life.
