'Obi-Wan Kenobi' is here with episode 3, and a certain iconic villain finally means business.

Warning: the following article contains spoilers for episode 3 of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'

It's Part III time of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi', and Star Wars fans are flocking to Twitter, overwhelmed with emotions: finally, Hayden Christensen's Darth Vader has made a proper appearance.

The third episode has actually given us a full-scale duel between Obi-Wan and Vader, with the latter channeling the "You should have killed me when you had the chance" energy.

Many fans noted that they have never been this terrified of Darth Vader before. You bet – the scene where Vader throws Kenobi into the fire alone has given fans strong flashbacks to the battle on Mustafar in the prequel trilogy.

The way the fight between Kenobi and Vader resembles the Mustafar face-off, but in a twisted and painful way for Obi-Wan, has broken pretty much every Star Wars' fan's hearts. Back on Mustafar, Kenobi and Anakin engaged in a vicious fight, in which Obi-Wan was victorious, but had to witness his defeated Padawan burning in lava.

The scene hit people even stronger when they realized that this time, Kenobi was, in fact, escaping the confrontation desperately, clearly still unwilling to hurt Anakin.

'Obi-Wan Kenobi' premiered on Disney Plus on May 27, with the sixth and final episode due to hit screens on June 22.
