The Disney+ series just released its final episode, and it looks like the Jedi master got the perfect ending to his story. Or did he?
Obi-Wan's struggle to protect Leia and young Luke Skywalker finally comes to an end in the sixth episode, just released on Disney+. Having secured Leia's safe passage to Alderaan, Kenobi was finally able to confront Darth Vader without fearing for her life. The duel between the former friends took place on an uninhabited planet, and after a serious lightsaber bout, Kenobi was once again on top, seriously damaging Vader's chest unit. As a Jedi, Obi-Wan spared Vader's life, just to receive an unexpected and formidable omen – something bad is about to happen to Luke on Tatooine.
Yes, Inquisitor Reva did manage to get to the desert planet while trying to do Vader's bidding to kill Luke Skywalker. While she tracked down Owen Lars and the boy, Obi-Wan desperately tried to get to the distant planet in time. But it seemed too late – Reva had broken into Lars's house, and after battling Luke's defenders and winning, the Inquisitor set out on the boy's trail into the desert. Upon finally reaching his destination and meeting Lars near his compound, Kenobi was astonished to see Reva emerging from the desert with an unconscious Luke. It seems that the Dark Side had prevailed after all...
Except not really. As Reva admits to the Jedi, she could not bring herself to kill an innocent child and chose to betray her master by saving Luke's life. Now she is finally free from the clutches of evil and must reconcile with her Jedi upbringing in a more peaceful and harmless environment. After Reva threw away her lightsaber and Luke found himself safe with Owen Lars, it looks like Disney's signature happy ending has finally happened. After gifting Luke a toy ship, he was planning to give at the very beginning of the story, Kenobi heads out into the desert, where he finally meets his teacher Qui-Gon Jinn as a Force ghost. The late Jedi tells Obi-Wan that they have a lot of work ahead of them, foreshadowing the events of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy.
Since Reva's storyline gracefully concluded yet remained open for some next chapters, fans are very curious where her journey will take her next.
"I mean, now she has to face all the crimes that she’s committed plus where exactly is there a place for her? The Empire is still hunting Force sensitive people and she’s more than just sensitive; she’s powerful. I think that they’re going to come for her, eventually." – /Tiamat_fire_and_ice.
Overall, it seems that the 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' series managed to please fans with great action, captivating plot, and interesting character development, and despite some problems with the overall narrative, viewers will surely be glad if this series gets a second installment in the future.
