‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Recap Episode 6: Finale and Cameo Explained

After the heroes escaped Vader’s attack on Jabiim, Obi wan Kenobi‘s finale found the Rebels racing against time, with the Empire on their trail and shields dwindling.

Realizing this, Obi-Wan decides to give everyone some time for repairs, facing Vader again, even if it could lead to his own death. Hugging Leia goodbye, Kenobi gives the young princess Tala the holster (empty, sorry!) and promises her that he will return.

On Tatooine, Owen and Beru receive a warning from a friend who has been interrogated by Reva that she is heading their way. Owen warns Luke to stay put and hide, as the Tuskens are invading farms in the area again. But if something goes wrong, he needs to run.

Obi-Wan tries to communicate with Qui-Gon once more, saying he needs to face Anakin. Whether he dies or his former apprentice, it ends today. Roken is there to say goodbye to him, reminding the Clone Wars general that he doesn’t have to. But this is between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader, so there’s no going back.

The Grand Inquisitor observes an escape ship leaving the transport with one person on board, but asks Vader to continue chasing the rebels as this is his chance to eliminate them completely. Vader, however, is focused on Kenobi and orders his ship to be prepared. As Obi-Wan prepares for what he believes will be the final showdown – they will meet once more, in A new hope — he finds Lola in his pocket. Leia must have hidden the droid there as she hugged him. Smart girl.

Following Obi-Wan’s ship to a barren moon, Vader once again comes face to face with his former master. Obi-Wan pulls out his blue lightsaber and says the same thing he said to Anakin just before his battle on Mustafar at the end of Revenge of the Sith: “I will do what I must.”

“Then you will to die”, replies Vader. They clash again.

At the same time, Reva arrives at Owen’s farm looking for Luke. A prepared and positioned Owen and Beru fire blasters, which she dodges, her usually neat braids now loose and slightly disheveled after being unceremoniously dumped by Vader. Luke runs away, and the former Inquisitor chases the boy to the dunes.

Back on the moon, Vader notes that Obi-Wan’s strength has returned, but “the weakness still remains”. The Sith Lord then uses the Force to bury Obi-Wan under some stones he hurled, saying, “Did you really think you could defeat me? You have failedteacher.”

Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen in Obi-Wan KenobiBut Vader didn’t kill his former master with the cave-in. Instead, Obi-Wan uses the Force to stop the rocks from crushing him. Fueled by memories of Luke and Leia, he repels them and then catches up to Vader. Your lightsaber battle continues.

Obi-Wan fights with everything he has and eventually cuts Vader’s helmet off with his lightsaber. The move weakens Vader, who runs out of air with half his face exposed. It is then that Kenobi sees his padawan’s face for the first time in years. “Anakin,” he calls.

Through his damaged vocoder – we hear Hayden Christensen’s distorted voice – Vader tells his former master that “Anakin is gone. I am what remains.” Obi Wan tells him he’s sorry for what happened in the past, but Vader dismisses it.

“I am not your failure. You didn’t kill Anakin Skywalker… I did,” he notes, before vowing to destroy Obi-Wan in kind. Realizing that your friend really It is dead, Kenobi says to the broken man before him, “Farewell, Darth”, and leaves. Through an enraged voice, a weakened Vader calls out for “Obi-Wan!” and falls to his knees, bracing himself against the rocks.

Obi-Wan senses Luke in danger and runs after the boy in his dropship. On Tatooine, Luke has fallen, after being forced off a rocky ledge by Reva, and is knocked unconscious. When Reva approaches him for the kill, she finds herself at his age, and memories of Anakin killing pups in the Jedi temple flash back. With her lightsaber raised, she now finds herself in Anakin’s position.

Obi-Wan lands on Owen’s farm and sees Owen and Beru calling for Luke, and prepares to search the dunes for him. But Reva appears in the distance, returning with the unconscious boy in her arms. She reports to Obi-Wan that she failed to eliminate Vader’s offspring and as such failed her dead friends. Obi-Wan doesn’t see it that way, insisting she honored them and gave them peace. When Reva asks if she has become Darth Vader, Obi-Wan says no, she chose not to. And who she is now is entirely up to her. Reva places her Inquisitor lightsaber in the sand, and Obi-Wan declares them both free.

On Mustafar, Vader speaks to Darth Sidious through a hologram. Sidious notes that Lord Vader looks agitated and wonders if his former master’s thoughts have left him weakened. Vader insists that Kenobi now means anything, and he only serves his new master. Tip the “Imperial March” as Vader sits on his lonely throne.

Back in Alderaan, Leia dons a modification: Tala’s holster. Both Queen Breha and Bail Organa love the new look, and Leia is ready to become a leader – with a few changes, of course. All three are greeted by an arriving Obi-Wan, who offers his help to the Organas should they ever need it again.

He also confesses to Leia about not knowing her parents. “Princess Leia Organa, you are wise, insightful, and kind. Those are qualities that came from your mother,” he tells her. “But you’re also passionate and fearless…outspoken. These are gifts from your father. Both were exceptional people who gave birth to an exceptional daughter.”

Kenobi wishes he could divulge more, but Leia says he doesn’t have to. When asked if she will ever see him again, Kenobi tells her that maybe if she needs help from a “tired old man”. However, no one must know, or it could endanger both of them. Leia hugs him and Obi-Wan offers these familiar parting words: “May the Force be with you.”

Liam Neeson in Obi-Wan KenobiAfter returning to Tatooine, Obi-Wan is wearing his old Jedi robes as he tidies up the cave he has lived in for a decade. Riding an eopie to the Larses’ farm, the former Jedi Master is invited by Owen to finally meet Luke. “Hello there…”, he says to the boy.

Shortly after, Obi-Wan rides through the desert and sees his master Qui-Gon Jinn as a Force ghost. (Hey Liam Neeson!) He was starting to think his old master would never come.

“I’ve always been here, Obi-Wan,” Qui-Gon tells him. “You just weren’t ready to see it.” But now that Kenobi It is ready, they have a way to go….
