Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6 Review.

Of all the cameos from all the characters from all the iterations of Star Wars that show up in Obi-Wan Kenobi, the one I was hoping for the hardest isn’t even alive anymore.

Fortunately for us prequel fans—again, we’re out there!—being dead is no longer enough to keep a good Jedi down.

Yes, that’s Liam Neeson as the Force ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn, returned from the dead at long last to help guide his former student Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Based on the wide-open door on which this series ends, Obi-Wan may well need the help.

That big moment may overshadow much of what else happened in this final (?) episode. so let’s go over that nice and quick.

In order to save the refugees from the Jedi/Force-sensitive relocation program called the Path from the Darth Vader–helmed Star Destroyer that’s firing on them,

Obi-Wan jets off on his own and lures Vader into battle. Even buried under tons of rock and rubble, Obi-Wan is still a better fighter than Vader and gets the best of his former friend.

Meanwhile, former Third Sister Reva heads off to Tattooine to track down and kill Luke Skywalker, whose existence she learned of in the communiqué from Bail Organa to Obi-Wan that she found.

I’m not quite sure why—to get back at Obi-Wan for his failure to protect her as a kid, I suppose—but she can’t go through with it,

Returns the boy to his brave adoptive parents Owen and Beru Lars, both of whom risked their lives against the lightsaber-wielding ex-Inquisitor rather than let her seize Luke without a fight.
