Obi-Wan Kenobi Recap

After escaping from Daiyu, Obi-Wan Kenobi‘s third episode finds our hero sitting and grappling with the devastating news: His former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, is still alive.

Stowing away with Leia aboard the cargo ship, Obi-Wan again attempts to commune with Qui-Gon, but can’t stop replaying Anakin’s descent to the dark side in his head.

That is juxtaposed with scenes of Darth Vader being extracted and unplugged from his bacta tank, and being installed into his iconic suit and helmet.

James Earl Jones returns as the voice of Vader, as the Sith Lord receives an update on Obi-Wan’s whereabouts from Reva.

What’s more, she has pinned the slaying of the Grand Inquisitor — who is believed to be dead — on the former Jedi Master.

Vader gives her two options: prove herself and become the new Grand Inquisitor, or fail and die.

Meanwhile, Obi-Wan and Leia have landed on a mining system planet named Mapuzo.

Obi-Wan observes that the fields that used to be filled with families are now barren and overrun with stormtroopers.

He also has a brief vision of Anakin in his Jedi robes, though his onetime padawan isn’t really there.

When they reach the designated checkpoint provided by Haja, Obi-Wan immediately thinks he’s been lied to and now they’re stranded.

Leia insists they reach out for help and flags down a repulsor truck driven by an alien named Freck (voiced by Scrubs‘ Zach Braff), who offers the “father/daughter farmers from Tawl” a ride.

The transport also picks up several stormtroopers who are looking for the Jedi outlaw.

Obi-Wan nearly blows their cover when he calls Leia by her real name, quickly brushing it off as confusion because when he looks at her, he sees her mother. Which isn’t a total lie.

After the stormtroopers exit, Leia picks up on the fact that Obi-Wan knew her birth mother, Padme.

She in turn asks if he’s her real father, which he denies. Obi-Wan then reveals that he barely remembers his own childhood, but thinks he had a brother.
