Obi-Wan Kenobi: Part V

It is safe to say that Part V makes up for Part IV almost immediately. We flashback to to around the timeline of Episode 2: Attack of the Clones and witness Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) training Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) in lightsabre combat. We will flip back to this lesson through the episode, but the main point is Anakin is always too aggressive to get what he wants so he fails.

Back in the current timeline, Reva Sevander (Moses Ingram) is promoted by Darth Vader to the role of Grand Inquisitor as the Empire arrives Jabiim after they tracked them back to that location. The Empire use the bug in Lola to make her deactivate the door and trapping everyone in the facility.

Reva lands with a small army and confront Kenobi. We then are treated to some flashbacks that finally show Anakin butchering some younglings from when he attacked the Jedi Temple after Order 66. Anakin then learns Reva’s true intentions just as the facility is breached. Shocks and betrayals unfold as tension builds between Kenobi and Vader!

Verdict: 8/10. An exciting action packed episode that delivers something that we should have seen seventeen years ago in Revenge of the Sith. One of the biggest faults of the original Star Wars and the prequels is that you never actually saw Vader or other villains do anything that bad. Since Rogue One we have started to see villains do bad things. This plays well through this episode as well as hints at Kenobi’s PTSD? A great episode that helps build towards the finale.
