Obi-Wan Kenobi: Season Finale Explained

“Hi how Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) quotes his famous line “Revenge of the Sithin the final episode of his Disney+ show. “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Part VI has the daunting double task of following up on the intense Part V and setting the stage for the movie that started it all.

To accomplish this, he delivers the inevitable climactic battle from the start and spends a lot of time getting each piece on the chessboard to the places they need to be at the start of “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope“.

Instead of a large body count and constant high-octane action, “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Part VI is surprisingly full of happy endings. Leia Organa (Vivien Lyra Blair) returns home, discovers her fashion sense and agrees to keep her friendship with Obi-Wan a secret.

The remaining members of the Path evade the Imperial forces. Reva Savander’s (Moses Ingram) arc comes to a surprising conclusion, and even Obi-Wan’s difficult years as a desert hermit turn out to be considerably more enjoyable than you think.

Considering the rocky relationship between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen, voiced by James Earl Jones), it’s no surprise that a large portion of the finale is devoted to a massive encounter between the two.

AmericanPost.News reports that the former master and apprentice begin an epic lightsaber battle 15 minutes into the episode, and it gets more impressive from there.

Vader’s absurdly strong Force telekinesis is on full display, and while he doesn’t show it explicitly, the moment he finally reaches the high ground must be a pretty cathartic experience.

Obi-Wan Kenobi takes a little longer to get his Force engine working, but when he does, Vader finds out the hard way that he’s not the only Force user who can throw massive objects.

When Master Obi-Wan Kenobi finally manages to incapacitate Vader and open his helmet, the physical battle turns into a war of words. This may be the most damaging part of the duel for both parties, as Obi-Wan tearfully apologizes for Mustafar, while Vader denounces his former identity.

The Jedi receives the message. “Goodbye, Darth,” Obi-Wan utters sadly, making it clear that he now feels that his former apprentice is no more. Vader stands in the desert, vainly calling out the name of his opponent. Hey, not everyone can have a happy ending.

As a visual experience, the entire meeting is exciting. It finally shows the audience a bit of Christensen’s Vader face and, thanks to the broken mask, blends Anakin’s normal voice and Jones’s booming Darth Vader voice into a chilling mix.

As for the tradition, the exchange is also quite important. After all, he explains why Obi-Wan of the “A New Hope” era keeps Vader’s identity a secret from Luke and insists on calling his former apprentice by his Sith name even when they’re alone. For him, Anakin Skywalker really doesn’t exist anymore.
