It felt like an X-Wing attack, even if it technically wasn’t. Obi-Wan’s infiltration of the Inquisitor palace AKA Jedi tomb was pretty sweet. Of course he saves Leia, but the real revenge is coming when he sinks the tomb. Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1.
An X-wing attack to save Obi-Wan and Princess Leia! Okay, not exactly X-wings, but as close as we’ll get in Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1. It was a pretty cool infiltration of the Inquisitor palace, which is apparently a Jedi tomb. Two rebel spies help Tala and Obi-Wan escape from Darth Vader. Apparently Reva let them escape, because the Empire always lets the Rebels go… She did put a tracker on Leia’s little robot, but prediction! Fifth Brother kills Third Sister AKA Reva and then gets killed himself by Darth Vader. The almost X-wing’s swooping in was the gravy on this boat. I want another Obi-Wan versus Darth Vader battle please, before revenge sinks the Inquisitor palace.
Taking place ten years after Star Wars Episode 3 is cool. Filling in the gaps to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s story is also cool, along with a pretty bad ass young Princess Leia. It’s too bad we already watched a loner come out of exile to save a child and return him home. Fortunately this is Star Wars, where recycling old plots is the expectation and the lightsaber battles make everything okay!

We need more lightsaber battles and force powers. I want the light versus the dark and a hero worth watching. Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1 is starting to deliver, but old Ben needs to get it together because the Inquisitors are kind of awesome. Share with me your thoughts and make sure you watch our quick review.
