Star Wars fans have taken their first steps into a larger world with the show''s first two episodes, which included new locations and new threats, particularly in terms of Rupert Friend''sGrand Inquisitor and Moses Ingram''s Third Sister.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally revealing what transpired during the Jedi''s sexuality on Tatooine, but the Disney+ series also raised new concerns.
Warning: The remainder of this article includes spoilers for Episodes 1 and 2 ofObi-Wan Kenobi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi gets another Disney+ flashback to Order 66 and a fresh perspective on the attack on the Jedi Temple. It''s interesting to hear how the scene is linked to the series, and theInquisitor Reva, but the answer is still unknown.
Obi-Wan Kenobi''''s Two Opening Scenes
The sequence of Obi-Wan Kenobibegins begins with a group of younglings being trained by their master before Clone Troopers enter the room and begin firing. While the Jedi is successful in protecting the children as they travel through the temple, she is eventually murdered, leaving the kids to attempt to escape on their own.
The finale concludes with Obi-Wan''s 10 years on Tatooine, where a trio of Inquisitors arrives. Reva, the Third Sister, outperforms the Grand Inquisitor, stands apart for her brutality, impatience, and desire to establishKenobi.
Why Reva is One of the FlashbackYounglings
Both scenes are back-to-back and Inquisitors are described as fallen Jedi, so the main obstacle among performers is that Reva is one of the younglings from the show''s cold open.
Since the scene did not include Obi-Wan Kenobi or Anakin Skywalker, there would be no need to focus on an unknown Jedi and a group of kids if it weren''t.
In addition to the episode 2, he warns her that "You came to us from the gutter. Your capability provided you station, but all the power in the world can''t hide the stench beneath."
While claiming that she was off the grid, Reva''s statement of "maybe that stench is your failure" appears to support her Jedi Temple past. After all, the Grand Inquisitor was a former Jedi Temple guard.
If the "failure" she referredtowas his inability to stop Order 66 and protect them, then it might be the reason why she ended up on her own with nothing.
If this is, in fact, Reva''s past, it may also explain some of her unsavory desire and ambition.
Reva''''s Connectionto Darth Vader
Senator Bail Organa has convinced Obi-Wan Kenobi to save a young Princess Leia, who was kidnapped and transported to Daiyu. It''s just who took her and why isn''t revealed until the second episode in which Reva is revealed to have orchestrated the plan to lure Kenobi out.
When Reva on Daiyu confronts the Grand Inquisitor, she replies, "You would kidnap an Imperial Senator''s child."
"I found a link between him and Organa in the Archives," Reva said, citing how I used the girl as a trap.
The Jedi Archives, which was built in the Jedi Temple, has been seen in live-action as a result of the Attack of the Clones and in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. Eventually, the Jedi Temple becomes the Imperial Palace, where Emperor Palpatine was able to study the archives.
While it does not appear that Leia or the Grand Inquisitor knows that Leia is Anakin''s daughter, Reva knows something Obi-Wan does not, and it is that Anakin had the same fate as Darth Vader.
At the end of the episode, Kenobi issues a line:
"I''m just going to take you to him." Lord Vader will be pleased. Obi-Wan. Anakin Skywalker is alive. He''s been looking for you for a long time. And I''ll be the one to deliver you to him."
She''s absolutely privileged to not only Vader''s true identity but also his desire to pursue his former master. Even though the other Inquisitors believe it''s a lost cause.
Why is Darth Vader''s identity so important, and why does he or she know about it?
If a young Reva is involved in the opening flashback of the show, it''s possible that it will not be the only one one fans will see. Plus, reports and speculation suggest that the series will feature Anakin Skywalker in flashback sequences. Perhaps another scene will show Reva encountering Anakin as he purges the Jedi Temple?
If Vader is obsessed with Kenobi and she knows Kenobi was Anakin''s apprentice, then getting the former Jedi Master to the Sith Lord would, as she said, receive her "what I''m owed."
The Truth Is in the Past
Kenobi will meet Vader at some point, and considering how integral Reva is to the show already, she''ll likely have a lot to do with it. Even if Obi-Wan missed Daiyu with Leia by the conclusion of the second episode, it''s no secret that Kenobi will meet with Vader at some point;
If Reva is one of the younglings who advanced in the Jedi Temple attack, she might be surprised by the past''s fate, but Reva''s future is less clear, especially since she isn''t among the Inquisitors in Star Wars:Rebels.
For the moment, fans may expect more flashbacks throughout Obi-Wan Kenobi''s six-episode run; and if the Grand Inquisitor survives the events of Episode 2, viewers may see him more.
The third episode of the show will premiere on Wednesday, June 1, and fans have less than a week to wait for answers. Also, given the second episode''s final scene, Vader may be on the way.
On Disney+, new episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi begin.
