Hunters and Hunted in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 2 Recap

Hunters and Hunted in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 2 Recap ...

Anakin Skywalker is alive.

Obi-Wan Kenobi gets a tumult of bricks. It''s a taunt from Reva, the Fifth Sister, an Imperial Inquisitor, who is evidently personally interested in Obi-Wan; indeed, she stabs her no-show boss, the Grand Inquisitor, who is in charge of the hunt.

If Obi-Wan has gotten acquainted with Revas'' initial mention of Lord Vader to the name of his old pupil, would it, therefore, mean that hes recognized the name all along, and that it would be surprising to see him seeing years of guilt, pain, and regret crashing through his old apprentices life. (It is an echo of the Return of the Jedi close-up on Luke when Darth Vader learns about Leia''s twin sister.) Obi-Wans'' greatest

There is still a lot of Obi-Wan Kenobi left in which the titular Jedis'' feelings about his old friend, and vice versa, can be explored. For the time being, what we have on our hands is a good old-fashioned bounty-hunting adventure, in which everyone and their grandmother seem to be in on the chase after Kenobi and Princess Leia Organa, the kidnapping of one of the Fifth Sisters orders so that Obi-Wan might escape.

Obi-Wan travels to Daiyua''s urbanized port-city planet, which he almost immediately obtains the help of a con man named Haja Estree, who pretends to be a Jedi, both to assist people and to pay for cash. (The Force is so strong with you! marvels one defrauded client; I know, the funny reply.)

Obi-Wan is forced to flee the Marvel/Netflix corridor with some goons before rescuing Leia from the bounty hunter Vecht and his minions. Vecht is later tormented by the Grand Inquisitor, who wants Obi-Wans'' location, and to challenge his truculent Sisters monomaniacal quest for the old Jedi.

As for the relationship between Obi-Wan and Leia, this series is quite reminiscent of the restless, mouthy pupil vs. flummoxed older warrior dynamics that recurred throughout the prequel trilogy. Obi-Wan tells Leia she reminds her ofwell, but he does not and can''t say it directly, but hes talking about Leia''s late mother, Queen Padme Amidala. Child actor Vivien Lyr

What we''ve got in this episode is a quite serious retcon of Princess Leia''s relationship with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Previously, he was simply the legendary warrior to whom a desperate Leia reached out for help as her ship was attacked. Perhaps this is because when Luke declares that the old Jedi is on the Death Star with them, it feels more justified, for example. Id have kept C-3PO a creation of Anakin Skywalker. Like, okay?

I guess that''s the problem with prequels and interquels, or they provide answers for no one asked, or make connections where connections aren''t necessary. On the other hand, they show us Obi-Wan Kenobi dressed in a hallway like hes Daredevil, and provide you with an Imperial Inquisitor, bathing her way across the rooftops like Catwoman, and, most importantly, give you a little jolt of Star Wars-iness you can consume in less
