Disney, ya dun did it again. You produced absolute crap for 2/3 of a series (think Boba Fett and the last trilogy) and then came back to show you CAN do Star Wars well, but it was too little, too late. The last 1.5 episodes did not save the series, as a whole. The series was terribly written, made the characters’ actions devoid of logic and provide a level of “plot armor” that very few show ever manage to obtain.

This should have been one Disney series called, The Inquisitor, that I’m even OK with Reva being the star and they could have done what Disney now does, which is be Woke.

Then, Disney could have produced a much shorter series, or better yet a Obi-Wan movie which could have looked a lot like the last two episodes. That movie would have crushed if it focused on Obi-Wan as the protector of Luke and ended with the face-off, which was excellent, between the two old pals.

Let’s talk plot armor. Why does nobody make sure anyone is actually dead?! Oh yea, they couldn’t because we know how all the main characters end up, which is alive for A New Hope. And really Obi-Wan, your old buddy murders your entire peer group, including children, you have him all F’d up and you just decide to walk away while he stands there? Didn’t you just say earlier in the episode that only one of you was walking off that planet?

Then there was the Reva-Luke plot line in the episode that made new sense. I’m confused. What does Reva know about “the child on Tatooine”? That was never developed. Here’s what I would have done, Reva hears the answering machine message about Luke and it is obvious he’s Vader’s son. To get revenge on Vader for putting a saber through her middle, she goes to kill Vader’s only known off-spring. Like in the series, because of her experiences, she can’t do it and you have the same end playout as it did. EXCEPT, Obi-Wan realizes Reva knows who Luke really is, and to keep him safe he “Jengo Fetts” her and then Uncle Owen and Aunt Berue bury her corpse in the desert.

We are still left with the plot hole from Empire about how Vader knew Luke was his son, but I’m OK with finding that out in a later series . . . produced by Elon Musk after he buys the franchise from Disney, instead of Twitter.


Again, too little, too late, but the scenes between Obi-Wan and Vader were excellent, like really excellent, as was the duel. The half Vader, half Anakin was already done in Rebels when Ahsoka cracked his mask, but it was cool to see in live action. Given the ending, the Leia plot line makes even less sense and could have been removed, which would have made for more consistency in Star War cannon.

Whatever Disney does next with SW, I guess I’m just going to watch the last 2/3 of whatever it is.
