For the new Star Wars series, the ending of the 1st season of Obi-Wan Kenobi has a really exciting conclusion. The finale pits the title Jedi master against his old disciple, who has evolved into Darth Vader, and features a variety of thrilling revelations and ties to the remains of the history. Obi-Wan and Anakin aren’t the only characters to earn a noteworthy ending prior to A New Hope, though.

Obi-Wan Kenobi sacrifices himself in Obi-Wan episode 6 in order to save Princess Leia and the Path resistance group. Vader deviates from his intended path to seek his former master, Obi-Wan, and the two fight in an iconic lightsaber fight. The ex-Third Sister, Reva, was also observed on Tatooine, having comprehended the information related to Luke Skywalker, and the Lars family as well.

This hitherto untold chapter of Obi-life Wan’s demonstrates how he learns to move past the horrors of Revenge of the Sith and the fall of Anakin Skywalker to the dark side. It is set in the gloomy period between the prequel and original Star Wars trilogies. Obi-Wan Kenobi shows Kenobi restoring his balance in the Force as a Jedi master and finally making peace with the past by the season’s finale, rather than just living and avoiding the Empire’s gaze. As a result, below is a detailed explanation of the Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1 ending.

The reasons Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated Darth Vader

In this fresh lightsaber duel, which is a repeat of their third episode of the show, Obi-Wan is more ready to fight Darth Vader because he has once more opted to be a Jedi. It has taken Obi-Wan some time to regain his former Jedi status because previous episodes showed him struggling as a result of his years of isolating himself from the Force and his struggles with his self-identified failures with Anakin.

Obi-Wan, on the other hand, has fully reconnected with his Force skills as a result of his experiences with Leia and the Path, which have given him something to fight for once more. This grants Obi-Wan the advantage since he surprises Vader, injuring the Dark Lord’s life support armor just enough to win their rematch and flee to Tatooine, abandoning his old apprentice to the darkness he has decided to turn into. This came after a really heartbreaking exchange during which Obi-Wan came to the tragic conclusion that Anakin Skywalker had been murdered by Vader (a notion the Sith Lord shares).

This gives him the upper hand as he catches Vader by surprise, damaging the Dark Lord’s life support armor enough for the Jedi to emerge victorious in his rematch against Darth Vader, and make his escape back to Tatooine, leaving his former padawan to the darkness he’s chosen to embrace. This was preceded by a truly tragic interaction where Obi-Wan concludes that Anakin Skywalker is dead having been killed by Vader (a notion the Sith Lord shares).

The Cameo of Qui-Gon Jinn Clarified

Kenobi obviously has a new lease on life now that he has been back to the desert world keeping an eye on young Luke Skywalker after he returend to Tatooine and rendezvous with Reva. Obi-Wan has consequently decided to vacate his cave in order to possibly settle on his property depicted in A New Hope. He encounters the ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn’s Force as well, though. It appears that after being rebalanced in the Force, he has ultimately been able to communicate with his master after previously being unable to do so. Qui-Gon mockingly reprimands his old apprentice for taking so long before admitting that he had always been with Kenobi, who was just not ready to see since he needed to first make peace with the past.

Palpatine’s Return Reveals The Reason Vader Never Found Kenobi

Darth Vader makes his way back to his citadel on Mustafar after unsuccessful attempts in killing Kenobi. Palpatine’s viewpoint persuades the Dark Lord to think otherwise, despite his assurance to the Emperor that he would search the galaxy in order to finish out his former master once and for all. The Emperor suggests that he wouldn’t need Darth Vader if Anakin Skywalker’s history couldn’t be overcome because he was worried that Vader’s sympathies for his old master were making his student weak. The Obi-Wan Kenobi series finale reaffirms that Darth Sidious was why Vader stopped pursuing Kenobi mercilessly once Obi-Wan was discovered by the Empire, demonstrating his loyalty to the wishes of his dark master.

What Reva Will Face Following The Finale Of Season 1

Reva discovered the identity of the Tatooine boy that Obi-Wan Kenobi had been guarding in episode 5, but the climax shows the ex-Third Sister trying to exact revenge by killing Luke Skywalker. The ex-Jedi youngling learns she can’t murder young Luke as retaliation for her companions who were slaughtered by Darth Vader during Order 66, regardless of her fight with Uncle Own and Aunt Beru and her chase of the boy. Obi-Wan gives Reva support when he shows up just in time to witness her giving Luke back to Owen and Beru. Kenobi then helps Reva understand that by showing mercy, she has honored her friends and brought them peace.

Reva will probably be searching for a location where she can also find serenity even if it’s uncertain what will happen to her after Obi-Wan Kenobi’s death (away from the gaze of the Empire). In any case, the fact that Reva survived after coming to her senses was a pleasant surprise (a trope that happens often). The former Inquisitor might have discovered a place to live on Tatooine, but it’s more likely that she’s leaving the planet in search of a secluded location where she can remain undetected.

What Will Occur To Obi-Wan Kenobi next?

It seems that Obi-Wan Kenobi is prepared to continue guarding Luke on Tatooine for another period of 9 years prior to what happens in A New Hope after his galactic journey with a young Princess Leia. Established Star Wars canon states that in that period, Kenobi had a variety of adventures on Tatooine, including tussling with Tuskens Raiders and even getting in trouble with Jabba the Hutt, which leads to Kenobi engaging in a confrontation with the terrifying Wookiee Black Krrsantan.

It also appears that Kenobi will also take advantages of communing with Qui-Gon Jinn who will teach him the mysteries of the Living and Cosmic Force after facing Darth Vader and the darkness of his history, giving him a revitalized purpose (allowing Obi-Wan to become a Force ghost after his death). The conclusion of Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1 dynamically brings the events of the new Star Wars series to a close while also setting the stage for the galaxy’s eventual redemption, which begins with A New Hope. This is made possible by Darth Vader not knowing where Obi-Wan went or the truth about his children.
