Episode 6 of this mini series allowed Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader to face off once again. A fight mastered as a whole by the Jedi master, even if at one point he is on the verge of being defeated. Obi-Wan manages to regain the upper hand and heavily injure his former disciple. If this confrontation finally gives dynamism to the series, it especially allows the Jedi to mourn. He who is racked with guilt since Anakin went over to the dark side of the Force. But Vader, more terrifying and more obstinate than ever, leaves in the last minutes of the episode this sentence to make a definitive mark on his past of Anakin Skywalker: “This you weren’t the one who killed Anakin Skywalker. It’s me “. A dialogue that makes Obi-Wan realize that his former friend and disciple is really dead.

One can really wonder about the fact that Obi-Wan does not complete Darth Vader when he had the means. Obviously, compared to the events of the original trilogy, this is quite impossible. Even if taking into account this scene of the series, we say to ourselves that the Jedi could have solved many problems in the galaxy and saved the lives of many characters if he had gone to the end. Once again, his feelings will have gotten the better of him.

The most attentive and the most connoisseurs will have noticed that a scene during the fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader was similar to that experienced by Ahsoka Tano in star wars rebelsalthough it’s of course not the same circumstances – Obi-Wan Kenobi being Anakin Skywalker’s former master, and Ahsoka his disciple.
