Review of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Season 6, Episode 6: A similarly compelling conclusion to a flawless season

On June 22, 2022, Disney+ broadcast the final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Over the course of its six episodes, Deborah Chow’s miniseries has beautifully lived up to its enormous expectations. Even though it was slower and less densely packed than the rest of the show, the conclusion fulfilled its objectives without going overboard.

The episode included a significant confrontation between Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) (Hayden Christiansen). Despite the fact that the struggle was a key plot point, Reva’s (Moses Ingram) resolve and eventual change of heart gave the storyline the complexity and cyclical ending it sorely required.

Review of Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 6: A satisfying, if not tense, conclusion to a Star Wars tale

The finale’s intricacies made it memorable even though it wasn’t as urgent as some of the earlier episodes. It certainly had its anxious moments, but overall it was more deft and less rough.

As Darth Vader and the Empire attempted to pursue the Path at the end of Part V, an injured Reva (Moses Ingram) made the decision to pursue Luke Skywalker in Tatooine.

Despite the previous episode’s revelation that Reva had good intentions, she continued to view Luke as a danger. She also viewed it as a means of getting back at Darth Vader. With Owen (Joel Edgerton) battling to defend Luke, this section of the plot was the tenseest.

On the other side, Obi-Wan made the decision to use himself as bait in order to lure the Empire away from the Path spacecraft, which of course brought him and Vader into conflict. With a superb Vivien Lyra Blair matching step for stride with the seasoned actor, McGregor’s parting farewells felt genuine.

The duel between Obi-Wan and Vader is brilliantly staged and photographed. With the added brilliance of new technological advancements, it featured all the components that made the classic fight scenes in the Star Wars trilogy so memorable. Due to the contrasting red and blue colors against a completely dark background, the fight felt terrible and looked magnificent.

Obi-Wan emerged victorious from the conflict and later found that his companion Anakin had vanished. He was absolved of his guilt by this change in viewpoint. He walked away from the scene because he still could not bring himself to kill his old friend.

Reva managed to corner the young Luke but was unable to kill him. Reva accomplished this by demonstrating that she was superior to Vader and that it was never too late to stop the cycle. Reva’s narrative came to an end at this point when she accepted who she was.

At the conclusion of the finale, where are all the characters?
Princess Leia was finally reunited with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Aldeeran, where she had safely arrived. Luke and Leia can be seen in their homes, safe and unharmed for the time being.

The final seconds of the episode featured Obi-Wan moving into his final home, where he runs into the Qui-Gon force ghost (Liam Neeson). Perhaps since Obi-Wan was no longer burdened by his guilt, this occurred.

The conclusion was a technical and narrative success in showcasing the best aspects of Star Wars. Even if a second season has not yet been discussed, the channel would have every right to pick up the series again for a subsequent episode given the success of this one.

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s final episode is currently available for streaming on Disney+.
