The Obi-Wan Kenobi series has four Inquisitors in it and yet the writers are treating them like the Knights of Ren…which isn’t good.

Last week’s episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi was mind-blowing. This week’s episode was fun.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, fresh from his confrontation with Darth Vader, has to once again rescue a captured Leia. To do so takes a lot of classic espionage Kenobi shenanigans which is always a blast to watch. Reva’s motivation with Kenobi is still unclear but of course, all will be explained in the next couple of episodes…I hope.

BEN & LEIA

Undoubtedly the best thing about this episode was the episode’s final minute which utterly warmed my heart. It was also very nice seeing Obi-Wan using his lightsaber again. As the series goes on I’m beginning to see more clearly the pros and cons of this series so far. Obi-Wan and Leia are at the heart of this series’ enjoyment but two characters seem like they could be removed from the story and it wouldn’t even matter: the Fifth Brother and the Fourth Sister.

Their presence is minuscule and adds nothing of value to the story whatsoever. The series has four Inquisitors in it and yet the writers are treating them like the Knights of Ren…which isn’t good. One is “dead” and two of them are forced to walk around, look menacing, and speak a few lines. Only Reva seems to fit into this story and even then it’s taking too long for us to understand her vengeful quest for Kenobi and how she knows Anakin’s name. This is an obvious flaw in the series that’s becoming more prominent as the weeks go by.

All in all, the series is still very entertaining and yes, I’m already hoping for a second season. I just need a little more time to spend with Obi-Wan because it already doesn’t feel like enough.

Let’s see what happens next week.
