This week’s episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi was nothing short of perfection. It got better and better and better.

Last week’s episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi was controversial for petty reasons. I enjoyed it for the action/adventure vibe it was displaying. This week’s episode, however, was nothing short of perfection. From the episode’s literal first seconds it was obvious this was going to be a special episode but as the story played out it got better and better and better.

Reva is at her absolute best in this episode, delivering a performance we won’t soon forget because of its incredible importance. Hayden Christensen’s return as the iconic Darth Vader has already been a treat but this episode brings him back in a way that’s so powerful I really want to see him get his own series.

As always Ewan McGregor provides a memorable performance as Ben Kenobi. He’s back to being a full-blown Jedi Master and honestly, it’s the coolest thing. How does this episode set up the finale? Well, it’s obvious that the finale is going to be an enjoyable ride. Will it make sense canonically? That remains to be seen.

I will say this. This show has been something I did not expect and yet it has utterly changed the way I now see the Original Trilogy. I hope we get a second season because want more of Obi-Wan’s story to be explored. It’s fascinating!
