Old man Ben Kenobi is back with his very own Disney Plus show about his post-2005 adventures in the post-Jedi galaxy Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Obi Wan Kenobi‘The first two episodes released Friday, and while they’re giving Obi-Wan a mission worthy of a series of his own, they’ve also left us with a few questions along the way. Thankfully, the show has four episodes left to clear up our confusion and continue its already entertaining story.
But before a new episode arrives next week, here are some of our burning oddities from the first two episodes of the series.
[Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi, episodes 1 and 2.]
What’s the third sister’s deal?
The Empire’s Inquisitorius program was the antagonist of a few different post-Disney Star Wars series at this point. They play a big part in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Orderand they are an important part of Star Wars: Rebels also cartoons. As Obi-Wan himself explains, the Inquisitors are essentially Imperial Jedi hunters, and often ex-Jedi themselves.
It seems quite likely that this is the case with Obi-Wan’s apparent main antagonist, the Third Sister aka Rava. In fact, it looks like we might get a glimpse of a young version of her Obi Wan Kenobi‘s opening scene as the Clone Troopers invade the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.
But how does all of this tie into her obsession with Obi-Wan? This seems like a key question the show is trying to answer, but it certainly seems to have something to do with Darth Vader – considering she knows his secret identity as Anakin. Maybe she wants to betray Vader and needs Obi-Wan to help her get closer to her revenge? Or maybe Vader spared her, and now she’s his personal assassin. Anyway, Rava’s story is sure to be an important part of the rest of Obi Wan Kenobi.
Did the Grand Inquisitor really just die?
This question is a bit more confusing. It certainly looks like the Grand Inquisitor will be stabbed in the stomach at the conclusion of the second episode, but we also know that he’s alive Star Wars: Rebels, the series in which he eventually dies. So what’s up?
The theories on this are a little more confusing. It’s possible it’s not the same Grand Inquisitor. rebels‘Version of the character is clearly a Pau’an, and Obi Wan Kenobi‘It looks a bit more human. But that explanation seems pretty unlikely as it’s more plausible that they just changed the character’s design a bit. Instead, it seems more likely that the Inquisitor might survive the wound—Darth Maul has been through worse, after all—and harbor some grudge against the Third Sister from now on.
Wait, was that Flea in Star Wars?
Yes. There really isn’t much to say here. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Flea, the bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, was a space kidnapper.
What exactly is Ben’s job on Tatooine?
Honestly, this is a complete mystery. It seems like he’s working in a meat processing factory built on the corpse of a giant animal, but how can it be safe just to bake in the sun like that? And is he really supposed to take home some meat every day, or is he stealing from his boss, The Gut Puncher? Whatever the actual answers to these questions are, these are wonderful mysteries that I hope will never be fully resolved.
