In Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 3, things get quite heated up. In just the last episode, Leia and Ben managed to escape to Mapuzo in a freight spaceship. All while Inquisitor Reva killed an inquisitor in her search for Kenobi. In the last scene of the episode, she reveals to the Jedi Master that his former pupil is still alive, something that shocks him.
Now, as Leia and Obi-Wan land in Maputo what will become of them? Furthermore, how can Master Kenobi hide his use of force while being chased by the inquisitors that sense his presence? All this and more in our recap ahead. But reader beware! We have major spoilers ahead! So watch out! Now without further ado, let’s begin
Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 3 Recap
The episode begins with a short scene recap from episode two, with the highlight of it being Reva revealing to Obi-Wan that Anakin is still alive. Then, we see the Jedi Master on his knees inside the spaceship taking them to Mapuzo trying to use force to communicate with Qui-Gon Jinn. Still, the flashbacks of sensing Darth Vader’s presence make him flinch and scare him.
Then, there’s a young and curious Leia asking him questions while he’s just too anxious to answer. So, to keep her off of him, he repairs her LOLA droid and gives it back to her. Meanwhile, we see images of Darth Vader’s semi-human body being assembled and communicating to Reva his discontent in not finding Kenobi. He’s angry and threatens Reva with her life if she fails.
Reva Asserts Her Authority
Reva goes before the Grand Inquisitor, who force chokes her and bends her over a desk to assert his power. But he flinches when she tells him that she spoke to Lord Vader and tells him about her mission. Consequentially, Reva orders a set of probe droids deployed to seek Kenobi.
The spaceship lands on Mapuzo and our duo evade being detected. They’re out on the sticks and in the middle of nowhere. Leia spots a carrier and hitchhikes on it. Then, the carrier picks up some stormtroopers that start asking questions, Obi-Wan gives out some answers and when he mixes things up, he quickly fixes his story to convince the stormtroopers.
Then, the carrier stops at a roadblock and there’s a checkpoint with another set of stormtroopers that want to use a droid probe to check Obi-Wan’s identity. But he quickly destroys it and kills the other droids. When they get past the blockade, another set of stormtroopers and an imperial officer intercept them, Leia and Kenobi surrender but the imperial officer is part of Kenobi’s plan to escort them to safety and hides them in a garage.
Empire Looms In
While the duo is hidden in the garage, Kenobi discovers that the rebel alliance is using this and other safehouses to escape, and sees the fellow Jedis’ writings on the wall. Therefore, he begins to feel a little hope. Then, some stormtroopers raid the place but they remain hidden. As Teva, their plug-in Mapuzo takes them through the tunnels to the spaceport, Obi-Wan flinches as he feels the presence of Darth Vader.
Darth Vader walks through the spaceport and into town force-choking and killing innocent inhabitants to lure Obi-Wan out. Kenobi notices this, he’s aghast but he remains hidden. He orders Teva to take Leia and goes out to confront Vader and a lightsaber battle ensues. With each parry, Obi-Wan almost falls, as he’s overpowered by Vader.
When Teva and Leia are in the tunnel, Leia tells her to get Obi-Wan and Teva obeys. So, the young princess waits in the tunnels as Reva looms in. Meanwhile, the lightsaber battle continues, and just when Vader overpowered Obi-Wan, disarming him and choke-holding him with the force, Vader uses his powers to spill fuel on the floor, lights it up with his lightsaber and drags Obi-Wan on it to torture him.
After that, a group of stormtroopers join Vader but from above, Teva fires at them. Right in the nick of time, a droid picks up Obi-Wan and rescues him while an immobile Vader simply contemplates the scene. Lastly, Reva finds Leia and the episode concludes with a massive cliffhanger.
