Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 6 (finale) review: Ewan McGregor brings the iconic Jedi alive beautifully
Obi-Wan Kenobi - Ewan McGregor.

Story:

Obi-Wan Kenobi is trying to find a way to bring Leia back home. Meanwhile, Reva is finding Luke in order to kill him. Where will this story head?

Review:

Obi-Wan Kenobi finale commences in Tatooine, with Reva (Moses Ingram) making her way to the desert. She builds fear as she tries to get close to Luke Skywalker, who is going to be Obi-Wan's apprentice someday soon.

Kumail Nanjiani has a brief but impactful appearance this time. Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi is in his usual character - the selfless one.

Obi-Wan and Darth Vader's last fight in the series is, of course, one that cannot be forgotten. Even though this fight is never-ending, it doesn't bore you. In fact, there is a scene where Vader's real identity is revealed and this one makes for a beautiful scene. Evan brings life to the scene and that will warm your heart. Like we mentioned, since Darth Vader has been just a mask so long, it is truly beautiful to see at least part of Anakin Skywalker's face with darth Vader. The scene also becomes epic since Kenobi still has a tiny ray of hope that his student Anakin, who wanted to be a Jedi and not a Sith, still resides in Darth Vader. This is very literally shown even through the graphics and dialogues.

Meanwhile, Reva has her own battle to fight. Hers comes close to Kenobi and Vader's but obviously, it isn't so epic.

This episode has the Star Wars theme nostalgia in a scene too. It is brief but filled with so many memories of the franchise.

Of course, like the first episode, this one too runs high on Star Wars nostalgia. However, unlike the first episode, the story moves forward brilliantly.

Obi-Wan's last meeting with Leia is literal chills. Their beautiful bond is summed up brilliantly through the scene. While he hides some secrets, she adores him with her pure little heart. That genuinely is a beautiful sight.

Ben and Luke finally meet. Unfortunately though, the moment is very brief. Just then, the makers display the iconic locations from Tatooine, one that will mark the beginning of Luke Skywalker's story.

Verdict:

Everything about this episode is extremely beautiful. Even when you feel the Dark Side is constantly winning, there is always something or someone that wins your heart.

When the series ends, you will not be able to believe it is over. In fact, you would crave for more. Thus, without further ado, watch this episode to relive the Star Wars nostalgia and love every minute with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
