Episode 6 of Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022.
Following on from the events of Part V, Obi-Wan and the survivors of the Path network race to escape from the pursuing Vader who is determined to destroy his former master.
In order to buy the survivors and Princess Leia time to escape, Obi-Wan lures Vader away, leading to a jaw-dropping confrontation between the former master and apprentice.
Vader is left licking his wounds after the duel while Obi-Wan heads back to Tatooine as young Luke finds himself in danger as Reva has managed to track him down.
Thankfully, Reva is unable to kill the innocent child as Darth Vader would have done and after returning Luke to Owen and Beru, Obi-Wan allows her to depart.
