Obi-Wan Kenobi finale recap

Early on in the finale, Obi-Wan decided to break away from the fleeing Jedi ship in order to lure Darth Vader away from them by traveling to a nearby planet alone. As planned, Darth Vader followed.

Upon arrival, the pair engaged in what will go down as one of the most iconic Star Wars battles in history. Despite being buried by rocks, Obi-Wan was able to tap into his full strength by way of the force once again and rain rocks down on Vader.

In the end, the Jedi managed to best Vader and slice open his helmet to reveal the Sith Lord’s true self. A heartfelt exchange revealed that Darth Vader was the one who killed Anakin Skywalker, not Obi-Wan.

However, many fans are wondering why Obi-Wan didn’t finish their battle by killing Darth Vader, bringing an end to his pursuit.

Why did Obi-Wan not kill Darth Vader?

Obi-Wan did not kill Darth Vader because firstly, killing is not the Jedi way, and secondly, Obi-Wan already thought he had killed Anakin Skywalker back on Mustafar during Revenge of the Sith, and killing Darth Vader would have brought him no peace, further removing him from the force.

“You didn’t kill Anakin Skywalker, I did,” informed Darth Vader, bringing Obi-Wan the harsh truth that his once padawan was gone for good.

Vader somehow relived Obi-Wan of his grief over killing Anakin by informing him that his dark side had ridden him instead.

Once Obi-Wan was relieved of this grief and was able to walk away from Vader, he was truly reunited with the force, which is why he was then able to see his master Qui-Gon’s force ghost.

Comicbook.com also noted that Obi-Wan’s mercy mirrored Reva’s, whilst pursuing Luke Skywalker after she traveled to Tatooine to get revenge on Darth Vader for killing her friends.
