This preview for Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1, episode 4 contains spoilers for previous episodes.

Obi-Wan Kenobi delivered a dynamite episode this week, reintroducing Darth Vader in all of his terrifying glory. With the titular Jedi severely outmatched by his former Padawan, and still playing guardian to a young Leia, the stakes were higher than ever as the series reached its halfway point. Here’s what happened:

  • Obi-Wan and Leia, on the advice of Haja, made their way to a mining colony. While a local sold them out to the Empire, they were nonetheless able to hook up with an Imperial double agent named Tala, who helped through a kind of underground railroad for Jedi.
  • The Inquisitorius, all vying for the Grand Inquisitor position after Reva killed him and pinned the death on Obi-Wan, were able to track the titular Jedi Knight to the mining colony, and showed up en masse alongside Vader himself.
  • Obi-Wan confronted Vader to buy Tala and Leia time to escape. In a terrifying cat-and-mouse sequence, Obi-Wan was beaten down by his former Padawan, but was ultimately saved by Tala.
  • At the end of the episode, Reva, impersonating the pilot who was supposed to whisk Leia back to Alderaan, confronted Leia, who turned and ran.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1, episode 4 release date

The third episode will be released on Wednesday, June 8, at 8 am GMT. Despite the first two episodes airing on a Friday, subsequent episodes will return to the usual midweek slot alongside the forthcoming Ms. Marvel. This will be the fourth episode of a planned six, airing weekly through June 22, 2022.

Where to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi online

The show is exclusive to Disney+, which is available with a subscription. The streaming service is also the home of other original Star Wars content.

Preview and predictions for the next episode:

  • This is a long shot, probably, but do Obi-Wan’s continued efforts to communicate with Qui-Gon mean we’re getting a Liam Neeson cameo eventually?
  • I suspect Reva will get a hold of Leia and try to use her to manipulate Obi-Wan — she’s determined to gain favor with Vader, and that seems the smartest way to do it.
  • How badly hurt is Obi-Wan? How will he and Tala even get out of the area? I’m leaning towards a big loader bot self-sacrifice like Tales from the Borderlands.
