This article is a preview for Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1, episode 5 and contains spoilers for previous episodes. 

Obi-Wan got much more in tune with the force in this week’s episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, and it’s probably just as well since we was engaged in a dangerous mission to spring Leia from her captivity in the Fortress Inquisitorius. With that outing completed successfully, though not without cost, next week’s episode will shift into the back half of the season with, presumably, an upping of the stakes and slight darkening of the tone. Here’s what went down in “Part IV”:

  • Obi-Wan was partially healed in a Bacta tank by Tala and her fellow Path members, though visions of Vader got him out of there early. With Leia being held in the Fortress Inquisitorius and interrogated by Reva, Obi-Wan mounted a rescue mission.
  • The mission was contingent on Tala using her Imperial access, which eventually required her to cover to be exposed, though both she and Obi-Wan were able to escape with Leia.
  • Throughout the episode, Obi-Wan became much more in tune with the Force and began to use his powers and saber more effectively.
  • Vader was furious with Reva’s failure until she revealed that she intentionally allowed Obi-Wan and Leia to escape because she had planted a tracker in Leia’s droid, Lola.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 1, episode 5 release date

The fifth episode will be released on Wednesday, June 15, 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 fifth 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:

  • Obviously, Reva will follow the tracker — but will it be discovered ahead of time, or will she use it to locate the Path? I think she might be sent on a red herring, though it’ll be a close call.
  • I’m interested to see more of Roken. He was married to a Jedi — someone we know? We might learn more about his past in subsequent episodes.
  • Tala isn’t long for this show I don’t think.
  • Obi-Wan getting back in tune for the Force only makes the prospect of another duel with Vader more enticing.
  • Surely we’re due a cameo. Any thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
