Let's Rewatch THAT Scene From Episode 3 Of Obi-Wan Kenobi

First of all, let me just say how much I hate the streaming world we live in where I can't make a headline like "LET'S WATCH DARTH VADER FUCK UP A BUNCH OF INNOCENT VILLAGERS AND TRY TO BURN A TERRIFIED OBI-WAN KENOBI ALIVE". Thanks a bunch Netflix, you fucking jerks. Actually I take that back because the first half of Stranger Things 4 has ruled (click here to watch our recaps of the first three episodes). But I do miss appointment weekly TV where you don't have to worry about spoiling anything for like 72 hours when any normal person can carve out an hour for their favorite show.

Anywayyyyyy, I was starting to get a little worried about the direction this show was heading after the first two episodes that felt closer to Boba Fett than The Mandalorian since it was a slow couple of episodes that sprinkled in some cringey scenes.

HOWEVAH, bringing back the big bad masked man with the killer case of asthma quickly alleviated all those concerns. Not only was it great seeing Vader back in black but it was great seeing the unhinged Vader like the one from Rogue One.

That scene will never not be amazing. Oh you know all those characters you just spent two hours falling in love with? Yeahhhhh, they're all dead. But don't mourn for them right now, because we still have a motherfucking star war going on with the most powerful evil man in a galaxy far, far away about to fuck up everyone that opposes him.

To see that we are indeed going to get Vader Unleashed for the rest of this series along with hopefully a smattering of other shows/movies in the near future is so fucking awesome. I agree with Kevin Smith when he said Vader should almost be treated like Jaws in that you don't see him a ton but you are still scared he may pop up at any time then leave a bunch of bodies in his wake. I may have been critical of Obi-Wan for being a coward the first two episodes of the series.


That being said, I have no problem with Obi-Wan running away like a bitch after realizing his old apprentice wasn't some crispy emo Hayden Christiansen in a robe but instead a robot man willing to snap kids' necks just to smoke out his old master. Damn it's good to have Vader back.

Robbie and I broke down that entire fight scene along with Obi-Wan having shit for brains when trying to stay undercover, how there better not be an Obi-Two Kenobi, who may be the next big Jedi introduced in the show, and where we hope to see everything go now that we've reached the halfway point of the season (which is crazy to say).
