TV-9D9 / Re: Kenobi (Disney+) - (SPOILERS possible)
« on: June 24, 2022, 01:12 PM »
The story point that I think might make for a series of its own was the escape of Roken and the members of the Path network.  The Grand Inquisitor said it himself to Vader as Obi-Wan attempted to get the Star Destroyer to pursue him so that Roken and his crew could repair the ship and escape.  They could squash the network in that moment with one stroke.  And there was also the matter of Reva being on her own.  Where does she go now?  And of course there was the mention of Quinlan when Obi-Wan was in the safe house on Mapuzo.  These are the threads that seem like they have the most potential for a possible second season.  Which begs the question - how would Obi-Wan Kenobi fit into all of that?

This (Roken and The Path) might be an interesting story to follow and it could also include Reva in her redeemed arc leading the Force-sensitive/evading the Inquisitors.  I've heard rumors (don't recall from where so take it with a grain of salt) that Moses Ingram might get her own spin-off series so this could possibly be a route they go.  I think it would be nice to see more of the Inquisitors since I felt some of them could be explored more.  Perhaps Quilan could make an appearance?  But Ewan does a great Obi-Wan and I'd love to see him and Hayden pick up their roles again in the SW Universe.

I really can't agree with anything that's been said here about the series.  I thought it was well done.  Yes, I had my nit-picks (mainly that chase scene on Alderaan) but I would also give it an A.  It'd be interesting to see if they have a second season.  I can't imagine what else they could explore but I'm sure the writers can put something captivating and interesting out for us to enjoy.

Thanks for the link, Jeff!

I just chalk it up to him being much closer to the transport than he was to the Falcon or the Blockade Runner. Plus they were moving faster.

Pfft.  Han just didn't believe in the Force at the time so those old sorcerer's tricks wouldn't work on him.  ;)

I haven't gone back and rewatched it, but did Vader skewer her with both of her lightsabers or was it just with one?  If he used both, I was thinking he might reuse his Dooku method of splitting her in half... but Reva still has a role to play so that wouldn't work.

I agree therefore after 1st "stab" you should go in for 2nd, 5ths, Xths.

Especially, considering it was Vader who embraces his anger, you'd think he'd have gone for those 2nds, 5ths, etc.  At least until he was satisfied.

I just learned that the character Tetha Grig, the woman who was trying to sell Obi-Wan spice on Daiyu, is Esther-Rose McGregor, Ewan's daughter.  Kind of funny that she tells him she was once someone's daughter before she ended up on Daiyu.

People obviously didn't know until the figure showed up or read the articles posted.
But to this point:

But didn't he get shot? Seemed obvious it wasn't 4-LOM I thought.

That's wrong: Threepio was shot in Empire, reassembled.  Artoo was shot by Vader in his TIE and by a Stormtrooper on Endor, fully restored... so people can assume that 4-LOM was that droid (even though he had a bandolier and pistols in that scene) even though he was shot. 

Nope just seldomly agree with you Steve

Wow!  Well, for future reference you don't have to reply to my posts.  It'll save you the angst.  As the Sandtrooper said, "Move along, move along!"

Still never thought it was 4lom post the episode

Never said it was, Nick.  Being a bit argumentative today?

I'm not sure it was predictable as much as they hint/told us it was going to happen.

There was more to it.

Droids can be rebuilt.

But being a LOM model, it's weird that they went with 1-JAC instead of 12-LOM or something.

The twist was predictable, though.

Itís been so good this season, aside from the dumb jocks who we really do not ever need to see again unless they are all getting killed please.

Dude who plays 001 was really creepy and excellent I thought.

So what is the significance of Willís painting? At first I assumed it was probably of Vecna or something but now it seems like it might be something else.

Yeah, it's been a good season.  I figured out that the aide was 001.. but missed the connection to Vecna.

The jocks.  I think their role was to play into the whole hysteria at the time that D&D is a satanic cult and that evil needs to be rooted out because jock's girlfriend became a Bend 'Ems figure while at Eddie's house, who happens to host a D&D group at school called the Hellfire Club, hence Eddie is a hell-spawn (along with Dustin, Lucas, & Mike).

Will's painting is a subject of speculation and there have been hints scattered in the season that Will is gay/has a crush on Mike.  But I'm sure it will be revealed in the next two episodes whether this speculation is true.

I'll be there in September.  Hopefully I can find one.

I believe these were originally selling for $40-50 so quite a mark-up on the 'bay.

Pretty interesting episode.  Some nitpicks but again, but just trying to ignore it and enjoy it.

I'll try to be vague about things so as to avoid spoilers.

I loved seeing a certain ship involved in the episode in a new environment.
One previously released figure made its live-action debut.
A Clone Wars character also makes his "live-action" debut
The front of Tala's Imperial shuttle definitely looked inspired by another sci-fi show's toasters.
