@Local Trouble, wow, sounds like quite a journey. Can you say that you have fallen to the dark side ?

@Kradan My fan card was revoked in 1997 when I wouldn't stop talking about how awful the changes in the special editions were.  Then, in 1999, I was declared an Enemy of the Fandom when I wouldn't shut up about how terrible The Phantom Menace was.

I'm a loner, Dottie.  A rebel.

@Local Trouble, I know it's kinda weird, but I begin to think that you're some sort of a Star Wars fan. I don't wanna make any claims here, but it's almost as if you have some sort of emotional connection to the material, Nah, scratch that, totally ludicrous

@TilotnyWorshiper28 If the Empire knew that Bail was, like you said, "a primary member of the rebellion" then anywhere he went should have been investigated as a potential location for the hidden rebel base that they were obsessed with finding.

Of course, that's assuming you're right about them watching him so closely that he couldn't even make a private phone call from Alderaan. :laugh:

@Immortan Jonesy Leia didn't have much choice at that point.  Her ship was captured and she was about to be taken prisoner.  Whether she knew Obi-Wan personally or not, she was supposed bring him back to Alderaan which made him the natural choice to carry on her mission anyway.  Like she said, he was her only hope.

Quote from: Gentleman Death on Yesterday at 04:38:31 AMFirst episode if Kenobi was good, wasn't expecting huge fights or anything so it delivered in setting up the series...however I'm not really digging the mini leia kidnapping plot. I hate to say it but I kinda rolled my eyes at this, guess we'll see how this plays out...

The fact that Leia, after being captured by Vader, trusted and decided to pass her mission on to someone else, Obi-Wan Kenobi, fits in with what we saw in the series in a way. I mean, it could be interpreted that she knew him in person beyond the stories of her adoptive father.

Quote from: Local Trouble on Yesterday at 02:29:14 AMHow old is Reva supposed to be?  Based on the prologue from the first episode, I thought Reva would turn out to be one of the younglings who were shown escaping from the clone troopers.

Maybe she witnessed Anakin carrying out Order 66.  I wonder if Vader knows that she knows.  He's killed his own men for that.

If Vader doesn't know that she knows (she was most likely the Jedi girl from the prologue as you've pointed out), then maybe it could mean that Vader is going to kill her, provided he finds that out of course.

On the other hand...
Spoiler
The premature "death" of the Inquisitor has given the fans something to talk about (what a surprise! :laugh: ). Some are already wondering if he's going to survive given his appearance in Rebels, which is supposed to be canon. But...it's not like we haven't already seen that with Darth Maul or Palpatine anyway.

Quote from: Local Trouble on May 27, 2022, 08:41:29 PM@St_Eddie Is this show going to explain why Bail didn't just use his holo-pager to summon Obi-Wan in ANH?
empire was invesgating him  they basically new he was a primary member of the rebellion so they were watching him

They were watching him 24/7? What, even when he was on the toilet?  There was literally nowhere he could go to make a video call in private?

LOL, what?  Bail was on Yavin IV right before the Battle of Scarif so the Empire couldn't have been watching him too closely.

Quote from: BlueMarsalis79 on May 27, 2022, 11:16:49 PMKOTOR 2 is coming to the Switch! Release date June 6th, with officially-supported free TSLRCM DLC download at some point post-launch!

Did you watch that 8-hour video I posted before?

they didn't have enough to convict him. Yavin Iv isn't a real suposious planet. they didn't even know the rebellion was using a sith temple as their base.

she's obviously the black girl in the order 66 shot in the opening .  Vader either spared her or didn't see her escape.  Vader only kills people that he knows knows with the exceptions being Tarkin , Darth sidious , Thrawn and Sabe.

It will be the rematch of the century! ;D a curious detail however, is that Reva knows about Vader's true identity. I also wonder if we're going to see Qui-Gon Jinn's presence at some point.

I'll keep watching for now, if only to see how fast and loose Deborah Chow plays with continuity for the rest of the series.

If this is an indicator of things to come, the Vader rematch might just give me a stroke.
