The finale of the latest Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi is finally here and it only managed to be an okay experience at best.
The episode has a few entertaining sections but ultimately feels rushed especially Obi-Wan's return to form as a Jedi Master .
While the show had set up the fact that Kenobi is not at full strength and is filled with guilt over the fate of his former apprentice, the ease at which he ' gets over it' felt lazy.
Had the show taken its time, especially in the previous episode to set this up then the payoff would have been worth it.
Of course, the main focus of the episode was the rematch between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader and this is the best part of the episode.
Every interaction between the two characters throughout the series was engaging and it is no different here.
However, the actual fight at times feels poorly shot and there were times I would have been able to a make out what was happening if it wasn't for the different colored light sabers
But thankfully the fight between the two ends on a high note but not to the level of hype the people behind the show made it out to be.
The story arc revolving around Reeva felt like a last-minute revison to the script, perhaps the character will play a bigger and more consistent role in the future of the series but I doubt she would be missed if we never see her again.
The series ends teasing the possibility of a second season, hopefully, the showrunners learn from the mistakes and make a more consistent and well-paced season two.
So in the end Ob-Wan Kenobi is a bumpy but enjoyable entry into the Star Wars franchise.
