That Ben (Ewan McGregor) will return to Tatooine is a no-brainer, but why and how the move comes about is explained in the final minutes of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Episode 5. Reva (Moses Ingram) learns that Leia Organa (Vivien Lyra Blair) is actually Darth Vader's daughter and that Luke Skywalker is his son. This is a new piece of information that she has on the man she planned to kill after he wreaks havoc during Order-66. She finds Ben's communication device and that reveals the location of the boy.

With this, the Disney+ series strongly suggests that the final showdown between Vader, Reva, and Ben will take place in Tatooine. Now that Reva's character arc is explained, she will look to use Luke as bait and exact revenge on Vader and Rupert Friend's Grand Inquisitor who is revealed to be alive. Chronologically, Ben does finally end up in Tatooine, but this was a twist nobody saw coming.

It was a humdinger of an episiode of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'. From key character deaths to some much-needed Darth Vader content, chapter V had it all, much to the delight of the fans. The 40-minute episode saw watched Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker (a younger digitized version) and a mullet-rocking Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) square off during the former's days as a Padawan. This coupled with Reva's (Moses Ingram) origin story and the death of Tala (Indira Varma) made for an epic watch.

With the finale set to air next Wednesday, there's no telling what to expect as it will be a race for revenge and rescue. While there is enough from 'The Mandalorian' and 'The Book of Boba Fett' to suggest that Luke will be alive, how it ends for Reva is an even bigger question mark?

'Obi-Wan Kenobi' drops with a new episode every Wednesday on Disney+.
