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 in their own words, "hit them hard" as they 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.

The episode ends with a badly hurt Reva finding Obi's communication device where the next message is to save a young Luke Skywalker. With the finale set to air next Wednesday, there's no telling what to expect. "This week on #ObiWanKenobi they managed to take requests from all over the spectrum of Star Wars fan and made it work as a (as one wise man would say) tapestry of pain and hope. I am without words. This is my favorite episode of Star Wars TV," one of the fans opined. "#ObiWanKenobi #ObiWan #Kenobi spoilers // . . . . . . this whole scene went so hard. the way everything vader did was so effortless," a tweet said.

"It’s been 15 minutes since I finished #ObiWanKenobi and I still can’t process what I just watched. My brain has stopped working," one of the tweets read. "YOU GUYS!! I can't even begin to unpack what I just witnessed! That was absolutely the most greatest episode of any show I have ever seen in my entire life. Episode 5 solidified this show the greatest TV series ever produced by LucasFilm. #StarWars #ObiWanKenobi," one of the fans remarked. "Hayden returning for flashbacks was better than a couple of them movies #ObiWankenobi," one of the comments read.

#ObiWanKenobi Episode 5 has a great reoccurring flashback. It’s beautifully shot, emotionally pivotal & well choreographed. Nostalgia works! The story just remains predictable, & - while the ep has COOL moments - the staging could feel more intense. Step up from 4. Score: 7/10," a tweet said.
