A new TV spot for 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' finale teases another impact showdown between Ben (Ewan McGregor) and Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen). The duo clashed lightsabers for the first time in Episode 3, and while there are enough storylines in the series, the strained relationship between the Jedi Knight and his protege has been the cornerstone of the Disney+ series. The last time both these characters clashed, it ended badly for Ben as Vader gave him a taste of the similar pain he suffered during the events of 'Revenge of the Sith'.

Vader and Obi engage in a duel on the mining planet Mapuzo where Tala (Indira Varma), an imperial officer who defected, takes Leia (Viviana Lyra Blair) to safety. However, the young princess convinced her to go back to Obi and the decision seems to be the right one after Vader tortures his worn-down former mentor just the same way he was left on the lava banks. While the latter was rescued by Tala, he had his share of pain, physically and psychologically.

There's not necessarily any new footage from the 30-second clip, but what the TV spot does is manage to create the hype by mashing key moments from the first five chapters. Ben and Vader take up a major chunk of screen presence. What we do know so far is that Reva (Moses Ingram) after being fatally injured by Vader in the previous episode will now head to Tatooine after she realizes that Luke Skywalker is out there. She realizes that this was a piece of information Anakin knew nothing about. But with Ben pretty much ending up there, will be looking at a stand-off between the three? Only time will tell.
