An ending with all the seasonings

Meanwhile on Tatooine, Reva arrives at Owen and Beru Lars’ farm looking for Luke Skywalker to get revenge on Vader by killing his son. On another planet, the Sith keeps the upper hand on Obi-Wan by throwing him into a pit and covering him with rocks. The Jedi recovers once he thinks of Anakin’s children who still need him. He returns to the duel more active than ever and gets the upper hand by injuring his former apprentice and destroying Vader’s iconic mask.

For the first time in 10 years Anakin and Obi-Wan see each other’s faces. The mentor apologizes to his former Padawan.

Reva does not have the evil necessary to murder young Luke and gives him back to his family. Also, Vader communicates with Palpatine that he suspects his apprentice’s feelings weakened him.

Obi-Wan says goodbye to Leia telling her that her parents were “exceptional people” and subsequently meets Luke on Tatooine.

Mounted on a strange creature that leads him like a somewhat tired horse, the noble Jedi is finally visited by his former master, Qui-Gon-Jinnone of the wisest members of the order, who found a way to present himself as a ghost. “I was always here, Obi-Wan. You just weren’t ready.”tells his apprentice inviting him to continue with a path that follows in Star Wars: A New Hope.
