(Spoilers ahead for Obi-Wan Kenobi’s 5th Episode)
On Wednesday, the live-action Star Wars miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi entered its last chapter, with episode 5 airing on Disney Plus. Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) managed to liberate Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) from the Imperial Inquisitors’ claws, thus they appear to be free and clear. Except that the Empire can monitor them thanks to Inquisitor Reva (Moses Ingram), called the Third Sister, who installed a tracker on Leia’s charming droid LOLA. Reva’s resourcefulness helps her avoid the wrath of Darth Vader.
This exhilarating episode of the Disney+ series has so much going on that viewers hardly have time to digest major discoveries like Tala Durith’s heroic death or Inquisitor Reva’s traumatic history as a Jedi youngling. However, once the dust has cleared and only a wounded, revenge-fueled Reva remains on Jabiim’s bleak surface, some viewers may be left with a number of unanswered questions regarding the show’s future direction.
Fans praise Reva’s character arc in Obi-Wan Kenobi
Moses Ingram has been the target of a barrage of anger and hatred. She even said that following her Star Wars debut, she received racist and obscene letters. Many admirers, however, have lately flocked to social media to appreciate the character and her development over the last five episodes. Here are some of the best fan reactions –
I honestly don't care if the #Reva spinoff is fan service bc I am the fan being serviced! I don't care about yall, I'm living in the Moses Ingram as Reva Third Sister cinematic universe!

Whole cast is killing it but folks should know that Vader scene would not have hit the way it did if Moses Ingram wasn’t putting in a great performance. #Reva

Reva is one of the best characters to come out of this new Disney+ era of Star Wars. Just phenomenally written.

Reva’s actual motives were revealed in the most recent episode. She was the youngling seen at the start of the show’s first episode, and her mission to find Obi-Wan and become the Grand Inquisitor was all part of a plan to get closer to Vader so she could kill him personally, as many fans believed. Now fans really are excited to see if, Reva ultimately chooses the path of redemption, and therefore rejects the path Anakin took when he slaughtered her fellow younglings. Or, if she decides that letting Luke grow up to become the Jedi that finally kills Anakin Skywalker is its own kind of sweet revenge.
The finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi will hit Disney+ on Wednesday, June 22.
