Why it’s important: Let’s not bury the lede, okay? Obi-Wan is/was in love with Satine, the current Duchess of Mandalore, after having spent some significant and intense time with her in his younger past – about a year with her and Qui-Gon, mostly on the run, never certain of their survival.
In this episode, Satine confesses her love to Obi-Wan, and Obi’s response is to say that if she’d only asked, he would have left the Jedi Order for her. Which, frankly, is BS. Come on, Obi-Wan, take responsibility for your own feelings. Why would you put that on her? If you really felt that way, you should have just left the Jedi Order!
But alas, he didn’t, and there’s a pointed conversation you’ll hear excerpted on the podcast about Obi-Wan’s regrets in this regard. You’ll also hear about R2 pulling an unusual prank, a music cue suggesting that Anakin takes another pointed step closer to the dark side, and more in this podcast.
