Kenobi had the chance to finish Vader off, but just walked away. Makes absolutely no sense to not put an end to the threat, especially since it seemed like he accepted that Anakin was gone.

Why Vader didn't finish off Reva is beyond me too. I always just need to turn my brain off for stuff like that apparently

Since Reeva knows that Luke is Vader's son, Kenobi should have killed her and tie up the lose strings. Kenobi just leaves and says "were good". Reeva knows a TON of information about Luke and Vader. Kenobi needed to end the risk right then and there.

I loved that last episode. But, I do have a hard time with two main characters in the series getting flat out impaled by lightsaber and basically walking away from it.

Lightsabers cauterize wounds.... Force healing is a thing now with baby Yoda. It's all on the table. Qui-gon must have gotten hit in a major organ. Who knows.

I agree though. Its kind of lazy story telling.

It would cauterize anything it touches. Which means blood pathways are blocked or now plugged. Cardiac arrest would follow shortly.

I mean, it's a laser sword fight between space wizards from long ago, in a different galaxy. Who's to say cardiac arrest is even a thing?

The ongoing lesson has to do with the value of mercy. Ongoing theme.

Exactly. It's a callback to Anakin's "Mercy doesn't defeat an enemy" line from the previous episode. They're drawing a clear line between the two, and what they're willing to do.

LOL...ok.

At the end of the day, its Disney Star Wars. I wouldn't be surprised if everyone who has died is still alive as long as content needs to be produced.

Apparently, Taika Waititi was interviewing Natalie Portman and asked her if she ever wanted to be in a Star Wars movie. Kind of worrisome if you consider that this is the guy writing/directing the next Star Wars movie.

Not at all. Star Wars needs to keep the aesthetic of the OT and needs new ideas everywhere else. Plus he was probably joking.

Is anyone else on here part of the exclusive Disney Mar/Matchbox survey community where you regularly answer a bunch of Disney+ surveys to help the company out? I personally was selected to be a part of it when I originally signed up for Disney+ through their special 3-year D23 promotion right when it came out. If anyone else is part of the survey community, I'm curious what your thoughts of them are? I'm also curious how many other people have been selected to be a part of them. I personally enjoy the possibility to give exclusive feedback to everything on Disney+, in which I know Disney is actually listening, even if it takes quite a bit of time to fill out the surveys. I've also found multiple instances where you can get indications of futures installments of certain things and or even confirmations of certain projects which technically aren't announced yet.
