Be careful what you expect when you watch Obi-Wan Kenobi episode 4 on Disney Plus — as it just dropped this morning. Now that we've revealed this show's version of Baby Yoda (she's not Baby Leia, but Vivien Lyra Blair's younger Princess Leia is close enough), the Obi-Wan Kenobi series gave us a taste of the main course last week.

After Leia went on the run (again) and (later) fell into practically the worst clutches imaginable on the Dark Side — Moses Ingram's Third Sister intimidates us like few on Lord Vader's side ever have, and she plans to bring her to Lord Vader —  the Sith Lord himself threw down with our titular Jedi Master.

Still very rusty, Obi-Wan was pulled into a Force choke on sight, levitating him into the air before Vader dragged him into a field of fire. This moment was perfectly familiar, mirroring Anakin's downfall from their first fight. 

Now, it seems as if Obi-Wan's recovery — both physically and emotionally — are keys to him triumphing (or surviving) his next fight with Vader. Learn more from our Obi-Wan Kenobi cast and character guide
