It is accurate to what was said by “Third Sister”, in the show.
So…. That means that Darth Vader, at any time, could have tortured Organa to get the location of Obi-wan, and inadvertently, stumble upon Leia and Luke after the events of this series and retcon the whole OT? And he chose not to?

I guess, if he ever got around to it.

I imagine he had better things to do like hanging out in his Bacta Tank in his scary castle where he reminisces about losing his limbs and being BBQ’ed.

I know this is meant to be comedic, but I have to ask: the “found a connection between Organa and Obi-wan in the Archives” bit… is he right? Is that an actual plot hole presented in this story, which is supposedly canon? Because if that is, it seems like a big enough plot hole to drive the Death Star through.

I don't think there's anything canon-wise, I think it's mainly Disney fanboys trying to make up reasons for bad writing. Palpatine knew that Obi-Wan had been in some meetings where Bail was in attendance, but other than that, nothing. Obi-Wan and Bail didn't go bar hopping or hang out, so I don't know what they are trying to use as proof. If there was any connection, Obi-Wan sure as hell wouldn't have hid Leia with him!

So I was sure whether to post this here or the 'Lets talk all things Star Wars.' Anyways I was going through the web archive reading some of the Lucasfilm forums. I read about supposed deleted scene from Attack of the Clones where it's mentioned that Owen had a brother taken by the Jedi. Kinda thought that was funny since in this show Obi-Wan mentions maybe having a brother. And at one time Obi-Wan and Owen were meant to be brothers.

If there was no plot hole where Reva finds an "existing" connection off camera there is no moving the, for lack of better word, plot, along. If not there would have to be five minute scene where a character slips and reveals information or actually legit discovers a connection on camera. But that five minutes would involve brain stuff for writers to brain stuff up. That and we would maybe had to lose the worst parkor ever filmed to include some actual story. But super Reva had to have a loaded deck to be steps ahead of everything and everyone. The fine line between enjoyment and frustration is lost with this show. It's either or.

A friend is a fan of SW and Marvel and a sports fanatic to the point he knows who did what when and where before any sports player was a pro, same with SW and Marvel. He enjoys all the films and TV shows and even defends the terrible writing, plot holes, characters, casting, acting... As the saying goes ignorance is bliss. He knows nothing of how a production goes, just a consumer. It took some time but he did finally have the blinders lifted when marvel went the way of the message. He's slowly coming around to the fate of SW.
The kid that works the desk at my gym, he’s a huge fan. 19 years old.. loves the Kenobi series, hates the original trilogy.. claims it’s too slow and boring..

With the rumors of them rebooting the OT, and his mind set.. I can totally see this happening..

It just amazes me how many plot holes, errors, and character rewrites and people eat this stuff up

Laser sword battle at the end.. throwing large rocks! YUP! Win!!

“… that’s not how the force works”

Many of my friends that are around my age, prefer the PT. The OT is slow and has dated special effects to them.

And yeah, ESB is kinda slow. But man, once you understand what Yoda is saying, those parts suddenly become your favorite. I used to tune them out when I was kid. Give me battles and action. But now that I'm older. I'm enthralled by Yoda's simple, profound wisdom. And Luke's hardheadedness. Lol That moment when you realize that us as kids are kinda disappointed by Yoda, like Luke is. We want the action and the lightsaber duels. And suddenly here's a character teaching Luke to peaceful and to be non-violent, that balks at the action and adventure, the thing we, as kids love.

I for one am going to start my kids on the OT. It will be interesting to see if it takes. See if my love for it will rub off.

Modern fandom is a joke at this point. Everyone can enjoy whatever they want, but if your wrote response to loving a new show based on a property that's been around for almost 50 years is that you hate the source material, then your opinion is worthless. It's fine to enjoy a new addition, but if you can't stand the very thing that generated the new material, then you have zero leg to stand on and it shouldn't come as a shock that longtime fans will laugh off your perspective.

I was the same way. I always thought that part was really boring as a kid (I was 3yo in 1980), mainly because it was slow and I don't think I really got what it meant. I absolutely loved Cloud City, the way it looked, so I was always wanting to get to that part.
