How Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Long-Awaited Lightsaber Duel Demonstrated Why Darth Vader Has Never Defeated Obi-Wan

Spoilers ahead for the “Chapter III” episode of Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is the first live-action Star Wars series set between Revenge of the Sith and the original trilogy. After three episodes, the show has not only brought back Obi-Wan and Darth Vader with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprising their roles, but delivered their first reunion since their fateful duel on Mustafar. Admittedly, the “Chapter III” duel paled in comparison to Revenge of the Sith’s due to Obi-Wan’s decade in the desert, but I feel that the long-awaited showdown established why Vader has never fully defeated his former master on screen to this point.

Now, I know that Obi-Wan didn’t exactly hold his own in the latest duel, and it’s up for debate as to who won their final fight in A New Hope, but I feel that the “Chapter III” showdown was proof that Vader makes the same mistakes every time he faces his former master and fails to achieve his goal. So, let’s dive into what happened and what I think it demonstrates.
