Will Leia be rescued from the Third Sister in Obi-Wan Kenobi Ep 4?

Will Leia be rescued from the Third Sister in Obi-Wan Kenobi Ep 4?

We all know that Darth Vader is a bad guy through and through, but we still can’t help but rejoice when he finally makes his debut on Obi-Wan Kenobi. Since viewers were tipped off about this arrival in the previous episode, what came as a real shocker is that while Vader is stealing thunder, the Third Sister actually manages to re-kidnap Leia.

So what is going to happen to Leia now? Will she ever be able to return home safely?

It has been established in the Star Wars lore that Leia spends her teen years on Alderaan. So despite being captured by the Third Sister in Obi-Wan Kenobi Ep 3, expect her to get rescued in one of the last three episodes.

Let’s do a little recap of what happens in Ep 3: The ship that Obi-Wan and Leia escape in lands on Mapuzo that is under the Empire’s hold. But the Jedi has a contact there who may be able to offer them safe passage… It’s just that, that contact doesn’t arrive on time.

He takes the matter into his own hands and risks using an Imperial ride. While it seems to be going tense-but-fine for a while, at a security check-point the driver betrays the two of the them.

Here’s where we get an action-packed sequence with Stormtroopers and even the first appearance of the much-anticipated Darth Vader!

Obi-Wan’s contact Tala finally arrives on scene and tries to take Leia to safety through a tunnel. But upon seeing that Obi-Wan may be finished off if she doesn’t help him, Tala leaves Leia to go back to the fight.

Together, Obi-Wan and Tala manage to distract Vader and get away from him, but there’s another cliff hanger waiting for us at the end of the episode: The Third Sister catches Leia at the end of the tunnel.

Is this the end for Leia? Not quite. We already know she spends her teen years in Alderaan. So, she will make it out of this abduction safely and return to her home planet. What’s left to see is how.

Now while one theory is that it will be Obi-Wan who rescues her, some fans believe that the Third Sister may reconsider her alliance with Darth Vader, even letting Leia go free in the process.

Since the story has focused on how obsessed the Third Sister is with getting rid of Jedis, this might be an interesting turn of events. We’re halfway through Obi-Wan Kenobi with only three more episodes to go — Let’s see what episode 4 brings!
