Since Leia Organa (Vivien Lyra Blair) has been captured by Reva, Obi-Wan goes to Nur to save her from the Empire. Unlike before, Kenobi has finally begun to get back in the swing of things with his lightsaber skills and force abilities.

When the Jedi Master is searching for Leia, he finds out what the Inquisitors have hidden in their fortress. A tomb of dead Jedi. While fans were hoping to see some iconic Jedi, Kenobi finds a familiar Clone Wars Jedi that helped Ahsoka Tano find her lightsaber. Tera Sinube.

This old Jedi sadly didn’t survive against the Inquisitors, but fans were shocked that of all of the Jedi to be seen, Star Wars chose to use this seemingly unknown Jedi as the big cameo. Obi-Wan also ends up finding a corpse of a youngling from the Jedi Temple here which was also unexpected and messed up. Later on, you can also spot Coleman Kcaj who was on the Jedi Council, but the character never spoke in any Star Wars project.

Some fans were shocked to see the two in the tomb as this wasn’t the Clone Wars reference they were expecting:

I was fine and dandy til they showed Tera Sinube & the youngling

rip Tera Sinube i guess 🙁

That is Tera Sinube, he helped Ashoka get her light saber back in the clone wars series. The episode title was “Light Saber Lost”. He’s seen better days.

Other fans were horrified after seeing the youngling in the tomb:

vader’s targeting of younglings and how we see it continue to play out, the parallel from anakin facing the younglings to obi-wan seeing the tomb of a youngling im so unbelievably horrified

Other fans pointed out that one of the Jedi Council’s members, Coleman Kcaj was also shown to be in the tomb:

And is that Jedi Master Coleman Kcaj? Poor guy was a master on the council but never had any lines and was always in the background bahhaha!

Coleman Kcaj my boy

While this wasn’t a Clone Wars flashback like fans were expecting, it definitely is horrifying knowing that the Inquisitors keep the bodies of the dead Jedi. This does make sense as the Empire does use the body of Luminara Unduli to snare Jedi as seen in Star Wars: Rebels.

With only two more episodes, fans are hoping to see more of Obi-Wan in action and to have more time with Anakin/Darth Vader since fans have barely seen Hayden Christensen. With the prequels being such a big focus in the series, it also feels like a Clone Wars flashback should be imminent, but fans are beginning to get concerned that Obi-Wan Kenobi won’t include one.
