Bad writing?
 
2022-06-15 11:34:51 PM  
Getting stabbed in the gut is super easy, barely an inconvenience if you run on dark side rage
 
2022-06-15 11:45:27 PM  
I mean Vader survived only a flesh wound.
 
2022-06-15 11:48:11 PM  
I was kinda hoping he was dead... and then we'd see him replaced by his equally evil brother. Who would actually be played by Jason Isaacs (who voiced the same character in Rebels).

That said... his death in Rebels was WAY more metal than what happened to him in Obi-Wan.

I'm completely on board with rage fuelled refusal to die. It plays nicely in to the dark side suposedly being corrupting, overpowering anger. Works better than just repeatedly showing dark side users being mildly pissy, but mostly bog standard evil doers.

However, he took and survived that blow merely to establish that the inevitible repeat of the "finishing" move would not be an instakill, making both him and Vader double dumbasses for not finishing the job.

The Inquisitor? Oh smeg

I have some misgivings as to the level of direct involvement Leia has with Obi Wan given the R2 message... thats really my only gripe. But when that second ship took off, I couldn't believe it. You could see Hayden seething with that mask on. I never though I could see someone in that garb emote like that. It was crazy.
 
2022-06-16 12:27:34 AM  
I mean Maul got chopped n half and he got better. I just assume no one is dead unless you see them disappear like Obi-Wan.

Vader and the Grand Inquisitor did not think she was worth killing. Reva wasn't a threat to them, just an insignificant tool to them.

Reva was merely a plastic fork in a pre-made salad, one use and discarded.

So he survived because he's a non-human with two stomachs and endless rage? Does that mean if an angry cow turned to the Dark Side, it would be nigh unkillable?

That's not subtext that needs explaining, it's explicit. It doesn't change that she's survived completely foreseeably, even if only taking in to account the events of this show, and will add one more easily avoided failure to Vader's repertoire. The point was the Grand Inquisitor's only contribution to this story is to survive an otherwise fatal wound, so that the audience wouldn't balk at the Third Sister doing exactly the same. The creatives aren't going to even bother explaining it until the inevitible comic years later.

I loved the Vader scenes but the leaving alive in this case with that wound is an offshoot of the poor writing for the show. Vader just straight up snapped a kids neck for no reason. He's going to not finish the job with the snap of his fingers on a person who let Ben get away and attacked him?

I'm enjoying the show because of the overall idea and loving the Ben-Vader stuff but not sure if they should use this writer/showrunner again. It is just the mass of random plot holes hurts it from being really something great.

People in the Star Wars universe should know that what kills your species might not kill another especially if there is access to super duper medical care or they have the force. Chop their head i teo assuming that is where there species has their brain. And if the fight can be predicted, then read up about their biology beforehand.

This. Did they not notice how Vader toyed with her?

I really wish they had just gone with a new character for Grand Inquisitor in the obi wan series and let him die. It's going to be hard seeing him in Rebels with same level of menace after the terrible performance here and being so easily beaten by a subordinate.
 
2022-06-16 8:38:44 AM  
Mostly dead is a trope in SW writing. Hell, Boba Fett was the biggest example for years until he was officially brought back.

Also, anyone who's a fan should realize that promotion in the Empire is a roller coaster changing spot

I think she was left alive because they aren't done using her.   This just gave her another reason to be pissed at Kenobi and they'll use that...again... to find him through her.

Then there is the fact that Vader knew she wasn't dead as a child so I also wonder if he sensed the darkside in her and let her live, in both cases, to let that anger grow.  This could be the way to create a spin-off series.

There was some rumor that she was supposed to die, but they changed the story to keep her around when they decided to do a second season.  I'd take that with a grain of salt, but it's certainly possible.

I have less a problem with plot armor than I do with Third Sister marching her army to the door of the hideout, using a Big Farkin Gun to blow it off it's hinges, and then just casually cutting it open with a light saber at the end.

Light sabers have become more magical than force users.   It seems there is no material outside of Mandosteele that it can't just cut holes in like a hot knife through butter.    Rather than the Death Star runs, the rebellion should have just dropped a bunch of astronauts with sabers on the surface and cut the thing into parts.

She has plot armor as strong as Vader and the Grand Inquisitor at this stage. She'll be back before the end of the series.

I like how the thumbnail is of a guy who survived a clean, straight lightsaber poke to the belly standing next to a guy who survived all four limb amputation and being set on fire and left for dead.
 
2022-06-16 11:16:42 AM  
This is just me...

How TF can Darth Vader force grab a ship and stop it from trying to leave a planet, yet can't finish off 3rd Sister in with a force grab and then rip her in half?  He's not patient and shouldn't be playing cat and mouse with 3rd Sister or Obi Wan.

In real life, you are more likely to survive losing limbs or being burned than suffering major internal injuries, but people get shot to pieces all the time in movies and then get back on their feet with no lingering issues after a couple days of bed rest. Forget sci-fi, we're used to seeing magic regenerative healing powers on supposedly realistic cop shows. The real shock isn't when important characters come back from seemingly fatal injuries, but when they stay dead.

They go out of their way to show them reinforcing the door with what looks like a beam? And it's only after that beam is cut through by the lightsaber does the door open.

I thought it was very dumb, for several reasons - but they did do a visual explanation.

Why I thought it was dumb: every other instance of a blast door we've seen throughout nearly all of SW media, yes a lightsaber can "cut" through it, but it's a very slow cut, that takes time: See: Phantom Menace (when Qui-Gon tries to go after Trade Federation leadership) see: ANH when Vader is cut off by the door and a ton of these things happening in the animated series.

So this goes to say to me: a reinforced blast door is weaker than a normal blast door. All they needed to do was have Reva try to murder Obi-Wan with the shot through the door, back off, and shoot one or two more shots at the door and bam, done deal in line with the entire universe.

The Marvel comics were never canon, and plenty of Star Wars characters are dead, dead, deadski forever and evers. Ben Skywalker, Jaina and Jacen and Anakin Solo, they're so dead it's like they never were!
