The following article contains spoilers for episode four of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This week’s episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi turned to the dark side of the force, venturing deep into a mysterious Imperial base, revealing a haunting secret.
We journeyed to Fortress Inquisitorius, which is located underwater on the moon of Nur and will be familiar to players of video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Not only does the Inquistors’ heavily guarded headquarters make its live-action debut in episode four of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but its dark secret is also uncovered.
Let’s break it all down.
The Jedi Tomb
Tasked with tracking down Jedi, the Inquisitors bring their prisoners to this fortress where they are tortured for information. But what happens to these captives following the interrogations?
The answer is they are moved to a creepy tomb, which Obi-Wan stumbles upon in this week’s episode. It isn’t totally clear if these Jedi prisoners are alive or dead, but we are guessing it’s likely to be the latter.
Their bodies are floating in suspending animation in individual chambers appearing to be preserved, maybe as trophies for the Inquisitors and the Empire.
Or are the intentions more nefarious? As we learnt from movie The Rise Of Skywalker and its novelisation, Palpatine cheated death via creating the force-sensitive clone body of Snoke.
This clone was part of his plan to find a route to immortality and at the time Obi-Wan Kenobi takes place, Palpatine’s experiments are likely already underway.
Could these Jedi bodies be a part of this? If you recall season two of The Mandalorian featured a similar scene showing us a chamber filled with what looked to be Snoke bodies.
It does appear the small screen shows are both part of this bigger mystery…
Which Jedi Are In The Tomb?
Although many bodies are discovered within the tomb, there appears to be only one familiar face – Tera Sinube, a Jedi Master from the Clone Wars animated show.
For those unfamiliar with that series, Sinube sat on the Jedi High Council before the Invasion Of Naboo, then becoming an expert on all things crime on Coruscant.
Whilst on that planet Sinube also trained younglings, which might explain how he ended up in the this tomb as the body of a child is near his.
