    I mean, I think it's kinda' obvious the 3rd sister is probably a former disgraced or captured padawan, and very likely Vader's personal agent, so it's not far fetched that she would know about the whole Anakin thing.

    The Mediocre
    -Grand Inquisitors introduction: isn't there a better way to deliver this info without explaining it to some rando in a bar?
    -Grand Inquisitor/Reva fight: seems contrived he would try to knock her down a peg when the guy whose capture will give them a 2000 Space Buck bonus from Lord Vadar is right fucking there.
    - Obi Wan doesn't want anything to do with the Jedi. He doesnt intervene to help the guy who got stiffed. He tells the other Jedi to fuck off. Then he wants to train Luke? I get that's his only priority, still seems a tad emotionally inconsistent to me that in one scene Obi Wan emphasizes "the fight is over", then wants to train Luke to be a Jedi...to what end? It feels a Luke in the Last Jedi would be apposite here as a starting point for Obi Wan, a guy who has given up on the Jedi and is running out the clock in some cave.
    -Leia thinking Obi Wan was a bad guy felt like it happened for no other reason so he could save her with the Force.

    (1) it's a pet peeve of mine when oppressive baddies trying to look intimidating start arguing in front of the locals because the film crew didn't realize this looks bad, and you should go somewhere private first- so good job for not doing that!
    The GI literally explained to you in the episode why... there are no major jedi left (that they know of) so they are left hunting inexperienced padawans.
    That whole scene was basically about an inquisitor squad with a new rookie in tow, but that rookie is abit more unhinged than they expect... we dont know why yet, but strong theory is that SHE was one of those kids at the opening scene.

    Once again she is unhinged so the GI didnt expect her to be that petty.

    Obi-Wan knows exactly what hes doing... and us knowing the films already we should know that Luke is going to end the sith. Thats how the whole prophecy went down... Anakin was the chosen one to have a child who would be able to put a stop to the sith once and for all. It all began with Anakin the force-child.
    So thats why its important Luke gets trained.

    Leia thinking Obi-Wan was a bad guy made perfect sense... she has never met him before remember? shes just been kidnapped by randoms and now another random is trying to take her away from those other randoms, and then she sees a wanted poster of this new random... it makes sense she would run from someone who is WANTED.
    Not that difficult to see the reasoning. :P

    There voices were similar, and you didn't see him close up at first. Plus his voice was heavily modulated, his face widened with the stupid hat, and it had a very Wong-sounding tone to it. But it was clear it wasn't him after we saw him close up and heard him speak more. Nevermind that he's a fanboy and very prolific thanks to playing Wong, so really easy to assume he could have been cast in the show.

    But hey, why assume a simple answer when you can call someone a racist, amirite?

    Here's your answer.

    Let's say, considering his post history, I came to a conclusion and clearly I'm not the only one.

    His identity is a secret, he becomes threatening to Thrawn when he begins conflating Anakin and Vader as the same person and he has killed less useful people for becoming aware of his former identity.

    I thought that at first but then remember she is strong with the force like anakin as a child so has really good reactions. The force guides as well so it could be making her go on the "best" route to avoid. Any way am just guessing

    I don't hate or love the scene but your post reminded me of something I read. Ahsoka was leading troopers in a war at the age of 14, of course Leia can outrun a couple of mooks.

    That seems like it has more to do with him not wanting to be associated with that name anymore rather than a desire to keep it secret.

    You also have to remember that the Empire stated Anakin Skywalker was dead as well. Given everything we know, saying Vader's identity is a secret is the only thing that makes sense. And just because Vader does not wish to associate with the name does not preclude it from also being a secret. If there is part of my past I would not wish to associate with, I would not want others to find out about it. Thus making it a secret because I want to keep that part hidden from others.

    You'll never get a proper answer to that, and it might not be as binary as people here would like.

    Most likely, Vader simply doesn't want to associate himself with Anakin anymore. The most obvious reason is probably because Anakin doesn't come without Padmé. There are plenty of individuals who worked out who he was and lived - most prominently and recently Thrawn. Thrawn got to live because he was a) clever enough to not state the obvious, and b) was a highly valued tool for Vaders Master.

    That being said, there are plenty of reasons why Reva knows who Anakin is. The two most obvious ones are that she knows him from her Padawan/Youngling times, and her not being too smart a cookie, telling everyone, because she's one cocky SOB. Another might be that Vader told her himself, because he wants her to drop this name here and there to lure out Obi-Wan. Her goal seems to be to capture Obi-Wan, not kill him, like that former Jedi in Anchorhead. Maybe Vader found out she found out and gave her a chance to live, by finding Obi-Wan. If not, end of the road for Reva.

    I'd wait and see why she knows before being too concerned or angry about it. Plenty of time to be upset that 'some rando knows' if the show never gives us a good reason.

    I'm guessing it's just a privileged secret that only the highest ranking people know, and yes even the worst inquisitor is high ranking.

    Inquisitors were fine (they are Sith, with all the grandiose flaws), even the grand one (I don't think he's dead, in Rebels he told that there is fate worse than death, and Boba Fett taught us that it's very easy to cyborg someone back to life)

    Obi-wan flashing lightsaber after telling the other jedi to bury it - STUPID

    10 yo Leia outrunning 3 adults who could get her like several times but chose not to - SUPER WEIRD. Maybe D. Chow liked that chase scene from Boba. Also the thugs acted silly. I even thought it's a kiddy show for a moment there.

    I hope the Leia angle ends up being just a link to Leia asking General Kenobi to be her only hope in the New Hope. Like this is how they know each other. I don't want this to be the Leia Show. But it seems it's gonna be Baby Yoda Season of Mandalorian but with Kenobi and Leia.

    Obi-wan flashing his lightsaber again on a more populated planet - SUPER STUPID

    I liked how he Kenobied his way around though - reminded me of the Animated Kenobi a lot. At least with Kenobi we have a decent performance.

    The con-jedi was interesting, I hope he's ok. Might be the beginning of the rebellion stuff.

    I also wanna know what beef does the "whatever number" sister have with Kenobi. Seems very personal.
    All right, gentleperchildren, let's review. The year is 2022 - that's two-zero-two-two, as in the 21st Century's perfect vision - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of double-masked tripple-jabbed sissies who stand with Ukraine.

    If you've seen the two episodes already:

    Ewan acted learning about Anakin perfectly. His collapsing, utterly terrified and pained expression felt in another league entirely compared to the rest of the show so far.

    I greatly disliked "how" he learned, however. From a badly acted character we are indifferent about in flatly delivered lines. It's like she's watched the prequels and comes to gloat at Obiwan. The three inquisitors look like idiots with anger management issues, which I guess puts them correctly in the position of "Disney villains". The whole thing of walking around the streets looking for Jedi is just stupid.

    Asajj Ventress was a so much better female villain than this confused fake-angry girl.

    I kept thinking, whenever this new inquisitor was on screen, that I'd much have preferred the inquisitor girl from Fallen Order. Or someone Asajj Ventress-y. They had actual characters to base this new one on with a lot of reference material for what made them compelling. Instead... They went with whatever the heck this is

    Fixed that for you. Like...Palpatine literally had an evil monster voice that he put on (and then just started using full-time at the end of ep.III) whenever he was around people who knew who he was.
