After the Supreme Chancellor was kidnapped by General Grievous, leader of the droid army, Obi-Wan and Anakin led a daring rescue mission. They battled their way to Grievous’ ship, and gained entrance to the control tower where they once again dueled Count Dooku. While Dooku was able to defeat Obi-Wan, nearly killing him, he could not best Anakin. At the urging of Chancellor Palpatine, the young Jedi beheaded the Sith Lord. Anakin carried an unconscious Obi-Wan on his back, and the three returned to Coruscant.
In the galactic capital, the Jedi had become wary of Palpatine. He appointed Anakin to be his representative on the Council, which the Jedi only allowed so that the prophesied Chosen One could secretly report on all the Chancellor’s dealings. It was Obi-Wan who gave Anakin this assignment, and it strained their friendship. Shortly thereafter, Obi-Wan was dispatched to Utapau, where he found General Grievous. The enemies engaged in lightsaber combat and Obi-Wan eventually destroyed the droid army leader with a more “uncivilized” weapon, shooting the Jedi hunter’s organic innards with a blaster pistol. But then, something strange happened. Obi-Wan’s clone troopers betrayed him, opening fire seemingly without cause. The clones had been issued Order 66 -- the extermination of all Jedi -- from the Supreme Chancellor, who in reality was Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Obi-Wan survived, however, and made contact with Yoda, though no other Jedi had reported back. The two returned to Coruscant to jam a signal that was laying a trap for Order 66 survivors, telling all to stay away from the capital. Successful, Obi-Wan looked at a security hologram to see who led the slaughter of Jedi within the Temple; he was overcome with grief and regret to find that it was Anakin, now a dark side convert called Darth Vader.
Yoda assigned Obi-Wan to deal with Anakin, who had left Coruscant for the lava planet Mustafar. Both powerful and evenly matched, the two former friends dueled to a stalemate until Anakin attempted to leap over his old Master, which Obi-Wan warned him not to try. The new Sith, filled with rage and hubris, ignored these pleas; Obi-Wan severed his legs and arm. Heartbroken, Obi-Wan left Anakin to his fate on the banks of a lava river. The Jedi Order vanquished and the galaxy under Sith rule, Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Senator Bail Organa devised a plan: they would split up the children of Anakin and Padmé, who had died in childbirth, and protect them from the Emperor. Bail would adopt the girl, Leia, and raise her as his own; Obi-Wan would take the boy, Luke, to his family on Tatooine, where he would watch over him. When the time was right, he would reveal to Luke his true origins, and train him to be a Jedi.
THE DARK TIMES
We get it, homework is hard. But we have to give these kids credit. Instead of throwing in the towel or following the worksheet norm -- also known as "the directions" -- they got creative. They did it their way, and boy, are we glad they did.
