Obi-Wan Kenobi (2022) s01e01 Episode Script

Part I

1 MACE: You refer to the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the Force.
You believe it's this boy? Anakin Skywalker, meet Obi-Wan Kenobi.
YODA: Clouded this boy's future is.
The boy is dangerous.
They all sense it.
Why can't you? An apprentice you have, Qui-Gon.
Impossible to take on a second.
- Obi-Wan is ready.
- I am ready to face the trials.
QUI-GON: You've been a good apprentice, Obi-Wan.
No! QUI-GON: I foresee you will become a great Jedi Knight.
Obi-Wan.
Promise me you will train the boy.
Yes, Master.
He will bring balance.
Master Yoda, I gave Qui-Gon my word.
YODA: Your apprentice Skywalker will be.
What took you so long? ANAKIN: Obi-Wan is a great mentor.
As wise as Master Yoda and as powerful as Master Windu.
PALPATINE: You are the most gifted Jedi I have ever met.
I see you becoming the greatest of all the Jedi.
ANAKIN: I feel lost.
Lost? What do you mean? ANAKIN: I'm not the Jedi I should be.
I want more.
And I know I shouldn't.
How do you know the ways of the Force? My mentor taught me everything about the Force.
Even the nature of the dark side.
Only through me can you achieve a power greater than any Jedi.
(GASPING) I can't.
Don't give up, Padmé.
PALPATINE: The power to save Padmé.
ANAKIN: I found a way to save you.
YODA: Twisted by the dark side young Skywalker has become.
The boy you trained, gone he is.
I will not kill Anakin.
This is the end for you, my master.
I have failed you, Anakin.
I have failed you.
It's over, Anakin.
I have the high ground.
You underestimate my power.
(ANAKIN SCREAMING) You were the Chosen One! It was said that you would destroy the Sith, not join them! He's still alive.
OBI-WAN: You were my brother, Anakin.
PALPATINE: You shall be known as Darth Vader.
PADMÉ: Obi-Wan? There's good in him.
(BREATHING HEAVILY) PALPATINE: Rise.
YODA: Hidden, safe the children must be kept.
OBI-WAN: We must take them somewhere where the Sith will not sense their presence.
My wife and I will take the girl.
We've always talked of adopting a baby girl.
PADMÉ: Leia.
And what of the boy? PADMÉ: Luke.
To Tatooine.
To his family send him.
I will take the child and watch over him.
YODA: In your solitude training I have for you.
Your old master.
How to commune with him I will teach you.
(WHOOSHING) (ALL GASPING) FEMALE YOUNGLING 1: This way! Quick! - (CLONE TROOPER GRUNTS) - (VELTI GRUNTS) Come on! Let's go! - MALE YOUNGLING: Let's go! - FEMALE YOUNGLING 1: This way! Come on! Let's go! - FEMALE YOUNGLING 1: This way.
- FEMALE YOUNGLING 2: Hurry! (VELTI GRUNTING) FEMALE YOUNGLING 1: Watch out! (CLONE TROOPER SCREAMS) Come on! Move! Quick! (VELTI GRUNTING) - Go.
Come on! Go.
Go! Go! - Run! This way! Hurry! (GRUNTING CONTINUES) (VELTI GROANING) FEMALE YOUNGLING 1: No! - (BLASTERS FIRING IN DISTANCE) - (JEDIS GRUNTING, GROANING) What do we do now? We run.
(JEDIS GROANING) PALPATINE: (ON SPEAKERS) Execute Order 66.
Execute Order 66.
Execute Order 66.
(WIND WHISTLING) (INDISTINCT CHATTER IN OTHER LANGUAGES) (SPACECRAFT WHOOSHING) (JAWAS SPEAKING JAWAESE) (ALL MURMURING INDISTINCTLY) (GROWLS) (GRAND INQUISITOR CLEARS THROAT) You know who we are.
Inquisitors.
You know what we do? You hunt Jedi.
In actuality, I would say the Jedi hunt themselves.
Do you know the key to hunting a Jedi, friend? It is patience.
Jedi cannot help what they are.
Their compassion leaves a trail.
For example, in our line of work, rumors run rampant.
Here's one I heard just recently.
It involves a Jedi hiding right here in your lovely saloon.
Let's say ours is a wanderer.
Maybe he's looking for people like him.
Comes across this establishment.
Nice place.
And then he sees you.
A man in need.
Perhaps the locals are stealing from you.
Threatening you.
So what is the Jedi to do? Help you and risk exposure? Or move on? Now, if he were smart, he'd keep moving, but the Jedi Code is like an itch.
He cannot help it.
So he steps in and saves your saloon.
You offer him a place to hide.
Fresh water, shade from the suns, but the stories, they begin and they travel quickly.
His compassion has been his undoing.
- (GRUNTS) - (GASPS) REVA: There.
- (NARI GRUNTING) - (PEOPLE GASPING) - (GROWLS) - (GRUNTING) (CROWD GASPING) Prepare him for interrogation.
You're wasting your time.
You know that, right? You'll never find us all.
- (GRUNTING) - (GROANING) - (GROANS) - (BREATHING HEAVILY) - (GRUNTS) - (CROWD EXCLAIMING) (CROWD MUTTERING) GRAND INQUISITOR: You are reckless.
Why chase after scraps? Scraps are all we have left.
Then we should be hunting bigger prey.
He is not yours to find.
We are past this, Third Sister.
I will not warn you again.
You will forget this fixation with Kenobi, or I will relieve you of your duties.
Is that clear? Yes, Grand Inquisitor.
(SOFTLY) Consider him forgotten.
(WIND WHOOSHING) (WORKERS CHATTERING INDISTINCTLY) (PANTING) (GRUNTS) (FOREMEN SHOUTING ORDERS) (INDISTINCT CHATTER CONTINUES) (WHISTLE BLOWING) (DROID SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) It's only half.
Please, I have a family.
(GROANS) One more word, I take it all.
Keep moving.
Something you want to say? - (MACHINE DINGS) - (COINS CLINKING) (SCOFFS) (FOREMAN SPEAKING OTHER LANGUAGE) (INDISTINCT CHATTER) (WORKERS SIGHING WEARILY) (EOPIE GRUNTS) (GRUNTING SOFTLY) (WHIRRING) (BEEPS) (WHIRRING) (IN JAWAESE) (IN JAWAESE) Do you have it? (IN JAWAESE) I'll give you I'll give you 50.
(IN JAWAESE) (VAPORATOR SPUTTERING) Yes, I had some parts stolen.
I need a new processor board.
(EXCLAIMING) (IN JAWAESE) Teeka, if you're gonna steal my parts and then sell them back to me, could you at least clean them first as a courtesy? (IN JAWAESE) A Jedi? (IN JAWAESE) (SCOFFS) Well, don't count on it.
I've heard the Jedi are all but extinct.
Here.
(IN JAWAESE) Well, thank you, Teeka.
Goodbye.
(TEEKA GRUNTS) (WHIRRING) PADMÉ: I know there's… OBI-WAN: You were my brother, Anakin! (BREATHING HEAVILY) - Promise me you will train the boy.
- (LAUGHING) PADMÉ: Obi-Wan - YODA: Only pain will you find.
- (QUINN GRUNTS) PADMÉ: There's good in him.
I know there's OBI-WAN: You were the Chosen One! (BABY WAILING) I hate you! - (PADMÉ SCREAMS) - (WHOOSHING) (INHALES SHARPLY) (BREATHING HEAVILY) (GRUNTS SOFTLY) (BREATHING HEAVILY) Master Qui-Gon.
Master? (SIGHING) (CHITTERING) (EOPIE BELLOWING) (EOPIE GRUNTS) OWEN: Grab two of those canisters.
(WHIRRING) Luke? (WHIRS) Luke! Luke! Did he go back inside? He's run off.
Luke? BERU: Luke? OWEN: Luke? - (PLAYFUL CHATTER) - (BERU LAUGHS) (EOPIE GRUNTING) (RUSTLING) (SMALL ROCKS FALLING) MAN: Master.
I thought I saw you in the town, but I wasn't sure.
I didn't think you'd survived.
You're making some kind of mistake.
I'm sorry, my name is Nari.
Um, there's no mistake.
You're looking for somebody else.
What are you doing here, Obi-Wan? My name is Ben.
NARI: Come on, please.
Please.
You have no idea what I've been through.
You must leave.
You'll draw too much attention.
But I have nowhere to go.
They're hunting me.
You have to help me.
You want my help? Take this.
Walk into the middle of the desert and bury it in the ground.
Stay hidden.
Live a normal life.
What about the people that need us? What about the fight? The fight is done.
We lost.
What happened to you? You were once a great Jedi.
The time of the Jedi is over.
Go back to the town.
Let it go.
We're going to be late.
Come on, let's hurry it along.
How is she doing? She's ready? Great.
Thank you.
Remember, my sister's whole family is coming.
We need their support.
So try not to make anyone cry.
There will be sweetmallows at the reception after.
If you behave, I will let you She insisted you would find it amusing, Your Highness.
She's either in the cellar, in the kitchen (SIGHS) or in the woods.
(DROID CHIRPING) (CHIRPING) (SPACECRAFT WHIRRING) Medical freighter.
Pleasure barge, boring.
(SAD CHIRP) Casino ship? Not bad.
(CHIRPS IN AGREEMENT) Ooh.
A Tri-wing.
That's a new one.
(CHIRPS EXCITEDLY) Ooh.
An Aquillian Ranger.
Probably scouting for Merson pirates.
(CHIRPS) No? Trader, maybe? BREHA: Leia Organa! You had to do this today? Do what? Down.
(CHIRPS NERVOUSLY) It is like raising a Glor-ag.
No Lola for the rest of the day.
But she didn't do anything.
Shut her down.
I mean it.
(LOLA DEACTIVATES) If you behaved as well as you climb, you'd be a senator already.
(SIGHS) (SIGHS) You'll have to change in the speeder.
Come.
It's not like anyone would miss me if I wasn't there.
I'd miss you.
All I ever do is wave.
BREHA: Then do more than wave.
You get out of this what you put into it.
LEIA: I'm sorry, Mother.
I really am.
I promise I won't do it again.
(SIGHS) You know, I can feel you doing that.
Come on.
LEIA: It's like living in a prison.
BREHA: A prison? (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING) - (WHISTLE BLOWING) - (WORKERS CHATTERING WEARILY) (WHOOSHING) (INDISTINCT CHATTER) (CLATTERS) I want you to stay away from him.
We don't need anything from you, Ben.
It's just a toy.
It's a lot more than that.
There's more to life than your farm, Owen.
He needs to see that.
There's a whole galaxy out there.
I'm asking you to leave us alone, Ben.
I mean it.
Is he okay? You don't care if he's okay.
You care if he's showing.
He's my responsibility, Owen.
- I'm his uncle.
- We talked about this.
When the time comes, he must be trained.
Like you trained his father? Anakin is dead, Ben, and I won't let you make the same mistake twice.
So, leave him on the farm with his family, where he belongs.
MAN: Move.
Now.
- (CROWD MURMURING) - Get back.
All of you.
Out of the way.
Back up.
You know why we are here.
There is a Jedi hiding on this planet.
We need to know where he is.
You will be rewarded well.
Or you'll be punished! FIFTH BROTHER: Reva! Hands go first! That way, when you reach for anything, you think of us.
WOMAN: This is the Outer Rim.
You have no rights here.
We're not under the Empire's - (WOMAN SCREAMING) - (CROWD GASPING, EXCLAIMING) REVA: All we want is information.
If anyone knows anything about a Jedi You know something? What's your name? Owen.
REVA: Owen.
Farmer, right? Wife? Kids? My family's of no concern to you.
They might be.
- You got a Jedi on that farm, too? - No.
Why should I believe you? I have no love for the Jedi.
Jedi are vermin.
I kill vermin on my farm.
You protect your family.
I like that, Owen.
It's important.
You think you could protect them from me? (SCOFFS) (SHOUTING) Tell me where the Jedi is, or this man and his family die! (CROWD GASPING) The Jedi are cowards.
They failed you, abandoned you.
There is no point in protecting them.
They would not do the same for you.
But you can save this man.
- Save his family.
- (LIGHTSABER ACTIVATES) (CROWD GASPING) FIFTH BROTHER: Enough! If you remember anything, rewards will be given.
Stand down, Third Sister.
Now! (LIGHTSABER DEACTIVATES) Next time, Owen.
(CROWD MURMURING) FIFTH BROTHER: Ah! Move.
(BREATHING HEAVILY) (BOTH GRUNT) You are too impulsive.
I'm sick of wasting time! This place is beneath us! The Grand Inquisitor was right.
You still want Kenobi.
But he's gone, and you won't find him.
We spent the last ten years looking for him.
Maybe you've been looking in the wrong places.
What is it you think you will gain by capturing him? What I'm owed.
Be careful, Third Sister.
You go too far.
Maybe you don't go far enough.
- (WHOOSHING) - (CROWD MURMURING) Thank you, Owen.
(SCOFFS) I didn't do it for you.
(WHOOSHING) Right on time as always.
Anything good today? A trade ship and an Aquillian Ranger.
Probably scouring for pirates.
That's what I said.
- Don't encourage her.
- All right.
Come now.
Let's get this over with.
(LIVELY CHATTER) - Breha.
- Sister.
- BAIL: Greetings.
- LEIA: Hi, cousin.
MAN: Princess.
- WOMAN: Oh, there they are.
(LAUGHS) - (CROWD CHEERING) MAN 2: Princess.
MAN 3: Hi, Princess.
(LIVELY CHATTER) KAYO: Profits have been good.
After the disaster of the Republic, the Empire is finally lining some pockets.
There are still some issues that we need to address.
Slave labor, taxation of the Outer Rim I didn't come here to end slavery, Bail.
I came to eat your food.
(CHUCKLES) Save the bleeding heart for the Senate.
A drink, Senator? (SIGHS) - Ah.
Thank you.
- (ALIEN SPEAKING OTHER LANGUAGE) (C-3PO TRANSLATING IN OTHER LANGUAGE) Y-O: Your Highness.
Oh.
Thanks, Y-O.
Y-O: My pleasure.
(SCOFFS) You thank your droids? It's good manners.
You don't need manners when you're talking to a lower life form.
Then I guess I don't need manners when I'm talking to you.
(CHUCKLES) You know the difference between you and me, cousin? I know things.
My father says they never let you leave this planet.
They don't want anybody to know about you because you're not one of us.
You're not even a real Organa.
(SCOFFS) You're scared of him.
Your father.
You want him to like you, so you repeat what he says even though you don't really know what it means.
You think being like him will make people frightened of you, but really, you're the one who's scared.
You've never made one decision for yourself in your entire life, and you never will.
I may not have seen much, cousin, but I can see that.
He was being horrible to everyone.
He's your cousin.
He's rude to droids.
You have to rise above, Leia.
You owe him an apology.
I'd rather be digested by a jakobeast.
BAIL: I wanted to live out way past Kathou when I was your age.
Chase purrgil, you know? I had a whole plan.
What happened? I got older.
Had to find some other adventures.
Started chasing your mother instead.
This is your future, Leia.
In a few years, you'll be off to university, then Junior Senate.
LEIA: The Senate's boring.
It's people in itchy clothes arguing.
(LAUGHING) Well, it may seem so I don't want to be a senator.
It is why you'll probably be one of the best.
I'm not even a real Organa.
What? Don't ever say that.
You are our child.
You are an Organa in every way.
One day, this planet will look to you, Leia.
There are many ways to lead.
You just have to find yours.
Plus, imagine the look on your cousin's face when you get to boss him around for real.
(BOTH LAUGH) But for now, we will apologize.
Yes, Father.
Hmm.
I'll wait for you downstairs.
(LEIA SIGHS) Thank you.
She's gone.
I thought you said you've really got through to her.
You know what she's like.
I know who she's like.
Send a unit.
She can't be far.
VECT: Hello, Princess.
Why are you here? Just waiting.
For what? For you.
(GASPS) (LEIA PANTING) (ALL PANTING) (GRUNTING) (GRUNTS) (SHOUTING) (GROANS) LEIA: Help! Help! (PANTING) Help! Help me, please! (GROANS) (PANTING) (DEVICE BEEPING) We don't know who it was.
No ransom, no leads.
Whoever they are, they knew where she would be.
They They were waiting.
(CLEARS THROAT) She needs you, Obi-Wan.
We can't trust anyone else.
What about the Senate? BAIL: We cannot let this become public.
It would draw too much attention.
Well, your guard then? Or a bounty hunter? Only you know how important she really is, Obi-Wan.
If Leia is discovered I can't leave here, Bail.
My duty is to the boy What about your duty to his sister? She's as important as he is.
(SIGHS) It's been ten years.
I'm not who I used to be.
Find someone else.
She'll be better off.
(WHOOSHING) LEIA: (GRUNTING) Let go of me! - Let go! - Shut her up.
(MERCENARY AND LEIA GRUNTING) (MERCENARY LAUGHING MANIACALLY) - (WHISTLE BLOWS) - (WORKERS CHATTERING) (CROWD GASPING, MURMURING) (MAN SOBBING) (WHIRRING) BAIL: She's headed for Daiyu.
You should not have come.
They hid their signature behind a freight transport.
The ship is on its way there now.
I can't.
She's my daughter, Obi-Wan.
I told you I'm not the man you remember.
You're going to have to be! I can't leave the boy.
This isn't about the boy, and you know it! You've made mistakes.
We all did.
It's the past.
Move on.
Be done with it.
You couldn't save Anakin, but you can save her.
And what if I can't? There is no one I trust more with my child than you.
Please, old friend.
For her.
One last fight.
(WHOOSHING) Come on, Lola.
Come on.
(LOLA ACTIVATES) (LOLA CHIRPING) (SHUSHING) Can you untie me? (DOOR OPENS) I'm not afraid of you.
(SCOFFS) Give it time.
(CHIRPING) Lola! (LOLA DEACTIVATES) My father will rescue me! He'll send a whole army! No one's coming for you.
(DOOR CLOSING) (EOPIE GRUNTING) (LEIA GRUNTING) This is a bad idea.
Kidnapping kids you think it's gonna work? Just get this over with.
(SYSTEM BEEPS) You sure he's gonna come? REVA: He fought beside her father during the war.
He'll come.
He won't be able to help it.
The Jedi will hunt himself.
(INDISTINCT CHATTER IN OTHER LANGUAGE ON PA) Well? You coming or not? (THEME MUSIC PLAYING)
