Masters and Apprentices

Obi-Wan and Anakin: While Obi-Wan and Anakin were like brothers, Obi-Wan left his apprentice to die on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith. Kenobi is, understandably, struggling with that guilt when we first see him in this series. He has nightmares and cannot connect with his former Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, who has transcended into a Force ghost. Obi-Wan taps into his knowledge of his former apprentice in Part Five when he strategically uses Anakin’s impatience and occasional recklessness to get families of The Path to safety and off Jabiim.
