The Hilarious Tatooine Detail Obi-Wan Kenobi Fans Just Can't Ignore

Disney+ has now released the Part VI finale of the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" limited series, and everything seems to come to a fitting conclusion with the future "Star Wars" canon still intact. During the episode, Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) decides to face Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) alone after the Imperial Star Cruiser that is pursuing himself and the insurgents starts to get too close. Simultaneously, Reva (Moses Ingram) recovers from her wounds at the hands of Vader and pursues Owen (Joel Edgerton) and Luke (Grant Feely) on Tatooine after discovering Luke's existence at the end of Episode 5. Obi-Wan nearly dies at the hands of Vader but recovers, having the opportunity to kill him. Upon discovering that Anakin is truly gone, he walks away, quickly learning that Luke is in danger.

Owen and Beru (Bonnie Piesse) do their best to protect Luke from Reva, but she ultimately is given the opportunity to kill Luke after he falls unconscious down a rock formation. However, Reva is unable to go through with killing Luke out of revenge on Vader — returning him to Owen, Beru, and a concerned Obi-Wan. Reva is in tears, as she almost killed a youngling just as Vader did her friends all those years ago, asking Obi-Wan if she has become like him, to which he responds that her choice of mercy means she hasn't.

Obi-Wan proceeds to tell Reva that she is now able to decide who she wants to be. Reva then does something to indicate her freedom that actually adds to a detail fans have come to notice about Tatooine.

There sure are many lightsabers buried on Tatooine

In a recent Reddit thread, fans of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" and the "Star Wars" universe noticed a funny detail about Reva's change of heart at the end of Episode 6 as she seemingly buried her Inquisitor lightsaber in the sands of Tatooine. Apparently, there have now been multiple lightsabers buried on Tatooine over the years, as u/bigbruin78 asked, "how many lightsabers are stowed on Tatooine?" u/your_mind_aches would respond that in total, five characters — Obi-Wan, Anakin, Luke, Leia, and Reva — have had their lightsabers buried there at some point in time. They went on to joke that Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong'o) probably was notified that lightsabers are often buried there and she subsequently "sent a dude with a metal detector and just happened to find it."

It certainly is true that lightsabers have been left there of the course of "Star Wars" features and television series, and fans even watched Rey bury Luke and Leia's sabers on Tatooine at the end of "Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker." At the beginning of "Obi-Wan Kenobi," it is clear that Obi-Wan had his buried there for some time as well. Given that Reva is now sans-lightsaber at the end, it will be interesting to see where her journey takes her if the series is given a second season. It could be likely as the door is seemingly open, with Ewan McGregor's comments on hoping for another season also worth mentioning (via Variety).
