Parking for the Soulless One only.

All others will be sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel, smashed into who knows what.


March 14th, 2018 (Pi day!)


OBI-WAN flies away from the planet Utapau in General Grievous's tiny Starfighter.


Kelly Anneken



  • Starts with Obi-Wan stealing a car, and ends with Artoo and C-3PO reunited at last.
  • Brief interlude with Anakin and Padme.


  • Referenced: Back to the Future.
  • His Jedi ship left without him, so he steals the Soulless One (General Grievous' car).
    • The ship Grievous arrived in was his business ship; this is his personal fighter.
  • Referenced: Another happy landing.
  • Which is your favorite Ewan McGregor Obi-Wan?
    • Kelly says Revenge of the Sith Obi-Wan is Peak Ewan McGregor. Referenced: Ewan's cable show "Long Way Round".
    • Ewan McGregor's acting succeeds against long odds. Compare with other actors in this film and in the other Prequels.
  • The regressive maternity leave policy on Naboo.
    • Alex's opinion is that queens having babies in secret is more dramatic than senators having babies in secret.
    • Why, from an out of universe storytelling perspective, is Padmé not the queen anymore?
  • Referenced: You wouldn't download a car.
  • Obi-Wan calling Space Jimmy Smits is inverse-parallel to Leia's message to Obi-Wan on behalf of her father.
    • Back-up messages in case the first one didn't work.
  • Mentioned: Alex was wrong from earlier, Pete edit that out.
