As if we didn't already love Obi-Wan Kenobi anyway, the final episode cleared up a lot of plot holes from the prequels.
The series was certainly full of nostalgia, with Kenobi even uttering his iconic 'hello there' line from the start of A New Hope, perfectly tying the miniseries into the fan-favourite films.
But that's not the only line fans were happy to hear, because the finale also improved on some dialogue from the early films.
This includes Kenobi telling Luke in A New Hope that Darth Vader had killed and betrayed his father, only to have to pull a sneaky backtrack in Return of the Jedi.
Why did he backtrack? Well, unless, you've been hiding under a rock for the past 40 years, you'll know that in The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader is revealed to be Luke's father, birthing one of the best moments in movie history, and a series of drunk impressions that we're actually a little sick of.
That is until the new Disney+ mini-series, which saw a show-down between Kenobi and Vader that vastly improved the slip-up.
During the final fight of the new series, Kenobi apologises to Anakin for leaving him to die, however, Vader says that it was actually he who killed Anakin.
This absolves Kenobi of his guilt and leads to him telling Luke that Vader killed his father in the first film, which is a way better explanation than Kenobi saying that what he told Luke was 'true in a way' in Return of the Jedi.
The finale didn't just clear up just that line though – it also explains why Kenobi consistently refers to Vader as just 'Darth' in A New Hope.
At the end of the series, Kenobi finally accepts that Anakin is gone, completely removed from the Sith Lord – Darth Vader – stood before him.
So, at the end of their duel, he says 'goodbye, Darth' for the first time, not Anakin or Padawan, meaning that he finally considers them two separate beings, and this carries through into A New Hope.
The series didn't stop there in clearing things up – you know Darth Vader's infamous scar? Well, it turns out it was Obi-Wan that gave it to him, making this arguably the best Star Wars spin-off series we've ever seen.
But will we get a second season? You can bet that you'll know as soon as we do.
