"Friends and Enemies" is the second of a four-part arc in which Obi-Wan Kenobi goes deep undercover with a couple of bounty hunters scheming to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine.  Last week, Kenobi, disguised as Rako Hardeen, escaped from prison with Cad Bane and Moralo Eval.  This week, he's struggling to earn the trust of his new associates.  Bane is especially suspicious.

The fugitive trio make their way to Nal Hutta, crash-landing the ship to throw their pursuers off the trail.  They head to the Bilbousa Bazaar to resupply a new ship.  Meanwhile, Anakin and Ahsoka, still believing that Obi-Wan is dead, are out for revenge.

Pablo, a Rodian with an awfully pedestrian name for a Star Wars character, is the owner of a pawnshop where Bane and company stop for weapons.  "Friends and Enemies" marks his only appearance in the Star Wars universe.  He is voiced by Matt Lanter.

Next week: "The Box."

  1. You know, crashing a ship on purpose always seems incredibly foolish to me. And no one ever dies when they do it, which seems very suspicious to me.

    1. Definitely a "don't try this at home" scenario.

  2. While I have no idea you are writing about, but I enjoy it.

    We went to see Rogue One, loved it. Answers a lot of questions.

    1. I enjoyed it, too: four out of five stars for me. I doubt it would be enough to hook someone into the franchise on its own but it's certainly a fun romp for the devoted.

  3. Revenge can drive a story. I'm intrigued.

    1. Certainly true. Revenge plays an unusual role in this particular story, too.
