OBI-WAN KENOBI Theory Suggests The Jedi Left A Lasting Scar On Darth Vader Following Lightsaber Battle

A very interesting new Obi-Wan Kenobi theory suggests that the Jedi Master left a lasting mark on Darth Vader that may answer a lingering question about Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Check it out...

The Obi-Wan Kenobi finale was able to fill in a lot of plot holes from the original Star Wars trilogy and, in the process, built a much stronger bridge between those and the prequels. That's something we've seen praised by fans of this Galaxy Far, Far Away in recent days, but did the show also answer a question they've been asking for decades? 

When Luke Skywalker unmasked his father, Darth Vader, in Return of the Jedi, we finally got to see Anakin Skywalker's face. Years later, George Lucas would reveal that the former Jedi had been burned alive after squaring off with Obi-Wan on Mustafar, but we never got an explanation for the gash across his head.

Obi-Wan Kenobi showed the Sith Lord "suiting up," and as far as we could see, there was no scar. However, a popular theory doing the rounds online this week (shared by SFFGazette.com) suggests that Ben might be responsible for that. While it's not immediately clear during the battle itself, that wound was likely caused when the Jedi Master slashed open Vader's helmet with his lightsaber. 

There are those who believe the scar was already there and only worsened by this fight, but whatever the case is, it's a cool detail and one that we can definitely say resolves this big question. 

The lightsaber duel has been widely hailed as being among the Star Wars franchise's best, and things got seriously intense between Ben and Vader. When the latter's face was exposed, it led to an emotional, horrifying exchange that has also generated a great deal of discussion online among fans (was Anakin absolving Obi-Wan of blame or taunting him?).
