Where Was Obi-Wan Kenobi During Order 66 in Star Wars? Answered

During the slaughter of Order 66 in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi was on a mission to find General Grievous in Utapau, while Anakin Skywalker stayed behind to spy on Chancellor Palpatine. Kenobi fought bravely against the evil Jedi hunter and won but soon learned that the battle was not over once Order 66 began.

Shortly after, the clone troopers shoot to kill the Jedi Master while he rides his trusty varactyl, and the two fall to their doom. Fortunately, Kenobi safely lands in a body of water and immediately hides before anyone can find him. His plan goes successfully, and he returns to a destroyed Jedi Temple, where he learns of his pupil’s betrayal.

Furthermore, this particular moment is referenced in an episode of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series when Reva recalls her memories of that dreadful night. During this conversation, Reva prosecutes him for Anakin’s misdeeds and asks Kenobi, “Where were you while he was killing my friends?”

He, of course, feels guilty for not stopping Skywalker in the first place and becomes speechless from her words. Moreover, some fans have wondered if he could have prevented the darkness inside his padawan, but others speculate that he was destined to become Darth Vader.
