Obi-Wan Kenobi writer Stuart Beattie revealed his version of the story saw Darth Vader killing Moses Ingram’s Reva.
Moses Ingram’s Reva was one of the most controversial parts of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The new character ended up surviving an attack from Darth Vader and attempted to kill Luke Skywalker. Reva is also the one to tell Kenobi that Anakin was alive following their duel on Mustafar. Writer Stuart Beattie, who created the character, shared with The Direct that in his version, Reva didn’t know who Darth Vader was:
“Yeah, except the only little difference in mine was she didn’t know Darth Vader was Anakin. Cause I was like, ‘How’d she know that?’ All she saw was Anakin as Anakin because he hadn’t changed in the suit yet, right? So Anakin killed her friends, put the scar on her, almost killed her, left her for dead, basically. So, in her mind, the Jedi Council were the biggest villains in the galaxy. She believed the lies that they were plotting a coup to overtake and get power and all that, but they were stopped by the Clones. So she believed that’s why she’s hunting Jedi, because she believed the Jedi are the worst, basically.
Another major difference between what we got and what Stuart Beattie wrote for the film: Moses Ingram’s Reva died at the hands of Darth Vader. Beattie went on to reveal why he killed the inquisitor in his treatment:
“Yeah, killed by Vader at the end of it. Yeah, I wanted this story, I wanted her story to end. I wanted Reva to play her part in the Kenobi-Vader story, which was, essentially, at the end, she was the one that allowed Vader, basically told Vader to stop hunting Kenobi. You know, she ended the obsession Vader had with Kenobi. She claimed it was over, it’s done. So that was, that was her role to play. And she’d done so many terrible things, I felt she had to die [laughs]. You can only redeem so much.”
Instead of being killed by Darth Vader, Moses Ingram’s Reva survived the series. She also knows that Luke Skywalker is the son of Anakin. This is one plot point that could continue in a potential second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
