Something I really want to see is Order 66 flashbacks. However, I don’t want to see it from the point of view of the Jedi or any of the good guys, or heck even the clones. I want to see it from Anakin’s perspective. We’ve seen Order 66 from the points of view of everyone except Anakin himself who led the attack. In Revenge of the Sith we saw it from the point of the view of the Jedi, in the battlefront 2 game in 2005 we saw it from the pov of the clones, in the bad batch we saw it from Kanan’s perspective and of course the bad batch themselves. In the Clone Wars it was from Ahsoka’s perspective. In Book of Boba Fett it was from Grogu’s eyes. We have seen everyone’ reaction to Order 66 except for Anakin’s and for this reason I think we’ll get the most compelling version of Order 66, from the dark lord’s perspective himself.
Perhaps Vader will be reflecting on Order 66 from his chamber and remembering everything he did there that night.
In revenge of the Sith we got to see Anakin taking out Jedi in some holograms as obi-wan watched in shock, and we even saw Palpatine arrive at the Jedi Temple to congratulate Vader on his victory. I feel these could all be things that we witness now from Anakin’s perspective, or rather should I say Vader. Imagine this scenario, Obi-Wan says, what would Padme think? And this obviously really hits Vader, or rather, Anakin deep within himself. So he retaliates by hurting Kenobi, It could be a moment of anger when Vader remembers, telling Obi-Wan of just how violent he was at the temple. The things he did. As he’s describing it, we get the flashbacks from his perspective, and we finally get to see just how powerful he was. We saw Anakin fight Dooku, and once he tapped into the dark side, it was over in a matter of seconds. Beyond that duel, we didn’t see him fight anyone else other than Obi-Wan. I think it’d be fun to see him clash sabers with fellow Jedi masters like Cin Drallig, the temple’s lightsaber instructor, or any of the other masters and knights who were powerful in their own rights, but nothing compared to the chosen one. I think it would help draw Anakin’s arc even further into the dark side if we saw just how much he struck fear into those he once protected and fought alongside. It would add much more weight to Revenge of the Sith, and that’s definitely something to not take lightly. This show will change how we see Revenge of the Sith forever. That could be a great thing, or a bad thing, it all depends on the delivery and what they try to embellish. Much like the clone wars only added positively to Anakin’s character, as well as the others, I hope the obi Wan Kenobi show will do the same to revenge of the Sith in flashbacks, as well as the original trilogy for Vader going forwards.
