Obi-Wan var väl medveten om att Anakin hade rest till Tatooine (och den otänkliga orsaken till hans besök och det faktum att han hade spenderat tid tillsammans med sin mamma innan hon dog liksom identiteten hos hans familj) men var omedveten av vad som hänt mellan Anakin och Tuskens.
“Anakin, no!” Obi-Wan shouted as Anakin started forward. Anakin almost hesitated. But Obi-Wan didn’t know about Tatooine and the Tusken Raiders. Obi-Wan must never know. And the only way to keep him from seeing Anakin in the same mindless rage was for Anakin to charge now, while he still had control of himself.
“On his way to Naboo,” Obi-Wan said. “He is escorting Senator Amidala home.” Anakin had told him of Shmi’s death; that was why he and Padmé had gone to Tatooine, he said. Obi-Wan had talked to Padmé later, and she had explained that Shmi had been kidnapped and killed by Tusken Raiders.
Neither of them had been willing to go into much detail, and from what Obi-Wan knew of the Tusken Raiders, he didn’t blame them. It was no wonder Anakin seemed shaken, if his mother had been tortured and killed. One day, perhaps, Anakin would be willing to tell him the whole story.
Obi-Wan känner inte bara identiteten hos Anakins familj, men det verkar som om han har intel på dem från efter den punkt som Anakin lämnade planeten i föregående film.
“Cliegg Lars still lives on Tatooine, I think-and Anakin’s stepbrother … Owen, that’s it, and his wife, Beru, still work the moisture farm outside Mos Eisley …”
“As close to kinfolk as the boy can come,” Yoda said approvingly. “But Tatooine, not like Alderaan it is-deep in the Outer Rim, a wild and dangerous planet.”
“Anakin survived it,” Obi-Wan said. “Luke can, too. And I can-well, I could take him there, and watch over him. Protect him from the worst of the planet’s dangers, until he can learn to protect himself.”
