Star Words AOTC Part 5

This time it’s one of those foreshadowing moments:

Ouch. But seen in the context of Obi-Wan’s current mindset, it’s one of those exasperated parent-like things to say. He’s saying it almost flippantly, perhaps not aware of how much it stings Anakin. “Don’t say that, Master. You’re the closest thing I have to a father.” And Anakin has always yearned for a father. He hoped to find a surrogate in Qui-Gon, but that didn’t work out. Obi-Wan, alas, is never able to find quite the right footing as a father figure. He ends up behaving more like an older brother, as evidenced by the competition and impatience and snarking. Anakin ends up finding a different father figure….who just happens to be a conniving Sith Lord. Alas indeed.
