*This article contains spoilers for the season finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi. *
In the final episode of the show, fans have gone wild over one particular character''s reappearance.
The final result has spawned a "rematch of the century" between Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and his ex-Padawan Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) promised by Lucasfilm''s director, but there''s a different moment to this day.
After the season premiere, Obi-Wan had unsuccessfully attempted to contact his late Jedi Master, who was killed by Darth Maul back in the works.
However, after he''d defeated Darth Vader and returned to Tatooine to assist Owen and Beru Lars in protecting Luke from Reva, Obi-Wan packed up his things and prepared to flee elsewhere in the desert. As he flew away from the Lars homestead, he found the familiar blue outline of a Force ghost that he believed to be none other than his former Master, Qui-Gon Jinn (once again played by Liam Neeson)!
Liam Neeson had effectively ruled out an appearance before the series'''' premiere, saying he would be open to returning as Qui-Gon "silly for a film," but he was apparently attempting to throw us all off!
Fans shivered after seeing Obi-Wan reconnect with his former master during the time being; they even got "Qui-Gon" on Twitter because so many viewers were reacting to his reappearance!
"OBI-WAN FINALLY ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH QUI-GON LET''S GOOOO," one enthusiastic fan wrote: "OBI-WAN FINALLY ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH QUI-GON LET''S GOOOOOO."

"MY PHANTOM MENACE HEART" was said for a third time, and there were even more fans who were also quite delighted to see Liam Neeson return to his beloved character.

We''ll have to wait for Liam Neeson to reappearate in the Star Wars universe, as he''s due to Qui-Gon Jinn in the upcoming animated Disney Plus anthology series, fortunately.
With Qui-Gon set to return later down the line, we''ll have to wait to see if season 2 will be presented.
All six episodes of the series are now available for purchase on Disney Plus.
