Master and apprentice. Father figure and son figure. A Jedi and his padawan. Respected, loved, and admired….and gone too soon. A lot of words can be used to describe Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon’s relationship, and we’ll cover them all in this week’s episode. What little we know of Qui-Gon as a character and what little we glean from his and Obi-Wan’s brief on-screen relationship shapes this discussion, but we’ll also cover written material and theorize on what we believe was at the heart of these two Jedi’s relationship.
