Warning: Spoilers for Obi-Wan through Episode 4 follow!

Chapter 4 of Obi-Wan Kenobi features more than one important link to the 2019 video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Not only do we see the Jedi-hunting Purge Troopers fighting alongside the Inquisitors, the series also marks the live-action debut of Fortress Inquisitorius. And as this episode reveals, this imposing fortress is harboring a very disturbing room full of fallen Jedi Knights.

The series has dredged up all sorts of burning questions about this era in the Star Wars timeline, but this latest reveal may be the most perplexing twist yet. What exactly is this "tomb"? Are we seeing dead bodies or Jedi who are being kept alive in some sort of stasis? And does this room tie back to Emperor Palpatine's secret Sith experiments? Here's what we know and what we still hope to find out over the course of the show's final two episodes.

Episode 4 doesn't entirely make it clear whether the Jedi prisoners seen in the depths of Fortress Inquisitorius are living or dead. The fact that Obi-Wan refers to the secret chamber as "a tomb" certainly suggests the latter. On the other hand, these bodies appear to be kept in some sort of stasis field. If they're not living bodies kept in suspended animation, then they're at least being preserved for one reason or another.

Most likely, this "tomb" is meant to be a grisly trophy room. The Inquisitors probably want visible souvenirs of their accomplishments. After all, these hardened killers are constantly fighting amongst themselves and trying to curry favor with Lord Vader. It's a lot easier to make a case for a promotion when you have physical reminders of every Jedi you've tortured and executed...
