We are taken to Alaris Prime, 12 years before, where Yoda is summoned to assist, as he meets a young Padawan who would become one of his most gifted students. We fast forward, and one of his students, Krrsisih, is filled with Dark side, as it seethes over his being, creating conflict where there is none. which leads to Yoda unpack why the Padawan is so troubled, and it all comes down to tribal differences. Dooku arrives looking to help Krrsisih, as he still seeks answers . By the issue’s end, the initiates are sent out on a wilderness retreat, but trouble arises when Krrsisih decides to fulfill a prophecy he saw in a dream.
Overall, Star Wars: Yoda #5 is an issue which shows how darkness resides in all of us. The story by Houser is exhilarating. The art by the creative team is dazzling. Altogether, a story that being slow to hate, is harder than anyone can imagine.
