Full spoilers follow for The Acolyte episode one.

Star Wars: The Acolyte will revolutionize Lucasfilm’s legendary sci-fi franchise – that was I and many other fans’ key takeaway ahead of its Disney Plus debut. Okay, nobody promised that but when quotes like “it’ll be unlike anything you’ve seen before” were being thrown around pre-release, it’s easy to understand why so many of us had high expectations before its first two episodes were released.

Color me disappointed, then, that The Acolyte‘s first big plot twist was just casually thrown out there. Major spoilers follow for the show’s first entry, so turn back now unless you’ve seen it.

I had more than an inkling about one of the series’ major reveals (I’m confident this isn’t its first and last). Indeed, one of The Acolyte‘s most recent trailers ruined said big plot twist almost two weeks before episodes one and two – titled ‘Lost / Found’ and ‘Revenge / Justice’ – aired. Spoiling the surprise for myself, then, is partly on me for watching the trailer, but I also lay some blame at Lucasfilm and Disney’s feet for not triple-checking the teaser for any potential story spoilers.
