The first season of Star Wars: The Acolyte is currently underway, and has been delivering plenty of surprises week after week. The series, which is Star Wars’ first live-action venture set during the High Republic era, has introduced a pretty massive ensemble cast thus far. That includes quite a few potential antagonists and villains — and the events of the series’ latest episode may have just confirmed the identity of one. Spoilers for episode 4 of Star Wars: The Acolyte below! Only look if you want to know!

The episode follows Osha (Amandla Stenberg), Master Sol (Lee Jung-jae), and a number of additional Jedi as they search for Osha’s twin, Mae (Amandla Stenberg) before she kills again. As a result, they all converge on the home of Wookiee Jedi Kelnacca, only to discover that he is already dead, and not by Mae’s hand. Just then, Mae’s mysterious Master reveals themselves, ignites their lightsaber, and fights Mae, Osha, and the Jedi.

This marks the most prominent appearances yet of The Master thus far on The Acolyte, after the masked Sith appeared very briefly at the end of the series’ premiere episode. As fans have already speculated about The Master’s real identity, the events of Episode 4 have led some to wonder if it might be former smuggler Qimir (Manny Jacinto). After all, Qimir accompanied Mae on the trip to Kelnacca for the majority of the episode, but conveniently dipped away before The Master emerged.
