A Quick Recap of What Happened to Qi’ra in ‘Solo’ Ahead of ‘Obi Wan’

While Solo: A Star Wars Story was an overall box office flop, it did manage to introduce several new characters, including one fan favorite, Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke). Although it’s unlikely that we’ll be seeing a sequel to Solo anytime soon, Qi’ra is reportedly coming back to the Star Wars universe with a cameo in the upcoming Obi Wan show. What happened to Qi’ra that led her to cross paths with Obi Wan?

What happened to Qi’ra in ‘Solo’?

When we first met Qi’ra, she was working alongside Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) for the White Worms gang on Corellia. Though the two attempted to escape the gang and Corellia as a whole with a stolen vial of coaxium, Qi’ra was ultimately caught, with Han escaping while promising to come back for her.

Qi’ra was sold into slavery, eventually ending up in the hands of Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). While Solo doesn’t cover what happened to Qi’ra in this time, follow-up comics revealed that she attempted to escape many times, which impressed Vos.

When Han finds himself working to repay a debt to Vos alongside Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and Beckett (Woody Harrelson), Vos sends Qi’ra along with them to be sure that they complete their mission. The mission doesn’t go according to plan, but they do end up with the coaxium that Vos required that they acquire, after Han makes the storied Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.

But Han ends up coming face to face with the Cloud-Riders, who he learns are a team of rebels attempting to help those that Crimson Dawn and the other five crime syndicates terrorize. He’s faced with the difficult decision to give the coaxium to the Cloud-Riders or to Vos. In the end, it looks like his plan is to give Vos fake coaxium and the Cloud-Riders the real ones.

But when Vos is given the vials of “coaxium,” he calls them out as being fake. Although Han thinks that Qi’ra turned him in, it’s revealed that Beckett was the traitor. Beckett and Vos believe that Vos’ enforcers have caught the Cloud-Riders, who have the real coaxium, but they soon learn that A) they caught decoy Cloud-Riders and empty vials and B) the real Cloud-Riders were waiting for them. All of this leads to Beckett realizing that those “fake” coaxium vials that Han gave to Vos were the real vials.

Beckett steals the now-revealed-to-be-real vials, and Han and Qi’ra are left in a battle with Vos, with Qi’ra eventually killing her former master. She tells Han to go after Beckett, saying that she will be right behind him. Except that she doesn’t leave.
