After Cerasi's death, Obi-Wan left Melida/Daan and returned to the Jedi Temple, hoping Qui-Gon would take him back. He knows he is meant to be a Jedi, and he's willing to completely dedicate himself. But Qui-Gon is not so sure about taking Obi-Wan back as his apprentice. The pain from his second betrayal is not the only thing holding Qui-Gon back, though. The Temple is under attack. Someone in the Temple is an informant to an enemy, and that enemy has tried to kill Yoda. Lukily, Yoda is not so easily surprised.
It's up to Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to uncover the clues and find out who the enemy is. They are prepared for a ruthless, clever intruder, but the identity of the conspirator catches them off guard. The enemy turns out to be someone who is a little too familial, and he's back for a second chance at revenge.
