Fans of The Acolyte continue to thirst over Qimir thanks to a certain moment that happened in the recently-aired episode 6.

Last week's episode revealed that Qimir is the identity behind the mysterious Sith Lord that Mae is serving. However, he has also become a new crush for many fans partly due to Manny Jacinto's physical attractiveness and charm in portraying the villain.

We've seen throughout the Star Wars franchise's history that fans are crushing over certain characters and the tradition still somewhat continues in The Acolyte even if it's someone from the dark side.

Spoiler Warning: This article includes spoilers for The Acolyte episode 6, so proceed with caution.

The Acolyte Fans Continue to Thirst Over Qimir in Episode 6

The recently-aired episode 6 of The Acolyte titled "Teach/Corrupt" dealt with the aftermath of last week's cliffhanger where Osha was left unconscious in the jungles of Khofar and was discovered by Qimir.

One of the highlights for many fans was a moment that happened earlier in the episode where a shirtless Qimir was taking a bath on a shore near his cave.

As expected, fans took to social media and expressed their thirst for Qimir thanks to his shirtless moment as some of them joked that they are now also being seduced to the dark side just like what has seemingly happened to Osha.

Here are some of the posts from fans on X who reacted to Qimir's shirtless moment:

While a lot of fans are thirsting for the character, it should also be noted that there's still a considerable amount of praise for Jacinto's performance and it's still the main reason why Qimir has resonated already within just a couple of episodes.

It is interesting to see what happens next to Qimir now that Osha is seemingly being set up to be his acolyte and whether he will successfully seduce her to the dark side.

New episodes of The Acolyte premiere every Tuesday night on Disney+.
