Star Wars has lengthy been about masters and apprentices, and Ahsoka is unquestionably no completely different. The custom established approach again in 1977 with Ben Kenobi and Luke Skywalker continues right this moment within the Disney+ collection — a lot in order that the collection premiere was actually titled “Masters and Apprentices”! You’ll be aware the plural there, because the collection has traced the storylines of a pair of darkish Jedi — Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati — and, clearly, Ahsoka and her estranged padawan Sabine Wren.
All that acquired shaken up large time in Ahsoka Episode 4, “Fallen Jedi,” an episode that added one other grasp and apprentice pairing to the collection. SPOILERS forward!
In the ultimate battle of “Fallen Jedi,” Ahsoka seems to be defeated by Skoll in a lightsaber duel. Our hero will get flung off the aspect of a cliff, after which the remainder of the episode performs out with nary a shock return. We lastly see Ahsoka once more within the final scene of the episode, and he or she doesn’t look to be in a great way. The digicam pans over the cliff that tripped her up after which over her unconscious physique, fully out of scale with mentioned cliff. It’s then revealed that Ahsoka isn’t within the water, however slightly a sort of celestial walkway. From elsewhere, Ahsoka hears a well-recognized voice say, “Hello, Snips.” It’s precisely who you assume it’s.
Ahsoka turns round to see Anakin Skywalker standing earlier than her, within the… properly, not flesh per se. Anakin says, “I didn’t count on to see you so quickly,” after which we see Ahsoka’s response to seeing her grasp once more. In an impressive bit of appearing from Rosario Dawson, you’ll be able to see marvel, pleasure, confusion, awe, and possibly even terror in Ahsoka’s eyes upon seeing Anakin Skywalker, the Jedi previously often known as Darth Vader.
So… clearly we’ve to unpack this.
Is Ahsoka useless?
Considering that the collection is titled Ahsoka, I’m going to go with “no” — regardless that she is certainly standing nose to nose with a really useless character. Remember, Anakin has been (*4*).
Where is Ahsoka Tano? Ahsoka Episode 4 ending defined
That stays to be seen. It’s clear she just isn’t actually standing on a walkway within the center of house staring on the reanimated and refreshed corpse of Anakin Skywalker. Ahsoka is unquestionably in some type of Jedi afterlife, or possibly a sort of limbo between life and demise, aka the World Between Worlds. There’s really loads we don’t know concerning the Jedi afterlife and the way sure Jedi mastered the artwork of returning as a Force ghost. Anakin was one such Jedi who mastered that trick, as seen on the finish of Return of the Jedi. Add that to the truth that Ahsoka showrunner Dave Filoni has by no means shied away from the magical and inexplicable aspect of Star Wars and it appears like we’re in for a trippy reunion subsequent week. Hey — at the very least we lastly get to see Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, grasp and padawan, in live-action for the primary time!
