Okay, four episodes into Star Wars: Ahsoka and the show is good despite my slight criticism in the last article. Maybe there is hope for Star Wars after all. So without further ado, let’s recap what happened in the past two episodes.
Part Three: Time To Fly finds Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) continuing where her training left off with her master Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson). General Hera Syndulla (Mara Elizabeth Winstead) tries to get the New Republic council to support the mission to investigate a potential threat of Admiral Thrawn’s return. However, her plea falls on deaf ears despite Mon Mothma’s (Genevieve O’Reilly) support. So she and her son Jacen and a couple of X-Wing pilots led by Captain Carson Teva (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) render assistance en route to the planet Seatos. Meanwhile, Ahsoka, Wren, and Huyang (David Tennant) arrive at the said planet to find Elsbeth’s (Diana Lee Insonato) ship known as the Eye of Sion there as well. They were being intercepted by Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) and Marrok’s squadron of fighters while Elsbeth herself used the Eye of Sion’s cannons to stop them permanently. After successful evasive maneuvers, Ahsoka’s shuttle gets hit forcing them to make a direct landing on the planet’s surface not long after passing through a herd of Purgill to evade the enemy. Huyang after scanning the ship tells the crew that it’s a hyperspace ring designed to travel to another galaxy. As Ahsoka’s party begins to repair the ship, Hati alerts Skroll (Ray Stevenson) of their attempts to hide, prompting the former Jedi Master to send his forces into the forest to hunt them down.
Part Four: Fallen Jedi finds Ahsoka, and the gang attacked by Skroll’s forces but were able to defeat them. Ahsoka and Wren attempt to stop Elsbeth from acquiring Thrawn’s location but are engaged in a duel between Hati and Marrok. Ahsoka defeats Marrok and proceeds to fight Skroll but is unable to defeat her and stop the map from transmitting. Wren arrives to prevent the transmission, but Skroll ends up manipulating her wanting to find Ezra Bridger and taking her prisoner. Thrawn’s location is revealed, and the Eye of Sion jumps into hyperspace bypassing Syndulla and her squadron of New Republic X-Wing fighters in the process. Ahsoka awakens in the World Between Worlds where she meets her former master Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen).
So far, the show is getting more interesting since we see signs of urgency of the Empire’s resurgence throughout the past three episodes. Having not watched the rest of The Clone Wars and Rebels, it’s interesting to see how the story will take shape as the series progresses. The series is, like previous Star Wars Disney + plus shows like Obi-Wan Kenobi, tying back to the prequels and their cartoon shows through Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker who has been having a good renaissance lately after appearing in two shows recently. We’ll see how Ahsoka tries to get out of the World Between Worlds and what galaxy the bad guys are heading to in the next episodes.
Star Wars: Ahsoka Episodes 3-4 ups the ante by illustrating how the attempt to bring Thrawn back to the galaxy is a danger to all life in the galaxy. Along the way, there is a cool cameo making their re-appearance (again) as well
