Latest Episode of ‘The Clone Wars‘ Sets Up Ahsoka’s Appearance in ‘The Mandalorian‘. Since the announcement that Ahsoka Tano would make her live-action debut in Season 2 of The Mandalorian fans have been speculating as to how the parties involved would come together in the Disney+ series. We may now have the answer…
SPOILER ALERT The rest of this post contains major spoilers for the latest episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. You have been warned!
It seems the latest episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Final Season, called: “Together Again“, may have shown how their paths will cross in the future. In Together Again, Ahsoka Tano escapes the celwhere Pyke Syndicate had her imprisoned and while navigating the halls of the prison Ahsoka overhears a conversation between Pyke and Darth Maul via hologram projector.
During their conversation Darth Maul threatens Pyke with replacement by the Crimson Dawn should he fail him. Any of that ring a bell? That’s because the Crimson Dawn is the group headed by Darth Maul and featured in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars fans were thrilled to begin connecting the dots between the animated series and the beloved Star Wars films and it seems Solo is not the only Star Wars Story to gain a connection in this episode.
Towards the end of the episode, Ahsoka is reunited with Bo-Katan, leader of the Mandalorian Nite Owls and sister of Duchess Satine, who’s sister was killed by Darth Maul and happened to be the Ruler of Mandalore. Turns out, The Battle of Mandalore is set to be the focus and the final story arch of The Clone Wars and likely the reason Ahsoka Tano will appear in The Mandalorian Season 2. In the book series following Ahsoka, she leads the Army of the Grand Republic in The Battle of Mandalore with the goal of removing Maul from power.
Another trail is the Darksaber, the weapon wielded by Moff Gideon at the end of The Mandalorian. The Darksaber was once wielded by Darth Maul, then returned to Bo-Katan in Star Wars: Rebels, and has somehow landed in the hands of Moff Gideon. Likely becoming another thread tying Ahsoka to the story of The Mandalorian.
What do you think? Does this sound like wild fan speculation or the ground work for introducing Ahsoka in the mega-popular Star Wars series? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Star Wars!
