The episode begins with the enigmatic Grand Admiral Thrawn, portrayed by Lars Mikkelsen, and the sinister Nightsisters bestowing a “gift of shadows” upon Morgan Elspeth, played by Diana Lee Inosanto. This malevolent gift transforms her into one of the evil witches and introduces the formidable Blade of Talzin, a weapon of immense power.
Ahsoka Tano, portrayed by Rosario Dawson, teams up with Ezra, played by Eman Esfandi, and Sabine, portrayed by Natasha Liu Bordizzo, to face off against Thrawn, the Nightsisters, and their formidable army of Night Troopers on the planet Peridea. This climactic battle sees Ezra crafting a new lightsaber, paying homage to his late mentor Kanan Jarrus from “Rebels.” Ahsoka wields her iconic twin white lightsabers, while Sabine takes up Ezra’s old green saber.
However, their fight takes an unexpected turn as the Nightsisters reveal their ability to resurrect fallen soldiers with dark magic. Undeterred, the Jedi trio battles through waves of undead Night Troopers. Notably, Sabine harnesses the power of the Force to retrieve her lightsaber from a distance, demonstrating her newfound Jedi abilities.
In a daring pursuit, Sabine and Ezra chase down Thrawn’s Star Destroyer, requiring a seemingly impossible jump to board the vessel. Ezra’s leap falls short, but Sabine’s newly acquired Force abilities save the day as she propels him safely onto the ship. Meanwhile, Ahsoka engages in a dazzling lightsaber duel with Morgan, ultimately emerging victorious.
With Morgan defeated, Thrawn orders his Star Destroyer to unleash a barrage of lasers upon Ahsoka and Sabine. Just in the nick of time, their trusty droid Huyang, voiced by David Tennant, comes to their rescue, having repaired their ship. As Thrawn escapes into hyperspace, he taunts Ahsoka with a reminder of her former master Anakin Skywalker’s tragic fall to the dark side.
The episode concludes with the revelation of Thrawn’s destination: Dathomir, home to the Nightsisters. Stranded on Peridea, Ahsoka and Sabine face a daunting task of thwarting his sinister plot, potentially with the help of Ezra, who has disguised himself as a Stormtrooper and embarked on a mission to reunite with Hera and the Resistance.
As the episode draws to a close, Sabine senses “shadows in the starlight” scattered throughout the galaxy, while Ahsoka gazes into the distance as a Force ghost of Anakin Skywalker, portrayed by Hayden Christensen, watches over the heroes.
The finale of “Ahsoka” leaves fans eagerly anticipating the next chapter in the “Star Wars” saga, with questions about Thrawn’s plans, Ezra’s role, and the lingering presence of the past. With its breathtaking action and character developments, this episode marks a significant moment in the ever-expanding “Star Wars” TV universe. Stay tuned for more updates as the epic saga continues to unfold.
