The final episode of the Star Wars Rebels sequel series delivers a thrilling conclusion to the saga of Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, and Ezra Bridger. The episode follows the heroes as they confront Grand Admiral Thrawn and his sinister plan to use the Eye of Sion, a powerful artifact that can manipulate the Force, to unleash chaos across the galaxy.
The heroes reach Thrawn’s base as he connects his Star Destroyer with the Eye of Sion. Ezra has a new blue lightsaber for the final fight. The Great Mothers have turned Morgan Elsbeth into a witch with a special sword called the Blade of Talzin.
Ahsoka, Sabine, and Ezra fight their way to Thrawn, who faces little resistance. The Great Mothers sacrifice some Night Troopers to turn them into zombies with their majik. Ahsoka tells Sabine and Ezra to go after Thrawn, while she deals with Elsbeth.
Ahsoka and Elsbeth clash with their swords, while Ezra and Sabine encounter the zombie Night Troopers. They manage to defeat them, but they miss Thrawn’s ship. Sabine uses her hidden Force powers to help Ezra jump on board. She sees Ahsoka struggling and stays behind to help. She fights the Night Troopers, while Ahsoka defeats Elsbeth. The Great Mothers sense her death and inform Thrawn, who says, “She has done what was required.”
Ahsoka and Sabine then board the repaired shuttle (by Huyang and Noti) and chase Thrawn. Thrawn mocks Ahsoka for being Anakin’s apprentice and claims his victory before escaping, leaving the Jedi in the Purrgil graveyard. They return to their Noti friends on Peridea. Ahsoka then sees the Morai, the owl that represents her.
Meanwhile, Shin Hati meets the bandits and draws her blood-orange saber. Elsewhere, Baylan Skoll stands on a giant statue, looking at the fantasy world. Grand Admiral Thrawn goes to Dathomir when he returns to the main Star Wars galaxy. An imperial shuttle lands on Hera’s ship and a single Trooper walks out. It is Ezra Bridger. He says, “Hi, Hera, I’m home.”
Back on Peridea, Ahsoka praises Sabine for bringing Ezra home. She says everyone is where they belong and it’s time to move on. Sabine looks at the sky and feels something, but she dismisses it. “Just shadows in the starlight.” Ahsoka nods and turns around. We see the Force ghost of Anakin Skywalker watching over them.
The episode is packed with action, drama, and emotion, as the heroes face their greatest challenges yet. Though I did not like the initial episodes of the series, I really mocked them. But the quality of the series increased gradually with every episode! And what a conclusion! I am glad that I was wrong about it! And the finale was really the best episode so far! Character development, emotional moments, action, payoff with a cliffhanger, everything was intricately balanced!
The episode also delivers some satisfying resolutions to some of the main arcs and themes of the series, such as Ahsoka’s quest to find Ezra, Ezra’s growth as a Jedi Knight, and Sabine’s role as a worthy apprentice of Ahsoka.
One of the things I loved most about Ahsoka Episode 8 was its hopeful outlook. After all that Ahsoka and Ezra have been through, they finally have a chance to start fresh. They are both more powerful and experienced than they ever were before, and they are determined to make a difference in the galaxy.
I am particularly excited about the future of the Ahsoka series. The finale set up some intriguing plot threads for the next season, and I can't wait to see how they develop. I can’t wait to see the trio confronting Thrawn face to face! I would also like to see the looks on the Republic Senators' faces after they realize how foolish they were denying Hera and Ahsoka’s claims about Thrawn.
The episode is a satisfying conclusion to the highly anticipated live-action series Ahsoka, which has been praised by fans and critics alike for its compelling characters, engaging storylines, and stunning visuals. People were writing on the internet that Ahsoka was going to save the Star Wars franchise. Though I was laughing at it after the first two to three episodes, I think Ahsoka did save Star Wars.
What will happen to Ahsoka, Sabine, Huyang, and Shin who are all trapped on Peridea? Will they be able to escape or contact their allies? Will they be able to return or communicate with their friends? We will find it out in the next season, until then ‘May the force be with you!‘
Final Score - [8/10]
