The run-time for next week's sixth episode of Ahsoka appears to have been confirmed (several different sources are in agreement), and, if accurate, it should please fans who were of the opinion that some of the earlier chapters (episode 3, in particular) felt a little rushed.
The still untitled episode is believed to clock-in at 46 minutes, 26 seconds - without credits. This would make it the longest episode after only the extended series premiere (54 mins, 21 seconds), and Tuesday's highly-praised and nostalgia heavy fifth instalment, "Shadow Warrior" (49 mins, 50 seconds with credits).
We still don't know exactly what episode 6 is going to entail, but this week's adventure concluded with Ahsoka and Huyang enlisting the aid of one of the giant interdimensional space whales known as the Purrgil to (hopefully) follow Sabine Wren, Morgan Elsbeth and her Dark Jedi(?) accomplishes to another galaxy.
Is it finally time for Grand Admiral Thrawn and/or Ezra Bridger to make their presence felt?
We wouldn't be surprised if these Star Wars Rebels characters were being saved for the season finale. In fact, considering what's going on with Hera and her potential court-martial, there's a chance episode 6 will switch focus to the (possibly former) General Syndulla and Mon Mothma, leaving Ahsoka and Sabine's journey into the unknown to be covered in the last two episodes.
That's pure speculation, of course. Hopefully, Lucasfilm will release a clip over the weekend to give us a better idea of what to expect.
