The penultimate episode of Ahsoka set the stage for last night's epic finale, but did you catch this interesting nod to 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Ahsoka's season finale is now streaming on Disney+ (you can read an in-depth recall here), but fans are still combing through the previous episodes for Easter Eggs and clues about Dave Filoni's future plans. 

One was recently spotted which ties the show to the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game. In Ahsoka's sixth episode, we learned that Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger are stranded in another Galaxy on a planet called Peridea; since then, of course, it's been revealed as the true ancestral home of the Witches of Dathomir.

The origin of the Nightsisters is a complicated one it appears Filoni is attempting to make sense of, and we know they have links to Kujet, a Force-sensitive Zeffonian held up as one of the greatest, if not most infamous, of the culture's icons. A Zeffo Sage, the ancient figure was a ruthless authoritarian shrouded in the dark side of the Force.

Kujet established a great palace on the planet Dathomir centuries before the fall of the Galactic Republic, but Ahsoka's penultimate episode appears to confirm he originally hailed from Peridea (or at least visited it).

With A Scene That Changes EVERYTHING - SPOILERS

In "Dreams and Madness," text on a wall chamber spotted behind Thrawn and The Great Mothers states he was a ruler of all and that his reign be everlasting.

How does this tie into Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and the story of Cal Kestis? Well, the 2019 game took players to both Dathomir and Zeffo, while the latter planet featured a mission where players were tasked to retrieve an ancient Zeffonian Astrium needed to unlock a Zeffo Vault which once belonged to Kujet.  

It's an intriguing example of world-building and suggests the Nightsistes will continue to be a significant part of the story Filoni is planning to tell in Ahsoka and beyond. 

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. 

In addition to Rosario Dawson in the title role, the series stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, the late Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger. 

The entire first season of Ahsoka is now streaming on Disney+.

I love star wars but when I see an article like this with more made up nouns than actual words, it's just unreadable to me.

They really stuck the landing on this one. That final was 🤌

And they’ve effectively rebooted Star Wars now with that ending without erasing anything in-canon
Drace24 - 10/4/2023, 11:55 AM
@FireandBlood - They "rebooted" Star Wars?
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 1:35 PM
@Drace24 - Effectively. The end of Ahsoka sets up a clean slate for future stories in another galaxy while laying down the foundation for both light and dark force user factions.
Drace24 - 10/4/2023, 2:07 PM
@FireandBlood - Wasn't the whole goal of Peridia to just get away from there? Not sure we'll see much more of it. Not that it wouldn't be exciting to have a whole new galaxy to play with, but they haven't really build up anything. Pretty sure the Far Away galaxy will still be the hub of Star Wars storytelling and Thrawns storyline will end with the formation of the First Order.
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 2:25 PM
@Drace24 - They didn’t get away from Peridea. Ahsoka, Sabine, Baylan and Shin are all stuck there. Only Ezra escaped with Thrawn.

At the end, Ahsoka specially said “time to move on”, and the closing shots established that whatever Baylan is trying to accomplish, has something to do with The Father.

Thrawns story will continue in the OG galaxy but Ahsoka’s path has diverged now into the new galaxy alongside the remaining characters who’ve migrated there.

@FireandBlood - I wouldn't call it a reboot (or even a soft reboot), but it does open a door to telling stories outside of the endless Republic/Empire stories we're getting.

That is, assuming Filoni doesn't bring them back for Heir to the Empire. I can't really see a version of that without Ahsoka.
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 4:13 PM
@bkmeijer1 - You’re right but it presents them with a blank canvas effectively the same way a reboot would, even if we take Ahsoka out the equation. Because whatever Baylan is setting is is separate to Shin and Ahsoka.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 4:43 PM
@FireandBlood - I kinda wonder if we'll ever get a follow-up to Baylan. I think it's a good ending for a character Stevenson portrayed really well. I rather see them leave it at this than have someone else take over.

That said, the way you put it does make it sound like reboot. We still get some connections to the core Galaxy (Nightsisters, Zeffo, etc), but they can do whatever they want indeed. Anything you wanna see?
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 5:07 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I’d imagine that Baylan will become some legendary figure that we won’t see again, but his actions will have some bigger ramifications for the future. It’s also good way to immortalise Ray’s character, which he did a great job of portraying.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 5:10 PM
@FireandBlood - yeah, that's kinda what I wanna see as well. Pretty much that he becomes the archetype for Grey Jedi.
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 5:21 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Same here. Besides Ezra and Thrawn, I feel like all the characters got a definitive ending, while presenting them and that galaxy with a new beginning if they want to go there.
Drace24 - 10/4/2023, 5:55 PM
@FireandBlood - You really think they are going to just stay there? Now that Thrawn has escaped? Probably just hitching a ride with the next Purrgil-Bus.
bkmeijer1 - 10/5/2023, 2:01 AM
@FireandBlood - yeah. Although like @Drace24, I don't think they'll be staying there
whoknows - 10/5/2023, 4:23 PM
@FireandBlood - well there’s a few ways to think about this, if filoni’s movie is truly a coming together for every star the mandoverse, I’m sure that will include ahsoka coming back. To the galaxy, at least by the time of the movie. But I do think what ever is happening with baylan, is setting up a new big bad for peridea’s galaxy so that you will have some future stories to tell, trying to stop this new or recently awaken ancient baddie. I’m thinking ahsoka season two will give us more exploration of that, and possibly how ahsoka returns. Which I think would be through the owl, maybe using the world between worlds to travel. Not through time but just location. Buttt my only wonder is, if ahsoka and Sabine indeed get back to the old galaxy, who will be our heroes of the new galaxy to fight this new evil threat calling to baylan. Cuz I’d hope they wouldn’t defeat the threat in just one season(season 2.) maybe season 2 will introduce us to new heroes of that galaxy that we can follow for future stories.

Kinda wish the witches were alien, too many humans in this uh galaxy far far away..
IcePyke - 10/4/2023, 5:39 AM
@Matchesz -
But the witches are already aliens

FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 5:50 AM
@Matchesz - They are aliens
Drace24 - 10/4/2023, 11:55 AM
@Matchesz - What do you mean? They are Dathomiri.
clornelas - 10/4/2023, 11:42 AM
There was also a familiar "For Dathomir" last night, one of Merrin's Jedi Survivor battle cries.
Pathogen - 10/4/2023, 11:56 AM
@clornelas - Dude, my son and I were playing Survivor and the pivotal surprise part left his 7 year old mouth gaping, his eyes wide. He was so shocked!
Timerider - 10/4/2023, 2:03 PM
I really want Merrin to show up on Dathomir, and is killed by her sisters, but before she dies, she sends out a message to Cal Kestis, and he gets that message to Luke Skywalker. Luke sends the Resistance to take out Thrawn in a huge space and troop battle on the big screen. The Mandalorian, Boba Fett, Ahsoka, Cal Kestis are all there. It will be like the Avengers Endgame battle scene, but with Star Wars.
Drace24 - 10/4/2023, 2:10 PM
@Timerider - At some point they should really unite all the surviving Jedi. Cal, Ezra, Ahsoka, Sabine, Luke. Those are the teachers of the next generation.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 3:59 PM
@Timerider - with the Nightsisters being having a larger role now, it would be cool if that links to Merrin and Cal.

And age-wise, I think it's still doable. Guessing Cal will be somewhere between 40 and 50, so Monaghan can still portray that convincingly
Timerider - 10/4/2023, 8:52 PM
@Drace24 - agreed, they should have all of them there, as well as most of the Mandalorians, like Bo-Katan leading them into battle with the Darksaber. I want this huge battle on the big screen. Bring in Boba Fett’s ship, Din Djarin’s N-1 Starfighter, the Ghost, it would be this epic battle, Mandalorians flying around wiping out Grand Admiral Thrawn’s Empire, but with heavy casualties on both sides. Some of our favorites being killed off.
