The first time Bo-Katan Kryze met Ahsoka Tano in The Clone Wars, she gave the Jedi a playful slap on the butt. Now, Katee Sackhoff has reflected on that, admitting it's not something she'd necessarily do.

In one of The Clone Wars' strangest moments, Bo-Katan Kryze slapped the young Ahsoka Tano on her butt during their first meeting. It was a harmless exchange in the grand scheme of things, but it's become a major talking point for many Star Wars fans in recent years. 

We've yet to see the two characters cross paths in live-action, though they share an interesting history that would definitely be worth exploring down the line. 

During a recent interview on the Steve Varley Show (via SFFGazette.com), Bo-Katan actress Katee Sackhoff was asked about her character's introduction and whether she thinks this cheeky moment will be addressed if and when a reunion takes place in live-action. 

"You know, it’s funny. It’s one of those things that...you can’t always portray characters that are morally perfect," The Mandalorian star says, looking back at that scene. "They live in this grey world. Would I slap another woman on the butt? Probably not."

"But maybe I would if she was a really good friend, I might. I don’t know. It depends. I don’t know. I’m sure it will be referenced. I’m sure people want to reference it. It’d be kind of cheeky if it was. But at the same time, I think they’ve both grown as people. At least Bo has."

Short of an Easter Egg for fans, we don't anticipate this being a huge part of any future get-together!

There's always a chance Bo-Katan will make an appearance in Ahsoka, though we'd guess that a more likely meeting place will be in Dave Filoni's eventual Star Wars movie that's set to bring all these characters together to do battle with Grand Admiral Thrawn.

If disney wants to represent lgbtq so damn much then let Bo and Ashoka have a full on lez relationship. Have a full blown lesbian sex scene in the new ahsoka show. At least it’d make the fans happy.

@Matchesz - Fetishization of lesbians is it's own form of bigotry.

I kinda forgot about it until this article, but I instantly knew what it was talking about.

But that aside, who of you is in Sackhoff's 2% of Syar Wars fans?

Oh yeah, that did happen didn't it? I mean, Bo was kinda on her villain arc with Death Watch then...but for some reason I legit thought she was supposed to be a teenager at the time too.
