Is Ezra in Ahsoka episode 6?
‘Ahsoka’ episode 6: Thrawn and Ezra return in ‘Far, Far Away (SPOILERS)
A long-awaited moment finally arrived for “Star Wars Rebels” fans in the sixth episode of “Ahsoka,” marking the live-action debut of two fan favorites from that animated series.
The extended search for a villain and hero exiled in another galaxy, Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen, also the character’s voice in animation) and Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), set up what promises to be a major battle and payoff in the final two episodes, and perhaps beyond.
Thrawn, after all, was a central villain in “Rebels,” and serves as a sort of bridge in the “Star Wars” timeline between the remnants of the Empire and the evil forces that would coalesce into the First Order, the martial threat in the most recent film trilogy.
This week’s Ahsoka delivered long-awaited answers to a major question that was raised in the Star Wars Rebels series finale — and introduced some familiar characters in their live-action debuts.
Episode 6, titled “Far, Far Away,” opened with Ahsoka and Huyang aboard their ship inside the mouth of a massive star whale during their trek into deep space, where her friend Ezra Bridger and the villainous Grand Admiral Thrawn were believed to reside after being whisked away in the Rebels finale.
The titular heroine revealed to Huyang that she knew Sabine went with Baylan willingly, but didn’t have the heart to tell Hera. She believed that Sabine was fated to make that choice between finding Ezra and stopping Elsbeth from getting to Thrawn and bemoaned that there wasn’t enough time to help her Padawan choose correctly.
