Ahsoka Episode 8: Easter Eggs & Breakdown


The highly anticipated finale of “Ahsoka” is finally here, and it’s safe to say that it did not disappoint. In Episode 8 titled “The Jedi, The Witch, and The Warlord,” we witness the culmination of a thrilling storyline filled with lightsaber battles, emotional confrontations, and surprising twists. This article will delve into the episode’s Easter eggs and provide a detailed breakdown of the key moments. Please be warned that spoilers lie ahead if you have not yet watched Episode 8 of “Ahsoka” on Disney+.

Thrawn’s Cunning Plan

The episode opens with Thrawn, the cunning and calculating antagonist, preparing for his departure from Peridea. However, he doesn’t leave without a final act of defiance. Thrawn sends two Tie Fighters to attack Ahsoka‘s ship, underestimating the power and resourcefulness of a Jedi. He even references how he had fallen to the heroics of a single Jedi in the past, highlighting the formidable reputation of Jedi warriors.

The Nightsister’s Transformation

One of the standout moments in Episode 8 is the transformation of Morgan Elsbeth, who becomes a Nightsister. As a reward from the Great Mothers, Elsbeth is bestowed with the gift of shadows and wields The Blade of Talzin. This unique lightsaber, which emits a flaming green glow, was previously seen in the hands of Mother Talzin during her duel with Jedi Master Mace Windu in the Clone Wars.

An Ezra’s Lightsaber

Inside Ahsoka‘s ship, we witness Ezra Bridger, a skilled Jedi apprentice, building a new lightsaber. However, Huyang, the ancient droid who instructs Jedi in lightsaber construction, disapproves of Ezra’s methods. Interestingly, it is revealed that Kanan Jarrus, a Jedi Master, taught Ezra how to build lightsabers, and Huyang had previously guided Kanan in this process. To further emphasize the connection, Huyang gives Ezra a piece that Kanan had used to construct his own lightsaber. The significance here lies in the fact that Ezra’s new lightsaber bears a striking resemblance and color to Kanan’s saber, symbolizing the passing of knowledge and legacy between Jedi.

The Tension between Ahsoka and Sabine

During their journey, Ahsoka and Sabine’s relationship becomes strained due to their differing perspectives on the events that unfolded on Mandalore after the war. Ahsoka, however, reassures Sabine that she holds no resentment towards her, as she understands the difficult choices that one must make. Ahsoka empathizes with Sabine, emphasizing that Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka‘s former master, always stood by her, which is why Ahsoka will do the same for Sabine.

Battle Against the Night Troopers

As Ahsoka, Ezra, and Sabine proceed with their mission, they find themselves engaging in a fierce battle with the Night Troopers. These formidable enemies possess the ability to rise from the dead through a chant of resurrection, a power previously seen in “The Clone Wars” and the “Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order” game. Despite the undead threat, Ahsoka, Ezra, and Sabine manage to overcome the Night Troopers, showcasing their exceptional combat skills and resilience.

The Final Showdown

In the climactic final showdown, Ahsoka confronts Elsbeth, engaging in a duel with her dual lightsabers. Sabine and Ezra assist by taking down two Zombie Night Troopers, with Sabine finally tapping into the Force and displaying her latent abilities. Meanwhile, Ezra manages to board Thrawn’s ship, leaving Ahsoka and Sabine to face off against Elsbeth and the remaining Night Troopers. Ahsoka emerges victorious, defeating Elsbeth, and is soon joined by Huyang, who arrives with a ship to pursue Thrawn.

Thrawn’s Message and the Chosen One

Before Thrawn escapes into hyperspace, he sends Ahsoka a cryptic message, referring to her as a “ronin.” This term carries significant symbolic weight, as “Ronin” was a former Jedi who strayed from the Jedi rules and ultimately paved the way for the creation of the Sith in “Star Wars Visions.” Thrawn’s message adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing narrative, leaving audiences wondering about Ahsoka‘s future and her potential role in the balance of the Force.

A Glimpse into the Future

As the episode draws to a close, we catch glimpses of various characters’ fates. Ahsoka and Sabine reunite with the Noti, while the enigmatic Morai, a creature connected to the Force, appears and continues to watch over Ahsoka. Shin is seen with the nomads, and Baylan stands atop the finger of The Father Statue, representing the Light and Dark sides of the Force. The mention of The Father Statue prompts a nostalgic connection to “The Clone Wars” arc, where Anakin Skywalker was tested and recognized as the Chosen One. Finally, Ezra reunites with Hera and Chopper, the droid who recognizes him.


With its thrilling action sequences, character development, and rich storytelling, Episode 8 of “Ahsoka” delivers a satisfying conclusion to the season. The episode’s Easter eggs, including references to previous “Star Wars” media and the exploration of important philosophical themes, add layers of depth to the narrative. As fans eagerly anticipate what lies ahead for Ahsoka and the Star Wars universe, it is clear that this episode serves as a bridge to future storylines and adventures.
