“Ahsoka” always seemed like a sequel to “Star Wars Rebels.” The return of Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson), Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), and Hera (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) caught fans’ interest, but many questioned if Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi) would be featured. He goes into the unknown to fight Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) and his troops in the “Rebels” finale and as “Ahsoka” begins, Sabine still hopes to rescue him. In “Ahsoka” Episode 6, she achieves that goal.
Despite the fact that Thrawn is found first, Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) proves to be a man of his word by allowing Sabine to go forth to try to locate Ezra on this new planet. She will undoubtedly be being watched by Skoll and his apprentice Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno), who are prepared to kill both Sabine and Ezra. But, for the time being, Sabine and Ezra have an emotional reunion as Sabine follows crab-like aliens to a small village where Ezra has remained hidden. The battle is far from done, but Ezra will surely be vital in the next battle between Thrawn and his allies.
Many abilities are possible through the Force. Ezra’s training, as seen in “Star Wars Rebels,” undoubtedly enabled him to live for so long on a remote planet in an entirely other galaxy. Viewers even see how he communicates with the crab aliens known as Noti. And Ezra’s power to make friends with creatures of all kinds is something “Rebels” fans have seen before.
