Episodes 1 and 2 of ‘Ahsoka‘ have already been released, and fans were hooked due to the different things revealed in those first two episodes. Of course, the ‘Ahsoka’ two-part opening was meant to pull fans into the series so that they would expect more out of the next episodes. In that regard, there are a ton of expectations in episode 3. So, what can we expect from ‘Ahsoka’ episode 3?
We can expect episode 3 of ‘Ahsoka’ to be a bit more grounded and slow-paced due to the shorter runtime. It will serve as a way for us to learn more about the history of the characters and what they went through. But it may also explore more about the overarching plot of the story.
The Disney+ Star Wars shows tend to mellow down in the next few episodes after explosive releases, and the same could happen for the ‘Ahsoka’ series, which had such an eventful two-part release. As such, the series might mellow out a bit in the next two episodes before going for another explosive series of events. Now, let’s look at what we can expect in episode 3 of ‘Ahsoka.’
Unlike the first two episodes of ‘Ahsoka,’ episode 3 will have a shorter runtime of around 31 minutes, not counting the credits. That means that it is much shorter than the first two episodes, which combined to form a feature-length film in terms of how long they were. Of course, the first two episodes needed to be long so that the series could properly establish the premise, the characters, and the overall plot.
As such, the third episode will likely be a lot more grounded than the first two episodes in the sense that it might be as eventful. That means that fans probably won’t see a lot of lightsaber fights or action in this episode, although that could still change depending on how fast the series of events take place.
But the thing that we do believe is that episode 3 is likely going to be slower in terms of its pacing because fans would need to have a break after the eventful first two episodes of ‘Ahsoka.’ And that’s why there’s a good chance that episode 3 and even episode 4 won’t have the same heart-pounding series of events we saw in several scenes in episodes 1 and 2.
Ahsoka’s past will be explored
One of the things that we know about Ahsoka is that she was off the grid for years. Ezra rescued her from Darth Vader using the World Between Worlds as she was forced back into 3 BBY. She was gone for around seven years before she resurfaced after the fall of the Empire, as that was when she likely started training Sabine Wren as her Padawan while they worked together to try to find Ezra all over the galaxy.
But we didn’t know what Ahsoka did while she was away. We only know that she entered the World Between Worlds again and likely spent time on a spiritual journey that transformed her.
As such, episode 3 might give us an insight into what Ahsoka did while she was away from the action. It might allow us to see what went through her life when she was in the World Between Worlds and while she was absent from the meat of the entire Rebellion period that led to the fall of the Empire. And while episode 3 might not completely explore this part of Ahsoka’s life story, it might give us clues as to where she was while she was away.
More of the Ahsoka and Sabine master-apprentice relationship
Of course, as mentioned, Ahsoka and Sabine worked together sometime after the fall of the Empire or even before that. They searched the galaxy together for Ezra Bridger’s whereabouts, and that was when Ahsoka likely sensed Sabine’s very weak connection to the Force. But Sabine’s innate talents as a warrior due to her Mandalorian heritage may have convinced Ahsoka to train her in the ways of the Force.
But the thing is that we don’t know what went on between Ahsoka and Sabine. The only thing that we know is that Sabine was a stubborn Mandalorian who didn’t like to listen to her. And Ahsoka also admitted that she abandoned Sabine at one point, which could mean that something big may have happened between them.
The fact that Sabine was bitter about the fact that Ahsoka never visited her on Lothal before the series events is another clue that points to the possibility that they had a big falling out period while they were traveling together. Sabine also told Ahsoka that she never made things easy for her. And we can understand Ahsoka for having such sentiments about Sabine because she was always portrayed as stubborn and bullish as any other Mandalorian.
Whatever the case, episode 3 might mellow out in terms of the action but will give us more clues regarding what happened between Ahsoka and Sabine in the past. And we might understand why they didn’t part on the best of terms.
Morgan Elsbeth and the Eye of Sion
The end of episode 2 allowed us to see Morgan Elsbeth completing the Eye of Sion, which is a ring-like structure that she believes will be able to take Grand Admiral Thrawn back to the known galaxy. The fact that she had already completed the construction of this massive ship could mean that she and her allies were now ready to depart through the Pathway to Peridea.
In that regard, there’s a good chance that episode 3 will allow us to see the steps that Morgan and her allies are now set to take before setting out on an important journey to bring back the so-called heir to the Empire.
But there’s also a chance that the entire episode will skip Morgan and the Dark Jedi to spotlight the relationship between Ahsoka and her apprentice, Sabine. After all, Ahsoka and Sabine are on their way to the Eye of Sion to try to stop it. And there’s a good chance that episode 3 will focus more on flashbacks and the things that happened between Ahsoka and Sabine so that they can address the elephant in the room and get on the same page before embarking on a dangerous mission.
