Ahsoka Episode 4, “Fallen Jedi,” has turned quite a few heads after its release as it not only ended with an unpredictable incident but also brought the long-awaited cameo from one of the most beloved Star Wars characters.
While many have predicted that the fourth episode of Ahsoka would be the series’ turning point, the degree of uncertainty the speculations carried was enormous. However, that ultimately became true as Episode 4 saw a startling twist in the story.
Ahsoka Episode 4’s conclusion sees her falling into the World Between Worlds, a place where space and time simply don’t exist. However, not everyone was familiar with the concept, raising many questions with the audience.
So, here’s a detailed explanation of what happened during the conclusion of Ahsoka Episode 4 and what it means for the coming episodes.
Ahsoka Episode 4 Ending Explained: What Happened to Ahsoka Tano?
Although the First Order had the upper hand against Ahsoka and Sabine Wren in numbers, the duo effortlessly defeated the enemies, even though they were ambushed in the forest when their ship’s power was lost.
With Ahsoka taking the initiative to retrieve the map and destroy it if not possible, Sabine Wren accompanied her to battle Shin Hati and Baylan Skoll. Even though Ahsoka succeeded in stopping the First Order from getting the coordinates of Grand Admiral Thrawn initially, Baylan corners her on the cliff.
After Sabine’s arrival, Ahsoka loses her control over emotions, leading to a powerful strike from Baylon hitting her lightsaber, and she falls off the cliff. While the episode didn’t exactly reveal where she fell, a scene prior to the credits showed that she appeared in an enclosed realm.
While many may assume that Ahsoka might be dead and joined the Force ghosts after witnessing the appearance of Anakin Skywalker, that is simply not true because it is a familiar realm known as the World Between Worlds.
How Did Ahsoka End Up in the World Between Worlds?
World Between Worlds is certainly not a place you can choose to enter on a whim, but quite the opposite. It is a mystical plane within the Force, and one can only enter it from anywhere if someone pulls them inside.
Like in Star Wars Rebels, where Ezra Bridger saves Ahsoka Tano when she battles Darth Vader in the Jedi Temple, someone must have pulled her inside to save her from death by falling from the cliff.
While it may seem like a far-fetched idea, the Force ghost of Anakin Skywalker saving Ahsoka by pulling her to the plane of World Between Worlds would be the most sensible answer. Since Jedi Force ghosts can affect physical realms, it is entirely possible for the scenario to take place.
Seeing as how the World Between Worlds has been brought to live-action for the first time, Star Wars fans who haven’t watched Rebels are certain to fall into confusion. However, following the fourth episode, it is only normal that the series will dive deep into the concept.
How Can Ahsoka Leave the World Between Worlds?
Even to the long-term Star Wars and Rebels fans, this is a perplexing question because the situation is dire, unlike in Rebels season 4, where Ezra had a portal opened to drag her out into the real world.
Ever since her appearance in The Mandalorian, Ahsoka didn’t really have much of a character development, but that could change with the arrival of Anakin Skywalker.
However, seeing as how the episode played the Darth Vader theme after showing Anakin, there may be two benefits for Ahsoka in the World Between Worlds. Firstly, she may be confronted by her past as Anakin’s Force ghost (Darth Vader) will prompt her to have visions of Clone Wars.
Secondly, Anakin, as her Jedi master, could have some secret Force technique that he learned after becoming a Force ghost and teach it to her in order to leave the World Between Worlds.
In any case, this is just speculation from our side, and we only hope that Dave Filoni will provide some clarifications in the further episodes.
