This recap of the Disney + series Star Wars: Ahsoka Season 1 Episode 6, “Far, Far Away,” contains spoilers.
Ahsoka's sixth episode, "Far, Far Away," brings the nostalgia of the Star Wars of old, with quirky characters, humorous encounters with unusual animals, and some big, and I mean BIG, character debuts.
Star Wars: Ahsoka Season 1 Episode 6 Recap
Where is Peridea located?
Peridea is located at the end of the Purrgil migration map or pattern, with a giant space whale graveyard revolving around it. Thats right, the Saturn-like rings that run around the planet are nothing more than giant deceased Purrgil bones.
Before they arrive, Wren wakes up and shares a peculiar rapport with Baylan. This is a relationship akin to other Star Wars connections. I wonder why Baylan has such an interest in Wren. Is Baylan Wren's father? Since he is a former Jedi, he may see a bit of himself in Wren and think Wren is a better prospect for his apprentice than Shin.
However, later in the episode, Baylan recognizes both young women's similarities and differences. It's like he's running some social experiment to see who is more powerful using different dark versus light training methods.
Either way, Baylan "missing" the Jedi order is eye-opening and something to keep in our back pockets for the future.
Who are the Nightsisters?
The Nightsisters, powerful witches of Dathomir, ruled over the planet, while the subservient Nightbrothers lived separately. If you remember, in the pilot, this is the clan that Shin was referring to when she called Morgan a witch, hence why she says, "more witches."
For the first time, Star Wars feels less like fantasy and has more horror vibes than before. The Nightsisters are dressed in rich red robes and spikey hats and sound sinister. They sense the "Jedi" in Wren, who feels joy and confusion when hearing this.
While waiting back again in her cell and accepting more and more her fate that she has the force inside her, Wren attempts to communicate with Ahsoka with the force. Why? For one, get help. The other to explain her actions.
Is Grand Admiral Thrawn alive?
Yes! The man in blue arrives in a giant imperial destroyer with hundreds of "Night Troopers" that seem to have inspired Kintsugi Japanese uniforms. Thrawn is no drab person himself, as he shows up in "dress whites" and looks like Data from Star Trek with a bad blue suntan, slick jet-black hair, and blood-red eyes.
The encounter between Wren and Thrawn is peculiar, to say the least. Instead of striking her dead, he welcomes her with open arms (not really, but for him, it seems that way). Thrawn gives Wren Ezra's last location and even her weapons back.
However, it becomes apparent when he wants to leave Wren there, so she will be stuck there forever because Ezra is most likely dead. I imagine this is the equivalent of when you lock him in a room instead of killing your enemy and watching him starve to death.
Of course, Thrawn cannot help himself. Even though Enoch drops Wren off (who wishes her to "die well"), he sends Baylan and Shin after her in case Ezra is alive so they can kill them both.
Is Ezra Bridger alive?
Yes, we finally meet the great Ezra Bridger, who appears to be living in the village with a band of spunky breeds of bug-like creatures called "Noti" (not to forget the incredible Howler that Wren has been riding with for the past few minutes).
Wren and Ezra embrace and pick up where they left off, engaging in delightful banter and conversations. It has been a decade since Wren last saw Ezra. He's now weathered and sports a decade-long beard growth on his face.
Ahsoka Season 1 Episode 6 Ending Explained
What does Huyang say to Ahsoka?
"Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away..." is what the droid says to his master. Yes, the famous Star Wars line (and the title of the episode) "Far, Far Away" makes an appearance because Ahsoka wants to hear a parable, most likely to remind her what she's fighting for.
That's the last we see of the titular character before the episode ends, but we do see Thrawn one more time. Besides bringing in thousands of dead Stormtroopers for the catacombs for the Nightsisters to make into Zombies, he sees three to four chess moves ahead.
Thrawn knows that Ahsoka is coming.
Does "Far, Far Away" have a post-credits scene?
No, the Ahsoka episode "Far, Far Away" does not have a mid or post-credits scene.
Grade: 9/10 "The episode "Far, Far Away" gets back to its Star Wars roots with an exciting episode that answers two major Rebel's questions."
