Star Wars: Ahsoka Season 1 Episode 7 Recap
What Star Wars fan favorite helps Hera?
C-3PO comes to Hera's rescue just as Hera is about to be stripped of her rank and influence. The droid delivers a letter from Senator Organa, saying she had authorized the mission to Peridea, and she did, in fact, not go rogue.
C-3PO then leaves, but Chancellor Mon Mothma confronts Hera on how this could not be the case. Hera shrugs it off, knowing she has vested the council. Senator Hamato Xiono gave her the most trouble, but Mon Mothma now has her critical ever-so-critical eye on her.
What does Ahsoka encounter when they arrive outside of Peridea?
The pod of Purrgil and Ahsoka land outside the Peridea system but find themselves in danger by encountering an Imperial minefield. The poor Purrgils are providing cover for Ahsoka and Huyang.
Huyang voices this fact to Ahsoka's regret. The Purrgil then appear to hit their built-in hyperdrive, leaving them defenseless. Eventually, Ahsoka begins to try to use force to locate Wren as they hide in the planet's debris-filled ring.
Lady Morgan and the Nightsisters use their powers to triangulate a locate, appearing to use Ahsoka's force against her. When the Imperialist scum does find her, the Hyperdrive Ring attacks, but Ahsoka and Huyang escape.
How does Ahsoka defeat Baylan?
Ahsoka doesn't so much defeat Baylan as she tricks him. Ahsoka senses that Wren is in trouble and leaps from her ship, leaving Huyang to fend off several enemy fighters. Baylan stands in her way, not allowing Ahsoka to rush to Wren's defense.
As they square off in another epic lightsaber battle, Baylan comments that she will never defeat him. Ahsoka replies, "I don't have to." That's when Huyang comes from behind in his ship, spraying the terrain with their blasters.
Ahsoka escapes Baylan's pursuit and runs like the wind to Wren's defense.
Is Ahsoka able to save Wren and Ezra?
Yes, but only after Baylan sends Shin in by herself. She arrives, taking on Ezra and Wren, but then a couple of dozen Night Troopers come in their red bandage garb. Ezra refuses to take any of Wren's weapons, including her lightsaber but has the Force on her side.
Surprisingly, he can shove Night Troopers and stop Shin's wicked lightsaber maneuvers with his hands, preventing them a mere few inches from his palms. He also manages to pull Wren out of harm's way on more than one occasion.
Ahsoka arrives and fends off the enemy, who leave after Grand Admiral Thrawn sends a signal to return to their base. (In the previous scene, he showed Lady Morgan they almost had enough energy to leave the planet.)
What does Ahsoka offer Shin?
Ahsoka offers Shin her hand and help after being left behind by the remaining Night Troopers. Shin looks scared, and as I have commented on previous articles, she is questioning the wisdom of Baylan and their connection to the Empire.
However, she runs away, rejecting Ahsoka's generous offer. Wren and Ezra are going to chase her, but Ahsoka stops them.

What does Ezra say to Ahsoka at the end of the episode?
After fending off Shin and the Night Troopers (and the initial group who attacked the Ezra, Wren, and the Noti), he says, "Guys, I have a feeling. I think I might be going home after all."
He also could have been saying this to a group of Noti who came out of their protective vehicles, however.
Does "Dreams and Madness" have a post-credits scene?
No, the Ahsoka episode "Dreams and Madness" does not have a mid or post-credits scene.
Grade: 8/10 "Ahsoka's seventh episode, "Dreams and Madness," has a strong attack of establishing characters at a crossroads. In particular, Shin seems to question Lady Morgan, Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Baylan's dedication."
