Has anyone else been pulling their hair out trying to figure out what the brooding Baylan Skoll's been nosing around for in Ahsoka? Well, brace yourselves! Buckle up, Buttercup, for we are about to crack open the mystery like a surprise-filled Easter egg. Unveiling the enigma that's been lurking, shimmering, beneath Baylan's game face this whole time. And oh, spoiler alert, because I am about to spill the galactic beans. So, if you're as antiquated as ancient Jedi texts and haven't watched the finale yet, time to shield your eyes and plug your ears!
Dusting off the lens of scrutiny, let's turn towards our main man, Skoll. From the minute he stepped on Peridea, it's been evident that he's been hunting down something powerful — like cosmic, earth-shattering level powerful. I mean, who needs a map when you can have mind-boggling power, right? In the finale, our enigmatic hero, Baylan, takes a solitary stroll towards a valley graced with statues of the Father, the Son, and the 'somewhat decapitated' Daughter. If you're scratching your head, these represent the gods of the Force universe, as we first met in The Clone Wars.
Fast forward to a peculiar detour that landed Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and our girl, Ahsoka Tano, in the bizarre realm of Mortis, ruled by our three higher-than-life figurines. So much happened that day, and if you’re a bit hazy, don’t worry; Skywalker became the Chosen One (yet, again) and was expected to substitute the Father. But, our free spirited Skywalker refused the offer, and in a turn of events as weird as blue milk moustaches, all gods dropped dead. It was literally divine drama on steroids.
Another head-scratcher from the finale was Morai, the owl-like convor bird that might as well be the reincarnation of the Daughter, who makes a grand entrance in episode 8. How does that connect with Skoll's pilgrimage to the Force gods' valley? Don’t know about you, but I'm getting some serious Indiana Jones vibes here!
The possibilities are tantalizing! Could Skoll be plotting something with the World Between Worlds? Or is he just a misunderstood guru who enjoys hikes to ancient statues? If our speculations are correct, Skoll might be unlocking access to a power of cosmic proportions, rivaling Yoda's midi-chlorian count!
But hey, remember the Skywalker-situation in episode 5? Our Chosen One lingered within the World Between Worlds. I mean could it be true? Has our wandering Jedi taken up residency in there? The suspense is juicier than Sarlacc-prey!
While Ahsoka season 2 might reveal more, Dave Filoni's Star Wars movie remains a potentially sparkling trove of answers. Until then, keep praying to your Mortis gods and hanging onto every tweet from Filoni's cryptic twitter handle.
To swim deeper into the Star Wars vortex, catch Ahsoka on Disney Plus and track down interesting finds like Grand Admiral Thrawn's backstory, Ahsoka’s nickname Snips, and what's up with those purrgil creatures. The Star Wars universe is your oyster. May the Force be with you, always!
