Ahsoka Part Four is the fourth chapter of an American scifi space opera miniseries created and written by Dave Filoni for Disney+. It is part of the Star Wars franchise and a spin-off from the series The Mandalorian, taking place in the same timeframe as that series and its other interconnected spin-offs after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983), while also serving as a continuation to the animated series Star Wars Rebels. The series follows Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to the galaxy following the fall of the Empire. (Wikipedia)

Entitled “Fallen Jedi”, Ahsoka Part Four has a somewhat predictable ending but achieved in less than satisfactory manner. Sabine betrays Ahsoka and the New Republic, aiding the Imperial Remnants for the sake of recovering Ezra Bridgers, even if that outcome results in the ascension of Thrawn as the heir of the empire. Much of this story choice is troubling as it seems that Sabine – a stout member of the Rebel Alliance – would so easily become a traitor. Is she dumb as well?
Ahsoka Part Four thus has another implication – Ahsoka, and Hera, are terrible judges of character, believing that they could rely on Sabine. Like we said, obviously, in order for the story to move forward, Morgan Elsbeth had to achieve her goal of finding Thrawn but was Sabine’s betrayal the best way to achieve that? All this has seriously damaged the Sabine character at this point in time, presumably she will be given the opportunity to redeem herself later on in the miniseries. Like we said, predictable.
And what about yet another dodgy moment of nostalgic fan service? The appearance of Anakin Skywalker at what appears to be the World Between Worlds, which raises so many questions. Is Ahsoka dead? Is Anakin a force ghost – we saw him at the end of Return of the Jedi (well, the Special Edition at least)? Can the World Between Worlds be used to reboot the Star Wars sequel trilogy? Guess we will find out. Hmmm.
… still there’s more …
