This week’s episode of Ashoka ends in a massive cliffhanger as the Jedi padawan, Ashoka Tano, and her apprentice Sabine discover a mysterious space ring that can be the key to finding the elusive Ezra Miller and Grand Admiral Thrawn.
However, before they can explore further, they are attacked by a swarm of TIE fighters and a Star Destroyer led by none other than Morgan Elsbeth, the Imperial loyalist who has a personal vendetta against Ahsoka.
So, let’s dive into my thoughts on next week’s plot and how instrumental it can be in determining the fate of Ashoka and her fellow Jedis. Let’s begin!
1. Episode 4 Synopsis/Speculation
I expect the space ring to take Ashoka and Sabine to a new planet that will hold the key to Thrawn and Ezra’s whereabouts. Navigating the new planet and fighting the various obstacles will be a significant part of the next episode’s plot, and new characters will also be introduced.
Meanwhile, Hera and Jacen might also follow Ahsoka and Sabine to the planet, but they will be separated from them by some obstacle or enemy.
Jacen will have to learn how to use his Force abilities, with some guidance from Hera and maybe even a Force ghost of Kanan. It will be an excellent way to give some time for Hera and Jecen to develop a mother-son chemistry on-screen.
However, The Imperials will not give up pursuing Ahsoka and Sabine, as they are determined to capture them and use them as bait for Thrawn.
They will send more ships and troops to the planet, led by some ruthless commander with a vendetta against Ahsoka. This commander could be someone from Ahsoka’s past, such as an Inquisitor or a Clone Trooper who turned against her. Next week will be a good time to introduce some secondary antagonists before Thrawn makes his ‘grand’ entry later on.
Finally, The episode will end with another cliffhanger to set up the next episode’s plot.
It could be a shocking revelation, a betrayal, a sacrifice, or a twist that will change everything for Ahsoka and Sabine. It could also involve a cameo appearance by a familiar character from the Star Wars universe, such as Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, or even Darth Vader.

4. Where to Watch Ashoka
5. Ashoka Episode 3 Recap
In episode 3 of Ashoka, Wren resumes her training under Ashoka and Huyang while struggling with her inability to use the Force.
Meanwhile, Syndulla seeks the approval of Mon Mothma, the New Republic’s Chancellor, plotting to deploy Republic troops to Seatos. However, the senators dismiss the claims that Thrawn and Bridger are still alive and reject Syndulla’s plea.
Ahsoka, Wren, and Huyang journey to Seatos, where they encounter the Eye of Sion but are ambushed by a squad of fighters commanded by Hati and Marrok. The group flees by soaring through a swarm of Purrgil and lands on Seatos’ surface, hiding in the forest as Huyang thoroughly assesses the Eye of Sion, which he identifies as a Hyperjump Gate.
