Episode 5 of Ahsoka turned out to be even more exciting than we expected.
Disney+ Ahsoka recently released Episode 5, and fans were treated to a jaw-dropping encounter between Anakin Skywalker and his former Padawan in the World Between Worlds.
In episode 5, we see Anakin ignite his lightsaber and engage his former Padawan in battle. Fans were given a glimpse into the days of “The Clone Wars,” where a young Ahsoka played by Ariana Greenblatt, receives combat training from Anakin.
Their training session took an unexpected turn as humor clashed with the chaos of battle as it was surrounded by fallen clones. Anakin gives an important lesson to Ahsoka if she doesn’t fight, she’ll die. As Ahsoka watched Anakin return to war, she glimpsed flashes of Darth Vader within him.
Fans were then taken to the Siege of Mandalore, a battle where Anakin was not present. He tells Ahsoka how proud he was to see her becoming a warrior and expresses everything he had was now in her. Ahsoka, however, disagrees with this sentiment.
She points out that no one truly understood the depths of Anakin’s power and the darkness that lurked within him. This disagreement triggers Anakin’s dark side, transforming him into Vader. With a red lightsaber, Vader attacks Ahsoka, only to be disarmed by her firm determination.
Ahsoka decides to choose life over fighting, and this decision has a profound effect on Anakin. He uses all his focus to get rid of the darkness inside him and become his old self again.
Even though his darker side was gone, it seemed like he was still dealing with his inner struggles. Ahsoka then realizes she has qualities beyond being a fighter, which could have been the lesson Anakin intended to teach her.
After Ahsoka’s training is completed, Anakin smiles at her, saying that there is hope for her before he disappears. Ahsoka successfully makes her way back to the world of the living. Her character becomes more like how we saw her in “Star Wars Rebels” instead of the serious one we saw earlier in the series.
Episode 5 of “Ahsoka” has left an indelible mark on the Star Wars saga. It provided fans with a deeper understanding of Anakin Skywalker’s complexity and showcased Ahsoka Tano’s transformative journey. If you haven’t watched it yet, you can catch the episode on Disney+.
