Ahsoka - Dreams and Madness

The penultimate episode of Ahsoka confirms the show's purpose as a prequel and filler to the "real story" Disney will no doubt get around to eventually. It's also important to note that, as in the case of many episodes of the series, there are absolutely no consequences for any characters in this episode. What "Part Seven" does offer is some Sabine (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) and Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi), who apparently has gotten less adept with the Force since we saw him last, time together with her being more than a bit coy about how she managed to reach him, Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) making to the other galaxy and eventually to the planet for a reunion, and Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) using the resources as his disposal to stall the Jedi providing more time for his escape.

We open with Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) facing potential court martial for her actions in disobeying orders, only to be saved by the intuitive play of an old friend (meaning no consequences for her). A galaxy away, Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) abandons his apprentice for his own (still not explained) side quest which provides another fight with Ahsoka but both former Jedi walk away unscathed (no consequences there), and despite being abandoned first by her master and later by the Imperial troops, Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) walks away unscathed as well. In fact, by the end of the episode no character is in a better or worse situation that when the episode began as Ahsoka offers another episode that provides fan-friendly moments but little in terms of plot development or story progression.
