Ashley Eckstein posted a very nice behind the scenes look on the Ahsoka finale. On StarWars.com she posted a series of emails she exchanged with Dave Filoni that sheds a lot of light on Ahsoka.
Ashley: Wow, she really is changing a lot. I knew this was coming but I think the change is hitting me now and I’m realizing it’s really moving forward and in a different direction, not just for one episode and then going back. It’s great! The story is fantastic and I am honored to be a part of it. I want to talk to you more about this next week. Why does she walk away again, versus go back?
Dave: Ahsoka walks away because she is conflicted. She is not mad at Anakin, she knows doing this will hurt him, but she hopes he understands. She is frustrated with the Jedi Council, there is a feeling of betrayal. Much of this has to do with Anakin’s training and attachment rubbing off on her. She also leaves because while she believes Barriss was wrong, she cannot deny that there is truth to what Barriss was saying, especially in light of her own recent experiences. She needs perspective.
