Conspiracy Report: The Fate of Ahsoka

With the amazing ending to season five of The Clone Wars, everyone is wondering about the fate of Ahsoka Tano. While our Bothan spies haven’t been able to find much, are steadfast Jawa soothsayers haven’t let us down. Fair warning, we’re going into serious spoiler territory.

Ahsoka Tano was a rising star in the Jedi Order. She was the hero of the next generation of soon-to-be Jedi Knights. During the Clone Wars, she fought hordes of Separatists droids, Force users such as Asajj Ventress, bounty hunters like Cade Bane and Aurra Sing, and even the Supreme Commander of the Droid Army of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, General Grievous…and lived to tell about it. As if fighting underwater battles and Geonosian zombies wasn’t bad enough, Ahsoka even prevailed against possession by a living embodiment of the Force during the Mortis incident. Fighting side-by-side with Anakin, Ahsoka earned her spot as a legend of her time.

But now Ahsoka has turned her back on the Jedi Order. She has lost her faith in a system that no longer trusted her. Like Asajj Ventress, Ahsoka must find her path.

Fate #1

While Ahsoka may have turned her back on the Jedi, the influence of her master will be hard to escape from. She’s a warrior and there’s a war on. Not one to switch sides, Ahsoka will continue to fight for the Republic in any way she can help. Small resistance groups like the one on Onderon will flourish with her help. The clones will look up to this figure who shook off the shackles of the Jedi Order and continued the fight. Alas such attention will bring her unwanted company in the form of Maul. The former Sith apprentice will seek Ahsoka and use her to draw out Skywalker. In an epic duel with gut wrenching drama, Maul will kill Ahsoka, thus sending Anakin one step closer to the dark side as the chosen one draws upon his anger to destroy Maul. All a coy part of Palpatine’s sinister plan.

Fate #2

While a warrior, Ahsoka will not be eager to join up with the Republic which was so quick to turn against her. As much as she might want to distance herself from the Jedi, she’ll want to be just as far away from Admiral Tarkin. Looking to Asajj Ventress for help, the two will pair up as a bounty hunter team. They’ll run into other bounty hunters like Sugi and Embo, traveling across the galaxy performing minor good deeds for reasonable pay. Asajj and Ahsoka will soar to the top of the ranks of the bounty hunting community. Their experience in the Clone Wars coupled with their Force abilities will make them par none. Such success will gain the ire of bounty hunters like Cade Bane. Bounty hunters have to make a living like everyone else. If all the top bounties are being taken by a pair of upstarts, what’s left for the rest of them? Bane will recruit a team of similar minded bounty hunters (Boba Fett, Aurra Sing, Bossk, maybe even Dengar), and they’ll go after Ahsoka and Asajj. However, even the best bounty hunters in the galaxy will be no match against the deadly duo. Desperate for a win, Bane will call in his wild card: Durge. The unstoppable Gen’dai juggernaut will tear the two apart…but will be thwarted just shy of killing them.

Licking their wounds from their defeat, Asajj and Ahsoka will part ways, walking off into the sunset during the last episode of the show. The Clone Wars will continue, the events of Revenge of the Sith will unfold, and off on the fringes, Ahsoka will survive. But she’ll be back…for Star Wars Episode VII!

Fate #3

Ahsoka needs to find her center. She had a path, but it’s changed direction, and now she’s not sure which way it leads. She’ll do a little freedom fighting, maybe even a stint at bounty hunting with Asajj. After all, Ahsoka owes her one. But one thing will lead to another, and ultimately Ahsoka will end up back in the war. This time, however, Ahsoka will see things differently. During her time away, she’ll begin to see the atrocities and crimes of the Republic and the Jedi against the Separatists. She’ll see examples of Separatists who aren’t mindless machines trying to conquer the galaxy, but people just trying to defend their homeworlds. At one point she’ll get swept up in a cause, not necessarily joining the Separatist ranks, but fighting side-by-side to try deter needless bloodshed. Ahsoka will fall further and further to the gray side: neither light nor dark, Republic nor Separatist. Yet the Jedi and the Republic leadership will not see it that way. They’ll label Ahsoka an enemy. The deed will get handed down to Anakin. He’ll find her, and the momentous fight that might very well outshine his duel with Obi-Wan will commence. Anakin versus Ahsoka. We know how this will end. There could be no more dramatic ending for The Clone Wars than to see Anakin forced to fight his former apprentice, and for them both to fall.

Of course there are many possible fates for Ahsoka. As Yoda would say, “Hard to see, the future is.” Regardless, we’re looking forward to it.

  1. Maybe she is the “light in the darkness” from the Fate of the Jedi novels?
