What Happened In Previous Episodes?
In the opening episodes, Ahsoka’s mission is to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn, who’s been off the radar for nearly a decade. Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto), Thrawn’s trusted confidante, has unearthed a pathway to a far-off galaxy named Peridea, where she suspects Thrawn is hiding. She’s even crafted a vessel, the Eye of Sion, to journey to this remote galaxy.
On the other side, Baylan Skoll, an ex-Jedi, has his own motives, thinking that finding Thrawn will bestow great power upon him. Ahsoka, with her companions Sabine (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) and Hera (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), deciphers Morgan’s intentions and successfully plants a tracking device on a ship carrying a vital hyperdrive component. Baylan anticipates a clash with Ahsoka, laying the groundwork for what’s to come.
