It also raises the question, had Ahsoka been dead this whole time? Did the temple crush her and she was gone until Ezra reached back in time and pulled her out of the battle? That would certainly explain her absence but, if that’s true, wouldn’t bringing her back suddenly change the events of the past two seasons? Or is it possible a future Ezra always saves Ahsoka in that moment after her fight with Vader? But if that’s the case, where did she go after that moment? As is usually the case with time travel, there’s a lot to unpack here.
I might be cross-referencing fandoms here, but going by what little knowledge of time travel & paradoxes from Doctor Who (apparently my mother has become a Whovian at some point? Go figure...) I think that since Ezra was in a place where time didn't really exist and everything was happening at once, when he pulled Ahsoka into the World Between Worlds, he sort of... put her in flux, for lack of a better word, and then when she returned through the Malachor portal, time started flowing normally for her again. So, I think Ahsoka's fate was always to be pulled out of time by Ezra and then returned to that moment. She's just been hiding out somewhere, probably Malachor, waiting for time to catch up to Ezra and the Ghost crew in that moment to preserve the timeline.
And since that doesn't even make any sense to me, and I'm the one who said it, I choose to paraphrase Captain Marvel: "There should really be a handbook for time-travel..."
I'm still holding out hope that the new show will involve the New Jedi Order, telling the story of how Ben Solo met Snoke and fell to the Dark Side. That's a story Episodes 7 and 8 skirted around and one that they could easily make a series out of.
Going on Star Wars: Resistance, I'm inclined to say it'll be like Rebels, following a group of people who are members of the Resistance.
Spread out the hashtag #SaveTheCloneWars.
Dude, they legally cannot make more Clone Wars. Cartoon Network/Warner Bros. won't hand over the rights. I adore The Clone Wars, it's the show that got me through my dad's death and inspired me to become a writer, but it's not coming back. I hate to say it, but it's time to let it go...

Right?! I'd love a show about the Resistance eventually, when we've got the full Sequel Tril/Resistance story, but there is soooo much more potential there...
TCW is my favorite type of Star Wars it's what got me into LOVING the series as a whole. I'm one of the fans who grew up with it. I miss the days of watching a new episode of TCW every Friday night. I feel TCW is better than the movies (yes I said that gasp). It's the last thing George Lucas was involved in. It has so many great stories. It's better than everything in the current canon. Through Ahsoka's eyes we see Anakin's struggle from a different perspective. She starts out as a kind of annoying tweeny Snips and turns into a really excellent character. I cry at the end of season 5. I love TCW but every time I think of it I get a bit sad at the ending we never got. It’s a shame that TCW just ended. It was really ramping up to drop us off right at the start of ROTS just like the original CW cartoon did. I really want to see the battle of Mandalore and Asoka’s and Rex’s escape from the 501st immediately after Order 66.
I was one of the fans who grew up with it too, I know. I really do feel your pain, man, but... it's been five years. It's legally complicated. And I remember Filoni saying that he didn't want to finish it without George there to help. Just because it's done doesn't mean we can't still love it; I can still quote some episodes of Ben 10, Kim Possible and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends word-for-word and those shows haven't been on in years. You never have to stop loving it, but at some point you have to let it go and accept that they're not going to bring it back no matter how much the fans beg for it. Same goes for the EU, much as I hate to say it―everyone's so busy looking back at the fast that they can't be excited for the future...
Resistance could be a bit tricky - it will face the risk of being too similar to Rebels. Buti t's not a bad idea at all.
Personally, I'd love to see some Old Republic stuff, possibly bringing some pretty awesome characters back into canon.
(Is it too obvious I've played KOTOR recently? :P )
The series finale is upon us. Sadly, I won't be able to see until tomorrow, due to time zones (and also due to having to get up early).
Now that the series is over, I have one last theory to share: if Jacen Syndulla is Kanan's son, that means he's probably Force-sensitive. Think about it a second; he's a young, Force-attuned boy growing up after the Battle of Endor...
Oh, I'll just say it. Jacen will most likely be one of the first padawans in Luke's New Jedi Order! He could be the main character in Filoni's next project, if it's set in the New Republic era, so the story arc from The Clone Wars and Rebels would continue! Jacen would enter Jedi training alongside Ben Solo, and that would make--
Oh... right. I mean, if no one else was going to make the Jacen Syndulla/Jacen Solo parallel.
What do you think?
