AHSOKA Delivered a Heartwarming Reunion Between Sabine and Ezra

Since the start of Ahsoka, Mandalorian warrior, Jedi trainee, and former rebel Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) has been single-minded about her objective. For Sabine, it’s to find her old friend Ezra Bridger, who exiled himself, and Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn, into unknown space at the end of Star Wars Rebels. When we meet Sabine again in Ahsoka, years have passed since she lost her Ghost crewmate. But despite training as a Jedi under Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson), Sabine Wren still had one goal in mind—find Ezra. She even allowed ex-Jedi mercenaries Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) and Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) to find Thrawn in order for her to locate her friend as well. And in episode six of Ahsoka, “Far, Far Away,” the reunion between Sabine and Ezra finally took place.

Sabine Is Taken to Grand Admiral Thrawn, Demanding to See Ezra

Taken to the planet Peridea in another galaxy, as a willing prisoner of Baylan Skoll and Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto), Sabine confronts her old enemy, Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen). Since she helped Skoll by not destroying the orb that contained the map to Peridea, Baylan promised to allow Sabine the chance to find the lost Ezra. Thrawn lets Baylan keep his word to Sabine (to an extent). He gave her an animal called a howler and intel on Ezra’s location. She journeys into the wilds of the planet looking for her friend.

As she travels across the bleak terrain of Peridea, Sabine encounters bandits and then a species called the Noti. The aliens look like adorable anthropomorphic snails. They can curl up into their shells and hide from predators, appearing to be rocks. If it sounds like the trolls from Frozen, well, it’s because they’re very much like the trolls from Frozen. When Sabine tries to talk to the Noti she encounters, she notices it is wearing a symbol of the Rebel Alliance. She realizes this creature must know Ezra. She follows the Noti to his village, a settlement of several homes that look like larger versions of their shells. Soon, Sabine discovers her old friend from the Ghost crew, Ezra Bridger, is living among the Noti. Eman Esfandi plays adult Ezra.

Seeing one another after a decade, Ezra and Sabine finally have their reunion in Ahsoka and hug it out. Ezra is now a full-grown man, as it’s a been a decade since the events of the Rebels finale. Sabine hesitates to tell Ezra details about how she found him, probably realizing that he’ll be deeply disappointed knowing her actions might help bring Thrawn back home. How that conversation will go down will have to wait, as right now the two old friends are just happy to see each other.

Unknown to Sabine and Ezra, Thrawn has sent Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati out to kill them. Thus, Thrawn sort of keeps Baylan’s word by allowing her to find her missing friend. What he forgot to mention was he’d be willing to kill her right after. But we have a feeling neither of these old friends is going down so easily.
