iTunes May Have Just Leaked A Major Spoiler For Tonight’s Episodes Of Star Wars Rebels

A new image found on iTunes uses a screencap of a major moment in the Star Wars Rebels episode “A World Between Worlds” – and as it turns out, the screencap in question might just be a big spoiler that will answer a question fans have been asking about for years.


Spoilers ahead. (Duh.)


To cut to the chase, here’s what the screencap looks like:


Leaked image of "A World Between Worlds" by iTunes from starwarsrebels



So there you have it: Ahsoka Tano is back. Or perhaps I should rephrase that… From the looks of this image, we’re getting a good look at what happened in her duel with Darth Vader after she held her ground so that Ezra and Kanan could escape Malachor. It might look like a frame from “Twilight of the Apprentice”, but make no mistake, this is a new image based on the lighting and the angle itself.


The last we saw of these two characters happened in that very episode – Darth Vader is in a shot of him limping out of the Sith Temple, while Ahsoka can briefly be seen walking back in after we catch an image of a green and white Convor flying in her direction. What this exactly meant is unclear, as we don’t know whether or not Ahsoka survived and she was just walking down, or if an image of herself in the Force just happened to appear there as a lingering presence. Furthermore, we already know that the Convor will be back since it was included in the trailer for the final set of Rebels stories. So what’s so interesting about this bird? Simple – it has the same colors that the Daughter of Mortis did.



In The Clone Wars, there was a trilogy of episodes in which Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Ahsoka all visited a Force-Planet known as Mortis, where a trio of Force Entities – known as the Daughter (who represented the Light Side of the Force), the Son (who represented the Dark Side of the Force), and the Father (who represented the Balance of the Force) – challenged Anakin in order to determine if he was the Chosen One. While Anakin succeeded, the Son possessed Ahsoka as a way to try and escape the planet to wreak havoc on the galaxy, and he later killed her once she had served her purpose in his plan. However, the Daughter gave her life so that Ahsoka could live once more – and while all three of the Force Entities would end up dying, a Convor resembling the Daughter has appeared in the years since the trials on the planet.


In Rebels, they’ve not only shown that Convor a couple of times (along with another Convor that appeared a few times in Season 3), but the last trailer for Season 4 definitively shows the Force Entities on a mural, heavily-implying that they’re going to play a big part in the last few episodes. With the Daughter so intrinsically tied to Ahsoka herself, it’s looking like the episode will use that element to reveal whatever became of our favorite Togruta Jedi (sorry, Shaak-Ti). And it might just be that we’ll see more of her in whatever state she appears in.


So, what is the fate of Ahsoka? Is she really dead? Did Darth Vader have a change of heart, deciding to spare Ahsoka, with the caveat of marooning her on a dead world? Did Ahsoka simply trick her former master into thinking that she killed him, and she’s been hiding in a Force-Nexus ever since? Has the Force itself secretly protected her from dying fully due to the Daughter’s powers? In any case, we won’t have to wait very much longer to find out.


One last thing… Palpatine’s apparently in this episode. Exciting times!

    There is zero way that Vader would spare Ahsoka. He is prime evil Vader before knowing he has a son. He is driven by anger and hate and the pain of his past. He would want Ahsoka to be destroyed, not to be kept around. I call malarkey on that theory.

    • February 26, 2018 at 8:07 pm

      Yep. Every time we see Vader show his humanity, he’s lessened as a villain and what Luke manages to bring out of him is all that less remarkable a feat.

      • February 26, 2018 at 9:13 pm

        During this time period especially. He’s been Vader for 18 years now, he’s twisted and evil.

    • February 26, 2018 at 9:39 pm

      I don’t think Vader killed Ahsoka, it was probably the huge explosion that happened after Kanan and Ezra took off. We shall find out!

      • February 27, 2018 at 2:05 am

        I didn’t actually see the episode (only seen season 1 of Rebels), but I’m pretty sure if you didn’t see her die on screen it didn’t happen. They’re not going to kill a major character off-screen. Considering it’s on the Disney channel I’m relatively confident they won’t kill of Ahsoka or Ezra, Kanan is another thing, he’s not the one 9 year olds are gonna pretend they are when roleplaying lightsaber duels etc.

    • February 26, 2018 at 11:55 pm

      I’d be amazed if she didn’t die and isn’t some sort of force manifestation now.

    • February 27, 2018 at 7:49 am

      Tell your sister… You were *right*… You were riiiiiiiiight…

    I didn’t expect Rebels to become The Clone Wars Thread Tying Show but that’s Filoni for you.

    • February 27, 2018 at 9:06 am

      It’s rather how different comic series from the same author work with the big two, DC and Marvel. An author can conclude one series but still use elements he introduced or set up in the next one. Think Hickman’s body of Hellboy-esque Marvel work or Rick Remender’s conclusion of the remaining threads from ‘Uncanny X-Force’ in ‘Uncanny Avengers’.

      Plus Filoni has kind of earned it with Clone Wars having been cancelled rather than properly concluded as everyone working on it planned to do.

      • February 27, 2018 at 2:50 pm

        Yeah, I get it, but I don’t like it.

        • February 27, 2018 at 4:59 pm

          I can get that it can be an acquired taste. Personally, I like it just because of the circumstances and the story being told, but I understand why it can put some people off.

  • February 26, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    The Emperor killing Ezra would be a good way for him to go.

    Hopefully Ahsoka’s dead, and the convor is just symbolic, similar to the whole Kanan/Dume the Wolf thing.

    Either way, I’m so pumped for tonight!!

  • February 26, 2018 at 8:46 pm

    I think it’s Obvious. Ahsoka is Snoke… but also Rey’s mother via Obi-wan. They were lonely… anyway when Obi died she became an alcoholic.

    And on top of all that… Ben still wasn’t lying. Ahsoka sold Rey for a quick fix and got drunk, wrecking her ship. They buried her on Jakku! Someone found her DNA and cloned her with mixed results. So she’s super pissed and conquering the galaxy like Anakin taught her. That’s also why she doesn’t remember Rey. She was mid drunken rant when Kylo tricked her. So… she’s dead again.

    It all adds up! Inescapable logic!

  • February 26, 2018 at 11:34 pm

    I hope the series ends with Ezra and Thrawn heading out into the unknown regions together. That way, they don’t actually have to say what we all know to be true about Ezra.

  • February 27, 2018 at 3:30 am

    Well…have fun.

    I guess we’re only just getting “Jedi Knight” amd “Dume” tonight.

    Talk about lame.

  • February 27, 2018 at 4:07 am

    I didn’t read the spoiler, the story of Kanan is now one of my favorite superseding the bumbling failure Luke Skywalker. Kanan knows how to go out as a powerful Jedi.

    • February 27, 2018 at 7:04 am

      Luke died saving a lot of people including his sister

      • February 27, 2018 at 7:48 am

        More importantly, he gave the GFFA *hope* when it seemed like it was going to be doomed to First Order rule forever. That was the entire point of the Broomboi scene – because of what he did, he’s effectively set the stage for there to be an entire *generation* of Luke Skywalkers saving the GFFA.

        It bothers me that people think that Luke’s ending wasn’t meaningful just because he didn’t do any wacky canon-breaking Force Unleashed sh*t at the end. Or that he’s not going to appear in SWE9 at all, because of f*cking course he will.

          I found his force projection to be some crazy sh*t though. Back when I played Saga Edition our GM wouldn’t let us use a force power that had the same effect as Luke’s force projection because he thought it was just too powerful. I feel like projecting a copy of yourself across the galaxy is pretty nuts. I honestly have a hard time thinking of anything more powerful than that. Even Starkiller using the force to pull down a Star Destroyer in Unleashed isn’t as crazy as this. I’m glad they had Luke do something so incredibly powerful.

          • February 27, 2018 at 3:23 pm

            That’s a terrible reason to dislike it. Your GM? lol

    • February 27, 2018 at 8:17 am

      Luke joined the force while saving the Rebellion/Resistance and bringing hope back to the galaxy (New Hope – remember?).

      People need to stop being so butthurt about TLJ and realise that there is nothing really out of character about Luke in the movie. Failure before redemption is a Skywalker family trait.

      The only people who should be upset by his portrayal in the movie are those who unreasonably expected him to be the perfect hero and infallible action man.

    • February 27, 2018 at 3:22 pm

      Then you understand nothing.

  • February 27, 2018 at 5:02 am

    Just finished up the new episodes. Damn. Don’t want to give away spoilers, but that was well done.

    • February 27, 2018 at 5:54 am

      I think the complete opposite. Literally nothing happened.

      • February 27, 2018 at 6:26 am


        The overall story wasn’t advanced much, but I felt like it was a cool episode.

        I don’t want to explain my reasoning too much, as I don’t want to give any spoilers here, but I really enjoyed the integration of the past and future, along with finally getting the answer to what happened with Ahsoka.

        • February 27, 2018 at 3:59 pm

          I think the introduction of Time Travel in the Star Wars universe was a little much. What does Ahsoka do now that she’s still in the past? It’s insane.

          • February 27, 2018 at 5:37 pm

            I can understand that point of view. It is weird, but precedent was set in the Old EU when Jason Solo learned to flow walk. I know that doesn’t make it any less strange, but it’s not unheard of.

    • February 27, 2018 at 4:08 pm

      I never would have guessed that Rebels would be this good. When it started, it was very childish and ‘dumbed down’. Between Rebels and Clone Wars – I’ve come to realize that when you have a Dave Filoni written and directed episode, its going to be epic. Kinda like when you would get a Joss Whedon episode on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

      Really looking forward to what Dave has up his sleeve for the new Disney Streaming Service.

  • February 27, 2018 at 8:18 am

    Why would you make an article about the spoiler lol

  • February 27, 2018 at 4:15 pm

    So, I’ve got a general question –

    Clone Wars and Rebels have seen some great moments. Most of their stories, for lack of a better term, have been written by ‘committee’.

    For Force Awakens and Last Jedi Kathy Kennedy has made it clear that the directors were ‘let loose to tell whatever story they wanted’.

    Does that make any sense? Why would the cartoons be more scrutinized, more thought-out than the live action films? Am I the only one that likes the animated stories better than anything since Return of the Jedi?

    • February 27, 2018 at 6:19 pm

      The animated shows take so much time to produce — the writers need to be way ahead of the game in order to maintain plot consistency (if you call any of this stuff consistent).

  • February 27, 2018 at 6:28 pm

    Yeah, so I now know. Bit silly if you ask me and presumably done so as not to have to kill off too many characters. Oh well.

  • February 27, 2018 at 6:35 pm

    I’m not big on this show, or Dave Filoni either, but I gotta point something out in his defense. Filoni didn’t plan on having “The Clone Wars” taken out from under him, nor did he have intentions of creating “Rebels” until it was mandated after Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm. So in the end, we get sort of a compromise and permission by Disney for Filoni to tie up loose plot threads from TCW. For some fans, it works; for others it doesn’t. Or… if you’re like me, it feels a bit saccharine — it goes in and out with some interesting moments, but no real long lasting impression.

    • February 27, 2018 at 6:48 pm

      Filoni has a limited budget, his audience is mostly young children and he only usually only gets 20 minutes per episode to set up and wrap up plotlines. If this guy did not have these restricitons god knows what he would be able to do. I feel like fans permanently underestimate him but he is a beast. SPOILER Kanan’s death was executed better than most deaths we have seen in the saga movies. A truly emotional scene and I can only imagine how powerful it had been in a live action movie. SPOILER END

      • February 27, 2018 at 6:51 pm

        I hear ya — but if Kanan spent less time setting up the exposition for his own demise, he’d still be alive. (I realize he had to go somehow, it just feels like I’ve seen this story so many times already.)

        • February 27, 2018 at 6:58 pm

          I don’t think it was about “if” he was going to die but more about the “how”. He managed to find peace moments before his death, something that Filoni even managed to pull of with the death of Maul. Kanan got one last moment where he could truly see Hera one last time before he had to go. The whole scene worked really, really well and managed to trigger an emotional response that I would not have anticipated even though I knew that Kanan would have to die at one point.

          • February 27, 2018 at 7:04 pm

            I won’t disagree — I’m not too harsh on this show. It’s fine for what it is. But as far as I’m concerned, Maul died in 1999, yet my lack of emotional investment gives me no motivation to argue about it with anyone.

            (There is a huge unresolved plot point as to what his lower-half is up to. Perhaps that’ll be the the main antagonist of the Obi-Wan film?)

          • February 27, 2018 at 7:11 pm

            Haha good one! 😀

          • February 27, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    I’m glad I didn’t read this before watching the episodes.
