Getting Sabine back into fighting form with a lightsaber, Ahsoka takes over from Huyang (David Tennant) to try the practice style known as “Zatochi”. Giving Sabine a masked helmet to block her physical sight, the training technique is a callback to Luke Skywalker’s initial training from Obi-Wan Kenobi as seen in A New Hope.

Appearing before a New Republic Senatorial Committee to requisition a task force to help Ahsoka and Sabine, Hera’s proposal was declined with the belief that not enough evidence was present for an Imperial resurgence, nor Thrawn’s return. Likewise, it was also suggested that Hera simply wanted more resources to help in her ongoing quest to find Ezra Bridger, long thought to have died along with Thrawn as seen in Star Wars Rebels’ series finale.

Despite Huyang’s confirmation that Sabine carries a very low aptitude to wield the Force and would have never been selected by the Jedi Order to join their ranks, Ahsoka counters with the truth that “The Force resides in all living things”. As such, Tano is still of the mind that Sabine does have the ability to use the Force (provided she receives the right kind of training)

Upon entering the planetary orbit around Seatos, Ahsoka and Sabine’s T-6 shuttle was attacked by Shin Hati, Marrok, and a whole squadron of fighters. As a result, Ahsoka took it upon herself to exit the ship and defend it while Sabine made repairs, blocking the incoming shots with her lightsabers while standing on the ship’s wing, proving her incredible ability and skill as a former Jedi Knight.

Following Huyang’s scan of Morgan Elsbeth’s Eye of Sion, he confirms that the structure is a giant hyperspace ring, not unlike the rings used by the Jedi as seen in Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars animated series. It’s also confirmed that the Eye can travel to other galaxies (such as the one where Thrawn resides).

During Shin and Marrok’s pursuit of Ahsoka and Sabine in the Seatos’ atmosphere, all the ships flew directly through a pod of star whales known as Purrgil. Likewise, Huyang also confirmed the Star Wars theory that ancient hyperspace routes leading to other galaxies were discovered long ago by following the migration paths of these creatures.

Having both failed to destroy Ahsoka and Sabine’s shuttle, it’s clear that there are some underlying tensions between Morgan Elsbeth and Shin Hati. As such, it’s clear that Shin’s loyalty is to her master Baylan Skoll alone, having little respect for their employer who hired them to help locate Thrawn.

Serving as the final scene of Ahsoka episode 3, Baylan Skoll sends a collection of troops and HK assassin droids into the forest to hunt down Ahsoka and Sabine hiding within. These are the same soldiers who were in service to Elsbeth as seen in The Mandalorian season 2 with Ahsoka’s live-action debut on the planet Corvus, having enlisted the help of the Mandalorian Din Djarin to arrest Elsbeth and learn of the star map to Thrawn which Tano located in Ahsoka’s first episode.
