It helps that the extended firefight within the hangar additionally emphasizes the tragedy of the state of affairs and the truth that Ahsoka is preventing for her life towards a gaggle of troopers who would have gladly given their lives for her simply hours earlier than. Ahsoka might have taken the simple manner out by following Maul’s instance and preventing to kill, but she did her finest to spare the lives of her males. Much more tragic is the truth that her efforts had been all in useless. The ending provides no purpose to imagine anybody apart from Ahsoka and Rex survived the crash. Ahsoka gained nothing by preventing honorably, however the truth she tried in any respect is a testomony to her heroism. She is probably not a Jedi, however the Pressure is together with her.
Given how instantly the earlier episodes paralleled and mirrored the occasions of Revenge of the Sith, it is just a little disappointing we do not see that factor repeated within the finale. I’d have preferred to see these occasions someway sync up with Anakin and Obi-Wan’s battle of Mustafar or Anakin’s rebirth as Darth Vader. It additionally may need been good to see a extra prolonged epilogue sequence displaying how Ahsoka and Rex went into hiding and what set Ahsoka down the trail towards changing into a Insurgent agent. Did she ever make contact with Yoda or Obi-Wan? Granted, we have now the Ahsoka novel to handle a few of that, but it surely nonetheless would have been good to see just a little farther previous the occasions of Episode III.Nonetheless, the closing scenes are wonderful about setting a somber temper and making that transition from the Prequels into the gloomy Imperial period. The emphasis on silence and mournful reflection actually seals the deal. The ultimate shot of a robed Ahsoka considering her future appears an intentional callback to the finale of Star Wars Rebels. And although we do not get a brand new perspective on Anakin’s closing descent into darkness, we do get a really welcome closing scene of Vader surveying the wreckage of the Star Destroyer and discovering Ahsoka’s discarded saber. With out Vader uttering a single phrase, it is clear the burden of the warfare and all of the empty victories and painful losses stays with him. And in the end, The Clone Wars has a real and correct finale.
