This article contains spoilers and theories about Star Wars: Ahsoka and its first two episodes.
Star Wars: Ahsoka, the new Star Wars series, has captured our hearts. The Dave Filoni-directed production, starring Rosario Dawson, is part of the post-Episode VI New Republic era but features numerous mysteries, all-new characters, and emotional tributes to the leads in its plots. As the series conquers Disney+ by telling us the story of an exiled Jedi following the events of the animated series Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars, there’s an enemy that’s been driving us crazy. Who is Inquisitor Marrok?
The antagonists of this Filoni series carry a lot of weight. On one side we have former renegade Jedi Baylan Skoll (played by the late Ray Stevenson, to whom the first chapter is dedicated) and his deadly apprentice Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno) who entertain one of the most epic and thrilling encounters of all time. We Wear Fiction But there is an enemy, masked and armed with a formidable double-beam red lightsaber, who fights Ahsoka at the end of the second episode. Yes, he’s a referee, and it seems his identity has remained hidden for so long since Darth Vader used it to wipe out Jedi remnant across the galaxy that Filoni might surprise us with a real plot twist.
We’re talking about Inquisitor Marrok, a big rival for Ahsoka trying to get through in another lightsaber encounter in the series. Given that Dave Filoni brought so many Clone Wars and Rebels characters to build his story, could Marrok have appeared earlier in either of these series? Well, the villains’ mission in this story is none other than retrieving Grand Admiral Thrawn from the distant and dark galaxy he is in, but let’s not forget that both Ahsoka and Sabine have a similar goal: for good find thing with Ezra Bridger who is also in the same dangerous spot.
There is a group of fans who think Marrok Ezra is Bridger
Here comes the theory: Ever since Star Wars: Ahsoka was announced and the first promotional materials appeared, there has been a group of fans who believe that this villain, faceless, with great abilities in the Force and wielding a lightsaber typical of the Inquisitors, is none other than Ezra Bridger. Yes, we know it’s a leap of faith and would mean a very devastating twist in the script, but it could be possible. It is believed that after the events of the Battle of Lothal in which he and Thrawn disappeared, the Grand Admiral may have drawn him to the Dark Side thanks to his superior intelligence and cunning, torturing him and weaponizing him in Thrawn’s service . The Imperial Remains. Yes, there are side-notes to this complicated theorem: How did you end up in the employ of Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) to help bring back the Chiss? Why was nothing known before? Well, it’s complicated, but it’s Star Wars and there’s always room to find a coherent way to deliver drama.
A character like Ezra who has fallen to the dark side will make for an interesting plot point, especially given Ahsoka and Anakin Skywalker’s pasts. One of the rhymes that made George Lucas fall in love so much. We’ll have to wait for the next episodes to find out for sure.
