A week removed from Ahsoka's explosive sixth episode and fans are still buzzing about it. Of course, it's hard not to geek out on an episode that featured the respective returns of Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn, as well as Huyang's hair-rasing narration of the Star Wars franchise's opening crawl "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".
But apart from those goodies the episode delivered, it turns out that there's one easter egg casual viewers probably missed.
Ahsoka Episode 6 Included Massive Baylan Skoll Easter Egg that Could Connect to Dave Filoni's MandoVerse Film
Eagle-eyed Star Wars fans were able to spot a major easter egg in Ahsoka Episode 6, titled "Far, Far Away". One scene briefly shows Baylan's wrist gadget and after taking a closer look at it, fans find out that Aurebesh text is actually displayed on the mechanism.
It later went viral on social media, revealing a list of names that are all connected to the franchise — Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Ben (presumably Ben Solo who would later become Kylo Ren in the sequel trilogy).
Now, one would think that it's nothing more than just a simple easter egg Filoni snuck in but the reference fueled an interesting theory that Baylan actually drew inspiration from Heir to the Empire's Joruus C'Baoth and the names included on his wrist are part of his hit list.
For the uninitiated, Joruus is a demented clone of a Jedi who was present during the Clone Wars. He later aligned himself with Grand Admiral Thrawn to capture Luke, Leia, and her twin children, Jaida and Jacen who are now part of Star Wars' Expanded Universe.
Their grand scheme was to train and establish them as members of a dark Jedi Order.
New episodes of Ahsoka premiere every Tuesday on Disney+.
