Ahsoka has Sith eyes for what reason? The most recent Ahsoka episode had a key clue about potential future evil from our lightsaber-wielding hero, which was picked up on by astute Star Wars fans. However, we’re crossing our fingers that she’ll continue to be on the lighter side for the time being.
Following the previous Star Wars series from recent years, Ahsoka has given Disney Plus subscribers their newest taste of Star Wars. The Ahsoka cast is led by Rosario Dawson, and in last week’s Ahsoka episode 5, Hayden Christensen made a surprise appearance to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker.
In the episode, two of the finest Star Wars characters encountered one other in the World Between Worlds and got into a lightsaber and wits duel. Ahsoka once flashed a highly recognisable shade of yellow in her eyes. What does Ahsoka Tano’s future hold as the Star Wars film series progresses and why does she have Sith eyes?
Why did Ahsoka have Sith eyes?
While battling Anakin, Ahsoka briefly displayed yellow Sith eyes, demonstrating that if she hadn’t taken the decision to reject the Dark Side, she too may have caved in.
The finest Star Wars villains, especially those who have been tempted by the Sith, are associated with their menacing yellow eyes. But given that our heroine is donning Ahsoka’s white robe in classic Gandalf fashion, we wouldn’t wager on her joining the Dark Side of the Force.
During their battle, Ahsoka’s eyes glow yellow at a crucial juncture when she would have accidentally “killed” Anakin had she given in to her rage. As we are all aware, the dark side is often characterised by rage. In the World Between Worlds, the conflict was mostly ideological rather than physical.
Ahsoka couldn’t let her past consume her if she truly intended to live to face Grand Admiral Thrawn. She wouldn’t have come out of the waves of Seatos if she had killed her old boss. Despite Disney’s best efforts, we cannot have an Ahsoka show without Ahsoka, just as we cannot have a Boba Fett show without Boba Fett.
In essence, Dave Filoni is bowing in recognition of the precarious position Ahsoka has always had. She had never been a traditional Jedi, thus she undoubtedly had the potential to be vulnerable to evil. This time, she made the proper decision.
