Ahsoka thinks about the implications of reaching Thrawn and Bridger, giving Wren pause since she remains determined to find her friend. Moments later, they are attacked by several of Skoll’s forces, but are able to hold them off. Fearing that Skoll will acquire the coordinates to Thrawn’s location, Ahsoka and Wren head to his base but are intercepted by Hati and Marrok. Ahsoka kills Marrok and continues on alone, while Wren stays behind to hold off Hati. Ahsoka reaches Skoll, and the two engage in a duel; Ahsoka is able to retrieve the map, but she tosses it aside after it burns her hand. Skoll overpowers and sends Ahsoka plummeting into the ocean as Wren watches in horror. Wren then holds the map at gunpoint, but Skoll manipulates her into handing it over, promising her that she will see Bridger again. After Thrawn’s location is revealed, Skoll destroys the map and boards the Eye of Sion with Hati and Wren. A small fleet of New Republic fighters, led by Syndulla, arrives at Seatos and tries to stop the freighter from jumping into hyperspace, but fails to do so. Meanwhile, Ahsoka awakens in the “World Between Worlds”, where she is seemingly reunited with her former Master, Anakin Skywalker.

What did I miss?
We almost died.
I think I know how to find Ezra.
EZRA: Hey, Sabine. I’m counting on you to see this through.
HUYANG: Have you kept up with your training?
HUYANG: Well, perhaps it is time to begin again.
Unfortunately, I won’t be joining you for this one. And neither will the fleet.
Let’s see what Morgan’s been hiding out here.
Two-Six, with me.
HUYANG: I am tracking two squadrons of three crafts.
SABINE: Hey! Hold it steady.
Learn to anticipate.
Now’s not the time for a lesson.
A craft with these power levels would be capable of a hyperspace jump of astonishing speed and distance.
The Jedi have taken refuge in the forest.
Hunt them down.
I’m gonna try again.
Come in, Home One, do you read us?
Hera, do you copy?
Come in, Home One, this is Fulcrum. Repeat, do you read us, over?
(SIGHS) Still no good.
I will try to cannibalize some wiring from the secondary motivator and see if I can rewire the transmitter.
Comms are still down and the primary power converter is offline.
We can’t send a distress signal and our ship isn’t going anywhere.
Huyang said their ground base isn’t far.
The enemy has the map.
And the means to get where they want to go.
I fear we face a difficult choice.
If we can’t make the journey to find Ezra… then no one should.
It won’t come to that.
It might have already.
He’d be stranded out there.
Maybe this time for good.
Better that than allowing Thrawn’s return as heir to the Empire.
(THOUGHTFUL MUSIC PLAYING)
Let’s find that ground base.
Can I count on you?
You know you can.
Is everything all right?
Be careful out here.
(OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING)
Master, we’ve received word.
They’ve located the Jedi starship.
How far out are they?
About a dozen klicks.
Tell them to move in.
The guards will not delay them long.
But you will.
We best get underway soon.
Is that a note of fear in your voice?
(MYSTICAL MUSIC PLAYING)
Don’t worry about me.
Should I be?
I know how much Ezra means to you.
Sometimes we have to do what’s right regardless of our personal feelings.
You really believe that?
When the stakes are this high…
I have to.
And one more…
There. Finally some progress.
Help! (MUFFLED) Help! Help! Help!
(SIGHS) That daft droid made it worse.
Well, that will set me back a bit.
Prioritize the transmitter above everything else.
I need you to contact General Syndulla as soon as you can.
May I make one request of you both?
You always did better that way, in my opinion.
We better get moving.
Oh, very good.
You’ll thank me.
(MAJESTIC MUSIC PLAYING)
Watch him. I’m not just gonna sit around and do nothing, Lieutenant.
But… But you can’t leave without authorization.
There’s a meeting of the general staff. What do I tell them?
You’ll think of something.
(WHISPERS) Think of something.
Think of something. Think of something.
Mom, how come I have to do what I’m told and you don’t?
Well, when you’re a General, you can disobey orders too.
Until then, buckle up.
Thanks for joining the party, Carson.
CARSON: Wouldn’t miss it, General.
You know, you’re risking an awful lot by doing this.
Well, you know how it is.
Once a rebel, always a rebel.
On your signal, Phoenix Leader.
We’re all in on three, two, one, mark.
MORGAN: Once the guideline is established, we will be able to calculate the hyperspace coordinates.
For the jump we’re attempting, if your calculations are off by even a little, we will be lost to the depths of the void.
Faith? I lost that a long time ago.
Calculating hyperspace coordinates.
(PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING)
(TENSE MUSIC PLAYING)
(SMASHING AND SPARKING)
Get the map!
I’ve got this.
You will regret this decision.
I will prepare for our departure.
Protect the map until I send for you.
Anakin spoke highly of you.
He never mentioned you.
Everyone in the Order knew Anakin Skywalker.
(CLOAK SOFTLY THUDDING)
Few would live to see what he became.
Surely that must leave a mark.
Is that why you walked away? Abandoned him?
I’m not here to discuss my past.
(CLOAK LANDS SOFTLY)
The only reason I’m here is to secure the future.
Something far greater.
And you find starting another war necessary?
I’m not starting a war.
But Thrawn will.
It is an unfortunate evil, but speaks to a greater truth.
One must destroy in order to create.
(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)
(ANXIOUS MUSIC PLAYING)
DROID: The Jedi has engaged Lord Baylan at the henge.
How long until we receive the final coordinates?
You have no power.
(EXPLOSIVE DART FIRING)
Your legacy, like your Master’s, is one of death and destruction.
(POWERS DOWN AND SIZZLES)
(SYSTEM POWERS DOWN)
Transmission of the coordinates has ceased at the source.
The final calculation is incomplete.
That was unwise.
Get the map!
It didn’t need to come to this.
But you know no other way.
Step away from her!
You should do as your Master says.
She would have done it.
But you’re not like her though, are you?
More than you know.
(TENSE MUSIC PLAYING)
I know you feel that Ezra Bridger is the only family you have left.
You don’t know what you’re talking about.
I know that’s what’s holding you back.
Your family died on Mandalore because your Master didn’t trust you.
You and I share a common goal.
To make this journey.
You, to be reunited with your long lost friend, and I, to serve a greater good.
Come with me. Willingly.
And I give you my word, no harm will come to you.
Sabine… you will be reunited with your friend.
It’s the only way.
Shin, release her.
I gave her my word.
And unlike her former Master… I shall keep mine.
Lord Baylan has remedied the situation.
Calculations are complete.
The hyperspace route has been established.
Send the shuttle to retrieve the good Lord Baylan.
HERA: Fulcrum, do you copy?
Fulcrum, come in, over.
Yes, yes, yes, affirmative. This is Fulcrum.
We are downed on the surface of Seatos. Repeat, we are down.
Can you send assistance, over?
HERA: Copy, Huyang, we’re already here.
(SHIPS EXITING HYPERSPACE)
What can you tell me?
HUYANG: The enemy has built a massive hyperspace ring.
Do not let it escape.
Where are Sabine and Ahsoka?
They are attempting to stop the enemy from the surface.
CARSON: General, scans are detecting a ship bearing five mark sixty.
I’ve got it. Let’s cut across the axis and block its path.
MORGAN: The calculations are complete. Return at once.
No one will be following us.
(OMINOUS MAJESTIC MUSIC PLAYING)
Tracking trajectory. We have a clear guideline.
Leaving atmosphere in five-point-five.
NAVIGATOR DROID: Pressurizing zones three, five, seven, and ten.
The main drive is now online.
Lock S-foils in attack position.
I don’t think they’re sticking around for a fight.
Tracking six incoming New Republic craft.
They are obstructing our path.
Engage the hyperdrive.
Carson, are you reading this?
That’s a tremendous surge in power.
It’s the hyperdrive. They’re gonna jump.
I… I’ve got a bad feeling.
Lady Wren, I have completed repairs on the engines.
Lady Wren? Sabine, are you there?
(MYSTERIOUS MUSIC PLAYING)
MYSTERIOUS VOICE: Hello, Snips.
MYSTERIOUS VOICE: I didn’t expect to see you so soon.
