How Does Ahsoka Tie Into The Mandalorian?

Ahsoka was originally expected to be a spin-off of The Mandalorian since Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) made her live-action debut in the show's second season and appeared again in The Book of Boba Fett. However, Ahsoka feels much more like a sequel to the animated series Star Wars Rebels than a follow-up to The Mandalorian. While the characters and plot are much more in line with Rebels, that doesn't mean the show doesn't tie into The Mandalorian. In fact, you may have forgotten that one of the show's villains, Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto), was originally introduced in "Chapter 13: The Jedi," the same episode that featured Ahsoka's first live-action appearance. 

In The Mandalorian, the people of Calodan were being oppressed by Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth, who had her people massacred during the Clone Wars. She built her own business in trading weapons and resources which ultimately helped build the Imperial Starfleet. In "Chapter 13: The Jedi," Morgan Elsbeth attempts to hire Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) to kill Ahsoka, but he ends up teaming up with the former Jedi instead. Morgan Elsbeth proves to be skilled in combat, but Ahsoka ultimately bests her. She then asks, "Now tell me. Where is your master?" While it was presumed at the time that Ahsoka was referring to Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), the first two episodes of Ahsoka confirmed Morgan Elsbeth's allegiance to the villain. 

What Is Ahsoka About?
