I think we can all agree that Ahsoka is one of the best standalone shows Lucasfilm has put out since the Disney+ expansion in 2019 and while the Rosario Dawson-led series has managed to keep Star Wars fans quite engaged, some episodes can be hit or miss.

Unfortunately, that was the case with the MandoVerse spinoff's penultimate episode which according to many didn't feel like a precursor to the show's grand finale.

Episode 7, titled "Dreams and Madness" didn't really click with a lot of fans, with a lot of them even arguing that for a penultimate episode, it felt so much like a filler more than something that is supposed to get you all hyped up for the finale.

Even Hayden Christensen's hologram cameo or Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger's reunion didn't give fans a reason to be excited about it but thankfully, C-3PO's surprise return was well-received and is probably the main highlight of the episode.

Although the latter part of the episode didn't skimp out on the action, viewers still thought something was missing. It also doesn't help that a lot of technical flaws were more noticeable this time around, including the sloppy CGI and the overall color grading of the episode which was still a little too dark, at least for the scenes in Peridea.

To be fair, Episode 7 still established Thrawn's true motives and set up his impending return to the "main" Star Wars galaxy. Although the penultimate episode failed to meet expectations, next week's finale promises to be an explosive one that fans obviously shouldn't miss.


Ahsoka's seventh episode is now available to stream on Disney+.
