This was our first time seeing a live-action Ahsoka Tano, and Dawson did not disappoint.

We'll have more for you later on her role in the Disney+ TV series, but thought you might enjoy checking out some hi-res shots of the hero in action in the meantime!

If you haven't seen the latest episode of the Star Wars spinoff and wish to preserve your ignorance, read no further.

Ahsoka also reconfirms that, whatever Grogu's species is, it's as rare as we've been led to expect - she only knows of Yoda and Grogu.

Baby Yoda and Ahsoka communicate, and it's revealed that "the child's" real name is actually. And, unlike Boba Fett and Bo-Katan's nebulous age, Ahsoka Tano should be around 45 in the time of The Mandalorian, which lines up pretty well with Dawson, who is 41.

Furthermore, once 350 COVID-19 patients are in the ICU in the province, it becomes "impossible" to handle other medical needs. That's with 41 reported on Thanksgiving, though only new cases were released, with a full report expected on Monday.

In addition to revealing his name, Asoka fills in some important details about Grogu, saying that he was raised in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and was trained by many Jedi masters, and that he was taken into hiding when the Empire rose to power. With her on the scene, Mando and Baby Yoda got a ton of information about what in the kriff is going on.

"Someone took him from the temple", says Ahsoka, "then his memory becomes dark".

Since The Mandalorian is set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, Yoda has already passed away.

However, something that might excite fans the most, is that Ahsoka hinted that Luke Skywalker could return at some point in the future, as he looks to find baby Yoda, sorry, Grogu. (RIP Yaddle, I guess?) Who took Grogu from the Temple and hid him for all these years, and how did he end up on Arvala-7 and on Gideon's radar?
