In Ahsoka's penultimate episode, "Dreams and Madness," we were reunited with Hera Syndulla as the former Rebel was forced to answer for her decision to ignore the New Republic's orders by travelling to Seatos.
She did so in an effort to help Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren make the journey to Peridea, a mission she accomplished...only to return with no proof that Grand Admiral Thrawn's return is imminent.
Senator Xiono wasn't impressed and made his desire for Hera to be punished very clear. However, it was at this point a familiar droid arrived to save the day. Anthony Daniels' C-3PO informs Mon Mothma and her fellow Senators that Senator Leia Organa gave Hera the green light (which isn't exactly true).
Now, we have a new character poster for Ahsoka which puts the spotlight on everyone's favourite golden protocol droid. Funnily enough, his cameo was in an episode which also featured the return of his creator, Anakin Skywalker, in the form of a hologram.
After C-3PO saved the day, we learned that Leia is now the leader of the New Republic's Defence Council. Her intervention proves vital for the Ghost pilot. However, during a brief conversation with Mon, it's clear the Rebel Alliance's one-time leader is terrified of the Grand Admiral's possible return, further cementing him as a huge threat.
We'd have liked to see R2-D2 by Threepio's side, but common sense says he's currently with Luke Skywalker as the Jedi Knight attempts to rebuild the Order from the ground up.
Check out the latest character poster for Ahsoka below.
Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.
