Added DiffLines:

* While Rex ultimately survives the series, he likely will just barely survive the conflict. Due to his faster aging, he will be in his late 70's to early 80s by the time the Rebel Alliance finally frees the galaxy from the Empire the first time around. Same goes for Wolffe. While the two likely have come to terms with this fact, it is sad that the two will not be able to partake in the brighter future they've fought and sacrificed so much for.

Added DiffLines:

** It gets better when you realize exactly what happened. When he takes the moment to survey his opponent and figure a strategy, Obi-Wan switches to none other than Qui-Gon's stance. Darth Maul promptly launches himself in and attempts to do the exact same CombatPragmatist slam of the his hilt to the face to stun Obi-Wan, [[spoiler: who sees it coming and slices clean through the hilt, and Maul by consequence, all in a mere three strikes.]] With his skilled and samurai-like precision, Obi-Wan exploited Darth Maul's anger and pragmatism by intentionally creating a CallBack to trick Maul into repeating the same actions, something Obi-Wan's probably been studying to ''prevent'' since the day Qui-Gon died due to witnessing it firsthand. Maul also never really evolved his combat style, while Obi-Wan had many years to reflect and develop, turning him into throwing the flashiness out for brutal yet elegant efficiency as a cold, hard counter for combatants like Maul.


* Ezra acts unusually kind towards Klik-Klak after he's caught, sympathizing with him and reassuring him even though Klik-Klak was trying to kill them a moment ago. But since he made a connection with Klik-Klak earlier to find him and can feel Klik-Klak's fear and protective instincts, he's far more forgiving than usual.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Trials of the Darksaber", Kanan mentions that Sabine's hotheaded nature keeps her closed off from the Force. The implication being that while not everyone can be a Jedi, anyone with the proper mindset can sense the Force. Back in the ''Clone Wars'' episode "Ambush". Yoda told his clone troopers that because they are all living beings they were connected to the Force. So in a sense, Kanan was making the same observation as Yoda.


* In "The Last Battle", Kalani that explaining that the Lasat we're not involved in the Clone War may have a reasonable explanation. During the war their was a group that wanted to stay neutral. The Council of Neutral Systems, a group of fifteen hundred systems led by Duchess Satine. Lasan could have been one of those systems.

* In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', Yoda tells Luke that he is the [[TheLastOfHisKind last of the Jedi.]] Originally, this didn't bother fans as Kanan and, by extension, Ezra were not officially Jedi. But, as of "Shroud of Darkness", Kanan is a full-fledged Jedi knight which leaves fans wondering about his fate.

* [[spoiler:Ahsoka's fate on Malachor since we last see her retreat back into the temple]], carries a lot of darker implications; If you think about it, a lot has happened throughout Ahsoka's life; from being framed for treason to being disillusioned by the Jedi, and Anakin was all she had through all the pain and suffering. Now, she sees her dear friend, fallen to the dark side, with barely any trace of his old self left. This very moment is one that likely brought her way past the DespairEventHorizon, so it's not hard to imagine that Ahsoka could have [[DrivenToSuicide committed suicide]] [[spoiler:after falling back into the temple]].

Added DiffLines:

*Kanan's [[spoiler: death by fire]] could be seen as the force giving him a traditional Jedi funeral.
*It's established in ''Clone Wars'' that Maul's anger is the only thing keeping him alive. Another reason he may have [[spoiler: died so quickly]] is that he finally let go of his hatred, and thus didn't have the dark side power left to sustain his ruined body.

Added DiffLines:

* Some moments involving Maul gain a new light after [[spoiler: his cameo in ''Film/{{Solo}}'']].
** When Ezra meets Maul, Maul says "once I had power, now I have nothing". While this may seem somewhat hyperbolic, given that he only seemed to rule Mandalore and manage the Shadow Collective for a few days, it makes a lot more sense after [[spoiler: ''Solo'' revealed him to be the leader of Crimson Dawn]], one of the most powerful crime organizations in the galaxy.
** Ezra finds a few Mandalorian artifacts in Maul's Dathomir base, including a vandalized portrait of Duchess Satine (which was previously seen hanging on the walls of her palace in ''The Clone Wars''). Given that Maul probably wouldn't be able to show his face around Mandalore after being driven off the planet, it raises questions as to how he got the portrait. But given that Maul had extensive criminal connections in the underworld [[spoiler: via being Crimson Dawn's leader]], it's possible that he used these connections to get the portrait and other artifacts.


* ''Literature/{{Thrawn}}'' expands the CrypticBackgroungReference of Thrawn's victory at Batonn where more civilians than rebels were killed, before he appeared on the show. Among other things it reveals two things: Batonn is geographically close to Lothal and many civilians joined the insurgents despite the leader, Nightswan, not wanting them to. Now considering, the Batonn insurgency happens shortly before season 3, one realizes that many of those civilians decided to join because of Ezra's broadcast.

* Dume mentions that Ezra must "restore past, redeem future" when instructing him about the temple. We later learn that [[spoiler:"restore past" meant rescuing Ahsoka Tano, but "redeem future" is unclear. At least until the finale when it's revealed that Ahsoka is searching out Ezra, and is probably the only Force-user left alive who could find him. In rescuing Ahsoka, Dume didn't just save her, he also made sure Ezra wouldn't be exiled forever, thus "redeeming" what would have been a DownerEnding for his padawan.]]

Added DiffLines:

* It's no surprise Thrawn came earlier than Ezra expected in the GrandFinale; While Ezra was in the World Between Worlds running away from the Emperor's Sith Sorcery, remember that Thrawn was ''also'' on Coruscant for a meeting the Emperor, so once Ezra escaped, Emperor Palpatine sent Thrawn back to Lothal to retrieve Ezra for him.


* [[spoiler:The Bendu's defeat in the season 3 finale actually has a lot of deep meaning behind it. Mostly, it reinforces what his early tantrum against Kanan showed: that he is both NotSoAboveItAll and also NotSoDifferent to the "petty" Jedi & Sith he talks down about. Just like the Jedi, he had allowed himself to grow lazy and arrogant, willfully ignoring the galaxy until the galaxy came back to bite him: he presumed that his powers in the Force would allow him to get his way, but because he had been isolated for so long, the denizens of the galaxy no longer recognize or fear him in the way they once did, resulting in them instead attacking him and forcibly reminding him that he's not a PhysicalGod. It also serves as a rather sharp-tongued ActorAllusion; after all, [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] was often reminded that he was neither infallible nor entirely as smart as he thought himself to be...]]
