    General Theories 
Ahsoka is a distant cousin of Shaak Ti
Meaning the "family" kind of "distant cousin", not just being the same species.

Ahsoka is closely related to Ashla.
Ashla could even be Ahsoka's little sister, their ages match up. The force runs in the family.

Cad Bane has, or had, a Morality Pet.
In "Children of the Force", Cad Bane had a minor Freak Out when he overheard Ahsoka telling the Gungan child's mother, "Your daughter is safe now," prompting him to snap, "You really believe that?" Cad Bane may have a Force-sensitive relative hidden away somewhere in hopes of hiding them from the deadly conflicts of the Clone Wars and Bounty Hunts to provide for them or alternately that same relative may have been killed in the Wars, which explains Bane's seemingly bitter vendetta against Jedi.
  • Let's hope not; the quality of a cold merc character tends to tank when you give them too much artificial sympathy, so let's just say he wants money for its own sake and leave it at that.
    • That doesn't mean you can't use it as a reason for his callous nature. As long as it's done in a way to not give sympathy, and just explain.
      • Perhaps he has/had a relative who was taken for Jedi training.

Grievous' backstory changed? Nah, he's just an Unreliable Narrator.
  • The Geonosians and the Sith are responsible for his creation, who's to say they didn't go so far as making him think his alterations were of his own choosing?
  • Or, maybe he's just ashamed of being Dooku's pawn and doesn't want to admit that the alterations were Dooku's idea. He's managed to convince himself that he chose the modifications, and he has expended a lot of money to make a shrine to his "transformation" to keep up the act. Wishful thinking, but Grievous doesn't think of it that way.

The dreams Anakin has in Revenge of the Sith are remnants of the Son-induced flashforwards
The Father may have mostly erased Anakin's experiences with what the Son showed him, but they still remain in his subconsious, though it took a significant amount of time for these remnants to surface and only then, it's only one particular fragment.

Dengar still becomes a cyborg later in life.
His appearance in "Bounty" merely takes place a while before the disastrous swoop race on Corellia that horribly mutilated his head and forced him to become a cyborg. After that, he specifically patterned the bandages he used to conceal his head-circuitry after the mundane headwrap he wore in his younger days, so as to make it look less conspicuous. Taking this to be the truth, it helps make his appearance in The Clone Wars avoid being a continuity error. Consequently, though, it also means that he's considerably older than Han Solo. Either that, or Han was into swoop racing at the tender age of 8...

Satine and Obi-Wan had an illegitimate son.

Barriss Offee had strong feelings for Ahsoka
We already know that in the Old Republic, Jedi Knights were supposed to avoid personal attachments. This is of course easier said than done.Presumably, this also includes sexual attachments, yet I'd find it hard to imagine that the Jedi, as imperfect organic beings, are able to fully repress biological or sexual instincts. Sexual repression can be a very dangerous situation, and with its enforcement in the Jedi Temple, it is technically hard to know the actual sexual orientation of most of its members. Now let us suppose for a moment that Barriss was in fact lesbian or bisexual. It is worth noting that her closest relationships in the installment were often with other women (in the case of both Luminara and Ahsoka). Prior to the events of season five, it was also established that Barriss and Ahsoka were very close friends. But Ahsoka was committed to her Jedi studies and also knew the rules about personal attachments.

This leads me to an interesting theory: supposing Barriss saw their relationship as something deeper? As in, Barriss started to develop affection towards Ahsoka, and perhaps started to see Ahsoka as something more than just a friend. In short, I'm suggesting that at some point during the events of the Clone Wars, Barriss developed a crush on Ahsoka.

Meanwhile, Ahsoka has never shown any real interest in pursuing romantic relationships. Though she does develop some close friendships in The Clone Wars, she never seems interested in pursuing a sexual encounter. If indeed Barriss had started to develop affection towards Ahsoka, than could she not have perceived the latter's commitment to Jedi values as a form of rejection? To make a long story short, Barriss saw Ahsoka as a lover, and felt betrayed because the latter did not reciprocate those feelings.

This also drives Barriss during the events of Season Five. Although Barriss meant what she said regarding her views of the order and her motives behind the actual bombing, she was also motivated by sexual frustration. After believing she was rejected by Ahsoka, and being unable to express her true feelings, she started to resent her former friend, and eventually this turned to anger. That anger started small, but as Barriss started to distrust the order she began to project some of her own frustrations with Ahsoka on top of it. To make a long story short, Barriss felt betrayed by what she saw as a rejection and having projected her anger onto the Jedi began to feel the need to hurt Ahsoka.

  • I came here looking for this specific WMG during a chronological order rewatch of the series, as I came to a similar conclusion, and actually had shipped Barris and Ahsoka for many years. After watching the series in order, I would like to point out that Ahsoka DOES have a designated love interest, that she does show affection towards, in Lux Bonteri. She’s clearly saddened after he leaves her at the end of “A Friend In Need” (during which he gave her the cover of being betrothed to him when introducing her to his contacts in Death Watch), and later she’s shown being jealous of Steela Gerrera, who also has a bit of a crush on Lux. As far as Barris and Ahsoka goes, my personal theory is that Barris developed a crush on Ahsoka, which Ahsoka may or may not have reciprocated, but the war kept the two apart for an extended period of time, with Ahsoka eventually meeting and becoming infatuated with Lux. Somewhere along the way, Barris found out about Lux and saw this as Ahsoka “cheating” on her, contributing to her fall to the dark side. Also, I’m not sure when this was posted, I could be beating a dead horse here, but Ahsoka is Ambiguously Bi thanks to the Ahsoka novel having a female character blatantly crushing on her, with Ahsoka seeming to reciprocate (confirmed thanks to a now deleted twitter post from the author). When The Clone Wars was revived for a seventh season, a previously unfinished arc surrounding Ahsoka was included, which originally would have had Ahsoka become romantically involved with a human male named Nyx Okami. The finished episodes replaced Nyx with twin sisters named Trace and Rafa Martez, with Trace also becoming close to Ahsoka, but similar to Barris, with no definitive confirmation of a romantic attraction.

When Sifo-Dyas was killed
This is a proposed timeline of the events of Sifo-Dyas' death and the ordering of the clone army. (All of this takes place less than a year before the Trade Federation invasion of Naboo.)
  • Sifo-Dyas, having heard of the Kaminoans and their expertise in cloning, goes to Kamino and makes arrangements regarding the creation of an army, supposedly on the orders of the Galactic Senate. He then returns to the Republic, and tells his "friend" Dooku (who, while he has fallen to the Dark Side and joined the Sith, has yet to formally leave the Jedi Order over supposed philosophical differences) about what he did on his trip. Dyas believes that he can still trust Dooku. Before he returns to Kamino, he must locate a suitable gene donor for the clone army. It is possible that Dooku offers to help, out of the kindness of his heart, you understand.
  • Chancellor Valorum contacts Sifo-Dyas and asks him to secretly negotiate with the Pyke Syndicate to prevent a war between the various underworld factions. The Jedi Master departs for Oba Diah with Valorum's aide Silman. At the same time, Darth Sidious' spy or spies in the Chancellor's office report to the Sith Lord that he has sent a Jedi Master on a secret mission. Sidious informs Darth Tyranus, aka Dooku, of the situation, with the expected instructions.
  • Shortly after Sifo-Dyas arrives at Oba Diah, before negotiations can begin, he receives instructions from the Jedi Council to deal with a tribal dispute on Felucia. When he leaves to deal with the situation, his shuttle is shot down by the Pykes, killing him, because a man they know only as Tyranus hired them to do so. The Pykes, on inspecting the crash site on Oba Diah's moon, locate both Sifo-Dyas' body and a still living Silman. They give Tyranus the Jedi Master's body as proof, but stash Silman away in their dungeon as potential leverage.
  • Dooku/Tyranus goes to Felucia and uses his Dark Side powers to make the tribal leaders believe that Sifo-Dyas arrived on the planet alive, but was killed in an incident. Dooku, posing as another Jedi (at this point, technically speaking, he still is one), arranges for Sifo-Dyas to be cremated to conceal the true cause of death. At the time, the Jedi find nothing suspicious about the incident. It is probably shortly after this that Dooku publicly leaves the Order under a claim of "philosophical differences".
  • Dooku, under his Sith name Tyranus, contacts the Kaminoans claiming to be Sifo-Dyas' representative. He also selects bounty hunter Jango Fett to be the gene donor for the clone army. At this point, the Trade Federation, acting under orders from Darth Sidious, is preparing to blockade the planet of Naboo.

The Clone Wars character who may appear in the Lords of the Sith novel.
It has been announced that Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp will feature a character from this show. Here are some possible theories:
  • Darth Maul will return to prove whether or not he may still be part of the Sith order, or he may try to overthrow Sidious and Vader altogether.
  • Asajj Ventress will return to either serve the Sith or duel them.
  • Ahsoka Tano will return and duel with Darth Vader, possibly discovering that he is her former master. Vader would feel a bit conflicted and be reminded that he failed training her to be a Jedi.
  • All have been JOSSED. It's Cham Syndulla. This may also tie in with Star Wars Rebels seeing as he's Hera's father.

In the throne room, the woman that sides with Maul is Rook Kast and one of the men that also sides with Maul is Gar Saxon.

Why Rex didn't tell Cody about the control chips
We know that, as revealed on Rebels, Fives' death prompted Rex to investigate and find out about the clones' control chips. Thanks to Doomed by Canon and Foregone Conclusion, we know that he wouldn't have been able to warn Cody about them. Thing is, though, that Rex and Cody were good friends, and no In-Universe explanation for why he didn't tell Cody about the chips has yet been stated. It seems that the most likely explanation has to do with the fact that, thanks to what happened to Fives, Rex would know that he had to be very careful, when investigating, about who he let in on this secret. Therefore, because of this entirely justified paranoia, Rex never found a good opportunity to tell Cody about the chips between when he found out about them and the last time he saw Cody, probably early on during the Siege of Mandalore.
  • The reason Rex didn't tell Cody about the chips as we learn in Season 7, is because Rex didn't know about them prior to Order 66. He receives the order after the Siege, and Ahsoka has to knock him out and remove the chip while the clones are actively hunting her.

Ahsoka is a Soul Jar
When the Son somehow turned Ahsoka to the Dark Side, later we heard her voice taking on the reverbaration of the Son's. Given this, it's safe to assume, that the Son used Demonic Possession, and transfered some of his energy to her. Later the Daughter resurrected and cured Ahsoka by transfering her own energy to her. Is it possible, that a small part of both the Son and the Daughter lives on, sealed inside Ahsoka?
  • This is also awesome.

The narrator that recaps the episodes is M1-4X
When the droid's combat functions were rendered obsolete, someone in the Republic (due to sentiment, Rule of Funny or both) had the idea of uploading the droid's memory and personality to the Republic propaganda office so M1-4X could continue to serve the Republic in his own unique, Large Ham way by narrating patriotic films depicting the Republic military and Jedi in a heroic fashion.

The Droids acted goofy because there ai was repurposed from non-combat droids
]]The CIS have a philosophy of quantity over quality, and the droids are known to be made as cheaply as possible, so of course they would recycle both parts and old code to save even more money, there more then willing to sacrifice effectiveness if it means they can field more quicker, so i doubt they would care much if there droids had somewhat quirky personalities from old code they dident bother to alter

    Season 3 
The cylinder Asajj Ventress tried to steal from Kamino would have been used to create clone troopers loyal to the Separatists.
The clone troopers loyal to the Separatists would essentially make the perfect spies.

Had Anakin remained on Mortis to replace the Father, the Skywalker twins would have come to replace the Son and the Daughter.
Which sibling would embody which side of the Force is an interesting point of discussion. The Force would have contrived a way to get Padme to Mortis for this purpose.
  • Yeah, and what happens to Padme? Does she end up as the new Abeloth?
    • She probably would've just died of old age, as Abeloth would have if not for doing the things that turned her into an abomination.
    • Let's not forget how Anakin is psychologically. If Padme was to age while he did not, he'd probably unintentionally turn her into Abeloth 2.0 trying to save her life. As Revenge of the Sith shows, he is prone to doing extremely stupid and universe damming things for good reasons (Trying to save Padme).
During the Mortis arc, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka all had different events happen to them
Mortis is a weak point in reality where entering it causes you to be able to get very close to the Force. When Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka entered it, they met up with the representations of the Light Side, Dark Side, and Neutral side of the Force, then their adventures began to differ. We saw what happened to Anakin, but here is my theory, Anakin only saw what he thought would happen, Mortis creates events based off of the person's mind. Anakin was already slipping toward the Dark Side, so he thought that the prophecy was very literal and that balance could only be brought about through death. That is why the Son, supposedly the Dark Side of the Force was so remorseful when his sister died, Anakin saw himself in the Son and made him more sympathetic by giving him an attachment to someone. What Happened to Obi-Wan and Ahsoka was different. Obi-Wan most likely saw the balance of the Force brought about through the death of the Son and the triumph of the Daughter. His Son would most likely have not been very sympathetic, and the Father would probably act like Qui-Gon Jinn, due to Qui-Gon being a Gray Jedi. Ahsoka, being in between Obi-Wan and Anakin would most likely have the balance be brought about by having the Son, Daughter and Father make peace with each other. The Son, Daughter and Father would most likely all have had good points and bad points, to make them more relatable to her, and would most likely not have a problem with her, so much as a problem with each other.
  • That. Is. Awesome.

The Father, Daughter, and Son were a subtle Take That! to the concept of the Balance Between Good and Evil and the fans who interpret "balance of the Force" that way.
While a lot of fans have interpreted the Dark Side as being an example of Dark Is Not Evil being abused, and that the Sith aren't inherently evil, George Lucas has been pretty adamant against this. After all, good versus evil is a major aspect of Star Wars along with redemption. Word of God has stated that its the dark side that's the imbalance, and by extension the light side could be considered balance. Lucas wanted to show how, by the standards of the Star Wars universe, balancing the dark and light sides don't work, with the Father, Son and Daughter. The family crisis was his attempt to once and for all disprove the "Jedi and Sith need to be in balance."
  • The family-crisis actually fits Lucas's claims, about "the Dark Side being the imbalance itself" pretty well. After all it was the Son who started the entire conflict, he was the one who tried to upset the existing power-balance. To me the message here seems to be more like this: naturally the Light and the Dark Side are balancing-out eachother, however the Dark Side always seeks to overthrow this balance. But to do this, it needs outside help, to tip the scales. Tus it will always seek to enslave those who have the potential to be of use in doing so. If you look at the Son's attempts to turn Anakin, (first by the promise of acting for the Greater Good, then by taking away a loved one, and finally by throwing him into despair), these are returning themes amongst the various Start of Darkness stories in Star Wars.
  • Er, no. It was strongly hinted at that the Daughter getting loose would be just as bad as the son.
    • Except she never tried to get loose. She might had the potential to cause disasters, but she was well aware of that, and accepted that they must remain imprisoned on Mortis. The Son on the other hand, didn't seem to care about the consicvencies of him being unleashed.
      • The formerly canon Dawn of the Jedi comics show the precursors of both the Sith and Jedi, the Je'daii, balanced light and dark, and considered straying too far towards the Light just as bad as falling into the Dark. They exiled them to different moons of Tython, Bogar for dark, and Ashla for light. So, yeah. She probably would have caused doom, too.

Anakin's nightmare of Padme's death was caused by the Son
During the vision, we saw Anakin foresee Padme's death. Maybe after the Father erased Anakin's memory, a brief glimpse remained, making Anakin think Padme would die in childbirth. This would fit in with the episode's them that fighting fate will just make it happen.

    Season 4 
The clone troopers are going to kill Krell by the end of the Umbara arc.
Come on, Rex isn't going to take Krell's attitude forever. He pulled a lightsaber on Fives for crying out loud. I could actually see a Clone Trooper axing him and everyone just instantly agrees not to talk about it in the future. It also sets up Order 66 nicely, considering this IS the 501st. Alternatively, Anakin shows up to find Krell doing something similar to what he did to Fives and flips out, engaging Krell in a lightsaber duel that either ends with Anakin killing Krell or a Clone Trooper stepping in to save Anakin via blasting Krell, and again everyone just tacitly agrees not to talk about it. Seriously, Krell acts like Traviss' stereotype of a Jedi commander. Only so long before he crosses the Moral Event Horizon.
  • As of "Carnage of Krell", This has been confirmed, done in by a blaster bolt from Dogma.

Palpatine sent Krell to Umbara to get him killed.
Krell had a vision of the events that would happen in Revenge of the Sith, and thus if the Jedi found out what he had seen, they might decide to take chances and start working out on how to bring down Darth Sidious. Sidious learnt about Krell's knowledge, and decided to send him to command the 501st on Umbara. As it is a very dangerous battleground, he figured that the clones would be more likely to question Krell (of course, we don't know what other battles he has participated in, and how dangerous those worlds were - maybe Palpatine has been trying this on many hostile worlds for a while), and thus turn on him. If they succeeded in capturing him (which they do), he figured that such a great threat to the clones would lead them to decide to kill him, thus benefiting the clones and Sidious. Krell's views on the clones only would've helped his plan.
  • That was actually somewhat confirmed Word of Filoni in a Forcecast interview. According to him, Palpatine did notice that Krell was drifting towards the Dark Side, and sent him to Umbara to see if he was strong enough to replace Dooku or even Anakin in his plans. If Krell got killed by the clones, Palpatine'd have had a problematic Jedi out of his way, if Krell defeated the clones, he'd have gained a new apprentice.

Palpatine recalling Anakin from Umbara and replacing him with Krell is part of his ongoing strategy to push Anakin towards the Dark Side.
Palpatine is already no doubt aware of Anakin's attachment issues, he's no doubt aware of Krell's record for highest clone mortality rate, and he deliberately pulls Anakin away from an important battle that's already likely to have high casualties and replaced him with what has to be the worst Jedi General the Republic has. There's no way that Palpatine isn't trying to get Anakin's favorite clone commander killed along with countless other clones that Anakin has no doubt grown attached to and give his future apprentice something else to angst about 'not being strong enough' over.
  • OR he'll send Anakin back to Umbara at the last moment, so Skywalker could see the Jedi Master's deeds and confront him about it, leading Anakin to another confrontation with the Jedi Order, seeding him with doubt of the Council's wisdom.
  • OR it was part of Palpatine's plot to tie the 501st even closer to Anakin, so that they'd be solidly at his back when Order 66 arrived.
  • Jossed

    Season 5 
Gregor's alive.
I mean, c'mon, Dave Filoni himself outright states that he thought Gregor was too cool to kill off, and that he added the ambiguity of his final scene specifically to have an "out" in the case that he could be brought back. He probably jumped into cover just as the spaceport went up in flames, then hijacked a CIS transport to take back to Coruscant.
  • Makes sense, given that clone commando armor is tough stuff. If Fi from the books can sit on a grenade then Gregor can live through a little explosion like that.
  • Plus, no body = no death.
  • Confirmed as of Rebels.

The hooded assailant is Barriss.
Everything just points to Barriss. She was the only one who knew about the warehouse and that Ahsoka was there. The assassin shares a very similar model and appears to have green hands.

The hooded assailant is Aurra Sing.
She was a former Jedi, after all. The curb stomping that the assailant delivered to Ahsoka may very well have been Aurra finally going all out and unleashing her Force abilities.
  • Jossed.

Sidious is behind the attack on the Temple.
And thus, the blame being put on Ahsoka. He may have been able to turn the former Jedi to his side (be it Barriss or someone else), asked them to cause the explosion, then asked them to frame Ahsoka. His motives? At the moment, Ahsoka is Anakin's Morality Chain, and is keeping him from turning to the dark side. With Ahsoka falsely accused and out of the way, Anakin will blame the council for what happened and be lured in by the Chancellor. Alternatively, Palpatine could betray the rogue Jedi and give Anakin vital information which captures him or her; this way, Anakin will have more trust in the Chancellor and still lose faith in the council for not acting. Ahsoka will still be around, of course, but Sidious can dispose of her another way.
  • Probably jossed. Unless Barriss is covering for him, she acted alone.
  • Jossed by Word of God. Filoni said in an interview, that while Palpatine might had been aware of what was going on behind the bombing, it's not likely he got himself involved in it.

Huyang the droid has a Jedi holocron built inside his system.
Isn't it strange that the Jedi keep a droid for the important task of teaching the younglings how to build their first lightsabers? Not if said droid contains the holocron of an ancient Lightsaber-architect Jedi Master called Huyang, who built the droid for the exact purpose of finding a way to continue passing down his knowledge to the new generations long after he himself died!
  • If this is true, it could only possibly be better if there's a flashback in which we see that the original Huyang was a human male Jedi who looked exactly like David Tennant and wielded a lightsaber shaped like 10's sonic screwdriver.
  • That would explain a lot. We've seen that most Jedi are quite dismissive of droids (even Obi-Wan thinks it absurd that Anakin considers R2-D2 a friend, despite friendship clearly being allowed under the Jedi Code), so it would have to be a very special droid indeed that the Order entrusts with a crucial element of training new generations of Jedi.

The hooded assailant manipulated Ventress as well as Ahsoka.
The assailant hired Ventress to find Ahsoka and lead her to the warehouse. After Ventress completed her task, the assailant knocked her out and took her helmet and lightsabers in order to convince Ahsoka that Ventress went back on their deal. All the assailant had to do from there was make sure that Ahsoka fell right where the box of nanodroids was located.

    Season 6 
Moraband is the Burial site for all the Rule of Two Sith
With the revalation that the evil Sith Spirit faced by Yoda in the finale(other than Sidious) is none other than Darth Bane. It is very likely that Moraband is not the homeworld of the Sith per say, but rather, the Burial site for all the Rule of Two Sith such as Darth Cognus and Darth Zannah. I can see why Bane would want to be buried in some random planet with lots of Dark Side energy and not Korriban—-to separate the Rule of Two away from the rest, which Bane accuses of "diluting the Poison and making it less potent".
  • Partially JOSSED. Filoni specifically stated in an interview, that all Sith-illusions, with the exception of Sidious, were created by Priestesses. He also added, that according to Lucas, Sith can't Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence on any way, because they seek physical immortality. It's been also stated that Moraband is Korriban. It's only the name it was known by the time of the Clone Wars. This was introduced, because Lucas found that the name "Korriban" didn't sound like what he'd write. However this doesn't mean that the Rule of Two Sith were not buried there.

The planet Yoda is going to in the Heart of the Galaxy in "Destiny" is Tython
It makes sense.
  • Jossed, it's called the Wellspring of Light.

Moraband is the Sith homeworld only on the spiritual plane of existence.
The Yoda arc's writer, Christian Taylor, has said this arc will be similar to the Mortis arc. It will be only a spiritual journey and like Mortis, Moraband is physically cut off from the rest of the universe (probably explaining why we see Yoda fighting Darth Sidious) while Korriban (or whatever planet they decided to call home) remains the ancient Sith homeworld in the physical realm.
  • Jossed

    Season 7 
Season 7 will address Rex getting his chip removed.
In Rebels, it's revealed that Rex, Wolffe, and Gregor got their control chips removed before Order 66. We know that Fives' death was what led Rex to discover the chips, but we don't know any of the circumstances. While it appears that the season is focusing primarily on the Siege of Mandalore, it would make sense to acknowledge the chip removal in some way before Order 66 appears in the story.
  • Word of God seems to point to yes.
  • Rex didn't have his chip removed until after Order 66 was activated.

Kix's fate.
In addition, it might address what happened to Kix. For those who haven't read the short story "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku", it reveals that he also found out about the chips and, as a result, was captured on Coruscant before being frozen and placed on a Separatist ship to transport him to Count Dooku for personal interrogation, but things didn't go as planned. It would be very interesting to see what exactly happened there.
  • Alternatively, Kix will be mysteriously missing from the episodes.
    • Kix being removed from episodes is jossed, as he remains in the final version of "The Bad Batch" and the Ahsoka's Journey arc takes place before then. But we should probably not expect to see him in the Siege of Mandalore arc...
      • Confirmed regarding the Siege of Mandalore arc; Kix does not appear.

The very last scene of the series will be...
  • ...Ahsoka leaving her lightsabers on Rex's fake grave, a scene first shown in the novel Ahsoka.
  • ...Ahsoka watching the sun set on Mandalore before she takes a ship offworld.
  • ...a montage showing the aftermath of the Clone Wars while a recording of Obi-Wan's warning call is played, as a Bookends to the first episode of Rebels.
    • The first guess is actually the second-to-last scene of the series. The very last is a Time Skip to when Vader finds the grave site and Ahsoka's discarded lightsaber an unspecified amount of time later.

Ursa Wren and/or Fenn Rau/Protectors will be soft-retconned into scenes in the Siege of Mandalore.
For example, a Nite Owl woman with Sharmila Devar's voice could mention that some of Mandalore's warriors have families of their own, and/or we could see a fleet of Protectors fighting at Mandalore and getting namedropped by Bo-Katan and/or Bo-Katan speaking to a Protector voiced by Kevin McKidd…
  • Confirmed that Ursa appears; she's scoping out Oba Diah with Bo-Katan in "Dangerous Debt".

The Grand Finale will have a Bittersweet Ending at best.
The final season had begun to line up more and more with Revenge of the Sith, and given what we already know will happen, a totally happy ending is impossible. Given what will also eventually happen, however, the final shot of the final episode may indicate that hope may eventually return one day.

Season 7 will have the on-screen debut of the Victory-class Star Destroyer show the debut of the Imperator (later Imperial I) and Tector-class Star Destroyers
The Victory-class debuted twenty-three months in the Clone Wars and the other two models were first deployed right at the end of the Clone Wars, and the Siege of Mandalore is just the kind of campaign where those ships would be deployed: the Victory is a dedicated planetary siege ship, capable of devastating ground fortifications without ruining the planet thanks to eighty concussion missile launchers, the Tector is the toughest and mightiest ship in the Republic's fleet (effectively an upgunned and uparmored Imperator) to take on anything the Separatists may have loaned to the Mandalorians, and the Imperator, being a general purpose vessel that stands halfway the Venator and the Tector (being tougher and better armed than the former and having the fighter complement the latter lacks), would be there as either escort ships for the new specialist vessels or as flagship for the specialist group attached to Anakin and Obi-Wan's force (or both).
  • Alternatively, a group of early production Imperator and Tector Star Destroyers will appear in the Battle of Coruscant.
  • Jossed.

Season 7 will show the kidnapping of Chancellor Palpatine.
This is one of the few major events that hasn't been shown yet, and it would directly lead into Revenge of the Sith. Maybe we could see Palpatine show he is Sidious to someone, which has been danced around a lot but not actually shown in the series yet.
  • Jossed. While "Old Friends Not Forgotten" features Anakin and Obi-Wan going to Coruscant, the kidnapping itself is not shown.

Depa Billaba and Caleb Dume will cameo.
Dave Filoni has confirmed that there will be Call Forwards to Rebels, and likely other media produced between TCW's initial cancellation and now. And one of the potential arcs mentioned on the What Could Have Been page had Depa appearing, so it's almost a no-brainer.
  • Depa was going to appear because she was originally going to die in the Crystal Crisis arc, which they changed. Although they could reuse the animation model they made for her.
  • Confirmed: The two of them appear holographically during a war council meeting in "Old Friends Not Forgotten".

There'll be a Mace Windu episode in Season 7.
  • Looking highly unlikely; "Unfinished Business" is probably the closest we're coming to that.

Rook Kast will be voiced by another Rome alumni.
Maybe Indira Varma?

Alternatively, Rook Kast is played by Jennifer Hale.
Tiber Saxon will also show up as a cameo or get mentioned.

We'll get another montage of Order 66, showing more Jedi getting killed.
  • Jossed

We'll see the Sentinel turning against the other Jedi Temple Guards at the beginning of Order 66, or it at least gets hinted.
Word of God says that's what happened.
  • But it's not shown happening in this series.

The voice of Palpatine.
With Ian Abercrombie dead and Tim Curry indisposed by a stroke, who will voice Palpatine in Season 7? Way I see it, they have three options:
  • Use Sam Witwer as usual
  • Bring Ian McDiarmid in (they did it for Rebels)
    • Confirmed: They used archive footage for Order 66.
  • Bring back Nick Jameson

Operation: Knightfall will be featured in full.
And it'll be the single-most visceral scene in the entire series.
  • Jossed

The Sabaoth Squadron will appear in the 7th season.
The Sabaoth Squadron (from the Legends video game Jedi Starfighter) will be part of the Separatists with their star ships, weapons, ect. Cavik Toth, Bella, and Trask will serve as the secondary antagonists. But they will be killed off.

The Bad Batch arc will have been revised somewhat from the original story reels.
It's confirmed that this arc will appear in a completed form this season. It is highly likely that Filoni and co. would take the opportunity to change some details of the story, possibly out of dissatisfaction at some elements, and also to add in call-forwards to Rebels and the like.
  • Confirmed by the first two episodes, both of which feature revisions and changed scenes from the unfinished versions.

Maul finds out about Order 66 by mind-probing captured or cornered clones.
His opening narration in the trailer heavily implies that he is aware not just of Palpatine's intent to destroy the Jedi Order, but Order 66 specifically. Later in the trailer, there's a scene of Maul using the Force to apparently mind-probe Jesse. In Season 6's Order 66 arc, it is implied that the clones' implanted biochips not only contain information about the order, but also give them nightmares about eventually committing it that they can never remember. Put all these things together, and the answer is obvious.
  • Jossed. Maul doesn't know about Order 66 until after it goes live, when Ahsoka states how the clones have turned on her suddenly aren't "aren't themselves", and then Maul puts two and two together.

The Siege of Mandalore will be formatted similar to TV specials instead of an episodic story arc
With only twelve episodes, it seems bit unlikely that the season can cover the Siege of Mandalore traditionally (especially with both the Bad Batch and the Utapau arc being four episodes respectively, as well as a couple of episodes needed to cover Ahsoka's time in the Coruscant underworld + The Bad Batch's deployment to Kashyyyk). So similar to Voltron: Legendary Defender's pilot movie, the Siege of Mandalore will be a 90-minute/2 hour special; serving as both telling the story arc and as the Grand Finale to the series and the timeline up to Revenge of the Sith.
  • The Crystal Crisis on Utapau and Bad Batch on Kashyyyk arcs aren't actually in this season. It's just Bad Batch, Ahsoka in the Underworld and the Siege of Mandalore. Although I would not complain if some of the episodes were longer.
  • The last four episodes are, however, formatted as one TV special split into four parts.

The Bad Batch on Kashyyyk will be an adaptation of Star Wars: Republic Commando's final level
Filoni clearly knows and loves the old EU, and in relation to this WMG; Delta Squad appeared (albeit as a cameo), and Gregor's HUD and vocal filter are identical to said game.
So similarly, the Bad Batch on Kashyyyk will be similar; complete with losing a teammate, and it turning out they were sent to set the stage for the battle of Kashyyyk in Revenge of the Sith (just like the original game).
  • Jossed as that arc isn't being made for this season.

Order 66 happens during the scenes Ahsoka, Rex, and Maul are on the Republic cruiser.
  • Confirmed

If the series wasn't originally canceled, Ahsoka was supposed to have her white lightsabers while Maul kept his Darksaber to fight her with.
Then the Ahsoka book wouldn't have changed her white lightsabers' origin.

Jesse will die.
  • The most twisted way for him to die? Rex and/or Ahsoka killing him in self-defence during Order 66.
  • Confirmed, although it's not Rex or Ahsoka who kill him (they are actively trying to avoid lethal force on the clones, knowing they're only Brainwashed and Crazy) but the crashing of the cruiser.

We will see the Night of a Thousand Tears.

The way Order 66 goes down on Mandalore, the clone troopers of the 501st won't realize that Rex isn't trying to kill Ahsoka.
If things get as chaotic as they've been hinted at and have the potential to be, it's entirely likely that the mind-controlled clones may not realize that Rex hasn't turned on Ahsoka. Particularly if circumstances make it look like Ahsoka takes him hostage at some point...
  • Or, most of the clones don't find out, and any who do end up dying, presumably killed in self-defence.
  • Not exactly. Order 66 going down on the trip back from Mandalore aside, Rex pretends to hold Ahsoka hostage and then tries to Loophole Abuse her out of an execution. But Jesse sees through the ruse and charges Rex with treason in front of the other clones for going against the order. However, all the clones aside from Rex end up dying when the cruiser crashes anyway.

Kix has been removed from the Bad Batch arc.
He's in the original unfinished version. However, in the first released official clip, we see Jesse talking to a 501st medic who clearly is not Kix, with a different hairstyle and armour markings. You have to wonder if maybe that role was taken by Kix in the original version, but, to match the story with his fate in "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku", the decision was made to replace him with a different character...
  • Jossed; he just has a different hairstyle that makes him hard to recognize.

Kix grew his hair out in memory of Fives
In the final version of "The Bad Batch", Kix has grown his hair out into the "standard" clone trooper hairstyle, which he did not have in previous episodes. Fives used to have that hairstyle before getting his head shaved to have his control chip removed. As shown in "The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku", Kix harboured suspicions about the circumstances of Fives and Tup's deaths, and played a role in events as Fives talked to him at 79's. It's possible his new hairstyle could be a subtle nod to that story...
  • Further evidence is that the concept art for him in an Adventures comic that has yet to be also has him with a similar beard to Fives.

We'll get more The Clone Wars episodes at some point a la The Lost Missions OR The Clone Wars Legacy banner will start up again.
  • Unlikely, season 7 ends with Order 66 going live, effectively the end of the Clone Wars, making 'Clone Wars' and Artifact Title, if there is further episodes set between the Prequels and the Original Trilogy it'd likely either be under the banner of Rebels or a whole seperate title.

We will get references to Star Wars Resistance.
Like maybe an Admiral Doza, a Representative Xiono of the Hosnian system, green Niktos, one of the races from the series, etc.
  • Captain Doza and Senator Xiono would be toddlers at best during this time, so that's unlikely.
    • As the OP, I was suggesting that this could have been their parents.

The Grand Finale will have another Order 66 montage
It will show the deaths of Jedi that we haven't seen killed before. It may also show one or two escapes from Jedi that are confirmed or suspected to have survived the initial purge in other canon material, like Luminara Unduli, Oppo Rancisis and Quinlan Vos.
  • Jossed

Even if only by five to ten minutes, that would be great.
  • Jossed: The last episode is about 23 minutes long.

The Ahsoka's Journey arc will overlap with the events of Dark Disciple and Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir.
The events of both works take place after the Bad Batch arc. Since Ahsoka is not involved with the military and Jedi at this time, there's no reason not to have her story take place synchronously. And since the Pyke Syndicate, a member of Maul's Shadow Collective, is involved in the arc, there's an opportunity for the events of at least one of those things to be referenced.
  • Jossed; the episode guide of "Deal No Deal" confirms that the arc takes place prior to the Bad Batch arc, which itself takes place before Dark Disciple. Marg Krim from the novel does appear, though.

The clone trooper Ahsoka and Rex buried as part of their Faking the Dead ploy will appear as a Chekhov's Gunman earlier in the Siege of Mandalore arc.

"Old Friends Not Forgotten" will show the "business on Cato Neimoidia" Obi-Wan mentioned in Revenge of the Sith.
After all, it has yet to get a canon explanation.
  • Jossed: They were on Yerbana
    • Actually, this one was jossed all the way back in Season 5. Before they were called back to investigate the Jedi Temple Bombings, Anakin and Obi-Wan were on Cato Neimoidia, and the Noodle Incident had already taken place. This is different from Legends, which suggested Anakin and Obi-Wan were on Cato Neimoidia right before ''Revenge of the Sith', but there was never any chance Season 7 would resolve what happened on Cato Neimodia.

Ursa Wren was with the Death Watch on Carlac.
In "Dangerous Debt", she is the one who first sees Ahsoka and reports her presence to Bo-Katan (at least, that's what seems to happen). It's implied that she did so because she recognized Ahsoka, and the only way she could have done that was if she was on Carlac during the events of "A Friend in Need".

Palpatine deliberately ordered a last minute patch to include Ahsoka and Maul in the Order 66 hit list.
Ahsoka was not a jedi, and neither were Maul. Plus, if the Order 66 include any force user, Palpatine and Vader would have been included as well. As a result, it's safe to assume before the order, Palpatine could perceive Anakin was still holding to Ahsoka in his heart even after she left the jedi order, and just like Padme and Obi-Wan which he made sure to isolate Anakin from them, he probably also thought Ahsoka could give him problems to keep his new apprentice on line, so Sidious figured he would need her eliminated as well. As by Maul the reasons are probably much simpler, as the former Sith was probably a loose end for Palpatine after what happened during the clone wars and as such he also needed him dead.As the technology of Star Wars is way beyond current time's technology, the Kaminoans maybe only needed to make an update from their computers without lobotomizing the clones themselves (pretty much like a software patch from distance) just to make sure those two could still catch the bullets as well.

Option 1: A horrible Noodle Incident, which will end up being the reason why Anakin hasn't been promoted to the Jedi Council as of Revenge of the Sith; to the point where nobody brings her up to Anakin's face for fear of him flipping out and killing people. She may:
  • Option 1A: Turn to The Dark Side, resulting in Anakin having to Shoot the Dog,
    • Nearly happened during the Mortis arc after the Son ( Dark Side Incarnate) poisoned her with the dark side.
    • It's always a possibility that she could turn. She's not seen or mentioned anywhere in Episode III, and may well die before Order 66. Her death is just yet another building block for Palpatine to eventually turn Anakin to The Dark Side, who will be revealed (to the viewers) to somehow have been responsible for Ahsoka joining Anakin as his Padawan in the first place.
    • Option 1Aa: Ahsoka founds the Emperor's Hands. For those unfamiliar, the Hands were Palpatine's Force-trained spies and assassins. There's plenty of talk about how "alike" Anakin and Ahsoka are, so it may be possible that Palpatine corrupts and turns her as well, only much more covertly, turning her into the first Hand. The Hands were obliquely mentioned early in the series when Palpatine kidnaps the Force-sensitive children, so this isn't entirely implausible.
  • Option 1B: Make a critical and fatal mistake in battle, leaving Anakin with Survivor Guilt.
  • Option 1C: Frozen In Carbonite or something similar, but in a way where most everyone thinks she's dead, save Anakin, who, by this point, will be widely regarded as highly unstable. She then will get thawed out so as to hang out with Luke, or maybe even Cade Skywalker.
  • Option 1D: Lose her connection to the Force, becoming a modern day Jedi Exile.
  • Option 1E: Reassigned Anakin is going to screw up, Majorly. The Jedi Council will punish him by reassigning Ahsoka to a different Master. This will fuel Anakin's resentment of the Council, accelerating his fall to the Dark Side.
  • Option 1F: Defect or be expelled from the Jedi Order: Disgusted with what she has seen, both physically and psychically, of her Master's descent down the slippery slope, and Obi-Wan and the Council's tacit approval of Anakin's actions, Ahsoka will lodge a complaint and will subsequently leave or be forced to leave the Order. Anakin will not take this well, and will engage her, or those responsible for her expulsion in a very public lightsaber battle. (Or some other, likewise emotionally volatile display of Force) The council, witnessing Anakin's attachment-based actions, will refuse to promote him to the Jedi Council, while Ahsoka will go into hiding, narrowly dodging the mass execution of the Jedi Knights.
  • Option 1G: Die particularly senselessly or cruelly, or simply appear to. Filled with memories of his mother's similarly ignominious death at the hands of the Sand People, Anakin will respond to the apparent death of his quasi-surrogate daughter by having another vengeful, rage-filled episode that leaves multiple people dead. The full circumstances and extent of his rampage are obscured by wartime violence, but Obi-Wan, and by extension, the council, are left with deep-seated suspicions of his instability. Thus, they do not promote him to the Jedi council. If Ahsoka recovers, having likewise suspected or outright witnessed his actions, she'll go into hiding as above, only keeping quiet out of vestigial loyalty. The sudden, suspicious circumstances of her departure will only further the council's reluctance to promote him.
Option 2: Order 66 Alternately, if Ahsoka survives or remains active as a Jedi throughout the Clone Wars, she's left with two branching paths to take:
  • Option 2A: Die during the execution of Order 66: Self-Explanatory.
    • Alternately, Discover the truth about Palpatine shortly before its enactment, but be killed before she can tell anyone.
  • Option 2B: Survive Order 66 and play a role in the upcoming live action series, possibly as a badass Action Girl.
    • It follows that, in this eventuality, she will die at some point in that series.
      • Heres a thought, in The Force Unleashed series, you (as Starkiller) tie up Vader's loose ends. What if one of those loose ends happens to be another of his former apprentices? They use the same style as of yet, maybe one of them notices etcetera.
    • Alternatively, Anakin gives her a heads up. Bascily, Anakin, still feeling a bit protective of Ahsoka, warns her to get out of there, or invites her to join him. Weither Palpatine agrees or disagrees with ths is depending on if he views Ahsoka as another tool to ensure Anakin's loyalty.
      • Even as Vader, Ahsoka would be the last person still alive that he truly cared about, and he most likely would fake her death and tell her to go far away out of both his and the Empire's reach. This would reveal that there is still good left in him and foreshadow his ultimate sacrifice to come in Return of the Jedi. Bonus points if Ahsoka also had some kind of vision seeing this and tells him that there's still hope for him, right before she leaves.
Option 3: Survive Order 66, but perish later.
  • She's out of Republic Space, or on a deep cover mission, or otherwise not available during the events of Episode 3. Maybe Rex and crew either don't get the Order 66 memo or have enough development to disobey it. Still, the Purge manages to do a pretty good job of hunting down survivors. I figured that Vader does have to kill her himself... assuming he can't turn her. It's Personal, and he's the type who would want to be hands-on with this. But, there's a witness. He's too young to understand, and he never will get the necessary information to make sense of it because Vader will never speak of it... but the incident sticks in his head, as does the very unorthodox Shien grip he saw Ahsoka using. Her sacrifice leaves him with just enough doubts about his master to turn against him later...
Option 4: Quit for entirely mundane reasons
  • One of the safest ways for the writers to ensure that she doesn't die is to have her quit and take up a more safe job or simply go back to her family for whatever reason. Maybe she could fall in love, but then decide that it's more important then being a Jedi?
    • This is implied in the Mortis trilogy, when she sees force ghost of a grown up version of herself.
    • Perhaps she'll end up like Jolee Bindo and live as a hermit on a Mid or Outer Rim planet.

And the winner is (drum roll please)... leaves the Order, but it isn't quite over yet.

Maul will survive the series.
So the Maul/Vader later fights in the comic referenced above could be the real deal.

Season Six will be the last season.
Because they're gonna have to end the series at some point, ending it possibly with what happens to Ahsoka. It'll also make sense to end it on season six because then it will have two seasons for each year of The Clone Wars (three years). And if the writers want to continue with the stories of the characters that have been introduced (Ahsoka, Lux Bonteri, Cad Bane, Hondo) they could make a sequel series which covers the gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
  • Now that Ahsoka's left the Order, this seems likely.
  • This article.
  • Confirmed, but it was supposed to go to Season Eight.
    • Now Jossed, the installment has been revived for a seventh season.

RX-24 from Star Tours will make an appearance.
Either as an Easter Egg cameo or as a character in an episode.
  • Confirmed — for Rebels.

Ahsoka will become a Gray Paladin, a Fallanassi, or some other kind of non-mainstream Force-user.
Seeing as she has left the Order of her own volition, but at the same time, is clearly still a good guy and opposed to the Separatists/Sith, it's easy to assume that Ahsoka will try to continue fighting the good fight in her own way, free of the Council's obstructive influence.
  • Seems to me that Onderon or Kiros would be the natural choices for her, but she may want to wipe the slate cleaner than even that.
  • Basically confirmed in the season 2 finale of Star Wars Rebels. When Vader mentions that Jedi don't seek revenge, she snarls that she's "no Jedi."

The Clone Wars will end with a different perspective of Revenge of the Sith.
It'll be through the perspective of characters introduced/developed in the series, especially Ashoka. Given what happens in Episode III, it will be one of the darkest episodes, if not the darkest. It'll be a Sequel Hook to Star Wars: Rebels, where you can expect a battle between Vader and Ahsoka. Considering the Foregone Conclusion, it will be even darker.
  • It was supposed to end on an arc showing what Ahsoka and Rex were doing during the events of Revenge of the Sith, fighting in the Siege of Mandalore.
  • And now we may very well get our wish with the installment being revived!

The Clone Wars will end in some Revenge of the Sith reenactment TV Movie.
Well, the series does take place in between, and it make a badass finale.
  • Maybe it could be Revenge/Order 66 from Ahsoka's point of view?
  • That would be awesome!
  • It was supposed to end with an arc about the Siege of Mandalore, starring Ahsoka and taking place at the same time as Revenge of the Sith.
    • Somewhat confirmed with installment being revived.

Some of the 501st members who originated in The Clone Wars may have discovered their inhibitor chips and removed them some time after the Order 66 arc.
Considering how touched Rex (and possibly Commander Fox) was by Fives' death, he may have looked further into his claims more secretively and warned some of the 501st members closest to him (such as Jesse and Kix). It could explain why we don't see any of them in Revenge of the Sith.
  • The Attack on the Jedi Temple: the 501st Legion under the command of the newly christened Lord Vader march on the Jedi Temple. They were technically in Episode III, they just weren't named and didn't have any lines, because honestly slaughtering younglings probably leaves most people without much desire for conversation. Also they are incredibly loyal to Anakin, if he said the Jedi had to die, and he led the charge, they would follow. Since the wording of Order 66 specifically refers to "Jedi Officers" this series actually explains why they would follow Vader on a child killing spree, children are not officers Order 66 had nothing to do with that slaughter, that was pure Sith. Though I doubt any of those good clone could sleep at night afterwords.
  • Seemingly confirmed - images of Rex and Wolffe from Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels show scars from where the inhibitor chips are located, suggesting that they were removed at some point, presumably by the final story arc which would've shown where Rex was during Order 66.
  • Confirmed.
    • Unconfirmed, by way of Not His Sled. Captain Rex didn't remove his chip until Order 66 was out, and he did turn on Ahsoka until she was able to take out the chip.

The Empire wasn't able to access the list of Force-sensitive children.
In the season 2 premiere arc, it's revealed the Jedi have a list of Force-sensitive children, future Jedi, that's stored on a Data Crystal that can only be read by a Jedi Holocron. In Rebels, it's revealed that Jedi and Sith holocrons can't be opened by Force-users of the opposite philosophy. Near the end of "Children of the Force", after the stolen holocron and crystal are recovered, Mace Windu says that there's no evidence that the list was copied. Therefore, it's possible that the Empire may not have been able to access the list, and therefore seize all of the children on it.

Ziro the Hutt wasn't saved by Cad Bane for altruistic reasons.
Jabba the Hutt hired Cad Bane and his crew sometime after the Clone Wars movie to go after Ziro for playing a major role in kidnapping his son for the Hutts to ally themselves with the Separatists, so when Bane arrives back at Jabba's palace, it's Rancour feeding time!
  • Confirmed: Ziro had incriminating evidence against the Hutts, and they wanted him to give them the evidence. He didn't...He wasn't fed to a Rancor, but he did bite it.

There will be massive a downer-ending episode where every inmate of the republic prison(s?) will break out.
  • Wat Tambor, Poggle the Lesser, Bossk and Boba are under arrest by the republic. Through the appearances of Poggle and Tambor in Revenge of the Sith they somehow have to get out. Why not let the droid army infiltrate the prison and stage a mass-breakout to free their leaders and damage the Coruscant and Republics citizens lives.
    • A corollary to this is that Ahsoka will either die or be crippled to the point of retirement trying to combat the breakout, which is why she was MIA by the time of Revenge Of The Sith.
    • Perhaps as a direct lead into the start of Revenge of the Sith; free the prisoners, attack Coruscant, kidnap Palpatine.
      • That's my headcanon until the Mouse Overlord declares otherwise. While attacking Coruscant with the intent to kidnap Palpatine, a second, smaller strike force was dispatch to release Wat Tambor, Poggle the Lesser, and any other Separatists who'd been captured along the way. Due to their importance to the cause, they were quickly put on a shuttle to Utapau while Grievous overwhelmed Palpatine's security forces. Thus, the Separatist leaders were able to escape before Obi-Wan and Anakin's reinforcements arrived and cut off Grievous from retreating with his valuable hostage.

In a shocker ending, Grievous kills Ahsoka in her sleep.
In the last episode, Ahsoka ends up saving the galaxy in some way, shape, or form. The screen fades to black with everyone cheering for Ahsoka, leaving the viewers with a grin on their faces... but it's not over. Suddenly, a scene starts showing Ahsoka sleeping in a dark room for a few seconds. Then, a dark figure slowly walks in, and a lightsaber turns on. You know the rest.
  • Jossed: Ahsoka is not killed by Grievous.

The Clone Wars will end with Ahsoka's death.
With all the focus on her character ever since the pilot movie, she'll likely go out in a massive Heroic Sacrifice and be posthumously given the rank of Jedi Knight by the entire Council. The last few minutes will also directly lead into the beginning of Episode III, followed by a Flash Forward to the very end of Return of the Jedi in which Ahsoka meets Anakin again for the first time in over twenty years (as Force Ghosts) and says that she always had faith that he'd come back.
  • Jossed: Ahsoka survives and later appears in Rebels.

Jabba's son Rotta will die and that leads him to an extreme amount of guilty eating
It seems in the prequels he and other members of his species are fat but able to move by themselves and since he's never mentioned in the original trilogy and Jabba is massive in "Return of the Jedi" (excluding appearance in the digital remastered "New Hope"). Rotta was probably killed in a rival criminal clan's plot against Jabba and so after getting his revenge he just ate and ate until he was morbidly obese.
  • Jossed.

The series isn't Republic/Imperial propaganda, but it is Palpatine's pet project.
Remember, it's canon than he wrote a play called 'The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise', which is essentially autobiographical. These films are things he does to relax, instead of sleeping.
  • Jossed

The Father, Obi-Wan and Yoda all faded into the force because...
They were all embodiments of the will of the Force, guiding Anakin to his true destiny. When they "died", the returned to the Force, because they are essentially The Force anyway.
  • Jossed

Near the end of The Clone Wars, Sidious will start to lose his faith in Dooku due to his constant failures.
Another reason why he ordered Anakin to execute him at the beginning of Episode III. Another factor is him learning that Ventress is still alive, he'll believe Dooku lied to him or got sloppy in killing her.
  • Or alternatively, Dooku will lose faith in his master. He could be internally disappointed in his Sidious' cruelty, but it could be for the best.

Near the end of the installment, Nute Gunray and Rune Haako will become fed up with the war.
They are tired of losing their battles and losing money. They are tired of missed opportunities in capturing Padme. And tired of Sidious' deceiving. In the end, they decided they just want peace and want the war to be done with. This all leads up to their fates at the end of Episode III.
  • Jossed

The episodes "Corruption" and "The Academy" are a lead up to the conclusion of Mandalore's story.
The Duchess will continue to be completely incompetent at her job while still being insufferable about it. Burning down that warehouse full of evidence even knowing it better wasn´t for having an acceptable special effects/action scene in the otherwise boring episode, it was intentional. When the headmaster of the school said the budget was too small he was right, only because of the tea deal he got enough money for the school and just in a coincidence something for himself. All of "Corruption"'s problems are traceable to the Duchess. She just had to give a parade for Padmé when she casually visited the world, which was the reason why there was only one officer at the docks so he could be bribed without any problem. This will be made public through Death Watch spies. They will bring the people to rebel against this incompetent monarchy and after Satines death/exile Death Watch will be a "temporary" government and reinstates the former Mandalore.

As further evidence: We already saw the people from The Clone Wars writing illogical things and explaining them later. That Zabraks were from another planet than Dathomir was explained an episode later, General Krells problem with leading clones likewise. Mandalores retcon problem is far too big to be ignored entirely.

  • Well, at least they rebelled.

Palpatine is behind the pacifist faction of the Mandalorians being in power.
And likely on several other Proud Warrior Race Guy planets too. After all, we wouldn't want non-Clone soldiers mucking up the scene or replacing the Jedi as generals, now would we?
  • Doubtful, given the work Palpatine puts in to depose Satine and her government. Plus, I don't see how they would have 'mucked up' the scene more than any other soldiers coming from other planets.
  • Actually, that has a lot to do with an attempted purge of the Mandalorians perpetrated by the Republic some 700 years before TCW. The New Mandalorians took power during restructuring in the centuries after that. They had originally existed as a faction that wanted to have Mandalorian Space join the Republic to instantly become one of its most influential members, but were shouted down because that would lead to fewer wars and the belief that a Mandalorian not in combat is not a Mandalorian. This was covered briefly in The Essential Guide to Warfare.
    • That's not to say that the Sith as a whole had nothing to do with it, though. Darth Bane's order played a very long game, and the Mandalorians were a wild card. Certainly they didn't want some Mando warlord starting a major interstellar conflict too soon for the Sith to capitalize on it. But once the Clone Wars were in full swing, the New Mandalorians had outlived their usefulness.
  • Jossed

Ventress will come crawling back to Dooku.
Her first attempt at finding a new place for herself clearly didn't work out very well; while she got her money, she still failed to find her niche and ended up on her own again by the end. Eventually, facing the harsh galaxy alone, with no sisters or friends to support her, will prove too difficult, forcing Asajj to swallow her pride and try returning to Dooku. He'll surely punish her for her betrayal, but since his prospects with Savage have long since dried up and there are no other apprentices available for him, he'll grudgingly take her back under his wing...just long enough to send her to fight in the Battle of Boz Pity, where she meets the fate we all knew was coming to her.
  • Jossed

Maul will die at Dooku's hand.
Think about it. Aside from Maul's goal for getting revenge on Obi-Wan, Maul would want to reclaim his place in the Rule of Two. He confronts Dooku, and the two have a duel for Sidious' apprenticeship. As Maul gains the advantage, Dooku reveals the fact that Maul was never a true Sith, as Sidious was apprenticed to Plagueis throughout Maul's Sith career. This causes Maul to lose his composure, and Dooku makes a comeback and kills Maul. Maul's dying realization that his whole life was a lie is also a great way to create sympathy for the character.
  • It can't work. According to End Game, a short story by James Luceno published in the re-edition of The Phantom Menace novel, Maul has already figured out that his master and him weren't the only Sith and that Sidious' master was still around.
    • Then perhaps the two still fight, Dooku tries to pull off that trick, and Maul says he already knew that? But Dooku still manages to win.
    • Also, Maul apparently knows that Sidious is Palpatine. If the Jedi capture him and interrogate him, they will learn that vital fact. Palpatine, as Sidious, does not want the Jedi to learn this, so he has Maul killed.
      • Jossed. Palpatine leaves Maul alive. For now.

In line with the previous entry, Dooku wants revenge for Qui-Gon's murder.
I'm thinking a three-way battle between Maul, Dooku and Obi-Wan. The latter two might have an Enemy Mine moment and gang up on Maul. Maybe something as a shout out to the battle in Ep.I. And given Dooku's grandfatherly feelings for Obi-Wan it might work. Dooku and Obi-Wan over-power Maul, and Dooku offers Obi-Wan the killing blow because he wants him to cross over to the Dark side and become his apprentice, so he uses Qui-Gon's death as a trigger. He'll refuse and Dooku will kill Maul before the Jedi can get any information out of him about the identity of Darth Sidious.
  • Jossed

The narrator of the SW Battlefront II campaign is Captain Rex.
Anyone who's played Star Wars: Battlefront II knows that the 501st legionnaire who provides the narration for the campaign missions sounds exactly like Captain Rex.
  • So do all the other clones, since they're all cloned from the same person.
    • Actually, each clone is voiced slightly differently. Play Star Wars: Republic Commando. It throws 'all clones sound the same' right out the window.
      • Funny thing about that: "Boss" (the player character) was voiced by Temuera Morrison, "Scorch" and "Fixer" had different voice actors, and "Sev" was suggested to be a little... off from the standard. All clone character sound different, even the clone NPCs not in your squad don't sound exactly the same.
  • Jossed

Bossk will drive a segway at some point.

The Final Battle with Maul will take place on Naboo.
And Maul will even state how fitting it is that he and Obi-Wan's final battle takes place there.
  • Jossed: It will actually happen on Tatooine in Rebels, during the Empire's Reign. But Maul pretty much says the above statement in regards to it.

Sidious plans to keep Maul as a glorified lab rat.
Partly to try and figure out how he managed to cheat death (that, of course, being one of his overarching goals), and otherwise so he can exploit his powers and abilities for future use, probably extracting his DNA for either the doppelganger that Vader eventually fights or the Maulkiller clone and downloading his saber style into a database that will eventually become PROXY.

Ahsoka and Maul's fates will be left forever unresolved due to Disney's cancellation of The Clone Wars and dissolution of the series' team
Exactly what it says.
  • At least for a while. Then the writers will filter back in through comics and books, and we'll get Word of Gods.
  • Jossed: their fates are resolved in Rebels.

Darth Maul will be the villain in Episode VII
Palpatine mentioned that he has "other uses" for Darth Maul. Aside from more realistic explanations like using him to learn how to cheat death or use him to find Talzin, what if Palpatine decides to use him as a plan B if the Sith fail with their current plan (which we know happened in Return of the Jedi)? Palpatine might put him into stasis, and when the force tips in favor of the Jedi, he will be awakened. A rumour that was reported was that thirty years after Revenge of the Sith, a disciple of Palpatine would try to rebuild the Sith and destroy the jedi. What if this turns out to be Maul? Disney maybe deliberately intervened in the production of The Clone Wars so they could have a say in the storyline (with Palpatine's other uses being a sign of potential for them), and they decide that Maul will survive because of his marketability to the public (of course, they have to explain his survival to people who haven't seen TCW though).

The Green Force techniques used by the Nightsisters are Light Side not Dark Side
Mother Talzin clamed her Green Force techniques come from the Winged Goddess which according to sources is the Daughter who is a embodiment of the Light Side. Of course that means that Green Force Lightning, Reanimation of the Dead, Body Shaping, Metal Shaping, Object Forming and of course becoming Green Mist are all Light Side techniques. It seems Yoda was telling the truth when he said the Light Side was stronger than the Dark Side. It would be easier to learn the full power of the Light Side if you could get your hands on a Nightsister Book of Law or Book of Shadows. The only benefit of the Dark Side is speed from what has been seen.
  • Potentially Jossed. Talzin in Season Six states that she's "not a natural Force user", but uses "magic". This may be an indication that Nightsister "magic" is indeed something completely different from the Force. Or that Talzin just doesn't know what the hell she's talking about.

Ahsoka's dark side brought out by the Son is a previously-dormant separate personality.
Ahsoka was born with a severe multiple personality disorder where her mind is essentially split into two separate personas—one the innocent Padawan, the other a demented and sadistic psychopath. Her training at the temple helped her keep her psychotic other half dormant, but the Son's interference on Mortis set the wicked side of her free. After she left the Jedi she started getting plagued with unexplained blackouts and strange messages on her holocom from someone who sounded almost exactly like her. She managed to get into contact with her other half through meditation, and the two initially were at odds with one another, but after Order 66 happened they both decided they needed to learn to coexist to survive.
