Explore The Revelation Of Ahsoka Tano’s Almost-love Interest In The Clone Wars Series And The Decision To Focus On Other Aspects Of Her Character Development
The animated Clone Wars series has been a fan favorite since its debut in 2008. The series follows the adventures of Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan, as she navigates the Clone Wars. Ashley Eckstein, the actress behind Ahsoka, recently revealed that the character almost had a love interest in the show’s seventh season.
Ahsoka’s romantic life has never been fully explored in the series. In Season 3, Ahsoka had a short-lived dynamic with Lux Bonteri, but they never became an official couple. Despite this, Ahsoka’s character still deals with romantic feelings.
In the original plans for Season 7, Ahsoka would have had a boyfriend named Nyx Okami. However, Eckstein revealed that she wasn’t “super crazy” about this plotline. She was glad that the writers changed it to focus on the Martez sisters instead.
Nyx Okami was meant to be a Han Solo-type character who Ahsoka would have met in Coruscant’s underworld. He was also an attempt to have an Asian male lead in Clone Wars.
While it’s unclear how fans would have reacted to Ahsoka having a love interest, it’s understandable why the writers decided against it. The storyline with the Martez sisters wasn’t well-received by fans or critics.
The next time fans see Ahsoka will be in her own solo series, where she will be busy dealing with new threats to the galaxy. She won’t have time for a romance. The series is rumored to feature Ahsoka, Sabine, and Ezra as they uncover new mysteries in space, including the iconic Rebels villain Thrawn.
