The episode will be called “Siege of Lothal,” and will continue the story from where we left off, after it was revealed that she was the leader of the rebel group called “Fulcrum” back in season 1.
This new featurette gives us a history lesson on the character starting with her debut back in The Clone Wars all the way to her appearance in “Rebels”.
“Ahsoka in Clone Wars was more like Ezra,” Ashley Eckstein explained of her character’s journey. “She was the student, she was the Padawan. Now she’s more of like the mentor, or the teacher — she’s more like Obi-Wan, or Yoda.”

More importantly this strengthens the belief that there will be a big fight in this season between Ahsoka and her former master, Anakin Skywalker now Darth Vader.
