This Star Wars: Ahsoka article contains spoilers.

So much of Ahsoka‘s third episode feels like classic Star Wars, from Sabine’s blind training nodding back to A New Hope to the space battle that combines elements from both the Original and Prequel Trilogies for one of the best dogfights ever made for Disney+. But that doesn’t mean Ahsoka has skipped out on bringing back a bunch of stuff from Rebels this time around. In fact, one major cameo allows this Disney+ series to pick up exactly where its animated predecessor left off.

Here are all the Star Wars easter eggs and callbacks we spotted in “Time to Fly”:

Evan Whitten as Jacen Syndulla

There was never any doubt that Jacen Syndulla would pop up in Ahsoka, but we definitely didn’t expect to see this little dude so soon. Introduced in the final minutes of the Rebels series finale all the way back in 2018, Jacen is Hera’s son with the late Jedi hero Kanan Jarrus, so when he tells his mom in this episode that he hopes to become a Jedi one day, it feels like a bit of foreshadowing. Surely, Jacen has inherited his father’s Force sensitivity?
