Ahsoka hasn’t yet been officially renewed for another season, but with all of the loose threads left by the season 1 finale, it’s hard not to dream about where season 2 could take these characters.

With Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson), Sabine (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakhno), and Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) now stranded on Peridea and Thrawn (Lars Mikkelson) returning home with an army of entombed Nightsisters in tow, there is a lot at stake across not just one, but two galaxies. Now that the Nightsisters have officially made a comeback in the New Republic era, I can’t think of a better character to bring into Ahsoka than Nightsister Merrin (Tina Ivlev).

First introduced in the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Merrin has since appeared in the 2023 sequel Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and the companion novel Jedi: Battle Scars. Like Lady Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) in Ahsoka, Merrin is a survivor of the Dathomir Massacre enacted by General Grievous, Count Dooku, and the Separatists during the Clone Wars. However, unlike Elsbeth, Asajj Ventress, and most other Nightsisters that have appeared in Star Wars television shows thus far, Merrin isn’t considered a bad guy.
