Watching as Ahsoka–who had seemed really cool and awesome, especially with how Kanan looked up to her and felt like an inexperienced kid around her, just like Ezra felt around Kanan–watching as she screamed at Darth Vader was weird.
But what was even weirder, to the point of Ezra wondering if the galaxy had turned upside down? Darth Vader was screaming back at her.
“You are blinded by your attachment to the Jedi!”
“Really? I was kicked out by the Jedi! The only attachment I had was to you and Obi-Wan!”
“Obi-Wan was a FOOL and UNWORTHY OF YOUR RESPECT!”
“Oh, REALLY, MASTER?”
Ezra edged a bit closer to Kanan, gripping his lightsaber tighter. “What is happening?” he whispered out of the corner of his mouth.
Kanan looked blindsided. “Wow. I always heard Masters Depa and Mace talk about how crazy Yoda’s whole line was, and that Obi-Wan to Ahsoka was an utter disaster, but … wow.”
Kanan took Ezra’s arm and pulled him back a bit farther. “Anakin Skywalker is Darth Vader.”
Ezra opened his mouth to yelp, only for Kanan to pinch him. He managed to keep his voice down, even as he glared at his master. “Ow. And how could Anakin Skywalker be Darth Vader? Have you heard Ahsoka talk about her master?”
He nodded, his eyes still fixed on Ahsoka and Darth Vader. “I don’t think she knew before now. But … yeah, that’s definitely gotta be Anakin Skywalker. Wow.”
The screaming had gotten louder with the mention of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ezra’s head hurt. “Should we … should we do something?”
“I’m not getting into the middle of that,” Kanan said, gesturing towards the two of them. He looked around, then tugged on Ezra’s arm. “C’mon. Let’s go back to the Phantom. This … this is gonna take a while.”
“We can’t just leave Ahsoka!”
Kanan leaned down and whispered in Ezra’s ear. “She’ll be okay. Because yeah, that might be Darth Vader–but he’s also Skywalker. And if there’s one thing I know? He’d never really hurt Ahsoka.”
The clash of lightsabers made them both look back to see Ahsoka and Darth Vader–Anakin Skywalker?–duelling furiously.
Ezra looked at Kanan, who sighed and lifted his lightsaber. “All right, let’s go.”
And with that, the last members of Mace Windu’s line dashed into the fray.
