This week’s episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars features a major connection to Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Spoilers for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode titled, “Together Again” ahead!
Heading into the final season of The Clone Wars, it was expected that there would be some connections to recent additions of the Star Wars canon. In the final trailer for the series, we got a glimpse at a young Caleb Dume, otherwise known as Kanan from Star Wars Rebels. This week’s episode of The Clone Wars had the biggest connection in the season so far, with a major connection to Solo.
As the final season leads to the Siege of Mandalore, Ahsoka Tano overhears a conversation between Maul and Marg Krim, member of the Pyke Syndicate. During their conversation, Maul mentions Crimson Dawn while he is threatening Marg Krim. In Solo, Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra works for a crime organization known as Crimson Dawn, which is ran by Maul.
In The Clone Wars season five episode titled, “Eminence,” Maul sets up the Shadow Collective with Pre-Vizsla. The Shadow Collective was a crime organization made up of the Pyke Syndicate, Black Sun, and the Hutt Clan. The group would eventually disband in the Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir comic books series. However, it’s revealed in Solo that Maul has formed a new group in the criminal underworld called Crimson Dawn. It was previously believed that Crimson Dawn was formed during the time of the Empire, but now the group is active towards the end of the Clone Wars.
There have been rumors that we could be getting a Crimson Dawn series on Disney Plus. Could this name drop be hinting towards a future project? Are there any other Star Wars connections you would like to see in the Siege of Mandalore? Sound-off in the comments section below!
Here is the synopsis for “Together Again”:
Believing they are better without her, Ahsoka makes a deal to free the Martez sisters and soon attempts her own escape, but she is left reeling from the discovery of the true mastermind behind the Pyke spice operation.
