"Coming up next week..."
The next episode is titled "To Catch A Jedi". Ahsoka is still on the run when she makes a deal with Asajj Ventress to help her. Most of the scenes showed Asajj attacking Ahsoka, not helping her, so I'm not sure what the deal will be. This basically cancels out Asajj as the person who was ultimately responsible for the Temple bombing. Perhaps the reason she was attacking Ahsoka was because Ventress is still a bounty hunter and Ahsoka probably has a bounty because she escaped from prison. It'll be interesting because it's been a long time since they last dueled and both of them have grown a lot. Ventress is a good and interesting character because she doesn't really have an allegiance anymore so she could potentially be good though I doubt that the Republic could immediately forgive her for all of her various previous crimes against the Republic. In the comic books, after being betrayed by Dooku and supposedly killed, her last dying breath seems to confirm that Obi-Wan was right about her being good on the inside. Though she seemed dead and was going to be brought back to Coruscant for a proper funeral, she awoke in the bacta tank ship and told the pilots to "fly as far away as they could". That resolution probably won't happen though because in the comic book that happened seconds after she was betrayed by Dooku, and this is several years/months after.
