Barriss Offee’s story is unfinished – The last time we saw Ahsoka Tano’s friend was when she was arrested and tried at Tano’s home for the Jedi Temple hangar bombing. Now with the Obi Wan Kenobi series in three weeks, there are a few questions we’ve already asked. The first is whether Obi-Wan will face the Inquisitor, while the second is why he will leave Tatooine. We also wondered what the status of the Rebel Alliance will be when the series begins.
Coming back to Barriss, we have to wonder if she will play a role in the series. It has long been theorized that she became an Inquisitor when the Jedi Order fell. This is what we are going to think about in this post. Unfortunately, we don’t know where the character went after The Clone Wars. We only have what Dave Filoni said about Offee’s story that isn’t over.
We believe it one hundred percent. However, he said that a decade ago nothing had been done. We also hope they re-explore the story of Jacen Syndulla and explain what happened to Korkie Kryze.
Do we believe Barriss will appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi?
So, to begin with, we need to answer this question. No. We do NOT believe Barriss will appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi. What reason would she have to be there? She has a history with him, and her presence would take away the main crux of the story. We think that’s why new villainous characters were created for the series, aside from the Grand Inquisitor, the Fifth Brother, and Darth Vader.
Barriss, however, could appear in the next Ahsoka series. Here’s why we believe that. An article by Collider’s Matt Villei ran again two weeks ago saying something interesting. Bryce Dallas Howard, regular director of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, said fans would “be thrilled” with the upcoming show.
Now, the only way for her to know the contents of the show is to have seen the scripts and to have a role in the production, that is to say the direction. So, while it hasn’t been confirmed, we have a theory that Barriss could appear on the show. Sure, we might be a long way off, but where would it be perfect to bring the character back?
When Barriss came up with the idea of bombing the Temple Hangar, she didn’t think about the consequences it would have for Ahsoka. If the old friends crossed paths again, that would end this story as it could explain why Offee chose Tano as the scapegoat for his crime.
