Loved this moment, as much as every interaction between him and Obiwan in his show. Only discrepancies I have is the de aging, looks a bit overdone & I don’t see his traditional lightsaber from episode III. Besides those I love seeing Hayden back in more Star Wars projects

The return of Anakin Skywalker to Ahsoka marks a significant milestone
For the unversed, the Star Wars franchise is known for focusing on masters and apprentices, and the Disney+ series Ahsoka is no different. The latest episode of the series witnessed the union of master and apprentice for the first time in person. For the ones who still haven’t watched the series yet, spoilers alert.
In the latest episode, Ahsoka Tano makes her return in the last scene, and her condition doesn’t seem very good. While it initially seems like Ahsoka is in water, it’s later revealed that she is on a celestial walkway. It’s then that Ahsoka hears a known voice that says, “Hello, Snips,” which is a nickname she was given by her former mentor, Anakin Skywalker.
Anakin Skywalker returns because his students need him. Moreover, as previously revealed by Ahsoka, her training was left incomplete, hence to finish her training her master has returned.
