In “Andor“, Mon Mothma reveals that she has a rebel contact that she wishes to bring into the inner circle. But which well-known “Star Wars” character could it be?
In the fourth episode of “Star Wars: Andor” it was revealed that Senator Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Riley) is in cahoots with Luthen (Stellan Skarsgard) – for the rebellion. She explains to her partner in crime that she wants to bring another person into the inner circle, a rebel contact.
But who is this mysterious contact of Mon Mothma? Is she already known from the “Star Wars” universe? We bring you the most likely candidates to appear as Mon Mothma’s rebel contact in the upcoming episodes of Disney+!
The most likely candidate for Mon Mothma’s contact is Bail Organa. The role also features prominently in ” Obi-Wan Kenobi ” and “Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.” In the “Star Wars” chronology, Bail Organa is already one of the most important leaders of the rebels at the time of “Andor”.
As we learn in ” Star Wars Rebels “, Organa has already founded and helped several rebel cells. Organa also fits perfectly into the Andor universe through Jimmy Smits’ appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as the series is a prequel to the film, which is chronologically set five years later.
Due to Bail Organa’s important position in the Rebellion, he would definitely be an important contact for Mon Mothma. Additionally, both sit in the Imperial Senate, allowing them to cover for each other if they threaten to be exposed.
Ahsoka Tano / Fulcrum
One person who is very actively supporting the rebellion at the time of “Andor” is Ahsoka. Since her appearance in ” The Mandalorian “, played by Rosario Dawson, the role has been on everyone’s lips again and an appearance would definitely be possible. Especially since she mainly takes over the intelligence work for Bail Organa.
Ahsoka serves under Bail Organa and the alias Fulcrum as an active entity to support the rebel cells. Should she appear, Bail Organa is certainly not far away. However, due to her more active role in the rebellion, not having a Senate cover like Bail does, she could be Mon Mothma’s contact – possibly arranged by Bail Organa.
General Dodonna appears alongside Mon Mothma in both Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. He is also one of the leading figures in the rebellion, which means that his appearance in “Andor” is not unlikely, especially since an actor would already be known in ” Game of Thrones ” star Ian McElhinney.
However, since General Dodonna is more of a military strategist than an underground man who gathers information, Dodonna does not quite fit the contact person Mon Mothma describes. Then Bail Organa or Ahsoka Tano come into question.
In “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” the Mon Calamari, Admiral Raddus, was introduced – and killed outright. At the Battle of Scarif, Raddus takes a leading role in the rebellion and dies. In “Andor” there is now the opportunity to expand his story a bit.
Like General Dodonna, Raddus may be the contact for Mon Mothma, although Raddus is more of a military strategist than an intelligence officer. So the top suspects are still Bail Organa and Ahsoka Tano!
New episodes await us every Wednesday in the Disney+ novelty program. In total, the first season of “Andor” consists of 12 episodes. “Andor” season 2 is already confirmed.
