Could Barriss Offee Be One Of The Inquisitors In Obi-Wan Kenobi?


Barriss Offee’s story is unfinished – The last time we see Ahsoka Tano’s friend is when she is arrested and tried in Tano’s place for the Bombing of the Jedi Temple Hangar. Now, with the Obi-Wan Kenobi series three weeks away, there are a few questions we’ve already asked. The first is if Obi-Wan will face off against the Inquisitorius, while the second is why he will leave Tatooine. We’ve also questioned what the status of the Rebel Alliance will be by the time the series starts.

Going back to Barriss, we need to question whether she will play a role in the series. It has long been theorised that she became an inquisitor when the Jedi Order fell. That’s what we’ll ponder over in this post. Unfortunately, we don’t know where the character went after The Clone Wars. We only have what Dave Filoni has said about Offee’s story not being over.

We one hundred percent believe him. However, he said that about a decade ago, nothing was done. We also hope they reexplore Jacen Syndulla’s story and explain what happened to Korkie Kryze.

Do We Believe Barriss Will Appear In Obi-Wan Kenobi?

So, to begin, we have 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 being there would take away the main crux of the story. We believe that this was why new villain characters were created for the series, outside of the Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother and Darth Vader.

Barriss, however, could appear in the upcoming Ahsoka series. Here’s why we believe this. An article by Collider’s Matt Villei dropped two weeks again, saying something interesting. Bryce Dallas Howard, a regular director on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, said fans “would be in for a treat” with the upcoming show.

Now, the only way she would know about the show’s contents is if she has seen the scripts and has a role in production, i.e. directing. So, while it has not been confirmed, we have a theory that Barriss might appear in the show. Of course, we could be way off, but where else would it be perfect to bring the character back?

When Barriss came up with the idea to bomb the Temple Hangar, she didn’t think about the consequences it would have for Ahsoka. If the former friends were to cross paths again, it would end this story as it could explain why Offee chose Tano as the scapegoat for her crime.
