What Is The Acolyte All About?

The Acolyte takes place towards the end of the High Republic era, which took place a century before the events of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. The series follows a Jedi master who is looking into multiple crimes that have been committed recently. He comes across a person who is a learner of Padawan which leads to weird situations.

Leslye Headland is the creator and showrunner of The Acolyte. She is also the executive producer with Kathleen Kennedy, Jeff F. King, Simon Emanuel, and Jason Micallef. The series premiered on June 4th, 2024.

What Happened In The Previous Episode?

The Acolyte Episode 2 was called Revenge / Justice and it was released on June 4th, 2024. Directed by Leslye Headland, the episode was written by Charmaine DeGrate and Jason Micallef. Earlier, Mae (played by Amandla Stenberg) is planning to eliminate the next Jedi.

In this episode, we see Mae has hired a child to do her work. She goes inside the temple of Jedi and finds Master Torbin (played by Dean-Charles Chapman).

What Happened In The Previous Episode?

Before she can kiss, an alarm is set in the temple and she is forced to leave. Jecki (Dafne Keen) still does not believe in Osha (Stenberg). We are also introduced to Qimir who is close to Mae. He is also linked to the Sith Lord. The episode also showcased the childhood of Osha and Mae.

While Osha was saved by Sol, Mae had ignited the fire that killed her family. Later, Torbin is asked by Mae to either reveal all the crimes he has done in front of the Jedi Council or die by poisoning. However, he takes the vial and drinks it, before collapsing.

What To Expect From The Acolyte Episode 3?

The Acolyte Episode 3 is directed by Kogonada and it was written by Eileen Shim and Jasmyne Flournoy. The prior episode revealed that Mae is targeting all the Jedi who were there when her sister died as she holds them responsible. The next episode will continue to showcase Mae’s pursuit of all the Jedi she believes to be linked to her sister’s death.

Sol had said that Osha had survived the fire but Mae doesn’t know this. So The Acolyte Episode 3 might showcase a reunion of the two or maybe Mae realizing that her sister is actually alive. This might put an end to the killing spree she is on. We can also expect some more action sequences between different individuals as they fight for survival.

The Acolyte Episode 3 will be continuing the main storyline and we can expect more subplots to emerge as well which will conclude in the end. The first two episodes work as a character introduction exercise so the next episode will actually move the plot and will intensify the mystery surrounding all the murders.
