Welcome to the Ending Explained for Star Wars: Visions, Season 2, Episode 1, titled “Sith.” This is the first episode of the new season of Visions, a collection of short films created by some of the best animation studios in the world. The new season releases on Disney+ to celebrate May 4th, which is widely known worldwide as Stars Wars Day. This episode is written and directed by Rodrigo Blaas and animated by the great animation studio El Guiri.
The episode’s title is “Sith,” and with it, the premise is explained very clearly. We are introduced very early on to our protagonist, which will be called “The Apprentice.” She is a slender woman with black and white hair. She is woken up by her faithful droid called E2. It all seems very normal, and The Apprentice prepares to start her daily routine. She tells E2 that she couldn’t finish the painting the previous night. After having her breakfast, she moves around the temple, and we see that the hallways are all white and covered with colored paint.
The Apprentice is a painter, and she and E2 have been trying to paint the inside of the temple with beautiful colors. She tries again to finish the painting she has in her mind, but something stops her: a darkness that lives on the temple’s walls. She fails again when E2 warns her of an object recently falling near the temple. The Apprentice wants to go and see what it is, so she gets in her vehicle and leaves the temple.
When she arrives, she finds out that this is no meteorite that fell to the planet, this was a ship, and someone destroyed it. The Apprentice is ambushed by a Sith Lord, who has two assassin droids as companions. The Sith Lord speaks to The Apprentice, saying she made a promise. The Apprentice replies by saying that she is Sith no longer. She tries to escape, and her Master and the droid follow her suit. She arrives at the temple, wounded. E2 kills one of the droids, and The Apprentice kills another. However, the master disables E2 as he enters the temple.
Inside, The Master taunts The Apprentice, saying that there is only one way this ends, which is killing him. The Master is referencing the Rule of Two, which says that at any point, there can only be two Sith, a master and an apprentice, with the apprentice having to kill their master in the end. The Apprentice learns that it is futile to try to cover the darkness; both darkness and light live inside of her. She fights The Master and kills him but declares that she has found her own way. As she and E2 leave the planet, The Apprentice declares she is now the Master of her own fate.
