The Acolyte Creator Says There’s More To Find Out On The Twins Origin

The Acolyte showrunner Leslye Headland responds to views saying the show is all about lesbian Witches. Let's see what was said!

Star Wars: The Acolyte creator Leslye Headland says there’s till more to find out on the Twins mysterious origins. Episode 3, which was not very well received I have to say, and that’s an understatement, left us with a tease. We are told, without having it fully explained that the Twins were carried by one woman of the Witch’s Coven but ‘created’ by Mother Anesiya.

There are of course some fans declaring this canon busting. However, as Kyle Malone and I pointed out in our The Cantina Review of the episode, it doesn’t really break any canon. There are still some fans out there who mistakenly believe that Anakin was created by the Sith, ether Palpatine or his Master Plagueis before him. All thanks to a comic book, which even the writer of has explained is not what really happened.

If we go to the old Plagueis Legend books which are no longer canon, there was an alternative explanation. Those books suggested that Anakin was born of the Force with no input from the Sith. However, that the Sith’s dark experimentations being conducted by Plagueis could have caused the Force to produce Anakin as a consequence.

Given that The Acolyte is set probably before Plagueis was the Sith Master, there could be some connection. What if the Sith themselves aided the Witches in this experiment? What if these experiments are the basis for the skills Plagueis goes on to perfect? That’s also assuming Palpatine wasn’t just outright lying through his teeth to sway Anakin to his side. That cannot be ruled out.

Anyway, enough about that, here is what Leslye Headland said about that when she spoke to EW recently;

“If you keep watching the show, we do talk about that and explore that. I would say there isn’t one answer to it. Some characters believe certain things, and other characters believe other things in terms of what she means by that. So you’re going to have to watch and decide which side of that argument you’re on.”

Headland also essentially confirmed that we are intentionally seeing the events of Episode 3 from only a certain point of view. It seems certain we will eventually see those events from another point of view as the series goes on.

However, that doesn’t really help with the fact Episode 3 was dull, too long and clunky. It also had some comical chanting, that felt like it belonged in the Scooby Doo movie. Not hating The Acolyte as much as some of my colleagues so far. However I’m also not particularly enjoying it either. Sigh.

What do you think of her comments as The Acolyte creator Leslye Headland says there’s till more to find out on the Twins mysterious origins? Thoughts below as usual.
