The recently released Star Wars: The Acolyte Episode 7, titled Choice, finally revealed what happened to Mother Aniseya (Jodie Turner-Smith) and her coven of witches on Brendok. In a big reveal, Mae (Amandla Stenberg) had nothing to do with her mother and her coven’s death despite the assumption of many. But while all the witches seem to have met their demise, Mother Koril (Margarita Levieva) appears to have escaped and saved herself. As her lifeless body is not seen, it seemingly hints that she’s the mysterious Sith Master of Qimir (Manny Jacinto) with the hate she has for the Jedi.

The Acolyte Episode 7 returned to Brendok to reveal what transpired on the planet that led to the death of Mother Aniseya and the witches. As it turned out, despite Indara (Carrie-Anne Moss) telling Sol (Lee Jung-jae) that the Council refused to bring the twins to Coruscant or separate them from their coven, Sol wanted to take the kids after deeming the coven “dangerous.” His desire even heightened when he learned of their high M-counts, following Torbin (Dean-Charles Chapman), who made his way to the fortress to use the kids as proof of the existence of vergence on a once-desolated Brendok.

Sadly, their intrusion led to a fight against the witches, with Sol killing Aniseya with his lightsaber after she summoned her Force magic to protect Mae, mistaking it as an attack. Koril started to attack Sol and Torbin, but she later transformed into a shadow, while the witches possessed Kelnacca (Joonas Suotamo), who faced his fellow Jedi in a big fight. Indara came at the right time when Kelnacca was about to kill Sol and free him from the witches’ possession, resulting in their total wipeout. But while all the women seemed to have died inside the fortress, Koril wasn’t seen.

Fans Assume Koril is Qimir’s Sith Master in Star Wars: The Acolyte

With Koril’s absence among the dead bodies of the witches and her disappearance amid the fight, many assume that she’s still alive. Fans take to X their theories about Koril being alive and her possible connection to Qimir with their common hate toward the Jedi.

X user @teptepjoy suggests that Koril is not dead and is behind everything happening against the Jedi. They even assume that the witch and Qimir have a connection, considering they have a common enemy.

User @MasterTainment adds that Qimir is probably Koril’s acolyte and uses the way the former kills Jecki (Dafne Keen) in a triangular stab, allegedly representing the triangle theme present throughout Aniseya’s coven, as proof. They even assume that Qimir is Koril’s son.

User @jenastarkiller proposes that Koril tampers with the arts of the Sith after escaping Brendok and becomes Qimir’s Sith Master.


Is Mother Koril Qimir’s Sith Master in Star Wars: The Acolyte?

Though it remains to be seen who Qimir’s real Sith Master is, fans now assume it is possibly Koril. After the tragic event on Brendok, Koril has all the reasons to hate the Jedi, which may have influenced her to turn to the dark side. There’s a mystery surrounding this character after Episode 3, Destiny revealed that she brought Mae and Osha to the world and carried them while Aniseya “created them.”

It’s also a riddle of how Qimir learns of everything that has happened on Brendok despite his absence. Hence, someone with full knowledge of that event may have told everything to Qimir, and all points lead to Koril. Though some say Darth Plagueis is probably Qimir’s Sith Master, it seems Koril has a part to play in The Stranger’s hate for the Jedi.

With only one episode left, it remains to be seen how The Acolyte will solve all the mysteries it has introduced. Aside from Qimir’s origins, it’s expected to reveal Koril's fate after she seems to have escaped Brendok.

The Acolyte Episodes 1 to 7 are available on Disney+, while the final Episode 8 is set to release on Tuesday, July 16.
