I think it's at least possible she'll survive the purge, but there needs to be an act that drives Anakin right over the edge. The straw for the camel's back.
The problem with the show is that Ahsoka is having a very positive effect on Anakin. She's making him more sensitive, more willing to sacrifice of himself for others.
basically, her presence in his life takes him 180 degrees away from the course of a man who can turn to the dark side in five minutes.
if she dies in the war...or appears to die, that will be yet another woman in his life he couldn't save. The horrors of the war don't seem to have had any sort of impact on his state of mind, so it's got to be a personal tragedy. Something that keeps him from being able to let go of personal attachments.
So, Snips has to die so that Anakin can be turned. So that he can be vulnerable to his fears about Padme. She has to die so that his state of mind can be sufficiently weakened.
Or, at least, she has to seem to die.
Yeah, I'm thinking of calling Lucas tomorrow. I have a great idea for a cartoon. It revolves around the adventures of the Nazi party. But the stories will all take place from a couple of years before
they start killing Jews. So naturally, it'll be cool for kids to watch it and root for them.
