Rewatched the ending - Ahsoka is standing at the mouth of a cave right after we see Vader, so she's still alive at this point.

If you don't die by falling into a bottomless pit after being cut in half...then no one is dead.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Rewatched the ending - Ahsoka is standing at the mouth of a cave right after we see Vader, so she's still alive at this point.

Just watched the episode again.  I think the fate of Ahsoka is rather ambiguous at the moment.  We see her from afar in the mouth of the cave and then she disappears...someone mentioned she descends or it could be she collapses. It's like she falls to her knees and then all the way flat.  To me, just from Ezra and the Ghost's crews emotions along with the soundtrack, it seems like a hero's sacrifice.

I guess we'll find out in the next season what happened.  If Maul can survive, anyone can.

She seems to walk into a tunnel entrance - did you see her fall versus walk after the owl scene?  I think the rest of the Rebels think she is dead given the base exploded with her in it, which really should have been the death of both her and Vader.  ::)

She either descends into darkness of the temple or falls to her knees and then face plants it.  She's too small in the scene to know for certain, but I watched that part a couple times and her movements are "jerky" not smooth in motion... So I guess steps (which we can't see) or death scene, or maybe simply tired? 

But yeah, they should be dead in that explosion.  Maybe both she and Vader used all their Force powers to create a shield?

I thought we were seeing a Force ghost of her disappear.

I would hope that if she died that it would have been obvious and there could be some more meaning behind her death.  e.g. she sacrificed herself for Kanan and Ezra, and then when she dies she appears as a force ghost or something.

I only watched it once, but as far as the "explosion of the temple" went - I thought it was more like an electromagnetic pulse, or something that maybe wasn't super destructive.  As others have said, if Maul can survive everything he has, then Ahsoka can survive a temple explosion.

Narratively she is 'dead' to the Rebels cast - if she were literally dead, there would be a body, and as others have stated, dying is a hard thing to do for some of these people. The door has been left wide open - wide enough for her to walk through, which she did - for her to return later down the line. Fiolini has mentioned in a few interviews her story at least in relation to the Rebels series is over, but he's already thought ahead to the future. The ambiguity I suspect is to create some mystery around her next appearance (movies?), and to preserve some of Vader's mystique. We get the fabled fight between master and apprentice that people have forecasted for years as her downfall and we get at least the impression of her not walking away, though, again, she literally walks away.
