Wow! That was something, wasn’t it? It’s as if Christmas came early and the folks at Lucasfilm decided to give us all of our presents at once. This episode of Star Wars Rebels was stuffed to the gills with the kind of reveals and big character moments that feel specifically designed to send us dorks at home running to the internet to write some exuberant tweet in all caps with an irresponsible amount of exclamation points. Because of that, it’d be really easy for me to just spend a thousand or so words geeking out like this was some kind of message board, but I’m here to review the episode, so I’ll try to keep the geeking out within sensible limits. That being said, holy cow!
This week, as the rebels continue their search for a base of operations, they find that they’re cut off at every turn by the Inquisitors. As Kanan acknowledges, it doesn’t do much good trying to establish a secret base if Ms. Murder and Tall-Dark-and-Ugly keep showing up to crash the party. Ezra, Kanan, and Ahsoka resolve that the only way to solve this problem is by taking the fight to the Inquisitors. To do that, they’re going to need guidance from Master Yoda, so it’s off to Lothal to visit the Jedi temple where Kanan and Ezra spoke with the Jedi Master back in Season One.
