Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 8

“Crawler Commanders” Star Wars Rebels returns to a more traditional story for this show when the Lothal based team infiltrate a Mining Guild Crawler to get a message to Hera. What we have here is essentially another heist episode. As I’ve said before this is a common episode type for Star Wars Rebels probably because it…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 7

“Kindred” Star Wars Rebels continues to explore the mysteries of Lothal as the Empire closes in on the Ghost Crew. The previous episode set up that there was something of cosmic importance at play that connects the characters in some unknowable way. This kind of destiny fuelled storyline is something that Star Wars is well…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 6

“”Flight of the Defender” Star Wars Rebels continues the return to Lothal with an information gathering mission on an upgraded TIE Defender that doesn’t go as planned. Heist episodes are fairly common on this show. They work well enough because they allow the characters to have a defined role and play to their strengths in…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 5

“The Occupation” Star Wars Rebels returns to Lothal to let Ezra attempt to save his home and complete the arc started last season. Lothal has been an important part of this show since it began. It’s Ezra’s home, it served as a base of operations of sorts for the team and ultimately it’s the place…

“In the Name of the Rebellion Part 2” Star Wars Rebels follows on from the previous episode and continues exploring Saw Gerrera’s more extreme tactics against the Empire. The previous episode dealt with Saw’s tactics in opposition to Mon Mothma’s tactics which is interesting to a point but lacks in any practical examples. This episode…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 16

“Legacy of Mandalore” Star Wars Rebels takes us to Mandalore this week to finish off the two-part story of Sabine taking up the Darksaber, promising a lot right from the outset. The Mandalorians are always going to be one of the coolest people in the Star Wars background, which will obviously draw our attention, but…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 15

“Trails of the DarkSaber” Star Wars Rebels returns to the Mandalorian story when Sabine is encouraged to use the recently found Darksaber to unite her people.

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 14

“Warhead” Star Wars Rebels focuses on Zeb and the droids as an Imperial Infiltrator Droid stumbles onto the Rebel base creating the potential for the base to be discovered by the Empire.

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 13

“Ghosts of Geonosis Part 2” Star Wars Rebels continues its return from hiatus with the Ghost crew at odds with Saw Gerrera over how to deal with the surviving Geonosian.
