Star Wars Rebels Catch-All

Yeah, I found those two options, and neither is appealing. I guess I'll keep waiting.

This week's episode...

Spoiler:

I think they handled pre-A New Hope Leia well. Makes Vader's line about her not being on a mercy mission this time sound like she ran that excuse into the ground. Also this week we got another ship from the video games of the Legends canon, kind of: the Hammerhead-class corvettes Leia brought to Lothal look like dead ringers for the Republic ships from KOTOR.

They streamed all the episode for free on May the 4th day last year. It's long ways away but maybe they'll do the same this year. I'm in the same boat as you. I want to watch it but have missed most of the season. I put a little reminder in my phone to check it on May 4th

I liked this week's episode. I was afraid that it was going to be fan service but it turned out to be a little deeper than that.

Spoiler:

My only problem is Kanan showing that he was a Jedi/force user in front of Leia. Personally I think Kanan bites it before ep4 but if not then why isn't Leia looking for him instead of Kenobi (who she has only heard stories about?

Yeah I didn't like

Spoiler:

both of them revealing their powers

But as far as Leia's episode IV motivations. "You served my father in the clone wars" is pretty spelled out. And from what we saw in Episode III, Obi Wan trusted Bail Organa enough to trust him with Leia. Seems like he probably trusted Bail with his own location as well, hence her running to Tatooine in the first place.

It's not quite as bad as Rey growing up hearing Jedi stories. Bail and Obi Wan worked together and knew each other.

Most likely because they were near Tatooine when they were being attacked. Plot device and all. How would she send the droids anywhere but there?

Also, anyway, who really cares what happens in 4? Kanan could just be on the other side of the galaxy or somethin! They are trying to fit new stories into the framework so I'm fine if some of the framework has to flex to allow it!

I heard some conjecture that eventually Kanan and Ezra make their way to Alderaan, and Bail sends for Obi-Wan so he can finish their training. That would certainly tie everything into a nice bow, but wouldn't really be a satisfying end to those two characters.

I always thought she was looking for Ben and that is why they were there. It is also a little ways between knowing someone in person and hearing about one of dad's old friends that you never met (and had not talked to dad in a while).

You know, in spite of the fact that all the old Star Wars EU is now non-canon, Rebels does enjoy smuggling some of that into the new continuity. Like with Concord Dawn.

Err...I hope my last comment was just moderated (came off as too angry? I dunno) and I didn't accidentally post it in the wrong thread. Just warning people not to buy the season pass for this right now. It only comes with half of season 2, the rest is ridiculously split into "season 3."

Where, amazon?

Everywhere, unfortunately. iTunes, Google Play, you name it.

Definitely a one off ep!

Was I the only one getting a Battlestar Galactica vibe from this episode's soundtrack?

Just finished all 6 seasons of The Clone Wars, starting into this.

Looking forward to catching up.

Thought the carrier from tonight's episode looked familiar? It was.

I thought this was another solid episode. I'm really loving how we are seeing the characters evolve (which didn't happen with most characters In "Clone Wars").

Also great is that it looks like they are keeping the fleet consistent so we should see the carrier in the background for a while.

Oh snap! Did not realize that Numa, one of Cham's warriors was the Numa that Clone Troopers rescued in the Clone Wars series! Nice call back!

I didn't put it together either until reading it after watching the episode. Awesome little cameo

You can buy them on Amazon, iTunes, etc., but they nickel and dime you. The first two episodes of both seasons are separate purchases, and season 2 is split into two sub-seasons that each cost as much as season 1, but are several episodes shorter.

Tonight's episode...

Spoiler:

...kind of a nice little homage to Enemy Mine by pairing Zeb and Kallus on the moon of Genosis. And there's a bit of a tie-in with the Darth Vader comics from Marvel where they first said the Empire exterminated all Genosians, perhaps to cover up the existence of a teensy-tiny construction project that first got starter in planetary orbit. You know, something about the size of a moon...

Yeah a nice Enemy Mine episode.

This version of Yoda's freaking me the hell out:

Finally got caught up, was about 4 episodes behind.

Space Whales! Maybe good guy Agent Kallus? Malachor V! Yoda looks...young?

I really love all the tie ins to the current 'canon' properties and I also love that they're slowly bringing 'Legacy' content in. Makes the show all the more awesome.

Malachor (not sure if there's a 100% connection to KOTOR) was mentioned in The Clone Wars and a tie-in book to The Force Awakens:

Spoiler:

Malachor was an epithet used by a couple character in TCW and according to The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary, something called the Great Scourge of Malachor happened there and that was where the crossguard lightsaber wielded by Kylo Ren was first designed.

Wow.

Almost all the living Jedi/Sith in the galaxy in one episode.

And I've been wondering...

Spoiler:

...if the Grand Inquisitor was a Temple Guard, were the other two we've seen also them? I mean, Vader attacked the temple during Order 66 and if the Grand Inquisitor survived to serve him, does that mean the Fifth Brother, Seventh Sister and all in between also turned to the dark side?

To quote an oft used line in this franchise: "Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
