    Finally, we've made it: to Malachor, to the Rebels season 2 finale, to the face-to-face showdown between... well... That's the thing, isn't it. If this had only been a faceoff between Kanan, Ezra, Ahsoka and the Inquisitors who have been pursuing them all season, it would've been a pretty great season finale. But it's more than that, much, much more.

    87: Shroud of Darkness, The Forgotten Droid, and The Mystery of Chopper Base (Rebels 33 - 35)

    As Rebels begins its lead up to the second season finale, it's got some important work to do. First, it has to give its two Jedi protagonists (and their not-quite-a-Jedi-anymore friend) some direction and confidence. Then it has to sell the idea that they have to confront the Inquisitors directly or risk inevitably leading them (and their Dark Lord of the Sith master) to the Rebel forces. Finally, it has to tease the idea that maybe a deep darkness exists in the world--and maybe Ezra is getting a little too close to it.
    Also Chopper has to meet his new husband.

    86: The Call, Homecoming, & The Honorable Ones

    As we inch towards the end Rebels Season 2, some things are becoming clearer and clearer. First, Ezra's whole animal empathy thing is going to keep happening. Second, we're definitely going to get some 'different rebel cells have different goals' stories as the series continues. And third... they are definitely, absolutely going to try to redeem Kallus. It's a bold strategy. Let's see how it plays out.

    85: A Princess on Lothal, The Protector of the Concord Dawn, & Legends of the Lasat (Rebels 27 - 29)

    As we return from the midseason finale, we get a trio of episodes that represent the three major emerging categories of Star Wars Rebels stories so far. One is a story driven by a cameo from the larger Star Wars universe. Another is a big swing at some brand new worldbuilding and an exploration into tone and style that is totally brand new for the show. And the third is, unfortunately (and of course), a lackluster Sabine episode that doesn't even have the decency to give her credit for her own good ideas. Ah well, maybe next time!

    84: Stealth Strike, The Future of the Force, & Legacy (Rebels 24 - 26)

    Folks, we did it. After a middling pair of episodes last time and with what looked like a connected pair of stories coming up, we decided to call an audible and increase our episode count to three!
    So, today, join us on a journey across the galaxy: First into an experimental imperial weapon with its origin in the EU glory days of old, then on a planetary hunt for force-sensitive babies, and finally a return to Lothal where a troubled Ezra Bridger finally gets some answers about his family.

    83: Wings of the Master and Blood Sisters (Rebels 22 - 23)

    After Season 2's strong start, the crew of the Ghost is finally settling into a lower key rhythm, which has both ups and its down. On the plus side this week, we get a loving look at the B-Wing (an all time great Star Wars ship design) and some more Sabine and Hera backstory! On the other... well, that backstory ain't all that great, and we're really feeling to limits of these one-off episodes.

Natalie Watson is me

episode 82: trying to describe a specific tiktok but recast with star wars characters but not being able to remember a single word from the tiktok but knowing that it’s gonna be a hilarious joke if you can find the right video. i was crying laughing by the end and let’s just say that’s not an uncommon occurrence with this show. y’all are the best

Why even do the show?

Why make a podcast about Star Wars when some of the hosts haven’t even seen all the films or shows and the others have only seen them once or twice in their lifetime, and from what I’ve heard don’t seem to like anything about Star Wars and complain about every little thing??? But sure, slap “Star Wars” on your podcast to get all those cheap clicks…
