    Oh my god. I am officially getting super annoyed with Pablo. It was literally said in the *canon* book “Journey Through Space” that the temple was created by Massassi that were enslaved by ancient Sith. But NOOOO, Pablo will always take the simplest route and attempt to rewrite canon just so that he doesn’t have to keep a working knowledge of what is said in these guidebooks.
    The new canon got off to a TERRIFIC start in continuity, but this CHUMP will single handedly tear it down!

    Hmm...anyone else get a Legends vibe from the Mining Guild's Crawler? It looks---and acts similarly---to the Emperor's World Devastators from the DARK EMPIRE comic series.
    The Devastators, though, had a dual function: strip-mining the planet, while the materials were converted quickly into droid-piloted TIE fighters and other ships.

    I wish they made a more mature show, I mean they can't even kill stormtroopers on a regular basis. They shouldn't mostly stun or slash the blasters. I know they sometimes show characters die but they pretend they don't.

      It on disny and that is something you are going to need to accept for now, until they have a show on a more mature network/platform.

    Also, I think that clip at the end emphasizes one of the major differences between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire, in terms of space battles: The Empire puts greater emphasis on capital ships, while the Rebellion puts greater emphasis on individual fighters/interceptors/bombers. Just play the Empire At War games and you'll see what I mean. When I'm playing as the Alliance, I always make sure to have at least four to five or six squadrons of EACH fighter (X-Wings, A-Wings, Y-Wings, and B-Wings in the Forces Of Corruption Expansion) in every fleet I've built (X-Wings and A-Wings come in groups of five, while Y-Wings and B-Wings come in groups of three).

      It's not like they obliterated her character from the face of the earth. You'll always have the old EU stories of her.

    • Kevin Norwood

      TheXvidr Blue Well, it doesn't change the fact that Mara Jade is the character that I want made canon again more than any other, ESPECIALLY after her legacy was insulted by that rip-off from LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (Naare).

  • Grand Admiral Thrawn

    These episodes were good; not great, but not meh. You could definitely predict where the plot was going, but certain characters did provide certain surprises. The second episode is a lot like previous plot lines: the Rebels need something, encounter the Empire which conveniently has exactly what they need, they sneak in, sneaking doesn't work, fight breaks out, Rebels win, and they get what they needed. Here they just replaced "Empire" with "Mining Guild." Kind-of like last season with that one purgill episode.
    Rukh's look here is very different from what it was before with the only distinguishing similarity being a heavy brow, sense of smell, and his lesser stature. While the voice made him intimidating (I was not expecting that from Warwick Davis, but that could be explained with some serious modification), I don't think it was the right fit. It pulled me out of the scene whenever he spoke. When you think of beings that are smaller that your average human, they tend to have smaller and quieter voices. Not deep baritone. Those are usually used for larger beings.
    I don't get it. Suddenly, there's natural hyperspace wormholes on planets that wolves and people can just pass through without protection. And the wolves are bonded to the planet through the Force somehow and can make themselves appear and disappear whenever they want. Like, there were artificial gateways that were made by ancient beings that could teleport from planet to planet but they weren't hyperspace related. They were done using the Force. The monolith in TCW that led to the planet of Mortis was one such gateway.
    The Mining Guild ore crawler looks like a scaled down World Devastator. I'm surprised that we're only just learning about them now and not, say, in the _Thrawn_ novel. And the fight between Zeb and the Trandoshan? I mean, should this even have been a struggle? Zeb had been an experienced melee fighter since before he joined the Rebels crew as he was part of the Lasat Royal Guard. The Trandoshan is a guard on board a very confined ship and has dealt with slaves. Is there some sort of backstory to him where he works out while not on the job or was he involved in fighting before working for the Mining Guild?
    Hera's speech shouldn't even have been necessary. For one, these are experienced senators and leaders whose lifetime is surrounded by making speeches. A speech isn't going to be the thing that will bring these people together for a military action. I mean, look at Rogue One.
    "Well, that was a waste of time for the Imperials." You know, if you shortened that sentenced by one or two prepositions, you would get a double meaning there.

  • VanishEclipse4867

    So next episode Rebel Assault, six X-Wings and four Y-Wings. You guys know the drill, aim for the domes on top of the command structures of the Star Destroyers, make the force of 10 fighters feel like the force of a 1000 of those. (Wait is that what Cassian said?)

  • VanishEclipse4867

    Something more sinister going on in Lothal than just the TIE-Defender elite and Protocol 13 being issued as in the evacuation of a planet. There must be a massive supply of Kyber crystals in the depths of Lothal which is used to fuel the Death Star's Death Ray and the evacuation protocol is used if they are going to raise hell on that planet knowing the Empire but the Death Star's first victim was Jed'ha.

    I was always under the impression that Hera and Kanan were in a relationship all the way back at the beginning of the series. She calls him "love" the first time she ever talks to him in the series. Then they met Ezra, and Kanan had to back off from Hera to be a Jedi again, or she backed off to be more active in the Rebellion.
    Oh, and seeing Pablo charging his phone off a Gonk droid was just delightful.

    Does anyone have any theories for the Loth-wolves’ identities (unless they’re just force-sensitive creatures). My guesses are Ashoka or Depa Billaba (Kanan’s former master, for those who don’t remember). I hear people saying that Ashoka is a wolf, which is actually a good assumption because Dave said that he always has wanted Ashoka to ride a wolf. I feel like the Depa Billaba theory is also good because the wolf seemed very connected to Kanan and even knew his real name.

    Don't you dare kill off Kanan. Don't do it. You've got us high up on him and Hera finally pursuing a relationship, and I want to see that evolve. And to all you folks who say he has to die... screw you. It's pure laziness to go the route of convenience. Find another way. I know you can.

    That Crawler Commanders episode continued the (so far) hugely irritating and disappointing episodes of this final Rebels season. It feels like we have gone back to before Ezra played with the Holocron and actually got dangerous (and more "Jedi - like") than he's ever been. Now it's back to slapstick comedy and general ineptitude. Really, none of them could keep the lizard pilot keep quiet and NOT hit an alarm. And what's with the double episodes. These folks just seem to want it over and finished as quickly as possible.

  • marvin nanno
    marvin nanno Year ago

    7:35 yeah it is Canon. According to Canon the sith did invade yavin IV and enslave the massassi. However if Pablo doesn't even know this then that rules out any possibility of seeing anything related to the ancient sith on yavin in rebels which sucks.

    • marvin nanno
      marvin nanno Year ago

      Neverhoodian someone has already written a story about it that is canon I wouldn't say anything otherwise. According to journey through space ( the 2015 one) the sith did Invade yavin and enslaved the massassi. So the sith do have a history in yavin according to canon.

    • Neverhoodian
      Neverhoodian Year ago

      Oh trust me, Pablo probably knows more about Star Wars than 98% of all fans. What he meant was that the backstory for the temples only pertains to the old EU. We won't know if the temples on Yavin IV are Massassi in origin or not in the current canon until someone writes a story that addresses it.
