    I prefer that Poe is the better pilot.

    That very important question, who's the better pilot, Hera or Poe?
    In other words, who's the second best pilot- behind Wedge...

  • Grand Admiral Thrawn

    A few weeks hmm? Yeah, try 3 months.

    I think if these x wings were downgraded T-60s,then they should be called T-55 Proto X wong

    It was obvious the battle of lothal would fail. Battlefront: Del said he wants to see lothal but he wanted to see it FREE. Rouge one: Scariff meant to be the rebellions first major victory

      No they're half done S4 but they're doing a "mid-season break" for literally no reason but to draw out the show so they make more money.

    God the X-Wing is a beautiful plane. The turning, spinning, and unfolding of the wings really make it stand out compared to the Empire.
    It makes you feel like it’s a plane that could fly here and now but it kind of isn’t.

    Star wars question: if the new republic fleet survived the destruction of hosnian prime, would it support the resistance in the assault on starkiller base or come support the resistance during the evacuation of d'qar??? I like to hear your opinion.

    I like that this video shows us the Pablo Hidalgo sometimes just stands there as a prop

  • Andrew Gilbertson

    Seeing the X-wings was awesome... a very thrilling moment when they lock S-foils, and seeing them dogfight was fantastic! It's all I've really wanted out of Star Wars since 1999. As Dave said, I've been waiting for that- and it was well worth the wait... and part of a FANTASTIC episode.
    But why are the X-wings stuck with the little pew-pew-pew laser sounds from the prequels (akin to Slave I)? I understood using those for the Ghost, even for the Blade-wing, since we never really heard it fire onscreen... but X-wings from A New Hope have that wonderful blapp-blapp-blapp laser sound, like their canons are really spitting those bolts of energy out, that is instantly familiar to anyone who's played the X-wing games. I really hope that if they make a Rebels reappearance, the sound effects will be fixed.

    Season 4 is VERY good - can't wait to see more! :D

    • MonkeyZorr
      MonkeyZorr Year ago +2

      Seasons 1 - 3 were better, this feels so rushed

  • Neverhoodian
    Neverhoodian Year ago

    Best pilot? Hmmm, that's a tough one. Wedge Antilles, Soontir Fel, Keyan Farlander, Maarek Stele, Ace Azzameen, Rookie One, Corran Horn...there's a wealth of choices, after all. I hope the current canon produces a similar stable of such pilots. Hera and Poe are good starts, but I want more space combat (and let's get some truly capable and loyal Imperial aces while we're at it).
    I guess the X-Wing origins story is still a mystery. Well unless it's stated otherwise I'm just going to stick to the "Legends" explanation that the Incom design team defected and told the Rebels where to steal the prototypes.

    Based on just that one scene on Takodana, Poe seems like a way better pilot

  • Matthew Fechter

    In the second part of the fourth season of the series, the Rebels will show us that Ezra and Sabine as they kiss, as Hera and kanan?

  • Bullestick
    Bullestick Year ago

    Hera may be a good pilot but she is terrible squadron commander think about the first time we see her her and her squadron are clash landing after fighting the empire and unless they're a teenager or in the original trilogy all of her pilots almost always get shot down

    Good episode. Felt very classic in terms of "Star Wars writing." Keep up this mature and serious writing guys (just don't be as edgy as TCW).

    These X-Wings seem WEAKER than the later versions. I was honestly disappointed in them.

  • The Redstone Sith

    Hera is better than rook, and the white lothwolf is so awesome.

  • Fox Walker
    Fox Walker Year ago

    Probably one of my top 3 episodes for the entire series. The space battle was absolutely epic, and the focus on Hera (my favorite character) made it that much better!

  • Dakaree Kondo-Banks

    This season been LIT🔥🔥🔥 so far!!!!

    This show should have been finished before the holidays.
    All it is disney trying to squeeze every cent they can get from someone who pays for Disney XD.

    Mart addresses Hera as General, but Thrawn still calls her Captain. Did Hera get promoted already?

  • Gowshik Ganesan

    Cool Episode.I have heard Kannan's real name is Kaleb Dume .That is why the Loth-Wolf said it.

  • Damien Hailey

    Okay the inevitable question that's probably been asked already...
    Most people wanted, or expected, us to see the X-Wings get acquired in the series, much like the Y- and B-Wings were. But we went from all Y-wings in "In the Name of the Rebellion" to suddenly having X-wings here. Is the "Introduction" of the X-Wings already earmarked for another work?

    So other than the fact that X-Wings were meant to replace ARC-170's. How did the Rebellion get them? other than the fact they stole them, most likely.

  • Eric Brown

    Would love to see more B-Wings before Rebels ends.

    Well we know Hera survives because of Rogue One and the Forces of Destiny cartoon, so I felt no tension watching her get captured. My hope is that her capture is a catalyst that will lead to better things in the story.

    Ok everyone prove me wrong please!!!!
    I usually watch with the subtitles on. And I watch Rebels on Amazon. The Loth Wolf says "Dume", right? Right. In this episode The wolf said "Doom".

    How can the x-wings fire all their lasers at the same time? If they can fire without opening the s-foils, why do they open their s-foil So?

  • SWLoreNerd55
    SWLoreNerd55 Year ago +2

    Was that the last season episode? I didn't see ahsoka, or Vader or Palpatine, or perhaps the sith holocron in my theory view, Darth Traya.
