Reeling from a devastating loss, the Ghost crew rallies together to find a new purpose and resolve.
Man, this is hard to type. Kanan's gone.
Speaking as someone who's been through the grieving process when it comes to losing a close family member, this episode was beautifully done. The anger, the confusion, the feeling of being completely lost and alone in the world... Well done, guys. Well done.
I didn't really have any real feelings towards Pryce other than the usual villain dislike. Now? BLOW HER SHABLA SHEBS TO MUSTAFAR AND BACK BECAUSE SHE KILLED KANAN!!!!!!!
I know there's going to be some complainers over the whole 'Sabine painting Rukh' thing and I so don't care. We just lost Kanan. I seriously needed that laugh.
Soooo... Is Dume a Force manifestation of Kanan, or are we dealing with more weirdness? And was I the only one that noticed that Imperial officer reporting to Pryce in the opening was Sam Witwer? Was this a just-for-the-giggles thing, or could it be a subtle sign that he came in to do voice work for a Force vision of Maul or something like that? With the Lothal temple involved, I wouldn't rule that last one out...
Well, I was right we'd be returning to the Lothal Temple again. And perhaps this is where Ezra might run into a vision of the Emperor... I kind of doubt he'd come in the flesh.
I dunno, that might be season finale material, but we're so close to it I guess it doesn't matter.
If Pryce defects, I'll be really ticked. Tua was just a coward and Kallus had genuine reasons. Pryce is just a power-hungry scavenger, constantly looking for the next powerful person to latch onto in order to further her own career. Thrawn isn't the vindictive type, but I hope he's got some sort of retribution in store for her if the rebellion doesn't do anything with her first.
Whatever mission takes them back into the Imperial base on Lothal, please let someone retrieve Kanan's lightsaber... I love Thrawn as a villain, but no one but the Ghost crew deserves to keep that lightsaber after everything that's happened. I don't want to see it end up in Thrawn's collection like the Kalikori did last season...
It was weird seeing Chopper all quiet and reverent like that. That more than anything really drove home Kanan's death for me. When he was comforting Hera, I legit started tearing up. One nice thing about pairing these episodes together is that this was both the characters' and the audience's chance to cope before moving on. This helped everyone realize the true cost of war, and why this war is worth fighting.
