Naval captains like Hera outrank army captains like Rex (at least, that's how it works in the US army, and in Legends' GAR). Since Ezra's a lieutenant commander and not a full one, I assume that means Hera still outranks Ezra.
Okay. I'm a diehard Thrawn Trilogy fan. I love pretty much every single Star Wars book written by Timothy Zahn, particularly anything with Thrawn or Mara Jade. So I have only two words to say about Star Wars Rebels' adaptation of the Thrawn character.
HE'S PERFECT!!!!!! Oh my gosh, it's like they opened Heir to the Empire, reached in, magically pulled him out, and just stuck him into their script. I've been jumping up and down like either a five-year-old girl or a psycho squealing with delight ever since I watched Steps into Shadow.
And SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS the Y-wings are going to General Dodonna! Oh my gosh, WE JUST SAW THE Y-WINGS FROM A NEW HOPE!!! I knew Wedge was a signel that we were really going to start diving into the ANH connections, but one right out of the gate? AMAZING!
And so, in closing... THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST SEASON EVER! :) :) :) :) :)
The new character designs, too. Ezra has a hair-cut, Kanan's got some facial hair, and Sabine got a new hair color and it's longer. To be honest, I like Ezra with his normal hair from seasons 1 and 2. XD
I really liked Steps Into Shadow I can't wait for more Thrawn this was his first episode he appeared in and he's already one hundred steps in front of everbody. Also I can't wait for more Bendu' I want to know if he's going to be a villian or hero or maybe even neither. It was a really awesome episode :)
Dunno about you all, But MY favorite part was when Ezra made the walker...'walk' off the platform, and his tone of voice when sabne asks him when Kanan taught him that.
Anyone else notice the emphasis there?
Yeah... that face he makes right after he makes the pilot commit suicide... it gave me chills. Then ON TOP of that, (what u mentioned) this exchange, "When did Kanan teach you that?"
AAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! (Excuse me while I go freak out in a corner)
The first time I watched it, I knew Ezra was training with the Sith Holocron. The last shot of Twilight of the Apprentice gave that away. But still, the exchange with Sabine and Ezra still makes you think, "If Kanan didn't teach him, who did?"
Well, thats how I felt. I knew it was the holocron, but I seemed to forget at that moment. I seemed to forget how Ezra obtained this power, even though I knew.
And yes, the face Ezra makes... oh my gosh. That's all I have to say! It seems like he's glad he did it, but he's angry about it too. Is there a better way to word what I just said? I don't know, and I don't really care.
