    PART I: In final preparations for their attack on Lothal, Phoenix Squadron's plans are disrupted when Grand Admiral Thrawn discovers their location.

    PART II: Trapped on Atollon with the rebel base under siege, Hera and Kanan fight to keep the squadron alive, as Ezra attempts to rally help from an unexpected source.


    What did everyone think of the final episode of the third season of Star Wars Rebels?

    • I'm so glad Kallus survived and has begun a full fledge rebel. I'm also sad Sato sacrificed himself.

        Loading editor
    • I was sad that Jun Sato died, as well as the destruction of Phoenix home, I am glad that konstantine died, he had his time to shine in season two. Ps: thank you for unblocking me, I promise to never add anything without permission.

    • What about Ahsoka?

        Loading editor
    • This should go without saying, but massive spoilers follow (in this post and on here in general):

      I had a feeling that Sato would die, especially by being so unwilling to abandon his command ship a second time. I'm glad he was at least able to make something of his defeat this time, though it cost him his life. And taking out Konstantine in doing so? Bonus points. :P

      I also figured about a third of the way through that the Bendu would be their unexpected source of help. Was hoping that wouldn't be the case, though I like how they handled it. By the end, Thrawn did indeed capture the Rebels, successfully too were it not for Bendu's interference. That's about the only way they could have hoped to escape Thrawn, and even then, Bendu didn't take sides. He was evicting all outsiders from his planet, Rebel and Imperial alike. Thrawn couldn't have accounted for that, giving Hera, Kanan and the others a chance to escape.

      All in all, very well-done. This episode kept moving, had a lot of great battle sequences and really gave the Empire a chance to shine for a change. Hoping to see more of this tone in Season 4.

    • Dang, man-there was so much in this episode. Sato's sacrifice was moving, and all the sadder when you consider that Mart is now bereft of his last living relative; not gonna lie though, I was happy as could be that he took Konstantine down with him. Losing Phoenix Home was pretty sad too-I liked that ship, but it really fit with the battle: the only real victory the Rebels achieved was that a good number of them survived, though they lost a good chunk of their fleet, Chopper Base, and a solid chunk of personnel in the process.

      The Bendu's intervention was frankly terrifying-he may be the one in the middle, but he definitely edged his way towards the dark side in that one. I think we may have seen the last of him so far as Rebels is concerned; if he does come back I think it would be better for all involved if Ezra approached him and not Kanan. Were it not for the fact that his little storm cloud appears to have been mere manipulation of phenomena rather than actual changing of form, I wouldn't be surprised to see him replace Maul as one of the candidates as to who Snoke was before he was...Snoke. His moment with Thrawn was pretty crazy too-wonder if Season 4 will see the fulfillment of Bendu's vision.

      Definitely a lot of setup for season 4: it'll be interesting to see what Kallus will get up to now that he's not the man on the inside...and hopefully he can get his Bo-rifle back. I'm excited for the Mandalorian Civil War and eager to see how that plays out; I'm also curious if my theory as to Rook Kast taking over for Gar Saxon is going to be proven true. It's looking like Thrawn will be continuing to pursue our Rebel friends; I'm curious to see whether they'll be bringing in a Force user counterpart for him next season, such as another Inquisitor or three. Also, I'm wondering if we're ever going to see anything of Dantooine base; it's looking more and more like the place probably served as a one-time conference room for the various Rebellion leaders before they moved it to Massassi Base.

    • I'm glad Konstantine is gone, he was annoying. I'm also glad Thrawn didn't die and that Kallus is now officially part of the rebellion. RIP Sato, he was a good man. Just like with Ahsoka, I wonder if the Bendu is really dead? I honestly thought Kanan would die as well becuase of his conversation with Ezra in the beginning of the episode. Can't wait to see what season 4 brings!

        Loading editor
    • Pretty sure Bendu's not dead; he did say that he was "beyond Thrawn's power to destroy." I would say that he's either capable of actually teleporting himself using the Force or some exclusive power of his own, or he pulled some wicked Force illusion to make it seem like he was still lying helpless in front of Thrawn when in reality he'd already been up and gone.

    • Pros

      • The Bendu being awesome
      • Ezra... for once I really liked him in this episode
      • The Thrawn + Kallus moment - truly tense
      • Gorgeous animation both in space and on land
      • YAVIN NAME DROP!
      • Sabine and Mandalore
      • General great tone

      Cons

      • Ending didn't resonate with me
      • The episodes weren't very emotional for me
      • No lasting damage for the Ghost crew
        • No sense of loss for me - they just move on to another base with few consequences
          • OK OK, poor Sato

    • What an amazing episode this was. I'm very excited for season 4 now.

      I'm glad they didn't kill off Thrawn, and I'm glad we finally get to see some character development for him. We see, just for a bit in this episode, only because he hides it so well, Thrawn is still a flawed character. He will be incredible in the next season.

      I like how in this episode we saw EVERYONE. We got some Rex, we got some Kallus, Zeb, most of the villains, it was awesome. It really felt like everything leading up to this episode paid off.

      I also thought Kanan's conversation with Ezra was foreshadowing his death, but I'm glad he's still around so they can kill him off in the next season :^).

      as for the Death Troopers, they felt a bit shoe horned in to me. It wasn't explicitly stated why they were there, they were just there. It would have been nice to see them with Thrawn through out the season.

      Sato's death was handled very well. I. Glad they are starting to kill off characters. It's really nice to see the show taking risks instead of playing it safe.

      Also that yavin name drop. We are starting to see things really come together. It's all tying up.

    • This is the first episode in 3 seasons where I have been genuinely concerned for the Rebels' safety. Took their time but the production crew pulled it off here for me.

    • I just watched the episode, it was brilliantly done i wish more episodes were like this. When the rebels were planning to jump in had a feeling they were going to move to Yavin. I'm sad that Sato died, I wonder where his nephew was during the attack. This is really making more more excited for season four. They, finally decide to kill of Kassius Konstantine which made me so happy he was honestly a useless officer and partially why Thrawn didn't win along with the Bendu.

      When the Bendu disappeared, I was kind of surprising he came back in thought he vanished to some other place but gladly he still remained neutral in the conflict attacking both sides, although the Imperials more than the rebels.

      Thrawn's interaction with Bendu certainly was interesting-he seemed to find him so fascinating, and seemed almost desperate when he heard that Bendu had "seen his future." We did get a solid chunk of characters, though there are a couple others it would have been nice to have come back; still, this episode felt pretty balanced. I agree that the Death Troopers were a bit awkward-no intro, no explanation as to their presence there all of a sudden, not even some crack by the Rebels about there being new Stormtroopers involved.

      So my hopes for season 4:

      • Some Mandalorian Civil War awesomeness.
      • Cody makes an appearance or we find out his fate.
      • Ketsu, Iron Squadron, and maybe even Quarrie make return appearances.
      • We get appearances by/find out the fates of the remaining Inquisitors, or at least the three whose existence is implied; a little more backstory on the organization/individual members would be nice as well.
      • We find out what happened to Ahsoka.

      Also, has it occurred to anyone else that we're probably going to be seeing Kallus in something other than ISB Agent armor for the first time? Makes you wonder if the ISB is going to be sending anybody out to replace him.

    • It was cool to see Bendu's darker side - it was a bit expected, considering how he is "in the middle". He is really scary when he's angry.

      A bit disappointed the Death Troopers did not use their scrambled speech. Was it that hard to just borrow a few sound effects from Rogue One?

      I loved Kallus telling Thrawn "you talk too much". That was spot on!

      Batman : You've been served, Bendu... BECAUSE I'M BATMAN!

      And same. Bendu is MAD strong (quite literally in fact), mainly because he doesn't discriminate the sides of the force he uses. He uses both to his advantage, though it seemed like he was mainly using the darkside when he made that storm.

    • Techno knight154 wrote: Do you guys think that there will be a new human inquisitor?

      Hard to say. Every Inquisitor thus far has been nonhuman, if near-human; seems to be the preference of the Rebels crew. It's understandable, given that you apparently need to be either a Force sensitive or a tactical genius to attain any sort of high ranking within the Empire even within the new continuity. Not to say it couldn't happen, but it doesn't seem to fit the pattern.

    • I might get hate for this, but despite all the space and ground fighting and Bendu's badass moments. My favorite parts of the entire episode was all of the Kallus scenes. From him fighting Thrawn at Ezra's Tower, saying that he'll take Thrawn saying he has the heart of a rebels as a compliment, watching in horror and disgust as the Rebels were being destroyed, laughing at Thrawn's confidence that he could beat the Rebels, insulting Pryce, taking down the Stormtroopers, Hera taking the time to save him, and his little moment with Kanan were just great to watch.

    • Despite the loss of Commander Sato and Chopper base, this season finale felt a bit less dramatic to me than the previous ones.

      In S1 we had the death of the Inquisitor, and the appearance of Vader and Ahsoka. In S2 we had a whole lot of dead Inquisitors, ancient Sith temple, Maul's return, Kanan's blindness, Ezra's momentary slip towards a darker path, and Ahsoka mysterious disappearance.

      That was very heartwarming indeed. Almost expected them to hug, TBH.

      Bendu's final warning to Thrawn felt a bit like Vader's "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations" moment ;)

      It would be interesting; assuming that Season 4 is going to be the last one, it would make sense that there would be some kind of explanation as to why we don't see the Ghost or any of its crew in the Original Trilogy or hear about them. Personally, I think you could find ways of working with it-such as them helping out Clan Wren in the Mandalorian Civil War, which would also explain why no Mandalorians are seen to be involved in the Galactic Civil War.

      Believe me, nothing would make me happier-I just know that a good number of fans are expecting or even hoping that they're all going to die, whether during the Battle of Scarif or in events leading up to it.

    • Well obviously that's why they weren't written into the films. I think Voltron means an in-universe explanation as to why they were absent, which the writers need to address just the same as they explained why Ahsoka wasn't in Revenge of the Sith.

      I wouldn't mind seeing it either, I just don't want it to turn out that it's where the Ghost and some if not all of it's crew met their ends. Rogue One has already killed off plenty of Star Wars heroes that I love-Jyn, Kaytoo, Chirrut, Bodhi, Raddus-and I don't particularly like the idea of finding out that it's killed off a half dozen more off-screen.

    • They aren't obliged to give in-universe explanations, actually. They may do so, but they don't really have to.

      Rogue One isn't a good example for killing characters because they were all introduced in that same movie. It created them... and then wiped them out, conveninently eliminating all loose ends. No characters from other movies/series were harmed.

      It would be nice to see the crew experience the battle of Scarif. An even more radical idea - what if we get episodes that takes place after the events of Episode IV (evacuation of Yavin 4, maybe, or the search for a new base leading up to Hoth?)

      That's what I've been saying for a while now: Rebels may lead up to and even stretch past A New Hope. There's no saying how far they could take it.

    • Taking the show beyond ANH can serve both purposes - explore this relatively unknown segment of the lore and also provide the much-desired explanation about the Rebels' fate. It would be great if they really do it.

      At any rate, we have a long wait before S4 arrives.

    • So has it occurred to anyone else that none of the big recurring Imperials from the first two seasons-minus Vader and Tarkin, obviously-are part of the picture anymore? I mean:

      • Aresko and Grynt were executed way back in Call to Action.
      • The Grand Inquisitor perished in Fire Across the Galaxy.
      • Maketh Tua attempted to defect and was killed in The Siege of Lothal.
      • The Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister both died in Twilight of the Apprentice (along with the Eighth Brother, but he was hardly recurring).
      • Yogar Lyste was imprisoned back in Through Imperial Eyes, and frankly incompetent enough that I don't see him coming back.
      • Kallus officially defected to the Rebellion in this episode.
      • And last-and certainly least-Konstantine perished in this episode.

      It's just kind of crazy how they've whittled the named Imperial ranks down to season three introductions, with the barely notable exception of Brom Titus: the guy's had three appearances and one of them was a cameo. EDIT: Forgot about Valen Rudor...but then, it's not hard considering how long it's been since he's even been name-dropped.

        Loading editor
    • It seems working for the Empire is a hazardous job :P

      Indeed, they'd have to introduce at least one or two new Imperial fodder characters. GOvernor Pryce's appearance was long awaited and welcome, but it would be nice to see something more.

      Oh, Titus seems to be pretty incompetent too. And this comes nicely bundled with arrogance and an inflated ego.
