While on the planet Garel to meet with a droid courier Sabine (Tiya Sircar) and Ezra (Taylor Gray) run into Sabine’s old partner bounty hunter Ketsu Onyo (Gina Torres) who also has plans on taking the droid. “Blood Sisters” offers audiences a small glimpse into Sabine’s past by showing us Ketsu as a version of the Ghost‘s artistic bounty hunter who is far more ruthless than the one we know and love.
Another familiar face from Star Wars: The Clone Wars makes on an appearance on Star Wars Rebels when Ezra (Taylor Gray) responds to a distress call from Vizago (Keith Szarabajka) only to find Vizago’s ship and battle droids disabled and Hondo Ohnaka (Jim Cummings) in command with Imperial forces closing in. Choosing to go by the name Lando Calrissian, Ezra and his new friend get into a few more misadventures before all is said and done thanks to the arrival of Azmorigan (James Hong), Ezra releasing Vizago from the ship’s hold, and a last-minute double-cross by Hondo.
Set shortly after the events of the Battle of Yavin in the original Star Wars, Marvel Comics’ new Chewbacca five-issue mini-series gives the Millennium Falcon co-pilot his own mission for the Rebellion. Stranded on a planet in need of parts to fix the ship he borrowed for the mission, Chewbacca makes the acquaintance of a young girl named Zarro who has escaped the local mines where her father is still a prisoner working off his debt to a local gangster and extortionist.
Despite the fact that Zarro cannot understand a word the Wookiee is saying, the pair strike up a quick rapport after Chewie decides to help the young woman on the run hide from the thugs who are chasing her. And even though he has his own mission to accomplish, Chewie certainly can’t abandon Zarro in her time of need.
