Star Wars Rebels - An Inside Man

After a few weeks of the show getting lost in various sidestories, “An Inside Man” gets back to basics with the Ghost‘s return to Lothal. Based on the intelligence provided by Morad (Liam O’Brien) about a hush-hush project, Ezra (Taylor Gray) and Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) sneak inside the factory to learn more. Sadly, the rebellious actions of Morad and his co-conspirators bite the Rebels in the ass and the most inconvenient time as Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) arrives in order to investigate the recent sabotage of Imperial weapons and vehicles and punish those responsible.

Star Wars #25

in Comics

Star Wars #25Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, Sana, and the rest of the Rebels aboard the stolen Imperial Star Destroyer fight for their lives against both Sgt. Kreel and his elite band of stowaway Stormtroopers and the scores of Imperial ships attempting to prevent the stolen Harbinger from smashing through the blockade of Tureen VII.

The climax of the storyline focused on both the Rebels theft of a Star Destroyer and Kreel’s Scar Squadron, Star Wars #25 is filled with quite a bit of action including Luke in a lightsaber duel with Kreel and coming across Darth Vader in space (and smartly deciding to live to fight another day rather than push his luck any further).

Star Wars Rebels – The Wynkahthu Job

Star Wars Rebels - The Wynkahthu Job

Like the past three episodes, “The Wynkahthu Job” feels a bit like filler as we continue to wait for the season’s big events to get underway. At least this episode does offer the return of the amusing Hondo (Jim Cummings) who it seems Ezra (Taylor Gray) still hasn’t given up hope for. Partnering with Azmorigan (James Hong), the disreputable characters bring a proposal too good to be passed up by the Rebellion (even if is suicidal). An Imperial Class 4 Container Transport is in decaying atmospheric orbit of the planet Wynkahthu. While the greedy Hondo and Azmorigan want to split the treasures aboard the abandoned craft, the Ghost‘s crew is far more interested in its cargo of proton bombs which are in scarce supply for the Rebellion.

Star Wars Rebels – Iron Squadron

Star Wars Rebels - Iron Squadron

A forgettable episode in pretty much every respect, “Iron Squadron” introduces the crew of the Ghost to a trio of young Rebels defending their homeworld of Mykapo from the Empire. While the young members of Iron Squadron have been able to fight back a little Imperial presence, the Empire turning their attention to the sector has brought the Ghost in to evacuate the locals and attempt to talk some reason into Iron Squadron before they pick a fight they won’t survive. Although Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) makes a token apperance here, the episode is largely disconnected from the bigger themes of the season. And with the focus of the episode being on (the far less interesting) Iron Squadron, the result is the weakest episode of the show’s Third Season.
