Rebels Reconnaissance: “Heroes of Mandalore” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Heroes of Mandalore.”

The fourth season of Star Wars Rebels opens with an episode that packs a punch–albeit one a bit weaker than it might have. At its core, “The Heroes of Mandalore” is about legacy–what one leaves behind–and for Sabine, it’s about the sins of the past infecting the present. Fortunately for the Ghost’s (erstwhile?) demolitions expert, the cost of her bygone indiscretions are somewhat mollified.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Trials of the Darksaber” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Trials of the Darksaber.”

It wasn’t really that long ago that Star Wars Rebels was seen as a show that underserved its female characters at the expense of focusing on Ezra, an adolescent male and the character closest to the show’s viewing demographic. But as time went on, the doubters were proven wrong and those who preached patience were rewarded with episodes like “Blood Sisters,” a plethora of Ahsoka Tano-centric episodes (most notably “Twilight of the Apprentice”), and this season’s “Hera’s Heroes.” Now, “Trials of the Darksaber” shifts the paradigm even further by suggesting that Sabine Wren might have a more important destiny than Ezra Bridger.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Imperial Super Commandos” Review

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episode “Imperial Super Commandos.”

For many Star Wars fans, the inclusion of Mandalorians in a story automatically makes it more interesting due to the enduring fascination with Boba Fett. The Mandalorian culture has been expanded upon and redefined over the years–thanks in large part to several stories in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and that trend has continued in Star Wars Rebels with episodes like “Blood Sisters” and “The Protector of Concord Dawn.” This week’s episode, “Imperial Super Commandos” dives back into that particular mythology and gives Rebels’ resident Mandalorian, Sabine Wren, an opportunity to take center stage.

Su’cuy (hello)!

Have you ever been driving along, lost in thought, when you suddenly realize you don’t remember how you got from point A to point B during a portion of your drive? Obviously, your subconscious took over, and guided you safely to your destination.

Well, the same thing happened to me in my journey of Star Wars fandom.

Sort of…
