    not at all! i think we can all agree that regret and heroic action is a necessary part of the formula. : D
    i'm really hoping the epilogue is an indicator that the next series will be post Yavin, pre-TFA.

    I just wanted you to say it. :D

    I think that is a good guess. We can have parallel adventures - with Ezra & Thrawn and Ahsoka & Sabine, because Force knows where those space whales took them. It could be the Wild Space, Unknown Regions, completely different place in the galaxy. I wonder if Ezra and Thrawn would have to rely on each other, will they meet other Chiss and will Ezra meet Eli Vanto. :)

    How are you watching this as the UK dosent get the episodes till the end of the month (Thanks a lot Disney UK)

    Now even though I obvasly haven't seen it I have enjoyed reading all the reactions & discussions & the ending with Ezra & Thrawn plus the epilogue explaining what happened to the rest of the crew sounds a great way of wrapping up the series. Though I am surprised that no one else from the REBELS side were killed off.

    hahahaha ~ i have no problem saying it.

    i'd be curious to see if they keep Thrawn totally in the realm of the cartoon series, or if there may be a springboard here for the new trilogy.
    they sure have invested a lot in Thrawn in terms of the EU thus far!

    The fact that Rex was in a similar outfit (helmet anyway) as the rebel soldiers on Endor was cool too.

    no, he wasn't born after Endor.
    look how old he is in that post-Endor epilogue.

    Okay point taken, but the timing is...weird. I'm not taking this news as a gripe or anything like that by the way.

    What's so weird about the timing?

    Agreed. Interesting that he donned more traditional stormtrooper armor, too.

    I'm a board game nerd, and last week one of my favorite games teased this art of Rex.
    [​IMG]

    Seemed kinda weird at the time, especially without the iconic blue pauldrons. Now, I wonder if this is some modification of his armor sometime after Lothal...

    Kristian Harloff comments on it. I mean, there is a considerable time gap between Rebels and Post-6. It's not a force-kid thing like Anakin was?

    i guess i still don't get this. there's maybe five to seven years in between?
    and the kid is in that range, so totally plausible for Kanan to be his father.

    they just skipped showing us any sexytimes because it's a show for children.

    no?

    Did it bother anyone else that the Imperials apparently forgot they had blasters in their hands when the wolves showed up? SHOOT THEM IN THE FACE!! Ah well, it’s a kids show.
    It was strange Ezra had no reservations about blasting faceless Stormtroopers, but just talks to Thrawn for some reason. SHOOT HIM IN THE FACE!! Ah well, it’s a kids show.
    And I guess the Empire was just “alright, good game guys” and let them be? Maybe this is just me, but if I was in charge of an Empire with a world destroying super weapon, I know what my first target would be. SHOOT THEM IN THE PLANET!! Ah well, it’s a kids show.

    I mean, the Liberation of Lothal happened in 1 BBY, and the Battle of Endor is in 4 ABY. Considering that Hera was probably also pregnant for quite a few months as well (since she definitely doesn't appear to be carrying a child in the season) I'd say it's reasonable enough to say that a child that looks like this is roughly 4-5 years old.

    [​IMG]


    Eh, Rukh eventually remembered. But I mean, I guess it's reasonable enough. We all like to fancy ourselves heroes, but if a giant pack of wolves came at me (followed by a hostile army), I can't say for certain that my first instinct wouldn't also be to panic and run. I mean, you'd expect more of soldiers, but we are talking stormtroopers here... :p


    .
    True. I do wonder if the ambiguity there is reserving Thrawn for something else.

    No armor like plot armor.

    Yeah, I guess the Empire was just out because both of their interests on Lothal were no longer operational.

    Plus, they'd had a hell of a time trying to hold it, and that was just against a small cell. With the entire planet in open revolt, and a growing Rebel Alliance getting bolder, and the fact that Lothal was (as far as they knew) protected by giant wolves and eldritch space whales, I can't really blame them for just calling it quits. If anything, I guess I'm a little surprised it wasn't chosen as a test site for the Death Star, but even then maybe they were worried about risking their superweapon on a planet so hostile to the Empire.

    Lothal just wanted to be left alone, as far as I can tell, and the fact that Sabine says that they waited for an attack that never came makes me think that they really had little affiliation with the greater Rebel Alliance going forward. Again, ironic for a show titled "Rebels". :p

    Because I never stay away from Spoilers and - strange I know - enjoy it even more with all the background knowledge. It's fine. I am not angry at all. If you would know me better, you would know that I am kidding around. (Nearly) Always. :D

    Space wizard Ahsoka was the best part of the episode. She looked totally epic.

    I've been a selective Rebels viewer - I've watched only some of the episodes, but I've followed the story one way or the other, so I have a general idea of the show. Not a great fan of what I've seen, but I can't form an honest opinion until I will have watched it all. It'll happen sooner or later.

    I liked the final episode a lot, but I hoped there would be a definitive end for Ezra and there isn't one. I guess that's cool for the fans of the character, but personally I've always considered him to be such a discount Luke and found his existence kind of far-fetched from the perspective of the overarching story. Cramming so much Jedi/Force stuff into the period conventionally know to be void of it is one of my biggest gripes when it comes to Rebels. But don't treat my opinion too seriously. As I've said, I haven't seen all the episodes yet and maybe I'll change my tune a little bit in the future... ;)

    It's just that the previous episode actually has Ezra call it out “this will show the galaxy the Empire can be defeated” (or something along those lines). I guess that wasn’t a problem for them? The Empire was just “Well, we got nothing more to prove here, guys. Fair is fair after all. Let’s just hope no one else tries this, huh.”

    The Empire had no cause to think this cell wasn’t part of the greater Alliance. From their perspective, the Rebellion just took a whole world from them at a time when the Rebels weren’t even a cohesive military yet. There was no effort to make an example of them? To retaliate? That’s some weak sauce there. I’d like a little more detail on that. Y'know? Wouldn’t you?

    Ah- I do this too- it must baffle some of the folks who feel differently about “spoilers”.

    Some of us (speaking for myself, mainly) simply aren’t spoiling it for ourselves by “reading ahead” - such actions just encompass one (more) aspect of the peripheral joy we get from a show we relish.

    Indeed- concerning some of the stories told in the SWU, (especially books) I’m grateful for the “quick notes”...as they allow me to find out particulars while skipping the monetary or time commitment to (some) abysmally poor writing.

    Let's just agree that they were busy whenever they were not onscreen. (Like that time when Ezra woke up and walked into Kanan's room and saw Obi-Wan holocron).

    The Liberation of Lothal was roughly a year before the Battle of Yavin or close to. My theory now is that Hera was there in Yavin but perhaps Jacen was about to be born near when the Battle of Yavin happened. It would make sense for her not to actually appear onscreen in Rogue One (even as a background character with no dialogue) to avoid showing an advanced pregnancy and it would also explain why one of the best pilots of the Rebellion was not there with the other pilots in the Death Star attack on the orbit of Yavin. (Also, perhaps the Ghost was in the battle but someone else like Mart or Kallus were piloting it).

    Wouldn't be poetic that Jacen Syndulla were born around the Battle of Yavin whereas Ben Solo was born right after the Battle of Jakku? Two boys with a Force-sensitive parent and the other a gifted pilot lol.

    Quite the contrary, it makes a lot of sense. There some other Rebels - generic term to describe anyone standing up agains the Empire - like Saw Gerrera's Partisans, who had no formal affiliation to the Rebel Alliance. The fact that the Lothal Rebels were not in line with the Rebel Alliance show how the Rebellion was still trying to get organised, just as we saw in Rogue One where all the evidence showed the existence of the Death Star and the Rebellion was hesitating to act in a common front. Moreover, both the Lothal Rebels story as well as the Rogue One showed how the Rebellion built up from specific acts of heroism motivated by a small group, perhaps influenced by their personal stories and experiences, to act against the Empire - Ezra and friends trying to save Lothal, same as Jyn Erso and Co. to go finish what her father had started.

    AHSOKA THE WHITE!!!

    Perhaps since this world was not interesting anymore for the Emperor (due to the destruction of the Jedi Temple) or for the then-current endeavours of the Empire (the construction of the Death Star, which was competing for funds with the Tie Defender initiative), plus maybe that was when Saw Gerrera established himself in Jedha with his Partisans and started giving trouble to the Empire on their kyber crystal deliveries to Eadu, so maybe it was more important for the Empire to focus their strength on that.
