    The next episode of Star Wars Resistance, 'The Disappeared', airs on the Disney Channel this coming Sunday. We were sent a new clip and some cool images from the upcoming episode which has a lot of changes happening at the Colossus in the wake of the First Order's presence.








    If you have cable, you can download the Disney NOW app to watch episodes of Star Wars Resistance before their normal Sunday air time. You simply need to link it, for free, using your cable provider login information and that's it! Based on the air time of this Y-7 series and the option to see the episodes earlier, it is clear Disney is steering audiences more towards streaming and using apps, perhaps to get customers used to the upcoming streaming service set to launch this year. Either way, it's new Star Wars, whether you watch it early or right on schedule!

    As expected, The First Order's presence is affecting everything wherever it goes, and the Colossus and all stationed there are no exception. Tick-tock as we march closer to the events teased in the second-half trailer, which will crossover with the genocidal events that took place in The Force Awakens.

    The First Order's grip on the Colossus tightens.

    This episode we see the occupation become a reality. More FO troops land, beefing up security to levels Doza fears will bring great damage and suffering to his community if they resist. The FO's view of the Aces becomes apparent when all races are canceled, including the Ace qualifying race. FO propaganda spreads including calls to join the FO (guess they accept volunteers in addition to stolen child soldiers). We also see how there are very mixed sentiments about the FO among the citizens of the galaxy. But when voices speak out against the FO too loudly, like any good fascist organization, those voices are quickly snuffed out through internment and removal to off-world camps.

    As things grow worse on the Colossus, Doza and Yeager begin having secret meetings. Since each are retired leaders from the Empire and Rebellion, respectively, they both have the ability to plan an effective resistance if they need to. They seem to both know more than our younger characters about the platform and about the world so it will be interesting to see what happens when their plan is revealed.

    Kaz and Tam's rivalry grows with their polar views of the FO. Tam is very pro-FO as she was pro-Empire because of her desire for stability, security, and safety over liberty. Tam is even willing to give up her dream of racing for the sake of the FO. Tam is suspicious of everyone, it seems, as she definitely has a chip on her shoulder. Throughout the season, this has led to awkward encounters between Tam and Kaz, Yeager, and Neeku. We may see that pay off in this episode.

    A few familiar faces get caught up in the arrests, including Hype, Aunt Z, and the little alien that tried to rob Kaz's racing trophy. Kaz and Torra rescue them and they steal a FO landing craft with a course set for Takodana. I'm definitely curious to see if any of them are in the background of Maz's castle when Han arrives in TFA.

    Finally, when Kaz and Torra return from the successful mission, they find Yeager and his team under arrest in the hanger. Just before their rescue mission, they ran into Tam, whose suspicions were on high alert. Her blind loyalty to the FO may have led her to rat out the rest of the crew. Or maybe the FO arrested them for other reasons. That remains to be seen in the next episode. Either way, we will see how this arrest will affect her opinion of her captors.

    The show's creators are having some fun with us by dispersing the characters we've come to know through Kaz's goofy hijinks throughout the worlds we experience in TFA. We have connections to the Hosnian system, D'Qar, StarKiller Base, Jakku, and Takodana all making appearances in the past or future plans of our cast of characters.

    CB-23 fills in for BB-8 without any trouble. It almost makes me wonder whether BB was necessary for this season since he was so easily replicated by another droid. I love the character but wish the two droids didn't blend together so easily in the writing.

    The one thing I am most surprised about in this episode is that lack of callback to the previous one. The only reference we have to any of the extremely important things that happened last week is a brief conversation between Tam and Kaz about damage to the Fireball. She accuses him of being in a fight and he claims it was just a rough re-entry. There is no sign of the doll and no mention of the mysterious hollowed-out world or the moon with the temple. Maybe they are saving that for later because this episode already had so many call-backs in it.

    Wookieepedia has updated their episode listings through episode 21 of the 22 episode season. Next week is called "The Descent". There has been a lot of speculation about the actual size and capabilities of the Colossus, so it would be fascinating if the Descent is actually going deeper (literally and figuratively) into the heart of the platform. Episode 20 and 21 are a two-parter called No Escape. The title probably speaks for itself about the team trying to get off of the Colossus away from the FO, and potentially having to watch the events of TFA play out without being able to do anything to help. No word on the finale title but we should be getting that soon.

    I'm having the same issue. I'm going to have to watch it the old-fashioned way, on TV! :p

    Wow, I feel so proud of Kaz deciding to take charge this episode--like watching your kid walk across the stage at commencement. ;) (Of course, I also know that when SKB fires, the bottom is going to fall out for him. :()

    So Aunt Z is going to go hang with her homie Maz on Takadona. (Why does this not surprise me?) I really enjoyed her in this episode. She'd rather be dead than cowed by the FO.

    Tam...it will be interesting to see how Tam figures into all this. It seemed at the end that she was under arrest by the FO too, but I know we are all wondering how her more positive perspective on the FO combined with her frustration with Yeager and Kaz will (or has) come into play. This is the first cliffhanger we've had in the series, and it's a nice signal that the season finale is approaching!

    Does anyone else think there was never actually any FO spy as we thought at the beginning of the series?

    P.S. The episode still isn't showing up in my Disney Now app.

    Star Wars Explained has a guess as to how she figures into it.

    To answer your question, I'm torn. I think the closest thing to a F.O. spy on the Colossus was Synara and the pirates, given their deal. But I think it'd be a double punch to have Tam be "arrested" for potentially being a spy and then it turns out she's actually been a part of the F.O. and is simply reporting in who she really thinks the spy is. Her friendship with Hype? To keep tabs on a known potential threat. Her tutelage under Yeager? To keep tabs on a known former Rebel who's also a famous pilot. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    The problem with this theory is the format of the show and Kaz himself. Resistance is a straightforward show; so far the only twist has been that Captain Doza was in the Empire. To have Tam be the spy after all this time feels way too...dare I say...smart/bold for this type of show. As for Kaz, if Tam was a Resistance Spy his behavior should have tipped her off and the F.O. should have been prepared for him in certain circumstances. While this can be argued that a lot of Kaz's big adventures were conveniently off-world with Poe, I feel like it would still be something Tam would have noticed and given the F.O.

    As a lover of stories, I think Tam being the spy would be a nice twist; as a black man, I would not like this at all. Between Mace Windu being a bit of a jerk, Lando being a traitor in his first appearance and a rogue, Finn being a F.O. Stormtrooper (who has had a LOT of internet backdraft ranging from before TFA's release to even now), Captain Brunson from Rebels being a one-off villain, Saw Gerrera being a terrorist, and Ciena Ree and Rae Sloane both being Imperial, it just feels like there aren't a lot of black characters that start out on the good side and stay that way. Like, even in a galaxy far, far away we can't be just the good guys. Now, there is Yeager, but given the trend so far, that's why I like him.*

    To conclude there probably isn't a spy. But if there is, it's either someone from Team Fireball or the Aces.

    *I don't want to sound like I hate Star Wars or anything. I LOVE all the characters stated above, and I can't forget Sana "Solo," Tula Markona and her father, Beckett's wife from Solo or Nakari Kelen from Heir to the Jedi. And I'm excited for F.O. Security Agent Tierny (probably too excited lol), but I just feel like they aren't being used enough or in enough positive ways if that makes sense. Like, half of the characters either end up dead or (Windu, most likely Brunson, Gerrera, Sloane (bonus points for OFF SCREEN), Beckett's wife, Nakari, Tula's dad) or shipped off to who-knows-where (Ree, Tula). It just feels...disingenuous at times I guess? Like, why does our story have to end bad, so that others can get their happy ending?

    I'm gonna end my tirade here. It's long enough as it is.
    Overall, this was a really good episode, with things ramping up to the finale. Can't wait to see how it all ends.

    Actually, I just happened to watch the Star Wars Explained review of this episode earlier today. It's the only review of theirs of Resistance I've seen! It does make sense that, with the midseason trailer shot of Tam getting taken away, Tam might get blamed for some of Kaz's activities, especially since the Fireball is pretty recognizable.

    If she really was the informant though, would they arrest her unless it was for show? Or would they think she's a double agent?

    Like you said, Resistance is pretty straightforward and all that seems like a lot for it to present. Tam is a smart cookie and I think she would have outed Kaz long ago if she really was an informant. He is waaaaay too suspicious. :p

    I see what you're saying about Tam as a black person... I don't want her to be or do wrong because I like her so much. Being a woman, I would be mad too in her shoes if some young hotshot (and mostly incompetent) guy swooped in and got adopted as the boss's pet and took over my ship and screwed it up and got to fly as an ace when I'd worked so hard to get there. I want her to achieve the dreams she mentioned to Synara. Obviously that needs to happen on the good guys' side! (Also, re: Finn...I am really hoping for Finn's arc in IX to come back around and have his defection pay off in a truly heroic way.)

    I tend to think that the whole idea of the FO spy that the Resistance had was simply wrong. If there was contact with the FO, it was probably just Doza trying to feel his way through his pirate/fuel shortage dilemmas, and the FO were hovering, reading to take advantage. I wouldn't call anything Doza did "spying"...I doubt he was really trying to cover any of that up. He's just between a rock and a hard place.

    (I really tried to make Opeepit the spy, but I think TPTB were just having fun making him appear in each episode of the first half of the season and that's all. I miss not seeing him as much in the second half of the season.)

    I'm with you and Use the Falchion on Tam. I don't think she is a spy or is an operative for the FO. She's smart, ambitious, and seems to be very concrete in how she sees the world (galaxy). She is a naturally inquisitive and suspicious person who needs to know what is going on to feel included. She has every reason to be frustrated by Kaz. He's a moron who is given way too much slack and preference by their employer, and made himself an easy opponent for her. She values stability, certainty, and order, which can be exploited by groups seeking to take away freedom in exchange for safety and justice. We see her willingness to trade personal liberties and her freedom for a sense of safety and control in the last couple of episodes when she rationalizes each encroachment by the FO on her life. Even her dream and greatest desire, to be an Ace, is snuffed out in a day, yet she still defends the cause. She isn't a spy, but we have seen that she is the kind of person who is smart enough to be suspicious and see through Kaz's bad lies, yet naive enough to be dangerous since she doesn't understand the full consequences of what is happening around her. It is possible that she may alert the FO to her suspicious in order to try to do the right thing, but then end up getting implicated herself. If that happens, I expect that she will undergo a massive change in her worldview when she sees the true face of the FO and she will use her abilities to free them. Tam isn't a villain, she's misguided and uninformed, but she has the tools to become a hero once she finds the truth.

    I can't agree that Kaz is a moron, but I can agree that Tam might see him that way. ;)

    This is one thing I really appreciate about the recent episodes--spelling out why people might appreciate and even applaud FO-type organizations via Tam's viewpoint. There can be a subtleness about such philosophies that needs some calling out. (I just wish it didn't have to be Tam expressing those views.)
