Two More Star Wars Rebels Episodes Get Synopses.

With the Star Wars Rebels trailer hitting the airwaves on January 4, another story about the show’s Season 3 slipped by many fans on the following day. Better late than never, here are the descriptions for the next two episodes of the show – along with a little bit of bad news.

 

 

From Jedi-Bibliothek (Translated):

3 × 16: “Legacy of Mandalore” (USA): February 18, 2017
In hoping to persuade her family to help the Rebels, Sabine returns home with Kanan and Ezra, and finds herself entangled in her family’s power struggle over Mandalore.

3 × 17: “Through Imperial Eyes” – USA: February 25, 2017
Fearing that the identity of a spy will soon be discovered by the Empire, the Rebels launch a plan to save him before he is caught.

 

Those who have been paying attention to the episode air dates will notice something – that “Trials of the Darksaber”, the January 21 episode preceding “Legacy of Mandalore”, airs an entire month ahead of its continuation. With the tendency for a season of the show to wrap up in March, the good news is that it’s unlikely that there will be any more hiatuses for the remaining five episodes of Season 3 (provided that it closes up with a double-length episode). Alternately, if there are more hiatuses, then it will mean that the wait between Season 3 and Season 4 will be slightly shorter than usual. So while the wait will still be aggravating, at least they’re getting rid of all (or most) of it in one go instead of padding the last few episodes out.

    From the description of “Through Imperial Eyes”, it looks like we will see some more Thrawn and Kallus (Fulcrum II) action here; can’t wait to see how it plays out.

    Thrawn is Fulcrum

    Can someone answer this for sure:
    Will the show end at season 3?

      Depends on ratings, but doubtful.

      Even if it’s canceled now, Season 4 is pretty much done. Worst case scenario is that rebels finishes out on Netflix just like TCW did.

        The real reason that TCW was cancelled had to do with the show’s high animation budget (which George Lucas was basically paying for out of his own pocket), along with an existing licensing deal with WB. They’ll finish Rebels because it’s less expensive to produce. The show should run until Season 4 at the very least, but it’s highly likely that Lucasfilm will get Seasons 5 and 6 to go with it.

          I highly doubt Rebels will ever be cancelled (not that it wont have an ending. I feel 6 seasons will be enough for Rebels. Look at Clone Wars that series spanned a time period of 2.5 years (which included a time jump) and it was Ibelieved planed for 7 seasons. Rebels takes place over a 5 year span (assuming it ends at Ruge One./ANH).

          I highly doubt they will even attempt to cancel a tv series again. Not only because of the connected canon, but because the back lash of Clone Wars being cancelled is still felt today.

          Theyve tried to wrap up stuff in comics and novels. Though I loved Dark Disciple, I would have much rather see the 8 animated episodes since it finishes Ventresses story. Hell I wish they would just classfy the book as Legends and have Ventress on Rebels, she would have been a great member of the Ghost crew.

    Agent Kallus defects to the Rebellion … I think he maybe General Crix Madine

      No. Crix Madine is Crix Madine. Kallus is Kallus.

        From a certain point of view….

      I think Kallus is going to die at Thrawn’s hands in this season.

    Basically this show has become 50% Rebels and 50% Clone Wars 2.0. I love it! Filoni did the right thing, after all 🙂

    They should have kept even intervals between the episodes. These breaks are so annoying and ruin the fun. Or they could learn from Netflix and drop a whole season in one day! 😉

      netflix has spoiled us. 😉

        They could release half a season in one day on netflix (I assume they arent truly finished a season when a pilot airs).

        Not only will it avoid the long random breaks between episodes, but filler episodes wont seem so bad; you get the next plot episode instantly .

        Making us wait a two weeks for the “Satos nephew episode” then two weeks after that for another “filler” (I enjoyed that episode) was terrible

          would never happen for rebels or any of their animated shows as much as i’d love it to. but one day, hopefully sooner rather than later, we’ll get a live action netfilx show and we’ll all win.

    I just started to like this show after three seasons, and they kick me in the head by confusing me on when and when it doesn’t air.

    Love Filoni’s work here…just don’t f%*# it up by killing Thrawn. Thrawn’ character is very similar to the original inception but needs to be shown through massive victories over the Rebels as to “why” he is a Grand Admiral…what separates him from the other high-ranking Imperials. This takes a couple years and not just a handful of episodes. Also, and I think everyone agrees on this point: Thrawn needs to live and find a way into the later “Episode” movies somehow. I know, there’s a lot more to Rebels than Thrawn, but Thrawn is such an iconic Star Wars character.
