-- "I'm thinking fast thoughts; nothing's happening!"
Remember Fulcrum? Fulcrum was Ahsoka. But Fulcrum is also like 007, just a code name that gets passed around. So there's been a new Fulcrum since Ahsoka's... let's just call it a disappearance. We never did see the body, after all.
Generally speaking, Fulcrum is just a name that gets tossed out upon occasion as a reason for a particular mission. At least, that's how it's been since Ahsoka. But, this episode, our heroes come face to face with Fulcrum and, let's just say, it's a big surprise.
But I'm not going to tell you who it is.
Let's just say that this episode is a good example of tying in past events.
The only problem? Thrawn may already be onto Fulcrum. But we'll just have to see how that plays out.
Boy, that Thrawn just shows up at the most inconvenient of times!
"Do you have any manufacturing experience?"
"Then you'll fit right in."
"Your droid trusts me."
"Yeah, that's not a good thing."
