Rebels: "Trials of the Darksaber" (Ep. 3.15)

-- "Legends tell it was created over a thousand years ago..."

We've never known much about the Darksaber. Hmm... That's misleading. You can look up all the information you want about the Darksaber, but, if you're getting your knowledge of it strictly through watching Clone Wars and Rebels, there hasn't been much revealed about it before this. It's a thing that just was, so to speak. But this episode gives us some background on the weapon that hadn't been revealed before.

Needless to say, this was a pretty cool episode.

Sabine is put into a situation where she kind of has to take up the weapon. Not that she has to has to, but it wouldn't be great for her to walk away from the situation. So she has to have Kanan train her, which means that Ezra gets to spend time training her. Ezra kind of better at it than Kanan. He has more patience, at any rate.

I really enjoyed this episode and would kind of like to talk more about, but
1. Really, it's mostly about the training, which is much more interesting than it sounds since we get more of Sabine's past through what's going on, too.
2. You should just watch it. Yeah, I know that's not going to happen, but it doesn't change the truth.
3. I don't really have more time than this today. Interruptions and all that good stuff, and I have run out of time.

I think this is probably an important episode. Lots of character development and what appears to be a major plot arc developing. Cool.

"I'm not that popular with my family these days."

"I'll damage you if you don't shut up."

"I already know how to fight with a stick."
"Then this should be easy for you."


  1. Star Wars: Rebels was a great series, and I'm a little sad that it's already over. They seem to keep churning through content, but I do love all the development they are investing in regarding characters in these animated series. I wonder what the live-action series is going to be like. So excited.

    1. Michael: Yeah, I think I'm going to add Disney to the stations we subscribe to. Too many shows will be on there. At least it's going to be pretty cheap!
