Rebels: "Rebel Assault" (Ep. 4.09)

-- "All right, let's make this count."

Stormtroopers are way too easy to knock out. Just barely tap their helmets and they go down. Why bother with the helmets at all?

Last episode, Hera was only a captain; now, she's a general.
And, by the end of the episode, captured.
Yeah, sure, it's a spoiler. Oh, well.

The rebels attempt to take out the TIE Defender production facility on Lothal... and fail miserably. Totally. You have to have moments like these to show why Thrawn is so feared.

Anyway, Kanan takes off on his own to rescue Hera -- remember, they kissed! -- but the Loth-wolves intervene. Why? Well, it's all part of the larger story that's happening. I'm assuming we'll find out soon enough.

Not that I want Rebels to be over with, exactly, but I am eager to get to the end of this story.
And, actually, I want to watch the newly released final season of Clone Wars, which I plan on doing once I'm finished with Rebels. There are parts of Rebels I've really come to like, but Clones Wars is the superior series.

"So the rebels have come... at last."

"You're good at distractions."
"I am?"


  1. New final season? I may need to check that out at some point!

    1. TAS: Yeah, I reviewed some of them already because had the unfinished versions of some of them available, but they have now gone back and finished the animation on the full season. I'm looking forward to watching it!
