We are back with another great episode of Rebels and this may be one of the most important episodes of the Rebels show. We finally see more with Sabine, so let’s delve into the episode.
We get a lot of history and backstory, for not only Sabine but also the darksaber. I loved this episode, we get the story of Sabine, finally learning more and more about her family and why we haven’t seen her with them. We find out that she has a lot of guilt surrounding her family and Mandalor.
The backstory we get of the darksaber is very, very interesting, we find out that it was built by the first Mandalorian Jedi and the Mandalorian’s stole what they believe was rightfully theirs. We also got the lesson of the Jedi vs Mandalorian’s, now maybe this is a reference to the Clone Wars but it could also be the Mandalorian Wars, old republic era.
Kanan had a large role in this episode, how he doubted himself, but also doubted Sabine, how he gave Sabine a training stick and Ezra was allowed to go straight into lightsaber training.
I knew that Sabine kicked the Bendu, I recognised the rocks as soon as she kicked it and we got confirmation when she walked off, the Bendu sat up and looked around.
The fight between Kanan and Sabine was great as it had an emotional core and it allowed Sabine to tap into what she needs, she was able to use her emotion to beat Kanan (nitpick here) now while it was interesting that she beat Kanan, I wasn’t overly happy she had him down like that but I get it.
I am looking forward to seeing where this story arc is going, I want to see where Sabine goes and what will happen. I would give this episode a 4.1/5. This will be an episode I will be rewatching soon enough, tell me what you thought of the episode, are you looking forward to seeing where we go?
