    Ahhh, I had the same reaction!!!! #HeraLives!!! ๐Ÿ˜
    The whole episode was amazing, but there was one little thing from our favorite Princess in the end of that episode that I may not totally agree with… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

        Yus, it’s on the Disneyxd one I’m pretty sure. EEEP I’LL TRY NOT TO SPOIL IT BUT IT’S HARD!!! Actually, though they WERE GREAT episodes, it’s a little disappointing. . . the most expected parts of each episode ended up being a lot more low-key than I thought they’d be. . . but still, one WAS the episode I’ve been waiting for and I can FINALLY start work again on my armor YAY!!! Sabi’s new look debuted so I have enough references YAY!!!! xD

        That sounds awesome!!! I can’t wait to watch them tonight!! (Um, this may sound kinda weird, but, was there anything that might be… ya know, a problem? I always watch with my little sisters, and I never know what might could come up that I’m not aware of… This being the last season and the makers already telling us how intense and mature and all its gonna be just has me a bit cautious…)
        I’ve seen some people saying they were the most intense of the season yet… I hope it does live up to that! The clips and promo pictures they’ve got out look amazing, and honestly I’m just glad we get to see Lothal again. ๐Ÿ˜€
        Ooh, I can’t wait to see more of what you do with it!! I love Sabine’s new colors and hairstyle for the latter bit of s4, so it’ll be super cool to see once you get it done!! ๐Ÿ˜€

        Oi, it’s the same here, I have two little sisters who love to ‘watch’ Rebels with me xD (they usually just comment on how silly Chopper is but eh). Well, it’s pretty much just normal Rebels. Did you see the preview from the recon last week? That’s about as far as that goes. As for Flight of the Defender there’s a pretty usual Ezra vs a ton of troopers battle, a few explosions and the like. The Occupation is a pretty typical undercover mission, not much fighting or all, it’s probably fine. My youngest sister is under nine; we usual watch most of the episodes with all of my siblings.
        Well, with only two other full episodes out yet I suppose they could say that (but honestly Ezra’s little wave is the sweetest, somebody find me a GIF) as it’s been kinda slow so far. I mean, I love it, but the ‘high-action’ folks are kinda disappointed I think. And the lothwolf. The lothwolf. Ai, he’s so sweet (ish).
        Hehe, I think the hardest part is gonna be the hair and holster/belt — I haven’t found a proper wig to dye, and my leatherworking is practically beginners xD

        Lol, my typing’s not been the most efficient lately either… I think it’s largely due to the cold making my fingers stiff, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Wow, now I’m even more excited for the episode!! I keep seeing little pictures and stuff around the internet, but I’m trying not to get any big spoilers before I get a chance to watch them through.
        This sounds horrible, but part of me is already starting to get impatient for next week’s episodes!!!
        And at the same time there’s the other part of me that’s feeling sad because I know that with every new episode we get, we come that much closer to the end of the series… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

        It’s funny, because though this is marketed as two different episodes, they actually flow together really well, much like the Lost Commanders and Relics of the Old Republic.

        I know!! When I first found out there were going to be 2 a night on most weeks I was excited, then I realized that it just meant it was gonna be over that much faster!! Plus they’ve already told us this will be a shortened season, so it’s just that much harder to navigate all the feels…
        Oh, cool! Yep, Mr. Dave (lol, the name my Rebels fangirl friends and I use for Dave Filoni) said that the first 5 episodes or so would be on finishing up things from the last season, and from then on out they’ll be mostly on tying up Ezra’s story and the other threads that have been running since the show started. And he also said this season is gonna be super connected, more so even than Clone Wars ever was, so that it feels like just one long episode told over the coarse of several weeks. But that might be a bad thing, too, because we’re coming up on the mid-season break really fast, and I don’t know how I’m gonna survive!!!!! We get TLJ in there of course, but still!!!

        Meep, it’s awful. . . only such a short time until Rebels goes the way of the ewok show. . . xP Of course not. It’s far better in my opinion than any of the SW animated shows.
        Oi, that makes sense, it has been seeming like things that could have been in S3. (Hehe, I picked up on calling him Cowboy Hat Guy xD)
        Oh boy, so essentially we get what, four? episodes all stretched over a season. . . oh boy. OH AK that means CLIFFHANGER for an entire two months OH NOES!!! That, my friend, calls for a seasons 1-3 marathon (I love the word marathon. It has Mara in it xD). Hopefully my local library gets in S3 soon, so I can see Legacy of Mandalore again YAY!!!
        YUS, and to make up for the absence of lothkitties, we get PORGS and ICEFOXIES!!! EEEK!!!
        (Oh, there’s something Ezra says in The Occupation I reaaally want to talk to someone about — it literally sounds like if it happens it’ll send the series head-over-heels in an opposite direction than where I thought it was going, yet it still makes sense!)

        Oh, I really hope not! Rebels has added so much to the canon, just look at what they’ve done with Thrawn! I hope no one just drops it once the show’s over, including Lucasfilm themselves. I hope they keep on making novels and comics to carry on the storylines of the characters, and they get crossovers into the next animated show they do, and possibly even appearances in the anthology movies! (Like Saw, who started out as a Clone Wars character and ended up jumping into the live-action movies with Rogue One.)
        And more Rey!! I can’t wait!! =D

        EEK I KNOW!!! Did you catch what Ezra said early in Occupation??? Mon had said it would be hard to get them out of Lothal again. I might be paraphrasing but the gist of it was “I’ve had a lot of time to think about this, and I’ve made my choice. I’m going to help Lothal, and that means I stay with my people,” or something along those lines. Hehe, and then seeing the clip for next week and they’re STILL on Lothal. . . I think Ghost crew has found their new home — Lothal. Also, if I’m right, next week’s (Kindred) will be MOAR WOLVES YAAAYYZZZ!!!
        Hehe, she looks like she and Finn have a pretty good arc. Also, I think the names were better before Disney got Star Wars. . . Rose, Paige, Finn, Poe. . . I know a people named some of those xD)

      • Shay · November 1, 2017

        Ahh, I did catch that, and now I don’t know what I think about it!! We all know Ezra sometimes says things out of emotion or thinking it’ll go one way in a moment of quick decision, but then he changes his mind later. It just really worries me, because I don’t want this to be foreshadowing that he’ll never leave Lothal, and I don’t mean that in a good way… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
        We know Hera’s devoted to the Rebellion, and eventually ends up back with them for quite a few years (and Chopper stays with her, of course). And the Ghost crew always talks about how they’re a family and they’re all gonna stay together…. so does that mean that they’ll split up, Ezra will stay behind and the rest who are left at the end of all this will go back to the Rebellion? That’s sad, I really don’t want that to happene… But I’ve also thought… does it mean they all plan to stay on Lothal, but most of them aren’t left by the time this is over and she heads back by herself??

        (And yup, kinda have to agree with you about the names…. honestly I wasn’t too thrilled with “Ezra” when I first heard about Rebels, but it’s really grown on me, and at least they’ve told us one of the reasons they picked it was for what the name means in the Bible.)

        Ooo, I never thought about it that way. . . AK this could be bad for Blueberry!!! Ai, foreshadowing is a blessing and a curse xD
        Yeah, so Hera and Chop return to the Rebellion. That’s about all we have confirmed, and there’s evidence supporting Sabine’s survival. Ya know that S4 poster? (I have it posted if you can’t find it) The TIE’s are firing at everyone except Hera and Chop. Is this foreshadowing??? I hope not!
        I’m almost sure Sabine will go back to Mandalore, as much as she and Ezra are buddies I doubt she’ll stay on Lothal with him. Zeb, I’m thinking, will go back to Lirasan. And Kanan. . . I hate to say it but I honestly can’t see a plausible way to keep him around. I saw earlier that the fates of Kanan, Ezra, Thrawn and Soki will be confirmed, so that probably means Ezra’s staying on Lothal one way or another. As for Kanan, going into hiding doesn’t really seem like much of a *fate* seeing as Yoda and Obi both came out of hiding. So yeah. Hehe, I just realize I sound rather different when I’m writing theories than when I’m talking (writing) normally xD
        (Yeah, they’re getting worse about as time progresses too. Some fans have better names than the shows do! I never really had a problem with Ez, possibly because it was a Bible name xD The meanings they chose were really good though – especially Kanan. “Green.” *dies laughing*)

        I have seen that poster, and YES, I have seen that theory too!!! I am kinda worried about it, just because it does make sense…. ๐Ÿ˜
        And did you see that clip for next week’s episode, the one with Kanan and Hera talking in the field?? For some reason it just concerns me, because I feel like, if something does happen to those guys, it’ll happen while Hera’s away. And that’ll just make it that much more sad…. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
        Ahhh, it’s sooo haaaard!!!! I’m able to think of a few possible ways everyone could survive, but then again, it seems like the most likely thing for them to do is kill off most of them….. But then on the other hand, we know how much Mr. Dave likes to throw the fans things nobody is expecting, so maybe they’re setting it up like this so we *think* they’ll all die, but in the end they don’t! That would be good, right? But then if you think about it even hard, maybe they’re setting it up so we think everyone will die and then decide that because it looks like that it means they won’t die just so they can kill them off and we’re still shocked!!!
        ……..
        Ok, I think I need to take a break thinking about this so much now, my brain hurts….

        I liked that book ok, and Thrawn was pretty cool too. Both gave interesting insights into the heads and earlier years of their main characters. (Didn’t care for the amount of language in Thrawn, though, and a bit too much romance in Leia for me…)

        YES they were SO GOOD!!!! Both of the episodes were just amazing, but Kindred was so intriguing when it got into what was going on with the wolves and their connection to Lothal and all that. But I thought it was gonna start answering questions!! I just have more than ever now!!!! And yes, that was perfect! I didn’t know how they’d end up pulling that scene off, but in my opinion, it was done totally right!! I was’t expecting those episodes to be a funny as they actually were in several places, especially with as heavy and “mature” as this season’s been (I mean seriously, Seevor *literally* got *incinerated* and Ezra made a joke out of it!!). But it all just worked so perfectly that way!

        EEP I know!!! I can’t wait to see more wolfies, and I wonder why the white one hangs with the two grays, and why the grays seem to dislike the humans/lasat. I wonder if they’re sithwolves xD Ai, just when we think answers will come, they only give us more questions xD I know they said no fillers this season, but that’s how Crawler Commandeers came across to me as — it literally seemed to be a sub-plot occurring while Hera had the only *real* stuff! However, fillers have always been my favs, so I’m not complaining xD It set up nicely for Rebel Assault next week; the ending was so precious with all the enormous grins from Ezzy and Zebby xD I just hope that a certain Mando doesn’t suddenly find a reason to go home. . . say, is it me or did I see mandos in the trailer that haven’t been seen yet? I’m hoping we get more of the ‘cherry-blossom’ mandos xD Lovin’ clan Vizla’s new designs xD (Hehe, too bad, I liked that guy!

With the way they’ve managed to pack *so much* into just this first half, the second half can’t possibly be anything but flat out amazing!!!
        It also means A LOT will have to start happening REALLY FAST, and I’m not sure I’m gonna be emotionally prepared for what that might mean…. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        Everyone is really worried about Kanan too, because even though people have been saying it’ll probably happen forever now (like, literally since the show started), it’s not gonna make actually seeing it any easier… Everyone seems to be taking the fact that they’re finally starting to acknowledge some stuff with his an Hera’s relationship as a sign that he’ll probably…. ya know…. something bad will happen…. But it makes me SO SAD to think about, because they were all so happy right before she left, and when they finally got that call to her through!! And everyone’s so hopeful, and they’re thinking things are gonna finally start going better for them!! Ezra really thinks they’re gonna be able to help Lothal, and Kanan and Hera think there’s a future for them together after the war is over, and …. and….. ugghhh, I just so torn now…. On one hand I want it to hurry up and keep giving me answers and more episodes, but on the other one I know the faster we get episodes the faster it’s over, and the faster bad things will start happening to everyone….
