Podcast Stardust #203: Rebels – The Siege of Lothal, Part 2 – 0202

by Podcast Stardust

Darth Vader corners Kanan and Ezra and then takes the attack to the Rebel fleet as he proves how deadly he can be while Ahsoka senses a familiar presence in the Force.

After their attempt to rescue Minister Tua failed, the Specters are cornered on Lothal. Their plan to escape meets an unexpected obstacle when Darth Vader arrives. Kanan and Ezra don’t know who this armored man is, but the audience does. Vader lives up to every ounce of his reputation by dominating the fight, and then returns later to lay waste to the Rebel fleet. This is an incredible episode featuring one of the greatest villains in all of Star Wars. Don’t miss our discussion.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • How Darth Vader proves he is a Sith Lord and dominates Kanan and Ezra,
  • Hera’s plan to escape Lothal that requires assistance from an old friend,
  • Whether the escape plan is actually a convincing one,
  • Vader’s dominance in this assault on the Rebel fleet, and
  • What Ahsoka senses when she reaches out in the Force.
