Podcast Stardust #264: Rebels – The Mystery of Chopper Base – 0220

by Podcast Stardust

While establishing their new base, Hera and the Rebels discover a mysterious new threat that must be dealt with before the Jedi leave to confront the Inquisitors.

It is the penultimate episode of season two of Star Wars: Rebels. After spending most of the season searching for an appropriate location for a new base, the Rebels finally begin constructing their new headquarters. However, the mysterious new world they call home has a hidden danger, and when a Rebel pilot goes missing, Hera and the Rebels must act quickly to save their new home. In addition, Kanan and Ezra are preparing to depart to confront the Inquisitors, and this brings some turmoil for Hera.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Kanan and Ezra training to confront the Inquisitors,
  • Whether Kanan has taken a step back in his belief in his skills as a teacher,
  • The history of the Krykna and their influences in Star Wars,
  • The mission to rescue Rex from the Krykna,
  • Ezra’s attempts to connect with the Krykna,
  • Hera’s mixed feelings about Kanan and Ezra leaving, and
  • Ahsoka’s arrival as the Jedi prepare to depart.
