Podcast Stardust #270: Rebels – Twilight of the Apprentice – 0221

by Podcast Stardust

Season 2 of Rebels concludes with an epic clash between Ahsoka and Darth Vader. Plus, Maul returns and tries to claim Ezra as an apprentice.

After evading Darth Vader and the Inquisitors all season, Kanan, Ezra, and Ahsoka head to Malachor in hopes of finding the knowledge they need to defeat them. However, the mysteries of Malachor rapidly assault the Jedi shortly after their arrival. Plus, Ezra meets an unexpected ally in a man calling himself “Old Master.” Can Ezra trust this man? Will they learn what they need on Malachor? We examine one of the best episodes of Rebels from any season on this episode of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The importance of Malachor and its source from Legends material,
  • Maul’s role in the story and his attempt to tempt Ezra to the dark side,
  • Kanan becoming blind after Maul’s attack and how Kanan handles it,
  • Darth Vader’s arrival and his confrontation with Ahsoka,
  • Ahsoka’s fate and the open mystery that was left after this episode, and
  • Ezra’s handling of the mysteries of the Sith temple and Maul’s manipulation.
