by Podcast Stardust

Ezra attempts to rescue a squadron of Y-wings from the Empire while Kanan learns how to overcome the loss of his vision.

On this episode of Podcast Stardust, we continue are celebration of our second anniversary with a discussion of “Steps Into Shadow, Part 2,” the second episode of season three of Star Wars: Rebels. Ezra has decided to recover the Y-wings the Empire is destroying at Recklam station, but he has no authorization from Hera and the Rebellion to do so. He makes some dangerous choices that will have a long lasting impact. Meanwhile, Kanan and the Bendu discuss how Kanan might recover his sight through the Force. Will it work and will it be enough? Join us as we dive into another exciting episode of Rebels.

In this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Ezra’s decision to recover the Y-wings without Hera’s approval,
  • How Ezra leaned into the dark side of the Force on this mission,
  • Whether Ezra might be addicted to the power the Sith holocron taught him,
  • How Kanan learned to overcome his grief after talking to the Bendu,
  • Grand Admiral Thrawn’s grand plan to defeat the Rebels, and
  • The development of the larger Rebellion.
