Podcast Stardust #360: Rebels – An Inside Man – 0310

by Podcast Stardust

Kanan and Ezra infiltrate and Imperial factory and find out the identity of the newest Fulcrum and what Grand Admiral Thrawn’s plans actually are.

The crew of the Ghost return to Lothal to investigate what Grand Admiral Thrawn is up to in the Imperial factory he has established on the planet. Unfortunately, none other than Grand Admiral Thrawn himself arrives to inspect the factory and investigate acts of sabotage. However, Ezra and Kanan have an ally that is unexpected to them behind enemy lines. In the end, Ezra and Kanan discover Thrawn’s secret project. Join us for this foundational episode of Rebels that sets up story lines for episodes to come.

In this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss Star Wars: Rebels, “An Inside Man,” and discuss:

  • The infiltration of the Imperial base on Lothal,
  • Whether Thrawn can be considered anything but a villain after his actions in this episode,
  • Thrawn’s conclusions after studying art and artifacts related to the Ghost crew,
  • The identity of the latest Fulcrum agent and their actions in helping the Rebels,
  • Ezra and Thrawn’s escape from the Imperial factory, and
  • The reveal of the TIE Defender project.
