Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #24.5: Twin Suns
Welcome to episode 24.5, a Scoundrels Special Edition. On this episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels, Dennis and Taxus discuss the latest episode of Rebels, “Twin Suns.” This show contains spoilers for latest episode of Rebels.
As is usual lately, Dennis starts this Scoundrels Special Edition with some trivia. Therefore, this episode carries on the tradition. Dennis has a few questions in store for Taxus related to Maul from his time as an outcast, Maul’s battles during the Clone Wars, and Tatooine. How does Taxus do? Also, can you answer these questions?
Maul’s Hunt for Kenobi
After the trivia, the guys get into “Twin Suns.” Maul finally arrived on Tatooine. Since learning of Obi-Wan’s survival during “Holocrons of Fate,” Maul has been hunting him. Despite his attempts, he cannot locate Kenobi on the desolate world. Therefore, he resorts to summoning Ezra Bridger through remains of the Holocrons.
Although this episode features Obi-Wan’s climactic duel with Maul, Ezra Bridger is featured. Maul needs a lure for Obi-Wan’s nobility, and Ezra will do nicely. Dennis and Taxus therefore discuss Ezra’s involvement. Was he necessary? Could this episode have used less Ezra? Also, did Ezra learn anything?
Ever since “Holocrons of Fate,” Rebels viewers anticipated this showdown. So, it is natural to wonder if it lived up to the hype. Dave Filoni and the creative team at Lucasfilm carefully crafted the final battle. Did it work? In addition, what move did Maul attempt to finish Kenobi with?
The Legacy of Maul
Once this episode was over, it was fitting to ask what it meant for Maul. For instance, did he find peace? Also, did he intend to win? What if he had won? Furthermore, Maul asked Obi-Wan an interesting question. Obi-Wan’s answer sparked debate among the fan community. What did each of them mean? Are they correct?
There is plenty to discuss in this episode. So, join Dennis and Taxus analyze “Twin Suns.” Thanks for listening to episode 24.5 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Twin Suns and Legacy of Maul.
