Rebels Review: Out of Darkness

Mitchell Stein: Star Wars Rebels just can’t stop getting better and better!

Although not really that much happened story-wise in this episode, it still stands as a really superb piece of Star Wars action and story-telling. It raises a minor question which of course is on its way to be answered in a future episode, and it finally shines some light on Sabine and Hera, the two characters who never nearly got enough screen-time. This episode packed a whole lot of awesomeness into twenty-two jam packed minutes.

I don’t think this series has the ability to pick up as easy as The Clone Wars did, and these episodes are a fine proof of that. Regardless of the fact, the writers are working with brand-new characters in this series, and they must create new character situations and development to make these characters shine, and this episode was by far the most impressive in that aspect.

Fans have been waiting to learn a little more about Sabine, other than the small bits of screen-time she made in the other episodes. This episode was clearly about Sabine, and her relationship with the group, and specifically Hera. Sabine feels she isn’t trusted when she discovers Kanan and Hera are being provided with info from a mysterious individual named Fulcrum, who we have yet to find out about.

Sabine allows us some information about her past in the Empire, which wasn’t that much to be honest, but will hopefully build to a fuller story. Regardless of her previous life before joining the Rebel team, I’m just really excited this character is being built up on, and we’re finally seeing some more of these awesome characters. Now that everything has been set up, the writers should be moving forward pretty quickly from here on in.

If I were to describe what exactly happened in this episode, it wouldn’t end up being a very long explanation. To be honest, not that much happened in this episode, but this episode was anything but boring. This week was a wonderful blend of great character development and mystery, combined with some seriously exciting action. Rebels is getting better and better every week… can’t wait to see which direction they’ll be heading in next!
