Initial Thoughts: I loved this episode!! Rebels is growing to be a really great show! The character development is growing well, the stories are going deeper and lasting longer, and the story lines are getting (a bit) darker. Altogether, the show is going in a good direction, and the news we are hearing about future episodes only sounds better!
Dialogue and Development: The show still does have a childish feel throughout it's dialogue, but it is getting better. They at least are exploring the emotions of the characters more than they did in the beginning of the season, which had very little character development at all.
Disappointments: No really major disappointments I guess. haha It was a pretty good episode. There's obviously some things that still need to be worked on, but nothing that hasn't been already mentioned in the fandom. One disappointment I have that doesn't really have anything to do with the quality of the show is Fulcrum, but I'll talk about that in my "Theories" section of this review.
Overview: In the end, I really loved the episode! Like I said, Rebels is simply continuing to get better with every episode! If you aren't watching it yet, you need to get yourself caught up and start watching!
Theories: I was really hoping that Ahsoka was Fulcrum, but it would seem that she is not from the above picture. Unless she's very good at hiding her headtails or maybe the image is actually of a droid, like in "Assassin," and she is just being really cautious. Another possibility is that Ahsoka is just working close with Fulcrum. Perhaps Lux is actually the mysterious cloaked persona? Or someone else from the past? It's possible that the reserved rebel could, in fact, be Barriss Offee. She was one of the first to rebel against the Jedi and Republic and what they had become, making her most likely the most knowledgeable and experienced person for the job of leading a rebellion. It's just a theory, but let me know what your thoughts are! Who do you think Fulcrum is?
Thank you for reading!
