Star Wars Rebels - Brothers of the Broken Horn

Another familiar face from Star Wars: The Clone Wars makes on an appearance on Star Wars Rebels when Ezra (Taylor Gray) responds to a distress call from Vizago (Keith Szarabajka) only to find Vizago's ship and battle droids disabled and Hondo Ohnaka (Jim Cummings) in command with Imperial forces closing in. Choosing to go by the name Lando Calrissian, Ezra and his new friend get into a few more misadventures before all is said and done thanks to the arrival of Azmorigan (James Hong), Ezra releasing Vizago from the ship's hold, and a last-minute double-cross by Hondo.

"Brothers of the Broken Horn" is a good measuring stick for the growth of Ezra Bridger over the series so far. Although at the beginning of the episode Ezra is chaffing at the loss of independence he once knew, he's far from the selfish alley rat we were introduced to in the show's first episode who would have jumped at the chance to partner up with Hondo. A valued member of the crew and a Jedi in training, the kid has come a long way even going so far as to put the needs of the Rebellion, and the generators in Vizgo's ship, ahead of any monetary payment he could squeeze out of Hondo or Vizago.
