LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures - Crossing Paths

After an encounter with a squadron of Imperial T.I.E. Fighters leaves their Y-Wing damaged, Luke Skywalker (Eric Bauza) and Leia Organa (Julie Dolan) head to the nearest repair facility which just so happens to be owned by the Freemakers. With Naare (Grey Griffin) back on Coruscant for a performance review with Darth Vader (Matt Sloan) and the Emperor (Trevor Devall) all the Rebels have to deal with is a runaway ship Luke, Rowan (Nicolas Cantu), and R0-GR (Matthew Wood) get stuck on and a station full of Imperials searching for Leia.

Although their crashed adventure light-years from the station feels a bit forced, it's fun to see Rowan (who for once hides his Force abilities) spending some time with an actual Jedi. And the running gag of every plant trying to eat poor R0-GR provides some fun. The foreshadowing at the end of the episode also likely marks the young man's first doubts about his master. The rest of the episode features Kordi (Vanessa Lengies) and Leia hiding from and outsmarting Lt. Estoc (Jane Leeves) and her Stormtroopers, eventually allowing Luke and Leia to continue their adventures.
