Star Wars Rebels - Legacy of Mandalore

Following the events of "Trial of the Darksaber," the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels takes Sabine (Tiya Sircar) back home to Mandalore. With Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), Ezra (Taylor Gray), and Fenn Rau (Kevin McKidd) in tow, Sabine's mission is to reconnect with her disapproving mother (Sharmila Devar) and estranged family and attempt to get them to turn against the Empire. For the second episode in a row, Star Wars Rebels gives us a look into Sabine's past and the troubled history that led her to joining the Rebellion.

Not surprising given her troubled family history, things don't go smoothly as Ursa chooses to turn Kanan and Ezra, along with the Darksaber, over to Gar Saxon (Ray Stevenson) to curry his favor. However, when that plan also falls apart alliances quickly shift as Clan Wren unites against the double-crossing Saxon. Given recent events, Sabine's choice to remain on Mandalore is hardly a surprise. However, this certainly leaves a hole in the team which I'll be curious to see how the show attempts to solve.
