Star Wars Rebels - In the Name of the Rebellion

The Fourth Season of Star Wars Rebels continues with a pair of episodes that bring back Saw Garrera (Forest Whitaker) and focus on the splintering of the Rebellion. It's too bad that Garrera, the least interesting character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is really the only character from the film that fits within the Rebels universe. The one-note crazy Rebel continues to take chances and put those around him in danger to prove himself right as a true Rebel.

Marking the return of the Ghost's crew to full strength, the first episode centers around a plan to spike an Imperial relay station on Jalindi. When things go wrong, as the often do in these missions, the Ghost is lucky for the intervention of Garrera who shows up to help save Ezra (Taylor Gray) and Sabine (Tiya Sircar) and destroy the relay. The second episode follows the two Rebels on a mission with Garrera investigating a mysterious cargo on its way to a secret Imperial project. While our characters don't discover the truth about the Death Star, more hints are dropped here and a little time with Garerra helps curb Ezra's impatience with how the real Rebellion is handling the fight with the Empire.
