Star Wars Rebels - Kindred

On Lothal, surrounded by Imperials, the Rebels work quickly to get the stolen hyperdrive and TIE Interceptor plans off-world. Things are complicated by the arrival of Thrawn's (Lars Mikkelsen) assassin Rukh (Warwick Davis) whose tracking ability leads the Empire to the Rebels on multiple occasions. Following up from the previous episode, Ezra's (Taylor Gray) encounter with the Loth Wolves will be built upon, although the reasons behind it remain shrouded in mystery. As Hera (Vanessa Marshall) takes to the skies with her precious cargo, Ezra and the rest of the team follow the wolves deeper into the rocks leading them to a destination none of them could have expected.

The show's final season continues to be mysterious about the Ghost's connection to Lothal and what the wolves want/expect of the two Jedi. As Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) suspects, there is something more than just chance that has connected the Rebels to this planet, but what is it? As Zeb (Steve Blum) points out, usually good things happen when things get weird (and that certainly appears to be the case here). As the show moves ever-closer to the series finale I'm left wondering, like Kanan, where this final journey will take them.
