For those who may have fallen a few episodes behind, you can quickly catch up with the episodes available for streaming on the DisneyXD website. For those lacking the time, here's the rough setup: The events in the series take place between the films Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.While the Rebels have managed to elude the Imperial forces searching for them, the Force-sensitive Inquisitors continue to hunt Kanan and Ezra at every turn. In a desperate ploy to gain an edge over the Inquisitors, Kanan, Ezra, and Ashoka visit a ruined planet seeking knowledge of the Dark Side, but finding old friends and new enemies. Confrontations ensue, from which no one will emerge unchanged.
As a meeting with her old master seems increasingly inevitable, here's a video recap of Ahsoka Tano's history in case you (like I) still haven't finished Clone Wars.
Disney XD held a screening event this week at the Walt Disney Studios Theater, at which most of the major "Star Wars Rebels" cast and crew made an appearance.
While I can't tell you much more about the episode or the discussion that followed without spoiling it, I can say that the finale has a lot of action and game-changing events that set up some interesting stories to be told in Season Three. Be sure to watch tonight, Wednesday, March 30 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Disney XD!
