Star Wars Rebels: Iron Squadron

Ezra and Sabine team up to tame a rogue hotshot pilot and his crew who recklessly risk their lives in a fight to defend their home world from Imperial occupation.

Synopsis: Ezra and Sabine team up to tame a rogue hotshot pilot and his crew who recklessly risk their lives in a fight to defend their home world from Imperial occupation.

Review: The team ends up having to save three reckless teens from themselves as they bit off more than they can chew, but they don’t count on one of the Iron Squadron’s crew being the rebellious nephew of Commander Sato.

As far as story goes. This one is pretty by the numbers but no less fun for being so.

It’s quite funny seeing Ezra give the kid that talk about it not being whether you fight. It’s more about how you fight. It shows how much growing Ezra has done.

The episode also allows us opportunity to see Grand Admiral Thrawn whose steely blue skin and calculating demeanour betray nothing, but we do learn that he and Commander Sato have a past, which I’m sure will get some explanation somewhere down the line.

As always the space battles were really cool and I liked how the Iron Squadron employed the use of their Cargo containers as bombs. Its most likely the sort of tactic Han Solo would have used had he found himself cornered.

This episode was definitely on the lighter side of things, which was probably needed given how serious and dark the season started, but I am hoping that we get more of Ezra’s struggle between the darker and lighter side of the force as the series progresses.
