In Review: Star Wars Rebels – The Holocrons Of Fate

This episode saw the welcome return of Maul who is again voiced by Sam Witwer.

Synopsis: When Maul takes the crew of the Ghost hostage, Ezra and Kanan must recover an ancient Sith artefact to save them.

This episode saw the welcome return of Maul who is again voiced by Sam Witwer. No longer a Sith Maul has an agenda of his own, which is not clear. But it involves him using both the Sith and Jedi Holocrons.

In order to get them. He holds the crew of the Ghost hostage and uses them as leverage so that Ezra and Kanan can go after the Sith Holocron for him.

This leads both Kanan and Ezra on a unique little side adventure where they receive a little guidance from Bendu who is once again voiced by the awesome Tom Baker. 

While working together Ezra and Kanan re-establish balance in their relationship of Jedi and student.

I really liked this episode. Even though narratively it was pretty straight forward. But I loved the interplay between Ezra, Kanan and the Bendu as well as seeing Ezra reluctantly having to work with Maul in order to access the information of both Holocrons. The Jedi holocron can only be accessed by a Jedi or an apprentice. Meaning that Maul would not have been able to have opened both Holocrons. It would always have been a two person gig.

By the close of the episode we are left with a few questions. Such as what did Maul learn. And who is he after. The hint of two suns suggests Tatooine. But surely that isn’t the only planet in the ‘Star Wars’ universe that has two suns.

I guess in order to find out. We’ll just have to keep watching.
