*This post is part of a link up started by Jenmarie over at Anakin and His Angel. Each month she has a different galactic topic for us to explore and write about. This month we’re talking about our favorite scene from Star Wars: Rebels Season 4!
*WARNING: Star Wars: Rebels Season 4 spoilers ahead*
I was definitely late (very late) to the party when it came to Star Wars: Rebels. I don’t have cable, so I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay the money to buy the show on Amazon for a kids’ cartoon. But after watching The Last Jedi, I decided to give The Clone Wars a try (I just really needed something to tie me over until the DVD release!). It was on Netflix, and I figured if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t be out any extra money. And then if TCW was good, I would purchase Rebels
I’m so glad I tried it. The Clone Wars started out a little slow (and the animation was a little weird to me at first), but I ended up loving it! (And becoming a major fan of Ahsoka Tano in the process.) Since I knew Ahsoka appeared in Rebels, I decided I would pay for the show. And just like with TCW, I am so glad I did!
I binged watched all 4 seasons (except for the last part of season 4) in about 3 weeks. I laughed and cried all the way through it. I loved watching Ezra grow as a Jedi, seeing Sabine find out who she really was inside, laughing at Chopper’s sarcastic beeps, watching Zeb build relationships with the crew, seeing Hera’s compassion, and watching Kanan grow as a mentor. Seeing Ahsoka become an even stronger person than she was in TCW was also amazing!
It’s hard to pick a favorite scene in season 4 because it was such an emotional roller coaster. I can still barely think about Kanan’s death without getting that emotional jerk in my heart. What really got me was right before he died, when his eyes became clear again. He could physically see Hera one last time. (Sorry, is someone cutting onions here???) Honestly, I felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest.
Fast forward to the finale and seeing Ezra sacrifice himself like he did made the tears flow again. But that last scene with Sabine and Ahsoka? I squealed with delight. And the kicker? And seeing little Jacen Syndulla, Spectre 7? I about fell out of my chair. That moment was the icing on the cake for an incredible run for this show.
So yes, this is definitely more than one favorite scene. But I think it’s impossible to narrow down to just one favorite!
Now that Rebels is over, I feel like I’ve lost some very good friends. (But the good news is I now own the entire series so I can visit them anytime I want!) But I’m really looking forward to see what new shows and ideas Lucasfilm and Disney come out with in the future! I would LOVE to see something with Sabine and Ahsoka, or even seeing Jacen as a member of the Resistance!
I’d love to hear about your favorite Rebels moment in the comments! Or let me know what Star Wars show you’d love to see in the future!
We will each be challenged- our trust, our faith, our friendships, but we must persevere, and in time, a new hope will emerge. May the Force be with you, always.
