The rebels receive a transmission from Trayvis notifying them of a secret rally on Lothal, but Ezra receives a tip from Zare Leonis that Kallus is planning to use the senator to lure the rebels into a trap. Bail Organa notes that without the containers, there is insufficient evidence for the Senate to act, but the pictures the crew had taken can be used as propaganda to further the Rebel cause. Jai goes into hiding while Zare remains at the academy to continue his search for Dhara. This episode demonstrates a near perfect balance between swashbuckling action, heartwarming moments, entertaining banter, and devastating loss. Tensions ensue between the two, which culminate in Sabine walking away from her training; but after a talk with Hera and a mutual apology upon Sabine's return, Kanan offers her the darksaber, and the training begins in earnest. However, their plans are thwarted when Imperial security proves to be much stronger than expected. The Ghost crew and Commander Sato return to rescue Mart, and barely manage to escape Thrawn's ambush.
However, the Protectors reveal that they have sided with the Empire and immediately attack. Hera and Sabine head out to the world of Concord Dawn to request safe passage from the Protectors, the Mandalorian faction that controls the world. After seeing through the illusions, Ezra is guided by the disembodied voice of Jedi Master , who helps him admit his fear of being alone again. However, the cargo ship is dangerously close to a heavy storm, making any salvage attempt hazardous. Kanan manages to interrupt the process. Returning to his Star Destroyer, Kallus is greeted rather coldly, even by Imperial standards, and the episode concludes with him sitting in his quarters, deep in thought. He described himself as being pleased with the season as a whole and extremely happy with the finale.
Meanwhile, Thrawn observes the entire event, and impressed with Hera's ingenuity, decides to let the rebels escape. Sabine, Ezra, and Chopper try to flee from Gar and his men, and are assisted by Fenn who helps them escape, but not before Sabine defeats Gar in hand to hand combat. Once it realizes that it is inside a rebel base, the droid's original programming kicks back in and it adopts combat mode, and cannibalizing the base's droids to repair itself, the infiltrator proves a tough nut to crack, especially since this battle is confined to a storage area filled with explosive ordnance. Kanan heads back to rescue Rex and they deploy an escape pod, as Chopper's sabotage causes the gravity well projectors to overload, pulling the other Imperial cruisers towards the Interdictor and destroying it. The two arrive at Fort Anaxes, where Kanan teaches Ezra to forgive Tseebo by admitting his fear of not knowing what happened to his parents. Maul flees Malachor while Vader, who survived the destruction of the temple, walks away as a convor watches from above. Rex congratulates Ezra for doing what no Senator, Clone, or Jedi ever could: convincing clones and battle droids to set aside their differences.
The Imperials are swiftly defeated and Pryce is captured, but Ezra reminds everybody that the battle to liberate Lothal is just beginning. Ahsoka finally faces Darth Vader — who has cornered Ezra and destroyed his lightsaber — and comes to terms with his identity as Anakin Skywalker as she engages him in a duel, while Kanan and Ezra remove the Sith Holocron. Saxon, however, immediately goes back on his word and denounces the entire Clan Wren traitors to the Empire. Unable to abandon her old Master, Ahsoka stays within the crumbling temple and stalls Vader while Ezra, Kanan, and Chopper flee the planet and reunite with the Ghost crew. Sabine, Wedge, and Hobbie are captured and Rake is killed while Ezra and Kanan are forced to retreat.
When Rukh shows up, Kanan eventually deals with him in a rather uncivilized fashion of force pushing him off the edge, before the pink-pimpernel Death Trooper's have them pinned down, leading to Kanan and Hera escaping via the manual flying contraptions. When Thrawn learns of Iron Squadron, he sends a larger force. Both the Rebels and Hondo's crew manage to narrowly escape the cargo ship before it plunges into the storm, and while the Rebels were able to retrieve most of the proton bombs, Hondo was unable to secure any of the treasure. With Thrawn's fleet gone, the Rebels proceed with the plan to launch and destroy the command center. Sabine inadvertently connects them to the main channel on an approaching light cruiser, forcing Ezra to impersonate an Imperial officer—unfortunately it is the very officer who is commanding the cruiser, Brom Titus. Upon awakening, he finds that Kenobi has rescued him and Chopper.
Ahsoka appears and easily defeats both of the Inquisitors while the rest escape, using the Force to jump up and join them in the shuttle as it passes overhead. As the Rebel's are far from safe from the explosion, Kanan courageously sacrifices himself, using the force to hold back the explosion and send the rescue craft to safety. Just as Ezra and Sabine pick them up, Pryce orders her troops to open fire on the fuel tanks, causing an explosion. However, that moment brings up a minor complaint of mine. Note: This episode takes place immediately after Empire Day.
In an underground chamber, they find large containers full of poison gas that the Imperials had used to exterminate the Geonosians. Archived from on March 4, 2015. The crew successfully drive the gangsters away. No one is even posing the question as to if he survived the end of episode 10. Rukh overhears the plan and warns Thrawn, who tasks him with disabling the planetary shield.
The rifles are sold to buy food and information from black market dealer and Cikatro Vizago. Commander Sato explains that Iron Squadron used to be led by his brother, but he was killed in combat, leaving the squadron under the leadership of his headstrong nephew Mart. Refusing to believe this, Thrawn attempts to kill the Bendu personally, but it disappears before the shot could even hit it. Kanan is immediately hostile as soon as he found out about them being clones due to their role in Order 66 although Rex claims they removed their brain chips. Ezra negotiates with Rex for information relating to potential bases. Knowing that their only chance is to send someone out to summon the rest of the Rebel fleet, Commander Sato sacrifices himself by crashing his carrier into one of the Interdictors, giving Ezra a window to escape.
