Rebels Reaction: Zero Hour (S03E21:E22)


Welcome to Rebels Reaction, the show where we recap and react to the latest Star Wars Rebels episode. On this episode we react the Season 3 finale Zero Hour (S03E21:E22)

Zero Hour:

One Word Reactions:

  • Christine: Legitimize
  • Tyler: Hope

The Big 3:

  1. Thrawn lays his trap
  2. Rebels try to escape
  3. Mandalorians and The Bendu to the rescue

Bottom Line:

The Season 3 finale sets up many interesting story lines for Season 4. It wasn't quite what I expected, buy maybe I had unrealistic expectations after Twilight of the Apprentice, the Season 2 Finale. I was expecting an epic battle between the Rebels and Thrawn! Instead, we got a battle in which Thrawn destroyed the Rebels, and if it hadn't been for those meddling kids and their dog! ... wait ... wrong cartoon! What I meant to say was, if it hadn't been Constantine's glory seeking, Sabine and her Mandalorian warriors, and Bendu going all lightning cloud. Nevertheless, we got an admission of feelings between Hera and Kanan, ambiguity with Bendu for further exploration, and the first sense of fear and vulnerability from Thrawn. Lots to think about and look forward to in Season 4! Bring it on!
