Star Wars Rebels - Season 2, Episode 5 //
Always Two There Are Episode Guide
This week’s Rebels Recon kicks off at New York Comic Con, where Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about her role in Star Wars Rebels and the importance of female characters in the saga.
In this preview of the Star Wars Rebels episode “Always Two There Are,” Ezra’s worst fears are realized when he deduces that the masked menace before him is a new Inquisitor. Realizing they are overmatched, Ezra and Sabine flee from their adversary hoping to locate Zeb and Chopper, only to find another lightsaber-wielding entity blocking their escape.
After receiving a garbled transmission from Chopper, Ezra leads Sabine and Zeb back to the command center through the ventilation shafts, where Zeb falls behind due to his bulky frame. Once Ezra and Sabine reach the corridors, they see something moving in the shadows, a probe droid and a cybernetic-like figure that Ezra believes to be a bounty hunter. That is, until it unsheathes a ruby-bladed lightsaber.
Quick, agile, and deadly, the Seventh Sister was strong with the dark side and one of the Empire’s elite Jedi hunters — and was dispatched by Darth Vader to find Ahsoka Tano and her rebel friends. She often employed the use of ID9 seeker droids on her missions, and carried the same model double-bladed lightsaber wielded by the Grand Inquisitor. A green-skinned Mirialan, the Seventh Sister’s past — and how she came to enter the Inquisitorious — remains a mystery.
A big, hulking enforcer, the Fifth Brother was among a group of Inquisitors used by the Empire to hunt down any surviving Jedi. Trained in the dark side of the Force, he wielded the same model dual-bladed lightsaber as the Grand Inquisitor, reveling in the opportunity to destroy rebels and Force-wielders alike. Along with the Seventh Sister, he was dispatched by Darth Vader to locate the Ghost crew and bring them to justice.
They may have been small in size, but ID9 seeker droids were dangerous and deadly when used for nefarious purposes. Resembling probe droids, ID9 seekers had a half-hemisphere dome with a threatening red eye. They could hover and crawl on their pincers, imitate other droids, and were outfitted with electro-shock prods that could incapacitate mechanical beings and harm organic lifeforms. The Seventh Sister, one of the Empire’s Inquisitors, employed a small army of ID9s in her efforts to capture rebels and Jedi.
Sabine Wren was a Mandalorian warrior, explosives expert, and graffiti artist -- qualities that came in handy as one of the first rebels against the Empire. Part of the Ghost crew, Sabine used her gift for bomb-making to great effect against the Empire, and would often mark her work with spray-paint tags. Her classic Mandalorian armor was notable for incorporating her own custom stylings, reflecting her creative-meets-rebellious spirit.
Growing up on his own during the age of the Empire, Ezra Bridger relied on his street smarts -- and subconscious Force abilities -- to survive. He became a con artist and small-time thief, doing what he needed to get by on his home planet Lothal. But this reality also hardened Ezra, who by the time he was 14 years old, had little trust for anyone. That would change with his introduction to the Ghost crew, a small band of rebels fighting back against the Empire. Ezra came to believe in their cause, and saw that he could help change the galaxy for the better. And with the help of Kanan Jarrus, he began to learn the ways of the Jedi.
The Inquisitor, the Empire's ruthless Jedi hunter, carried a lightsaber built to destroy. The weapon featured dual modes, crescent and disc, in addition to some deadly surprises. In its crescent setting, the lightsaber had a single red blade; in disc mode, a second blade emerged, and a spin feature turned the lightsaber in a blindingly fast killing tool. The Inquisitor relished combat, and his weapon proved very effective at intimidating, disorienting, and dispatching his enemies.
