In Review: Star Wars Rebels: Protector of Concord Dawn

Kanan and Sabine show themselves to be so much more than we ever thought.

The most recent episode of Star Wars: Rebels entitled, “The Protector of Concord Dawn” was quite simply an exciting and action packed episode that also served to give some insight and back story to two of the series central characters; Kanan and Sabine.

But even more important was the episode’s focus on a fan favorite aspect of the Star Wars universe, the world of the Mandalorians and Concord Dawn, which just so happens to be the home world of Jango Fett himself.

The Mandalorian focus of this episode centered around a character named Fenn Rau as played by Kevin McKidd, with a potentially very cool mini Star Wars Easter egg as it pertains to Sabine’s origin.

The episode reveals that Sabine is actually the daughter of a female member of the Death Watch, which speaks directly to Bo-Katan, who is tied to Obi Wan Kenobi, which makes you begin to wonder all sorts of interesting things.

Likewise we also see that Kanan owes the leader of the Mandalorians a debt of gratitude as it turns out to be Fenn Rau who saved Kanan and his original Jedi Master during the Clone Wars from certain death.

The episode sees Kanan perform an amazing job of being a rebellion Jedi Leader and weaves a fun tale of action and adventure, while potentially bringing Fenn Rau into the fold of rebel sympathizers.

This was a great episode that sees the shows Protagonists grow as a team, while also serving to solidify Kanan and Sabine as troubled yet noble spirits who are not afraid to work and open themselves up to who they really are on the inside, while at the same time trying to rid the galaxy of the evil empire!
