Synopsis: On a salvage mission led by Captain Rex, the Ghost crew is captured by a unit of old battle droids determined to fight one last battle to end the clone wars.
Review: While the story scenario of this episode is a fairly common one. It has some basis in truth. An example being reports of Japanese soldiers found in the jungle years after World War II had ended.
This time round though it is the battle droids of the separatist who think they are still at war with the republic.
It is one last mission for Rex as a clone soldier and it is all down to his strategy to get Ezra and Kanan through it.
There are some great moments here. One being when Rex chastises Ezra for underestimating the droids.
The actual battles have more on common with the clone wars series than they do with Rebels, which is why it was fun to see Ezra and Kanan doing the stuff that Obi Wan and Anakin would have done in that series.
The resolution of the story was also satisfying because of how Ezra was able to talk enough sense to get the left over Separatist Army to work alongside him and the rebels and escape the Empire, which as Ezra pointed out were the republic in the old order of things.
At the end both parties go their separate ways. But I think it would be a lot of fun to see the stradegy droid and a unit of his soldiers working once again with the rebels. After all they only have a 1% chance of defeating the Empire so they’ll need all the help they can get.
