< 1 day ago
Welcome to another Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships Sabers and Scoundrels. This week, SCubedPod focuses on the latest episode from season three of Rebels: "Trials of the Darksaber." Kanan finally reveals the recovery of the Darksaber to Fenn Rau. Now, they must convince Sabine to wield the weapon and unite the Mandalorians behind her. This is a somewhat in-depth review that contains spoilers. Sabine's Past The guys begin the discussion by reviewing Sabine's past. Once pressed while training, Sabine is overcome by emotion as she spars with Kanan. What does she reveal about her family? Also, does this explain why she is so connected to the crew of the Ghost? With the revelations of this episode, can she unite the people of Mandalore? Kanan the Teacher Training a student is hardly a new concept to Kanan. After all, he trained Ezra since season one. However, he has difficulty with training Sabine. Why is this and what is the difference between training Ezra and Sabine? Also, what does Hera contribute to his breakthrough? Ezra's Role As usual, we discuss the development of the crew. This episode provides a multiple opportunities for that discussion. For example, Ezra takes an active role in Sabine's saber training. Another topic of conversation is Ezra's sibling rivalry with Sabine. Also, Ezra helps Sabine come to a realization about family. What is it he said? Was it effective? In addition, Hera contributes to Sabine's training from afar. Bonus Silence Fools! After the discussion of "Trials of the Darksaber", Dennis, and Taxus conduct another bonus edition of "Silence Fools!" to answer an email related to last week's episode "Warhead."
