Episode 16.5: The Wynkahthu Job
7 days ago
Welcome to another episode of Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships Sabers and Scoundrels. This week, SCubedPod focuses on episode seven of season three of Rebels: "The Wynkahthu Job." Hera reluctantly agrees to allow the crew of the Ghost to assist Hondo salvage an Imperial cargo ship in orbit around Wynkahthu. However, he concerns grow when she discovers Azmorigan, the vile gangster, is involved. When Chopper activates the ships power, the ship's sentries activate. Then things go from bad to worse as the droids attack. This is a somewhat in-depth review that contains spoilers. First, Dennis and Taxus discuss the sentry droids. Dark Forces fans might recognize these droids. Did the classic video game inspire the droids of this episode? In addition, are these Legends droids worthy representatives in the new canon? Next, how does Ezra Bridger handle a perceived slight from Hera? In early episodes from this season, Ezra struggled with the influence of the dark side. However, in recent episodes, he appears to have overcome that temptation. Is he resentful that Zeb was put in charge of the salvage operation? Will this cause a rift in the team? Or, is this just a distraction for this episode? In addition, why are the Rebels pursuing proton bombs? This isn't the first episode where the Rebels tried to acquire these bombs. Are they part of a larger plan? Will viewers see them again? After that discussion, Hondo may be a fan favorite, but is he used well in this episode? Has he contributed to Rebels in a meaningful way? What does the future hold for him. Finally, each of the guys share some of their favorite moments from the episode. Azmorigan is a presence in this episode, and he has at least one comedic line. Dennis and Taxus discuss this and more. Thanks for listening to this Scoundrels S
