Star Wars Rebels ends a solid third season in thrilling, unpredictable fashion
26 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This hasn't been Rebels' best year. A lot of the promises made by the previous season's superlative finale were skimped on: Maul's journey was reduced to three meandering episodes, Ezra's temptation to the dark side was cut off by the season's second instalment, and the overall damage to the Ghost crew was never really felt at all.

Yet, season three has also been home to some of the show's strongest moments. The uneven Thrawn went from lacking to packing courtesy of the superb "An Inside Man", Sabine's entire history came pouring to the surface in heartbreaking ways in "Trials of the Darksaber", the show even had some of its most tense episodes to date with the game changing nature of "Through Imperial Eyes" and the breathtaking visual spectacle of "Secret Cargo".

"Zero Hour", fortunately, sides with the season's strongest episodes. The character moments are nicely written, just look at the way Hera speaks to everyone in the Ghost crew here, striking the perfect balance between authoritative and downright terrified; the action was thrilling, that opening space battle was brilliantly staged, and the AT-AT onslaught felt inescapable; every character was given something to do, something Rebels frequently seems to forget.

Most of all, it was unpredictable. This has been Rebels' darkest season to date for sure, meaning every second of the finale looms over you, impossible to be figured out. When it builds to a sequence of Kanan speeding back to base while a Star Destroyer blasts the planet from the atmosphere, things really could go either way.

"Zero Hour" succeeds as a finale because it takes all the work the season has done in terms of building up the Rebellion and refuses to take an easy way out. Things don't all turn out okay, it can easily be seen as a slaughter. It might not pack the emotional impact of "Twilight of the Apprentice", but this was a very different kind of season to what Rebels gave us last year. It's only fitting that the finale should stick to that.

It's been an uneven season, but a good enough one to keep interest levels high for the show's fourth outing. There's a lot that still needs fixing but, as always, when Rebels is good it's a god damn blast.
