Trivia

The scene where Admiral Thrawn fights off the TIE defender with his hand blaster is an almost shot-for-shot reproduction of a similar scene from Patton (1970) where the titular character (George C. Scott) fights off a German bomber with just a small automatic pistol. See more »

Goofs

When Hera calls Ezra she uses his Spectre-6 codename but when Ezra signs off he uses Pheonix-6 instead. See more »

Defender vs Attacker
22 October 2020 | by A_Kind_Of_CineMagicSee all my reviews

This episode has lots of fun action.

The TIE Defender is cool, the battles are enjoyable and Thrawn gets a great bit of action and his usual classy villainous dialogue.

Interesting mystical elements coming in about Ezra connecting with a Loth-wolf.

My rating: 8/10.
