STAR WARS REBELS: WARHEAD RECAP
After a two week website overhaul, The Dork Knight is back! First up is a recap of Saturday’s Star Wars Rebels, “Warhead” episode. Warning, spoilers ahead…
After a couple of intense episodes, “Warhead” is a bit lighter in tone with its droid-centric story but does manage to come full circle with its main story arc by the end with Thrawn. While Zeb is in charge of Chopper Base while the Ghost crew is away on an exercise mission, the Empire has launched several disguised infiltrator droids throughout the galaxy in order to narrow down where the Rebels are hiding. Zeb and Chopper discover one such droid. They bring the damaged droid, who has lost its memories, that was found in the Atollon wilderness back to base. Agent Kallus warns them about the nature of the droid they discovered. Not too long after being inside the rebel base, the droids original programming and mission turns back on. It’s in full combat mode and it takes out several other droids before Zeb is able to bring take it down before it was able to transmit to the Empire their location. In doing so, the infiltrator droid activates its self-destruct device.
Now facing the dilemma of either having the Empire go search for their droid or worse yet, having the base blow up, Zeb has AP-5 set a delay in the detonator. The infiltrator droid then travels back to its base ship and once it arrives, it self-destructs. Score another victory for the Rebels. Agent Kallus notifies the Rebels that their plan had worked. But all is not lost for the Empire. As Thrawn said, the Rebels may have won this battle but the war will be theirs for he was able to gather just enough information to narrow down his search for the rebel base. Things will only get worse before it will ever get better for our heroes.
May the Dork be with you,
