|ShortSummary = Choppers antics cause Ezra and Zeb to forget to carry out an important repair on Hera's second ship, the Phantom. Hera and Sabine set out to an abandoned Republic asteroid base to retrieve supplies provided by Fulcrum, an anonymous informant whom Hera has been in contact with. Sabine voices her displeasure towards Hera's secrecy about their mission, feeling as though neither she nor Kanan trust her. Due to the fuel tank leaking on the Phantom, the two are left stranded on the base, which is infested with deadly fyrnocks. The two work together to survive the creatures long enough for the rest of the crew to rescue them aboard the Ghost, allowing Sabine to overcome her trust issues while Hera tells her to have faith in the growing rebellion. Ezra and Zeb promise to properly fix the Phantom this time.

88Empire DaySteven G. LeeHenry GilroyNovember 17, 20141090.67
Kanan tries to teach Ezra how to use the Force to make a connection to other living creatures. The rebels destroy the Empires new prototype TIE Fighter during a parade celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Empire's creation. Ezra, who was born on the same day, is preoccupied with his feelings towards his missing parents and opts out of the mission. He soon discovers that his parents' Rodian friend Tseebo is wanted by the Empire, and rejoins his friends to look for him. Tseebo is found hiding in the basement of Ezra's old house where Ezra reveals his parents were arrested for making anti Empire radio broadcasts, after which Tseebo had gone to work for the Empire. The rebels learn that Tseebo has allowed himself to be implanted with cybernetics so he could steal information that is valuable to the Empire, though the sheer amount of information he uploaded has affected his mind. The Rebels smuggle him off of Lothal aboard the Ghost. During the ensuing chase led by the Inquisitor, Tseebo regains his senses and reveals that he knows what happened to Ezra's parents.

Learning that Tseebo failed to save his parents from being abducted by the Empire, Ezra lashes out at Tseebo for betraying his parents' trust. Amidst the chase, the Imperials manage to attach a homing beacon on the hull of the Phantom, which Kanan opts to detach from the Ghost in hyperspace with himself and Ezra on board to mislead the Imperials. The two arrive at Fort Anaxes, where Kanan teaches Ezra to forgive Tseebo by admitting his fear of not knowing what happened to his parents. The two manage to tame the fyrnocks by connecting to them through the Force and set them against the arriving Imperial forces, but are cornered by the Inquisitor who injures Kanan . Overcome with anger, Ezra uses the dark side of the Force to summon a giant fyrnock against the Inquisitor, allowing the two to escape. Kanan is worried he has not taught Ezra to resist the Dark Side. Back on the Ghost Sabine gives Ezra a picture of his parents she found in his house. Afterwards, the Ghost crew take Tseebo to Fulcrum, while Hera offers to relay to Ezra what Tseebo knows of his parents' fate.

Concerned with Ezra's previous display of the dark side against the Inquisitor, Kanan brings him to a hidden Jedi Temple on Lothal to be tested for his readiness in Jedi training. Whilst Kanan stays behind Ezra makes his way through the temple alone and is faced with a series of visions showing the Inquisitor killing Kanan and the rest of the Ghost crew. After seeing through the illusions, Ezra is guided by the disembodied voice of Jedi Master Yoda, who helps him admit his fear of being alone again. Kanan also speaks with Yoda about his own ability to teach Ezra. Yoda leads Ezra to a kyber crystal, which he uses to build his own unusual looking lightsaber.
1111Idiot's ArraySteward LeeKevin HoppsJanuary 19, 20151120.53
Zeb bets and loses Chopper to smuggler Lando Calrissian in a game of Sabacc, forcing the Ghost crew to assist Lando with a dangerous smuggling run to get their droid back. However, during the smuggling run Lando trades Hera to crime lord Azmorigan in exchange for a puffer pig which can detect precious minerals for mining purposes, leaving Hera to escape in an escape pod. Humiliated, Azmorigan and his henchmen intercept the rebels on Lothal to take revenge. The crew successfully drive the gangsters away, during which Ezra reveals his lightsaber is a lightsaber/blaster hybrid that fires stun blasts. The Rebels part ways with Lando, though not before Chopper steals the fuel to Lando's ship, which the smuggler concedes as payment for their help.
1212Vision of HopeSteven G. LeeHenry GilroyFebruary 2, 20151130.71
During lightsaber practice Ezra has a fragmented vision of meeting Gall Trayvis, an exiled Imperial senator and rebel sympathizer, and assumes that Trayvis knows about his parents. The rebels receive a transmission from Trayvis notifying them of a secret rally on Lothal, but Ezra receives a tip from Zare Leonis that Kallus is planning to use the senator to lure the rebels into a trap. Following Trayvis's transmission, the rebels find him and save him from Agent Kallus by escaping into Lothal's sewer systems. To Ezra's dismay, Trayvis reveals himself to have been an Imperial spy using his anti Imperial transmissions to identify Rebel sympathisers and claims that Ezra's parents are dead and gone. Having suspected his treachery, Hera outsmarts Trayvis and knocks him out so that the rebels can escape. Although disappointed by the betrayal, Ezra and the other rebels remain hopeful of their cause.
1313Call to ActionSteward LeeGreg Weisman & Simon KinbergFebruary 9, 20151140.60Grand Moff Tarkin visits Lothal to deal with the Rebels. In light of discovering that Trayvis is actually an Imperial spy, the rebels debate broadcasting a message to the nearby star systems about their cause. Ezra adamantly supports the idea, since his parents had broadcast secret messages from their basement for years. Kanan decides to invade the main Imperial communications tower on Lothal. Tarkin has the Inquisitor execute Commandant Aresko and Taskmaster Lyste for incompetence. The Rebels think they have the element of surprise, but they do not take into account the arrival of Tarkin, who has deduced where they will strike. The Inquisitor and Kallus are sent out to capture Kanan alive to earn back Tarkin's trust. When the Imperial forces attack the group at the tower, Kanan instructs the team to leave him and thus is captured. The team is able to have Ezra send a message of hope, urging those living under the oppression of the Empire to fight, before Tarkin orders the tower to be destroyed, ending their broadcast.

After failing to find where Kanan is being detained, Hera is urged by Fulcrum to put the crew of the Ghost into hiding. Against Hera's orders to leave Kanan, Ezra devises a plan to rescue him. He strikes a deal with Vizago for an unspecified favour in the future and learns that due to the destruction of the Imperial communications tower the Empire is forced to send all its messages via courier droids. Meanwhile, Kanan is brought aboard Tarkin's ship where he is tortured by the Inquisitor as the Empire hopes to gain more information about the rebels. The crew of the Ghost substitute a disguised Chopper for an Imperial courier droid so he can access the Empires data on Kanan, eventually learning that Tarkin plans to transfer Kanan to the prison on Mustafar, where according to Hera, Jedi go to die.
1515Fire Across the GalaxyDave FiloniSimon KinbergMarch 2, 20151160.72
The crew of the Ghost seize an Imperial Gozanti-Class Cruiser transport and use a Sabine repainted TIE fighter that Zeb and Ezra had previously stolen to infiltrate and disable Tarkin's star destroyer in the Mustafar system. Ezra frees Kanan using the duct system while Hera, Sabine and Zeb attempt to secure an escape route. Ambushed in the engine room, Ezra and Kanan face the Inquisitor in a final lightsaber duel. Kanan, believing Ezra to have been killed, resolves to never give up and succeeds in destroying the Inquisitor's lightsaber and rupturing the ship's engine. After giving Kanan a cryptic warning about the arrival of a more powerful enemy, the Inquisitor commits suicide. Ezra is alive and escapes with Kanan. Both groups successfully emerge from the doomed destroyer with stolen TIEs. The stolen transport also appears flown by Chopper along with a number of other ships including the Ghost. They all successfully escape into hyperspace. Senator Organa greets the Ghost crew by hologram and Fulcrum, who piloted the Ghost during the rescue, is revealed to be Ahsoka Tano, who tells the group that they are just one cell out of many working for a larger rebellion. On Lothal following the Inquisitor's death, Tarkin introduces Agent Kallus to another agent selected by Emperor Palpatine to hunt the rebels: Darth Vader.
On orders to hunt down the Rebels and especially the Jedi among them, Darth Vader begins an oppressive campaign against Lothal's populace in order to find the group. The Ghost crew starts working with the wider Rebel cells, but are divided between joining the larger network and waging open war on the Empire, or staying out of a large-scale fight. The situation is even more complicated when Minister Maketh Tua, fearing punishment for failing to neutralize the Lothal rebels, tries to defect to them in order to escape Vader, offering to reveal the truth behind why the Emperor wants the planet. However, Vader uses this to his advantage and orchestrates Tua's murder by shuttle explosion, framing the rebels for the act and turning Lothal's population against them. The Ghost crew tries to flee but are cornered by Vader, who injures Kanan and Sabine and nearly kills Ezra before they finally escape. After being smuggled off-world by Lando Calrissian to escape the Empire, the demoralized crew meet up with Ahsoka's rebel cell, but Vader pursues them and proceeds to wipe out most of the rebel ships, discovering Ahsoka in the process. Ahsoka is horrified to learn that Vader is actually her old Jedi master, Anakin Skywalker. She joins the Ghost crew as they vow to join the wider fight against the Empire. Darth Vader later reports Ahsoka's existence to Emperor Palpatine, who issues Vader new orders to dispatch another one of their Inquisitors to capture the crew of the Ghost.
Having barely escaped total destruction of the rebel cell Phoenix Squadron by Darth Vader, Ahsoka Tano sends the Ghost Crew to locate a former military commander somewhere in the Seelos system who has the knowledge of useful hideouts in the Outer Rim. The crew discover the commander to be former clone trooper Captain Rex, accompanied by Commander Wolffe and clone commando Gregor. Kanan is immediately hostile due to the clones' role in Order 66 although Rex claims they removed their brain chips. Ezra negotiates with Rex for information relating to potential bases. In return Gregor enlists them for a hunt by using Zeb as bait to catch an elusive Joopa. With the hunt successful, Rex holds up his end of the deal but Sabine discovers that Wolffe betrayed the Ghost crew's location to the Empire. A skirmish with an Imperial probe damages the Phantom shuttle, the crew is temporarily stranded with the clones waiting for an Imperial assault.
The Empire tracks the Lothal Rebels to Seelos. Admiral Konstantine and Agent Kallus arrive at the Seelos System to capture the Jedi. Rex gives the Lothal Rebels a datachip containing old Republic bases in the Outer Rim. Ezra tries to persuade the clones to join the Rebellion, but Rex and the clones instead offer to delay the Empire so the Lothal Rebels can escape. Agent Kallus commands the clones to hand over the Rebels, but when Rex refuses, Kallus arrives with three AT-ATs. Taking advantage of a sandstorm and the Force, Kanan, Ezra and the clones use their AT-TE's main gun to destroy one of the AT-ATs. Meanwhile, Admiral Konstantine is summoned away by Darth Vader. Instead of meeting him, the admiral meets Fifth Brother, who claims that he will succeed where Kallus and Konstantine have failed. The Lothal Rebels prepare to leave on the Phantom, but Ezra is unwilling to leave Rex and the clones behind. Kanan, Ezra, and Zeb commandeer one of the AT-ATs and turn its weapons on Kallus' AT-AT which Rex destroys with a critical hit. Kallus flees the battle on a speeder. Hera returns to pick up the clones and the Ghost crew. Returning to the Rebel flotilla, the Lothal Rebels and Rex reunite with Ahsoka.
Zeb, Sabine, and Chopper, with Ezra volunteering himself to avoid Kanan and Rex, head out to an old republic medical base in search of vital medical supplies only to be encountered by the Seventh Sister and the Fifth Brother. The Seventh Sister captures Ezra and interrogates him about the whereabouts of Ahsoka Tano while Sabine is also captured by the Fifth Brother. Zeb and Chopper eventually rescue them and they all barely escape the inquisitors and head back to the rebel fleet where Ezra pointedly questions Kanan about the extra inquisitors.
Ezra receives a distress signal from Vizago's ship. Ezra and Chopper decide to see what has happened. When Ezra and Chopper arrive at the ship, they find out that the ship has been taken over by Hondo Ohnaka. They finds out that Vizago is captured inside the ship and Ezra helps him get it back.
Phoenix Squadron tries to break an Imperial blockade in order to provide food supplies to those who need it, but their transport is destroyed and the mission fails. Hera is then tasked go to a planet whose atmosphere is very difficult to fly in to get a ship being built by a Mon Calamari that can break the blockade. After nearly crashing her shuttle, Hera manages to convince the Mon Calamari to let her pilot the ship, called the Blade Wing. With the Blade Wing's firepower, Hera manages to singlehandedly destroy one of the Imperial blockade ships, allowing the Ghost to break the blockade and deliver the needed supplies.
Sabine is sent by Hera to acquire an unknown information courier. She goes with Ezra and Chopper and they find that the courier is a clunky droid. They then encounter Ketsu Onyo, an old "friend" of Sabine's who works as a bounty hunter and is now after the droid. When some Storm Troopers begin to fire at them, Sabine and Chopper steal a ship and go off planet with the droid, unfortunately with Ezra left behind. Ketsu also escapes and after a confrontation with Sabine with her personal ship, captures Chopper and the two meet up to trade the droids. Their activity draws the attention of an Empire ship and the two team up to escape by setting charges on the stolen ship. Sabine is knocked out and almost left to go with the ship, but Ketsu saves her and the explosion allows them to fly the droid to a rebel location and then meet back up with Ezra and Hera before Ketsu leaves on better terms with Sabine.
Ezra and Commander Sato are captured when a new Imperial weapon—an experimental Interdictor cruiser—generates a gravity well strong enough to pull ships out of hyperspace. Hera sends Kanan, Rex and Chopper to rescue them, using a stolen shuttle, stormtrooper armor, and Rex's knowledge of Imperial codes and protocols to infiltrate the cruiser. Ezra and Chopper head to the reactor to sabotage the cruiser, but Rex is captured as he and Kanan escort Sato and his crew to their shuttle. Kanan heads back to rescue Rex and they deploy an escape pod, as Chopper's sabotage causes the gravity well projectors to overload, pulling the other Imperial cruisers towards the Interdictor and destroying it.
Ahsoka informs Kanan that she's continuing her investigation on the Sith Lord Darth Vader, but finding information on him is difficult. In the mean time, she receives word of two sets of coordinates that cross the Imperial net. She heads to look into one of them while dispatching Kanan, Ezra, Zeb, and Chopper to the other. Ahsoka arrives at her location first, a ransacked passenger ship adrift in space, and finds signs of weapon damage all over. The lone survivor, a grandmother, claims "two redblades" kidnapped her grandchild from her and disappeared. Ahsoka informs the team at their destination on a distant planet that the two Inquisitors are involved. Zeb and Chopper locate the Inquisitors' fighters at the spaceport and reclaim the baby stored in one before destroying them, while Kanan and Ezra find the distressed mother of the second child. Chopper takes the first child to the Phantom shuttle while Zeb encounters the Inquisitors on the street after relieving a fleeing droid of the second baby. Kanan, Zeb, and Ezra discover that the children are force sensitive and were targeted by the Inquisitors to ensure they do not become Jedi. They attempt to lose the Inquisitors through a housing block on their way back to the shuttle, but are overpowered by them. Ahsoka appears and easily defeats both of the Inquisitors while the rest escape, using the Force to jump up and join them in the shuttle as it passes overhead. The Rebels escape, but not before one of Seventh Sister's probe droids hears Ezra saying they're going to the planet Garel.
Ezra has a vivid dream about his parents, which he is convinced is a vision which will lead him to discover their fate. Hera and Kanan reveal that they have secretly spent months investigating Imperial prisons, and have heard about a recent prison break. As the Ghost prepares to return to Lothal to investigate Ezra's visions, the Imperial fleet arrives at Garel based on the intelligence from the Seventh Sister's probe droid. Ezra and Kanan escape to Lothal in the Phantom, while the Ghost remains behind to assist the escape of the rebel fleet. On Lothal, Ezra follows a Loth-cat which appeared in his dream to Prisoner X-10, one of the escapees who is the former Governor of Lothal, Ryder Azadi. Azadi tells Ezra that his parents heard his broadcast and it had inspired them to organize the prison break in which he had escaped, however Ezra's parents had been killed during the breakout. While saddened at his parents' deaths, Ezra takes solace in that they heard his message, and Kanan comforts him by telling him that his parents live on inside him.
While Ezra grapples with the news about his parents, the rebels make plans with Senator Bail Organa to secure three much-needed cruisers. Leading the mission is an agent hand-picked by the Senator: his daughter, Princess Leia. Leia meets up with Kanan and Ezra and plans to have the Rebels "steal" her ships so as not to reveal Alderaan's support. However, their plans are thwarted when Imperial security proves to be much stronger than expected. The trio link back up with rest of the Ghost crew, rescuing Azadi from an Imperial patrol in the process. Leia then inspires the crew to come up with plan to steal the cruisers, with Leia distracting the guards while the Phantom provides air support and Azadi disables the gravity locks on the cruisers. The plan is a success, with the Rebels managing to steal all three cruisers while Leia blames the Imperials for their "failure" to protect them. Inspired by the actions of Leia and Rebels, Azadi decides to join the cause.
With the Empire tightening its cordon around Lothal, the Rebels look for a new smuggling route. Hera and Sabine head out to the world of Concord Dawn to request safe passage from the Protectors, the Mandalorian faction that controls the world. However, the Protectors reveal that they have sided with the Empire and immediately attack. Hera and Sabine manage to escape, but Hera is critically wounded. Kanan and Sabine return to Concord Dawn, with Kanan still wanting to negotiate with the Protectors and Sabine wanting to get revenge for Hera. They discover the Protector's leader, Fenn Rau, is being bribed by the Empire. Kanan meets with Rau, revealing that Rau had saved his life during the Clone Wars. Meanwhile, Sabine attempts to sabotage the Protectors' fighters but is caught. She reveals to the Protectors that she is from House Vizsla, and challenges Rau to single combat. Working together, Kanan and Sabine capture Rau, and he agrees to allow the Rebels safe passage through Concord Dawn.
Following a tip from Hondo, the Ghost crew rescues a pair of Lasats from Imperial custody: Chava the Wise and Gron, who both recognize Zeb as Captain of the Lasan Honor Guard. Chava and Gron explain that they are searching for the mythical world of Liresan where the surviving Lasats can find refuge. However, Zeb is reluctant to help due to his guilt over failing to protect Lasan from the Empire. With some encouragement from Ezra, Zeb transforms his Bo-Rifle into its true form and combines it with Chava's staff, revealing Liresan's location in uncharted Wild Space. However, they find their way blocked by a dense cluster of black holes while Agent Kallus pursues them. Trusting in Chava's wisdom, Zeb uses the energy from his Bo-Rifle to create a protective field around the Ghost, allowing it to navigate the black hole cluster safely. On the other side, they find the world of Liresan, which is the true home planet of the Lasats. After dropping off Chava and Gron, Zeb decides to stay on the Ghost in order to find more Lasat survivors to guide back to Liresan.
The Ghost crew is on a mission to capture a fuel shipment from the Mining Guild to the Empire, in order to restock the Rebel fleet's own dwindling supplies. While travelling to the Guild's asteroid refinery, the Ghost encounters a flock of Purrgil, space-travelling creatures whom Hera considers dangerous. However, Ezra manages to establish contact with them through the Force and learns that his crew and the Purrgil actually pursue the same basic goal, if for slightly differing priorities. Upon reaching the Mining Guild base, the crew finds the Mining Guild attempting to exterminate the Purrgil. Kanan decides to raid the base, steal the shipment, and then destroy the base by igniting the rest of the fuel. However, Ezra stops him as he realizes the Purrgil also need the fuel. When it appears the Mining Guild forces will overwhelm the crew, the Purrgil arrive and attack the Mining Guild, giving the crew the time they need to escape with the fuel. As the Ghost flies away, the crew witnesses the Purrgil going into hyperspace, confirming the rumor that they are a migratory species.
In order to provide a safe shelter for their fighters, the Rebels plan to capture an Imperial carrier currently stationed above Ryloth, Hera's home planet. In order to pull the mission off, the Ghost crew contacts Hera's father, the famed Twi'lek resistance fighter Cham Syndulla. However, Cham desires to destroy the carrier as a demonstration of power, and only grudgingly agrees to capture it. Hera later tells Ezra that she and her father are not on the best of terms, as Hera believes Cham is obsessed with the Twi'lek Resistance while Cham believes Hera's faith in the Rebellion is misguided. Piloting a captured TIE Bomber, Hera successfully infiltrates the crew and Cham's team into the carrier, but Cham's team betrays them and moves to destroy the carrier. Ezra uses a Jedi mind trick on the captain to have the crew abandon ship while Zeb and Sabine subdue Cham's men. Hera manages to convince Cham to help her, and they destroy a pursuing Imperial cruiser, achieving the demonstration Cham wanted. After adding the carrier to the Rebel fleet, Hera and Cham reconcile their relationship before parting ways.
The Ghost crew receives a tip about Imperial activity around the planet Geonosis and go to investigate only to find the planet completely devoid of life and evidence of a large weapon having been constructed in orbit. When the crew boards one of the abandoned construction modules, they are ambushed by Agent Kallus. Most of the crew is able to escape back to the ship, but Zeb is forced to take an escape pod. Kallus pursues Zeb into the pod, which gets damaged during their struggle and the pair crash land on one of Geonosis' icy moons. Kallus' leg is injured in the crash, and he and Zeb are forced to work together to survive by fending off hostile monsters and climbing out of the cave they are trapped in. During this, Kallus admits to Zeb that he respects Lasats as warriors, though he has a dislike of them due to his first squad being wiped out by a Lasat. He also reveals he was forced to give the execution orders on Lasan and did not agree with the Empire's decision to exterminate the Lasats. Upon reaching the surface, they activate their emergency transponder. The Ghost arrives to rescue Zeb shortly after. Kallus wishes to take his chances and wait for Imperial rescue rather than be a Rebel prisoner, and both he and Zeb part ways with a newfound respect for each other. Returning to his Star Destroyer, Kallus is greeted rather coldly, even by Imperial standards, and the episode concludes with him sitting in his quarters, deep in thought.
Ezra and Kanan, after facing off with the Inquisitors again, decide it is not safe for them to be around the Rebels while they are being targeted by the Empire, and decide to get advice from Ahsoka. On her advice, the three set out for the Jedi Temple on Lothal, where each have a separate vision; Ezra, of Master Yoda, Kanan, of the Temple Guard who is testing him, and Ahsoka, of Anakin/Vader. As the Inquisitors track the group to the temple and force their way inside, Ezra is told by Yoda to "find Malachor", Kanan is warned by the Guard, who reveals himself as the former Grand Inquisitor, to beware Ezra's temptation of the Dark Side, dubbing Kanan the official rank of Jedi Knight, a rank he was never able to achieve due to the execution of Order 66 and the extermination of the Jedi Order. During her vision, Ahsoka faces her guilt over not being present during the fall of the Jedi, while also accepting the fact that her former master, Anakin Skywalker, has become the Sith Lord Darth Vader. The three escape as the shades of the Temple Guards hold off the Inquisitors. Vader and the Empire's forces arrive at the Temple, as Ahsoka informs Ezra that Malachor is not a person, but a place.
While on a Ghost crew mission to steal fuel, Chopper steals a replacement strut for his original leg. Chopper is separated from the Ghost crew and finds himself stranded on an Imperial freighter. He is eventually discovered by the ship's inventory droid, AP-5, but does not report him upon finding out that Chopper is a veteran of the Clone Wars, just like him. AP-5 complains to Chopper that the Empire does not appreciate his previous role as a strategist, and the freighter crew constantly mistreats him. Chopper removes AP-5's restraining bolt, and the two work together to trap the crew in the cargo hold and detach it from the ship. Chopper makes contact with the Ghost, and AP-5 warns them that the Empire knows their destination and has set up a trap. AP-5 is shot by the freighter captain as he transmits new coordinates, but the Ghost crew manages to repair him by using parts from the leg Chopper stole.
After finally finding a planet that is safe from the Empire, the Rebel fleet lands to set up their base. However, one of their scouts goes missing after setting up a sensor beacon. Sabine and Rex go to investigate when they are attacked by a swarm of Krykna spiders. Sabine is rescued by the Ghost crew, but Rex is captured by the spiders. The crew follows them and rescues Rex, but cannot escape upon finding that the spiders have trapped the Ghost with a web. Sabine discovers that the spiders cannot go near the sensor beacons they had set up, and uses one to ward them away while the rest of the crew cuts the web and escapes. Back at the base, instead of abandoning the planet, the Rebels use their sensor beacons as a makeshift barrier to keep the spiders away. Ezra, Kanan, and Ashoka decide to head for Malachor to find a way to deal with the Inquisitors.
Ahsoka, Ezra, Kanan and Chopper arrive on Malachor – a Sith world long forbidden to the Jedi – in search of knowledge, discovering a cavern containing a Sith Temple amid the site of an ancient battlefield between Sith and Jedi who used cross guard lightsabers. They soon are attacked by a new Inquisitor, the Eighth Brother, who is hunting a mysterious hermit calling himself "Old Master." When Ezra encounters the hermit, he reveals himself to be Darth Maul and offers to help Ezra get into the Temple, aiding him in recovering a Sith holocron. When the other Inquisitors arrive and alert Darth Vader of their presence, Ezra convinces the group to work together in spite of Kanan's fears that Maul is corrupting his student, allowing them to finally kill the three Inquisitors. However, Maul soon betrays the group and blinds Kanan with his lightsaber, revealing his true intentions of making Ezra his apprentice. Although sightless, Kanan dons the helmet of a fallen Jedi Temple Guard and manages to throw Maul from the top of the temple. Ahsoka finally faces Darth Vader - who has cornered Ezra and destroyed his lightsaber - and comes to terms with his identity as Anakin Skywalker as she engages him in a duel, while Kanan and Ezra remove the Sith Holocron. Unable to abandon her old Master, Ahsoka stays within the crumbling temple and stalls Vader while Ezra, Kanan, and Chopper flee the planet and reunite with the Ghost crew. Maul fled Malachor while Vader, who survived the destruction of the temple, walks away as a convor watches from above. Ahsoka appears briefly post-battle entering a temple doorway. As the Ghost crew tries to cope with their losses, Ezra continues to meditate on the Sith Holocron and finally succeeds in opening it.
