"The Honorable Ones" is tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels. It features Zeb and Agent Kallus being forced to work together to survive on one of the moons of Geonosis.

I just watched this episode and I won't say much but wow - this is by far the best episode the show has ever done. I really enjoyed it, and it really sets up some interesting stories moving forward.

I thought it was kind of cliche actually. I like how they recognize that there are good people and bad people on both sides. Hope they don't forget about it in the episodes leading up.

I enjoyed it. Kallus' story about the massacre on Lasan was especially powerful. Personally, I like that Kallus is starting to question the Empire. He's been a little queasy about its dealings before (like when Tarkin had the Inquisitor kill those two Imperial Army guys), so its good he's started down this path.

I concur. This episode is well done and I love how Kallus is starting to have those seeds of doubt about the empire he's serves. It makes me wonder what his future shall be in the coming episodes...not to mention I swear they are hinting at the you know what *Couch Cough* Death Star *Cough Cough*

Just saw it. I love it. So far my personal favourite episode, especially because it finally introduces a side of the Empire that you can relate to, and a Rebels unique villain that's not one-dimensional. I really look forward to seeing the growth of Kallus as a character.

And yes, Kenico, they are hinting at the Deff Sturr. They even said as much during Rebels Recon.

You're going to be pissed at this answer.

It is on iTunes. It's on Star Wars Rebels Volume 3 in the iTunes store. Your season pass only got you the first half of season 2.

Disney XD does that with their shows on digital download. I don't know why.

Is Rebels less "kiddish" then the clone wars? Out of curiosity.

It leaves behind the darkness/pain of the prequel era and embraces the light/joy of the classic era.

I honestly enjoy Rebels. It's not as good as TCW in my mind yet though simply because it is so new I think. TCW has had time for me to have seen them all a few times and make.the connections.

To an extent. They've hinted, even directly discussed, pretty dark topics like genocide, massacres, terrorism on the part of the Empire, etc.

That said, yeah, it usually tries to stay positive at the end of the day.

Sure. And A New Hope showed the burned corpses of Luke's family and casually killed billions when Alderaan and the Death Star blew up. Just like The Force Awakens casually killed billions when the Starkiller destroyed the Hosnian system. But depicting dark moments in a story with an otherwise positive vibe is a far cry from the dark and tragic tone of the prequel era.

Which isn't a criticism of the prequels, just so no one takes my post the wrong way.

Just watched it. Meh I understand the point of episodes like these but to me I just dont enjoy them that much. I just hope they dont forget about Kallus' doubts and he just goes back to being an imperial drone.

It feels like Star Wars. I liked The Clone Wars, but I felt like I was just watching something Prequel related, just better. Rebels just has that Star Wars feeling that The Force Awakens has. For me anyways.

I just watched the episode. Possibly one of my favorites so far, and it makes me curious on what Kallus will be doing in the future, if he'll keep serving the Empire and brush the doubts away, or if he will see what they are doing is just wrong. I always liked him, he comes off as a good soldier type.
