Thanks to a solidly compelling conflict between two of its main characters, Star Wars Rebels pulled off a shining example of character development and continuity foreshadowing with "Out of Darkness," while also managing to situate the drama in an interesting setting with a real challenge.

With a rushed execution that failed to do justice to several promising elements of this Dark Times setting, "Breaking Ranks" fell short of what Star Wars Rebels has consistently shown it can do. The series needs to pick itself up after this stumble so that "Breaking Ranks" becomes just a blip on the radar.

This was the "Landing on Point Rain" of Star Wars Rebels, the twenty-two-minute declaration to anyone considering dropping the show that Rebels has both tremendous potential and the ability to execute on it. Kanan and Ezra's flaws are wonderfully explored, a famous Jedi saying finds a broader meaning, and an exciting new villain is introdued.
