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.

With "Fighter Flight," the Star Wars Rebels creative leads demonstrated their commitment to building three-dimensional characters and situating them in a complicated, struggling team. More specifically, Rebels is building a realistic and exciting partnership between two very different rebels that promises to yield interesting results in episodes to come.
