On this episode of Collider Star Wars Rebels Recap Show, hosts Kristian Harloff and David Griffin discuss what they enjoyed most about episode 15, titled “The Honorable Ones.” Where will the show go? What fate awaits our heroes?
This week’s outing puts Zeb and the dangerous Agent Kallus center-stage as the two enemies share a cold dark cave on one of the Geonosian moons.
Geonosis was the staging ground for the large-scale battle that introduced us to the Clone Army in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Now the planet is devoid of life after the Imperials decimated the populace while they mined the planet for its precious resources. There is some foreshadowing here, as this is the site of the Death Star’s construction under the careful watch of Tarkin. Hopefully this will not be the last time we see the desert world.
Kristian and David differed on their opinions on whether or not “The Honorable Ones” was a good episode, but both of our panelists agree that the last few minutes were spectacular. Watching Agent Kallus sitting alone in his room while contemplating his newfound respect for Zeb should come into play in future episodes. They are honorable due to their respect for each other as warriors. Both men adhere to a code and that code bonds them together as if they were brothers.
Looking ahead, the Rebels Recap team speculates that Kallus could in fact change sides and work alongside Zeb and his friends, but he may pay the ultimate price for his betrayal. Find out what other insights our hosts have to offer in our weekly recap show above.
