    Not sure if anyone else has been doing this but I've started watching the show again from the beginning in preparation for the last few eps. I haven't watched any of Season 1 or 2 (apart from TOTA) since they first aired so it's almost like new for me again.

    Watched the first 5 episodes yesterday and it's nice seeing the crew more light hearted and jokey before things start getting serious. At the time the show started I remember having to adapt to it coming off of TCW and it's very dark later episodes but I appreciate the humour a lot more now and I've found myself laughing at it quite a bit.

    Is it safe to assume you have the previous seasons on video? I'm surprised that, being it's the final season, Disney XD hasn't brought up all of the previous seasons On Demand.

    Yes I have them on DVD. I got S1 and 2 for my birthday last year and S3 for Christmas but hadn't got round to watching them so I figured now would be the perfect time for a recap.

    I also forgot to mention that it's interesting seeing Kallus as a villain again. He's disgusted that Saw Gerrera tortures prisoners later on in S4 but in S1 we see him kick a Stormtrooper to his death merely for commenting "first Jedi you've ever seen sir?".

    Yeah I do not think that the crew took older Kallus into account when they made him turn hero.

    Well if he survives than how do you explain his absence throughout the OT; much less Rogue One?

    Thrawn is not involved with either of the Death Stars, and Vader has at least the authority of a Grand Admiral in ESB, so Thrawn is not needed in that story.

    In all fairness, you could say something similar to Ahsoka. It's a good assumption that after Malachor she's not going to have anything to do with the Rebellion moving forward.

    Easy solution is that he's banished to the outer regions, posted somewhere far away for a failure or special mission, etc. Very similar to in the original Thrawn Trilogy. He can then reemerge after ROTJ, just like the original books, sometime in the 30 year gap between movies. I'd love a new canon version of that storyline. No contradictions if they handle things this way. It would be a complete waste to kill him now.

    I've never really liked that notion that if a character wasn't in the OT then they must be dead. To me it's such a narrow way of looking at the universe, especially considering how big the Galaxy is and how wide scale the conflict between the Empire and the Rebellion was.

    Well at least for the force sensitive/lightsaber-wielding beings on the good side, there was always Yoda's remark to Luke that he'll be the "last of the Jedi" that people always seem to bring up.

    Wow, the scenery is breathtaking. The crew really went a long way since season 1.

    I don't really get this thinking. It's basically saying that if a character isn't in the OT then they shouldn't exist at all. That new stories are forbidden to have new characters.

    For the Jedi characters I understand that sort of thinking.
