    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    So I didn't see a thread for this so apologies if it's been done. Then again I'm not even sure if we can get a whole series of pages out of this topic given there will be only one appearance. Still though. Sheev is back.

    Honestly I should have expected it and thought about it but Dave kept throwing us off by saying he's uninterested in the Rebellion so the chances were slim of him being involved. Then again as Dave said now Ezra has become a problem and I guess now it's got to a point where he's such a problem and may discover something only Palpatine can step into end this. Which means either Ezra goes off and we never hear from him or he dies at the Emperor's hands. There's no way you walk away from Palpatine with no consequences.

    And of course since it's the end they would pull out all the stops for this one off by bringing the one true Emperor himself back that being Ian McDiarmid. Nothing against Sam, Ian A and Tim as well as others who have filled in but if you're going to do this then McDiarmid is the way to go.

    Welcome back Sheev.

    It looks like he will do the same Sith magic thing he did during the Yoda arc in season 6. The trailer shows him appearing in hologram too.

    I really hope he's there in the flesh and it's not a force illusion. He's a hologram (a holocron projection?) at the end of the trailer so it's up for debate.
    I think the very last shot of Ezra and the three wolves is a confrontation. Ezra alone stands no chance, but with those mysterious force wolves? I don't think it would diminish The Emperor if he is pacified to have an evil chat with Ezra or he tries to escape, not risking a fight.

    Now that you say that about Palpatine being a Force Projection that would make sense given we now know about that from TLJ but hopefully he'll be in the flesh. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I don't think it will be a direct confrontation because it would be more believable for Ezra to escape if he's not truly there.

    Well, that seems to be his thing, right? Especially since Vader didn't turn out as he foresaw.

    This is what Filoni says about Palpatine's appearance in Rebels.
    http://ew.com/tv/star-wars-rebels-d...er-for-the-final-episodes/a-destiny-fulfilled
    Palpatine Appears

    Unless… the Emperor has his say. “Really, the ultimate challenge for everybody in everyday life is the temptation to be good or evil, or do nice things or unkind things,” Filoni says. “These temptations pull on us for what we want versus what’s better for the group.” Those are the natural temptations Emperor Palpatine will exploit in Ezra.

    The Final Boss

    Ian McDiarmid is reprising his role as the twisted, evil overlord. “The big bad in this time period of Star Wars is The Emperor,” Filoni says. “He is the one running everything and the evil of the land. We dealt with his lieutenants, and Vader is a lieutenant.” This is the ultimate source of darkness in the galaxy. “He’s a sophisticated villain,” Filoni adds. “That makes you more worried for Ezra.”

    Insidious

    “I wanted something more insidious than perhaps lightsaber play,” Filoni says of bringing The Emperor into the series. “The Emperor can appear so many different ways. He can seem frail at times or powerful at times. He’s the ultimate deceiver, and he plays on your own wants and greeds.”

    You think that Palpatine finally heard that this Loth-rat (Ezra) is claiming to be his nephew?

    Lando can also come. Brom Titus can come back from the dead and join too.

    Maybe he'll bring Jabba with him, to teach Ezra a lesson about his aliases.:p

    Maybe Jabba will project himself via the force? Jabba is obviously force sensitive.

    We already know how Ezra connects to the bigger picture.

    Ezra is Snoke.

    I think you are the first person to say that Snoke, DJ, and Ezra were the same person.

    I find the thread title's lack of Sheev most disturbing.
