    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels 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.

    Interesting. I can't quite figure out if they mean it'll be available online at 12:01 on Monday or 12:01 on Tuesday, so for now I'll assume it's the former and enforce the spoiler rules accordingly.

    I think they mean 12:01 after the 9pm airing, considering they say it "premieres" at 9pm alluding to 12:01 being the following morning.

    Don't think anything will top all the Mandalorian action for me. Regardless, I'm looking forward for what's to come.

    This has the potential to be nothing short of amazing.

    Well we'll see. They did have on demand and streaming available before the TV airings for season 3, so there is precedent for that.

    so this is up at WatchDisneyXD? if so I am going to watch in a few!

    most likely you can only watch episode 1 of the story arc then after it airs at 9PM tomorrow night you can watch episode 2 in the story arc.

    I just watched them on xfinity OnDemand, and both were there, just separate. But this confirms that it's 12:01 am Monday streaming premiere, which is pretty much what I thought.

    As for the episodes,
    I definitely liked the increasingly unhinged Saw. I'm guessing hearing about Jedha here prompts him to set up shop there.

    Where on Xfinity is season 4? For some reason only 1-3 is showing up for me.

    I also am experiencing the issue with part 2 on the watchDisneyXD site. Oy, first Discovery's All Access issues now this? My Sci-Fi Sunday is turning into Malfunction Monday.

    Still waiting on XD to get the right part 2, but after seeing the first
    I feel like this is the best realization of Saw's potential as a character that we've seen yet. That argument with Mon was fantastic.

    Same for me on the app. I've tried it several times, with no success.

    Judging by the first episode, though, this promises to be a great two-parter.

    Amazing first episode with absolutely great
    Kanan and Hera moments. I've never liked Mon Mothma so I was not surprised ;) Still don't like her. But I love Hera's doubts and all she did in this episode. Ah and Kallus. Hot Kallus indeed ;)

    Overall first episode was a step up from the last two and the second episode was fantastic.

    loved everything with the Kyber crystal and the prisoners further fueling Saw’s madness and building threads to R1. It was so good I could overlook usual Ezra/Chop shenanigans and the (surely) rebels trope of ending the episode with a destroyed...destroyer.

    Hot Kallus is one of the most surprising fan movements to have emerged from Rebels - it's glorious. I wonder if his new allies objectify him?!

    I absolutely loved those 2 episodes.
    - I'm kinda tired of infiltration episode in Rebels but I really liked this one for some reason.
    - Chopper "kind" droid? [face_laugh] Let's just they changed their mind very quickly. Did I say that I love Chopper?
    - Kanan being then "eyes" of Hera in the first episode. So sweet.
    - They're really showing Sabine and Ezra a lot in this season and judging by thee trailer there's more of those 2 together. I'd like to see Zeb have a little more focus now since this is the last season. Hopefully there will be one Zeb centric episode like they did for season 2 and 3.
    - Speaking of Zeb, it seems like he and Hera were on Yavin before the rest of the crew.
    - R1 references : Two Tubes, Director Krennic mention, U-Wing, Jedha system
    - RIP Brom Titus and Captain Slavin. How many villains they killed now?
    - Ezra and Kanan meditating on Yavin. I like quiet moments like this.
    - Mothma vs Saw. 2 ways to lead a rebellion. So much think about.
    - Ezra hearing the kyber crystal singing, the same way he found his crystal.
    - No Thrawn. Good. No need to overuse him.
    - Kallus new model look great.
    - Hera being protective of Sabine and Ezra.
    - Chandrila and Corellia references.

    Another mediocre two-parter...

    + Nice dynamics between characters
    + Some good dialogues
    +\- They kill a few useless imperial officers from previous episodes...
    - Death Troopers is back. And they are effective as regular troopers...:oops:
    - As always - another empire defeat.
    - Another flawless infiltration. Empire still in a process of inventing a surveillance camera
