With Star Wars Rebels having just completed its first season, the animated extravaganza has proven itself to be a vital component to the boundaries of the overall Star Wars continuity, which has been redefined by the new franchise overlords at Disney, building to the upcoming sequel epic, The Force Awakens. However, as those of you who caught the finale know by now, Ezra, Kanan and the rest of the elusive crew of the Ghost may collectively let out a cheesy scream of “nooooo” when they realize who the Empire has just appointed to handle them: Darth freaking Vader. And frankly, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
WARNING: Some SPOILER topics ahead, which may be problematic for some who have yet to catch the finale. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!
