Звездные войны: повстанцы | Star Wars: Rebels - 4 сезон
Hera and her assault team arrive at Lothal and begin to battle their way past the Imperial blockade, while the Ghost crew on the ground sabotage the anti-aircraft batteries to allow an unhindered attack on the TIE factory at Lothal's capital. However, with Thrawn coordinating the Imperial defenses, the Rebel attack force is annihilated, with only a few survivors - Hera, Chopper and pilot Mart Mattin - managing to reach the surface and regroup safely. As Hera's group attempts to slip out of the city under constant assailment by Rukh, Kanan returns to the capital to look for her, only to be stopped by the Loth-Wolf, and he asks it what he should do. Hera manages to open an escape route, but is captured by Rukh before she can use it. Mart and Chopper are then picked up by Kanan and brought to the rebels' hideout as the Loth-Wolf watches.
After the Lothal rebels have taken shelter in the ancient settlement, they discover a Mining Guild ore crawler stripping Lothal's surface for raw materials passing by, and decide to hijack it to establish contact with Hera and the Yavin rebel base with its communicators. However, the crawler's captain manages to shut down the vehicle and raise the alarm, and as Sabine works to reactivate it, Kanan and Zeb discover a number of slaves in the hull, among them Vizago, who was sold to the Guild by the Empire. Working together, the rebels and the former slaves allay an incoming Imperial patrol investigating the distress call and prevent the captain from destroying the crawler. In the meantime, Hera, unwilling to wait any longer, inspires rebel command to conduct an immediate assault on the factory where the TIE Defender is being produced, and after communication is established, Ezra's team agrees to coordinate the impending assault from the planet's surface.
Ezra, Jai Kell and Zeb move to secure the TIE Defender's hyperdrive before the Imperial recovery team can find it, but Thrawn has already dispatched an additional helper for the search: Rukh, an assassin and unerringly accurate tracker. As Zeb takes the hyperdrive to safety, Ezra and Jai end up being chased by Rukh; they elude him with much difficulty, but a tracking beacon Rukh attached to their speeder leads Governor Pryce to the Ghost crew's hideout. While Hera and Chopper evacuate to Yavin with the stolen flight recorder, the rest of the rebels face the incoming Imperials to cover their retreat. Just before the two groups clash, the white Loth-Wolf reappears and leads them into a hidden tunnel complex imbued with the Force. Walking mysterious paths, the rebels inexplicably find themselves in a hidden settlement halfway across the planet which was visited in ancient times by the Jedi who erected the secret temple on Lothal, and discover that the Loth-Wolf is a messenger of the Force, here to tell them of a more sinister goal pursued by the Empire.
The Ghost crew scouts an Imperial air field where the new TIE Defender is being tested. Sabine hits upon the idea of stealing its flight data recorder to obtain the information the rebels need about the TIE, but unfortunately Grand Admiral Thrawn appears to witness a combat demonstration of the new fighter. Cornered, Sabine steals the fighter to get herself and Ezra to safety, but due to an installed kill switch the fighter ends up stranded in the hills of Lothal. While hiding the TIE's hyperdrive for later retrieval and then trying to evade the Imperial search parties, Ezra catches several unexpected glimpses of a white Loth-Wolf, a rare predatory species. Eventually, the Loth-Wolf appears before him, sends Sabine to sleep and carries them back to their friends, only to disappear as mysteriously as it appeared, leaving Ezra with a strange parting message to ponder over.
The rebels are informed by Ryder Azadi that the Empire is building a new and improved version of the TIE Defender. Ezra and the Ghost crew depart for Lothal, using Vizago to smuggle them in because the Empire has severely tightened its grip around the planet and nearly crushed the local rebel cell. They find the environment ruined from the Empire's activities, and that some acquaintances like Old Joe were arrested and executed for aiding rebels. Identified and chased, Ezra's crew finds unexpected aid from Ezra's old Academy friend Jai Kell and Azadi himself, who ferry them to safety, but are sorely disappointed to hear that the Rebel Alliance is unable to execute a liberation strike on Lothal. Ezra tries to stay optimistic by telling them that they can destroy the TIE Defender factory by working together, though Azadi remains skeptical due to having witnessed the capabilities of the new TIE Defender.
Gerrera convinces Ezra and Sabine to aid him in discovering the secret weapon he is convinced the Empire is working on. They board an Imperial cargo shuttle disguised as a regular civilian spacecraft, and discover a group of prisoner engineers from the planet Coruscant who are being shipped to Jedha for an apparent project. Gerrera insists that this is more evidence of a secret weapon. They also find a giant kyber crystal, which they plan to haul out of there with the prisoners. Chopper attempts to get the prisoners out of harm's way via escape pod, though they are stopped by the Empire. When the plans to get the crystal off of the ship fail, Gerrera blasts it so that it will explode. He calls Two-Tubes to pick him up, and Ezra and Sabine are rescued by the Ghost crew after destroying a massive Star Destroyer. The engineers decide they want to join the Rebel cause, and they head back to Yavin IV.
Ezra, Kanan and Sabine arrive on Yavin 4 to join the main group of the Rebel Alliance. Hera's squadron also arrives, having barely survived an Imperial ambush, which Bail Organa attributes to an Imperial communications relay on Jalindi. A droid projects a hologram of Saw Gerrera, who mocks Mon Mothma for her unwillingness to go to any lengths to defeat the Empire, and Mothma angrily responds, refusing to stoop to the violence and extremism committed by Gerrera's cell. She sends the Ghost crew on a mission to intercept the relay's transmissions. Sabine inadvertently connects them to the main channel on an approaching light cruiser, forcing Ezra to impersonate an Imperial officer. Unfortunately it is the very officer who is commanding the cruiser, Brom Titus. Sabine calls for Hera to pick them up, as they have been seen. Before she can do so, a U-Wing piloted by Gerrera arrives, picks up Ezra and Sabine, then bombs the relay dish, destroying it and the cruiser. Hera demands Gerrera transfer Ezra and Sabine, but he jumps into hyperspace.
Sabine is relieved to find her mother and brother have survived the Empire's attack. As more Imperials arrive, Sabine and her allies are rescued by Clan Kryze, while Bo-Katan and Ezra destroy the pursuing TIE fighters. Saxon shows a recording of the weapon's field test to Thrawn, which superheats an alloy in Mandalorian armor, killing the occupant, but leaving stormtroopers unharmed. At Bo-Katan's camp, her men confront Sabine for her role in the creation of the weapon which she named the Duchess, after Bo-Katan's sister, Satine. Sabine convinces Clan Kryze to join her in a raid on Saxon's Star Destroyer to destroy the weapon. During the assault, Sabine is incapacitated by Saxon, who orders her to adjust to weapon to its full power. She does so, but she instead recalibrates the weapon to target Imperial armor, which stuns the Imperial troops. Sabine slashes the weapon with the Darksaber, breaching its power core and destroying the Star Destroyer. At the Kryze camp, Sabine gives Bo-Katan the Darksaber, making her the true leader of Mandalore.
Sabine, Kanan and Ezra lead Clan Wren in a raid on a Clan Saxon outpost to rescue Sabine’s father who is being held captive by Clan Saxon on behalf of the Empire. The outpost turns out to be a trap to capture Sabine but they are rescued by Lady Bo-Katan of Clan Kryze. As Bo-Katan should have become ruler of Mandalore after her sister, Duchess Satine, was murdered, Sabine attempts to give her the Darksaber but Bo-Katan refuses to accept it. Sabine’s father is to be moved to the capital city for a public execution so Sabine plans to rescue him as he is being transported there. They attack the convoy and succeed in rescuing Sabine’s father, Alrich Wren, who turns out to be as much of an artist as Sabine. Sabine is contacted by her mother just as the Empire reveals a new weapon, the sound of which Sabine recognises. They rush to the site of the attack and find every Mandalorian warrior vaporized. Sabine is devastated as she realises they were killed by a weapon she personally designed for the Empire.
