Star Wars Rebels opens its fourth and final season with Sabine Wren (Tiya Sircar) leading Ezra (Taylor Gray), Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Chopper, and several Mandalorians first in a rescue mission to save her father and then in destroying the weapon she designed as an Imperial cadet. Sabine gets much of the internal turmoil and glory here, enough that the final scene of her stepping aside to let another lead Mandalore feels a bit… off. Sure, we know Sabine has no real interest in the job, but given her actions in these two episodes I doubt the other Mandalorians would seem so willing to allow her to step aside in favor on another, even for someone like Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) who has the legacy to rule. While this frees the character up for more stories with the her friends, it also feels like a forced and unnatural detour in Sabine’s arc.

Opening with the sergeant facing the displeasure of Darth Vader, who decides to give the Imperial soldier one last chance to prove his worth (while also remarking about a non-Sith’s use of a lightsaber being highly suspect), the comic follows Kreel and his men back into action with their attack of a Rebel outpost on Horox III.
