The search for the last remaining Kyber Saber Crystal turns into a race between the Freemakers and Naare (Grey Griffin) and her bounty hunter friends. Containing several nods to The Empire Strikes Back, “Showdown on Hoth” includes the Freemakers finding the abandoned Rebel base and running into a baby Wampa (whose angry mother will help secure the group’s escape). The episode also offers another appearance of Durpin (Richard Kind) by Plumestriker (Jeff Bennett) demoted to one of the most desolate locations in the Empire.
Never underestimate the power of the Dark Side. Vader has been defeated by Cylo-V and trapped within the mechanical body which the cybernetic genius has completely shut down. But just because the Dark Lord of the Sith is down doesn’t necessarily mean he’s out.
