The two-part episode “Ghosts of Geonosis” works to weave Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story more tightly together with an appearance by Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). Heading back to Geonosis for information about how and why the Empire wiped out an entire race, the crew of the crew discover Gerrera and a lone surviving Geonosian. As we see in Rogue One, Saw is more determined and ruthless than the other Rebels introduced over the series. It will be interesting to see if we see more of this radical element of the Rebellion this season.

The first of the standalone Star Wars movies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set just prior to the events of the original Star Wars as a struggling Rebellion learns about the newest Imperial weapon capable of destroying an entire planet. Just as memorable for what it keeps from the Star Wars template as what it chooses to change about the formula, Rogue One offers no opening crawl, no screen wipes, and the unnecessary need to name every planet shown on screen in subtitles (something George Lucas’ original films allowed the dialogue itself to deal with).

Given fan reaction to the character’s role as a supporting character in Marvel’s recent Darth Vader series, you can’t be too surprised to see that rogue scientist Aphra has earned her own ongoing comic. Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 is a little more tongue-in-cheek (and less murdery) than I expected for starring a sociopath, a pair of murder droids, and a bloodthirsty Wookiee. Set after the good doctor faked her death, the first comic centers on Aphra’s struggles to pay off what appears to be a rather lengthy list of debts. Stealing an archaeological find, Aphra hopes to sell off the item for a tidy profit only to discover that history has finally caught up with her.

Shared visions and unanswered questions bring Ezra (Taylor Gray) and Maul (Sam Witwer) back together on Atollon. Traveling to Dathomir, Maul uses the Force magic of the Nightsisters to complete the visions that were interrupted once before. It seems the answers to both their questions leads to Tatooine as the show teases the possibility of an appearance by Obi-Wan Kenobi and the first animated appearance of a young farm boy destined to bring down an Empire.
