Star Wars Rebels is in the midst of its remaining season, and the time has come to start out worrying in regards to the fates of the main characters who by no means appeared within the unique Star Wars trilogy and/or Rogue One. At this level, there are only two Rebels characters who’ve been confirmed to outlive the top of the present, and there are large causes to fret about what’s in retailer for the Jedi particularly. The midseason finale might have revealed what’s in retailer for Kanan in an sudden means: through closed captioning.
Within the Season four midseason finale, Hera was injured and trapped in a metropolis with Imperials closing in. Kanan determined to try to rescue her, and took off on speeder bike to search out her ASAP. He was stopped on the highway by one of many mysterious Loth-wolves with sturdy connections to the Pressure. In no temper to decipher Pressure messages whereas his girl love was in peril, Kanan tried to brush the wolf apart, and eventually demanded to know what it wished. The wolf stated just one phrase: “Doom.” Uh-oh.
In fact, this is not the primary time a Loth-wolf has seemed straight at Kanan and spoken a phrase that appears like “doom.” In earlier episodes, nevertheless, the wolf was truly saying “Dume” in reference to Kanan’s identify again earlier than Order 66 wiped out the Jedi. Kanan revealed that he was as soon as generally known as Caleb Dume, and the closed captioning confirmed that the wolf was saying “Dume.” Within the midseason finale, the wolf had one thing totally different to say, in line with the closed captioning. Have a look:
The Loth-wolf appears to be saying that doom is in retailer for Caleb Dume, and that doesn’t bode properly for Kanan in his mission to rescue Hera. By the top of the episode, Kanan appeared oddly at peace, regardless of Hera nonetheless being in peril. It was as if Kanan had some information of the longer term and he knew how he deliberate to play his half in what was to return. If that is the case, Kanan may very well meet his “doom” destiny within the midseason premiere.
Hera is at present in an excessive amount of hazard, having been captured by Imperials and brought away. Kanan would completely give himself as much as save her. His certainty on the finish of the episode might have come from his intention to save lots of Hera by giving up his personal life. It would not be the primary time Kanan sacrificed himself for the individuals he loves on Lothal, and the Empire might have discovered to not take Jedi alive anymore. Kanan and Ezra have escaped a whole lot of sticky conditions.
If Imperials get their sights on Kanan, they could wish to take him out much more than Hera. Who is aware of? Perhaps Kanan might merely leap in entrance of a blaster bolt aimed toward Hera. Each are in appreciable hazard as of the top of the midseason finale. We all know that Hera is unquestionably surviving Rebels due to appearances in Rogue One and Forces of Future, which signifies that Kanan’s destiny is the one in query.
Star Wars Rebels has already gotten fairly darkish in Season four. The midseason finale featured the deaths of just about a whole squadron of insurgent pilots, and they failed their objective to take out the TIE Defender manufacturing facility. The present has been building to a major tragedy these days, and since Kanan is neither seen nor talked about within the unique Star Wars trilogy… properly, the writing could also be on the wall. Good outdated Kanan might be dying sooner quite than later. Then once more, perhaps the Loth-wolf means a special type of doom for Kanan. It will nonetheless be a doom of types if he was by some means certain to the Pressure on Lothal whereas his family members might go away to proceed combating the Empire.
