Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla: The Greatest Love Story in ‘Star Wars’?

I say it all the time. I’m a sucker for love stories. Love stories can help intensify the emotional stakes of a film and, subsequently, leave you in a puddle of your own tears if anything sad (or happy) happens. Star Wars is practically one gigantic love story that’s transcended the generations.

First, it was Han and Leia, then it was Anakin and Padme, and now it’s…well now it seems that a love bomb has stricken the Sequel Trilogy, resulting in a bunch of different love-story shipping categories that hopefully will reach a conclusion in The Rise of Skywalker.

However, love has not escaped the other projects in the Star Wars universe, whether we’re talking about Han and Qi’ra’s passionate romance in Solo: A Star Wars Story or Cassian and Jyn’s subtle but just as blatant romance in Rogue One. And now, thanks to Star Wars: Rebels, I have been introduced to a new love story that I previously had little knowledge about and have now been emotionally touched by thanks to a rapid binge-watching session of the series.

And of course, that love story belongs to Jedi Kanan Jarrus and Rebellion leader Hera Syndulla.

My first contact with Kanan and Hera and their beautiful relationship began with the novel, A New Dawn. Continue reading Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla: The Greatest Love Story in ‘Star Wars’?

‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 2’ Review

Before I begin this post I just want to say this. I binge-watched the last three seasons of Star Wars: Rebels in a matter of two days and I am still not fully recovered from the emotional toll the final few episodes of Season 4 placed on me. Even now, as I write these words, I am overcome with emotion to the point of getting teary-eyed because of the tremendously heroic (and heartbreaking) moments that happened in Season 4.

Star Wars: Rebels is the best cartoon I’ve seen since Avatar: The Last Airbender and that is not an exaggeration. This show was so fantastic, from beginning to end, with such a profoundly good story that I’m just overwhelmed by how perfect it was. However, for the next three days, I will share my thoughts on each season and the moments, in particular, that I loved the most. So today, we look back at Season 2.

Okay, the final three episodes of Star Wars: Rebels impressed me but it would be soon very clear that this wasn’t going to be one of the shows that has a good first season but eventually dies down in quality. Oh no, Star Wars: Rebels is a whole other story.

The very first episode of Season 2, The Siege of Lothal, was nothing short of extraordinary, delivering some fantastic action, some eye-widening suspense, and Darth Vader. Need I say more?

It became very clear that our rebels would face far greater forces than they had first encountered in the first season, which only rose the stakes and my overall excitement big time.

And throughout the rest of the season, there are plenty of other moments that stood out and brought me immense joy. Continue reading ‘Star Wars: Rebels: Season 2’ Review

If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 28

Qi’ra shakily rose to her feet, the sword slipping from her fingers as she stared at Dryden’s pale corpse on the floor. Her breaths were heavy as she forced herself to move away from him.

She couldn’t believe she had done it. She had killed Dryden Vos. It was something that she had literally dreamed of for years but now that it was a reality it didn’t feel like she expected. Continue reading If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 28
