STAR WARS REBELS TRIALS OF THE DARKSABER REVIEW
Season 3 Episode 15:
So this episode of rebels dives into Sabine's origin and a whole lot about the darksaber, and an epic training session between Kana and Sabine.
The episode is about Sabine being trained by Kanan to use the Darksaber so Sabine can use the Darksaber to unite Mandalore.In the episode Ezra teaches Sabine, Sabine gets a few armor upgrades from Fenn Rau, and the episode has an end with Kanan dueling Sabine and he taunts her with negative feelings and Sabine reveals her backstory.
My two favorite scenes from the episode were Sabine revealing her backstory and that duel at the end between Kanan and Sabine.
But Sabine's backstory was insane, she was hired by the empire to build weapons but they used those weapons the destroy her home planet.
The stand out character of the episode for me was Tiya Sircar as Sabine, especially when since she was developed a lot in the episode with her backstory spilling out.And yes, I think that the Bendu spoke to Sabine when she was alone and that's why she came back to training.
I also liked the backstory scene of the Darksaber told by Fenn Rau, the animation was rally cool and now I believe this is the first canon explanation of the Darksaber, that's if I can remember if there was an explanation in the clone wars.But the story is that the Darksaber belonged to the first Mandalorian Jedi.
Overall trials of the Darksaber was a great episode which developed where the story of the season is going and fleshed out the charter of Sabine.I will give this episode a 9 out of 10.I would like the Hera your thoughts on the episode down in the comments below.As always thanks for reading, take care.
