Star Wars Rebels returned with a bang this weekend, bringing Saw Gerrera from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story into the series. While he won't be a series regular, the stage was set for him to return for future stories if the tale wills it and Forest Whitaker's schedule allows it.
For now, we head back to Chopper Base, where the Rebels are currently set up. Unfortunately, it seems their secret base isn't so secret anymore, as an Imperial Infiltrator droid, disguised as a broken protocol droid, finds them in the new episode, Warhead, this weekend. When his primary programming reactivates, well, you can see in the clip above that it's not a good situation.
The official description follows, and a gallery of stills is below.
"Zeb and Chopper bring a damaged droid found in the Atollon wilderness back to base, only to discover that the droid is a new Imperial probe programmed to spy on and destroy rebels.
"Catch an all-new episode of “Star Wars Rebels” this SATURDAY, JANUARY 14 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD."
Star Wars Rebels follows the adventures of Hera (Vanessa Marshall), Sabine (Tiya Sircar), Zeb (Steve Blum), and the Jedi Kanan (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Ezra (Taylor Gray), a small crew that's finding their way in the nascent Rebel Alliance a few years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Executive produced by Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni, the in-canon series helps to connect the worlds of the films and the previous animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, with guest appearances so far by characters like Lando Calrissian, Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, Leia Organa, Wedge Antilles, and more.
