The series finale of Star Wars Rebels aired tonight and to call it emotional would be an understatement. With Kanan having been killed weeks earlier, we knew the series would offer some devastating moments. Knowing that none of the main characters of Star Wars Rebels appeared in the original trilogy, we've been preparing to say goodbye to these characters almost since the series began. With the series finale behind us, let's look at the devastation the finale brought with it.

Ezra Bridger (?)
After a fateful confrontation with Emperor Palpatine, who attempted to appeal to Ezra by offering him the opportunity to bring his parents back to life, Ezra refused Palpatine and destroyed what remained of the Jedi Temple. The young Jedi then confronted Thrawn on a Star Destroyer while

While holding back Imperial forces in combat on Lothal, Gregor suffered a fatal shot from a blaster, yet held on to life long enough to say goodbye to his fellow Clone Troopers.
Debuting in Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels, Pryce proved to be nearly as formidable a foe as Thrawn, even being responsible for Kanan's death when she ordered Imperial fuel depots be destroyed. As a hostage, Pryce reluctantly helped the Ghost crew infiltrate the Imperial base on Lothal, with the crew ultimately offering Pryce the chance to serve as the leader of Lothal with the Empire eradicated. Pryce's devotions to the Galactic Empire took priority, choosing to instead commit herself to the Empire while the Lothal station exploded.
The assassin Rukh debuted earlier this season, with Thrawn enlisting him to track down the Ghost crew. After multiple altercations throughout this season, it was a fateful battle with Zeb in the bowels of the Empire's Lothal station that Rukh became trapped in the inner workings of the planet's shield generator. When the shield was flipped on, Rukh couldn't escape, resulting in his death.
