When some Storm Troopers begin to fire at them, Sabine and Chopper steal a ship and go off planet with the droid, unfortunately with Ezra left behind. Kanan teaches Ezra to be able to move among the spiders without alerting them and retrieve the holocron. With the help of a local resistance cell led by Azadi, they manage to infiltrate the factory disguised as workers in order to gain intelligence on a new weapon the Empire is developing. However, despite their disguises as Imperial scouts, their presence is found out and the alarm is raised.
The Ghost crew is appropriately impressed by her courage. Ezra is suspended, but expresses his gratitude to Kanan for rejoining the action while the rebels learn that the Y-Wings are to be delivered to 's unit. Also, Big Head from Silicon Valley played Mon Mothma's bodyguard. In a larger sense, the plan to save Kallus from Thrawn working out his identity only managed to out him as Fulcrum. It turns out he didn't go that far and went to Thrawn's sparring room. Tseebo is found hiding in the basement of Ezra's old house, where Ezra reveals his parents were arrested for making anti Empire radio broadcasts, after which Tseebo had gone to work for the Empire.

A droid projects a hologram of , who mocks Mon Mothma for her unwillingness to go to any lengths to defeat the Empire, and Mothma angrily responds, refusing to stoop to the violence and extremism committed by Gerrera's cell. However, Thrawn is also present in the factory and locks it down, suspecting rebel spies are sabotaging the vehicles being made there.
In an underground chamber, they find large containers full of poison gas that the Imperials had used to exterminate the Geonosians.

Am I the only one who was expecting the Rebel fleet to jump out of Hyperspace and take out Pryce's Star Destroyers? Saxon shows a recording of the weapon's field test to Thrawn—the weapon superheats an alloy in Mandalorian armor, killing the occupant, but leaving stormtroopers unharmed. Upon being presented with the darksaber, Sabine's mother, Countess Ursa, allows her daughter the benefit of a personal conversation, but is still too fearful of an Imperial reprisal against her people, and her husband held hostage, to join with the Rebellion, and so she decides to sell out the Jedi to Gar Saxon in exchange for Sabine's freedom. Seems kind of weird actually, considering Gold Squadron are like the first every nameless rebel pilots to get individually-designed faces, you'd think giving their deaths a bit more of a visible impact would be reasonable. Tensions ensue between the two, which culminate in Sabine walking away from her training; but after a talk with Hera and a mutual apology upon Sabine's return, Kanan offers her the darksaber, and the training begins in earnest. Ezra even mocks him for it.
The crew refuses, as they believe that Kenobi is dead and the message is a trap set by Maul.

Back on the surface, Thrawn manages to incapacitate the Bendu, who warns Thrawn that it has already foreseen his defeat. Ezra agrees, then points out it will be traced back to Thrawn's office. Hera demands Gerrera transfer Ezra and Sabine, but he jumps into hyperspace. Just before the two groups clash, the white Loth-Wolf reappears and leads them into a hidden tunnel complex imbued with the Force. Unsurprisingly, Kallus answers that question very carefully. She knows he's a Jedi and immediately orders him shot. Ezra reveals himself to be alive and to have gotten a scar during the battle with the Inquisitor and escapes with Kanan.
In the meantime, he's an attorney and moonlights as an Emergency Medical Technician in Maryland. However, the crawler's captain manages to shut down the vehicle and raise the alarm, and as Sabine works to reactivate it, Kanan and Zeb discover a number of slaves in the hull, among them Vizago, who was sold to the Guild by the Empire. Humiliated, Azmorigan and his henchmen intercept the rebels on Lothal to take revenge.
