“Twin Suns” brings an end to the long-simmering feud between Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Years in the making, STAR WARS REBELS brings us this moment and leaves us asking a bunch of questions. An episode of this magnitude demands RFR analysis with a critical eye. Joining us to discuss “Twin Suns” are author Adam Bray (“Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia”) and our pal Paul Bateman. We talk about our many likes and many dislikes from this episode, and opinions fly fast and furious. Especially when we consider the true identity of “The Chosen One”. Strap yourselves in for this one because when we start talking about Rebels, it ain’t like dusting crops, boy!
