Rebels needs to stop spoiling too much

After watching “Twin Suns” I’m becoming more and more angry at Star Wars releasing trailers for the show. Turns out the whole episode was this huge build up to see Obi Wan… the episode is framed as if you don’t even know if he is going to show up.

Then towards the end when he finally does show up, he says he doesn’t want to fight Maul. It ends in a very quick fight sequence that is powerful, yet disappointing. It is disappointing because we have all known for months that Obi Wan is in this episode and that he draws his saber. Turns out there were pretty much no surprises whatsoever in this episode.

Imagine for a second, that you hadn’t seen a trailer for this episode. Watching it would have been extremely exciting because you would go for the first 2/3rds of the episode not even knowing of Obi Wan was actually going to appear. A proper trailer would have just been Ezra and Maul on Tatooine.

And I’m pretty sure there are no more secrets for the finale next week either. They’ve already shown us so much of that final battle. We have always known that the Mandalorians were going to join the fight. We also know that the Dornean Gunships are present, so we won’t be surprised when new allies suddenly show up.

Literally the only question next week is “Does anyone die?”. Everyone expects Kallus to die. I’m 99% sure Thrawn survives and gets sent out to the Unknown Regions, as evidenced by the books.

Just tired of a trailer having to show you every crucial scene from every episode. I guess all you actually need to watch is next season’s trailers to learn literally everything that happens.

Site is up – finalizing a design at the moment. Kind of liking the way things are for now. This has been a fun experience.   Forums seem to be working well.   Just don’t like that the usernames appear on the right instead of the left.
