I'm looking forward to the remaining episodes. I think it's wise to end a series while it's not become trite yet. I think it's a little strange to think of the Emperor making an appearance, even facing off vs Ezra if the second half of the season trailer is to be believed, when we never heard of him before.

I assume that most or all of them will die in some heroic mission, and that these Rebels, the ones we've been watching for some years, their sacrifice will have been pivotal in allowing the events of A New Hope to take place. When I saw Rogue One and how writers tied that into the franchise I was somewhat disappointed because I had hoped that would be how they tied up loose ends in Rebels, with Bridger, Jarrus, Sendula, Wren, the big alien, and Chopper, all dying to make sure the plans for the Death Star got to the rebellion. Maybe they will end up delaying the Vader's fleet so Leia's ship can get the plans before she gets captured and before the droids take the escape pod to Tatooine..

He is heard speaking to Vader in "The Siege of Lothal" but his presence in the serie has been indeed pretty scarce.

True. I meant Ezra though, that Ezra's basically nobody because he presumably doesn't survive the purge because he's not around in the original movies and he was a new character, as far as I know, introduced just in this show. The trailer for the 2nd half of this season though, on youtube now, shows Ezra literally facing off with the Emperor, flanked by three Loth-wolves, presumably about to engage Siddious in combat. This somewhat strains suspension of disbelief but it's all sci-fi so I can take it.

The only one who really needs to die is Kanan, they could find some creative way to get Ezra out of the way if they wanted to.

it is also implied that that fight happens in a Mortis-esque force nexus, so all bets are off really. I suspect there is a lot more going on there though than just Ezra vs Sidious. These trailers are rather good at the misinformation game.

Agreed. It doesn't seem to be a battle in the real world like the battle on Malachor was. I guess it is possible that Ezra becomes strong enough in the Force for the Emperor to seek him out... perhaps even determine if he is a Skywalker.

But season 1 hinted that there was something on Lothal other than just the raw materials and the factory. The Emperor had a special interest. Perhaps it was a cache of Kyber crystals that he needed for the DS, perhaps a force nexus, perhaps a dark side entity, I don't know. I am guessing the Loth-wolves know what the emperor has/wants and are trying to lead Ezra there first.

Lothal is actually a shell for Mortis, I'm copyrighting this stupid theory right now!

I've been under impression since I read Thrawn that the mining of precious minerals (specifically the Doonium, but also Dolovite and some others) has been the real reason why the Empire is on Lothal, to strip the planet off its resources (as they did with the Legacy Worlds) for the building of Death Star, and the expansion of Imperial Fleet. I've never considered about that there would be something of interest to Force there, aside from the Jedi Temple.

I know I hope this becomes true - but still worried especially about Wolffe and Gregor.
