Star Wars Rebels: Imperial Supercommandos airs tonight, and we’ve got all the important information you need to know before you watch…
Just yesterday we showed you an all-new clip for tonight’s episode of Star Wars Rebels: Imperial Supercommandos. That clip went along with an earlier teaser that was released for the episode last week when Rebels took the weekend off.
It looks like Ezra and Sabine are going to be facing Sabine’s own people, in the Mandalorians. We think this may be the episode where Sabine will acquire the Darksaber, and she may even have to fight her own mother.
"Sabine and Ezra encounter Mandalorians who’ve aligned with the Empire. They’re outnumbered, outgunned, and have to make a difficult choice…"
In this clip, Sabine, Chopper, and Ezra are trying to escape the Mandalorians using Ezra’s growing Force powers, Sabine’s detonators, and Chopper’s AI.
"Ezra, Chopper and Sabine escape from the imperial mandalorian commandos."
Where to watch: Disney XD
When to watch: Tonight, November 5, at 8:30 p.m. ET
What characters will be featured most: Ezra, Chopper, and Sabine
We may learn a lot more about Sabine’s mysterious past, in this episode. We already know that she briefly attended the Imperial Academy on her home planet of Mandalore. There, she trained alongside a cadet named Ketsu Onyo, but the two became jaded with the Empire, and deserted, to become a bounty hunting team.
Sabine was born into Clan Wren of House Vizsla, a famous and fierce House on Mandalore, especially known for taking extreme measure in order to keep the old ways of Mandalorian warriors. Part of this was the group from The Clone Wars known as Death Watch, led by Pre Vizsla, who owned the Darksaber. This is why we think Sabine, returning to her home and confronting her mother, will wield the Darksaber for House Vizsla.
Here’s some information on the Darksaber, from Star Wars Wiki:

"The Darksaber was an ancient, black-bladed lightsaber. The weapon once belonged to the Jedi Order but was stolen by the Mandalorians in a conflict with the Jedi during the fall of the Old Republic. The Darksaber was passed down, generation to generation, by the ancestors of Pre Vizsla, who held onto the weapon even after the pacifist ideals of the New Mandalorians replaced the warrior ways of Mandalore. The last known Mandalorian to own the blade was Pre Vizsla, the leader of Death Watch during The Clone Wars."
