Kanan, Chopper and Ezra return with Sabine to Mandalore to fight the Imperial occupation of that planet, only to find that they’ve walked into a trap designed to deliver Sabine into the hands of the Saxon family. With the help of Mandalorians and Jedi alike, Sabine escapes the trap, only the discover that her father is being moved to another facility for public execution. Sabine and her ragtag group of followers, now including Mandalorians from House Kryze, intercept the convoy transporting her father. A fierce fight ensues, but he is rescued – just before a sound very familiar to Sabine heralds a new tragedy about to strike.
