Gathering Forces

Star Wars: RebelsThe Ghost beats a hasty retreat from Lothal, with the Inquisitor leading Imperial fighters to it. A tracking device is fired toward the Ghost, but instead attaches to its shuttlecraft, the Phantom. Realizing that both the tracker and their sensitivity to the Force are leading the Inquisitor to them, Kanan and Ezra depart in the Phantom to set a trap for their pursuers, a trap that will require Ezra to learn new skills with the Force. But when he finds himself trying to protect the fallen Kanan from the Inquisitor, Ezra takes a step toward the dark side.
