The Occupation

Star Wars: RebelsAfter a distress call from Ryder on Lothal is cut short, Mon Mothma assigns Ezra to return to his home planet to gather intelligence on the strength of Imperial forces there. Hera and the rest of the Ghost crew offer backup, but Mon Mothma warns that she can spare no other resources to help if the mission goes bad. When they arrive, Ezra sees for himself that Lothal and its people have been strip-mined and enslaved by the Empire. He decides that the time has come to remain on Lothal to fight to free his home…but the overwhelming presence of the Empire makes that a dangerously easy promise to keep.
