Rebels Season 2 Ends and So Does…???

With Maul appearing to mentor Ezra, who already has shown a Dark Side connection, a double dose of Master and Apprentice could take place. With a potential Ezra vs. Kanan and Vader vs. Ahsoka, there's only one character out of the four we know has to survive. Things are sure to be tense this episode [...]
