Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: When he has a vision from the holocron fusion, he describes what he saw as places he's been to before. Since the vision showed Tatooine as well as Obi-Wan, either Ezra is actually DreamingOfThingsToCome[=/=]DejaVu if these locations are from the movies, some of these locations are visited by Luke and co. outside of the movies (like in the comics or books), Ezra has been to some of these places offscreen, and/or [[RedHerring Ezra is mistaking these places for other places]].

Added DiffLines:

** It's not the only cue he takes from Ren this episode either; he ends up in a rage-filled tantrum and starts breaking things offscreen. [[spoiler:He's also searching for something as Ren was]].

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: [[WordOfGod Pablo Hidalgo]] outright states Star Wars has never been the most scientifically accurate franchise when asked how Kanan survived being in space even for a small amount of time. Though he also mentioned that it is theorised you could survive a little over a minute and Kanan was only outside for about twenty seconds.

* BlindedByTheLight: The two Holocrons release a blinding light as Maul and Ezra share their power. Only Kanan can see through it, as the light momentarily (if crudely) restores his sight.
* ByTheEyesOfTheBlind: Near literally. Kanan can see Maul and Ezra when they're bathed in the light of the Holocrons, while everyone else is blinded by that same light.

** Ezra stole the Jedi Holocron from Kanan and also found his lightsaber in his room too, back in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsSparkOfRebellion "Spark of Rebellion"]]. Hera was with Kanan when they caught him doing that, having discussed the possibility of his Force-sensitivity offscreen and letting him steal the Holocron as a SecretTestOfCharacter to see if he ever opened it.
** Kanan gave the Sith Holocron to the Bendu as a thank-you gift in the previous episode. Now he needs it back.
** Kanan's real name of Caleb Dume is brought up by Maul, who figured it out either during the MindProbe or sometime over the TimeSkip.

** Also implied with Maul's inability to open the Jedi Holocron on his own. Just as a Sith Holocron can only be opened by someone sharing that mindset, one needs to think like a Jedi to open a Jedi Holocron. A lifetime of being a darksider has left Maul incapable of thinking like a Jedi, which is why he needs Ezra's help to get the answer he's looking for.

* HostageForMacGuffin: Maul takes the crew hostage in exchange for the Jedi and Sith Holocrons. Kanan and Ezra go through with it, even though it's pretty clear that he has no intention of honoring that deal.

* PyrrhicVictory: On both sides. On Ezra's side, backing out of the Holocron fusion meant he only got fragments of the information he wanted. Maul, on the other hand, managed to obtain the information he desired, but [[MySkullRunnethOver was likely damaged]] in the process.

** The secret to destroying the Sith . . . is deliberately kept from Ezra, although he's shown visions of where he needs to look. However, like the above, it's strongly implied that this is referring to another citizen of Tatooine--Luke Skywalker [[ForegoneConclusion (who will become successful in that regard)]].

** People who narrowly escape Darksiders ([[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E08TheFutureOfTheForce like Darja, who died afterwards]]) refer to them as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast 'red blades']]. Since it's usually applied to Inquisitors, Ezra and Kanan don't have much of a reason to think otherwise.
