* SecretTestOfCharacter: Just like his plan in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E03HerasHeroes "Hera's Heroes"]] was about figuring out Hera and seeing what makes her tick, this time Thrawn is trying to learn more about Jun Sato. And like the battle on Ryloth, Thrawn does it by threatening his homeworld and surviving family.
-->'''Thrawn:''' Commander Jun Sato. I wondered what it would take to motivate your return to Mykapo.
-->'''Sato:''' And now you know, admiral. Until we meet again.
** It's implied he was also testing Admiral Konstantine, seeing how the admiral handled himself in a combat situation with fewer resources than usual (a light cruiser and a pair of transports, rather than a squadron of Star Destoyers). Unlike Sato and the rebels, Konstantine botches the mission badly.



** Squadron is typically used to refer to a squad of starfighters. The Iron Squadron is actually just a crew (a triad/quad specifically) of one ship. Sato reveals that his nephew named it after his late father's military unit. {{Lampshaded}} by Sabine.

** In-universe, Mart constantly refers to anything bigger than a TIE Fighter as a "Star Destroyer", ranging from military transports to cruisers, much to the ''Ghost'' crew's annoyance. Fortunately he got the habit thoroughly scared out of him when Grand Admiral Thrawn showed up in an actual Star Destroyer, dwarfing Mart's uncle Sato's own carrier.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Iron Squadron, after joining Phoenix Squadron, are never seen or mentioned again for the rest of the season. The events of the season finale make this all the more jarring.

* BreatherEpisode: Despite the presence of Thrawn (who doesn't show up that much in this episode anyway), this episode is relatively more calmer than previous episodes.

** It seems that Sabine's got the Iron Squadron ship up and running... and then the engines and lights flicker off again, because power is being rerouted to the guns and the shields.

** Mart freaks out when a light cruiser with two transports and some [=TIEs=] show up, once again mistaking the light cruiser for a Star Destroyer. He still insists on fighting it, though, while his crew wisely understand that they're outmatch.

* UnwittingPawn: Thrawn never intended for Konstantine to succeed in the mission, he just wanted the situation to get bad enough for Sato to pull a rescue and confirm a theory he had about his weak points, and of course, wanted to see Konstantine make a fool of himself.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: Konstantine has a mine attached to Mart's ship and allows him to broadcast a partial distress signal, reasoning that the Rebels will attempt a rescue. When they do, he'll detonate the mine and take out both Mart and whoever tries to rescue him. It fails to work out since it's an obvious trap and the Rebels act accordingly.]
