Added DiffLines:

* TimeForPlanB: When Ezra and Sabine are caught on the dish and no longer able to modify it, Sabine pulls out some thermal detonators to blow it up, so at least some good comes of the mission. Then Saw shows up with even bigger bombs to do that for them.


* KubrickStare: In a FreezeFrameBonus, Kallus makes one while explaining how they could gather intel after the group complains about how Saw has better intel than them.

Added DiffLines:

** Chopper reunites with Hera after she crash-lands in a Y-wing, from which her astromech didn't survive, just like Chopper's Y-wing pilot died when he crashed into the Syndulla home back during the Clone Wars.

Added DiffLines:

** Mothma tells Ezra that Lothal has to wait in line to be liberated. In the previous episode, Hera says that she had to persuade Mothma to let the ''Ghost'' crew help the Mandalorians.

Added DiffLines:

** Mothma's passive approach in the war against the Empire foreshadows [[HeadInTheSandManagement how she would govern the New Republic]] after they win the war, making the once solid Rebel Alliance into heavily demilitarized New Republic.

Added DiffLines:

* HatesBaths: Chopper is quite disgruntled at the idea of getting an oil bath.


* BackForTheDead: Admiral Brom Titus is back, just in time to have his cruiser blown up when Saw takes out the communications relay.

to:

* BackForTheDead: Admiral Commander (formerly Admiral) Brom Titus is back, just in time to have his cruiser blown up when Saw takes out the communications relay.



** Admiral Brom Titus returns after being last seen in "Through Imperial Eyes". It's also a case of BackForTheDead since Saw blows him up.

* ButtMonkey: Once again, something really bad happens to Brom Titus. And, of course, [[RuleofThree the third time's the worst]].



** Admiral Titus recognizes Ezra and immediately orders full reinforcements. He's clearly not forgotten Ezra humiliating him in both of their former encounters.

Added DiffLines:

** Kanan [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E02RelicsOfTheOldRepublic once again]] serves as a pilot's eyes under weather conditions that render vision poor.


Added DiffLines:

* TimeSkip: Some time has passed since "Zero Hour" and "Heroes of Mandalore" to the point that the crew uniting again is seen as noteworthy. The implication is that Ezra, Kanan, and Chopper left to help Sabine & the Mandalorians right after "Zero Hour" and have spent some time there, as they hadn't been on Yavin 4 yet by the beginning of this episode.


** During their argument, Mon Mothma calls out Saw, saying that if they stoop to low levels, "What will we become?". This is a reference to a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen cut line]] in ''Film/RogueOne'' (used in the first trailer) that Saw was going to say to Jyn.

* CallForward: Saw's hair has grown out to look more like he will in ''Rogue One''. His voice has also weakened since his last appearance, although not as bad as it will be in that movie.

** Kallus's ISB & espionage knowledge comes into play when describing a plan to eavesdrop on an Imperial satellite station. It's also implied he told the rebels who the Imperial officers they've faced throughout the show are, since [[HeyYou Ezra didn't know Admiral Titus's name]] until sometime before the events of this episode.



* KubrickStare: Kallus appears to be pretty mad about something during a mission briefing. Might qualify as OOCIsSeriousBusiness because he's never done this when he was mad before.

* ConfrontingYourImposter: Ezra gets on the comm and tries to stall the light cruiser currently trying to get information from the dish. He's asked for his name and gives it as Brom Titus, and in the worst streak of luck possible, it turns out that the person he's talking to ''is'' Brom Titus.

** Ezra asks Mon Mothma for more support for Lothal. She sympathizes, saying her own world of Chandrila is also suffering under Imperial reign, but so are hundreds if not thousands of worlds across the galaxy and they can't focus on just one even if they did promise his people aid.

Added DiffLines:

* HopelessWar: At this point, the Alliance is not at open war with the Empire, but both sides are locked in a stalemate. Mon Mothma feels they'd be fighting a losing battle against the Empire, as Thrawn has all but broken their morale. From the way things look, progress cannot be made on liberating Lothal. At this point, Mon Mothma believes the best course of action is to play Good Samaritan within reason.

Added DiffLines:

* HugeHolographicHead: Saw addresses the Rebellion in this fashion.
