I had hoped for two more seasons, but I'm sure one season can wrap everything up pretty well - maybe it will coincide with the beginning of Rogue One. Now my thoughts go to what will be the next episodic show (not counting Forces of Destiny shorts).

Thrawn.

And Rukh.

And (mild spoilers) Thrawn's backstory seems to still involve meeting Anakin Skywalker during the whole Outbound Flight episode. Which means Jorus C'Baoth.

Mara Jade better be re-canonized soon.

Quite a lot to digest in those two 30-minute episodes. Although, the commercials around midnight are just plain weird (expecting viewers to be "under" something, eh Disney?).
Music: not very Star Wars-y, but prevalent; it worked to build tension or emote as characters acted.
Action: definitely taken from various Indiana Jones films. Weaponry was very serious; it's easy to forget that Imperial superweapons are in fact commentaries on nuclear-type technology. Again, it is FAR TOO EASY to dance on the tops of ships and moving vehicles!
Thrawn was great, as always.

Wow: added TIE Defenders (I don't think they'd been featured before), Krennic gets a mention by name, Saw's back, Deathtroopers have voices (?!?), we see inside the Yavin 4 base.
I thought that a light on some building looked EXACTLY like Transformer Shockwave's head.

[edit] BTW, how the heck did I miss the August release of Season 3 on DVD/Blu-Ray? :(

So, Thrawn knows the Rebels by name, and now even by strategies and tactics. That wolf thing was weird. Seeing Wedge was nice (or was that last week?). Interesting to see how the Hera/Kanan relationship is changing/growing. I wonder if there will be a "and one of them won't be coming back" storyline before the final season's episode runs. :(

Well, Thrawn and his "assassin" were in these new ones (or, at least one of them; I can't remember which of the two back-to-backs anymore), and while his sniffing was a bit odd, I knew it was part of his skillset. I still don't understand the loth-wolves.

The kiss finally happened, too.

Rukh and Thrawn are proving to be the effective and efficient Imperials that led to the control of the galaxy. Apparently, Kanan's blindness still allows him to see things fairly easily. The X-Wing/TIE dogfights were excellent; very ANH-esque. And only one episode at a time; what'll we do? :rolleyes:

And will we be seeing Maz, Snoke, or both?

I'd love it if Snoke played into Thrawn's new canon backstory. It looks like Zahn kept the whole "joined the Empire to get their assistance fighting a threat" aspect. Only that threat is no longer the Yuuzhan Vong (who don't exist yet post-Disney). A powerful Force user who eventually winds up taking over the remnants of the Empire, maybe?

There's a problem with my login on the TFG news system or I'd post it there, but instead it's a forums news post for now... From Lucasfilm:

Wow; only three days until it's over. While I like the back-to-back episodes, I miss having to wait and letting it last. It's only a week, people! You will live! There is a spoiler in one of the kidsy books (check the Comics/Books section and the "Other EU" thread, read the white-out text in my most recent post to find out! )

Showing two episodes at a time really send a message that Disney wants to have this show be over and done with. The bulk of the season has been shown this way. I don't think they have another SW show on the docket, right?

Just binge watched the first half of the season....nothing too excited IMO but the 2nd half of the season is always great, so looking forward to that.
