I’m one of the few people who likes the Martez sisters arc in The Clone Wars; outstays its welcome, sure, but I liked the characters of Trace and Rafa. I was both happy and relieved to see them in the episode, because I was getting worried we’d see a young Han cameo. I also loved the brief mentor relationship Trace had with Omega, and the fact that the sisters have learned from Ahsoka to be forever conscious about what cause they’re aiding. A powerful lesson and one which I’m sure will impact the Batch going forward.
I don’t see Trace and Rafa being so friendly towards a senator like Bail. I first thought Rafa saying “patch him through” ruled out Ahsoka, but then I remembered how Sabine assumed Fulcrum was a he when Ahsoka first appeared, in a cloak, in Rebels. However, I don’t know why Ahsoka would hide her identity from Trace and Rafa - and unless EK Johnston’s ‘Ahsoka’ novel is being retconned AGAIN, it’s much too early for Ahsoka to be fulcrum. Given that at the end of ‘Victory and Death’, we see that Rex has collected the broken pieces of R4-A7 - and R7 is then fixed and given to Trace and Rafa - I’m almost certain it’s Rex at the end. Very much looking forward to his appearance.
Oh, and also Wrecker. Oh boy. Oh no.
