Another 'guest star' episode finds the Ghost crew meeting Mon Mothma. And the results are fantastic.
At one point I was expecting a two-parter because so much was crammed into 'Secret Cargo', we even see Jon Vander, none other than Gold Leader.
The space battle is outstanding, one of the best I've seen in Star Wars, even though the Nebula may have been taken from 'The Wrath of Khan'.
Mothma and the Rebels are chased down by Grand Admiral Thrawn who deploys the Tie Defender (its very successful so why it wasn't used more is a wonder). The Rebels escape through the skin of their teeth, using some questionable tactics (are ion cannons that powerful?).
One thing made me think. Ezra was very prolific in the y-wing so maybe he was in the battle of Scarif or even Yavin in that ship?
Just a thought.
This episode ends on a uplifting note however as the rebellion is born.
Best episode since we last saw Vader.
Thank you for reading
