A new clip from the next episode of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 has been released online. The scene shows Grand Admiral Thrawn’s (voiced by Lars Mikkelsen) interrogating Hera Syndulla (voiced by Vanessa Marshall).

Episode 10 may shed more light on Hera’s past and her relationship with her family members, especially her father. A preview clip from next episode (see below) shows Thrawn talking about an interesting object that is important to the Rebel.

In the scene, Thrawn looks at an object that belongs to Hera. This object has cultural significance and contains memories of people who were dear to Hera, people who are no longer in this world.

Thrawn doesn’t consider the object as a trophy, like other commanders of the Empire. This object is a symbol for someone who died very young - a person who was important to Hera. The dead person may be someone close to Hera in the past.

The episode may dwell into details about who the character was, and how the death affected the life of the Rebel pilot. Fans have already seen the difficult relationship Hera shares with her father. Now, a new insight into her past may reveal the real reason the father-daughter parted ways so many years ago.

Hera is confident she will retrieve the object currently in the hands of Thrawn. The Imperial Officer, on the other hand, promises to appreciate this “work of art” as its new owner.

Thrawn doesn’t have more to say to Hera, though. The clip shows him handing over the interrogation to Governor Pryce (voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn). The Grand Admiral may keep the Rebel pilot alive to lure the others into a trap. The heroes know this, but they will attempt a rescue anyway in the next episode.
