There will be a cat-and-mouse game between the heroes and the Empire in episode 7 and 8 of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4. The preview video of the next two episodes tease how the Empire is just one step behind Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) and the others in Lothal.

After acquiring details about the new TIE Defender, the heroes will find it difficult to escape the planet. Their only option is to find a way to communicate with Alliance leaders and send the technical specifications of the new prototype.

The problem the heroes will face is the fact that the Empire is just one step behind them. Lothal is in complete lockdown, which makes it easier for the Empire to track down any detractors.

According to the synopsis of episode 7, a mysterious Imperial agent will be able to track the hidden base of the Rebels. A preview video posted on YouTube shows the heroes coming under heavy attack. The only way to escape is by following the native animals of the planet.

The Loth-wolf will be back in the next episode. The mysterious animal hates the Empire and has helped Ezra before. The heroes will rely on this animal once more.

A sneak peek scene shows a conversation between Kanan (voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.) and Hera (voiced by Vanessa Marshall). The Jedi will realise it may be the will of the Force that keeps bringing them back to Lothal. He will stay on the planet to find more answers.

Episode 8 of “Star Wars Rebels” season 4 will focus on the heroes attempting to contact the Rebel command. They will pirate a mining vehicle that has long range communication equipment, but the Empire will once again spoil their plans.
