  • Maketh Tua: Ah, Grand Moff Tarkin. I am honored by your visit to Lothal.
  • Tarkin: My visit is hardly an honor, Minister.
  • Maketh Tua: I-I was surprised to learn you were coming.
  • Tarkin: And I, too, have been surprised by what's been happening on your little backwater world.
  • Maketh Tua: [Chuckles] If you are referring to the insurgents, I---
  • Tarkin: In the absence of Governor Pryce, you have had a single, simple objective, Minister to protect the Empire's industrial interests here. Interests which are vital to our expansion throughout the Outer Rim. But instead of protecting those interests, you have allowed a cell of insurgents to flourish right under your nose. Am I correct?
  • Maketh Tua: [Clears throat]
  • Tarkin: And, Agent Kallus, have you just stood idly by while this rabble have attacked our men, destroyed our property and disrupted our trade?
  • Agent Kallus: I have exhausted every resource to capture them, sir. This group has proven quite elusive.
  • Maketh Tua: It's said their leader is a Jedi.
  • Tarkin: Ah, yes. Let us not forget the sudden appearance of a Jedi, as if leaping from the pages of ancient history. A shame we don't have someone who specializes in dealing with them, otherwise our problem might be solved. Minister, have you ever met a Jedi?
  • Maketh Tua: No. I--
  • Tarkin: I actually knew the Jedi not from the pages of folklore or children's tales, but as flesh and blood. And do you know what happened to them?
  • Maketh Tua: Well, there were rumors--
  • Tarkin: They died. Every last one of them. So you see, this criminal cannot be what he claims to be, and I shall prove it.
  • Ezra: Aren't we headed the wrong way?
  • Kanan: Don't want to lead 'em back to the ship. Follow me.
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: They're making for town. Order our units to split up. We'll box them in.
  • Kanan: Gotcha.
  • Pilot Trooper: Stay on 'em. I'll cut 'em off.
  • Ezra: [Clearing throats] Told you that would work.
  • Sabine: You're finally getting the hang of this. There's hope for you yet.
  • Alton: Senator Trayvis, now that you've recommitted yourself to the Empire, - will your followers do the same?
  • Gall Trayvis: Most will, Alton. These were good people who simply wanted to make the Empire a better place peacefully. But I'm afraid these insurgents have twisted my message into something violent and frightening. Of course, I can't abide that. So I'm personally offering a reward for their capture--
  • Zeb: [Scoffs] Karabast. Shut it off.
  • Hera: Still makes me sick to think that Trayvis is working for the Empire.
  • Ezra: Every time we win, we lose.
  • Kanan: Well, I have a plan that might just even the score. If Trayvis can do it, we can do it too.
  • Zeb: What, we're gonna send out some kind of inspirational type messages?
  • Kanan: Exactly.
  • Hera: Exactly.
  • Sabine: Um, I don't get it.
  • Ezra: Yeah, Kanan. What are you thinking? We can't just send a signal. The Empire would track it in half a second.
  • Kanan: Not if the signal comes from one of its own towers.
  • Sabine: [Snaps fingers] Ah. Now I get it.
  • Ezra: You-You want to take control of an Imperial communications tower, which is pretty much impossible, and then you want to use it to send a message to the people of Lothal?
  • Kanan: Not just Lothal. One of those big towers can reach a few systems.
  • Ezra: That's a crazy plan.
  • Kanan: That's why you like it.
  • Ezra: And what would we say in this message?
  • Kanan: Something the Empire never says the truth.
  • Chopper: [Chitters]
  • Kanan: We have to let people know what it's really like out here. Now, are you in?
  • Ezra: Count me in
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: Commandant Cumberlayne Aresko and Taskmaster Myles Grint reporting.
  • Tarkin: Gentlemen. Sit. I understand you have experience dealing with these insurgents.
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: Oh, yes, sir.
  • Tarkin: And your efforts have been less than successful?
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: [Stammers] W-Well, I, uh I wouldn't say--
  • Tarkin: Commandant, if your efforts had been successful, we would not be having this little chat. Now, when was the last activity reported?
  • Myles Grint: Sir, we, uh, responded personally to an attack last night in one of the outlying towns.
  • Tarkin: And the details of this attack?
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: Uh, nothing of note. The insurgents stole some supplies and escaped on speeder bikes. No casualties.
  • Tarkin: Ah, but you see, Commandant, there is something of note in that report "no casualties." Your rebel cell is more principled than others.
  • Myles Grint: Others, sir? You mean there are other cells?
  • Tarkin: Cells, factions, tribes Call them what you will. They lack the one thing that would make them a credible threat to the Empire unity. While your cell seems uninterested in violence, it does present a specific threat the Jedi.
  • Cumberlayne Aresko: We have encountered him, sir, and he lives up to their reputation.
  • Tarkin: Oh, I doubt that very much. But I am not concerned with his skills as a warrior.

I am concerned with what he represents. Or perhaps I should say, I am concerned by what you allow him to represent by failing to stop him hope. There are whispers of this alleged Jedi in the streets. In time, such whispers might spark belief in something other than the strength and security of the Empire. And that, gentlemen, is something I cannot have. Make no mistake. From now on, failure will have consequences. Agent Kallus, you will dispatch probe droids to every known location of insurgent activity on Lothal. We will discover the whereabouts of these criminals and we will make examples of them.

  • Kanan: There it is. The Empire's main communications tower on Lothal. It routes comm from every Imperial operation on the planet, including the Empire's Holonet broadcasts.
  • Sabine: I got bucketheads on the perimeter and at least three anti-ship batteries around the base. Not an easy trip to the front door.
  • Kanan: Don't underestimate yourself.
  • Ezra: Sabine, let's be optimistic. Say we get to the front door.
  • Sabine: What then? I-I could upload a data spike into the central computer and have that transmitter operational in I don't know, five minutes?
  • Ezra: I said be optimistic.
  • Sabine: Five minutes is optimistic.
  • Kanan: Three is better.
  • Sabine: Hey. You can have it good or you can have it fast.
  • Kanan: All right. Scan us a holomap and let's get out of here. I don't like the look of that thing.
  • Sabine: Imperial probe droid.
  • Ezra: Does it see us?
  • Sabine: Not yet.
  • Ezra: How can you tell?
  • Sabine: Because we're not dead.
  • Imperial Probe Droid: [Speaking droid language]
  • Kanan: We need to move.
  • Ezra: Um, hate to mention this, but where are the bikes?
  • Kanan: Next to the road.
  • Ezra: Right where that thing will see them.
  • Imperial Probe Droid: [Droid language continues]
  • Sabine: Hope somebody's got an idea, or this whole plan is shot. I could have blasted it and gotten that result.
  • Ezra: Yeah, but then the Empire would suspect something was up.
  • Kanan: Good thinking, Padawan.
  • Sabine: Okay. It's touching when you two bond, but I'm betting that probe has friends, so let's move it.
  • Imperial Probe Droid: [Droid language continues]
  • Agent Kallus: Governor, one of our probes seems to have found something. We believe these are the speeder bikes responsible for the rebel activity near Jalath.
  • Tarkin: Where was this footage taken?
  • Agent Kallus: Outside the main communications tower.
  • Tarkin: A perfect target for these criminals.
  • Agent Kallus: We can't risk losing the tower. We should reinforce security--
  • Tarkin: No. Let them believe they still possess the element of surprise. Lure them in, and we shall be waiting.
  • Agent Kallus: As you wish.
  • Tarkin: Inquisitor, I am giving you the opportunity to redeem yourself. Do not disappoint me. And remember, I want this Jedi alive.
  • Inquisitor: Your faith will be rewarded.
  • Ezra: If it works, we should be able to use this to transmit directly through the tower.
  • Kanan: How we doing?
  • Sabine: Well, Chopper has the spike. We get him into the tower and he can upload it right into the computer core from any terminal.
  • Chopper: [Droid language]
  • Zeb: Stop complaining, bolt-brain. You have the easy job.
  • Kanan: What's the range of this spike?
  • Sabine: As long as the tower is transmitting, we're good to go. Everyone will hear what we say. Well, anyone who's listening.
  • Kanan: Once the spike is uploaded, we'll signal.
  • Hera: And I spirit you away in the Phantom.
  • Kanan: That's the plan.
  • Sabine: And things always go according to plan, right?
  • Ezra: She's right about that.
  • Kanan: What's with you?
  • Ezra: Nothing.
  • Kanan: Let's take a walk. What's on your mind?
  • Ezra: I'm not sure we should go through with this.
  • Kanan: Ezra, you are up to this. I know you are.
  • Ezra: I know that's what you want to think. But look. As much as I wish I was like my parents, I'm not.
  • Kanan: There's something else.
  • Ezra: [Sighs] My parents spoke out and I lost them, and I don't-- [Grunts] I-I don't want to lose you guys, okay? Not over this.
  • Kanan: Hey. All of us have lost things. And we will take more losses before this is over. But we can't let that stop us from taking risks. We have to move forward. And when the time comes, we have to be ready to sacrifice for something bigger.
  • Ezra: That sounds good, but it's not so easy.
  • Kanan: [Sighs] It's not easy for me either. My master tried to show me, but I don't think I ever understood it until now trying to teach it to you. [Sighs] I guess you and I are learning these things together.
  • Chopper: (Droid Language)
  • Kanan: Okay, Sabine, three minutes.
  • Sabine: Chopper, install the spike.
  • Kanan: What? They're here? That's impossible.
  • Ezra: Time's up.
  • Kanan: Sabine, we got targets incoming, Let's move!
  • Sabine: You said I'd get three minutes.
  • Kanan: (On Comlink) Well, now you get one, so hurry up!
  • Chopper: (Droid Language)
  • Sabine: Yeah, you and me both.
  • Kanan: Go get Zeb.
  • Ezra: I'm staying right here.
  • Kanan: No, you're getting Zeb then coming back here. Now go! Spectre-1 to Phantom. We're gonna change our pickup.
  • Hera: (On Comlink) Not a good ideam Spectre-1.
  • Kanan: Plan's changing. Just get your eyes on the sky. We'll meet you up there.
  • Hera: (On Comlink) Copy that.
  • Sabine: Okay, I got a signal. It worked. Let's go.
  • Ezra: Zeb, come on. Kanan wants us to move.
  • Zeb: But I like this gun.
  • Ezra: We'll get you another gun!
  • Zeb: Yeah, I can get another gun.
  • Kanan: Not this way. Back inside.
  • Sabine: Are you crazy?
  • Kanan; take the lift. Hera will meet you at the top.
  • Ezra: Wait. What about you?
  • Kanan: I'll take the next one.
  • Zeb: Let's go.
  • Kanan: Ezra. I'll be right behind you.
  • Agent Kallus: Now this is a familiar situation.
  • Kanan: Same situation, same ending. You lose.
  • Agent Kallus: I don't think so.
  • Ezra: Where's Kanan?
  • Inquisitor: What did you hope to gain by coming here?
  • Kanan: You're clever. Figure it out.
  • Inquisitor: You've been practicing.
  • Kanan: Nice of you notice.
  • Inquisitor: There's someone who wants to meet you. I your surrender now. He might your friends live. Unexpected.
  • Kanan: We're full of surprises.
  • Ezra: Kanan!
  • Kanan: Spectre-2, get ou of here!
  • Hera: (on Comlink) Not an option, Kanan.
  • Kanan: No time! Go!
  • Ezra: We can't!
  • Kanan: Hera! Looks like I have time to meet your friend after all.
  • Tarkin: Well done, Inquisitor. These are the results I expect. So, you are the Jedi in question?
  • Kanan: Whatever you want from me, you won't get it.
  • Agent Kallus: Sir, we have a problem.
  • Kanan: Explain.
  • Agent Kallus: It appears the insurgents have gained control of the tower's transmitter.
  • Ezra: We have been called criminals, but we are not. We are rebels, fighting for the people, fighting for you. I'm not that old, but I remember a time when things were better on Lothal. Maybe not great, but never like this. See what the Empire has done to your lives, your families and your freedom? It's only gonna get worse... unless we stand up and fight back. It won't be easy. There will be loss and sacrifice. But we can't back down just because we're afraid. That's when we need to stand the tallest. That's what my parents taught me. That's why my new family helped me remember. Stand up together. Because that's when we're strongest-- as one.
  • Tarkin: You do not know what it takes to win a war. But I do.
  • Ezra: Was Call to Action it worth it? You think anybody heard?
  • Hera: I have a feeling they did.
  • Ezra: This isn't over.
  • Hera: No, it isn't.
  • [End of Call to Action]
