Call the Midwife & Star Wars Rebels Season Finales
We had a fairly uneventful storyline of a sick mother to be who was cured by the miracle drug thalidomide. And Chummy's storyline of what to do with her mother ashes barely make a mark on this episode. But the Fred's daughter (who's a bitch btw) storyline was okay.. she interferes with Fred and Violets wedding plans but in the end with the help of Chummy sees what she has done and fixes it so Fred marries Violet.
And of course we have Pasty's story. I was super happy to see that they were finally progressing Patsy and Delia's story, they found a place to live and could finally be together and not worry about what people would say. Of course it's short lived as with Willow and Tara (Buffy reference), this lesbian couple isn't meant to have a happy ending. What is worse about this love story is that Delia doesn't die when she is hit by the car, no she suffers brain damage, seizures and amnesia so she doesn't remember the woman she loves... it's heartbreaking.
Over all this season (series) has had some amazing and very dramatic stories. Lots of the characters dealt with a few inner demons. There were laughs, tears and everything in between. I'm sad that it's already over and that we won't see the ladies of Nonnatus House until Christmas for their special and then season (series) five next January.
As I mentioned this was part two and three of the current story arch and I really enjoyed it. I especially liked it because it was a continuing storyline. It reminded me more of how the Clone Wars use to be with multiple episode story arches. I enjoyed these episodes and this first season. But the ending of episode 13 really turned things on it's head. The reveal of Fulcrum being Ahsoka was AWESOME. I mean rumors were abound that this was the case but it was so great seeing her again. Ahsoka was/is one of my favorites from The Clone Wars and her story was tragic and it was so sad when she left mid season five. You always wondered what happened to her.. now will hopefully find out. I do hope they make her more of a regular character in season two. And when the time comes for her EPIC battle with Vader (you know it's going to happen) It will be interesting to see if she knows that Vader is Annikan her former master. And how will Vader feel fighting his once Padawan. Speaking of Vader he was introduced at the very end and seems to be the new "bad" guy going after the Rebels.
And now that the Rebels know that they are only a small part of a bigger picture that's bound to change the feel of the series. Season one was all about these few Rebels giving a good fight on their little planet of Lothal. Getting to know each character and delving a bit into their background. I can't wait to see where they go with season two now that things have changed. Won't have to wait long as Season two starts up soon and we get to see the premiere at Celebration.
