Caitlin and Charlotte lead with the question: Once you start down the dark path, *does* the Dark Side forever dominate your destiny? We trace the dark side’s historical origins, including the early drafts of Star Wars with the Ashla and Bogan, to the Revenge of the Sith novelization and much more. Then we dive into Anakin Skywalker’s journey into the dark side and parse through our origin hypothesis. Finally, we talk about Ben Solo, redemption, and whether the dark side *does* dominate his destiny, and what that means for the story. We talk about Robert Bly’s concept on the human shadow and how that relates to the Dark Side. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers! This episode was edited by Danny Pirtle.

Caitlin and Charlotte are excited to discuss all the bonus features on the Blu-Ray release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. To begin, they give a review of how these bonus features stack up against previous Star Wars films. In part one, they discuss the feature-length documentary “The Director and the Jedi,” and the respect they have for Rian Johnson, as well as the controversy surrounding Mark Hamill. In part two, they discuss the deleted scenes. In part three, they talk about extrapolated quotes from Rian Johnson’s audio commentary of the film. Finally, Charlotte gives a brief review of the Music-Only version of the film.
Caitlin and Charlotte are back to discuss the two Star Wars: Rebels episodes from October 30th, “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender.” First, Charlotte gives a very rushed 20 second recap. Then, the two swap their 2 pros and 1 con of the episodes. Next, they discuss story: they’re finally back on Lothal, so what is it all for? What’s the state of the Rebellion now and what the heck is up with the wolves? And the closed-caption ending? Finally, they talk characters: what does it mean to Ezra to return here? Is Sabine’s hair metaphorical? Kanera feels galore. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers’ Fulcrum Files!
Charlotte and Caitlin’s series where they discuss the latest episode of Star Wars: Rebels returns with a discussion on “In the Name of the Rebellion,” a two-part episode. Caitlin is pretty impressive with her 20-second recap, and both Caitlin and Charlotte give their 2 highs and 1 low of the episode. Then, they discuss story: where are we in the Rebellion? What themes prevailed and why was this episode such a success? What do we make of choosing certain episodes to be one hour? Next, they discuss characters: Ezra, Ezra + Sabine, Saw, and Kanan. This and so much more on the latest episode of Fulcrum Files!
