This episode features the return of Mon Mothma with actress Genevieve O’Reilly reprising her Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One role.
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, have been strengthening the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire.
“Secret Cargo” begins when a routine refueling mission goes awry. Soon, the Ghost crew find themselves transporting Mon Mothma across the galaxy
