The Force Discourse: Saw Gerrera

On this episode of the Force Discourse, Carl and Amy do a character study of Saw Gerrera.

Using Rebel Rising by Beth Revis, as well as Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel by James Luceno, Rogue OneThe Clone Wars and Rebels in their discussion, they discuss/ask:

  • What caused Saw to use such drastic tactics?
  • Would Steela have been proud of the man he became?
  • Why would Lyra entrust the care of her daughter him?
  • Was there ever a chance for Saw to fit in with the Rebellion?
  • Is Carl unknowingly a sleeper Soviet agent who can be triggered into action by Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”?

Finally, Amy and Carl decide whether Saw was right about how far a rebellion needs to go for victory.

So join us as we blast out of the docking bay right now!
