    I know we all saw him fall into that explosion but this has been on my mind for sometime now and that is...have we really seen the last of the Inquisitor? I mean is it possible he survived and escaped the Star Destroyer's destruction and is somewhere out there hiding in the shadows waiting for his chance of revenge.

    There have been characters from TCW who were thought to have been killed, returned alive and kind of disfigured, like Admiral Trench.

    • I've been saying the exact same thing since the episode premiered! Trench and Maul are prime examples of how we're never really sure if the villains are dead or not!

        Loading editor
    • Well Jess I thought the same thing! In Star Wars in genral people seriously never die, unless There like ben kenobi or something.....

        Loading editor
    • It is probably possible that he could still be alive. Like Total Drama series in Cartoon Network, Alejandro fell in the volcano but barely, and I meant BARELY survive.

        Loading editor
    • I would suspect that he will be back at some point, except that Dave Filoni explicitly stated that he is actually dead. That's not even a misdirection, he straight up confirmed it to be a true death.

        Loading editor
    • Aw, poodoo. Here's hoping he doesn't pull an EU Palps... He didn't mention any clones of Snaggletooth hidden anywhere, right? :)

        Loading editor
    • Oh man! It would have been epic if he survived. I actually like him and since Darth Vader is taking over will Agent Kallus be appearing.

        Loading editor
    • yeah, from the moment the inquisitor showed up, he skyrocketed on my favorite villains list,making him my favorite character on the show. However, I do like Sabine, and now that SPOILERS: ahsoka is back, I don't mind. However, I'm not sure what will happen now with the series. I mean seriously, the clone wars always had more than one villain that's a thereat. I mean, I don't consider kallus a threat or anything. I mean, there wasn't just dooku, there was maul,ventress,palps(rarely),grievous,pre vizsla, etc etc. reply if you agree!

    • Kallus is dangerous in his devotion to the Empire. Hard-liners like him are what make the Imps a formidable enemy, not the sorry excuses for the clone troopers' successors that are the stormtroopers. Besides, I kind of think Kallus is a bit insane (did you see his face in DiD), and that can be extremely dangerous.

      Different enemies or not, TCW villains nearly all had a common trait: They'd all had association with the main enemy, the Seppies. Somewhere along the line they worked with or associated with the Separatists. I think that's how we're going to operate with S2 of Rebels: Excluding Vizago (maybe), whatever enemies we find will most likely have some association with the Imps. Having diverse enemies is what will keep us feeling like the Empire can be a threat, because we'll never know who to expect in a fight situation.

      And sorry if this is a touch ramble-y, I just watched The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies for the first time and I'm OVERLOADING FROM ALL THE AWESOMENESS!!!

    • In the beginning I always considered the Inquisitor as the main antagonist of Star Wars Rebels and his death was so sudden, he's only been in one season. To be honest the later episodes of season one from "Call to Action" to "Fire Cossack the Galaxy" made it feel like the end of the series.

      To Bane7670: How do we know for sure if Dave Filoni meant what he said about the Inquisitor's fate? What if he changes his mind or the whole statement is in fact cover in order to keep us from discovering any secret spoilers? Current TV Shows can be unpredictable.

    • He didn't exactly phrase it all that ambigiously. In fact, he actually went out of his way to clarify that it was "an actual death" and that the character isn't coming back. It's entirely possible he'll change his mind, but he's not the type to outright lie to his fans.

        Loading editor
    • He died so quickly at the season one finale. I actually thought he might die at the end of the series (since he is the main villain).

      It was just a theory. I get quite curious and suspicious about such things that I sometimes let my imagination run wild.

    • I haven'r actually seen the episode where the inquisitor dies yet, but come on: him letting go above an explosion? That just screams: RUSE! RUSE!! RUSE!!! No matter what the person said. Like you wrote, he may change his mind, or he wants it to be a total surprize to the wievers when the pau'an shows himself again. Besides as it has been pointed out in this discussin the bad guys have a nasty habit of coming back. 

        Loading editor
    • I think you have to see how and where exactly he falls.

        Loading editor
    • I think that there will be an Inquisitor back S2. Because, as Bane pointed out in the Theories thread, Ezra asked Vizago why the Empire would send an Inquisitor to Lothal. An. There's got to be more Inquisitors then just Snaggletooth. I'd figured it was like that from the beginning, but Ezra confirmed my suspicions for me. :)

    • Maul was cleaved in half and he came back! if that wasn't a final death I don't believe anything to be certain. And Vader threw Palpatine into virtual pool of electricity and still he somehow came back. Dark force works wanders sometimes. Besides he was such a popular character, filled with potential I have complete faith in them bringing him back eventually, even if they do currently think the death to be final.

        Loading editor
    • Even though Filoni explicitly stated that it was an actual death and he wouldn't be coming back. One reason why I believe this is because he's served his purpose. He represents Kanan's fear in Season 1, fear of failing his friends, and when he says "Now I know that there's something stronger than fear... the Force." He destroys the Inquisitor's Lightsaber which, as The Visual Guide said, he used to strike fear into his enemies. It was a not-so-subtle symbol of fear itself for both Kanan and Ezra, and Kanan has overcome it.

      The Inquisitor lost his main asset, and he knew what failure meant for him, so he gave into his own fear and took the coward's way out. That was the main focus of this season. Now they're moving on to other focuses, a larger spectrum in the story.

      But, nonetheless, some of the writers will probably want to pander to viewers' theories and bring him back all Admiral Trench style, and you lot will hand me a big "I TOLD YOU SO!" But in the mean time, that's my theory and I'm sticking t it.

      Oh really, Mr. Spock? :P lol

      I wonder if they actually will bring in another Inquisitor. Of course, the rebels aren't going to be dueling Vader any time soon, and Kallus will probably only ever duel Zeb, so there's bound to be another Lightsaber-jockey along at some point.

        Loading editor
    • They should create a kaminoan inquisitor.

        Loading editor
    • There's only ever been one Kaminoan Jedi, and she had a relatively minor role in the EU. I don't think they'd have a Kaminoan Inquisitor, though. All that neck and those extra long limbs, pulling off lightsaber duels? Most likely extremely difficult to animate.

      Never really liked Kaminoans myself, 'specially after reading the Republic Commando books. Totally agree with Skirata: They'd be better off as sushi...

      An idea: They have a Force-ghost or something of the Inquisitor S3 or so. That way, he doesn't really come back in the sense of flesh-and-blood, but still somehow have a way to make him a credible threat.

    • It is possible after watching them in TCW I think they should have a Kaminoan Inquisitor).

        Loading editor
    • I doubt the Empire is on good terms with the Kaminoans anymore.

        Loading editor
    • Considering that Palps pretty much screwed them over after the Clone Wars, yeah, I don't think they're getting along at all.

    • I think the Empire would be on good terms since they were responsible for wiping out the Jedi (Order 66).

      I hope that the rebels will travel to Kamino to arrest Lama Su because she was responsible for Order 66.

    • Lama Su was a dude.

        Loading editor
    • Lama Su had nothing to do with the creation of Order 66. He was simply following Dooku's orders, as were all of the other Kaminoans. They never actually knew beforehand the real reason why the Republic created a clone army. Though, it probably became evident when the Empire phased out of cloned Stormtroopers.

        Loading editor
    • They should force Kamino to produce more clone stormtroopers for the empire.

        Loading editor
    • Sorry if I sound irksome, but are you even paying attention? The Empire has phased out of cloned troops on their own intent, meaning that Kamino has been cast aside. Let's drop this line of discussion now, since it's incredibly off topic.

    • I believe in that Inquisitor is alive. He's tough contestant and I think that he could survive.

    • True I mean Vader was burned in lava and Maul got cut in half.

        Loading editor
    • Dave Filoni explicitly said he was dead, and I accept that physically, the Inquisitor is most likely dead, yes. But then again, the Emperor was thrown into a reactor core, and in the EU he came back by inhabiting clone bodies. I'm not saying that's how the Inquisitor could be back, but he could come back as a Force ghost, possibly. I'm not sure about how he'd come back...

      he fell into a star destroyer engine

      and even if he did survive that fall he probably blew up when that star destroyer blew up

    • As he's falling you can see a ledge away from the destruction. I had a theory that he could of grabbed onto the ledge and escaped in the smoke. I even admit though that it's unlikely for this to be true but you never. I would actually be glad if the inquisitor come back in a later season.

    • Since we've had so many people come back from "death" (i.e. Maul, Trench, Vader, heck even the force ghosts) that I'd feel it would actually be a surprising twist if he was actually dead. Killing the "main villain" in the first season, and having him stay dead, would be such an unexpected turn of events that it would work perfectly for Rebels. Ahsoka? Completely expected. Vader? Expected as well. Giving us the same kind of fanservice repeatedly will start to get old after a while.

      Am I happy to have the Inquisitor die already? No, I wanted to find out more about him and his past. But this isn't Looney Tunes. He can't just keep failing and expect to remain a credible threat. I may not be entirely satisfied, but it was a good way for him to go out.

    • It's just like with Admiral Zhao from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Notice how both characters have the same voice actor and how their roles and characters are very similar. Both are the main antagonist if season 1, they duel during the finale, and they both die in the same manner--they accept their deaths because they don't want to face the wraths of their masters. So they're also similar in that they're both killed off during the season one finale, and are replaced by someone worse, much worse.

    • Oh hey, Gregor's not dead! I remember when that episode aired. No one thought he was dead. That's how many times this plot device has been used.

        Loading editor
    • No one thought he was dead because Dave Filoni explicitly stated that he was alive.

    • Then if this was his actual death they should of have Kanan killing The Inquisitor. I can't believe that they have 12 episodes of Ahsoka for TCW incomplete I get a arc but 12 ep.

      Since we've kind of gotten our answer, should we close this thread? Dave Filoni said he was dead, and since he's executive producer and is in charge of... well, everything about Rebels, I'm pretty sure the Inquisitor's dead.

        Loading editor
    • I say he is since 1, suicide because there was no way he was going to go Die BY the HAND of Vader, 2, he forced pushed himself INTO the engine, 3 the Ship was destroyed, and finally 4, Kanan and Ezra took the last TIE.


      After all the that, I dont think the inqusitor would even be alive, even if he was, he would be in Vader `s condition.

      Rebels Season Two - Mid-Season 23

      The Grand Inquisitor

      He may be though most think it is Darth Maul, it could be etheir though I side more on the Darth Maul.

    • It's Maul. If you look closely, it's his facial tattoos. And beside that point, the voiceover where you see the character in the trailer is Sam Witwer, who was Maul's voice actor from The Clone Wars.

    • Highly likely to be Maul plus Filoni confirmed Grand Inquisitor is dead.
