Who Is SMG?

There have been a lot of rumors and fan theories about who Sarah Michelle Gellar will be playing in Star Wars Rebels. Many said that she would play Princess Leia or the new Inquisitor, with others suggesting that the Inquisitor might be none other than Barriss Offee. With Gellar's role revealed on Buzzfeed and YouTube today, I have my own theory about the character.

On Lost Stars

Lost Stars author Claudia Gray fancast Gugu Mbatha-Raw and 
Sam Reid as main characters Ciena and Thane.

Lost Stars was up-all-night-reading good, but Ciena's final arc seemed like a lose-lose in terms of agency. I've been mulling over the meaning of the ending for about a week now, and it was in zooming out that I made a sort of peace with the exciting, dramatic finale. What does it mean for Ciena - and what does that say about the Empire?

A lot of spoilers to follow.
