"It was a simple story about a boy who was lost and a girl who was broken. They fought alongside a survivor, a war veteran, and a fallen knight. I led them into battle against an evil so terrible it tried to black out the stars. We fought for each other. We fought for those who could not. But we never imagined it would end like this."
―Hera Syndulla[src]

  5. The trivia guide for Star Wars Rebels: Heroes of Mandalore states that Bo-Katan Kryze was redesigned to advance the character's age by "18 years or so." As she was last seen in The Lawless, which was dated to 19 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, it can be assumed that the events of Heroes of Mandalore, and by extension almost the entirety of Season Four, takes place in approximately 1 BBY. The book "Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy" states in addition that Ahsoka Tano returns to Lothal in 5 ABY following the end of the Galactic Civil War, or five years after Ezra pulls her through a portal into the World Between Worlds within the Lothal Jedi Temple to save her in 0 BBY, it can thus be reasoned that every remaining Season 4 episode starting with "Wolves and a Door" up until the Season 4 and overall series finale episode, "Family Reunion – and Farewell", marks another year change mid-to late-season for the final few episodes of the series.
