"Always Two There Are" is the fifth episode of the Star Wars Rebels animated television series' second season. It is the twentieth episode of the series overall. The episode premiered on October 28, 2015 on Disney XD.
Thanks to Rex's intel, Ezra, Sabine, Zeb, and Chopper head out to an abandoned Republic medical station with the hopes of finding much needed supplies. When they encounter new enemies, however, the stakes become much higher.
Aboard the Ghost, Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger enter the common room to learn how to levitate objects, specifically Chopper. Following Jarrus' teachings, Bridger tries to lift Chopper with the Force. What the two Jedi don't realize is that, as a prank set up by Chopper and Sabine Wren, Chopper has his feet locked to the floor; no matter how hard Ezra tries, he cannot lift the droid. Ezra finally gives up, only for Rex to reveal the prank as the perpetrators laugh. Ezra calls the trick unfair, but Kanan asserts that a fight is never fair. Rex tells him more about the Jedi General he fought beside and how he became a great warrior by combining The Force with his wits. Kanan tells Rex that Ezra has plenty of wits, and what he really needs is discipline. Before it can turn into an argument between the two, Hera Syndulla shows up with a mission for Wren, Chopper and Garazeb Orrelios to salvage some medical supplies from an old Republic medical base. As Jarrus and Rex continue to argue over how Bridger should be taught, the Padawan decides to sneak away and join Wren, Chopper and Orrelios on their mission. They board the Phantom and depart from the fleet.
They arrive at their destination, which turns out to be an old Republic medical station that was abandoned after the Clone Wars. They approach the hanger bay doors and using the codes given by Rex, the doors open and they land. After exiting the Phantom, they find the station to be powerless as well as dark and unsettling. To get some power running, the four of them go in search of the command center. The hallways are dark and quiet, and everywhere they go they encounter scattered parts and machines that were left behind after the station was abandoned. Unbeknownst to them, an ID9 seeker droid was tracking their every move. The Rebels soon find the command center and Chopper powers up the entire station, despite Wren only needing the control panel. Meanwhile, a nearby Imperial Star Destroyer detects the station's power surge. The officer reporting suspects it to be the Rebels, but Kallus dismisses that possibility, as it could be anything, such as a malfunction or scavengers. However, the Fifth Brother states it is the Rebels they seek and set out alone for the station.
Back at the station, Wren has managed to get all the inventories but most of them are corrupted and unreadable; she is unable to tell where the medical supplies are and is unsure if they even exist. Bridger suggests they go looking for the supplies while Chopper stays behind to try and repair the files. All alone, Chopper hears a strange noise echoing through the hallways and decides to investigate. Turning to another corridor he continues to follow the sound until he is cornered by a seeker droid that electrocutes him. Although down, Chopper manages to send out a distress call to the others. To reach him faster, Bridger and Wren take a shortcut through the ventilation shaft, but Orrelios ends up getting stuck while trying to follow. Bridger and Wren soon find themselves in another hallway and begin looking for Chopper. Instead of finding their droid, they come across the seeker droid and a woman standing in the shadows. At first Bridger suspects she's a bounty hunter, but after activating her lightsaber she is revealed to be an Inquisitor known as the Seventh Sister.
Bridger engages the new Inquisitor in a fight while Wren takes on her seeker droids. Quickly overpowered, they make a run for it and bump into the Fifth Brother. After getting a shut door open, the two of them attempt to flee but Bridger is caught by the seeker droids. Wren tries to save him but Ezra tells her to run. To cover her escape he seals the door, leaving him to be captured by the two Inquisitors. The Fifth Brother tries to kill him but the Seventh Sister wants to use him as bait to trap the others. Wren finds her way back to Orrelios who is still stuck in the ventilation.
After helping him get unstuck, Wren tells him about the two Inquisitors who have captured Bridger. Zeb suggests they alert Kanan but Wren is against making contact with the others as sending a signal could compromise the fleet. They are left with no choice but to save Bridger themselves. Meanwhile Bridger remains captive to the Seventh Sister, who voices how impressed she is with Bridger's skills as a Jedi and offers to teach him much more, noting that his mentor had never reached the rank of Jedi Knight and is thus ill-qualified to instruct a Padawan. Bridger then cites Jarrus' defeat of the The Grand Inquisitor, something that the Seventh Sister admits was unexpected but presented the other Inquisitors with "new opportunities."
In the hallways, the Fifth Brother continues searching for Orrelios and Wren with the seeker droids. Through the use of the Force he senses their presence nearby and approaches them. Orrelios and Wren have planted thermal detonators nearby but when Wren tries to trigger them they don't go off. The Fifth Brother uses the force to throw the detonators at Orrelios and Wren. Both of them survive the explosion but the blast leaves Wren unconscious and is taken away by the Fifth Brother, leaving the seeker droids to deal with Orrelios. Meanwhile, Zeb destroys the droids and finds the medical supplies they came for. Back at the command center, the Seventh Sister interrogates Bridger in an attempt to get him to reveal the location of the other Rebels, most notably Ahsoka Tano, whom she reveals the Inquisitors are fully aware of. Despite her best efforts, Bridger refuses to cooperate. Just then the Fifth Brother shows up with Wren. The Seventh Sister tells Bridger to contact the Rebels but he again refuses to cooperate. After finding Chopper, Orrelios returns to the Phantom the get his Bo-rifle, but doesn't think he will stand chance against two Inquisitors. Nonetheless he refuses to leave Bridger and Wren to their fates.
Orrelios sends a false message to Bridger and Wren under the name of "Commander Meiloorun". He says they missed their check in and asks if their craft is damaged, offering support. Wren denies any support, but after the Fifth Brother threatens to kill her Ezra reconsiders the offer. With instructions to meet at Bay Six, the Inquisitors take the captives to the hanger bay with plans to dispose of them all once they have the Rebels. Upon arriving at the hanger, Bridger and Wren spot Orrelios in the Phantom, hanging upside down on the ceiling. When the last of the Seventh Sister's seeker droids spotted him as well, Zeb created a commotion that enabled Ezra and Sabine to escape from the Inquisitors' clutches and board the Phantom. They escaped with most of the medical supplies and returned to the Rebel Fleet. Upon returning to the Ghost, they informed Jarrus, Syndulla and Captain Rex about the two Inquisitors they encountered, much to Jarrus' shock, as he was unaware that there was more than one Inquisitor.
