    I think it has a double meaning.

    But maybe that's the point, that the Emperor is too wrapped up in the DS. Does the text indicate Thrawn's opinion?
    Thrawn is 100% that mobile fleets are the way to go. The emperor says it in the book plus we know through ANH that they think the DS will keep everyone so afraid their planet will get destroyed there will be no more resistance.

    Anyone notice other than a few nondescript grunts, Ruhk had no lines? Was Warrick unavailable that week?

    It was confirmed just a couple episodes ago in "Kindred" where after the wolves save the team one of them says "Dume" to Kanan. Ezra asks what it means and Kanan reveals to him that it's his real name, Caleb Dume.
    Thanks buddy! My cable is screwed up, once we figure it out I’m going to go back and see if I watched kindred. I somehow don’t remember that part

    Appreciate it!

    In the entire run of this show has Hera EVER removed her headgear? Even with the X-wing helmet she still had something on underneath.

    Also, was that the first time we've ever seen an X-wing actually close it's wings?

    Well, we've never seen a female Twilek without headgear in the films, so at least that's consistent. Have we ever seen her going night night? One would think at least THEN....

    The headgear thing I think is just something that makes it easier for artists.

    If we're talking real-world, they're for holding the appliances on the actresses' heads.

    I would have to guess that a female exposing that section of their head is taboo. Like going around topless. I've don't recall seeing a female Twi'lek without a headdress of some sort.

    I just checked all the Wookiepedia for all of the Twi'leks, and the amount of headgear varies, but the head isn't always covered completely. Of note, Lyn Me (RotJ) only had a wrap around her forhead and two straps over the lekku, and Oola (RotJ) only had a piece around her face and on her forehead (although these two were both at Jabba's place, so "decency" may not be a factor). However Supi (AotC) only had a tiara-like band around her head, and the lekku free, and Luta (Poe Dameron: Lockdown comics) only has bands right at the base of her lekku (nothing on the head itself), so I don't know.

    Out-of-Universe, it probably is a practical thing to help with the appliances/animation (although 3 these 4 are live action), but I'm not sure we can find an in-character reason.

    I thought it was mentioned somewhere in canon that females never show their ears?

    Those cones on the side of their head I thought was ears. Makes don’t have this feature
