    I really hope Doctor Aphra survives this to go on more adventures — it would be just like her to have a back up plan — but it’s a fantastically heartbreaking ending to her story if not.

    The story does spend a bit of time with Lucky as he heads back to Canto Bight to help his family and we see the state of Magna at this point, but a lot of what we get is either action or conversation. Scourge and Domina have a pretty good sequence playing off each other and the shift in narrative with the Scourge losing droids plays well with Sana and Aphra rescuing Domina. I’m definitely curious to see how they wrap things up and where Aphra is going to find herself long-term because part of me doesn’t have a problem bringing her story to a close pre-ROTJ. But I also know just how much fun it would be to have her roaming around the galaxy in the live-action side as well and I want to see that. Regardless, this is a solid issue overall and continues the Aphra run being one of the better parts of the Dark Droids storyline.

    Between her countless adventures and her own physical transformations, Doctor Aphra is uniquely attuned to be able to stop the Scourge once and for all, as she uses her wits to try to stop the invading threat and save those closest to her – even just physically close, as she even hopes to save former rivals. The overall narrative of this issue falls largely in line with the rest of the Dark Droids event, in that it’s not especially bad but not especially thrilling, as the Scourge has merely been slowly advancing across the galaxy far, far away for months. The event has been more style than substance, so that’s not to say this installment is a disappointment, but with it being the penultimate issue in this Doctor Aphra line, the surface-level story is elevated with some touching character moments that could allow the official finale be even more satisfying.
