If that barn-burner finale or a sinister new look didn’t make it abundantly clear, Star Wars Rebels Season 3 has Ezra moving closer to the dark side than ever. So it is with the latest clip from Season 3, as even Darth Vader would find Ezra’s use of the Force was downright cold.

IGN shared a new clip from the September 24 premiere, in which Ezra takes the ol’ Jedi mind trick to a significantly dark extreme, controlling a walker pilot to start stamping out Stormtroopers like ants. Definitely not a great sign for our newly 17-year old apprentice, as arrogant young Jedi have a pretty poor survival rate in this universe.

Elsewhere of Star Wars Rebels, new episodes will take a little trip through time to age up Ezra into a young Jedi teetering on the edge of light and dark. And while Darth Vader may not be so visible this time out (ditto for Ahsoka), Season 3 will more than make up for it with the introduction of Lars Mikkelsen (Rogue One star Mads’ brother) as Grand Admiral Thrawn, who returns to Star Wars canon after Disney’s acquisition of the franchise.

Season 3 will premiere a full hour on September 24, so stay tuned for the latest on Star Wars Rebels in the meantime.
