From looking at a scan from the special edition as the Rebel fighters are flying past Yavin, there were at least 8 Y-wings in the strike force. I like the mention of General Dodonna in the show, and that the fighters that Ezra's unit stole were headed off to Dodonna's cell. I think that it may have come across as too convenient if Ezra, Sabine and Zeb had been able to make off with a dozen Y-wings. If anything, Rebel units probably managed to equip themselves in a piece-meal fashion. Y-wings were a standard part of the Republic military during the Clone Wars, so there are probably plenty more in surplus elsewhere that are ripe for the Rebellion to... acquire.
I liked the episode. Kanan's quest made it interesting, since he's clearly suffered a tremendous personal setback, but in trying to come to grips with that he explores other facets of The Force with the help of the Bendu.
Ezra seems like he's headed down a path that's dangerous. The mind trick on the AT-DP driver was probably one of the darker things we've seen a character do on this show. But he also seems to have had a moment of clarity as he nearly got killed when he set out to bring that station down.
The Sith holocron seems like it's going to come back at some point, and soon. Should Kanan have entrusted it to the Bendu? I'm really curious to see how that works out.
I don't count myself among the biggest Thrawn fans. But I think that our introduction to the character is being done at a very deliberate pace.
