It's possible. After all, this Season is short(only 16 episodes), so Kanan getting killed in ep. 10 or 11 would work... Especially when they still have several other prominent characters to address, like Ezra, Thrawn, Ahsoka, etc. /shrug

In spite of his garbage feats Ezra, Maul thought him a worthy apprentice, and Sidious thought Maul a worthy apprentice. Ezra might be the canon version of Starkiller potential wise. Or Sheev is a pedo...which given his obsession with force sensitive infants, may be the case.
Sheev thinks that the Force sensitive generation of the future are a threat that could one day oppose him, so his interest in Ezra makes sense. He strikes me as quite paranoid about anyone who could become a Jedi.
I get the impression that both Kanan and Ezra die before the end. Which would make sense and be in line with some of Yoda's last words to Luke Skywalker, those words being "when gone am I the last of the Jedi will you be".
But in the old canon there were like 200 Jedi alive post Return of the Jedi, so who knows what's all going to go down.
The price of fame is high and the Thing cant pay the way.
It hasn't yet been revealed exactly what era Thrawn: Alliances will take part in. While we do know that one of the side-stories will detail Thrawn's past 'adventures' with Anakin during the Clone Wars, we also know that the novel will "continue to follow the rise of Grand Admiral Thrawn to the heights of Imperial power" -- suggesting that it will take place sequentially with Rebels.
Anywho, I would much rather see Thrawn's defeat/death properly fleshed-out in a novelization(preferably one written by Timothy Zahn), as I just don't see anyone else giving him proper respect/justice in that regard -- especially with how the show tends to rush things. However, IF indeed Thrawn is killed-off this Season, I am quite curious to see where they go with Eli Vanto and the rest of the Chiss Ascendency(of which is implied to be quite vast nowadays.) There is still a LOT of storytelling potential there.
I don't know, I kind of consider Thrawns downfall in the Zane books as PIS.
Then again, reading it today also has me thinking he's not nearly as slick as I remember. Joruus C'baoth was such a joke of a character, which made Thrawn look bad by struggling so much trying to reign him in.
Thrawn was trying to reestablish the Empire, and when his troops(whom were composed primarily of unseasoned rookies, mind you) were under the influence of Joruus' Battle Meditation, their overall effectiveness increased by a factor of no less than 30%. And because Thrawn's resources were in such short supply back then, he essentially *needed* this advantage(which only Joruus could provide, mind you) in order to gain any sort of clear upperhand against the New Republic.
IOW, it wasn't so much that Thrawn couldn't control Joruus or w/e(the Ysalamiri were a very effective tool in that regard) -- it's that he didn't want to risk pissing him off to the point where he'd say "f*ck it, I quit!!!"
