I'm very pleased with this episode. Don't get me wrong, I like politics (okay I tried resisting it for as long as possible before giving in) but I wasn't interested in the politics of the earlier episodes, nor of the countless attempts on Padme's life, so it was with a great deal of relief that this episode turned up. So much so that I keep watching it, over and over! finally having Dooku being badass and winning. Ventress, okay, I'm not so familiar with her, but she was quite fun to watch, especially her flashbacks! As I said, I don't know her backstory, but this is one of those times, those rare times, when I think to myself 'I want to know more about this Clone Wars based character.' Okay, I'm gushing, but I can't help it! And that planet! What was it? It looked like a sunnier Ren Var, but whatever, I'm not a big fan of cities, give me ruins and the archaeologist in me comes alive!
I could go on forever about the Dooku battle and the apparent ode to Ep III, but time is short, so for now I'll end with my amusement over the inclusion of the Nightsister's views on men, as evidenced by the Mother's words and tone when speaking to Dooku.

The planet Dathomir worked for me- I never think a planet on any SW project is entirely one thing, unless specifically said so. So for me I thought the desert like environment was perfect. I wouldn't imagine a DS user's place thriving with greenery.


Actually, while I liked the sand, when I read the Courtship I imagined it as jungleland.

I thought it was an okay episode. I was surprised the witches all had lightsabers, and the laser bows were different. When I watched it I remembered a few gripes but I've forgotten what they were now.

Oh it is, but I just can't see EVERY planet in the SWEU being one ecosystem. I can see that the PRACTICES of the Nightsisters have KILLED the jungle where they live and this new desert area is what we see from the effects.

Re the lightsabers- this made sense- recall Yoda has already come to Dathomir to negotiate the release of the Jedi survivors from the Chun'thor's wreck. When the Jedi academy ship crashed the nightsisters took many hostage and wouldn't let them leave the planet.

It would make sense that they kept some of the sabers they confiscated.

Indeed. I wasn't saying that it had to be greenery, merely that that's how I imagined it, and that I see no problem with DS users being around greenery.
