I'll admit, I had a bad feeling going into this episode. Mainly because of the tiltle: Witches of the Mist. Ya know what that makes me think of?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!! You've already polluted Narnia, don't pollute Star Wars too!
Anyway, that was all misguided as this was a really good episode.

-The rain at the beginning set a good tone, but it looked really fake.
-I almost laughed when Obi-Wan said, "I was under the impression that Darth Maul was from Irdonia." *snort* Yeah, me too! I'm glad they cleared that up. This episode was surprisingly innocuous to the Expanded Universe.
-All three Sith characters were handled really well in this episode.
-I didn't understand why Talzin told Ventress that she couldn't stay in hiding. Why the heck not?! Clearly she wasn't ready to take on Dooku. Waiting is what Sith do. They skulk in the shadows, planning and growing stronger and when the time is right, they strike. What';s the bloody rush?
-Toydaria has been neat in this show and I was sad to see Katuunko go.
-The droid humour was better in this episode. "You're not supposed to be here."
It actually makes sense that a Battle Droid would say that, but it was still funny.
-The duel(s) were epic. Really, all the battle scenes in this arc are a nice step up.
-Darth. Maul.... As soon as he showed up, I was like, "what the heck?!", paused it, Googled a picture of Darth Maul and compared them. It is definatley Darth Maul. I don't have any opinion on this right now, we'll see what happens. Although I'm pretty sure he'll look very similar to Darth Maul in Visions
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
