I'll make this quick since most of my comments will be on We Talk Clones.

Had a feeling that something was not right by how easy it was. There were "two" things called out from The Box episode that were used in this one.

Loved how Palps was just "watching" during the lightsaber fight between Anakin and Dooku.

Good ep, nice way to end the four part arch. Had some sort of closure but also fanned the flames - will save this for WTC Wink

I agree. Palpatine was great, made poignant by the fact that Ian Abercrombie is no longer with us. The only problem I had with it was the holo-guise. It took me out of the story to see such a big hat fit into such a small disguise. On the whole, though, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I wasn't a big fan of the disguises either. I did like how there was more to the plot, but another Anakin and Dooku battle? Meh. We know they'll just go their separate ways.

Some positives: Finally, Palps is back!!! Loved Dooku's fighting style. Watching him reminded me of Christopher Lee's role as Rochefort in the 3 Musketeers Movie (70's version). Cad Bane did not get killed! Like the Light Day effects. Kenobi killed squid/octopus bounty hunter. Light banter between Windu and Kenobi was great to see.

Some negatives: I felt like this episode could have been better though. After the first 3 episodes it was almost like the creaters were saying, "Ok we're bored. Let's wrap this one up quickly." - CB disguised as a Nemoidian (spl?) Why would one have been on Naboo? Still don't like the squid/octopus bounty hunter. Don't like what's going on with Embo. He began as a hero-how far he has fallen. Eval was not killed-really would love for Anakin or Ashoka to have skewered him.

Finally caught up and watched the two episodes that I missed (this one and Friends and Enemies). Overall, I thought this was a fun arc. I like seeing the bounty Hunters, especially Cad Bane, and I thought they did a good job with his character. I liked Dooku's part in this episode, and I thought it turned out pretty good.

I still like the Krell arc better, though. That's my new watermark for the series. Cool

Ahsoka will fall to the dark side by killing Cad Bane, Anakin will kill her to stop whatever she's doing. This is my prediction.

I was kind of going for the opposite. Bane kills Ahsoka, Anakin kills Bane out of revenge.
