My only problem with the episode was it's placement. The ending seems forced because it happens merely days after her whole clan was massacred. The revelations she had might seem reasonable if she'd been able to come to them over several weeks or months.

Plus, there's the issue of the next episodes. Massacre, Bounty, Brothers, and Revenge have been marketed as a four-part season finale. But it seems to me that this would be better as a standalone. The end of Bounty does not look like it leads anywhere that Brothers can pick up from.

I think this should have been aired as Massacre near the start of Season 4, Bounty somewhere near the middle by itself (as The Further Adventures of Asajj Ventress), and then just have Brothers and Revenge at the end (or, alternatively, as a cliffhanger Season 4 finale and Season 5 opener).

You know I was going to ask if that helmet (Boba Fetts) was of Mandalorian design, or is it somethng else entirely. Dito on his blasters. Are those Jangos? Or just Westar-34?
Didn't Jango loose them ect.?

They could easily be a spare set of Jango's.

The helmet looks like some art I saw, a while ago, detailing the armour of some mercenaries, and the descriptions said that their armour was from Concord Dawn. It's possible that this helmet is also from Concord Dawn - a planet in Mandalorian space, I believe. This is the birth place of Jango, and Boba also works there as a Protector for a brief amount of time. So if this is said to be of Concord Dawn design, then that's some pretty nifty tying in.

I looked on StarWars.com, in the hopes that it would have some tidbits of information in regards to this. Sadly, it didn't, but it did have some more detailing on Dengar. The head scarf is different (more detailing), and so it could be put down to him going back to his old fashion of wearing headscarfs, when he's injured.

On a related note, I had heard it said that the dog-like animal accompanying Embo is a Vornskr. Sadly, it's not. It's an anooba.

I was disappointed that we only saw Embo for a second or two. I really like this character.

Lucas's galaxy is FOUNDED on it being super tiny apparently. Yoda knew Chewie, Anakin built Threepio, and bounty hunters all run into each other on random planets like its all one small town in the Midwest. For a guy who's main characters don't believe in coincidence his visual media seem to be completely based on it.
