Awesome episode, the animation continues to get cleaner with each episode. Ahsoka has grown up so much in these last couple of seasons and season 5 is gearing up to be no exception.

Meh. The whole episode was just... meh. Stiff dialogue and kinda boring - not sure the love triangle thing worked well. Hopefully this arc picks up the pace next week.

I'm not an expert in this field, of course, but I noticed no canon-changing references.

I quite liked this episode (managed to find a place that shows it online, albeit in two parts). But the main thing I liked perhaps couldn't be said to be about TCW, but rather TPM. One thing I appreciate greatly about TPM is how they started the prequel trilogy with a lot of interesting, well designed, memorable vehicles - as well as interesting enemies. TCW has continued this - I was all set to wax lyrical about the AAT - as well as introduced some of their own, but where they continue in this vein is character models. Not so much in the first seasons, but when the animation has become sharper, more refined, the team's creativity (maybe not the best word for it) has exploded. Better detailed characters, more interesting outfits. I was inordinately pleased with Rex's uniform.

Another detail which I was going to include was the 'acting' was more nuanced. I liked Ahsoka's reaction during the council meeting, when Anakin was detailing an un-Jedi-like plan, was very good, I thought. That subtlety kinda went out the window with the love triangle scenes Confused .

Not at all. We never get a grand view of the majesty that is the City of Iziz, but I don't care. Not seeing something =/= it not existing.

Also, the last time we saw Onderon was 1,000 years ago (almost 4,000 years ago visually). I don't care if things change over that much time.

Not a bad episode, but as interesting as last weeks was IMO. I felt a little bored having gone from Maul's plan to basically form his own side in the war, to watchig Anakin & Ahsoka train some rebels.

Well, it is a 4 episode arc so I'm not surprised it was more low key. I expect it'll ramp up.

Glad to hear it.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Onderon is now a water-world, orbiting a binary star and a blackhole because...reasons" kinda thing. Glad to hear that it doesn't seem to have been affected.
