Two gripes with this episode. Number one: the demons of Iego are replace by a Sep laser grid. This is just plain stupid. They actually showed one of the angels, so why take away the demons? The whole idea of Iego was that the angels lured in space captains and the demons kept them prisoner. By doing things they way they did them, they ruined the whole mythos of the place. It was dumb.

Number two: when Anakin and Obi-Wan return with the root, it magically cures the bunker full of the virus and those infected. Magically. What does this mean? Somehow Obi-Wan and Anakin were able to open the bunker without the fumes getting out. Then they were able to turn the root into the serum so they could cure everyone infected. (however I'm not completely sure they were cured when they got pulled out, they certainly looked better but who knows) And the virus doesn't seem to be very contagious as there was no quarantine of the victims or their clothing. The wrap up just seemed sloppy.

All that to the side, I liked the boy on Iego and how he reprogrammed the Sep droids to serve him. His voice acting was well done and he had good dialog. I also like the effects they did on Ahsoka and Padme to make them look sick. Plus I got a laugh when Jar Jar was running around for his helmet.

Not to bad, but I agree, Skuldren, with all your points. It was weird when the angel showed up and there was no emphasis. You'd think Anakin, hearing stories about them since he was little, would have at least looked surprised.
