So has the show become a series of 3 episode arcs or what? This is the third one in a row, although who knows where they end up in the actual time line. I like the idea but it seems be overdone imho.
*Christophsis - two and the movie
*Malevolence - three
*Rookies - three
*R3-S6 - two
*hunt for Nute Gunray's - three
*Dooku captured - two
*Maridun - two
*Pantora - two
*Blue Shadow Virus - two
*Ryloth - five (including Ambush, given the events of Supply Lines connecting them)
*holocron - three
*Geonosis - five
*hunt for Grievous - two
*Lightsaber Lost - one
*Mandalore's Death Watch - three
*Bounty Hunters - one
*Zillo beast - two
*Boba Fett - three
*Mandalore's corruption - two
*Ziro the Hutt - four
*military spending bill - three
*Nightsisters - three
*Mortis - three
So that's 21 arcs so far, plus two standalone episodes. Yowza!
Another thing - the episode guide says that the fact that the Father was the only one to disappear upon his death was intentional. I wonder if he and Qui-Gon had a little chit-chat.
I gotta agree....as much as I was NOT enjoying the first two episodes of this arc...this last one did kind of reel it it in and tie it up in a good way. It made it easier for me to accept this whole story arc as something that "happened but didn't happen" as far as what the movies present. And yes, I like what JabbaJohn said about the possible coda of this whole arc is that while Anakin doesn't remember seeing his future, the whole incident may have left a residue of doubt towards the Jedi. Not bad, not bad at all...
And now...back to the clones! Yes! :)
The thing that had me curious was that the Father knows the future, but still warned Anakin to be mindful of his heart. I'm not sure if that meant to follow his heart because he had to become Darth Vader, or for Anakin to be wary of what his heart wants out of him to avoid becoming Vader.
So the balance of the Force episode was just some sort of dream the Jedi all had? Or a vision at the very least?
I kind of felt the whole thing was a waste. Ashley Eckstein asked on her Facebook page what people thought of it. While Ahsoka basically didn't do much anyway, I felt it was probably best not to answer her question.
At least there aren't Sith warriors who wear clothes, and can turn into naked bat-things in "real life." At least in my interpretation of it (the shuttle never landed on a real planet period).
I don't know who was influencing their vision - and if only Anakin had it, or they all shared it "in the Force or something."
Seems like maybe the latter, since why would Anakin dream what Obi-Wan was doing when he wasn't physically there (when Obi-Wan spoke to the Father)?
Anyway, this is exactly why I like the Senate politics episodes better. And I'm NOT being sarcastic.
More awesomeness. Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca will be appearing in two episodes of the Clone Wars!
He'll be in the One Hour Season Finale that airs on April 1st. There's a clip over at the NY Times....
