    As I said, they moved a lot of things earlier in the timeline. Here Anakin becomes a Padawan soon after Geonosis but, again, many of the stories where he's a Padawan can take place in that time, or just change the fact that he's a Padawan and not alter much else. Does it actually state her age anywhere or are you assuming? Does Anakin's status in the order have any bearing whatsoever on the Medstar stories specifically?

    Just a small Buddhist-like statue and some candles, IIRC. Nothing too fancy but I thought it was an interesting little detail since I haven't really seen anything like that for the Jedi before.

    BTW, did anyone else notice the Donkey Kong style fight between Ahsoka and Fake Asajj? Rolling barrels, climbing levels?

    Cool, but that also lists the now-delayed 3D releases, so that's definitely not up to date. That DaGeDar company had stuff shown at the Toy Fairs, so that's likely where this is from. It's also entirely possible that this is for an international broadcast of the show, since different countries play the show at different times.

    Ashley Eckstein did a Q&A on the Star Wars Books Facebook page, where she had this to say:
    Q: Will The Clone Wars continue past Season 5?
    A: For all of you asking about the future of The Clone Wars. There are more Clone Wars stories left to tell and they are working on an announcement on where you can find those future stories. Stay tuned for more information, but that's all I know for now.
    So thankfully it sounds like the show will still be continuing in at least some capacity.

    In non-spoiler news, it looks like Coleman Kcaj will finally be joining the Jedi Council in this episode! Ackbar is making his return as well, now with his ROTJ-style feet instead of his Season Four flippers (so I presume they retract or something, or maybe he had cosmetic surgery ). The rumor going around is that Palpatine's new voice is Tim Curry, and the preview certainly sounds like him, which would be kind of crazy.

    Spoilers ahead . . .

    The episode guide is up, and there are two more previews here and here. Based on the third preview and the character model without the braid, it looks like the Jedi Council will remove Ahsoka as Anakin's Padawan, which I did not expect to see happen in this fashion. A Canadian preview makes it obvious that Anakin duels with Barriss in this episode, so I assume the truth will be revealed, though I'm really interested to see how it all plays out. The Council's actions against Ahsoka will undoubtedly make Anakin even more wary of them, especially after their treatment of Obi-Wan's "death" last year, helping show why he was willing to go against them in ROTS. Awesome!

    Then yes, but I didn't really note it as anything, that's interesting. I hope they don't use that as her excuse, she should really just be a disillusioned Jedi who felt driven to extreme action. Perhaps that could disillusion Ahsoka into leaving, that'd be fine by me.

    Ha! That's totally on the money!

    Good point.

    I kinda hope that's wrong, he's SUCH a specific voice that it'd be distracting.

    Really you should have made that Spoiler Alert bigger, I'll do that now. All of this kinda bums me out, I didn't want to see any of those spoilers until it aired.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Sorry, and thanks. As to the spoilers, I was pretty shocked to see them in the official previews, so I have to assume there's still much more to the story here (and it certainly seems that way). Either way, it seems like this episode will definitely be a game-changer.

    According to the Huffington Post it is indeed Tim Curry.

    And he did a fantastic job. Since it still sounds like the Palpatine we know and love.

    And wow... hell of a season finale. The show just keeps getting better. Hope it continues.

    Was I surprised by this finale? Somewhat? How so? Read the white text below...

    I thought that Mace's comments about her great trials would've meant she would be elevated to Jedi Knight status, not Padawan. I wasn't surprised by Ahsoka's decision; I just wonder if she's gone from the series now (but I doubt it). The "wait, I have last-second evidence!" ploy was expected. Let's see where Barriss ends up. Curry's voice occasionally sounded more like Tim Curry, but for the most part, he did a good job. The new "newest" guards' uniforms are pretty cool.

    Season Six might be a great way to wrap it all up, and lead into E3.
