Here's a thought ... maybe the "20-something female actress who is either of mixed race or black" IS Ahsoka?   :o 

I like Scott's comments on Obi-Wan "waiting to train" Luke.  What exactly was the plan?  I hadn't considered it before, but was Obi-Wan really waiting around to train Luke or was he just watching over him?  If Ben planned to train him, you'd think he would have started sooner - certainly that's what Yoda would have preferred.  If they really thought Luke (or Leia) had a chance of defeating Vader or the Emperor, then why not start sooner?  Heck, Yoda could have taken either of the twins with him to Dagobah to start training after birth.

My take was that Obi-Wan was merely sent to Tatooine with Luke to watch over him.  They (Obi and Yoda) didn't have any plans to stop the Empire - probably feeling defeated and that they would leave it to the rebellion at that point.  There's no evidence that they were planning to do anything to stop the Empire, including training Luke or Leia.  If they did, why not start sooner?  Why not stay in contact with the rebellion?   Luke was hoping to zip off to the academy and wouldn't have even run into Ben had his uncle let him go. 

I think the "plan" was simply to keep the children away from Vader to protect them and let the rebellion run it's course.  When Luke encounters Ben, he then changes his plan and decides to train Luke.  Maybe he could sense the rebellion faltering at that point or sensed the death of Beru & Owen, knowing Luke would need some direction in his life.  Maybe it was just the force calling out to him or off screen guidance from Qui Gon when the opportunity to shepherd Luke presented itself, but I don't think Obi's plan was to sit back all those years, then jump into the training when Luke reached a certain age.


Personally I think think Yoda/Obi/Jinn basically was leaving it up to the Force to let them know when the time was right to start training. Basically sitting back and waiting till the opportunity came to them and not them taking it upon themselves. Logically it'd seem wiser to start training both of them sooner rather then later, cuz there is a LOT of what if's. Like Luke dying in Empire or falling to the darkside leaving only 1 untrained Leia, and Yoda already at deaths door step cuz of old age and Obi as force ghost. Be pretty hard to start from scratch. Seems like too much risk but thats why i think they're relying on something BIGGER then just themselves to determine what to do. I think that obi/yoda open up  themselves to a bigger part of the force possibly with Jinn's help.

to me the whole disection of rat tells us that the rat man is Bob. who else besides Hershell, or the of Dr. that died from flu would be dissecting things. and besides his own admission of being with 2 other groups that have perished (except himself) possibly those other groups also died because of his feeding rats to zombies. the only question then is why. cuz he would also be at risk if zombies raid the encampments.

there were some hints both in the show and on TD about it playing out with Beth and Daryl, maybe not a relationship but there being something between them. think back to when Daryl broke the news to Beth about her BF dying in the Big Lots. And now the 2 of them run off together.

I would think that after the whole farm thing and how that played out, and after the Govners first invasion there would be a backup/bug out plan and where to go if things go really bad again. after all there was 6 months of relative peace for them to start thinking/planning for such. and the walkers had already broken thru the fences once before, so it wouldn't take a Govners invasion force to make them lose the prison.

i think Carol will find girls and Tyreese. and carol/tyreese will make nice n settle their differences.
Judith is with them, and because of carol taking care of the judith it will force rick to let her back in with the group when they all meet up again. 

someone is going to meet up with whatever group killed the other group that had those supplies that was shown in the Govner arc.

And i agree with Jesse the military girl Tara's GF is hot

loved it loved it loved it
especially head decap by wire and head stomp  >:D

my only complaint is that in the beginning of the episode the Merle compilation in the beginning gave it away that he was going to die, call it a tremor in the Force but i knew last nights episode would be his last once i saw that and kinda killed it for me.

after watching the clip on IGN @ the 1:27 mark when you look behind, i think his name is Doppler the clone with the teardrop markings/tat, right when he's about to aim his blaster at the jedi. there is what i assume is a commander he has 2 pistols ala Rex BUT has a Cody helmet and since all the other troops in that battle are 501st can we assume that it might be Rex and that he has upgraded his helmet.  Also Anakin is there in that battle.

kills knowing we'll probably never see that gattling gun that Rex comes with ever again in a non-action feature form,  thats main reason for me wanting this newer version over the less articulated one that we recently got.

i'm loving this season

few thots on last couple of things

back to lori, kinda, wasn't that a bullet that Rick found on the ground when he first walked into the room?  can't imagine zombies knawing on her and spitting that out especially if that bullet was in in her skull.  now i suppose that the bullet could have exited when carl shot her and thats just wear it landed, but i still got this nagging feeling that she's coming back zombiefied.  more then likely she'll be dragging her lower half like the the first zombie rick stumbled across in season 1. 

as michonne goes i'm lovin her, but her swordsmanship i don't know how good she actually is.  i'm no swordsman, even tho i do own a sword, but i'm pretty sure i could do what she's doing.  if u have a sharp enough sword it can't be too hard to cut thru rotting zombies.  thats not to say she doesn't skills, afterall she did get the drop on  Merle and his goons.  But a "swordsman" is someone with ability to go toe to toe with someone else tht has a sword, I look to the show Revolution for some basic swordsmanship.

i'm loving glen more now then ever, that was some bad-ass-ness.  He almost went Black Widow from Avengers with his chair fitting skills.  But that goes to show how stupid Merle is to send that zombie in there after not getting any info out of him first.

best thing for the grp left behind at the prison would be to let the scouting party come on in.  gotta think how hard would it be to for scouting party to try and find them in that prison in the first place.  let the scouting party wonder around a bit and start locking the doors behind them till basically their locked in the prison, then wait them out.  Carls grp knows the prison well enough by now that they could probably pick them off 1 by one in there versus some sort of assault of the prison and defending it.

the wait between midseason finale and the next new episodes are always killer.  :P

i think that the whole luke/leia being last hope is that there wasn't anyone one that was as powerful as Anakin even in his demenished state as Vader.  If Vader was to "be more powerful then either of us" from what Palps says in EPIII, then i think the best hope is that 1 of his offspring has the inate talent born into him/her to take Vader on and defeat him.  Any other Force sensitive person probably won't do, and probably would be killed just as easily as any of the council members did in EPIII.

I'd love to see Leia as a Jedi, c'mon what about the whole "pass on what you have learned" thing.  who else better for Luke to start teaching then his own sis and the other child from the "Chosen One".  Gotta say I never liked the EU portrayal of Leia never really learning to be a Jedi.  She could easily have become a Jedi General and be a negotiator of peace instead of being a total sentor/chancellor.  So if new movies are gonna trump the current EU I certainly hope it steps all over the whole Leia=senator aspect. 

It always seemed to me from Ep. 2 that the whole "shroud of the darkside" had some how hampered the Jedi and did not allow them to reach the full power that they were capable of.  There's that whole scene in which Windu, Kenobi, Yoda talk about how much the Jedi suck at what they used to be good at.  I imagine that that over the generations of Sith have slowly, so to not be noticed, sort of cut off the Jedi from the Force but just enough to not really notice.  And now that the most powerful of them, Sidious, is gone I hope to see Jedi pulling off stunts like we saw in the Old Republic trailers.

bot wolffe himself off ebay, and i'll be d@med if i ever noticed in the cartoon the he has grey armor instead of white.

funniest thing tho is that i have Wolffe standing next to the Old Repub trooper and how polar opposite they are.  the humongus bucket head on scrawny body for Wolffe, and the puny melon on the defensive lineman body for Old Rep trooper

true, but  how're u gonna naw on a skull
i think carl didn't shoot her and that she has reanimated into a zombie, and that is why she hasn't been on Talking Dead yet cuz we'll be seeing her again.
the engorged zombie fed on her as much he could and she came back to "life" and walked away.  I think it'll be like a season finale kinda thing that we see her at the end.

Or i could be wrong maybe they did go back and recover what was left of Laurie and buried her, and that's why don't see anything.

between Rick hacking at walkers and Michonne cutting that F'er in half I'm not sure what was best
