I'd say the most off thing about it was the Imperial Sentry Droids, a lot of people were hoping for Dark Troopers specifically.

Rebels Recon said they were originally going to be probe droids. In this case changing them to Dark Trooper-like robots for a nod to the EU opens up a lot of questions, like how come the Empire doesn't use them more?

Sand Trooper. Hasbro loves them more than stormtroopers.

Also, it's great that Pax Bonkik is coming back.

Particular store? No...that's every Wal-Mart anymore...but they haven't reached K-Mart levels yet.

A set like that is much easier for repacking. Buy it, swap the figures out with dollar store figures.  >:D

I don't hate TWD, but they seem to be stuck on the  formula of just building up to a midseason finale and then a season finale, which is getting to be a problem with many shows. (It makes me miss episodic television).  And they're back to separating characters, leaving the audience to wonder when everyone is getting back together...even though there's arguably too many characters on the show to NOT have them split up into different arcs. But can lead to drawn out stories.  As they said on Talking Dead, we last saw Tara 9 episodes a go!

Princess Penelope's People's calling card?

We'll be introduced to her soon.

How about Pied Piper's Pizza?

Er...Pirates of Penzance Patrol?

Horrible writing.  A lesbian wakes up in a town full of only women... and leaves.   :P

Which is why I had a theory that the community was all Tara's imagination.

Her mind created a male-less society that would seem to be appeal to her ("I can't believe I'm asking this, but where are all the men."), but she was unwelcome...that echos what Heath was discussing...everyone chooses themselves over others.  The violent little girl mirrors the one who killed her girlfriend at the prison attack in season 4. Tara's obvious lying, which means she'll be forced to tell them truth (confession).  The women telling Tara of retaliation from the Saviors is the fear that the Saviors weren't wiped out which was always in the back of her mind. (How could the women have specifically known that the satellite station was a Savior outpost? Tara never said "Saviors" to them, IIRC).  The woman who helped her represented Tara's hope and humanity (back to the conversation between her and Heath).

So none of it really happened. The still river waters are part of the proof. She didn't get washed away to any sandy beach. The bracelet, the spear...she found all that abandoned somewhere in a cabin or tent on the other side of the river.  Tara swearing never to tell anyone about their camp was herself admitting it was a delusion.

Of course,  as far as the show did happen. But whatever...I'm trying to make this episode more interesting.  :P

It was okay episode for a show that gets 20 to 22 new episodes a year.

However, TWD gets 16 dunno.

Kill anyone who approaches our camp...or is intrigued by the ringing bells...oops! At least they weren't some sort of man-hating crazy cult.

Take out her out in the woods and shoot her, so we won't have to drag her body out...or something. I dunno.

When they cut to the final flachback scene of her and Heath on the bridge, for a second there I was thinking she imagined Oceanside and this was mostly a fantasy episode. I don't know why they'd do that, but...

The fake-out bridge walker was trite....oh, did he die...oh, he didn't.

The bold thing would've been to kill Tara off with no one knowing her fate. Or both her and Heath.

We're supposed to accept she walked all the way back despite the indication that she and Heath had driven a decent ways.

The Wynkahthu Job

Chopper's Alan Rickmanish-voiced droid pal is back!

Okay, so they can breathe in this planet's upper atmosphere? Otherwise they'd have to design space suits for characters.

Hondo, you've worn out your welcome and so has the other guy.

What seems to be Dark Troopers, which I thought were supposed to be a secret project, are mere sentry droids here. The kind they have on all Imperial freighters (?)...except the one Chopper stole last season, apparently.  ??? And conveniently they take prisoners, otherwise Zeb and the disgusting alien guy would be dead. (But the Empire is well known for taking prisoners, actually)

They got their proton bombs, most of them, but what was the unsupervised Hondo loading while Ezra was saving Zeb? They have to the zinger at the end, that Hondo got nothing for his trouble. But how did the Ugnaught know Hondo would even get out with that crate?

The treasures were a vague thing, anyway...they could be priceless artifacts worth more than proton bombs, actually. The Ghost crew may have made the wrong call. Could've saved some history, the kind people would pay for, and made enough black market credits to buy bombs. In short, the Rebels SHOULD have been thinking like pirates, and less like freedom fighters.

Aside from the proton bombs, it was mostly a light-weight filler episode, but better than last weak.  This show's story lines aren't going anywhere fast.

Black Series Republic Trooper Finally Gets Released

This year's Droid Factory/BAD carded series? Cancelled but it exists in a limited capacity? Is the AT-RT driver out there, too?

Well, the Empire thinks a TIE transporter and its four fighters are enough to subjugate an entire world, so...but then again, there was probably less  the population of a US county on the entire planet if all the dissenters could fit on one rebel ship. Lots of sparsely populated worlds. Everyone wants to live on Coruscant, I guess.

The 3 irritating yout's were tributes to Rebels Recon's host Andi Gutierrez and her production crew. But that changes nothing. A terrible episode with references is still a terrible episode.

Wait for next week, which will have Tara and probably no other regular cast members...though at this point, calling her a regular cast member is really a stretch.

But at least they aren't skipping Thanksgiving weekend.

It's odd I've lived to see Gremlins become classic cars that people are sad to see destroyed. My folks had one back in the 70's.

It's like "Carl hasn't done something stupid lately, so let's have him do this..."

Teen romance....yay. It took Carl and Enid over a day to reach Hilltop. Where did they spend the night? A DEAD AND BREAKFAST?

The Saviors night time message didn't add up. They got into the compound, open the gates, parked a car playing loud music, set bonfires all without initially waking anyone up.
