I caught up on the last two episodes and while interesting, just some odd plot things.
In "Rise of the Old Masters", they go into the cell where Luminara is and Kanan looks off to the right while talking to Ezra but doesn't notice the cryonic capsule that holds her dead body?! Plus, I'm assuming that Luminara was a hologram before revealing that she is actually dead. And the fight with the Inquisitor... he had the lightsaber to Kanan's neck and decides to talk instead of striking him down? Only in the movies, I guess. I don't really see the benefits of his double-bladed lightsaber or the spinning feature. I think it would have been nice to see him take out some Jedi first before Kanan and Ezra meet up with him... to establish his bad-assery. Instead, we saw this fight and, well, I wasn't impressed at all with him.
With "Breaking Ranks", does that mean Disney can go back and ret-con all the Jango voices as Stormtrooers in A New Hope ("Close the blast doors")? I always felt that civilians were put in the ranks as Stormtroopers and maybe clones were phased out once the Jedi were gone, so this episode supports that.
Otherwise, it's fun-watching.
