I'm with McMetal on this episode, wasn't very interesting. I did appreciate the writers trying to add some depth to the Padme and Anakin relationship (more than them longing for each other over a holigram transmission) but it just didn't feel complete enough. Maybe I was expecting Anakin to have to be more of a hero to save Padme. Did seem a bit cowardly to leave Senator whats his name on to his fate, but then again Anakin has already demonstrated his willingness to bend/break the rules when it comes to Padme. Not sure, but it feels like since we didn't see him get whats coming to him, the Ex will pop back up at a later point. Not sure how, but seems that's a character that could be useful, the vengeful ex-lover/separatist.
