Wow, Asajj once had hair?!
That was probably the most surprising part of the episode for me...
Oh, and to address her backstory, first, for those wondering about her (I've read all the comic/books with her in them), she was originally trained on Rattatak as a Jedi by Ky Narec (the Jedi who found her) after he crash-lands on the planet, but he was killed when a bunch of warlords saw how powerful they were becoming and decided to kill both of them. The fact that he was killed in the episode is consistent with her original backstory. She then falls to the darkside and years later meets Dooku, and is brainwashed by Dooku to think that the Jedi abandoned both her and her master to die, which is why she hates them so much. Aurra Sing's story is somewhat similar, but hers is that she was kidnapped by pirates, and is led to believe that her Master abandoned her, which is also why Aurra hates the Jedi.
I loved how Sidious totally snapped at Dooku, we've never seen that before! Usually it's always been, "You have done well, blah blah" but in this scene, he's pretty much saying, "Kill her, or I kill YOU!"
I thought it was interesting how Dooku tried to stand up for Asajj - he said she was "important" to him.
The 3-way duel between Anakin, Obi and Asajj was EPIC!! She totally could have kicked their asses - she just picked them up with the Force and totally went The Force Unleashed with them! That was probably my favorite part of the episode! It was a shock to see how desperate she was after they disarmed her and pointed their lightsabers at her.
The Dooku fight was cool also, I loved how after he was disarmed, Asajj just walked right up to him and was preparing for the final blow. That was a very powerful scene.
I feel kind of cheated Savage wasn't in this episode, considering he's supposed to be the star of only 3 episodes. Next week should be a good one for sure.
