Some thoughts I had on the finale...
-Trandoshans get alllllllllll da ladies. Jockin' the Wookiees and slappin' da ho's, that's livin' Trandoshan style.
These guys were very Predator obviously, but I still liked them. They've always been written this way, actually, and that the hunt is just part of their culture, so it was really neat seeing this in action with their kind of hethan dancing around a fire and stuff.
-LOVE LOVE LOVE the pelts/trophies... It was a little gruesome, and it's also something some EU has done in the past, and it was too awesome to see it in the show.
-Did anyone else notice how true to the Republic Commando game the Trandoshans were? Their looks, their costumes, and even the pump shotgun-style blaster? I really appreciated that they expanded on the RC Game's interpretation of Trandoshan Slavers from the game.
-I liked Yoda silently watching Anakin & Ahsoka... And I liked Plo Koon recognizing Anakin's overly attached nature with his padawan. Again, more foreshadowing on Anakin's view of himself and how things play out, but it's really neat to see it pertain in an important way to the main character and his future.
-The droid fort was kind of dumb... You have nothing to fire back with? Seriously?
-I'm curious what happens to the rescued Younglings and are they taken in and their training continued?
-The weird appearance of the Bounty Hunters in their ship makes you thinkt hey have some broader role to play at some point, which may pertain to why they're in this area anyway. Just seemed odd that they were there like a taxi service, so I'm just assuming there is more to that. Surely Wookiee's have their own ships in some capacity.
Overall though, I liked the finale... I thought it was cool, and I liked Chewbacca more. I wish we could've seen some kind of interaction with Ahsoka, Yoda, and Chewbacca, so we could've seen the tie-in to ROTS when Yoda says he has good relations with them and will go lead their defense. It just would've been nice to see why/how he got involved with them, and if Ahsoka helped that along or whatnot, thanks to her helping Chewbacca.
I thought the Trandoshans were a little too tough for my liking... I also thought it was very stupid when Ahsoka doesn't let that youngling kill the Trandoshan. Maybe it was the way the girl was doing it, but still it was sort of meh because you're not in a situation where taking prisoners is an option really, and killing to defend yourself is completely fair I like to think.
Anyway, great finale I thought. I'll be jonesin' for more, but it's nice having Summer off from the series. I like the schedule they're on.
