Barriss can get the drop on Ventress?  Really?

Ventress can almost kill her master, Luminara, but then somehow Barriss pulls a "B**** please" and knocks her down.

It also bugged me that she could adequately use two lightsabers and totally whup Ahsoka's ass.

And you thought Darth Maul was the badass of TCW?

Barriss was the real badass all along. ::)

I wish Filoni thought these things over more. Cuz first Ahsoka can holdup her own against General Grievous and Asajj Ventress, two famed Jedi-killers known throughout the galaxy, yet somehow Barris Offee can now totally just toss her around like Sidious did to Maul.

I think the cloaked lady is Barriss too. She framed Asoka and pumelled her.
But there is a leit motif=some inactive jedi or sith appear or come back reloaded.

Anakin looks frustrated, coz this arch is going to put him in the role of judge rather than fighter.

Well balanced sort of aliens, the jabba palace snake, the braniac guy,
I really liked them. But somebody can tell me please, why TCW spot Ithorians so fatty, with wide torsos, while rodians
are very skinny in contrast?

The Barriss angle is interesting.  She was after all one of the Jedi who had been introduced in Attack Of The Clones whose fate we never witnessed in Revenge of the Sith.  There was an Order 66 scene featuring Barriss in the comic adaptation of ROTS, but not the film.

I also really liked that smaller gunship.  It was almost like a cross between a Republic Gunship and a TIE Interceptor, but with the cockpit of the Virago.

If you want confirmation of the traitor in the Season 5 finale, watch until the end of this teaser from Teletoon.

LOL, yeah, I have always thought one of the weakest parts of this show is they have improbable pwnage by various people at various times that is just not realistic. (like Cad Bane always clowning the jedi) For sure you can add Barriss toasting Asajj to that list.

Must be the lingering effects of the brain worms?

The toy fodder is just a cruel tease at this point. Those TIE Gunship hybrids were insanely cool. The police droids and armored Ventress were pretty damn sweet as well. So, so much good stuff left on the table with this line, ugh.

Once again Tarkin comes off like a jackhole. What evidence dude? Seriously, produce the security tapes of her murdering those clones or STFU already.

This episode did kinda make me want to play that 1313 video game or whatever though. Pretty cool Megacity/Blade Runner type stuff going on there...

I think Tarkin's angle is largely that they're a wholely separate entity, and they don't have to provide the Jedi Council with ANYTHING they don't wish to.  THey're the authority on this matter and the Jedi are ultimately powerless over it.  He can say they have proof and they can take her into custody...  It's one of the only things that actually, to me, really stands out as cool in this arc, as another facet of the Empire blossoming sort of.

The gunships...  I hate them.  I don't care for the random speeders either though.  Like the Jedi have the weird one the show designed, but then there's that little one Obi's in, in ROTS too.  It's odd all these designs, so the new weird gunship maybe fits in with the old gunship, I just think it's redundant and unnecessary...  If they were making toys it'd make more sense.

I like the hype around 1313 with this episode even though the game's not had a major update in a while even.  I enjoy seeing this cavernous "core" with other levels of the planet though, in the show and any other way they want to show them.  Coruscant's fascinating like that.

One of the biggest flaws the show will ever have though, to me, is the inability for them to use major baddies in good ways.  Grievous killed Vebb but did very little else.  Tartakovsky set Grievous up so much better...  Lucas then proceded to destroy any actual power that character wielded.

Likewise, too much Dooku meeting the enemy when he should have all the minions the EU provided, doing that dirty work.

I scoffed watching that teaser.

Even having Anakin have an actual duel with that person goes back to the whole argument that it's stupid that Ahsoka can take on Grievous, Barriss can take on Asajj, Cad Bane can take the Jedi... etc.

Loving Tim "Dr Frank N Furter" Curry as the Emperor...that is some casting genius right there. Seems like a waste to use him for just one episode though.

Right, Lucasfilm? RIGHT?!?!

I've never heard of a show getting canceled AFTER they had already started shooting the next season. Please don't be the first!

That's a little strange. Sucks that Ian Abercrombie died before they finished the season.  :(

I will want to resume all spoilers

Tarkin demanded death penalty from beginning

Palpatine looks serious but cold, nobody suspects of him, coz he lets Tarkin speaks the prosecution, while Padme speaks the defense.

Jedi donīt show support to Ashoka.... this demonstrates at this point for them is more important to keep their relationship with the Senate.

Anakin doesnīt speak in the trial of the senate, only in the jedi council.... TCW mantains him as a man of action rather than a negotiator or a lawyer, in ultimate case,  this role is up to his wife Padme Amidala.


As the most outstanding Jedi are capable of love (Anakin loves his wife and has appreciation for his padawan, Obi Wan loved in a courtoise way Satine, without material cosumption of Eros), the Sith are presented the most tanatical as possible.


I think one of the reasons for Maul to kill Satine Kryze was his incapability for Eros, let me explain.

Maul lost his lower section: pelvis and legs, he wont be capable to reproduce, maybe he is able to eliminate natural wastes from a dispositive like a manhole. Maul wonīt be able for pleasure never.


So Maul, from a certain point of view was jealous of the love which was opening a door for Obi Wan, he envied what made his Nemesis complete while made him look more mutilated in contrast.



I think we could recall that Sidious didnīt have a lover, and that could be coherent, because he is no tied to familiy, children, he never exposes weakneses to his foes neither to his allies (who could be tempted to betrail him too).

But Love and pleasure is another motivation of Power, a natural need too. A king or an emperor would contemplate it in his life, because it would be so hard to be deprived permanently from those satisfactions.

I have hated the very thought that Anakin had a Padawn we never heard or knew about.  I never really cared at all for the character of Ahsoka ever...so, major plot holes and made up plot lines aside, this arc was amazing and today was really well done.  It shows the Jedi really don't know what they are doing.  The last scenes were amazing, the score the dialogue "I know". Season 5 was amazing top to bottom and I am really looking forward to Season 6!
