Tonight's episode was a doozie for "plot".
It answered some Q's and raised some others... Overall it gets a thumbs up from me. Jumping from one story arc to another sucked, but now that they're moving THIS story arc along it's cool. The Mon Calamari episode with Fisto STILL doesn't fit, and is definitely my least favorite.
So Assajj is a wanna-be sith which I sorta figured was going to be the story. She's turning into a pawn, which is cool, because she thinks so highly of herself. I'm curious if Dooku's just an unwitting pawn also though? Hmmmm
Her sabres are now the curved-hilt reds we have known and loved, so we're cookin' there I guess... She was given them as a gift after Dooku whipped her good in battle (twice), and subsequently destroyed her old blue/green combo.
I'm guessing she is a fallen Jedi of some sort? Trained in the Jedi arts, but her training was abandoned because of her emotional state?
It's kinda cool having Sinead O'Connor go balistic and get sabres and want to be a Sith Lord. It's also kinda cool that she's a weakling when it boils down to it, and that she'll be punked out by Anakin probably.
Very neat episode, lots of Dialogue, and the first sighting of Lord Sidious... Good overall in this viewer's opinion.
