    I used to replay XWA every couple years, but it's been a dog's age at this point.

    Especially given the double-bladed sabers, Jedi Shadows, perhaps? Some kind of elite Temple guard, if nothing else.

    I dun get it.

    Personally, I can't help but think they are jedi shadows. But maybe that is because I always pictured Shadows as being vaguely ninja like.
    Edit: I agree R_Zion.

    Some other interesting screenshots:

    Nothing 1984 going on here. Not at all.

    Yeah, Juggernaughts. Those have been criminally underused.

    Also, maybe it is just the lighting, but I think that warship is imperial gunmetal gray instead or republic red and white.

    Overall: really makes me think of Republic Commando.

    My first thought was "Jedi Temple Training Droids", but who knows.

    Wow, the Republic's changing fast. Every shot of Coruscant in that trailer screams Empire, right down to Palpatine sitting in his throne flanked by royal guards. The shot of the military converging around the red flags was especially powerful. I have a feeling Palpatine's going to make a major power grab in this arc.

    Huh, Tarkin's at the Jedi funeral.

    "There are going to be Jedi who disappoint us".... Not quite sure how to take that; a Jedi goes dark/rogue and they go after them:confused:

    Didn't you guys see the other preview?

    A Jedi who hates the Clone Wars turns traitor, resulting in the explosion... or at least that's the official story that Anakin and Ahsoka are going on when they start this story, anyways.

    Though it seems like Ahsoka will be framed.

    Ventress is also involved somehow.

    I'm sure the arc will end on at least one "happy" note, with the result being that the Jedi stay on in the military despite public outcry... of course, anyone who's seen ROTS should know that this will be the Jedi's downfall.

    So Ahsoka is blamed for...whatever, excommunicated, and hooks up with Ventress.
    Right? Just my read, but it seems pretty clear to me.

    Yeah, pretty much. I would probably phrase it differently, though... :p

    I'm interested. TCW always has cool trailers, but after the Maul arc, I'm hopeful about this arc.

    Is that Palpatine, in his Chancellor clothes, being attacked by a Jedi with a blue lightsaber at the end, then going all ninja on him? At 1:27-1:29 ? (you can see part of it if your mouse hovers over 1:28)

    It sure looks like it. Gray hair, the reptillian black leather outfit that Palpatine wore at the begnning of ROTS.... looks like the Jedi with a Blue Lightsaber attacks him, then Palpatine goes sideways and swings around to knock the Jedi out.

    THAT guy with the blue lightsaber is probably the Jedi Traitor, who planted the explosion... they did say he was disillusioned with the war and thought it was meaninless... he must have discovered Palpatine's true identity!

    I think that's Anakin and Asajj.

    Since when does Assaj have short, gray hair?




    EDIT: Nevermind, it is her... :(

    Don't go in LACWAC. Most of the plot's been revealed in detail, including characters who die.

    And yeah, your outline's correct.

    20 credits says Anakin wraps Ventress in electrical cables and throws her off the side of a Coruscant skyscraper.

    Republic credits are no good out here. I need something more real.

    I'm also willing to gamble with spice, adegan crystals and whaladon meat. Take your pick. :p

    I don't know about the specifics of the cables, but if they were to end Ventress' series presence with an Anakin duel on Coruscant resulting in ambiguous "death," that would go a long way with patching up what's left of Obsession.

    While the Jedi will remain involved in military affairs, if I recall correctly, their role will be diminished as the future Moffs like Tarkin begin gaining power and influence over military affairs. This actually fits with previously established canon very, very well, which states that it was exactly that which happened (The galactic senate was made irrelevant by laws which actually gave control of the galaxy to regional governors, even before the Jedi fell). Remember, the Empire did not suddenly arise overnight. By the time we reach Episode III, the Republic is the Empire in all but name. Imperial Commanders like Tarkin and Yularren gain greater influence over military affairs, while political power is increasingly concentrated in the center. More to the point, this arc shows us that public opinion of the jedi was also shifting against them, making the seemingly sudden outcome of order 66 seem far less sudden. Palpatine may have pulled out the rug from under the Jedi by ep 3, but he had been slowly reaching in to grab the rug for a very long time. I look forward to seeing this demonstrated onscreen.

    Well Tarkin was a Moff in RotS, I feel at the end of this season we'll have Moff Tarkin.

    So according to our Canadian friends in LACWAC who've already seen tomorrow's episode, we get a cameo appearance by [hl=black]Cin Drallig[/hl] of all people.

    Q -- TOS says that it's a 4 part finale. Does that mean that we'll be getting the finale over the next 4 weeks, or will we be getting a whole ton of stuff tomorrow?
