Duchess of Mandalore First episode of the arc without an excellent cookie. Sweet shot of a CIS fleet, complete with Lucrehulk and Vultures on patrol. We also get to see Mandos gearing up for war. Oh yeah, it never comes, though. Good idea, TCW. lol @ the painting of Satine. For some reason the Senate just puts me to sleep. I was really struggling to maintain attention. Satine and Kenobi just strike me as incompatible. Their differences are deep, their arguments are not trivial. Stuff happens, but I don't care about any of it. The chase scenes are just coma-inducing. Okay, now they want to kill Satine. They've had several easy opportunities to kill her before this throughout the arc, but for some reason did not. I don't see why they couldn't have killed her before. I don't even care why. Kenobi and Satine choose the worst meeting place ever. It's out in the open and full of police droids. You're telling me there was no better place on all of Coruscant? lol, the Mando assassin just drops a grenade at Satine's feet. I guess the time for subtlety is over. But oh hey, Kenobi drops his lightsaber AGAIN. It's like the Mandos secrete some kind of chemical that makes their enemies' hands slippery. I think I just noticed this for the first time, but why does the Senate meet in the dark? Don't they have lights in that damn building? It's pretty spooky. Jerec (not the cool one) says "We've been training for this. We can stop them." Didn't look that way in the Mauldalore arc. Or any of the Mando episodes, really. They were having a hard time handling merchants/smugglers in Corruption. Padme had to step in and go to work. Having Satine and Kenobi spew the "moral of the story" at the end was just painfully tedious and contrived. This episode could be used to cure insomnia. 1/10 So much for that arc. I was hoping to find something noteworthy from Pre Viszla, but I didn't get it, nor did I get anything to endear me to Satine/Kenobi. I'll be skipping Senate Murders. **** that noise.
