    Now see, what you don't realize is I'm being sarcastic. You on the other hand are being disgusting. That very concept is vile.

    Sidious makes it a 10. I can overlook all my usual flaws and complaints because in the past 5 seasons of watching this show, I've never rewatched a scene more than once or twice as much as I've watched all the Sidious scenes on youtube and on my tv. Sure there were some irksome things, but overall they aren't enough to make me bump the grade down.

    I've always narrowed down my problems with most episodes as Character fitting the plot. In this instance, character perfectly fit the plot. It made sense that Palpatine was the one to deal with Maul. And he did so with magnificent style and ruthless efficiency. Likewise, it made sense for Obi-Wan to attempt to rescue Satine and how he handled her death was perfectly in character for him. This was an episode that truly felt like the films. Sure some things were rushed and some things were unnecessary. But so were parts in the films. For the first time in a long time, this felt like Star Wars and wrapped up a great arc perfectly. My only complaint is that we won't see the fallout until next season.

    10/10

    Well I wasn't thinking it as being vile. A combination of my two favorite clone wars characters would be cool. You're thinking too much on the means of how that child gets created. I'm just thinking about the end result. A person 1/2 Ahsoka and 1/2 Savage would be cool is all I'm saying.

    If there was ever a case for abortion, this would be it. An Ahsoka/Savage lovechild? No-one wants that.

    I'm going to go ahead and assume Talzin's magick made him infertile. Safer, and less vomit inducing, that way.

    How ironic that the horniest man in the galaxy is sterile.

    I'm not entirely sure if they have abortion in the SW universe, or it may be very illegal. Considering all that happened in ROTS

    Padme wanted the babies? And at the end Padme was dying regardless of the pregnancy, the only thing they could do was try to save the babies.

    If there's Death Sticks, pretty sure there's abortion. Star Wars doesn't tend to touch these kinds of issues though, so I highly doubt it'll ever be mentioned.

    A little late for the party I am, but I am a fan of the episode.

    A 4 from me, the more I watch the episode... the more I don't enjoy it.

    Totally different from the epic fest that was "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much"...

    I like The Jedi Who Knew Too Much a lot as well, but I'm not crazy about the choice to spend about half the episode on the chase scene. One thing I really like about this season's whole Darth Maul arc including this episode is that the story moves so fast, there's nothing that feels stretched like that.

    What are death sticks? Are they sticks made out of death or what?

    "Roz, you still got a chemical analysis droid on your station? I've got a feeling these aren't ordinary death sticks. I'm transmitting a sample to you; let me know if you find anything unusual."

    "Jango, you were right about those death sticks. The main ingredient in death sticks is the common Ixetal plant. But this one's loaded with a powerful neurotoxin. No record of it. Totally untraceable."

    Oh, I guess that post was sarcasm. It's a little hard to pick that up over text, my apologies for misinterpreting it.

    So untraceable that she was able to differentiate the Death Sticks? :p
