    Well, 1 more episode until I stop being special ;). Any last spoiler questions (to the extent of my recollection) before my return to normalcy (as best as one can define my default state as "normal" ;) ]-} )?

    Did the Republic lose the Florrum system yet or does that happen in the last episode of this arc?
    What happens after Hondo shows up in the Slave I?

    Crikey. Hondo in the Slave I versus Grievous? That epic finale almost sounds like overkill.:eek:

    I recall the clip from the interview of Grievous seemingly looking into the barrel of a cannon. Got ya.

    Does Slave I crash again?

    I don't think there's much in the way of specific system control comments other than the visuals of Grievous's forces taking over Florrum- though they might make a reference to it in the epilogue. Other than that, the reference in Revival is probably meant to be the indication of continued control.

    The Slave I/Grievous situation is brief. In fact, IIRC, Hondo could have wiped Grievous out (or at least given him a heavy bombardment) but just flys off instead.

    No crashing.

    Is that the last scene with Grievous in the episode, with Grievous just watching it fly off?

    Something to that effect, yes, I believe so. I think he laughs it off though.

    Dear @The2ndQuest,

    So things work out for Grievous?! Nice... He doesn't get "Shadow Warrior"-ed!?

    THAT IS GREAT NEWS!

    I am dying for this episode.



    Sounds like awesome fan service.

    If only Boba was here so the meeting in "A New Threat" was even greater.
    Fett: General Grievous, I knew we'd meet again.
    Grievous: After defeating me on Florrum, I will happily separate your head from the rest of your body!
    Fett: That's really assuring of you, General.
    And then Hondo flies in.

    Well, he's forced to let Ahsoka and co go at (big) gunpoint but wins Florum. "Loses the battle, wins the war" type stuff.

    Though, I actually liked the Shadow Warrior Grievous vs Gungans scene with Tarpals last stand. If only the rest of the episode had been as great as that. Anything that can make TPM semi-relevant to the saga only helps SW, IMO.

    Though the Republic should have immediately instituted a Gungan hit squad targeting grievous from that point on. ;)

    If he wins Florrum then that means "Wins the battle, loses the war" type stuff.

    Does that mean, after Grievous destroys the base, he has no further interest in the planet and leaves?
    @The2ndQuest What does the Slave I look like, color wise?

    Would be funny to see some Weequay Pirates tackle Grievous like the Dead Night-Sisters did in that episode [face_laugh]

    Well, yeah and Grievous pwns them like the zombies.

    Nice... I was assuming Hondo changed it up.

    Was that the sound of Huyang screaming after R2-D2 pushes him onto the landspeeder? Nice to see that David Tennant will get another speaking role in this episode. Between the instantly likeable droid, Hondo's usual antics and Grievous returning to his DHC/ROTS blend of competence and cowardice, this episode will not be for want of characters with major presence.
