    It certainly seems like based on Pablo Hidalgo's SDCC blog post that Matt Michnovetz' clone commando centered story is for S6. It seems like the only Clone to get a significant stage presence coming up besides an episode or two for Gregor, is Clone Commander Thorn. Whether that is in the Clovis arc or in the season finale arc isn't clear at this point.

    It is interesting to note that in Season 4, there where nine different writer/writer teams for the 22 episodes. So far in the episodes we have seen, we have only seen Chris Collins (5) and Christian Taylor (4) write nine of the 22 and the next four episodes will all be written by Brent Friedman.

    Now you would figure that since Collins wrote Revival he would be writing the rest of the Maul/Mandalore arc but that seems like way to much work for one writer in a season. I am not sure if we have a complete list of the staff writers for Season Five or not, I haven't come across any.

    5.01: Revival: Writer: Chris Collins, Director: Steward Lee
    5.02: A War on Two Fronts: Writer: Chris Collins, Director: Dave Filoni
    5.03: Front Runners: Writer: Chris Collins, Director: Steward Lee
    5.04: The Soft War: Writer: Chris Collins, Director: Kyle Dunlevy
    5.05: Tipping Points: Writer: Chris Collins, Director: Bosco Ng
    5.06: The Gathering: Writer: Christian Taylor, Director: Kyle Dunlevy
    5.07: A Test of Strength: Writer: Christian Taylor, Director: Bosco Ng
    5.08: Bound for Rescue: Writer: Christian Taylor, Director: Brian Kalin O'Connell
    5.09: A Necessary Bond: Writer: Christian Taylor, Director: Danny Keller
    5.10: Secret Weapons: Writer: Brent Friedman, Director:?
    5.11: A Sunny Day in the Void: Writer: Brent Friedman, Director:?
    5.12: Missing in Action: Writer: Brent Friedman, Director: ?
    5.13: Point of No Return: Writer: Brent Friedman, Director: ?
    5.14: An Old Friend: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.15: The Rise of Clovis: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.16: Crisis at the Heart: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.17: Eminence: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.18: Shades of Reason: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.19: The Lawless: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.20: Title ?: Writer: ? Director: ?
    5.21: Title ?: Writer: ? Director: ?

    Alright! Brent Friedman penned the droid arc. There is hope yet for it.

    ^Totally with ya, bro. I'm really just glad to see the name of a writer who I'm reasonably sure knows what he's doing come up.

    Do we know when the break is coming? How many episodes will we get before that? I am hoping to see at least up to the "Void" episode as it sounded like an interesting one when Filoni teased it.

    Something doesnt make sense.Shadow Conspiracy is coming out on January 1st and then Maul arc is coming after that.Dont think they would let the book out with whole story first because then episodes wont be as fun if people know everything by then.

    He could be even for the little time he is on.

    You have a point but maybe they will move the release date of the book again.

    Just saw a preview on CN that showed a pilot battle droid with no backpack, R2 was in the scene so it's probably from the Droid arc when they're on the Separatist frigate.

    Sweet, the little pit droid reminds me of Alpha 5, lol. If only they had gotten Richard Horvitz to voice him. TCW will get props if he says the line. That was kinda funny although the so called future Brigadier General may be a little obnoxious. Gonna be interesting to see what goes down on that cruiser. Thanks. =D

    The snail-alien was annoying but I do have a trust in Brent Friedman's writing abilities.

    I trust him. I'm a total mook for it but I have to admit I laughed at the pit droid's randomness and cartoony run in with the wall. I got a bad feeling I'm gonna like him.

    It doesn't say on Wookieepedia either. I'm not sure to be honest.

    The voice of the snail dude is very familiar. I'm trying very hard to place it.

    After the droid arc it's the Clovis arc, so it's still a while before we get more Maul.
