    I like to think that Rex was with Vader when the jedi temple was purged and was killed by Obi Wan or Yoda when they infiltrated the temple as he's a clone and was bred to follow orders for the republic

    Mandalor is done as its fell into darkness and the dark times are about to fall over the whole galaxy.

    Ashoka has left the order and would probably hide once order 66 takes place and may even think the jedi had tried to overthrow palpatine as they didnt trust her either.

    Darth Maul is the only plot hole that must be addressed even if he's disected in a lab as one of sidious's experiments similar to how Plageuis did to his masters apprentice.

    I keep saying we really should get a novel dealing with many of the clones introduced in this series. What better way to understand their motivations and their struggle (or lack thereof?) during Order 66?

    A novel is sadly probably how all the loose ends are sorted out

    Would be cool to see a Tales from Jabba's Palace approach, with multiple short stories that tie in with each other. "Tales from the Clone Army"?

    I can't find it, but I thought I remembered reading that George Lucas said something to the effect of "we're not making that mistake again" with regards to killing off Darth Maul in TCW

    George did indeed make that comment. It was brought up in an interview between Eric Goldman from IGN and either Dave Filoni or Sam Witwer. I'm leaning toward the latter, but I'm not 100% sure. Sam Witwer did an interview toward the very end of season 5 after the Mandalore arc. Filoni did the big post-season 5 finale interview and another about a month earlier with IGN.

    Look Filoni is a company man and probably more so that that producer Rick M whatever. They tell you what they want to hear. Forget the extra content we ain't getting jack. It might be just two extra episodes on the season 5 release to make it 22 episodes per season. With the way people are getting laid off and stuff cancelled its over. I just want to see the release of Crucible and the three sword of the jedi books so they can end that part of the EU. After that, you can keep star wars and all the baloney. By the way, you better download those youtube videos that have all that stuff from detours and 1313, cause its history..................................history it ain't coming back

    Interesting stuff on the Fett related front... Kotaku got word today on the cancelled 1313 game... apparently the last incarnation of it was going to feature Boba Fett at GL's request. They received some concept art which features Highsinger and Bossk also:
    http://kotaku.com/before-it-was-cancelled-star-wars-1313-was-going-to-be-470003660

    This is interesting to TCW fans since it features Fett and his TCW era Bounty Hunting companions and 1313 was set between Ep 3 and 4. Question on the TCW front would be how far along on his Bounty Hunter path were they planning on taking Fett in the show, and how would it have tied together with 1313? Did they cancel some of his TCW episodes due to his being retro-fitted into 1313 instead?

    So we are literally getting no resolution for the character who needs it the most: Maul. Way to go Disney, you ******bags.

    Wow! I like the Boba Fett costume! Wonder if that is what they had planned for TCW?

    I think we can only now hope for a dark times show to feature fett
    i started re reading book of sith today and 1 of palpatines entrys at the start of the book mentions Ventress and that she went back to the nightsisters and disapeared.
    i know she already did that and came back but im telling myself she went back and stayed there so thats her story sorted out

    I really doubt this new show will be a Dark Times show. I have a feeling that it will be some show about Luke Skywalker and the New Republic soon after RotJ.

    Anyways though, another thing that needed resolution was the Zillo Beast. Palpatine told Dr. Boll he wanted her to clone it, and we will probably never get a resolution on that story as to what he planned to do with it. If that is never resolved, I'm just gonna say he wanted to use some of the scales from the beast as some sort of plating in the Death Star.

    That's just the classic monster movie, "It's over... or is it?".

    Ever since those episodes aired, I've seen people say this needs to be wrapped up. Pretty much every scene is an homage in those two episodes. :p

    They never intended to follow up on that, according to Filoni in the accompanying video...

    I don't know, I kind of like when TCW leaves certain things up in the air. Like Zillo Beast, I could take or leave a follow-up story arc. On one hand it could have been a cool story, on the other hand the mere fact that the Zillo Beast (like Maul) is being sent into Palpatine's scary secret cabinet makes Palpatine all the more scary. Like a spider who spins his web, and those who get caught in it may never see the light of day again. It also leaves room for future comics/movies/games. I guess the only big negative is that pre-Disney, that possibility could very well happen. Now, it feels like all the potential loose ends will never be resolved.

    This was posted in a Q&A by Filoni last year...

    Kristin Shetter Gaughan
    My 13 year old son is a huge fan; thank you for making a show that the whole family can enjoy together. My son's questions are: Will we see Tuskan Raiders in the Clone Wars? and Is there going to be any in depth look at the ancient Sith or go to any of the Sith worlds? and Will we see Hondo Ohnaka (a family favorite character!) again? Thank you!

    Hondo – YES
    Tuskan Raiders – YES (but in the future, not soon)
    Sith - …hmmm…hmmm… patience. Sith have patience, that’s how they survived. So have patience. You will see. Just have patience.


    So could this arc with Wolffe be the Tusken Raiders and this sith thing he is hinting at?

    It's not a resolution though because we don't know what happens to her. You can't just create a major character who has a profound influence on the movie characters and then leave her fate unexplained. Did she die in Order 66 or did she live into the OT era? If she did why did she do nothing to combat the Empire and why is there no mention of her at all?

    She was a TCW creation, she existed within that show and should have a fate resolved within it. Otherwise you get endless annoying fan speculation as to whether she will be in Episode VII or some such nonsense.



    Shaak Ti at least had a death put into The Force Unleashed game, but given Disney have now shut down LucasArts too we can't even get that for Ahsoka.

    Unless the plan is to have her appear in a spin-off movie.

    There is also the known Yoda arc as per Tom Kane and the Bounty Arc which ties up the fates of some of the characters though we don't know if those ones will be released but if that article is accurate it sounds like anything that was in production will be finished and released.
