    It was confirmed by Filoni after the episode aired that the two lightsabers he used where the two he used to fight Mace and Yoda respectively, it may have been harder to tell that one was an electrum hilt vs a dark tinted hilt as the setting was far darker.

    I seem to recall way back when ROTS released there were debates on if Sidious used the same sabre, and the pictures suggested it was the same sabre, the dark and light appearance difference was simply lighting difference.
    So two the same in CW makes sense.

    That makes sense. Remember, Sidious was originally supposed to fight Mace with Anakin's saber, though this was changed and they instead gave Palpatine his own saber in pickup shots (there are still frames in the film in which you can see Sidious with Anakin's hilt). So I highly doubt they built a second saber prop. I don't know that for a fact, but I'd imagine they just recycled the same prop for pickups and made up some story as to why he had a second one. Because originally there was only supposed to be one - the one he uses in his fight against Yoda.

    Yep. The stupid statue-stash-spot was only created because they hacked the turn, but I digress.:p

    If Zillo Beast gets a callback before the series ends, I will be a very happy man.

    Haha, yeah... like his appearance in the episode wasn't epic enough.

    The series has gotten much better with continuity nods. Season 5 feels connected together and this arc did a great job connecting the older Mando eps together. I like the way the series has gotten more linear. I figured that it would start weaving things together as we got closer to the and and move away the the episodic format.

    I don't think Season 5 was good at all until this past arc saved it. But I definitely agree that I prefer the more linear storytelling approach now.

    Ovrer in the Movie-Community-Obi-Wan thread a poster asked about Satine's funeral, which got me to thinking (I know, trouble).

    Do any of you think there was time for Maul to order Satine's body removed before Sids came in?

    Regardless of the above, a very random thought: Is it possible they'll release holophotos/autopsy report something like that indicating she was killed by a "lightsaber" and try to blame it on "a" Jedi or Obi-Wan specifically?

    I don't think its been as terrible as even I have made it out to be at times. I mean season 5 premiered strong. Onderon was bad. Young Jedi has two excellent episodes in it and is definitely fun and rewatchable, the droid arc even has two episodes I really enjoyed in it, and now this arc "Lawless" ended is one of the strongest arcs so far. I think it topped the Rako Hardeen arc. I'd say the first half is about as strong a season 4 was before we hit Umbara and better than the first half of season 3. The main drawback has been the four part arcs which made the season feel so short and condensed, IMO.

    Hmmm... now we're getting into next episode territory. I don't remember if I saw the body when Sids walked in. I think there is a good chance it'll just get tossed out on the street where maybe Bo can recover it for a funeral. I have a funny thought about this but, not in this thread. We'll need to move for it.

    Other than two door-guards, the throne room was empty when Sidious entered to face the Grim Twins.

    Hmm... nevermind. I wonder if we're ever hear about a funeral or see one.

    I'd be pretty interested to see a funeral for Satine, for several reasons: checking in on Obi-Wan's emotional state, seeing whether or not Bo-Katan would attend, and contrasting New Mandalorian funeral habits with traditional clan practices.

    Could be interesting. I'm kinda interested in the back story between Satine and Bo. Sounds like the makings for a good soap. Maybe we'll see that coffin yet.

    What are traditional Mandalorian funeral rites? And would a deposed Duchess get those rites? (Had Maul already given orders on how to dispose of her body?)

    That's a question. Maul strikes me as the kind of guy who would just dump a body out back. But that might not look real good to citizens walking by. I don't recall anyone shouting for Satine's head. Could have been burned or maybe Savage ate her? Actually I'd like to think Bo was able to retrieve the body.

    He belched and called her an "appetizer." :oops:

    Someone elsewhere suggested Almec "disposed" of her...that's possible.

    So Palpatine recovered the saber that Mace kicked out the window? Convenient...

    I'm surprised that:
    * he could even find it
    * it was undamaged
    * some Coruscant dweller didn't just grab it before he got to it

    Maybe it had a tracking device? :p

    A clap-on device would work. I can see him, cackling and clapping as he tries to find it.
