    Hmm...Cody's a main character but not Rex? Interesting.

    Weird that they didn't post a new webcomic with the Episode Guide. Since the webcomics are not lead-ins to the episodes anymore, could we go without one for this episode?

    :/ That's weird.

    It's weird that they chose Mustafar for the planet, I wonder if it will be another majorly important fight on it, like Anakin and Obi-Wan's.
    I'm guessing Mahtee Dunn is the kidnapped Rodian Kid.

    They're not? The Hunting the Hunters os a lead-in to Holocron Heist, and Act of Instinct is a leas-in to Cargo of Doom.

    The webcomic will interweave with the episodes, but it will not always act as episode lead-ins like we were used to.

    Yeah, they want to tell a longer story with Season 2's webcomics, so it'll be more of a running side-story that connects and weaves in and out of the episodes.

    Do they not have the video previews anymore?


    Looks like a lot of characters for one episode, I'm pretty excited.

    It seems publishing the Episode Guide so early came at a price. They don't have the new webcomic ready nor the video preview up...

    Weird that Commander Cody is a main character and not Rex. Maybe they mixed it up?

    Bout time Cody got some solo time. He was underplayed in Season One, since he's was backing the also underutilized Obi-Wan. With more Kenobi time, naturally we should get more Cody.

    I hope Mustafar only plays a small role in the episode.Other than that, looks good

    I have to say i HATE the idea of showing Mustafar in the CW show. Its like a sell out. To me its just like showing Hoth before TESB in a TV show about the rebels vs. the empire. Same thing. Should be left alone.

    I remember at the beginning of this series George wanted to stay away from the movie planets other than Coruscant. They decided to include Tatooine in the films, Naboo in season 1, and now in the first 5 episodes of season 2 were getting Felucia, Mustafar and Geonosis. To me, this takes away from their significance and individuality from the movies. Fine, Felcuia was very brief and Naboo actually worked within the series, but Geonosis and Mustafar seem like overkill.

    As long as mustafar plays a small part, I'm okay with it. I just find it hilarious that they wanted to explore new worlds in the Clone wars and stray from the movie worlds, yet they the list of movie planets being included in the series just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

    Anywho, cant wait for this ep! Looks good!!

    Technically Felucia would have been a Season 1 appearance since it was just pushed back to Season 2.

    Anyways, yeah, I'm a little wary of the use of Mustafar. I'm not totally against it being used- unlike (to use the example mentioned above) Hoth, it's a planet with active mining/refinement operations, installations and sentient lifeforms, so it should be a planet usable within a context prior to the film's events- like Bespin.

    But I do find it off-putting if it ends up being significantly known to the Jedi- it's supposed to be a a Confederate stronghold, which is why Sidious and Grievous supposedly send the Seppie leaders there in ROTS.

    That bothers me as well. The preview videos can give us a first look at the episode. now we know about nothing.

    I don't think so. I think Mathee Dunn is the Rodian teenager who says "you'll never get them" to Obi-Wan in the CN preview. Yoda says that he has been consumed by the dark side of the force.

    I'm a bit worried about the ammount that seems to be making an appearance in this episode. Five planets and ten listed characters seems a bit much for a twenty minute episode. It's the same as the third Pirates of the Caribbean or Spiderman film. The product wasn't bad there was just too much crammed into the given time.

    It could be just flashes, remember that in ROTS we had some 5 new planets in just as many minutes.

    Yeah, I'm really not sure if I like this Mustafar business. I mean I love the place, but i.m.o. they should leave it alone.

    Funny how no one seems concerned they're also going back to Naboo in this episode.

    Is this going to be the first episode in which we see both Sidious and Palpatine? Somehow that's quite cool.

    Actually, I rather like the use of Falucia. It is the capital of the Commerce Guild (Or the Corporate Alliance, I can never keep them straight). It would make sense if it was attacked early in the war.

    Especially since the Republic lost. They lose, are setback in the whole area, leave it alone, come back at the end of the war. Like MacArthur and his return to the Philippines.

    Oh yeah, I just saw the preview again and realized there was an older Rodian and the younger one that gets captured. Thanks FistoFan :]

    I really wish they hadn't used Mustafar. For one thing, it's a great safe place to keep small children =p But more so, I think it really it's overkill. Mustafar is important to ROTS, and hopefully it won't be majorly important in this episode too. Maybe it's only mentioned. I hope.

    <3 I love Pirates. Not nearly as much as Star Wars, but they did have way too much in the last one. They are making a fourth though :D
