I was kinda hoping the blue ARC Trooper would end up being Alpha, but then they killed him pretty quickly, alas. Anyways, overall this was a great episode- the Anakin/Ventress duel was one of the better looking ones we've had so far. I also liked the one shot that was somewhat similar to the one Clone Wars comic, albeit with Ventress and Obi-Wan. [image=http://images.darkhorse.com/covers/12/12199.jpg] Would have liked to have seen Ventress at least get away with the DNA (curious as to what they woulda done there- perhaps a subtle prelude nod to the Separatist Morgukai clone army in the comics?), for them to at least have gotten a partial victory. The initial Republic blockade visual was certainly a "holy crap"-inspiring image, as well.
