    I didn't know "counterattack" was just one word, with no hyphen.

    You know what would be a great name for an episode? "Counterattack on Rattatak". That's pure win right there.


    PS: Isn't that fortune cookie missing a comma or something?

    So I take it Ahsoka will be leading Tarkin. [face_tired]

    Well, can't really assume much from the description atm.

    You know, I almost put a comma in there before reposting it.

    I did fix a spelling mistake in the summary, however. :p

    Sadly Ventress is no longer from that planet or part of its native specie. :(

    Ah, yes, "perils and pitfalls in s tore"

    S Tore... is that a planet?

    I just hope there's a comma in the fortune cookie in the actual episode...

    Anything that can go wrong wil...huff.



    For some reason I don't take this current thread of conversation as a sign of something that will eventually develop into the 40+ page-long metaphysical argument we were having in the Mortis arc...

    Here's hoping Ahsoka's Mary Sue luck runs out and she's killed on the mission she was ordered to stay behind.

    Hopefully this episode continues the pure fun of The Citadel.

    Well, yeah, that's probably going to happen. Then her appearance as a Force ghost in the finale will have fandom in an uproar yet again.

    What should have fandom in an uproar is that starwars.com homepage is now the shop.starwars.com homepage (as of now) Lucas isn't even trying to pretend anymore. he's all about the money. [face_whistling]

    Does anyone care about Fives? He's had very little characterization since "Rookies" and even then it wasn't much.

    At this point, I would say he has no personality whatsoever.

    That's fine with me, though.

    WHERE IS THE PROPER WEBSITE? LUCAS YOU GOT THE MONTH WRONG ITS 1ST MARCH TODAY :_|

    Back on track, maybe Ahsoka does get captured? Sure looks like it in the CN preview. That's why there's a part 3, to rescue everyone else captured in this part.

    Or maybe she stays and then gets handed over to the Trandos for the finale?

    "Working past their differences" sounds good to me- Ahsoka-Tarkin pairing is promising IMO- would be nice to see Tarkin having some kind of insular attitude towards young,female,non-human- last time speciesism was handled was Trespass and it was nice episode- however Tarkin cannot be "redeemed" off his attitudes so we can have him to imperial b@stard later on... so Ahsoka may mess up badly:p

    Anyway i said before we need some character who won't get along well with Soka and i would imagine Wilhuff is not automatically her new best friend- so Ahsoka was needed in this arc- it would've been missed opportunity if Ahsoka wouldn't have been seen with Tarkin- that's so odd combination it just has to be done:p

    "Anything that can go wrong will" [face_laugh] is it Murphy's law as fortune cookie or what- priceless- what next?

    The only problem I see with this episode is that I know I'll have to hear the Forcecast guys do their Brian Kalin O'Connell routine again. o_O

    Heh... I thought it was just my imagination that Fives was given less characterization than most of the other Domino Squad members. He basically just followed Echo around, and at least Echo had more of a memorable personality since he was always repeating orders and annoying everyone. Fives was just... there. Adding 1-liners in occasionally.

    Fives was apparently the crackshot of Domino Squad, being the only guy with the extended rifle. I guess you could say he was a somewhat aggressive character eager to get into the fight, but unfortunately, Hevy filled that niche for awhile. :p

    Well you just convinced me that they should kill of Echo not Fiveso_O - or maybe both... or even more surprising Rex himself.... or master Piell.... and no Ahsoka of course... who would really like to see her killed anyway....

    I would like it if both Echo and Fives were killed. As much as I like Echo, Fives is just pointless. I hardly remember any sort of characterization from him in Rookies, since he was following others mostly. The only time we've seen Fives do anything that you could make him stand out is when he wanted to called "Fives" in Clone Cadets. Ever since these two clones "became ARC troopers," my interest in them fell flat. They should have never had become ARC troopers, since a clone isn't promoted to one, and their lives seem rushed. After every other episode in the Clone Cadet arc, they were praised and "promoted either further up the clone trooper scale."
