    It's clear from the preview that Ahsoka is being left in an "advisor" capacity and is expected only to "monitor" the rebels. She's not suppose to get actively involved in their rebellion. However, she won't be able to maintain her neutral role once imminent danger is upon Lux; and this will only strengthen her attachment to Lux leading to Ahsoka's eventual turn to the Dark Side of the Force.

    The Gunships didn't make an appearance yet and no, it's a different Droid General, the weird looking one with 3 eyes i think

    simple, he was in the beginning of the episode, then he leaves for Coruscant and then appears in
    a hologram at the end, that's how

    I believe the droids, Hondo, and the Grievous Temp. Replacement make an appearance in The Soft War.

    They probably wanted to show a competent original separatist villain.

    im looking forward to this episode after last week's rather slow paced half hour. the season premiere was epic and had me on the edge of my (couch). I understand last week was really a setup and introduction to the current arc, but if I wait a darned week for a show I want more.and I know I shouldn't. cant wait to return to the Maul story lines, hopefully he kills Savage and does something-anything- with Dooku

    That’s my feeling as well, everything else feels a little bland in comparison. I can’t help but feel that the Maul story is the real meat of this season, and everything else is all the noisy stuff one has to wrestle through to get to it. I have hopes for the other arcs as well, but "The Shadow Conspiracy" arc looks so awesome in comparison to everything else.

    That would help explain why Ahsoka is interested in him, especially since she gets along so well with Barriss, Riyo, and Padme...[face_thinking]

    Mar Tuuk?

    The king has a great voice actor, who is it?

    I can't get over Ahsoka's freaking robes. Why are they so pointy? Her montrels aren't that big.

    I love that all these people walking around are no copies of each other (that I can see)

    How did only one rebel die from all those droids?

    Commando droids are now officially harmless if hardly trained rebels can take a whole squad of them.

    "Sniper, get her!" How did they know it was a female sniper??

    "The power must have gone out!" NO. EVERYTHING IS DARK BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS NORMAL.

    "Get over here, you handsome senator.."

    Anakin talking to Ahsoka is good, but in front of everyone, including that boy they're talking about?

    Good episode! Not much romance in this episode, except at the very end scene, defiantly more action. Better than last weeks.
