    I can't wait for this arc to end.

    Savage and Maul are probably getting their limbs fixed right now. I would rather watch an entire episode of that than this crap.

    They just have to have Dooku hologram in every arc where is some separatist bad guy. Would've been cooler to see this Okalin (whatever is that droid/cyborg 3-eyed fellow) contacting Rash and telling him that Dooku sent him. No need to have Dooku in every arc- how he even has time to deal with all his minions- he is probably chatting through hologram all the time.....

    Dooku:"I have to stop now Viceroy because I need to berate Grievous for his failure..... and what is this? Wat Tambor captured again!? Damn I really need a secretary....."

    I think the King wants better droids and Dooku will send the gunships. But a droid general with a Killawnee?! His name sounds like the one of the silly felucian farmer of S2.
    And for a droid general not from Onderon, he does appear to have a lot of style like that of Onderon.

    What have happened to Tactical Droids? I didn't like them at first but when I did get used to them they seem to stop using them.....

    Killawnee, Cilanni.... Is "Okalin" then some onderonian rebel?

    Is that guy a droid or a cyborg? Maybe his name is actually his designation or something[face_thinking] ....

    Cannot agree with that[face_hypnotized]

    I think Okalin may be the king's advisor, or whatever he is.

    The droid gunships are new to the show, they're the same kind seen in ROTS on Kashyyyk.

    This may be their first time in use by the CIS since the start of the war.

    I hope that they name the species of Dr. Boll and this advisor now. That 3-eyed droid-fellow is kinda creepy but as usual in TCW he is probably destroyed in the end of this arc. They could have more recurring CIS-generals/admirals than just Grievous. Mar Tuuk's life was saved for later use but he is not used again.

    Is it me or is their a link here:

    - There is a huge burst of energy from the blown up generator that looks exactly the one made from the electro-proton bomb in the Zillo beast episode. And both do something to the droids...

    - there is an alien advisor that is the same species as Dr. Boll - also from the Zillo Beast episodes.

    Coincidence?! I THINK NOT!

    I actually hope the new droid general survives and we'll see him and Grievous fight later for the Surpreme Commander of the Droid Army title.

    Really!? The droid will win and Lucas will do a fatality on Grievous!

    He can't do that, Grievous is in ROTS.

    Zero tension with a human king and droids holding down his throne. I only enjoyed the last scene with Kenobi & Skywalker, then that got deflated by ho hum... more twins. Dooku was boring, repeating all too familiar lines with yet another tool. More Maul, please... this was rather lame.

    On paper the general would win, but only by default.

    Well, that was yawn inducing.

    My response to the end was, and I quote:
    "So?"

    Was I supposed to be surprised by that revelation? Was I supposed to care all of a sudden? Will this have any impact whatsoever? Is there anything they could do with them being siblings that they couldn't do if they weren't? I ask again, SO?

    I like the king though.

    i think i was wrong. Writing is indeed important when it is so damn bad.

    Writing was standard TCW which is not too good. That is the biggest problem in the show.

    Dooku is boring cause they overuse him for the same stupid tasks. IT IS CALLED BAD WRITING.

    The king was the fun part of the episode. All the Jedi lines were stupid.

    This episode was really, really good, and because it continued all the ideas from the last episode, “A War on Two Fronts” feels like a much better episode as well.

    I liked that in the first two minutes and last two minutes they showed us a bunch of smaller attacks, it gives the impression that this really is an ongoing thing.

    All three rebel characters really proved themselves this episode, shocking how kickass and devil may care they are in the way they fight. Last week I wasn’t sure they had the skills that were needed, but boy was I wrong.

    9/10
