    The explosive conclusion!

    "Disobedience is a demand for change"


    As a full-scale revolt embroils Onderon, the rebels strike a decisive blow against the planet's Separatist-aligned king. Unfortunately for the rebels, such victory comes at a high price.

    The TCW General Discussion Thread (spoilers) will be open to any "official" information discussion, other than the leaked plot info for S5, and any preview/episode clips for the individual episodes (i.e., things like IGN where they give us a 2:00 minute part of the show, often spoiling key scenes).
    http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...-discussion-thread-spoilers-allowed.20757653/

    The S5 discussion thread (Spoilers!) will continue to be the main heavy spoiler thread, including discussion of the video clips for each week's episode. Plot spoilers will continue to be limited to this thread and must still be "spoiler tagged" or black highlighted.

    My niece would love this episode's fortune cookie. I can just picture it now when she is on the Toys R Us floor throwing a tantrum for a new Bratz doll.

    This episode looks great I will be happy to see Hondo in a episode again. So how do you all think this episode will be?

    The episode guide strongly hints that Saw might die, though I’m thinking Steela is likely to be the one that is killed.
    I think this episode will be what decides how this quadrilogy is looked upon in the future. The episode itself will probably be amazing, but it will be interesting to see if it justifies a three episode lead in. Looking forward to the seps new battleships, they look amazing.

    You think?

    I think saw will die because he is "the batman" of this arc. The Hero. Steela will be propably queen and offer Lux to be the new senator. But i think Bonteri will refuse and run away with the Togruta. Like the ending of "The Graduate" Movie. :)

    I can not wait for this week's episode but my issue is that TCW spent so much time on stupid stuff and the crew has crammed all the epic stuff in this one episode.

    I hope it is not rushed!

    its 100% rushed. you can be sure about that.

    is it even logical that Hondo in the middle of his own destroyed empire, throwing everything aside and run to save Ahsoka? i dont buy that. The writing of this arc is awefull. Without the great animation this episodes would be totaly dull.

    I guess it'll depend on what you mean by rushed.

    I'm sure if the republic pays Hondo a lot of credits he will go and run to save Ahsoka.

    Steela's going to die. Nothing gets between Ahsoka and her slave.

    Steela tragically dies, Saw learns some life lesson

    Or vice-versa.

    Maybe Lux will die causing turmoil in Ahsoka's mind...

    Yeah since i'm pretty sure that Hondo would not get involved in that fight unless it was for the money.

    i dont get why Ahsoka is asking him in the preview, if they was paid for or not. If somebody delivers me weapons in a hot combatzone and saves my ass, than i would say "Hell yeah gimme your blackmarket weapons now!!!"

    Who do you guys think will come with Hondo? the Weequay Pirates or the 501st? ( like only Fives, Rex, Jesse, etc... ) or will Hondo come by himself

    I imagine that the Weequay pirates will go with him.

    I want to know what they'd pay him with. I get the impression both from him, Episode 1, and in general, that republic credits are the most worthless currency in the galaxy.

    That is sick and perverted stuff, sir and I shall not stand for it!

    If you swapped Lux out with Barriss on the other hand...

    Agreed.

    For a minute there, I thought Ric Olie had been her master at some point...
    Dumbest line of the season, so far... and it hasn't even aired yet.
