    The Onderon arc would have worked fine as a 4 parter with more stuff going on, more dabbling into the politics, more complexity, and more compelling characters. IMO the problem with that this was 4 episodes.

    Did anyone notice Obi-Wan said "our padawan" at the end there on Ondaron? Sure, it could mean and probably was a general "our" but it perked up my ears - eh, what, Kenobi?

    Wasn't my favorite arc, yet it was not that dark and gritty like the Umbaran arc was.

    Thats a sidehit on Anakin. Plo did that too. All the Jedi in the temple are jelous of Anakin and how he managed to rise so fast inside of the order.

    Kenobi definatly does not respect Anakin as a Jedi. He still looking at him as a reckless guy which needs to be watched.

    Skywalker is noticing that but keeping quiet because he thinks kenobi just want his best.

    The main weapons of those gunships was their explosive energy rockets/projectiles. The blasters/canons around the nose are just for near distance self defence like CWIS on USNavy Battleships. They cant fire their main weapons into near placed enemies, because the explosion would destroy themselfs too.

    That face will not be available until the final season of TCW in which Anakin will choke Ahsoka to death because Obi-Wan is trying to take her away from him.

    Cyborg Ahsoka might frighten viewers. Besides, it was quite a significant shot, went right through her upper arm.

    Wut. I think it's clear Kenobi respects Skywalker's abilities as a Jedi. There's never any indication, even in AOTC that that was true.

    He knows his friend well and if he sent Anakin to Onderon alone, he probably figures Anakin would be king. :p

    Regarding Kenobi & Slave I, it looked like the shot hit near him, but even that was enough to knock him off his feet.

    Not equivalent to a direct hit in the shoulder.

    It was pretty much right between his legs. The screen shot is a few frames after the initial hit - because Obi was completely engulfed in the explosion.

    Anakin will be married to the senator from Naboo and Ahsoka will be dating the senator of Onderon. Scandalous.

    No, but really I don't want to see Ahsoka backslide or see her mirror Anakin in that way. Sure, they could have that irony of Anakin finding out and criticizing her despite doing the exact same thing. But when they seemingly showed Ahsoka getting over her feelings for Lux (which was just abrupt IMO btw), I hope they keep it that way. And if Lux is going to enter the political sphere, then maybe he can finally be the one to step in, recognize the Republic as being corrupt (what he has learned from Mina and Dendup) and become a political opponent to Palpatine. Not wild about Lux being said political opponent, but IMO Palpatine sorely needs one, and it seems like Lux just got nominated for the job.

    No. Anakin is more an opponent than a friend to Obi Wan. And the issue is Anakins struggle inside. Obi Wan desperatly tries to make him stay obedient to the Jedi Code, But ani on the other side is not wiling to give up his own mind and aggression. He just accepts Obi Wans good speaches and the positive praising, but other than that he gives a Rats azz to Obi Wans teachings and warnings.

    In the Mortis trylogy Obi Wan nearly cried out to Qui Gon because of Ani. He sounded totaly tired and annoyed about Anakin.

    He sounded more concerned about Anakin than annoyed with him. Prior to Anakin's fall, Obi Wan and Anakin were practically brothers.

    and Anakin considered Obi-Wan to be a father like figure to him as well
