    I don't much pay attention to the thumbnails but I assume important characters will get them. Although he will have a cool voice the lightsaber builder droid will likely be a pretty minor character.

    The droid was cool, basically the first scene is a homage to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

    Hondo was awesome as usual and smart,

    Petro continues to be arrogant

    The Droid Hungay ( i think ), kills a Weequay pirate without his head and arms [face_laugh]

    And the big one and obvious one is Ahsoka getting captured

    Not directly, they used those training droid things, the ones that Luke trained with in ANH

    Petro's lightsaber exploded, not sure if it killed the Pirate that held or not

    Did Ahsoka mention Onderon to Hondo?

    No. Obi-wan knows from Revival that Hondo has the weapons Maul and Savage stole, I think.

    Really? What makes you say that?

    Did you even watch the episode?

    Man, not only was last episode good, this whole arc is showing to be one of the best. Ahsoka Captured by Hondo and his pirate gang? I never saw that coming.

    Better than The Gathering, but the best one of this arc is yet to come.

    She mentioned something about their last meeting. I am pretty sure these were after Onderon. Tipping Points is 4.18 and The Gathering was 4.22.

    She meant their meeting in Lethal Trackdown, this arc is before Onderon.

    I thought with the exception of Revival, everything was airing in chronological order. Something supported by the fact that Young Jedi has a later production number than Onderon. There does appear to be an arc that goes between YJ and Onderon since the production number skips 3 episodes between the two. (Clovis?)

    Excellent episode. A really strong follow-up to The Gathering and I thought the younglings got a chance to stand out even more as characters. Loved David Tenant as the droid professor in a moment clearly inspired by Ollivander in Harry Potter. Hondo's always entertaining although you see he is a true pirate here.

    Another great episode! I already knew Ahsoka got captured but I still gasped when the pirate flew at her into the tunnel! :p I look forward to the next two episodes! Also I would like to say this, because people keep on getting confused. THIS IS SET AFTER TIPPING POINTS AND BEFORE REVIVAL. :p Excuse the capslock but it had to be done. :D
