    Episode 5.8!! Bound For Rescue
    I figured it caught fire and he didn't care :: Part 3 of the Young Jedi arc

    [IMG]

    "When we rescue others, we rescue ourselves."

    The third episode in this four-part story arc finds Ahsoka captured by Hondo’s pirates and the younglings working together to infiltrate the pirates’ den, using their wits and courage to launch a daring rescue. This episode also marks Obi-Wan Kenobi’s reunion with an old adversary, General Grievous

    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.

    Maybe they dressed up to be entertainers and they infiltrate Hondo's base so they can rescue Ahsoka

    Byph reminds me vaguely of a droideka with his.

    I guess those are the circus outfits. Wow... circuses in the GFFA must be pretty awesome. The even feature real weapons.

    I kinda LOLed at it. The idea of a droideka with a flower pot glued to its head gear.

    I feel sorry for Katooni. She's the only one without a lightsabre, and she has one of the worst disguises imaginable. You can clearly see her Tholothian headgear, instantly marking her out to any of the pirates who raided the Jedi ship.

    A Tholothian without a weapon and looking like a fool on a planet filled with speeder bikes and sharp objects...

    From clone gore to circuses, this is at the very least going to be an interesting episode.

    TCW meets Thunder Mountain. This sounds like its going to be a fun ride. Someone reminds me to set my alarm clock on Saturday. lol!

    I think Katooni will be okay. She kinda has a Sailor Moon vibe going on in the clip with her reluctance, clutziness, and tendency to cry when she gets a little overwelmed. I think when the going gets tough she is going to turn out to be the bravest, most determined of the bunch, and come into her own as a leader. If we're going to do a magic girl homage in TCW. I'd like to see the character display the best parts of the trope unlike Ahsoka who reminds me of a magic girl with none of the charms. I mean personality charms, not the little transformation totums.

    I'm really looking forward to this episode! The 2nd preview clip on theforce.net promises a lot of excitement and action to come.

    That clip was perfectly picked. Its easily the most exciting preview this season. Perhaps because the rest of the season since "Revival" has not lived up to my expectations. The last episode was great and alot of fun but it'll be great to see some action and even some good old fashioned violence. I know that's lame but...

    Maybe Cody confronts and tells him to be quiet and throw him :p

    Quiet disappointed that Anakin won't be in these last 2 episodes cause of Ahsoka being captured

    Cody wouldn't waste three seconds with that punk. Thinking of the clones it would be kinda funny and terrible to see Boil backhand him. Its up to Obi-wan, Hondo, and Grievous to learn Petrol something.

    Maybe because she fails. :D



    THIS CLIP.... THIS ARC... nuff said.



    PS: I love how the trivia says that this arc is the only appearance by Grievous. Well, last season there very little Grievous as well and we had him in two of the worst episodes ever and then in MASSACRE (which was genius) to fix the humiliation.

    So far Season Five has made me very happy and I am optimistic for the future of this show. Something I wasn't in S4 by this number of episodes...
