    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).

    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.

    So is Slave I legitally returning? Hope we get some reference back to Season 2 about Aurra crashing the ship and a maybe a flash back of Hondo helping her out of it.

    I don't see why a flash back is needed. Obviously Hondo took it and repaired it.

    If showing a flashback of Ahsoka as a baby is important, I'm guessing this would be as well.

    At least this arc doesn't feel like it's been dragging as much as Onderon and Umbara. One more episode feels about right.

    And.. eh, I like Hondo, but I wouldn't mind them giving him a rest for, like, the remainder of the season.

    I agree that Hondo should not be over-used. He's one of the best characters TCW has created, but using him too much risks making a caricature of him.
    Regardless, the previews look great and I'm really looking forward to the finale. Keep Christian Taylor on the payroll!

    The wookiee says "No!" in the trailer! How cool is that! :D

    Sadly, it sounds as though Kartooni still hasn't blown her nose.

    seriously the twists ans turns of being ally and enemy with Hondo are getting cliche now, the only thing tat really saves it are his one-liners.

    I agree with all of you. I CAN NOT WAIT!!![face_party]

    Didn't she just say he pulled her out of the rubble. That feels not enough for a story.


    It is totally not dragging. Umbara and Onderon did drag, with Umbara being the worse one of the two BUT THIS ARC... I love Young Jedi.
    The pace is perfect and every episode feels different and unique. Feels so much like Season One. That is why I love it...

    Come on, Grievous. All that's standing between you and victory is a group of kids and some drunk pirates. You can do it!!

    We usually don't see Grievous pulling out a 3rd blue saber. I guess too many green sabers would just look worse or something :p ?
    But now there's an equal number of blue and green to be flashed all over the place.

    I'm just so used to the blue/green alternation

    Oh god, it's even worse than I thought. not only are their children, but Obi Wan is going to be saved from Grievous.... by Ahsoka.

    He probably returned to the Temple or a nearby fleet in the escape pod.

    Does anyone know how the kids get back to Coruscant, if their ship never makes it off Florrum?
