    I know I've harped on this a lot, but this is the second episode title in a row that's made a subtle reference to bondage.

    Just thought I'd point that out.

    Leave it to the Internet to take something with innocent and pure implications and then twist and corrupt it in a perverse way. [face_plain]

    I did do a double take at Hondo's Profit line in A Test of Strength. The other stuff... Just not seeing it, though I probably won't be able to take those scenes seriously anymore. [face_plain]

    Hondo went deep into the galactic cookie jar and now he is going to pay. :D

    Hondo is awesome but Grievous is more awesome!

    One of the few arcs that (so far) uses the 4-parts well. Not a lot of baggage.

    Amen! The only four-parter to be entertaining from start to finish. The last good 4 episode story was Geonosis that managed to do that.

    It's amazing how it takes Dooku four seasons to get his revenge. I think when he was talking to Lux in "A Friend in Need" about the things he wants to remember, being a hostage was #1.

    The one thing i like about this arc is they havnt gone down the road of making it kiddified they have written the younglings very well and not made them sickly and i am loving Ashoka in this i will be sorry to see this end,i hope we see more Hondo in the future(Ihave a soft spot for the old rogue!!). Also is this the only time we get to see Grevious this series ? Sorry i keep on rambling!!! but will Anakin make an appearance in this episode ?

    I think it was more amazing last season or more depressing that Anakin had never really talked to Ahsoka like normal human beings about his past. :p

    PS: A Sith never forgets.

    She tried to talk to him about it when they first met in the Clone Wars movie. He slammed that door shut.

    Knowing Ahsoka, she would not let it go until she got what she wanted like with the Citadel mission.

    I don't think Anakin has mentioned much from his past to anyone other than Padme and Palpatine. I think Obi Wan knows because he saw some of that first hand and Anakin was probably more willing to talk when he was younger.

    Think the only thing Obi-Wan doesn't know is the Tusken Slaughter

    It may have taken 4 seasons to get some continuity with a seemingly goofy episode at that but I'll take it. Just as I was happy to see season 4 slowly start moving on plot strands its great to see some clear linear storytelling.

    Yeah but still. That sounds like a lot of bad character traits, especially if the show is trying to give us an idea how special Ahsoka is for Anakin.
    If she was, he would have told her.

    I don't think Anakin hiding a haunting secret like the Tuskin slaughter would lesson how special Ahsoka is to him. He's clearly possessive over her as seen in eps like the Padawan Lost duo. When Ahsoka gets back in "Wookie Hunt" Anakin can barely contain himself.

    He totally did. He gave her a big ol' clingy hug right in front of everybody.

    I think he cares about Ahsoka just as much as Padme, Obi-Wan, and Palpatine, but the first and third of that group being Jedi, and Anakin doesn't trust the Jedi obviously, but this is really stressed (at least to me) in his scenes with Padme in AOTC and ROTS (and also the ROTS novel I just started in regards to Obi-Wan). He loves them like family but in the very back of his mind believes he cannot trust them.

    I've always viewed it as Anakin sees Ahsoka more as a daughter than a padawan. And Obi Wan as a father/teacher, but the lectures and scolding made Anakin resent and distrust him a little.

    Anyways, back to ANB. I can't wait to see Grievous trash Florrum. :D
