    In order to keep from wanting to beat your head against a wall.

    Which is what I'll want to do if "everything goes back to normal."

    I'm usually in the optimist camp, but on this I'm afraid that if I answered honestly I'd have to say they will more likely have a squeaky clean wrap-up to this arc. I really don't want that to happen, and I didn't think that was the direction we were headed in last week, but after yesterday's episode I feel like they're more clearly setting up Barriss to take the fall, which will mean defaulting back to the status quo afterwards.

    I'm still holding out hope that maybe Anakin kills Ventress and the Jedi Council finds out and reassigns Ahsoka to a different Jedi Master because of that. But something like that no longer feels as likely as it did following the previous week's episode.

    This last episode really killed a lot of the tension this arc had going, imo.

    I mostly agree. I thought there was a fair amount of tension during the episode itself, but by its end, a decent chunk of the tension the entire arc had going was killed off. Barriss randomly having this information no one else could get seemed inexplicable, but then when the person who knocks out Ventress and steals her mask shows up in Barriss' outfit with Barriss' body to attack Ahsoka, it seems to explain how Barriss had that extra information - and give away much of the plot to boot. At this point I would actually consider it a significant twist if it wasn't Barriss. I think there's still plenty of tension regarding the outcome of all this because I haven't 100% lost trust in Filoni saying over and over again that the ending of this arc will have real consequences going forward, but at minimum they seem to be killing the tension regarding who is behind the scheme itself.

    Changed my mind, I want everything to go back to normal. I want Ahsoka to be Anakin's padawan, I want Wolffe to be a competent commander, and I want Barriss to be a Jedi healer who spends a large chunk of time meditating on the nature of the Force.

    Just... put it back, Filoni.

    I think it's too late to go back now, but then again, this is Star Wars, and Darth Maul is now alive!

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: If the events of this arc get Tamzarianed, it will be the most disappointing ending to a Star Wars entity since "Noooooooooooo!"

    Too late for that. Most of the tension on who has been killed, but there remains a fair amount of tension on why. Frankly this was the bigger point anyway ever since a jedi was revealed to be behind it, so I can't say that I'm too put out...yet. If they screw up the why though, yeah this'll suck :)

    I don't like this setup with Barriss at all, but oh well. I'm much more interested in this arc hopefully changing the status quo.

    As the pessimists here suggest, if that doesn't happen, I will be horribly disappointed, perhaps even bitter. Moreso with the notion that if we return to the status quo, Disney may not even air season 6, and the show simply ends here with both Maul and Ashoka running amok with no resolution. It'd be worse than Force Unleashed II's ending and existence.

    I don't hate Ashoka, I just want her story to have enough closure to mean something for the larger saga. Something major needs to resolve her story before EP III. Her leaving the order at least gives us an opportunity even if the show 'is' canceled.
