    Just for nostalgic purposes I decided to re-watch the Mortis arc again :)

    I think the arc made more sense with Bane and Revan, like in those deleted scenes.

    Well I have a feeling that will be handy when rebels returns.

    So I just rewatched the final Maul/Savage arc of TCW (Season 5). It's such a great arc to begin with; and then you get to the Lawless episode. For the first time I really wanted to watch that episode with an objective view. I want to see how ANYONE could've voted for that episode to be anything but perfect. Just didn't work. The feels of that episode from beginning to end are incredible. You get Satine's death by Maul;

    then about 10 seconds later you're taken to the Senate building on Coruscant where Chancellor Palpatine has just ordered his ship to be ready....and the rest is history.

    Watched the fugitive arc of Season 5 once again. The orchestral music is just so top notch; really affecting the mood of the episodes. I just wish there was some explanation as to how Barriss sneaked into the Republic's prison ward just as Ahsoka was in Letta's cell. She had to have been there; otherwise could it have been an example of Force Projection?

    If
    Luke died from the effort
    I cannot see her doing it.

    Jedi and Sith seem to be able to hide their presence using the force. Whether it's a straight up invisibility ability or just a way to improve their stealth is ambiguous. Barris used it to remain hidden in the prison and Dooku used it to sneak right up to Obi Wan and Anakin when they were interrogating Silman on Oba Diah. Luke probably also used this when he was hiding from Vader in the Emperor's Throne Room, and Vader probably used it to launch a sneak attack on Luke during the latter half of their duel on Bespin after Vader stopped messing around.

    0:15 always got me to jump as a kid.

    It is possible that they can mask their presence in the force. This could be what Obi Wan was doing on Tatooine.

    So that really doesn't help to explain how Barriss managed to get so close to Letta's cell to Force choke her without anyone knowing she was there; let alone kill all of the guards on her way out. That one crucial part of the story always bugs me.

    I always assumed it was more Lucas than Filoni, since Filoni wanted it about Ahsoka on what is essentially the Ghost with Plo Koon.
    George made her Anakin’s apprentice. A great move and the best move George did to give Ahsoka interest and longevity.

    I’m guessing George also realised that the psycho we got in the PT is not sympathetic at all and basically re-wrote character.
    This was the Anakin we should’ve got in the PT in Jmo.

    Recently started watching CW. Currently on S3. In some aspects I like it even more than Rebels, due to less filler episodes.

    However, is it just me or I feel I am missing quite a lot of chunks between episodes? When the narrator starts talking and they show a re-cap, they usually show footage that wasn't shown in the previous episode - and I am pretty sure I am not missing anything. I feel like there are entire missing chunks of story between episodes that are briefly shown, but never really gotten a whole episode for it.

    That’s because TcW was an anthology show.

    What if TCW-Anakin was the only Anakin? Like, if the show hadn't been cancelled, could a person skip the PT entirely?

    Maybe its bcs I've been watching TCW all week, but...what if the PT was re-cut in the style of TCW?!

    I really don't have time to arrange it and constantly view if I am on the right episode.

    What happens if I keep watching it scrambled?

    Nothing. You might be a bit confused, but you will still see all the episodes.

    Also when you finish season 6 be sure to watch the legacy content on Starwars.com

    Thanks! What are those reels about? Will I miss important info if I don't watch them?

    I am asking because I am limited on time, but also want to watch other films/shows as well.

    One is about Clone Commandos and Rex
    The other is about Obi-Wan and Anakin finding a giant Kyber crystal that the CIS wants.
    They are in rough animation form so not finished.

    No, not animated. I mean, reimagine Attack of the Clones not as a film, but as six episodes of TCW. Or Revenge of the Sith as six episodes of TCW.
    What if you saw the title card for TCW followed by the battle of Coruscant for 22-ish minutes. The Invisible Hand crashes, Obi-Wan says, "Another happy landing," and cut to the end credits!
    Or title card, and the next 20+ minutes. Palpatine: "Not from a Jedi." End credits.
    Another 20+ minutes, and Obi-Wan: "So uncivilized." End credits.
    "So this is how liberty dies: with thunderous applause." End credits.
    It was just a thought experiment.

    He didn't re-write any character. It's the same character. The movies are focused on the more dramatic events and in his growth, where obviously he doesn't behave like he should (hence the tragedy of his story). The Anakin you see in TCW is no different from the Anakin you see at the beginning of ROTS, or when he banters with Obi-Wan in AOTC.
