Basically no, you only really missed Ahsoka partnering up with Anakin. The only thing the movie did storywise was give the Republic access to Jabba's smuggling route so they can transport troops and stuff, since the Confederacy blocked the hyperspace lines or something. They really should expand on how important that mission was.
This is not the episode you are looking for...move along.
This pathetic story arc is over.
Padme’s got back, baby.
Hello there: I think this is a rare instance where repeating dialogue actually added to the story, making the Kenobi-Grievous battles more personal.
Fighting: Finally there is a decent amount of fighting in this episode, thought nothing to write home about.
Happenstance: Padme’s arrival here is rather...contrived.
Uneventful: I didn’t like it, but I cant think of much to write here. A dud ending to a dud “trilogy.”
What I want to see next:
Anything but this. 3 Episodes is way to long to give to one plotline...most certainly a bad one. Its also too early in the series to start doing this. It would have been much wiser to do a few one episodes before devoting a month to one story.
Grand Admiral Lucas is more like Grandpa Lucas. The man has gone senile.
Orignally, "Rex" was Alpha from the comics, perhaps one of the coolest, but certainly one of the most developed clones in the SW universe. But, old senile Lucas said...well, if we have Anakin and Artoo, then add in Ahsoka and Alpha...thats too many A-names, so I want Alpha to be Rex.
Yeah, THANKS, nerf-brain. Lets give the new whiny she-padawan a historically significant MALES name, then whine about how there are too many A-names, and change a the name of a character with a rather large fan base who really was significant to the Clone wars arc and the only instance thus far of a comic character making it into the series and give him a dog's name...
Yea...senile. And Detention for Filoni for letting him do it. And, unforgivable in my opnion.
They should just go back to the comics and replace "Alpha" with Rex. It was dumb anyway that Skywalker cant think of anything more original than "Alpha" for Alpha-17. All the other Alpha's were just as likely to be "Alpha"...though it is a sweet name.
