I'm thinking maybe they slipped on his model during the making of the episode. I'm sure someone on staff went 'Hey, wait... that's a clone pistol... shit, too late,' because Grievous used his own weapon in earlier episodes with his blaster.
Frankly, I was kind of hoping for the former Padawan Jedi (who's name keeps escaping me - Nahdar?) to not get killed, but to turn to the Dark Side. That's a plotline I'd like to see them explore, since in the movies you only see Anakin fall to the Dark Side (which is sort of a special case), and I think the books and comics handle it horribly (revolving Force door anyone? Yeah, no.). So I'd be curious as to how this series handles that sort of thing.
After watching the episode thrice, I tried to check this. I dont think there were any clone bodies in that area of the lair.
Meh, death is easier than turning. It would be nice to see a jedi corupted by the war to the darkside. It would also be nice to see Jedi who leave the order because of the war. I think these are concepts for season II though.
Grievous getting ambushed, his legs getting cut off, and then moving around like a spider... beatifully done, and quite creepy I might add
... and so were the saber battles, the camera work, the setting... I loved they included the Kaleesh statues, I never thought I'd see that in the series.
The trap door came out of nowhere, totally surprised me. Nadhar using the force to crush the magna guards, reminded me of The Force Unleashed....
And I absolutely loved the doctor (whichever number it was). Here there was a droid that actually reprimended Grievous, and Grievous didn't talk back or threaten to kill him, but actually gave escuses for his behavior.... I kept expecting Grievous to say or do something for the way the droid talked to him, but he never did, It actually made me laugh the way the doctor talked.... and besides, it didn't had an annoying voice....
and Fisto was a bad ass too... though I didn't like that he took the death of Nadhar to lightly...

"Order" doesn't necessarily mean "I order you to...", an "order" is also a type of legislation, of which there were many. Clone Commanders would know them just like any military commander knows the rules of his military. Clones "take order without question." They're not some sort of sleeper assassin army. "Order 66" the event was simply the mass-applicaiton of this contingency order. It was issued much earlier as part of GAR protocol.
Order 66 was used successfully many times in the war for Jedi like Vos or Bulq who couldn't stomach concepts like loyalty or honor and posed a risk to the Republic. The Jedi were too flaky to be trusted. Dooku was a Jedi and he started this whole war. 66 also requires lethal force. If the Jedi find out that you're onto them, even a whole bunch of you aren't going to be able to take them. I've seen them in battle: they're gods. I've seen them decimate armies and I'm not going to unleash that sort of damage on my own side because of sloppy execution or regulation. If GAR command, if the chancellor himself has actionable intelligence, why would I question that? I have a job to do and if there is a human traitor that's the equivalent of a WMD in my midst...there is no time. Point. Shoot. Kill.
