This highly anticipated episode for fans of Star Wars the Clone Wars was a total shocker and plot twister of an episode. I was terrified to see it.
AND I HAD PERFECTLY GOOD REASON TO BE!!!!!!!!!
I cried.....I screamed a LOT....I cursed a little.....and majorly I freaked out more than I probably should have.
Lux Bontari returns in this episode, after a very controversial appearance in Season Three of TCW. He and Ahsoka have been paired together by some fans, much to the displeasure of anti-AhsokaRomance and Rexoka fangirls.....but he was only in two episodes. Which was why we were all EXTREMELY worried to see these episodes!!!!
Okay, I will first point out the good things. It started out quite interesting. We saw mini-cameos of some favorite characters, including Padme Amidala, Bail Organa (*scream!!!!!*), Mon Mothma, and Duchess Satine Kryze (*SCREAM*). At first it was simply political, and their were some mean politicians (pfftttttssshhhh....no comment....) but then LUX BONTARI shows up, and Ahsoka gets all antsy. She tells Padme that she didn't know that Lux was invited, to which Padme replied that she didn't either.
After getting himself into trouble for speaking out against Count Dooku and wanting to avenge his mother's death, Lux gets taken away by some droids, and AHSOKA CHASES AFTER HIM.
I honestly honestly honestly HATE HATE HATE HATE LUX LUX LUX LUXXXXXX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (yay for repetition for emphasis!)
|a poorly edited picture of him to show my hate....|
Okay, fangirliness aside....I did enjoy the stuff with Death Watch, the animation was AMAZING, and the action was EPIC. Ahsoka's battle with Pre Vizsla (YAY FOR VIZSLA!!!!! WE ARE PRO-VIZSLA ON FOF!!!), was AMAZING, as was her mini battle with Bo Katan. (Bo Katan is epic! I hope we see more of her!!!)
Lux is a wishy-washy loser in my opinion, I really hate him. The fact that he and Ahsoka KISSED REAAAAAAAAAAALLLYYY made me mad. I was CRYING I was so mad!!!!! Crying....screaming....doing a Luke "NOOOOOOOOO!!!!"......
Let's just say it wasn't pretty.....Look at my show notes...they're messed up.
Okay.....calming down....I really enjoyed the Mando action in this episode....it was awesome!!!! And Ahsoka really can kick butt with her lightsabers!!!
Over all, I'd give this episode a 6/10....it'd be more if Lux and Ahsoka didn't kiss.....and by the way, the ending where their fingers touched on the glass made me want to puke. I am utterly distraught.
Thanks for reading this crazy, fangirl emotionally whacked post! What were your thoughts on this episode?
