The main thing that annoyed me was a perennial problem with the show -- introducing all these new Jedi and other characters and not naming them for a long time. Like introducing that female Jedi who went on the rescue and not mentioning her name until more than 2/3 of the way through.
Yeah, I thought it was odd Gallia didn't get called by her name until late in the episode but that's par for the course in SW. Leia is never referred to by her last name in the original trilogy, Palpatine is never referred to as anything other than The Emperor in the original trilogy, Boba Fett is not referred to by name in ESB and Bail Organa is never referred to by his first name in the prequels.

The farmer's wife being a scantily clad Twi'lek was a bit gratuitous, though very nice to look at.
I suppose they could justify that with shirtless Rex.

I pretty sure those were The Deserter's step-children. Remember how the point was made in this episode about choosing your own family.
