That's also one of the few times they actually hit something.

^ Maybe they're super-precise but Vader ordered them to "make it look good" so they'd escape and give away the rebel base?

Excellent episode. It was worth it alone for the lighting and animation of the Republic prison. Story was good and the emotional-charged scene between Ahsoka and Anakin was terrific.

I liked the homage to The Fugitive movie in that final scene. There were a lot of cool visuals in the those chase scenes.

Who was the female Jedi Ahsoka was talking to? She looked familiar but I couldn't place her. Is she the bad Jedi who set Ahsoka up? I know she was sad about that Jedi but she seemed suspicious to me. Or is she too obvious of a suspect?

I had to look her up myself. She's Barriss Offee, who's been a recurring character in the show, mainly in a story arc in season 2 where she and Ahsoka got to know each other. She's apparently still around up until Order 66 is enacted, so I doubt she'll turn out to be a bad guy here.

So... going by "The Fugitive" plot, Ashoka is looking for a one-armed Jed... oh my god, ANAKIN!

I don't recall any other time that stun was used in the six films.
Think its the only time stun has ever been used in the films.

Actually this arc is based more on Hitchcock. All the episode titles are plays on Hitchcock film titles. And the lighting in this episode was a lot more noir than anything in The Fugitive (the film, anyway).

CSI: Miami isn't Hitchcock, yet Russo-ISC was based off of Horatio Caine, as already mentioned upthread. The titles are obviously Hitchcock allusions, but there was a clear Fugitive reference too, jumping out of the drainpipe to go on the run.

I'm not seeing any obvious overall parallel in this episode with The Man Who Knew Too Much, beyond the title; where was the famous cymbal clash to cover an assassination?

It's a hybrid.

I just didn't want anyone to get the impression that The Fugitive was the sole or primary reference for the arc. Obviously they are mixing elements from various crime and thriller franchises, but of course Hitchcock is the granddaddy of thrillers.

Barriss Offee was Luminara Unduli's Padawan and both were featured in the micro-series quite a bit I believe. I'm also pretty sure both were in "Attack of the Clones".

^ Those were excellent episodes of the micro-series, by the way, the ones on Ilum. Here they are: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Clone_Wars_Chapter_14.

Agreed. I believe the first time we see how a Jedi builds their lightsaber?
