Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I don't understand why Asoka completely hid Bariss' during either hearing. Here she is on trial for her very life, in addition to her standing in the Jedi Order, and she doesn't mention anything about Bariss? This information could potentially aid her defense at the very least and explain why she was in the location of the nano-explosives.

Probably because Asokha trusted Bariss and not thinking she was the traitor didn't want to drag her into things.

After all what if Bariss has innocent and expelled from the order as well? Asokha wouldn't want that.

EDIT: oops Marc snuck up on me ^ should go two up

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

From her look of shock and betrayal when Anakin revealed that it was Bariss...yeah I'd say that she didn't know that she was involved with the frame, therefore she had no information that would be helpful for her defence.

Even if I thought she was innocent, I would have still used her in my defense.

COURT: "Asoka, why were you in the room with the nano-explosives?"
ASOKA: "I was following a lead provided to me by Barriss Offee. She had uncovered a rumor that the explosives were being housed at that location. Barriss can verify this. I'm innocent!"

If Asoaka thought Barriss was innocent, that would have motivated her even more to reveal this information.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

The fact that a 30 minute animated episode is full of plot holes is to be expected. I still liked it for what it was.

I don't think that's entirely fair, considering that there are entire 2-hour live-action movies (including most of the ones directed by George Lucas) that have even more massive plot holes.

True, that.

Or, is it a 120 minute story in 4 parts?

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Even the quote provided suggests that Ahsoka had no reason to suspect Bariss, she was her friend, and a fellow member of the Jedi Order. As I mentioned as well...the dark side clouds judgement and reason, making it difficult to find the truth of things. She even says that Offee can verify the information, which she of course did when Anakin brought her before the court, just not in the way Ahsoka anticipated

20 minutes. Or is it 22? Well, somewhere around that.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Wow, Clone Wars is gone. I tuned in to maybe catch a rerun and they're showing one of those Lego spoofs instead; And not even a Star Wars one at that.

The rest of the morning lineup looks exactly the same, so now I'm left wondering if it's more bitter grapes on the part of Cartoon Network or some guy from Disney showed up five minutes after the finale and said; "Okay, pack it all up. And don't forget the Lego spoofs."

They've done this before (switch The Clone Wars out with another show for awhile) when they reached the end of a season.

Reruns may return during the summer.

If Disney does have Clone Wars now (has that been confirmed?) CN may have little interest in continuing to show it.

That's right. There's nothing unusual these days about a cable channel putting something different in a show's time slot as soon as the season ends. In fact, it's a pretty common practice. So there's no reason to think there's any special significance to it here.

Fair enough. Now I can focus on the myriad of other signs poking me in the gut, saying that TCN and TCW have seen the last of each other.
