I really liked the Vietnam metaphor and the moral debate of over being "advisers" to rebels.

I wonder if this episode plays into the formation of the Rebel Alliance between ROTS and ANH.

I strongly suspect it does. Surely the writers were savvy enough to know that anytime their characters referred to "Rebels", the audience would be predisposed to think "Alliance".

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

Has there been anything said in the show about whether or not the clones know that Palpatine is plotting to kill all the Jedi? Some of the lesser canon sources seem to indicate that they knew or suspected that sooner or later they'd be called upon to off their Generals.

According to an interview with Dave Filoni, Order 66 will be explored at some point during the series.

http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/s..._66_143192.asp

While discussing the four-part General Pong Krell story arc ("Darkness on Umbara", "The General", "Plan of Dissent", and "Carnage of Krell"), Filoni responded to a question about Order 66 by promising that the show would address this mysterious directive. "Order 66 and how it works, why it works, how it all goes down...I don't wanna say too much about that, except that before we're finished with this show, you will understand it a lot better than you do after Revenge of the Sith, because we have the time to get into things like that. ... It has been thoroughly figured out. It's something we've discussed with George."

Regarding the series' depiction of Sidious, Filoni said, "You'll see a little bit more of Sidious, 'cause we start to deal with bigger issues, we start to answer a lot of the kind of bigger questions, and he's kind of forced to take a more active role. Things don't go as smoothly as some people are led to believe for him. It's not like he just wants these things to happen and he calls Order 66 and it works out perfectly for him. He has to actually maneuver and play the chess game to stay ahead of the Jedi." Filoni clarified that this material wouldn't be coming until next season at the earliest, but he said that "maybe at Celebration VI" he'd preview it. "I am going to do my best at Celebration VI to have some ridiculous footage to show," he added.

I am really curious how they will play it. I always imagined the message sent during a dark side ritual in which Palps sacrifices Dooku's dark side adepts.

In Dark Lord, there are some rank-and-file clones who never heard of the order, but the clone commander knows about it.

I find it ironic that seeing as this whole thing was Anakin's idea that the Rebel Alliance may gotten a kick start from Darth Vader.

There is nothing new about this, there were plenty of guerilla movements trought SW history.

Actually, it was according to The Force Unleashed.

To name but one time something like that has occured.

Personally I thought it was more a metaphor for more recent conflicts. Especially with the mention of insurgencies and terrorist acts.

Wouldn't know, I never met any.

But since this is basically a kids' show, I'd be surprised if an animated warlord baddie would be portrayed even as remotely cruel and psychotic as some of the real life scumbags.

Having these violent activites take place in an urban environment is a bit unsettling, it feels more real than the usual Jedi shenanigans. Battle droids helps to mitigate it but it seems a bit darker than chasing General Grievous around some freighter.

Well, if you'll think back, in season four's Slaves of the Republic, Agruss executed prisoners in front of Obi-Wan and Rex, just as a demonstration and lesson not to disobey.
