Is Barriss Offee good for Force-choking Letta Turmond, though? If she is, damn!

So... maybe the nanodroids are 'controlling' Barriss?

I think Barriss is the obvious (and only) choice as well. I hope there's not a reset button at the end. Lets have some real drama.

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

I rewatched and I've been thinking this over. There's something absolute about Ahsoka banished/left for dead without revealing Barriss' interference to the rest of the Jedi. Ahsoka may even never figure out whodunnit. Maybe Maul is manipulating Barriss? I can't figure out the motivation but Barriss' character may end not being revealed as the traitor (or the manipulator). But whoever attacked Ahsoka has serious skills.

I've not been watching consistently so bear with me with this...is Ventress still around? Could she be in play regarding the arc?

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

I actually didn't guess that was Ventress at all I thought it was just a random bounty hunter character. I didn't see a promo with her in it so I wasn't thinking of her.

I found the hand to hand fight a little ridiculous, personally. Too many instances of a Clone Trooper aiming a gun right at them and not firing, just watching while they take out his compatriots. Why not just set the gun to stun and fire into the crowd? Because the plot didn't dictate that yet? They were using stun last episode.

I was also disappointed they set up Plo Koon looking for Ashoka, but they never had a "Fugitive" scene together.

They already did the Fugitive thing with Anakin last week. It would've been kind of repetitive.

I usually miss those things but the sabers gave it away for me this time.

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

Another great episode. This is a real good arc for Ashoka and the team up with Ventress was great. If she winds up a bounty hunter or dead, perhaps at Anakin's hand, next week, I am okay with that. I would prefer more of a conclusion to her story than the open-ended send off in the comics (which I'm assuming was done to keep her viable for future stories). Though if she does escape death, I wouldn't mind if she survived all of the Clone Wars either. Ventress could be a good villain for the new films. Though I have to wonder if Maul might not be resurrected for the new films, courtesy of the Clone Wars. He too would make a good villain.

I liked the Anakin-Windu exchange, though I wish Anakin had displayed more pique. I also liked how Obi Wan came to Anakin's defense.

I would rather the assailant not be Offee, though she does seem the obvious choice. I like the character and would rather see the CW writers doing a big fake out instead of going with the obvious. For a moment there I thought it might be Maul who attacked Ventress until I got a better look.

I think Maul would be hard to explain to those who have only seen the films while Ventress would be a blank slate to those without a history of her.

Really enjoyed the episode. The Ventress/Ashoka team up was fun, and once again we got some beautiful animation. I liked the hand-to-hand fight. I do agree that Barriss Offee does see to be the most likely suspect at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if they threw some kind of a twist in there at the end.

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

I doubt they'd kill off Ahsoka while the show's still in production. After all, she's the only lead character whose future isn't dictated by ROTS, so she's the only one that can have any real growth or change in her character arc. They'd be fools to give that up. Heck, that's no doubt why they created her in the first place.

For that matter, Ahsoka's the character who's played the largest role in the current season. There have been five 4-part arcs this season: Onderon, the younglings, D-Squad, Maul/Mandalore, and the current Jedi-traitor arc. And Ahsoka's been a central character in three of those arcs, more than Anakin or Obi-Wan. By this point, Ahsoka is effectively the star of the show. Now, one could argue that they're just featuring her so heavily because they know she's about to go out, but I don't think that'll be the case, for the reasons I gave above.

Yeah. I think if they do kill off or get rid of Ashoka it won't be until the very last arc of the show.

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

I pretty much said what Christopher did a couple pages ago. Ahsoka was specifically created for the film and the series, as being a POV type character and one we were going to follow until the series concluded. I doubt that Filoni would fool us all by writing her out early. While that would be a surprise "twist" I think that would piss off and alienate a lot of the show's fans going into potentially the final season. We know now that they have her "ultimate fate" sorted out...but I doubt this would be it.

I don't think either scenario is insurmountable. It wouldn't take much to explain that Maul was restored by dark side magic. Plus Maul remains a very visible figure in Star Wars, due to the recent Phantom Menace 3-D, the Clone Wars cartoon, and other media.

With Ventress, being a blank slate for a new movie could be a benefit. Her back story won't have to be explained in much detail anyway. If she does come back, I could see her as Sith Lord in her own right and the other Star Wars films have gotten along fairly well without exploring much history for Palpatine, Maul, or Dooku.
