Synopsis: To locate the missing colonists, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka go undercover to infiltrate the slavers on Zygerria. Anakin struggles with his emotions as a wily Zygerrian queen forces him to take questionable actions in order to carry out his mission.
Yeah that episode is most certainly a highlight for this season. Awesome action sequences, great visuals and a really cool plot - the suicide part was a cool if a bit creepy. It's also nice to see how Anakin respons to the topic of slavery - in this episode we could most certainly see him balancing on a thin line between acting like a jedi and letting his true feelings go.
Haven't finished watching it, but I had to chime in.
Whoa. What a great episode. Dark. Gripping. And the cinematography/camera movement is pretty fantastic, better than most episodes. I liked the nods to the ROTJ sarlaac pit scene and the hint of Luke Skywalker's theme (?) when Anakin nods to R2.
Having finished the episode, I would rank it very high (perhaps above the Umbara arc - but just this episode). The dialogue was tight and thoughtful. I like the focus on Anakin's past. And that execution by fall of the slaves was nightmarish.
Can't wait to see how this arc concludes.
Anyone know who directed this episode? Update: It was Brian O'Connell, who also directed the similarly pretty great Trespass and Voyage of Temptation episodes. But he's also directed a handful of other episodes.
Another great episode. Watched it with my kids & my youngest said he had seen this before - went through his old Dark Horse Comics & sure enough this story is taken straight from the first 6 episodes of The Clone Wars comics which were published in 2008. The story changes slightly but it’s the same theme - if it sticks to the same as the comics - the ending should be awesome!
