And if he did, how come he was willing to let the Chosen One die? Which he planned from the word go to make his apprentice? I suppose Sidious could have been unaware of this plot, but it seems somewhat unlikely.

And yes, R2 was perhaps wearing a little bit too much plot armour, that could have been done more believably...

Altogether though, an enjoyable side track to the general 'pew pew'. I look forward to the next arc.
I tend to explain all the missions that put Anakin in peril as - if he fails, he's not worthy. Much like how in a comic book, Sidious was willing to offer up Vader alone to a Jedi who wanted to become his apprentice. The victor of the duel would take his place at his side.

As for R2-D2's plot armour, it's pretty ridiculous. It would have been much better to to have Wack die to show the hazards of war, or at least one of the other droids.

Anyway, I'm just waiting anxiously for the Maul-related episodes to arrive.
You and me both. I can't wait to finally see some mandalorian action!
BioWare consider the ideas in THIS thread.

This was an unnecessary episode to an already overlong arc. That said, it was actually pretty good. The buzz droids seem total pointless though because they look too big to be covert and they seem to make an awful lot of noise. The explosion was pretty cool, BZ's death was actually kind of tragic, and R2 was kind of bad ***. But I can't get over how long and pointless these last two story arcs have been. They have served exactly zero point other than to be a vehicle for some Keystone Copsesque slapstick. Anyway, I hope TCW is done with these ancillary character stories. I have had all of the younglings and droids I can stand.

Well the young-ling story arc was suppose to be stand alone and not part of the new season then they added it in. I think it was a bad idea to put it back to back with the droid arc though it was to much. Hopefully we get some more action although this episode was at least better in that department than the last 2. And that explosion at the end look outstanding have to give props to the animators on that one.
