i liked this episode, when i saw the preview and saw this arc was still going i was dreading it, but here was a bit of action, what was well balanced and the plot was really good. but what do you think.

it was good but man I every week i keep thinking well we are finally done with the droid arc only to find the next episdoe is more of that story.

This has been one long arc, one of the longest I can think of.

Four episodes, no longer than the other two this season.

Anyway, I'm just waiting anxiously for the Maul-related episodes to arrive.

This was one of the least interesting ones I can remember. Glad it's over.

The story arch doesn't feel too long, but what does bother me with it is that I felt it reached a sort of climax with Gregor's sacrifice last time, made this one seem unnecessary

This episode is PROOF of PLOT ARMOR. This needs to go on TV R2 surviving the epicenter of a blast of that magnatude and still being repairable and fine at the end of the episode......WHAT DA FORCE?! WHAT IS HE MADE OF PHRIK? I mean I know he was really banged up and needed serious salvage. BUT HE WAS RIGHT WHERE THE BOMBS WENT OFF! If it was any other Droid they'd be so outta luck. HE AT BEST WOULD HAVE BEEN fully disintegrated or blown into unrecognizable pieces. But because he's R2 and he is in the Movies by the grace of George Lucas he survived.

Loved the buzz droids. And Glad to see R2 didn't deal with them the way he dealt with them in Revenge.

The only good episode in this entire episode was the one with Gregor. Really hope he returns.

But Im really excited to see Sidious/Ventress/Savage/Maul duel. Looks insane.

I think they actually ended this arc rather well, and the explosion was quite a spectacle, but it probably should have been a single episode. The first was alright but the next two were just boring (I didn't really get a kick from seeing Gregor). The fourth part made up for it though but it all just feels like padding for the really meaty stories including Maul, Ventress and Sidious.

I'm a little late to the party but never mind.

This arc started off admittedly rather dull, and it took me a while to get used to the characters. But I liked the ending, and that explosion was really awesome (in fact the best thing about this arc has been the visuals, really nice).

However there seems to one small plot hole if you will, with this episode:

Anakin Skywalker was aboard the space station. So why did the Separatists attack? Sidious assumedly knew about all major Separatist movements through Dooku, so wouldn't he know about a major plot like this that could have turned the tide of the war? 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.
