Why do they always end up forming an alliance with Hando?
20 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well, the previous episode had some "bugs" I'd say, which I though would be acknowledged in the next episode. But Oh dear! I was was wrong! completely wrong! In the last episode I wondered why the Jedi council and Anakin wasn't informed in time regarding the younglings, but it wasn't done in this episode too. They were completely ignored by Kenobi and the others, which is indeed a stain on the Jedi name. Th e writers should have given importance to these little details.

The story continues as the younglings almost rescue Tano but are caught. Then Grievous attacks and the younglings are forced to form an alliance with the pirates. And Hando is soft again! Grievous announces the new found separatist control over the system. This makes me doubt as to what exactly Kenobi and the writers were thinking while letting Grievous in on their little plan. Coming to Grievous, just as the previous episode he is terribly under utilized and under powered. The brutality and the rage, the devilish fighting style are totally missing. It isn't the Grievous we know, he is something totally different. Little too far fetched that all the younglings escape unscathed, except a droid who loose his arms.

Direction: Could have been better.

Story: Average.

Music: Good, it was good to hear a piece of original trilogy music in the starting few minutes.

Certainly an entertaining episode, yet it falls apart in story aspect.
