rematch ? so she didn't die on Yavin ? that's a little lame. if Maul wasn't cut in half, he would probably come back for a rematch himself.
Yes of course he would, but Ventress only fell off a cliff. And we've seen Jedi fall from tall heights before without a scratch, or grab on to outcroppings or vines to slow their fall. We saw her fall and that was it... If a Jedi has been known to survive such falls, there is no reason to think a Dark Jedi can't survive as well.
Anyway, for more information on the Clone Wars please refer to this site.. They've compiled a whole bunch of things that has happened over the last three years during the war.
good point. lesson learned: never assume. like when we assumed that Shaak Ti was killed back in Volume 1. ok maybe they got me just for a moment. can't blame me, seeing how the animators wanted to lead us on. but poor Shaak Ti seems like a loser againts Grievous. losing twice somemore.

A bit of spoiler here about the alternate universe....just found out that Darth Maul didn't die dispite being cut into half, and he return for a rematch with Obi Wan...this happens between EP3 and EP4...I'm looking forward to ordering that book...its gonna be awesome to read!
Managed to watch all 5 episodes last week. Leads right into the EpIII movie it seems. Thought that was also the case with the book Labyrinth of Evil. Could someone who has read this book clarify? Parallel plots leading right up to the movie? Seems the Clone Wars series has all the major characters engaged up until the battle at Coruscant, so what else can they be doing in a parallel plot?
1. It seem to me that the Whiphid Jedi K'Krukh (introduced years ago as the Padawan to Master Lilit Twoseas in the comic "Acts of War") is killed by Grievous, but other sources indicate that he survived until at least very late in the Clone Wars.
Are we sure they're dead? Maybe just critically injured and unconcious. Anyway, isn't it already "very late" in the Clone Wars towards its closure in EpIII?
Ridiculous to see Palpatine dragged around like a doll in the pursuit through Coruscant, consider his 'secret' identity!
Grievous and his bodyguards just seem too powerful. Are his origins explained somewhere (books)?
3. I was expection the Nelvaan storyline to be boring, but the final episode made it magnificent! Great to see those Skakoans get what's coming to them in the end, although Anakin's excessive use of violence at the end can be a bit disturbing to the younger viewers.
Well, did find it a bit slow compared to the action on Coruscant.
4. Lots of violence on Clone Troopers. They get skewered and sliced by lightsaber (with visible wound marks), smashed into walls, blown away by ship's turbolasers, and even squished by giant creature's hoof. It seems they sacrifice a lot by being clones whose sole purpose in life is to obey their Jedi Generals and die of the Republic. Makes it much more poignant when THE General Order is transmitted in ROTS.
Since they are clones of Jango Fett, would have expected them to do better rather than obliterated like flies
6. Tons of ROTS-created vehicles in action! And the first appearance of Commander Cody! And his entire brigade has jetpacks!!! Awesome!
Eh, who was he?
7. Venator-class Star Destroyer seem to be more of a carrier than a battleship, as seen when its upper spine open up to disgorge ARC-170 starfighters. More internal volume can be used to store vehicles since its ion drives are outside its hull, as opposed to the Imperator-class of the original trilogy.
More info from the ROTS cross-sections book. Like aircraft-carrier in space.
Did you mean 'Imperial'-class instead of 'Imperator'-class? The Venator-class seems vastly different functionally from the Imperial or Victory classes.
8. I wonder how the Jedi Generals administrate the fleet and army under their control. It seems that the Jedi lead the attack, unlike real life generals. I would like to see in some manner in the future an Order of Battle for each fleet, and the logistics required to maintain one in the war.
Maybe that's why they weren't doing too well in the war. The Generals were too busy fighting to properly coordinate strategy!
Addendum: 9. I was quite disappointed with the short vignette on Kashyyyk. That was it? Just a tiny introduction to the big battle we'll be having in ROTS? I thought they would follow it up later in the series but I guess just the advance of the Separatist transports as seen by an adult and a child Wookiee is all they're giving is for now.
Another lead-up into EpIII, maybe explaining why Separatist troops are already in Kashyyyk.
Anyone keen for a complete Clone Wars seasons 1-3 screening session soon one weekend night? Please make known and the community coordinators will see what we can do.

2. Eh, who was he?
1. It was implied that they died by the ARCs' sensor scans. Of course, at least K'Krukh didn't if he appeared later on. It was very close to ROTS only from Chapters 22-25. Chapter 21 takes place an undeterminate amount of time (could be months, or could up to a year or so) prior to Chapter 22.
