The final chapter in the Savage Opress arc. Sorry for the delay, folks, but I went on vacation and then had A LOT of work to catch up on! So, on with Part 3 entitled “Witches of the Mist!!”
Our "fortune cookie," as we refer to it in the Clone Wars community, at the beginning of this episode is "The path to evil may bring great power, but not loyalty." And, this episode proves it. First and foremost, we get a glimpse at Republic Commandos! Oh yeah! They only make an appearance, but it's exciting to think about how much we will see them in the future. Republic Commandos was a favorite X-Box game of mine, so it was cool to see them incorporated into the show. Upon looking on the dead bodies Obi-Wan says to Plo-Koon, "This is not the work of a Sith Lord, or a Jedi, but a reckless impulsive animal." I LOVED that description of Savage. They still have no idea what they are up against.
A few months back, I had the privilege of attending the special Star Wars: Clone Wars movie screening of the Savage Opress story arc. Here I was, able to see awesome new Clone Wars episodes on the big screen, months before they would air on TV! Needless to say, I was blown away. Season 3 of the Clone Wars has been kind of hard to take in. It was basically politics, politics, politics. If I had to hear the word "corruption" one more time, I was going to tear my hair out. But, after seeing the Savage "movie," my faith was restored.
The first episode, entitled "Nightsisters," is the first in the three-part arc, all of which was written by Katie Lucas. Yes, that's right, George Lucas' daughter! And, let me tell you, she is definitely her father's daughter. I will refrain from reviewing the whole arc since we still have two more episodes to go, but let me just say that Katie brings an amazing talent to this series and gives Season 3 the kick it needed. This is what Clone Wars should be, and it only gets better from here.
