First off we there is some unfortunate news. Ian Abercrombie, who voice acts for Palpatine in The Clone Wars, has passed on. What are they going to do next season for his character?
Did anyone else notice the Indiana Jones hat when Bane was looking for a new hat?
Thoughts: After last week's episode we had high hopes for this one and it didn't disappoint. It had action, great plot, Cad Bane, a Cantina, and munch more. I don't know how the episode fit so munch woth out feeling over stuffed. Picking up from were the last episode left off we see Cad Bane, Obi-Wan in disguise as Rako and Moralo Eval crash landed on the planet Nal Hutta to escape from being captured. When they went to a bouty hunter pawn shop to buy new cloths and when Cad Bane was looking for a hat you can see a hat that looks just like Indiana Jones's hat. The scene when Anakin eneters the Cantina to look for who he think is Rako is great. The detailed in the Cantina was excellent with the scum of the galaxy and complete with Twi'lek dancers. And the episode also highlighted Anakin's path to the Dark Side. The battle at the end of the episode was really good ending with Cad Bane's quote “You’re lucky we’re in a hurry, little lady…we’ll have to dance another time”. I don't wht but the way Bane said "Little lady" like the other episodes is awesome.
The Good: Cad Bane was awesome, The Cantina scene was very detailed, Great fight at the end, Best episode since the Umbara epsidoes,
Plot: 9.6/10- Somehow it managed to fit a lot of goodness into one with out feeling over stuffed.
Action: 8.8/10- The battle at the end between Bane, Anakin, and Obi-Rako was excellently animated.
Acting: 9.5/10- The normal cast is soild as usual.
Art Style: 9.8/10- Nal Hutta looked just you would expect a planet that the Hutts live on should look like, slimy. It is funny if you translate to from Huttese to English the name is Glorious Jewel.
Overall: 9.6/10- Overall "Friends and Enemies" is one of the best Clone Wars epsido since the Umbara story arc.
Closing Comments: After this episode we have high hopes for the next one.
