After the disappointing Onderonian story arc we get another disappointing unless episode. "The Gathering" is about young Jedi obtaining their Lightsaber crystals. Although I found the kids less annoying than I had originally expected, they were annoying and this episode was unnecessary. There is really not much to say about "The Gathering"; nothing important happened other than a look into the Jedi culture. My favorite part of the episode was the Wookiee Jedi youngling. I have always wanted to see a Wookiee Jedi on screen and he was fun to watch. Other than that, the episode added nothing to The Clone Wars series. Why was this episode made? I hope that season 5 will redeem its self after this disappointing start. While there was nothing just plain terrible about the episode, it is like a black hole. There was nothing in the episode stood out. The only redeeming factor is the animation. The animation was good as it has been throughout this season.
Overall 6.0/10- While the episode was very disappointing, it was fun never the less.
