Clone Wars Rewatch: 2.13 "Voyage of Temptation"

Voyage B

Cookie: "Fear not for the future, weep not for the past."  I'm sure the past would refer to any regrets Obi-Wan and Satine might have.  As for the future, well, that's often what the Jedi are all about.

Cody and Rex.  Pulling out the big guns.

For once, it's Anakin smirking knowingly at Obi-Wan.

"Half truths and hyperbole known as Obi-Wan Kenobi."  Nice description.

It's a bit of a contradiction between the relationship Obi-Wan and Satine at the end of last episode and the beginning of this one.  Maybe she's putting up more of a front for her fellow politicians, though.  Like she says, she's the representative of all of these systems, so she has to put forth their point of view in the clearest way possible.

"Even extremists can be reasoned with."  This line leads to a little bit of contention between me and the Clone Cast.  They felt that by definition, an extremist would not negotiate hence making them an extremist.  I would contend, though, that an effort can be made to deal with them diplomatically, possibly pulling them away from their more extreme views.  That's what compromise has had to be about throughout history.  So I think Satine has a point, but she does need to accede that some of Obi-Wan's points are valid.  Ironically, she's being kind of extreme in her views and Orn Free Taa of all people is the one with the most reasoned statement.

Then again, the hardening of both stances likely has more than a little to do with their history together.

Obi-Wan's glare to Anakin's "sounds romantic" line is classic.

Obi-Wan uses the Force to pull out a chair.  A little surprising to see it used so mundanely.

"Looks like the contents of this box are missing."  Wow, thanks Rex.

Obi-Wan gets another "not good".

The Redeye walk is just a little creepy.

Anakin has more trouble with that assassin droid than I'd expect.

I don't even want to know what those mini droids are doing under that trooper's helmet.

"This line of questioning borders on torture"?  I think Satine might be overreacting a little here.

Obi-Wan's line about the droid liking Merrick has shades of the Tribble not liking the Klingon agent in Star Trek's "The Trouble With Tribbles".

"What about the mother?"  "Haven't seen it."  Awww!  Nice jump.

Obi-Wan's pretty touchy when it comes to Satine.

Little surprised the Mandalorian guards don't have blasters at all.

Quite a bombshell by Obi-Wan.  Would've left the Jedi for Satine.

Too bad Satine doesn't know how to set a gun to stun.

"Who will strike first and brand themselves a cold blooded killer?"  Anakin: "I will!"

Imperial March!

Anakin did what needed to be done.  But he was practically smiling about it.

She's not sure about the beard.  I wonder what she would have thought about the long hair.

Next: Mandalorian assassin in "The Duchess of Mandalore"!
