Clone Wars Rewatch: 2.14 "The Duchess of Mandalore"
Qui-Gon

Duchess C

Cookie: "In war, truth is the first casualty."  As Satine is about to learn all to easily.

At this point, Satine has been betrayed by Vizsla and Merrick, two of her allies.  She also thinks here that Jerec has turned against her and later we find Almec isn't on the up and up either.  This perfect little society of hers is way more corrupt than it looks.  And maybe, just maybe, it's ready to fall.

That's definitely Matt Lanter as the Mandalorian soldier.

Uh, hey there Padme.  Who invited you again?

Satine has something of a point about a Jedi calling anyone foolhardy.  Though they usually have a good reason for being so.

It's nice to see the Republic being kind of corrupt here.  Let's us see that even though the Empire is much worse, the Republic had its own problems in its final days.

Mon Mothma!  I think this is her first appearance on the show.

Ah, the good old days of Ithorians everywhere!

That Mando assassin sounds a lot like Bossk will at the end of the season.

I like the behind the scenes info that that Ithorian is trying to tell the clone cops he's seen Satine, but that they can't understand a word he's saying.

Nice sweeping shot of hooded Obi-Wan.

I like the fact that Satine realizes the Senate might search Obi-Wan before he does.

The post-explosion muted sound is always fun.

Ah, "Obi".  First Ani, now this.  I wish Lucas had let her call him Ben.

OT line!  Sort of.  "Excuse me, I believe you were looking for me."

They were still being fairly subtle with Palpatine's reactions here.

Dooku has "other ways" to accomplish their goal.  Apparently, he never gets around to trying them.

Mas Amedda is such a sleaze.

Next: Intrigue and death in “Senate Murders”!
