Clone Wars Rewatch: 2.17 "Bounty Hunters"
Hunters A

Courage makes heroes, but trust builds friendship.  I would imagine referencing both helping the farmers learn to defend themselves and the Jedi and bounty hunters teaming up to fight the pirates.

Back to Felucia.  Good to see you.

TCW’s big three, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka!

“That’s not good!”  No, Obi-Wan, it’s not.

Nice discussion about Anakin’s crashing ways.  Though he manages to destroy the droid fighters in the process.

“Why do you even ask for my opinion?  We never do things my way.”
“We crashed the ship your way.”  Yay for snappy dialogue!

Here’s a Hammer!  Pretty sure the Felucians here do not look like the Felucians in The Force Unleashed.  Though the planet could have more than one sentient species.

All right for Dave Filoni-voiced Embo!

When I first saw this episode, I thought the village chief sounded a lot like Mako a.k.a. Uncle Iroh on Avatar: The Last Airbender.  Turns out, the actor is the guy who was basically Mako’s protégé and voiced Iroh in the last season of Avatar, after Mako had passed.

Obi-Wan, always looking at the big picture.

Hondo!  Woohoo!

He’s certainly more of an outright villain this time around.

If there’s one flaw that this episode has, it’s the annoying farmer with the glasses.  Man, I wish they had killed him in the final fight.

“Says the peacekeeper who failed to keep the peace.”  Zing!

Seriously, Obi-Wan could have chemistry with a tree.  You know there are Obi-Wan/Sugi shippers out there somewhere.

I remember Ahsoka’s “You don’t have to look tough to be tough” line causing controversy online.  Mostly among the anti-Ahsoka crowd, even though it’s basically Yoda’s “Judge me by size, do you?” idea rephrased.

That’s a handy hat.

As soon as I saw this episode, I wanted Embo and Cad Bane to share an episode so they could have a Cool Hat-off.  Fortunately, season four provided.

I think we’re all glad they didn’t kill off Embo like originally planned.

Anakin not immediately trouncing Hondo was controversial, but I doubt you can survive in the underworld as long as he has without some fighting ability.

The first time I saw this episode, I thought for sure Anakin was going to kill Hondo, taking another step to the dark side.  They just couldn’t let Hondo go, though.
