  Hondo is such a great character.

  Dooku holds a grudge. Enjoyed seeing him getting revenge on Hondo.

Hondo, like Quark, is a very simple man. Profits are all that matters.

  Another satisfying conclusion to a 4-part arc. Although I didn't like any of the younglings (except maybe Gungi and Byph) at an individual level, I did like seeing the development of the group.

David Tennant's return as Huyang is also a positive for this episode. He has a couple of humorous interactions with Artoo that I particularly enjoyed.

The music at the beginning sounded better than usual. The use of the Force theme is also noticed and appreciated.

The Slave I lives on! I hope some type of story addresses how Boba gets his hands back on his ship.

This one gets an extra star for Ahsoka holding her own against Grievous. This is an enemy that gives Jedi like Obi-Wan and Anakin trouble and she was able to fight to a standstill and get away. As a character created specifically for this series, it has been a joy to see her develop. Snips is becoming a force to be reckoned with!

4/5

  This episode is the conclusion I hoped for after seeing the first episode in the arc.

Hondo was back to his normal self, profit motivated but with a definite code. Maybe it is as he says, his mood changes daily.

I would have liked to see the younglings evolve to this level more gradually, but this is a good place for them to grow to over the course of one arc.

If Disney ever comes back to do anything else in this era, these younglings are great characters that are left in a way that they can be explored further.
