501st Entry Log
Well, the sad time comes for me to review the final season of The Clone Wars. *Glares at Disney*
Overall, I think Season Five will remain my favorite season. That season, in my view, had no bad arcs and the end did feel like a good end to the series.SPOILERS TO FOLLOW!!!!!
Season Six really felt like it was working toward Order 66. If Disney hadn't canceled it, I kind of doubt the series would have made it past Season 8. Season Five and Six felt like they were working to get loose ends tied up, and brutally so.Five's Arc
This was probably my favorite arc of the series but it was so tragic. I understand killing Tup but I was not happy about them killing Fives. It was the saddest character death I've seen since Toboe in Wolf's Rain.
Even so, I really enjoyed the politics of this arc. At first, I was thinking "How could the Jedi be so blind?" then I realized that in the real world, people are that blind. Still, it's very tragic and I wish he'd survived to the point I'm seriously thinking about writing some sort of fanfic to save the guy.The Clovis Arc
I always enjoy it when the show borrows stuff from the real world.
I was a bit annoyed at Anakin, which is normal. I've wanted to strangle him since Attack of the Clones
. I mean, it wasn't like Clovis knew Anakin and Padme were married. (If Clovis had known Anakin and Padme were married, then I'd have been cheering Anakin on.)
At the end, I almost wondered if Anakin meant to drop Clovis. After all, you'd think one of the most powerful Jedi around could use the Force to lift two people.
Also, Embo and Marrok were cool. I was a little disappointed to find out Embo would target innocent people but I guess it's expected when he's the second best bounty hunter in the galaxy.The Disappeared
This arc was pretty good considering it had Jar Jar and Nightsisters but it's not one of my favorites. Still, the Indiana Jones type things were entertaining.The Yoda Arc
For a "weird" arc, it was pretty interesting. Like the arc involving Fives, it really felt like things were pushing toward Order 66. I thought the end of the episode did a decent job of ending the series, though the Ahsoka arc in Season Five still is the best wrap-up of the series.
Overall, I'm disappointed we don't have more but I'm looking forward to Rebels, which looks like it might be pretty good. I hope it includes characters from The Clone Wars.
