Discuss the January 28th, 2011 episode "Overlords".

This could be a very interesting arc. They are getting into dangerous territory story wise; getting too close to the Saga, in my opinion. I am just really hoping they do not mess anything up with these coming episodes.
Enjoyed this episode. I loved all the foreshadowing, and all the hidden gems in the episode. We have never really touched this close to the Saga, and it was done tastefully, and with much mystery. I enjoyed all the small things they put in for the die-hard fans. As is known, this episode arc came directly from George Lucas, and it is very obvious in this episode. 9/10.
|Second is the direct impact of them asking Anakin if he was indeed the chosen one. I wonder how him not staying on that area really affects the rest of the Star Wars universe. Does Luke do that after he becomes a full Jedi-Knight? ".|
Anakin is the chosen one and him not staying there causes all the trouble. Father says to him,since he was the chosen one he is the only one, who could "control" his kids. With Father gone and no one to control his kids,they(kids) put force out of balance.
THAT WAS THE BEST EPISODE OF CLONE WARS SO FAR!
The prophecy of the Chosen One is point of view; everyone perceives it differently. And again, this episode was pushed more towards more-than-casual fans, and thus some people did not understand everything fully. Being that this story line is so close in storytelling to the Saga, I think it accomplished more than this series has so far.
The children, of course, were a simile of the Force in the Universe. Too much evil or too much good, and the balance is shaken. One needs just enough of both to keep it in balance; enter Anakin Skywalker. His guilt and selfishness are what create Darth Vader. He off-balances the Force; but eventually his love for Padmé brings him back and he finally brings balance as he always should have. If you believe the prophecy, then he finally fulfills the Chosen One's duty. Of course, in the coming episodes, this duty may or may not be what we have thought it to be all this time.
Yeah, there's a big Light Is Not Good trope going around.
Of course, the Chosen One prophecy could entirely be ripped off of Final Fantasy III, in which a balance in either direction is dangerous. (The Dark Warriors actually sacrifice themselves to help you in the end.) It just happens that in both cases the imbalance is toward evil.
