WARNING! This episode contains spoilers from "Bounty"
After the sort-of boring episode of last week, this episode came at quite a nice surprise. While not totally epic, the episode was very well done and I enjoyed watching it. :)
The episode followed an aimless Ventress as she ends up having to work with a group of Bounty Hunters after she kills on of their team. They have to take some cargo to the King of Weirdness(yeah, he has another name, but this one suits him better >:)) which ends up being a lot more complicated then our friend Ventress suspected.
The Good: I pretty much enjoyed the entire episode! There weren't any parts that bored me or that made me angry(cough*Satine*cough). But there were quite a few really good points I enjoyed. First of all, the action was awesome! I loved the different fighting styles of the Bounty Hunters and enjoyed getting to watch the hand-to-hand combat(especially since I do Taekwondo). My favorite part would have to be when Ventress said that she had a future and that she wasn't the person she once was- I loved that line. I knew Ventress wasn't truly as evil like the Sith! And I loved it when she let that girl go, but more on that later.
The scene at the beginning with Tatooine was really cool; it was awesome getting to see Tatooine in animated form as was seeing the Jawas and the Cantina. I also really liked Ventress's outfit; it kind of reminded me of a Jedi tunic..hmm..(I really would like to own it, actually).
I loved the part where the weird bounty hunter guy was hitting on Ventress and when he got all aggressive and mean, she just calmly stabbed him. It was nice to see a girl be able to calmly take care of herself since a lot of the time in that situation since usually they just get all scared.
About the bounty- for some reason I knew that a person was inside that chest; not certain why but I kept imagining someone inside bound up. At first I wanted Ventress to stop the ninjas but when I realized that the person inside was a hostage instead of a rescued person than I definitely was on the ninjas' side since I can't STAND creepos who kidnap people and force them into marriage. So I was very happy when Ventress saved the girl and let her go.
One part that was just hilarious, was when the bird-looking, King of Weirdness was all "my bride is here, mwhahaha!" and when he opened it, a gagged and bound Boba was inside(Ventress put him there because he'd tried to stop her). When I saw Boba in there I laughed out loud even though I knew Ventress had put him there. Serves that psycho right >:).
Boba Fett was also really cool in the episode as were all the other bounty hunters; they were quite good fighters and had unique fighting styles. ;).
The bad: Not really anything to add here. The episode wasn't the best by any chance(to me, anyway) but there wasn't anything to make me mad or anything uninteresting. :)
WARNING. I have a slight spoiler in this paragraph for "Revenge" so if you don't want to hear anything about the episode you can stop here if you want.
So, all in all, this week's episode was good and enjoyable and I look forward to more about Ventress later on.
Not really looking forward to next week's episode since it's all about Savage Oppress and Darth Maul who I don't find very interesting at all(well, Savage interested me before mother Talzin coruppted him with the darkside), but I'm REALLY looking forward to "Revenge" since we get to see Obi-Wan fight Maul and Oppress. And guess what, Obi-Wan has to team up with Ventress!!(I totally knew it was going to happen but it's been confirmed so I'm excited about seeing that!). Even though I don't consider Darth Maul's return canon, I'm just going to enjoy the episode on it's own merit and watch an awesome episode and duel :)
Hope you have a good rest of your day and May the Force be with you :)
