Come back Feb 19th. They seem in a big hurry to finish this series.

I wonder if they've got another series planned shortly after this

I got mixed up forgetting they're doing double episodes and inadvertently watched the second first
Pretty emotional if you invest too much in cartoon characters ;)
For some reason, DisneyXD Canada won't premiere til next week

So sad to see him go.

I'm really not liking the wolves storyline, way too slow

I liked how they made a reference to the Clone Wars series in the latest episode.

Edit: Seems like the series is coming to an end? NOOOOOO!

SPOILERS:

The series is over. They kind of ended it but also left it wide open for other stories. Ezra and Thrawn are somewhere out in space on the Star Destroyer with the Space Whales. Sabine and the Ashoka are going looking for Ezra post RoTJ.

Seems like that could set up a post RoTJ show? It felt pretty open ended, which I thought was a route they might go, so they could reuse the characters again. If they killed any of them, it would of prevented further stories with them. Given that Ashoka was alive during the Eps IV to VI, it's a bit weird she never showed up in the movies. An almost Jedi out there (other than Luke) would of been helpful. Then again, maybe she was, just not involved the rebellion stories we saw in the 3 movies.

They had to resort to space whales? Were they that desperate to end the series quickly that they had to resort to some hail mary bogus crap?

Some points after seeing the finale.

- Space whales. That seemed silly and a bit rushed.
- Hondo playing a good guy just seemed wrong.
- I love how they all but confirmed that Rex is Nik Sant from ROTJ.
- Dave Filoni has confirmed that Ezra and Thrawn are still alive, so I expect we'll see them back in the new show.

I didn't love the finale, it felt uneven and deserved a more grand ending than what we got. I'm definitely surprised at how much I ended up loving this series. It didn't start out well but it really rounded out to be almost as good as what Clone Wars was.

I hope the next series will feature Ahsoka more prominently. She was the breakout star of the Clone Wars and her story of what she's been up to is so interesting.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I think initially Asoka was meant to be killed off but they brought her back due to extreme fan reaction. It makes sense that they should have killed her off, since in the movies there was so few jedi left. Having an apprentice of Anakin simply makes no sense she never reached out to train luke or at least look out for him. I'm sure they'll find a way to kill her off in the next series

I think it's fine that they kept her alive. She didn't want to be apart of the Jedi Order after Clone Wars, so I don't think it's unreasonable that she doesn't want to train Anakin's offspring. Also, I doubt she even knows Anakin had kids.
Baaaaaaaaa!
