That was Mark Hamill!?!?!?!?
Well, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised since he was both the Joker in some animated Batman stuff and Fire Lord Ozai in ATLA.
Ok, back on track here. I just finished watching everything on Netflix... *sigh* it was so good... and now... it's gone... *depressed sigh*
You know what, I think I might just go ahead and watch the entire series from beginning to end again!

Wow! This arc was amazing! It was so thought-provoking and interesting. It seemed like it tried to connect the spiritual side of the Force that we were introduced in the OT and the science aspect (a.k.a. midiclorians) that came up in the PT, which I liked. Like SWA said, the foreshadowing and the music were brilliant. For me though, even though it was an awesome, almost perfect season finale, I don't agree that this way was the best way to end it... what I mean is that the series should have ended naturally like it was supposed to. Whether that means if this arc still would have been the series finale or not, it should have ran it's course instead of being cancelled and not being able to finish properly with all loose ends tied up. But, for what we got, this arc was the best way to end a cancelled-before-its-time awesome-tacular TV series.
Yet the arc raised a few questions for me.
1. Since the whole living-force/cosmic-force thing seemed to be their explanation of the Force Ghost, did Anakin/Darth Vader do this ritual/training sometime since he became a Force Ghost in ROTJ?
2. In one of Yoda's illusions, he saw Ahsoka dying in the Temple and she said that she was dying because the Sith said that they could complete her training and she still really wanted to be a Jedi... um... since parts of the Yoda-illusions were foreshadowing, will Ahsoka actually go to the Dark Side and die because of it? I guess you could argue that since he saw Mace dead in the Temple, which in fact was not
where he died, then maybe that part was just projecting his fear and guilt over what happened to Ahsoka. Or it could be that since Ahsoka and Anakin were so close, this is (in a way) foreshadowing Anakin's turn to the Dark Side and subsequent demise.... But I guess we'll never know.
3. When that priestess told Yoda that there is another Skywalker and we hear a baby crying in the background, was that just foreshadowing Luke and Leia's coming even though they haven't been conceived yet, or was foreshadowing AND the priestess' way of telling Yoda that Padme is now pregnant with them, like maybe they had just been conceived or something? I feel like it could be the latter since it doesn't seem too far off now from ROTS and it would be a good indicator to the audience on how close TCW timeline is to ROTS, especially now since that arc was basically the series finale and it would be a good way to signal that everything is coming to a close. But again, I guess we'll never know.
4. So, did Count Dooku have Sifo-Dyas killed on the moon and he took his dead body to Felucia to stage it? I was confused at that part.
5. In the last foreshadowing, when Anakin and Yoda led the clones to Dooku and Sidious, Rex was shocked (and presumably killed) by the Force lightning. Does this mean that he's going to die soon? If so, how? But again, I guess we'll never know.
6. Was it just me, or did Dark-Yoda look like Gollum from LOTR?
7. Is it even possible for Rebels
to reach TCW level of overall awesomeness!?!?
