* In "Carnage of Krell", we see a transmission from a clone trooper in the field warning Rex's battalion about Umbaran soldiers capturing clone uniforms and weapons, leading Rex's and Waxer's troops to open fire on each other, mistaking each other for Umbarans in disguise. It turns out that the intel was really a ploy by Krell to pit the clones against each other, which brings up the question on how the clone who made the original transmission came across the false information in the first place. It's possible the Umbarans were really planning to attack in disguise and Krell merely took advantage of the opportunity- but then again, being a Jedi and all, he could have pulled a mind-trick on a clone trooper and planted the misleading intel in his head so that the clones would assume it was coming from a reliable source.

* Why did it take Worm!Bariss longer to be affected by the cold than the Clone Troopers? In the old E.U at least, her race comes from a cold (and dry) planet, meaning her body is better suited to withstanding them than the baseline human clone troopers.

* The creators say not to think to much about what the natives burn on the ice world Orto Plutonia. This, however, might not be an example of [[BellisariosMaxim Bellisario's Maxim]] so much as a warning against potential NauseaFuel. Any pioneer who walked the Oregon Trail back in the days when thousands of buffalo roamed the plain could tell you that dung is plentiful and makes a darn good fire, even if it is stinky. Now, how the animals on Orto Plutonia managed to consume enough plant life to produce that dung...yeah, that's where the FridgeLogic comes in. Maybe it's a good thing not to think about this too much...
** Easy to answer, plants can grow in all sorts of inhospitable environments, underground caves with hot springs are one example.

** In fact, the depiction of Death Watch in the show is actually pretty close to pre-Traviss depictions of Mandalorians in general during the Legends continuity. In the Legends era, Mandalorians were established as repeated ''willing allies'' of the '''Sith''', literally deifying war, committing multiple acts of conquest, enslavement, murder of civilians, and even outright ''genocide'', and were pretty much ruthless killers for the sheer love of killing. When their empire was shattered by the Jedi stopping their campaigns of conquest, they became mercenaries purely for the opportunity to keep fighting and be paid for doing so. The vaunted Mandalorian code of honor that Traviss [[ShillingTheWesley loved to write about]] never existed until she created it, and was retconned into the greater Legends continuity -- even then, it was something that came about only a decade or so before the Clone Wars broke out, and which was initially a small movement.

* Imagine what will happen to Queen Julia and her order of force-sensitive's when the Empire comes into power. Chances are they were all wiped out by the end of ''RevengeOfTheSith''. Seems poor [[TheWoobie Jar Jar]] can't stop losing the people he cares about most.

to:

* As [[Website/SFDebris Chuck]] noted during his review of the Mandalore arc, it makes sense that the Mandalorians would view any large Republic presence with enough hostility to join the Separatists: in the EU, the Republic practically ''shattered'' the Mandalore Empire, leaving massive cultural scars, and with that, resentment to the Republic.

** It also demonstrates the inherent problem of Order 66 as a legal order. It is clear that the clones would rather have the Krell alive and put on trial to explain himself rather than simply killing him at first sight like they will do to other Jedi. Rex, despite given the authority to execute Krell and has [[HateSink every reason to do so]], couldn't pull the trigger and Krell mocks him for it. If this had been Order 66, the hesitation would be enough for the Jedi general to escape and the clone commander dead. This is all foreshadowing that Order 66 is not a normal order, but rather a secret biochip command code that overrides the clone's free will and make them openly attack Jedi on sight.

* Many people complain about the incompetence of the Battle Droids, and how the Separatists don't win enough battles. But it's interesting to note that the entire war has been orchestrated by the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, who doesn't actually want the Separatists to win. He just wants them to be enough of a threat to further his own political and religious ideals. It's really not far-fetched at all to imagine that he instructed Dooku to construct Battle Droids that weren't as efficient as they would need to be in order to actually ''win'' the war.
* Some have pointed out that Anakin gives Ahsoka far too much freedom, but when one recalls how Anakin's own apprenticeship to Obi-Wan, this makes a lot of sense. Anakin didn't like his apprenticeship, so he is going the opposite way with his padawan. A hint on it comes from the pilot movie: the Grand Army's [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/AV-7_Anti-vehicle_Artillery_Cannon indirect artillery cannons]] prove themselves devastating on the droids, but the Separatist army never aquires similar weapons. Given that Grievous and other Separatist generals know what they're doing, it's rather jarring... Unless they're being sabotaged.

* One of the few times Palpatine looks annoyed in the series is when Mandalore and its allied systems successfully remain neutral. Since he controls both the Republic and the Separatists, it doesn't matter which side wins any given battle--but if a powerful group stays out of the conflict, he can't control them. This is also why he went to fight [[spoiler:Darth Maul]] personally. He needed Mandalore handled quickly and efficiently, and couldn't trust that either side would be able to manage it without disrupting his plans.
