* During the Season 2 finale, Plo Koon states that ''We {The Jedi} are Justice''. This seems like a statement to try and counter his opponent, or even to try and get them to help, but it eerily echoes a certain line from Revenge of the Sith. ''I am the Senate''. Given it came out of Plo, Fiolni's favorite character, it was likely an intention hint that the Jedi are starting to fall, a theme that is explored in many later episodes as the Jedi do more and more questionable things.

* It isn't until the events of the Mortis arc that Anakin comes to realize he's the Chosen One, previously believing it was a myth. Think about the implications of that. Part of Anakin's backstory is that he was immaculately conceived, per his mother's admission. If Anakin felt the Chosen One was merely a story, does this mean he came to believe she was lying as he got older?

** Smartly, this is also shown to work against him when Ahsoka gets a little too fast and loose with orders later on, and he's forced to admit he let her out on too long of a leash. It requires him to recognize that restraint and obedience are sometimes necessary when other lives are at stake. This maturation and insight likely contributed substantially to allowing him to empathize and understand Obi Wan's choices, likely contributing to their increasing closeness during the war.

* 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.

* 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.
