** In "Legacy of Terror" Anakin and Obi-Wan head to the catacombs of the Geonosian Temple to try and save Luminara, who has been captured by the Genonosian Queen with a legion of near unkillable undead Geonosians at her back while trying to capture Separatist leader Poggle. The Queen intends to infest her with a Brain Slug and control her. Anakin and Obi-Wan walk up to the Queen and attempt to talk to her, right in the middle of a group of those nigh unkillable Geonosians.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Obi-Wan, a trained Diplomat as all Jedi are, to attempt to negotiate for Luminara's release and safe passage to the surface and thus resolve the situation peacefully, as all Jedi are supposed to, even if it's a long shot.\\
'''Instead:''' Obi-Wan, who apparently has the Diplomacy skills of a rock, decides to simply state that the Republic is already in full control of the planet and demand Luminara's release, and surprise surprise, the Queen simply sics her unkillable drones on them and they have to make a dangerous escape to the surface.\\

The Queen Karina intends to infest her with a Brain Slug Worm and control her.

'''It Gets Worse:''' Obi-Wan decides to wait until the worm is crawling on Luminara's face to make his move to rescue her, as opposed to long before, then wants to take the worm with them to study it despite the obvious dangers until Anakin does the sensible thing and just crushes it. The entire thing seems to boil down to scholarly interest on Obi-Wan's part.\\
'''You'd Also Expect:''' For the Queen to simply have infested Luminara long before they ever got there, maybe subsequently "letting her go" as a Jedi mole in exchange for Poggle's freedom if she wanted to be a MagnificentBastard.\\
'''Instead:''' She waits until the Jedi are right in front of her to dramatically show off the Brain Worm and describes exactly what she intends to do before trying to infest her, ensuring the Jedi will try and stop her.

** In "The Academy", Ahsoka infiltrates a Mandalorian prison to free Satine after the [[EvilChancellor corrupt prime minister]], named Almec, imprisons her. Almec and his henchmen eventually catch Ahsoka in the act, revealing that [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy the mind tricks don't actually work on his guards]], and as a result, revealed herself (in his eyes) as a conspirator. He then weakens her with a stun shot from one of the auto turrets in the room. Ahsoka is then captured.\\

'''You'd Think:''' One of the Mandalorian Death Watch members would be DangerouslyGenreSavvy and tell the other to stay and keep a watch on the ConveyorBeltODoom, while he goes goes to investigate the disturbance at the entrance, and the guard at the conveyer belt would be able to stop Satine from saving Obi-Wan when she eventually arrives at the scene.\\

** "Slaves of the Republic", Ahsoka grabs her lightsaber and takes out the Zygerrian queen's guards. Anakin then tells her to hold her hostage after the queen orders the Zygerrians to subdue Anakin and Obi-Wan. Ahsoka still has her slave shock collar on her.\\

** "Slaves of the Republic", Republic":
*** Obi-Wan finds the ailing governor of Kiros in one of the slave pits.\\
'''You'd expect:''' That he makes some kind of ''plan'' to get him out at a less obvious time than sunny midday, or if he can't, that he at least attempt to bluff or mind-trick his way out since the pits are, naturally, heavily guarded.\\
'''Instead:''' He grabs the governor and tries to simply charge out of the place in the most obvious manner possible, with only Rex as backup against all the heavily-armed guards. Obi-Wan and the governor are captured more or less instantly and put up on the slave auction.

** "Prisoners": After Anakin and Kit Fisto are captured by Riff Tamson, he imprisons them in a couple of cages made from electric eels (very dangerous) and uses them for interrogation. After refusing to help Padmé from drowning due to a cracked helmet, claiming that he doesn't have to, he exits the room. Anakin and Kit Fisto manage to attempt to create a bubble for Padmé to breath in to prevent her from drowning, but Jar-Jar uses his spit to seal the crack. So that means Jedi can still use the Force.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' The Jedi to be very, ''very'' suspicious about why Count Dooku would give his enemies an army. In the very least, it proves Dooku's goal isn't to defeat the Republic in a war.\\
'''Instead:''' The Jedi discuss the troubling implications of this for a bit, then all get distracted by Yoda hearing Qui-Gon's spirit. No one follows up up on this, and Order 66 goes through.
