* InnocentlyInsensitive: ''Very'' oddly for a Jedi, Obi-Wan fails to realize how important R2 is to Anakin and says, "Well, astromech droids are a dime a dozen".

* RightForTheWrongReason: Anakin spends the episode hating R2's replacement, but he hates it because it's trying to replace R2, not because, well, it's a Separatist spy trying to kill him.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: At one point during R3 and Anakin's shenanigans in space, Anakin complains that the astromech droid is trying to kill him. As the next episode shows, he's entirely right.



* TheMillstone: R3 nearly gets Anakin killed repeatedly, to Anakin's considerable annoyance.

Added DiffLines:

* UndercoverAsLovers: Anakin briefly passes himself and Ahsoka off as a couple to Gha Nachkt, holding her close and calling her "pookums." It's as awkward as it sounds.


* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The opening Battle of Bothawui clearly got a decent chunk of the seasonís budget, with higher-res explosion effects, more detailed shop models with more moving parts, and dozens of lasers onscreen at a time.

* DumbassHasAPoint: When Grievous engages the Republic through the meteor shower, he orders all power diverted to front shields to protect the ships from impact. A battle droid, whose kind is normally extremely dimwitted, questions the wisdom of leaving themselves vulnerable to a sneak attack and is proven right when Rex hits from behind with AT-TE units stationed on the asteroids. That's right, a battle droid had better tactical skills than [[GeneralFailure Grievous]].


* OffModel: During the briefing at the beginning of this episode, when Anakin plays a hologram of an AT-TE, Rex's [[ManInAKilt kama]] is missing. It happens again when it's revealed he's with the [=AT-TEs=] on the asteroids.

* TrackingDevice: R3, when ordered to activate the long-range scanners on Anakin's starfighter while he's flying a search grid, activates the tracking beacon instead. While this draws Grievous to his position, it also leads Ahsoka and Rex to assume Anakin's in trouble and come to the rescue.
