This episode was kinda meh. The action revolved around a long chase sequence, and Jedi are the worst in long chase sequences because they are just too calm, so it really sucks the tension out of the scenes. Otherwise, this was just a "moving the plot ahead" kind of episode. And we got the cliched "the bureaucracy refuses to listen and acknowledge the obvious threat so our heroes are on their own" subplot that we've all seen a zillion times. It's lazy writing when you immediately know exactly how the scene is going to end, and I hate scenes like this because they immediately kill my immersion in the story. As a teacher, I appreciated that Ahsoka had by far the best and most realistic approach to teaching that we've seen from a Jedi master - firm, honest, but encouraging, and not actually hurting her student. The space whales were super cool.
