Yes. In the The Clone Wars episode "The Unknown", a clone trooper's control chip malfunctions and prematurely triggers Order 66, leading him to shoot a Jedi. When news reaches Dooku, he realises what's happened and contacts Sidious. From Wookieepedia's episode summary: ... when Trench explains the clone's actions, Dooku becomes alarmed. He then contacts ...

This was addressed in the Star Wars: Attack of the Clones - The Visual Dictionary and the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith - The Visual Dictionary factbooks. It's a... "Blade emitter guard". ... which presumably prevents (or rather 'guards against') attacks that would damage the lightsaber's Blade Emitter. hat tip to TheLethalCarrot for pointing me in ...

Here are the facts. What drives Anakin to the dark side is his feelings about family, his mother and his wife, but also about his nonexistent father. The Jedi Council came to the conclusion that the Sith still existed after Darth Maul revealed himself. They assumed that meant that there was another Sith out there because as Yoda says "Always two there ...

Seems to me the main function of that shape guard is not so much to keep the opponent's blade off Tyrannus's fingers, but to help keep his fingers off his own blade. His light saber is very different from most, in grip shape and size, and the curve forward of the main grip means the reaction forces on the blade aren't exactly perpendicular to the grip -- in ...

Palpatine tried to appear surprised and helpless, Jedi probably already knew Jedi were 99% (if not full 100% ) certain that Dooku is a Sith Lord. Not just his lightsaber and use of Dark Side, but they found out in The Clone Wars, S6:E10 that he is a man called Tyranus that ordered Clone Army. There is also a comic with Quinlan Vos, where he hears the name ...

Most definitely yes According to Order 66 page on Wookieepedia, the official Star Wars wiki, Count Dooku did not only know but he was directly involved in providing Kaminoans with a bio-chip. See direct quote below Around ten years prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas ordered the clone army for the Galactic Republic. As part ...

While we, the audience, understand the link between Dooku and Palpatine, nobody in-universe does. Palpatine's ulterior motive was to continue to chip away at the behemoth that was the Republic and continue to gain more power for himself by creating situations that would induce fear into the population. He was also trying to spread the Jedi out and thin ...

The guard serves a couple of purposes, and there are both in-universe and out-of-universe reasons for it to be present. In fact, these reasons are actually somewhat intertwined. Out of universe, we have the fact that Count Dooku's style of fighting is influenced by real-world fencing, because the character was played by Christopher Lee, who was a fencer ...

Classic False Flag. Dooku's people come close but not quite close enough to capture Palpatine--as a Sith, Palpatine was quite capable of assuring his own survival against some bounty hunters. The near miss, ideally with some friendly casualties, does three things. First, it creates fear. After all, if Dooku could get someone that close to the well-guarded ...

Based only on the films, I think they became too confident, and that was their collective flaw. The Jedi council were under the assumption that the Sith were extinguished for a long time (Ep I), and I also that think because the Sith were laying low for so long, maybe that impaired the Jedi ability to sense them. The Jedi council also follow dogma moreso ...
