"The Deserter" was not as strong as the episode of The Clone Wars that immediately preceded it, but was still an interesting installment that I admire for taking another perspective on who the Clone Troopers are.
Picking up on the heels of "Grievous Intrigue", Obi-Wan, Rex, Cody and a team of Clones pursued Grievous, who had escaped to the surface of the planet below. I remain curious about Rex - he is not mentioned during Revenge of the Sith, despite being something of Anakin's right hand man on this series, so his fate too is a question mark, like Ahsoka. While I do think Rex may die before the end of the show, I certainly wasn't thinking of it currently, especially in an episode like "The Deserter" that Anakin isn't even in. All of which helped make it attention-getting when Rex was shot by a sniper early on in this episode.
