This episode definitely lacked the spark the last several episodes of The Clone Wars have had, but then again, the show has been delivering some of their best material yet of late. "Lightsaber Lost" focused on Ahsoka, after her lightsaber was stolen by a pickpocket and she desperately worked to get it back, afraid of what it might be used for in the wrong hands.
The first act of this episode felt rather sluggish and there wasn't a lot of energy to the proceedings, as we watched Ahsoka do a bit of detective work with elderly Jedi Tera Sinube. A lot of the episode had call backs to Attack of the Clones, in which Anakin kept losing his lightsaber, including some direct dialogue references, such as Ahsoka noting Anakin always warns her, "Your lightsaber is your life" which of course was the same thing Obi-Wan told him in Episode II.
I could have done without the stereotypical Italian accent given to Bannamu, the thief. I like the idea of different characters on The Clone Wars having different accents (it's a big galaxy after all!), such as Aalya Secura's French accent or Kit Fisto's Jamaican accent. But Bannamu was very over the top and goofy, and sounded about as genuine as Mario. We also were told about an area called "the slum district" in this episode, which was fairly silly sounding and on the nose.
