  • Pete having the deaths of major characters spoiled for him.
  • Chrysanthe listening to the Phantom Menace soundtrack on repeat.
  • Obi-Wan's energy shackles.
    • Callback: in an earlier draft of the script for Star Wars, Luke was held in very similar restraints by the Native Tatooiners (see Minute 30). Lucas recycling unused ideas.
  • The texture of this scene.
  • This scene actually has two good actors getting to talk to one another. Callback to the Separatist cabinet meeting with of people who weren't there.
    • Christopher Lee/Dooku is intentionally bad acting.
  • Flash forward: Traitor!
  • Ring Theory: around this minute in ESB is when our heroes are captured on Cloud City.
  • Dooku plays the "Qui-Gon" card.
    • This is the first time we learn about the relationship between Qui-Gon and Dooku and this with Obi-Wan.
