Sorry to be snarky but this episode has sharpened my awareness of the incongruity of the relationship between Jedi and Clones. The Clone Troopers are such a finely honed and disciplined military operation while the Jedi are so casual by comparison. The Jedi all have impressive ranks, yet they're constantly moping around, ignoring orders and making dumb mistakes - or at least Anakin and Ahsoka are. Yet the Clones follow their lead like faithful puppies. I'm sure the Clones are in awe of the Jedi and their powers but their devotion stretches narrative credibility. This isn't how a military organization actually works, or at least not one you'd want to root for as an audience. In the real world, the attainment of rank comes as much by virtue of accomplishment as much as ability. You've gotta earn it. It's hard to feel that the Jedi have. They have their own training of course, but it's not exactly military training as far as I can tell. Then again, maybe this is the way the enlisted always feel about the officers above them. Maybe that's the point.
