On hottest day in summer, my life alone with a cat began. The usual morning. The sunset I saw. The precious time we spent together. The world continues to move on a little, gentle promise. That’s why… Even if I get hurt, even if I stand still… I’m able to walk ahead.
I was talking with darthvronton and I decided to finally put this out there, because I personally haven’t ever seen this discussed.
Ever since I watched this episode, Cody’s placement in the hall and his expressions have always fascinated me.
He’s not moving to stand beside Obi-Wan and Anakin, and he actually turns away as soon as he sees them. And he’s clearly not standing beside Rex, though he should be. He remains off on his own looking down and semi-turned away until Slick gets to the part where he says “I wanted something more”. Then Rex speaks against Slick’s words, and only after Slick continues
about loving his brothers, only then does Cody say something to Slick
about how if he really loved his brothers he wouldn’t have put them in
danger. It’s like he wasn’t going to say anything but once Rex did it became easier.
Was Cody sympathizing? Was he merely ashamed?
Like, something is happening here. Right?
The moral to this episode is: “Truth enlightens the mind, but won’t always bring happiness to your heart.”
know that could be in reference to any number of characters depending
on how you look at it, and I know the morals are more a “theme” than directly at one person usually, but I still always wonder about it.
