It was A LOT to take in and Star Wars fans are still reeling from its awesomeness. Here are just a few of the buzzed reactions going around on social media…

There’s only one word to say, really.

See what I mean?

If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch and be prepared to scream like you’ve never screamed before.

“Much better than every prequel or sequel of the original #StarWars trilogy.”

Freaking epic!

As had been teased before the season began, this episode moved The Clone Wars into the actual timeline of Revenge of the Sith, meaning the Siege of Mandalore takes place within the events of the final prequel. This is truly the end of an era, then, as it’s the final time Anakin, Ahsoka and Obi-Wan Kenobi will be together. And the last time Ahsoka will see her former Jedi master until her battle with Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels

“Old Friends Not Forgotten” might be the beginning of the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but we’ve still got three more episodes to go. The punningly-titled “The Phantom Apprentice” and the penultimate installment “Shattered” air over the next two Fridays. The grand finale, “Victory and Death,” then arrives on Monday, May 4th AKA Star Wars Day.
