He didn't want force sensitive children he wanted clone DNA that could maintain his "M-count" so he could make vessels to transfer his essence into.

At least that how i view it?

My son and I still watch this but it's a bit of a chore. The modeling / animation is second to none. I just SO tired of trying to explain plots from the trilogies that don't matter anymore. They decided to give us 3 Death Stars and tons of Palpatines... which was boring and lacked creativity; so trying to backstory it just leaves us feeling "meh" about it. Also, giving us these totally fleshed out characters and they have no place in the movies. Maybe they died? Maybe they are in hiding? We don't know and therefore, it's hard to care.

Another episode that moved Clone Force 99 closer to Tantis.

Full steam ahead.

Two episodes left.

That's how I understood it too. the tests are not for midichlorian count, but rather for blood that can withstand an injection of midichlorians. Omega's not naturally Force sensitive, but her blood can handle being a host.

Overall a satisfying ending. I enjoyed the show on the whole and am going to miss it. The last of The Clone Wars era is kind of sad.

Spoiler:
I guess Tech really did die. Kind of expected a fake out and hed show up at some point. Nice to have some stakes though.

Keeping it spoiler free...not the ending I was expecting (the coda), but I do like how it ended. I guess that's paving the way for a potential new series?

I'm glad they didn't go that route.

Im kind of hoping Disney resists the urge to give us an Omega series. Id probably watch it but I never got fully on board with her character.

Sad indeed... I have loved the The Clone Wars series since the beginning. I am going to miss it as well.

Spoiler:
I am happy they didn't go the downer ending I was predicting with the death of most/all of Clone Force 99 and all the clones being wiped out.

And it was a good thing Clone Force 99 stopped Project Necromancer... and in doing so directly contributed to the downfall of the Emperor. Had the project succeeded, the clone of him we saw in TROS would have been much stronger.

Honestly Omega might be the first innately good character since Luke. Its kinda refreshing after decades of conflicted or flawed heroes. So I'm a fan of Omega and wouldn't mind exploring that character more.

I just finished the final episode. Really satisfying ending to an excellent series. I liked the coda and I'd definitely watch an Omega solo series. I'm guessing the coda is about 5-10 years later, so still some years before the OT.
