  • Episode Description
  • Tasked to protect Senator Padmé Amidala during a political mission to Alderaan, Padawan Ahsoka Tano is plagued by recurring visions of recently-deceased bounty hunter, Aurra Sing. Unable to clear her mind, Ahsoka worries that the stress of conflict is finally getting to her until her visions indeed prove prophetic. Padmé narrowly avoids death when Aurra Sing attempts to assassinate her. Together, Padmé and Ahsoka trap the hunter, and Ahsoka discovers the true villain behind the plot to kill Padmé: the incarcerated gangster, Ziro the Hutt.moreless

  • Always in motion the future is. This (as it seems) is the prequel episode to Hostage Crisis, the season one finale.

  • Notes (4)

    • International Air Date: United Kingdom - November 27, 2010 on Sky Premiere

    • It is revealed that this episode and the season two finale Lethal Trackdown are actually prequels to the season one finale Hostage Crisis. This story arc continues to add to the confusing timeline of the series.

    • This marks only the second episode in which Qui-Gon is mentioned in the series. He was also mentioned in the season two episode Voyage of Temptation. Qui-Gon was, however, indirectly mentioned in The Clone Wars feature film.

    • During the initial scenes on Alderaan, Leia's Theme from the Saga can briefly be heard.

    Trivia (3)

    • Ziro the Hutt mistakenly calls Ahsoka a human during this episode. She is in fact a Togruta.

    • The same effects are used for Ahsoka's visions in this episode that were used for Anakin's in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

    • Newsreel: Criminals captured! Jedi Master Plo Koon and Padawan Ahsoka Tano successfully thwarted an attempt on Mace Windu's life, killing bounty hunter Aurra Sing in the process. Since that time, young Ahsoka has grown strong in the ways of the Force. Now, after several harrowing adventures alongside her Master, the two Jedi have returned to the Temple on Coruscant to receive their next mission... Jedi Fortune Cookie: "The future has many paths - choose wisely."

    • When the medical droid evaluates Padme's condition after she is shot, it says "It is only a flesh wound", much like the famous line of the Black Knight in Monty Python.
