Chapter XXV
AIRED:
Anakin frees the enslaved and mutated Nelvaanians, but must once again draw on his anger in the process. General Grievous creates a diversion, leaving Shaak Ti to fight off over a dozen Magna Droids, leaving only Ronet Corobb and Foul Moudama to protect Chancellor Palpatine. Grievous had somehow got into the bunker and then proceeded to kill both Jedi. Shaak Ti arrives and he literally ties her up. Mace Windu turns up just as Grievous is boarding his shuttle, and damages the General, but his shuttle then takes off. When Obi-Wan and Anakin hear the news, they order their fleet back to Coruscant ...moreless

    This opens with Mace Windu and Yoda helping to defend the city against the attacking battle droids. They figure out that the invasion is really just a distraction from their main intent- the capture of Chancellor Palpatine! Ronet Corobb and Foul Moudama accompany the chancellor to the bunker while Shaak Ti stays behind to hold of the oncoming Magna Guards. She fights over a dozen Magna Guards by herself.



    On Nelvaan, Anakin defernds himself against the attacking mutated Nelvaan warriors. The last one (who was not totally transformed) escapes and helps Anakin. They destroy the devices implanted in the warriors which brings them back to their senses. He then tells Anakin about a crystal that must be destroyed in order to save Nelvaan. The Techno-Union scientists attemp to escape, but the Nelvaan Warriors start to attack them and the battle droids. Anakin finds the crystal, but is unable to penetrate the force field with his lightsabre. He uses his artifical "ghost hand" to crush the crystal, blowing up his hand in the process. He then taps into his anger to kill the remaining Techno Union scientists. The Nelvaan Warriors then rip off the guns that were implanted in place of the hands. When the crystal is crushed, the planet starts to return to normal.



    Anakin returns with the Nelvaans. At first, the women of the village turn away from the altered men. But then when the children embrace them, all is well. Anakin tells Obi-Wan of his vision in the cave. The Nelvanns rejoice and celebrate their victory.



    Palpatine, Ronet Corobb and Foul Moudama finally reach the bunker only to find that Grevious is there waiting for them. He kills Corobb and Moudama and takes Palpatine hostage. The guard droids fighting Shaak Ti stop and back off, and she realizes what has happened. She speed sthe the bunker only to also be defeated by Grevious. He ties her up and takes the chancellor to his ship. Mace Windu arrives, and force chokes Grevious' enitre body, crushing his lungs. He escapes with Palpatine, and Mace goes back to the bunker to rescue Shaak Ti.



    On the starship, Anakin is fixinghis broken hand, replacing it with a new one. Obi-Wan is telling him about the trial of looking into one self and into his own soul. He says that it is a person's decisions that shape their destiny.

    Just then, an urgent message come in from Coruscant. It is Mace Windu ordering Kenobi and Skywalker back to Coruscant. He tells them that Palpatine has been kidnapped, and that they must rescue the Chancellor. The episode ends with a a scence panning out from the space battle above Coruscant. This leads directly into the opening of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.moreless
  • The ending is very well done and I am impressed.

    9.0
    This season finale reveals the climax of the clone wars, where the Confederate forces are seen assaulting the Capital of the Republic: Coruscant. Jedi Master Yoda and Master Mace Windu are busy fighting off the Confederate ground forces, while Master Shaak Ti and two other Jedi knights attempted to evacuate the Supreme Chancellor. But the main ground invasion was only a distraction to the real reason of the attack, the capture of Chancellor Palpatine. General Grievous and his guards were tasked to do this evil bidding.



    In the meantime, Anakin Skywalker freed every mutated Nelvaan prisoners and once again coming close to the Dark Side as he feeds himself through his anger. After having reunite the Nelvaanians, Anakin and Obi-Wan got a distress call to return to Coruscant. It ends, with Mace Windu crushing Grievous' lungs and the battlefield slowly zooming out.



    The way the episode ends with the beginning of Episode 3 is really awesome. This season finale stands true to what Star Wars is all about.moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Anakin: About to destroy crystal

      When Anakin is about to destroy the crystal mutating the warriors, he jumps off and grabs hold of its "stalk" with his robot arm and bends down to destroy, It is just like the part in I, Robot when Detective Spooner jumps off and the same thing and kills VIKI.

    • Aliens: Nelvaanians
      The aliens that Anakin and Obi-Wan encountered are identified as "Nelvaanians." This is undoubtedly a nod to Nelvana, the Canadian studio that produced Droids, Ewoks, and the cartoon from the Star Wars Holiday Special.
