  • Trivia

    • Newsreel:
      Victory on Geonosis! After a massive assault, the Republic has finally recaptured the Separatist planet and shut down its droid factories of doom. An investigation by Luminara Undulli led to the discovery of Queen Karina the Great, whose hive-mind could reanimate dead Geonosian soldiers.

      During the destruction of the Queen's temple, the Jedi apprehended her advisor Poggle the Lesser, and now prepare to deliver the villain to Coruscant for trial...

      Jedi Fortune Cookie: "Attachment is not compassion."

    • Three times during this episode, the Imperial March can be heard breifly:
      First when Ahsoka is describing Anakin to Barriss.
      Second when Anakin arrives to interrogate Poggle.
      Third when Anakin uses the Force to choke Poggle in his cell.

  • Quotes

    • Ahsoka Tano: (In the infirmary, after waking up) Master, on the ship, Barriss was... gone, and she wanted me to kill her. She told me...
      Anakin Skywalker: But you couldn't do it.
      Ahsoka Tano: No, no I couldn't. But, should I have? I mean, it worked out now, but what if we had failed? If the ship docked, and the worms spread, and...
      Anakin Skywalker: Ahsoka, it's your duty to save as many lives as you can. Barriss knew you could save thousands of lives if the worms were destroyed, which she thought meant destroying her, too. But you did the right thing. You knew the freezing cold would kill the worms. Letting go of our attachments is a difficult struggle for all of us. You followed your instincts. I'm sure she would agree that you made the right choice.

    • Clone: (After tasering Barriss) Something we clones know is how to stop a Jedi.

  • Notes

    • Mace Windu's efforts on Dantooine and Kit Fisto's familiarity with Ord Cestus are two minor nods to the Expanded Universe. Namely, the first Clone Wars micro-series where Mace fights a droid army on the plains of Dantooine, and The Cestus Deception novel featuring Fisto.

  • Allusions

    • Barriss Offee: Master Windu has said that we're keepers of the peace, not warriors.

      This references Mace's quote "We're keepers of the peace, not soldiers." to Chancellor Palpatine in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
