  • Trivia

    • Ahsoka called Cad Bane "slimo" while she was held captive by the bounty hunter. "Slimo" is huttese for "slime ball." Anakin uses this term in reference to Sebulba the Dug in the podrace scene of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Zam Weesel also calls Jango Fett "slimo" seconds prior to her death in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

    • Trooper Denal was last seen in the Season One episode, "Downfall of a Droid".

    • Goof:
      Rex orders Execute Battalion to board "ATAT300," but the proper designation for the Clone Wars-era walker is an AT-TE. The other walker identified by number is 773.

    • Newsreel:
      Stolen secrets! Villainous mercenary Cad Bane was hired by Darth Sidious to steal a holocron from the vaults of the Jedi Temple. After fleeing the scene of the crime, Bane hunted down and captured Master Bolla Ropal, who has a crystal which holds secrets of the Jedi Order. As a Separatist fleet arrives to help the bounty hunter, Anakin Skywalker races in to cut off their escape and stop Bane from delivering the stolen holocron.

      Jedi Fortune Cookie: "Overconfidence is the most dangerous form of carelessness."

  • Quotes

    • Ahsoka Tano: Enjoy this while you can, slimo! This burning boat is about to finish us both off!
      Cad Bane: Oh, we have time. The bond between a Jedi Master and his apprentice is strong!
      Ahsoka Tano: Which means my master will be coming for me any minute!

    • Admiral Yularen: So, the mission was your usual version of success, then?
      Anakin Skywalker: If by success you mean I won, then yes.

    • Cad Bane: (To Anakin Skywalker) If I activate this control, the outside airlock will open and she will be sucked into oblivion. Do you think you can kill me and then save her before she's pulled out into space? It's a horrible way to die.

    • Admiral Yularen: Of all the Jedi, why did I have to end up with Skywalker?

    • Battle Droid #1: We're defending the bridge alone? Against the Jedi? I hate this job.

    • Nute Gunray: (To Cad Bane) You'd better live through this. I want my money!

    • The original airing of this episode received 2.581 million viewers.

    • Long time fans will find something familiar in the term "Kyber memory crystal." In early drafts of the original script to A New Hope, the Kyber crystal was a Force-focusing artifact wanted by the Jedi and the Sith. This was eventually written out of the story in subsequent drafts, and a variation of the artifact -- spelled as the Kaiburr crystal -- made its way into the 1978 novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye. During the script development of Episode II, the term "Kyber" was nearly resurrected. The weapon that Jango Fett used to kill Zam Wesell was first identified as a Kamino kyber dart. This was changed to saber-dart in the finished movie. Finally, after over 30 years, the term "Kyber" with its original spelling has worked its way into a canon Star Wars story.

    • The script originally called for black-hued retail droid guards to haul Master Ropal's unconscious body.

  • Allusions

    • Anakin Skywalker: It's a trap!

      This infamous line was said by Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
