  • Easily the standout episode of Season Two!

    We find Duchess Satine (the pacifist leader of Mandalore) being escorted to Coruscant by Anakin and Obi-Wan plus their clone troopers who are led by Captain Rex and Commander Cody.

    It is revealed that Obi-Wan and Satine were very much close together in the past, around the time he was an apprentice to Qui-Gon. Anakin bears witness to all this talk and can't help but make jokes about the business. The Mandalorians want the Duchess dead, and have inserted assassin spider droids into the cargo of the ship, which are discovered by R2-D2 and some unfortunate clones. Rex has a close shave (but is saved, of course) leading to Anakin and his men dealing with the trouble below in the cargo hold, while up above Obi-Wan is tested by Satine.

    The episode gets more tense as Satine barely escapes harm and is eventually held captive by a traitor (If you've seen the Season 2 trailer you'd know who this is), which leads to a glimpse of the evil of a certain character (As Obi-Wan says after the murder of the villian "Anakin?!?! Of course...").

    There were some great moments like the Obi-Wan/Satine bond, the clone battles, the Anakin persona in this episode.
    The animation and direction was brilliant, and for once the writing wasn't actually all that bad.

    An incredible Nine and a half out of Ten.
