FEATURE REVIEW: CLONE WARS SEASON 7 EPISODE 9

Ahsoka and Bo-Katan contact Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, asking them for help in apprehending Darth Maul in his new hideout on Mandalore. While Obi-Wan is apprehensive, Anakin and the 501st give Ahsoka a warm welcome until news arrives that General Grievous and the Separatists are attacking Coruscant. Upon Anakin’s suggestion, Rex (field-promoted to commander) and part of the 501st accompanies Ahsoka to Mandalore, forcing Maul’s loyalists under Gar Saxon into retreat. Bo-Katan apprehends Prime Minister Almec, while Ahsoka follows a trail into the city’s tunnel network, only to walk right into Maul’s trap.

FEATURE REVIEW: CLONE WARS SEASON 7 EPISODE 10

Ahsoka faces off against Maul, who mentions Darth Sidious before escaping. Ahsoka relays this to Obi-Wan, who says he had inferred from the recently deceased Count Dooku that Sidious is the name of the Sith Lord who orchestrated the Clone Wars. After Almec is assassinated by Saxon, Bo-Katan helps Rex’s team fight him and his Mandalorians. Ahsoka confronts Maul again, and he reveals that he engineered this conflict to lure Anakin there to kill him because Sidious intends to make him his pupil. Ahsoka and Maul duel above the city and Ahsoka saves Maul from falling to his death; he is then captured by the clone troopers, despite his frantic warnings that everyone will soon die.

FEATURE REVIEW: CLONE WARS SEASON 7 EPISODE 11

With the Siege of Mandalore over, Ahsoka and Rex prepare to take Maul before the Jedi Council on Coruscant. Mace Windu and Yoda contact Ahsoka via hologram and reveal that Obi-Wan has tracked Grievous down to Utapau, indicating that the war may soon be over. On their way to Coruscant, however, Ahsoka senses Anakin’s fall to the dark side, moments before Darth Sidious issues Order 66, branding all Jedi as traitors to the Republic and causing Ahsoka’s clone troopers, including Rex, to turn on her. She escapes, manages to subdue Rex, and frees Maul to distract the other clones. With the help of three astromech droids, Ahsoka then discovers and removes the chip from Rex’s brain, restoring his free will.

FEATURE REVIEW: CLONE WARS SEASON 7 EPISODE 12

As Ahsoka and Rex try to escape from the cruiser, Maul destroys its hyperdrive, causing the vessel to drop out of hyperspace and into a moon’s gravitational field. Forced to fight their way through the clones, Ahsoka tries to prevent Maul from getting away in their shuttle, but she fails and Maul vanishes. Just barely clearing the doomed ship, Ahsoka and Rex escape to the moon, where they respectfully bury the clones and Ahsoka discards one of her lightsabers. Some time later, Darth Vader arrives on the moon and recovers Ahsoka’s lightsaber from the wrecked cruiser.
