The Clone Wars Preview Guide: "Sabotage"


By: Benjamin Hart

After an extended hiatus from the small screen, Anakin Skywalker & Ahsoka Tano return to Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the seventeenth episode of season five, Sabotage. The Clone War continues to rage across the Galaxy and we find Anakin and Ahsoka on the frontlines of war torn Cato Nemodia. But a tragic attack on the Jedi Temple forces them to return to Coruscant and investigate. Could a there be a turn coat amidst the ranks of the Jedi? Find out this Friday, February 1st at 8:30pm ET/PT on Teletoon(in Canada) and Saturday, February 2nd at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network(in the U.S). You can check out the full episode guide on here.

Moral:  “Sometimes even the smallest doubt can shake the greatest belief.”

Official Synopsis: In the first of this four-part episode arc, Anakin and Ahsoka are called back from the frontlines to investigate a deadly explosion at the Jedi Temple. Clues surface that a Jedi might have been responsible for the blast in “Sabotage.."

  • The four episodes of this arc are all named after Alfred Hitchcock films: Sabotage (1936), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), To Catch a Thief (1955) and The Wrong Man (1955).
  • “I’m afraid one can become the other,” says Anakin, referring to past political idealists who have betrayed the Jedi, including Count Dooku and General Krell from Season Four. It’s ironic, given his future.
  • Russo-ISC’s speech pattern, name, and habit of flipping his visor to punctuate his speech are all nods to David Caruso’s role in CSI Miami.
  • In addition to an image of a crossed-out clone trooper(seen above), the Temple protester signs said “The Jedi are corrupt,” “Stop cloning violence”
