When R2D2 goes missing in action during a skirmish in an asteroid belt Anakin insists on mounting a rescue mission. Although Obi-Wan is against wasting time on a droid, Anakin explains the R2's memory has never been wiped and thus carries all of the Republic's tactics and base locations. Meanwhile, the plucky Atromech has been picked up by Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nachkt in his freighter, Vulture's Claw. Nachkt plans to sell the droid to the highest bidder.

Did You Know?


The ATTE RUL3Z text seen in "Rookies" appears once again (though, technically, this one came first... and fits the context quite well), this time on Ahsoka's tactical screen aboard the Resolute. There's some additional text underneath too that says "TAKE THAT GRIEVOUS". See more »


Anakin cuts off one of the IG-86 assassin droid's arms. When the assassin droids jump up into the rafters they both have two arms again. The droid fighting Ahsoka has two arms as it jumps down, but on landing it has only one. See more »


Ahsoka Tano: Suicide is not the Jedi way, master.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: [via hologram] You should listen to your Padawan.
Anakin Skywalker: As you listened to yours, my old Master?

Spoiled by the music
14 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The previous episodes in this series have all had a great score - it has fit the mood and moment very well. Good emotion.

In the episode before this one, there was some kind of dance music played by new recruits that fit.

Not sure why, but this episode contains a lame dance sound-track theme throughout its entirety. All action scenes lose their impact. The consistency of the score means that the episode feels very flat and contains no dramatic or epic moments whatsoever.

It makes no sense. There is no build-up or tension. Only oonceoonce oonceoonce bleeepbleepbedoopeedoopeee oonceoonce lightsaber lightsaber R2R3 oonceoonceetc... Ah it's so bad... Totally ruined.

There are many moments where the music could have turned this drab episode into something better than it actually is.

The story is good, the plot is good. Episodic characters are good. Animation seems to be slightly lower FPS than other episodes in places.

There is nothing wrong with this episode. No fault - except the music is completely wrong, not fitting with star-wars nor the content.

I haven't watched these series for a few years. I remember being annoyed at this music thing last time around. Hopefully it was a one-off, because it stinks up the episode even worse this time around.
