Episode: "Downfall of a Droid"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 1, Episode 6
Original Air Date: November 7, 2008
(Doesn't the old man realize how important Artoo is going to be to future stories? Oh right, he doesn't even remember owning a droid...)
Meanwhile, the replacement droid, R3-S6, is woefully incompetent. He mistakenly wakes up two IG-86 assassin droids which then attack Anakin and Ahsoka. He accidentally turns on a tracking device that draws Grievous to Anakin's position. It's almost as if he's undermining the young Jedi intentionally...
Like Vader, Grievous always seems to have an escape plan when the mission goes awry. He also shares Vader's lack of regard for his underlings, beheading battle droids with one sweep of his robotic arm when they annoy him. The most meaningful revelation of Grievous's character so far came at the end of "Destroy Malevolence." Ashamed of his own failure, he cuts off communication with his master, Count Dooku, before he scampers away via hyperspace.
