Episode: "The Zillo Beast Strikes Back"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 2, Episode 19
Original Air Date: April 10, 2010
Palpatine has brought the creature back to Coruscant in order to study its seemingly impenetrable armor. When it becomes apparent that the armor cannot be removed without causing great pain and distress, Palpatine orders the beast killed. He makes the grave mistake of assuming the monster is not intelligent enough to understand him. The Zillo Beast escapes and runs through the city in a destructive rampage. But he is not lashing out randomly. His target is specific. The Beast is after Palpatine and Palpatine knows it. For the first (and only?) time in the entire saga, we see genuine fear in the eyes of the Sith Lord. For once, there is a piece in the game he cannot control.
