Episode: "The Citadel"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 3, Episode 18
Original Air Date: February 18, 2011
Even Piell, a Jedi master, has been captured by the Separatists. He is being held at the Citadel, a facility designed to contain rogue Jedi. Obviously a successful rescue will require all of the skill and cunning of Obi-Wan, Anakin, Ahsoka and their clone trooper entourage. The story contains a couple of foreshadowing treats. First, the strike team sneaks through the Separatist defense lines by having themselves carbon-frozen, thus evading detection by life form scanners. Later, we meet Captain Wilhuff Tarkin, a man we already know will have a big role to play in the Empire that is to come. His first interactions with Anakin are particularly interesting.
In The Clone Wars, Piell is voiced by Blair Bess. As an actor, he has appeared in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and Sunset Overdrive among other films. He also worked as a production designer for the TV show Good Food America.
