and I are watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Every Tuesday, we will be featuring an episode from the series which
began in 2008.
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 4, Episode 15
Original Air Date: January 20, 2012
"Deception" kicks off a four-part arc in which Obi-Wan Kenobi - unbeknownst to Anakin and Ahsoka - goes deep undercover with a band of bounty hunters out to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine. He switches places with his own assassin, Rako Hardeen (slight spoiler but if I don't say it, I can't say much else), before he gets sent off to prison. Once there, he meets Moralo Eval, the plot's mastermind. Cad Bane is in on the scheme, too. We also get to see our old friend Boba Fett in the prison.
I thoroughly enjoy the trips that The Clone Wars
takes through Star Wars
's underworld so I'm excited for this one. It should also be a good story for watching Anakin control his rage and seeing how Obi-Wan balances his Jedi morality with his new role as a baddy.
Moralo Eval is a Phindian from the planet Phindar. As a child, he killed his own mother out of boredom. This story arc marks his only appearance in the Star Wars
universe. He is voiced by Stephen Stanton. Stanton had a recurring segment on the podcast ForceCast called "Uncle Moralo's Bedtime Stories."
Next week: "Friends and Enemies."
I tend to like Bane, so I was glad to see him in this. I've mostly forgotten everything about this arc, so it's almost like seeing it for the first time again.ReplyDelete
I do like the bounty hunters.Delete
Interesting storyline...looking forward to reading "Friends and Enemies."ReplyDelete
2008? That long ago?ReplyDelete
Crazy, right? The last year we elected a new President.Delete

That gives bored to death new meaning.
I look forward to your thoughts.Delete
