Andrew Leon and I are watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  Every Tuesday, we will be featuring an episode from the series which began in 2008.

After escaping from the planet Abafar, D-Squad catches up with what they assume is a Republic Star Destroyer.  Naturally, all is not as it seems.  The vessel has been stolen by Confederacy droids and loaded with explosives.  Their target is a Republic Strategy Conference. 

Our friends soon discover a small group of surviving Republic droids aboard the ship, led by Bunny, a rabbit droid.  Now all struggle together to foil the Confederacy's evil plan and get themselves safely off the ship before it detonates.  With this episode, the four-part D-Squad story arc finally comes to a merciful end.

Bunny is the nickname of BNI-393, a feminine LEP servant droid.  "Point of No Return" marks her only Clone Wars appearance.  She is voiced by Catherine Taber.

Next week: "Eminence."


  1. awwww, comes to an end but what a cute droid.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I have a huge problem with blowing up R2 in that episode. It didn't even serve the purpose of building tension.

    1. It's interesting, though. So much of the arc is annoying banter between Gascon and WAC. R2 is the one we all care about and, because he doesn't speak Galactic Standard, he's an after thought for most of the story. His near martyrdom at the end does draw one back into why we're all here in the first place.
