Episode: "The Wrong Jedi"
Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 5, Episode 20
Original Air Date: March 1, 2013
Ahsoka Tano stands accused of murder and treason. We all know she's been framed but Anakin is the only Jedi who believes it. Tarkin and the Senate want her to have a civilian trial so they demand Ahsoka be kicked out of the Jedi Order.
We really can't explore the story any further without spoiling. Ahsoka is removed from the Order. While Padme stands in as public defender for Ahsoka, Anakin tracks down Asajj Ventress, Ahsoka's accused accomplice, to learn the truth. Asajj argues for her own innocence and implicates another: Barriss Offee, Ahsoka's confidant within the Order. Anakin confronts Barriss. They duel. Barriss is brought before the court just at the moment of verdict and confesses all, her speech an impassioned accusation of the Jedi, blaming them, not the Separatists, for the war. This is not the first time we've heard this asserition but it is the first time we've heard it from a Jedi. Nonetheless, Ahsoka is vindicated. Perry Mason couldn't have planned it any better.
But wait, there's more. Here's where things really get interesting. The Jedi Council apologizes to Ahsoka for doubting her and welcome her back to the Order. Instead of rushing back to their welcoming embrace, she walks away.
She walks away! Her faith in herself and her faith in the Jedi have been shaken. While she is clearly sad to leave, she sees that her way lies along a different path. Now, more than ever, it is becoming increasingly clear that The Clone Wars has been largely Ahsoka's story all along, not Anakin's.

The London stage beckoned. Curry got his first full-time role in the London production of Hair but it was his second gig that set him on the path to international superstar. Fair or not, Curry will always be best associated with his most famous role: Dr. Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He performed the part in London and Los Angeles productions before landing the screen gig. Frank doesn't merely steal the show in Rocky Horror, the world's greatest of all cult films. He is the show.
His stage and screen credits since are numerous. Movies include Annie, Clue and Legend. He has done extensive voice work, too, with roles in Fern Gully, Peter Pan & The Pirates, for which he won a Daytime Emmy as Captain Hook, and The Wild Thornberrys. Between 1978 and 1981, he also recorded three albums with A&M. His single "I Do the Rock", co-written with Michael Kamen, even reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart. I'll let you judge for yourself...
Next week: "The Unknown." This Thursday, we'll be recapping Season Five.
