I was initially really excited about this concept of these three episodes. Not only were they harkening back to one of the most popular moments from the original traditionally animated Clone War series, but it was a story set in a totally new and unfamiliar location within the Star Wars.
A story entirely set in an undersea city, with all the visual benefits and hindrances that come along with it.
After the previous couple of episodes, during which we got some pretty staggering revelations in regards to the wider Star Wars universe, this trio of episodes goes back to familiar territory for the series. Returning us to the kind of story that kicked the series off in the first place. That’s right, we’re back to the war.
Only this time, we’ve got a special surprise guest along for the ride.
I have a distinct memory of watching these episodes out of context with the rest of the series back when they came out. So much so that they activated another memory in my brain of a piece of fan fiction I wrote about some video game I was playing at the time directly inspired by the events of these episodes.
There’s a slim chance I could find those incredibly plagiarising writings, but I think it’s better if I not bother. For I feel the amount of cringing I would do would cause me to turn into a singularity and consume the Earth. And none of us want that.
