It feels like a million years ago I last talked about the Clone Wars. Although I suppose part of that comes from the sheer quantity of words I’ve had to produce in this month. Although it’s been nice to return to this series, and finish off this second part of the four-part storyline focusing on the Gerrera siblings and the liberation of Onderon.
Any sane person would probably take a break from this series for the remainder of December. Seeing as how I’ve got a ton of top ten entries to be writing. I couldn’t do that though, I’m on a roll of not missing one of these Clone Wars uploads for months, and I would be crazy to try and get out of it now.
Plus, with all these new Star Wars series getting announced, I’m becoming increasingly aware that I need to catch up to Rebels after finishing Clone Wars if I want to feel like I’m up to date on everything.
Anyway, we’re into season 5.
Season three ended on such a big cliff-hanger, I’m kind of shocked it took us to the final four episodes of season four to actually return to that story thread. These first two episodes begin the slow and surprising redemption of Asajj Ventress, something I never knew I really wanted until it started happening.
I’ve said before, I love a good redemption story. And this story is as ripe for pushing those buttons as a good guy turn could ever be.
