Here we are, Season 6: The Lost Missions. The last remaining episodes of the Clone Wars initial run after Cartoon Network dropped the series. Or maybe it was Disney hungrily grasped all the loose Star Wars projects and clung them to their chest, y’know what business is like.
I’m not entirely sure what to expect from these episodes. With Ahsoka leaving the series during the finale of Season 5, it kind of feels like her departure really would put an end to the series. And yet there was another entire series planned without her. It makes me wonder if this was going to be the last one before it tied back into the beginning of Revenge of the Sith.
This week, we reach the conclusion of our story on Umbara, the 501st continues to contend with the local resistance who seem to be only a little less deadly than their own substitute commander, the Jedi Master Pong Krell: a Jedi with an utter disdain for clones. We jump right back in as the platoon have managed to capture a vital airbase in the invasion of the Shadow World.
Season 3 seems to be the part of the series where the writers began to get more creative with the continuity of their series, as they started to tell belated sequels and prequels to episodes from earlier in the show. The episodes I’m covering here both connecting to episodes from the first season. One showing the return of Fives and Echo, while the other coming back to the blue skinned race of Pantorans, who are unfortunately not the Chiss.
Sometimes I forget to link this, but if you want to see the other parts of this series, then the link’s right here.
