Star Wars: The Clone Wars Couldn’t Have Had a Better Finale

Alexis Perez, Reporter

The final episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has arrived along with the previous 3 episodes, it could not have been a better finale. The first two-thirds of the season have been a little disappointing, but the last third of the season makes up for it tenfold. This season focuses heavily on one of the main characters of the season, Ahsoka Tano

The Bad Batch

The first 4 episodes of the season starts off with the Bad Batch arc. The Bad Batch are a group of clone soldiers who have positive mutations such as increased strength. The 4 episode arc is fun, with some intense action scenes, but it falls flat in some places, the new characters are a little basic and lack depth. However, the animation has improved in a major way since its cancellation in 2014. It’s a fun arc and a good reintroduction to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The Martez Sisters

This 4 episode arc is the weakest of the 3 in the final season. The idea that Ahsoka Tano questions her beliefs is interesting, it’s the execution of that idea that falters. The main plot feels as if it takes a backseat and it’s mostly about the two sisters. In this arc, two new characters are introduced, Rafa and Trace Martez. Although they are’t bad characters, they can appear to be a little annoying. The animation still is fantastic and the episodes are still entertaining.

The Siege of Mandalore

This is the final arc of the show and the events of this arc coincide with the events of one of the movies, namely Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. All 4 episodes in this arc are near perfect. The first 2 episodes start off with the siege of a planet called Mandalore and attempting to catch a criminal named Maul. The action in these two episodes are some of the best in the series. In the second episode there is a duel between Ahsoka and Maul, and it is one of the best duels in the show. The final 2 episodes of the show are by far some of the most emotional. The third episode shows us one of the major events of Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars in general, that being Order 66 and the entire Jedi Order which Ahsoka was once a part of being wiped out. The third episode starts off with somber music signaling what’s to come. Then, Order 66 is enacted and episode 3 and 4 show us Ahsoka escaping from the clone soldiers trying to kill her. After that, we get the final minutes of the season, which are the most emotional moments of the entire show. It is a perfect ending.
