30 Best Clone Wars Episodes Ranked

Since its debut in 2008, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" has slowly become one of the most beloved entries in the ever-expanding "Star Wars" universe. However, this wasn't always the case, as the series was prematurely canceled back in 2013 after 6 seasons. Luckily, supervising director Dave Fillion's beloved show was brought back for a final season and aired on Disney+ to the delight of "Clone Wars" fans.

"The Clone Wars" took place between "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith." It gave the franchise an in-depth look at how the war was fundamentally changing the Jedi and provided more character development for the clones. Audiences were able to connect with certain troopers like Rex and Fives, making the clones' ultimate betrayal of the Jedi that much sadder. Once you watch "The Clone Wars," Order 66 becomes more of a tragedy. While the Skywalker Saga is truly the story of Anakin Skywalker, "The Clone Wars" is able to flesh out his character, as you're given a more charismatic view of the young Jedi. While giving Anakin the Padawan Ashoka Tano was initially met with resistance, she grew into one of the most celebrated "Star Wars" characters in the franchise, with her own series set to air soon. Though not all episodes were a hit, we've compiled the best "Clone Wars" episodes as ranked by audience reaction and the importance it holds on the story.

ARC Troopers (Season 3 Episode 2)

"ARC Troopers" acts as a sequel to the Season 1 episode "Rookies" where audiences are introduced to some of the main clone troopers of the show. In this episode, the clones' homeworld Kamino is under attack by the Separatists, with Asajj Ventress trying to steal Jango Fett's DNA — as his sample is used for the clones' DNA.

Captain Rex, who served as second-in-command to Anakin, and Captain Cody, who was second for Obi-Wan Kenobi, took notice of Fives and Echo's bravery during this attack. Promoting them to ARC Troopers and allowing the adventures of these clones to continue until the final season. This episode also outlined the cost this war had on the clones. While they were created for battle, it was sad to watch as their brothers died one after another in a war that was ultimately a chess game played by the Emperor. Special shout out to the Clone 99, as his death hit hard in this episode.

Lair of Grievous (Season 1 Episode 10)

"Lair of Grievous" moves the focus away from our main characters and instead looks at Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his former apprentice Nahdar Vebb as they accidentally stumble upon the lair of General Grievous. In "Revenge of the Sith," Grievous was meant to be a formidable enemy. His collection of lightsabers proved that he had killed many Jedi during this war, and could only be stopped by the likes of the great Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, the film never quite hit on his supposed villainous presence. Luckily, this episode truly made the character seem menacing, if only for a short while.

What makes the "Lair of Grievous" important was that it gave audiences the first glimpse that something was wrong with the Jedi, and that they were beginning to lose their way in this battle. This is made clear with Nahdar Vebb, as he's quick to jump into action to take revenge on Grievous for all the death he's responsible for. Sadly, he forgets that revenge is not the Jedi way, instead, Jedi are meant to be keepers of the peace. However, as war is all Vebb has ever known, he doesn't see being a Jedi as being a peacekeeper.

Holocron Heist (Season 2 Episode 1)

"Holocron Heist" deserves a spot on the list because of the character Cad Bane alone. He's the franchise's greatest bounty hunter introduced thus far, aside from perhaps Boba Fett. This episode is a fun heist story with a "Star Wars" twist. Cade Bane has been given the impossible task of breaking into the Jedi Temple to steal a Holocron, a job that most believe to be impossible. However, anything is possible for Bane at the right price.

The episode sees Anakin, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan running around the Temple in an attempt to stop Bane. What makes the heist so fun is that audiences are able to watch the story from both Bane and the Jedi's perspectives. There are even points along the way where you may find yourself rooting for Bane to succeed as he's such an engaging character. By the end of the episode, a larger story has been laid out, and audiences see that Darth Sidious wants to use the Holocron to access all the force-sensitive children in the galaxy.

The Zillo Beast Strikes Back (Season 2 Episode 19)

This episode acts as the second part of the Zillo beast story arc. "The Zillo Beast Strikes Back" brings the monster universe into the forefront. If "King Kong" and "Star Wars" came together and had a baby, it would be this episode.

After Anakin and Mace Windu bring the Zillo beast to Coruscant on Chancellor Palpatine's orders, the creature breaks out of his chains and wreaks havoc throughout the city. The Zillo beast knows that Palpatine is to blame for his incarceration, and does all he can to try and find him. The Jedi must now protect Palpatine from the creature's advances while also keeping the city safe from the destruction it's causing. This episode is interesting as audiences see Palpatine's true nature bleeding through his disguise. Instead of the kind and friendly Chancellor, we now see the cold and evil Darth Sidious. When he looks at the beast, he sees power, which is ultimately all Sidious has ever cared about

Wookiee Hunt (Season 3 Episode 22)

"Wookiee Hunt" is an important episode for two major reasons. The first is that audiences get to reunite with the magnificent Chewbacca, and the second is that the events from this episode are a major arc in Ahsoka's development.

Ahsoka has been stolen by Trandoshan hunters and placed on a deserted planet to be hunted for sport. She and the other stolen Padawans devise a plan of escape, as she refuses to accept surrender. By the end of the episode, Ahsoka defeats her most formidable foe yet, the Trandoshan leader Garnac, showing that she's becoming a powerful Jedi. It's clear that Ahsoka develops natural leadership skills, and is proud of the training she's received from Anakin. Once rescued she thanks him for all he's done for her, stating that she never would have survived without his training. The episode ends with Master Yoda watching the two reunite with a new sense of understanding and respect for each other.

Escape from Kadavo (Season 4 Episode 13)

"Escape from Kadavo" has a lot going on; Ahsoka is imprisoned, Obi-Wan and Rex are being forced to work in the Kadavo prison facility, and Anakin is fighting against Dooku without a lightsaber. Our favorite Jedi crew of three were tasked with finding and saving the people of Togruta, and while Obi-Wan and Rex succeed in finding them, they were captured and placed in prison right alongside them. The facility warden took a special interest in Obi-Wan, hoping that he would break his Jedi spirit.

By the end of the episode, the Togruta people are rescued and the Kadavo prison facility destroyed. While Obi-Wan, ever the Jedi, does not get his revenge on the facility warden, he steps aside to let Rex do so in his place. The death of the warden alone makes this episode great. However, it is important to mention that this episode is used to call out how the slave empire has been able to grow under the Jedi's nose, as they're too busy with the war to care about anything else anymore.

Tipping Points (Season 5 Episode 5)

"Tipping Points" is another episode that acts as an important arc in Ahsoka's character development, but this story arc also introduces audiences to the character Saw Gerrera, someone who would be featured in other "Star Wars" properties, such as "Rogue One" and "Rebels."

The episode takes place on the planet Onderon, as Ahsoka and Rex advise a group of rebels native to the planet. They are trying to free their people from Separatist control and have asked the Jedi for their guidance as they cannot officially get involved unless the planet is under Republic control. One of the rebels is a friend of Ahsoka's, someone with whom she's had a romantic encounter from time to time. Audiences watch as Ashoka is able to put her personal feelings aside, something that Anakin has never been able to do. Plus, fan-favorite, legendary pirate Hondo makes an appearance! He helps to bring supplies to the planet in order to assist for their cause against the Separatists, for a price, of course.

The Box (Season 4 Episode 17)

"The Box" is the third part of a story arc that sees Obi-Wan fake his death to go undercover as a bounty hunter. The plan is to have him unravel a plot to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine. This episode is a fun twist for audiences as Obi-Wan is tasked with various situations that he must overcome in order to complete his mission. His task becomes even more difficult when he enters a training simulation box, where only the surviving bounty hunters will move forward with the plan to kidnap Palpatine.

Obi-Wan must navigate the pressure of the box, try to keep the other bounty hunters alive, trick Dooku (who's come to watch the progress of the box), and maintain his cover. Aside from all that, audiences see how angry Anakin is over the death of Obi-Wan. Once he learns the truth of the council's deception, it further amplifies his mistrust in the Jedi.

Voyage of Temptation (Season 2 Episode 13)

Mandalorians go through many changes throughout "Star Wars." When Mandalore was first introduced in "The Clone Wars," audiences met the Dutchess Satine as the leader of the pacifist world. They want nothing to do with the war between the Republic and the Separatists, and while Satine doesn't condone violence, she holds a special place in her heart for Obi-Wan, as the two were once in love. Obi-Wan even admits that he would have left the Jedi Order for her.

In "Voyage of Temptation" Obi-Wan is tasked with keeping Satine safe from a potential Separatist assassination attempt. They soon uncover that Senator Tal Merrik from Kalevala is a traitor. He takes Satine hostage but she manages to steal his blaster, and aims the gun at Merrik while Obi-Wan watches. Merrik outlines that they're in a no-win situation, stating if Satine kills him she'll betray her pacifist beliefs, and if Obi-Wan kills him, he will lose Satine's respect. Merrik then asks, "Who will brand themselves a cold blood killer?" Unfortunately for him, Anakin answers by stabbing Merrik from behind with his lightsaber, with Darth Vader's theme music playing gently in the background. He looks at Obi-Wan and Satine happily while Obi-Wan sadly says "Anakin."

Citadel Rescue (Season 3 Episode 20)

"Citadel Rescue" is the third and final episode in the Citadel story arc. The arc sees Anakin lead his team on a rescue mission to infiltrate the Citadel on a Separatist planet. Anakin and Obi-Wan learn that Jedi Master Piell has been taken captive and tortured to give up coordinates of the hyperspace route between the Republic and Separatists.

This episode is important as it brings together all the clones audiences have come to recognize: Rex, Cody, Fives, and Echo. It also introduces Tarkin into the "Clone Wars," a character that audiences should recognize from the original film, "A New Hope." Tarkin discusses his displeasure with how the Jedi are running the war, and while Ahsoka and Obi-Wan disagree and dislike him, Anakin and Tarkin begin to form a mutual respect for one another, especially when they realize that they are both close with Palpatine. This becomes clear when the team returns to Coruscant with the coordinates, with Tarkin insisting that he deliver them directly to Palpatine over the Jedi Council. The episode ends with Tarkin admiring Anakin's work and Anakin admitting that the war could use more minds like Tarkin's. Looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

The General (Season 4 Episode 8)

We think it's safe to say that there has never been a more hated character in the "Star Wars" franchise than General Jedi Master Pong Krell. He was, for lack of better words, just the worst. Krell was first introduced as a no-nonsense General, who would seemingly do whatever it took to secure the Umbaran capital city against local militia forces. However, as this story arc continued, it became clear what low regard he had for the clones, preferring to call them by their numbers over their names.

"The General" is an intriguing story because it questions the very nature of the clones. They were made to serve, but at what cost? How far must a good soldier go to follow orders? This is something that Rex struggles with above all else, as it's his job to carry out his General's orders, but he's also loyal to the safety of the clones, who he sees as brothers. At the end of the episode, Rex and Fives discuss how Krell is unable to see what the cost of his orders has on the lives of the clones, questioning if he even cares.

Brain Invaders (Season 2 Episode 8)

Ahsoka and her Padawan friend Barriss Offee are transporting medical supplies to Mace Windu with a team of clone troopers. They had just returned from a mission on Geonosis where, unbeknownst to them, a brain worm has hatched from an egg and entered the nose of one of the troopers. Once the worm takes over the brain, the trooper is completely under its control.

As the episode continues, Ahsoka and Barriss find themselves trapped on a ship of clones that have all been turned by these worms. The clones begin hunting the young Padawans to get them under the worm's control. "Brain Invaders" is incredibly stressful and hints at what's to come with Order 66 when the clones are all forced to turn on their Jedi. Simultaneously, Anakin knows that his Padawan is in danger and tortures his prisoner from Geonosis, Poggle, with a force choke to get the information he needs to help Ahsoka survive.

To Catch a Jedi (Season 5 Episode 19)

"To Catch a Jedi" is the follow-up to "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much," where Ahsoka has been wrongly accused of bombing the Jedi hangar deck. This episode sees Ahsoka evading capture by hiding out in the underworld of Coruscant. While the Jedi firmly believe in Ahsoka's guilt, Anakin and Jedi Master Po Kloon disagree, resulting in them taking the lead on bringing Ahsoka in as peacefully as they can.

During her time on the run, Ahsoka sees how the people of Coruscant have begun to lose faith in the Jedi, noting that they're so consumed with the war they've forgotten their purpose. She comes across an unlikely ally when she meets now bounty hunter, Asajj Ventress, who agrees to help clear her name. Unfortunately for Ahsoka, her alliance with Ventress only makes her look more guilty, and Anakin has no choice but to bring her in to face trial. What makes this episode so engaging is the mystery behind who bombed the deck. It also made audiences fear Ahsoka's fate, because, while she became a fan favorite, she was never seen or mentioned in "Revenge of the Sith." Because the film takes place after the events of the show there was a growing concern on whether Ahsoka would survive the clone wars.

Overlords (Season 3 Episode 15)

"Overlords" is the beginning of a story arc that brings the "Star Wars" prophecy of Anakin being the "Chosen One" to the forefront. Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka are all pulled into another dimension where they meet Father, Daughter, and Son. Daughter represents the light side of the force, Son the dark, and Father the balance that keeps them in check. Father tests Anakin to see if he's truly the "Chosen One" hoping that Anakin will replace him as the balance between his two children.

This story arc is one of the most celebrated in "The Clone Wars" as it hints towards Anakin's destiny. Obi-Wan is visited by his old master Qui-Gon Jinn (voiced by Liam Neeson himself) who warns him that the planet may corrupt Anakin if he is unable to attain balance within his soul. During his trial, Anakin is forced to choose between saving Ahsoka from Daughter or Obi-Wan from Son. Anakin exhibits supreme strength and taps into the Force of the planet to stop both children from hurting either. He chooses to leave with Ahsoka and Obi-Wan, and the episode ends with the music of the Imperial March playing in the distance as he walks away.

Monster (Season 3 Episode 15)

"Monster" was an exciting episode in "The Clone Wars" as it connects Asajj Ventress with Darth Maul, showing that they are both from the planet Dathomir. Betrayed by Dooku's attempt on her life, Ventress returns home to her Nightsisters, a group of witches who are strong with the Force. Their leader, Mother Talzin helps Ventress take revenge on Dooku, by tricking him into allowing her to provide a new assassin to replace Ventress. As Dooku believes her to be dead, he takes her up on the offer.

Ventress selects Savage Opress, a tragic character with a truly awful name. Mother Talzin transforms him into a killing machine loyal to them. They force him to kill his brother without even flinching. This is especially sad, as before Mother Talzin used her magic to transform Savage, he clearly loved his brother and wanted to keep him safe. Mother Talzin took his free will away. Once he's delivered to Dooku, he's impressed with Savage's display of power, telling him that together they'll overthrow the Sidious and rule the galaxy. Unfortunately for Dooku, Ventress has other plans.

Witches of the Mist (Season 3 Episode 14)

"Witches of the Mist" continues the adventures of Ventress and Savage, with Obi-Wan and Anakin hot on their trail. Audiences see as Dooku brutally trains Savage to unlock the Force within him. Dooku sends Savage on a mission, commanding that he return with the Toydarian King Katuunko alive. Unfortunately, Savage returns with the king dead, and Dooku reprimands him with Force lightning.

Ventress interrupts Dooku and reminds Savage who his true master is, and together, the two attack Dooku. Dooku easily deflects Savage's advances with Force lightning, causing both Dooku and Ventress to criticize Savage for being weak. Enraged, Savage force chokes them both but is interrupted by Anakin and Obi-Wan who have been tracking Savage the entire time. The episode ends with a confused and betrayed Savage returning home to Mother Talzin, unsure of what to do next. She assures him that his journey has just begun, saying he has another brother alive and that he must find him. She shows him the face of his brother as being none other than Maul, the phantom menace who was thought to be dead.

Massacre (Season 4 Episode 19)

Back on Dathomir, "Massacre" sees Dooku take his revenge against the Nightsisters after what Mother Talzin and Ventress did to him with Savage. He gives General Grievous the task of laying waste to the entire clan of Nightsisters.

While Dooku has revenge on his mind, Ventress has chosen to leave her past life of being a Sith behind her. Instead, she fully integrates herself back into her sisterhood. However, her moment of peace doesn't last long as Grievous attacks the Nightsisters with his droid forces. Not one to be bullied, Mother Talzin raises an army of the dead to fight against the droids, while also using voodoo to attack and kill Dooku from the comfort of his bed. Unfortunately, the droid forces prove to be too much and Grievous succeeds in eradicating the Nightsisters, leaving Ventress alone once more. Mother Talzin encourages her to find a new path, which is how she eventually ends up as a bounty hunter.

Shades of Reason (Season 5 Episode 15)

This story arc showcases Maul's rise to power within the crime syndicate. Understanding the political game he must play to avoid the Jedi and his old Master, he chooses to work behind the scenes to gain power. With the help of his brother, Savage Opress, Maul takes control over the crime families and aligns himself with Death Watch, a terrorist Mandalorian group against the pacifist ways of Duchess Satine.

"Shades of Reason" focuses on Mandalore as Maul colluded with Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla to turn the people of Mandalore against Satine. However, Maul confides in Savage that they need a puppet to rule over Mandalore, someone who they can control, unlike Vizsla. Once they select Almec, Maul challenges Vizsla to a duel, where he kills him and takes control over the Darksaber, essentially controlling Mandalore itself. This fractures Death Watch, with some refusing to swear loyalty to Maul and fleeing under the leadership of Bo Katan.

Sacrifice (Season 6 Episode 13)

For a time, "Sacrifice" acted as the series finale for "The Clone Wars" before its seventh season revival in 2020. Just as "The Clone Wars" started with a story arc surrounding Yoda, so did it end with one about Yoda, at least for a short time.

"Sacrifice" is an interesting tale because it ends with Yoda believing that the Republic will not win the clone wars, at least not in a literal sense. He finally understands that by taking part in the war the Jedi have already lost, but that there's a path unknown to the Sith that could turn the tides and lead to victory in the end. This is the episode that sees Yoda begin on his path of learning how a Jedi can exist beyond death. It's something that Qui-Gon Jinn learned, which is what allowed him to speak with Obi-Wan in "Overlords." Yoda receives visions of the future where he hears himself say, "There is another Skywalker." Looks like Yoda's planning the play the long game.

Fun fact, Mark Hamill lends his voice in this episode as the illusion of Darth Bane.

Revenge (Season 4 Episode 22)

Maul and Savage are back on the list, and this time it's due to Maul's obsession with getting revenge on Obi-Wan Kenobi. You see, while audiences thought that Obi-Wan killed Maul when he cut him in half in "The Phantom Menace," Maul actually survived, fueled by his hatred for Obi-Wan. "Revenge" sees their long-awaited reunion, and we adored every second of it.

The episode begins with Maul and Savage back on Dathomir, where Mother Talzin gives Maul new legs and helps clear his mental state — And the one thing he has on his mind is revenge. The two set a trap to gain Obi-Wan's attention. However, it also attracts the attention of Ventress, who decides to bring Savage in for a bounty. This ends up with Obi-Wan teaming up with Ventress (and using one of her red lightsabers) against Maul and Savage. While Obi-Wan and Maul fight, it's clear that Maul seems to be the only one to get an emotional response out of him. When he mentions how he killed Qui-Gon, audiences can see a bubble of anger rise out of Obi-Wan during their duel. And you know what Yoda says: "Anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering."

Revival (Season 5 Episode 1)

After Maul and Obi-Wan's fight in "Revenge," Maul comes up with a plan to bring the two together once more. In another sad twist of fate for Savage, Maul enacts the Sith rule of two on him, stating that there's always one Master and one Apprentice, arguing that Savage is the ladder. Savage hoped that they could be equal as brothers, but Maul makes it clear that it's his way or the highway.

Maul and Savage come across Hondo's pirate organization and bribe some of Hondo's men to work for them instead. Eventually, Obi-Wan and Jedi Adi Gallia arrive at Hondo's base and fight the two brothers. Savage kills Adi, leaving Obi-Wan to fight the two on his own. While this is all going down, Hondo hilariously brings his men back to his side and works with Obi-Wan to take Maul and Savage down. Injured, the brothers leave the planet, with Maul swearing his revenge. Unfortunately for him, Obi-Wan reports to Chancellor Palpatine that Maul is alive. This causes Palpatine to smirk at the camera upon hearing the news that his old apprentice lives and has a new apprentice in Savage. There can only be two, after all.

The Wrong Jedi (Season 5 Episode 20)

"The Wrong Jedi" takes place after "To Catch a Jedi." Ahsoka has been brought to the Jedi Council to stand trial as they still believe that she bombed the hangar deck in their Temple. Tarkin demands that Ahsoka be expelled from the Jedi Order so that she may be given a military tribunal held by the Republic. Against Obi-Wan's suggestions, the Jedi agree, and Ahsoka is stripped of her Padawan status.

While Padme defends Ahsoka at trial, Anakin tries to find Ventress to help clear Ahsoka's name. Once he does, she lets him know that Ahsoka contacted her friend and fellow Padawan Barriss while she was on the run, stating that after their conversation someone attacked her and stole her double red lightsabers. Anakin goes to confront Barriss who he discovers has the red lightsabers. They fight and he easily defeats her, bringing her to Ahsoka's trial. Barriss admits what she does, claiming that the Jedi have lost their way in this war, a sentiment that is detailed in many episodes on this list. Once Ahsoka's name is clear, the Jedi try to convince her to return as a Padawan, but Ahsoka realizes that after everything they've put her through, she no longer wants to return. That perhaps Barriss was right, the Jedi have lost their way. Anakin tells Ahsoka that he also struggles with the Order, resulting in her telling him, "I know" before walking away.

Carnage of Krell (Season 4 Episode 10)

Returning back to the story arc on the planet Umbara, the clones are faced with a serious problem: Jedi Master Krell. Krell commands the clone troopers to execute Fives and Jesse for disobeying his orders. However, the men find that they can not comply with his orders and refuse to kill them.

Things continue to head downhill as Krell informs the troopers that a disguised group of Umbarans dressed as clones may attack, arguing that the clones should be on the lookout. Once the attack begins Rex learns that they've been deceived by Krell. The disguised Umbarans were really just fellow clone troopers, and they've been firing and killing each other. Distraught, they pursue and arrest Krell, asking him why he betrayed them. He reveals that he's foreseen a new rise of power in the galaxy and that he's abandoned his Jedi principles in hopes of gaining power. He admits to sabotaging the Republic's war efforts because he knows that the war is meaningless. As Rex prepares to execute Krell, he finds that he can't murder a Jedi, resulting in clone trooper Dogma doing so instead. See you later, Krell. As one of the worst "Clone Wars" characters, we can't say that we'll miss you.

Orders (Season 6 Episode 4)

Clone trooper Fives has been through a lot throughout the series. However, his ending is a tragedy, as he uncovered and almost revealed the Emperor's entire plan before being killed. Fives discovers that all the clone troopers have been given an inhibitor chip that will be used to turn the clones against the Jedi. Once he discovers this plot, he's brought face to face with the Chancellor himself to discuss his concerns. Unfortunately for him, the Chancellor doesn't want this information getting out and tells everyone that Fives attacked him, turning Fives into public enemy number one.

Running through the streets of Coruscant with no one else to turn to, he meets with Anakin and Rex as he believes they're the only people he can trust. He tells them that the Chancellor is in on a plot against the Jedi, but is sadly shot before he can provide more details. As he dies in Rex's arms, he says that the conspiracy is bigger than any of them and that he only wanted to do his duty. Rex is devastated because he's lost the last of his friends from the first season of the show. RIP Fives, you deserved better.

The Lawless (Season 5 Episode 16)

"The Lawless" had a lot of action for one episode. With Maul and Savage taking control over Mandalore, Obi-Wan heads to the planet in order to save Satine. Unfortunately, Maul captures them as they try to escape and murders Satine in front of Obi-Wan. Before she dies, she tells Obi-Wan that she always loved him and always will.

Obi-Wan is later rescued by Satine's sister and Death Watch loyalist Bo-Katan, who wants Maul dead for murdering her leader Pre Vizsla in "Shades of Reason." Meanwhile, on Coruscant, Sidious feels a disturbance in the Force and travels to Mandalore to confront Maul. He fights the two brothers, killing Savage and taking Maul captive as he sadly looks at his brother's dead body. The Emperor reminds Maul of the Rule of Two, stating that he's been replaced by Dooku. And while he will not show mercy, as that is not the way of the Sith, he won't kill Maul, stating that he may be useful down the line.

Ghost of Mortis (Season 3 Episode 17)

Heading back to the story about Father, Daughter, and Son, "Ghost of Mortis" has Anakin face his biggest battle yet, the truth about his future. While Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Anakin are trying to leave the Force realm Mortis, Son confronts Anakin and shows him what his future holds, ending with Anakin hearing Darth Vader.

Anakin is overcome by anguish when learning what he becomes. Son says that together, they can change his fate, and Anakin decides to join him. Once Obi-Wan sees that Anakin has been corrupted by Son, he turns to Father, who uses his powers to erase Anakin's memory of what Son showed him. With Daughter being killed by Son, Father kills himself to stripe Son from his connection to the Force. While Son holds dying Father, Anakin runs him through with his lightsaber, killing him. With Father's dying breath he tells Anakin that he is the "Chosen One" as he has brought balance to the Force on Mortis and that he will be called on to do so again in the future.

Old Friends Not Forgotten (Season 7 Episode 9)

Season 7 of "The Clone Wars" was arguably one of the greatest moments in "Star Wars" history. "Old Friends Not Forgotten" sees Ahsoka reunite with Anakin and Obi-Wan after leaving the Jedi Order in "The Wrong Jedi." She and Bo-Katan have come for the Jedi's help in order to remove Maul from Mandalore, as he's escaped Darth Sidious and returned to his criminal ways once more. Anakin hopes that things will go back to the way they were, but Ahsoka's experiences outside of the Jedi have taught her that the Jedi are fundamentally flawed. Believing that they've let the war consume them, they are quick to forget that they once served a galaxy of people in need.

As Ahsoka's no longer a Jedi, she cannot lead the clones to war, so Anakin promotes Rex to Commander and gives her his clone battalion to help Bo-Katan siege Mandalore. He gives Ahsoka her lightsabers again and they wish each other luck. This is the last time Ahsoka ever sees Anakin before facing him years later as Vader. The rest of the episode sees the beginning of the siege of Mandalore with Ahsoka coming face to face with Maul in the end.

The Phantom Apprentice (Season 7 Episode 10)

Running parallel to the events in "Revenge of the Sith," Ahsoka and Maul have a talk where he tells her that the war will soon be over and that his Master will control the galaxy with both the Jedi and the Republic falling, as it was all a part of the plan.

Ahsoka soon learns that Maul has been distracted by visions of the name Skywalker making her worry about her old Master. She and Maul talk where he expresses his admiration for her leaving the Jedi Order. He tells her that the Sith is about to take control and that the time of the Jedi is over, arguing that only together can they stop Sidious. With an arm outstretched, Maul tells her that every choice in her life has led her to this moment. Ahsoka tells Maul that she will help him, on the condition he tell her what he wants with Anakin. Maul informs her that Anakin has long since been groomed to take his place as his Master's new apprentice. Unwilling to believe this Ahsoka calls him a liar and the two engage in one of the greatest lightsaber duels of the series, resulting in her beating and capturing Maul.

Shattered (Season 7 Episode 11)

Picking up where "The Phantom Apprentice" left off, Ahsoka, Rex, and her clone battalion are traveling to bring an imprisoned Maul to the Jedi Council. Right off the bat, the episode has a sense of unease, especially as the audience knows where we are in the story of "Revenge of the Sith," Anakin is about to betray the Jedi and pledge his loyalty to Sidious. Order 66 is almost upon us.

Both Ashoka and Maul can feel when Anakin turns to the Dark Side, with echoes of the film playing in the distance. Then, Rex receives a communication saying, "Execute Order 66." All of the clones turn against Ahsoka, but Rex is able to fight it for a moment, allowing Ahsoka time to escape. She releases Maul and encourages him to wreak havoc aboard the ship, hoping that this will distract the clones long enough for her to figure out what's happened. As he does not have a lightsaber, Maul uses the Force to kill any clone that crosses his path as he slowly walks towards the hanger deck and his freedom. While Ahsoka is on the run from her troopers, she finds Rex's report on Fives detailing that the clones have been programmed to turn against the Jedi. She captures Rex and removes his inhibitor chip. The episode ends with Rex telling Ahsoka that the Republic's entire army has been turned against the Jedi.

Victory and Death (Season 7 Episode 12)

"Victory and Death" is the final episode of the series. Maul has sabotaged the ship causing it to crash on a nearby planet. While Ahsoka and Rex try to escape on a shuttle, Maul highjacks it instead. Ahsoka uses the Force to bring the shuttle back but stops when she realizes that Rex needs her help as his fellow clones are firing on him. Luckily, Rex and Ahsoka are narrowly able to escape with the rest of the troopers dying in the crash.

The episode ends with Rex and Ahsoka looking at the buried bodies of the clones, with their helmets marking their graves. She drops the lightsabers that Anakin gave her, and she and Rex leave.

Sometime later, audiences see Imperial ships and Stormtroopers searching the wreckage, with Darth Vader himself on site. He finds Ahsoka's lightsabers in the snow and picks them up while looking to the sky and seeing a bird circle. The bird is a convor and it's something that has stayed with Ahsoka ever since her experience with Daughter in the "Overlords" story arc. Vader watches the bird knowingly for a moment and then walks off. The last shot of the series sees his reflection walking away in the distance from the dead clone's helmet. The clone war is over.
