Star Wars: The Clone Wars - On the Wings of Keeradaks television review

After completing their mission and rescuing Echo (Dee Bradley Baker), “On the Wings of Keeradaks” focuses on Anakin (Matt Lanter) and the Clones getting out of the Techno Union facility alive, getting back to the Poletec village, and then fighting off the Techno Union’s attempts to reacquire Echo. The episode is noticeably shorter than either of the two previous episodes, but once the escape from the facility begins the action moves a a good clip through the end of the episode. The Bad Batch continue to prove their work, and the Poletecs turn out to be strong allies against the Techno Union.

  • wiki: link

With tensions running high, Anakin (Matt Lanter) joins Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) and the Bad Batch on the mission to Skako Minor. They do find Echo (Baker) inside the tower hooked up to the machines as the former Clone Trooper does indeed appear to be the source of the Droids’ algorithm. A middle episode for the season’s opening arc, we get shoot-outs with droids, some odd aliens, and there are plenty of question left to be answered as the team still needs to find a way to get Echo, and themselves, off the planet. Besides the return of a character lost in the original Clone Wars run, “A Distant Echo” is notable for a call between Anakin and Padme (Catherine Taber), one that Obi-Wan (James Arnold Taylor) guesses correctly about suggesting he wasn’t as clueless about the pair’s relationship as it seemed in The Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Bad Batch television review

“The Bad Batch” catches up with Mace Windu (TC Carson) and Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) on the planet Anaxes where Clone forces are slowly being overtaken by the Droid Army. Believing the Droids have learned to counter Republic’s battlefield strategies, Commander Cody (Dee Bradley Baker) and Captain Rex (Baker) lead a commando unit of genetic mutated clones known as Clone Force 99 to learn more. Action is fast and furious here, and the mutated clones (each with certain advantages over “Regs”) offer a fun twist to the usual proceedings. Hoping to find and destroy an algorithm, what the troopers actually discover seems to point to Rex’s fears being true that Echo is alive and prisoner on Skako Minor where his knowledge is being used against the Clone army.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Downfall and Duel of Droids

R2-D2‘s importance both to Anakin (Matt Lanter) and the Republic is highlighted in this two-episode arc when Anakin’s trap for General Grievous (Matthew Wood) fails losing both his ship and his astromech droid. Given that R2 contains battle plans and strategies key to the entire sector it quickly becomes a race as to who can get their hands on the droid first. It also leaves the Rebel general vulnerable as his replacement droid turns out to be working for Grievous (something it takes everyone far too long to figure out) and continues to put the Jedi in harms way.
