Season 2 Episode 6

“No gift is more precious than trust.”


Anakin, Ahsoka, Luminara Unduli and her Padawan, Barriss Offee, lead a mission to destroy a droid factory on Geonosis. But Poggle the Lesser has other plans as he deploys his newest weapon, the indestructible super tanks.

Desperate to accomplish their mission before the foundry comes online, the Jedi devise a daring plan in which Anakin and Luminara will act as decoys, diverting the super tanks, while Ahsoka and Barriss infiltrate the plant via a labyrinth of catacombs beneath the city. The plan is risky. The stakes are high. It’s their only option, but are the Padawans up to the challenge?

Concept Art and Trivia

Though their names are not spoken in this episode, two of Luminara Unduli’s clone troopers are Buzz and Draa. In the script, Draa is given the line, “Buckle your belts and check your cells, soldiers. We’re going in.”

The nose-art on Luminara’s gunship has a clone trooper quite literally giving Count Dooku the boot.


The dialogue spoken by Anakin and Ahsoka during the briefing but barely heard underneath lines spoken by the approaching Barriss and Luminara are (Ahsoka) “Did you listen to what I was saying? I was saying the same things you were saying.” (Anakin) “Yeah, but when I say it they actually listen to me.”

TX-21 has bug-like markings on his armored skin, fitting his role as a Geonosian tactical advisor.
