Chronological TCW #44
"Citadel Rescue" Season 3, Episode 20
"Without honor, victory is hollow."
After their ship and only way off the planet is destroyed, Anakin and Obi-Wan must lead the escaped prisoners across Lola Sayu's perilous landscape as Plo Koon commands a task force of four cruisers and their fighters through the Separatist defenses in a daring rescue. Even Piell is ravaged by anooba tracking beasts, but before he dies, he passes on his Nexus Routes coordinates to Ahsoka. When the survivors return to Coruscant, Ahsoka knows half the intel, and refuses to disclose it to anyone but the Jedi Council, while Tarkinrefuses to hand over his half to anyone other than the Chancellor.
... Very solid episode. Right off the bat I'll say a continuity error. In this episode Even Piell dies, but he also dies in the post Order 66 book "Coruscant Nights: Book 1." Now its not that important since he serves basically no role in the book and dies in the first chapter, so it's a retcon, but not a big one. IMO his TCW death is more impactful and cool than the book death.
Great action all throughout the episode, as usual TCW doesn't fail to be visually pleasing to watch. And this episode also delivers on adding substance to characters and plot points. It was a heavily Ahsoka based episode showing her relationship with Piell, Tarkin, Skywalker, Koon, and some Kenobi. She got the spotlight as Piell was killed she got the second half to the Nexus Route coordinates.
Overall a very solid episode, clear A+, no issues save for the no-big-deal retcon, and visual very good as well as adding a lot to characters- mainly Ahsoka Tano.
