Star Wars Hitchhikers Guide - Expanded Universe

.....A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away......
If you've never journied past the Trilogy or Prequelogy, here is your guide to the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Embracing the Dark Side or Living By The Jedi Code, the Expanded Universe has tales for the Jedi and Sith in every one. And truely learn the Skywalker history, this is my interpretation of the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Voyage of Temptation - Clone Wars Season 2 Episode 13

"Fear not for the future, weep not for the past."

A royal welcome! Sent to investigate allegations that Mandalore was joining Count Dooku's Separatists, Obi-Wan Kenobi was reunited with an old friend, the Duchess Satine of Kalevala. While Satine claimed Mandalore's intentions were to remain neutral during the war, an attack on the capital city led Obi-Wan to the discovery of a terrorist organization known as Death Watch.

Now the Duchess travels to the Senate, so she can plead her case against her involvement in the war, as the Jedi prepare a defense against her opponents...

As the Jedi and their clones defend Duchess Satine from assassination attempts, Anakin discovers that Obi-Wan and the Duchess have a history together.

This episode was awesome. So much tension, whether it be political or sexual between the Duchess and Obi-Wan. It is evident that Obi-Wan questions his decisions so young by the feelings he has and once had for the Dutchess. Anakin is Anakin in the pestering, harrasing, and saving of Obi-Wan. I don't know if it is intential or i'm just obsessive but Lucas is showing signs of Vader in Anakin in every few episodes, and I love it! It is very dominate thru the clone wars novels and its only right that it be shown in the television series. I've searched up and down for a clip of this scene but none have surfaced yet but here is how it came down in the show.

"Come on, then. Who will strike first and be branded a cold-blooded killer?" --- Tal Merrik to Obi-Wan and Satine, before being killed by Anakin Skywalker (lighsaber thru the chest).

"What? He was gonna blow up the ship." --- Anakin Skywalkers "casual" reaction to Obi-Wan Kenobi, shortly after killing Merrik

A little treat below, and you will see what I mean about the birth of Vader in the clone wars, from a previous episode, Brain Invaders.

"You are strong and wise, Anakin, and I am very proud of you. I have trained you since you were a small boy. I have taught you everything I know, and you have become a far greater Jedi than I could ever hope to be."
