The Clone Wars (2008) - Episode Guide

 (Edited)

Hey all, this is basically my first post here, however I have seen and been inspired by all the great work on Original Trilogy for a long time. This is a guide for what to watch of Clone Wars if you are short on time (or just don’t want to watch a bunch of filler). Aside from adding in the Mortis Arc and getting rid of the movie, the guide for seasons 1-5 was not done by me, however I cannot credit them as I do not know who they are. Whoever you are, thanks a bunch!

(feedback would be appreciated)

Awesome! Thanks for the compliment. I agree that maybe the bad batch arc isn’t quite as important as the siege of Mandalore, but the reason I included it was mainly because the reveal that Echo was alive was really cool to me. Also, I had been searching for a guide of what to watch in rebels, and I’ll definitely have to take a look at yours. Thanks again! 🙂

Thanks for sharing. I’ve only seen season one so far but that’s fair. I also thought Hidden Enemy was a good combination of the best elements: Clones and Asajj Ventress. It was also worth skipping anything that begins with the narration “Representative Binks…”

True. Again, I didn’t make the 1-5 guide, but if I did, I might not even include that because of how, even though lots of the episodes excluded are good, part of what this guide is about is being picky with what you watch so that it doesn’t take as long. Also don’t get me started on Jar Jar stuff. In season six there’s a weird arc I left out where we learn about Jar Jar’s love interest who is abducted by a cult and almost sacrificed. Yay. Fun.

Also, Ahsoka’s Walkabout/Martez Sisters arc takes place before The Bad Batch arc. When Ahsoka and the Martez Sisters leave Coruscant, Anakin and Ahsoka connect through the Force. This is before Anakin leaves for the Outer Rim for about six months (leading up to Revenge of the Sith).

The Bad Batch is set during those Outer Rim conflicts while Anakin is unable to return to Coruscant.

The Siege of Mandalore and Revenge of the Sith feature his return to Coruscant during the battle featuring Palpatine’s kidnapping.

And lastly, The Bad Batch arc is essential viewing with the new series coming out next year.

I did include bad batch as essential viewing. Also, With the way this guide is set up, It would be a bit confusing to put the Martez sisters before the Bad Batch. Even if I could do it in a way that worked I probably wouldn’t. The creators of Clone wars season 7 didn’t make it in perfect chronological order for a reason. I think the Bad Batch arc is a better intro to the season than if we were to start with Ahsoka and the Martez sisters. Also, I find it interesting to cut to ahsoka in a very different situation, contrasting life in the Jedi order and life not in the Jedi order. I don’t really get what you’re trying to say with the second part of your post. I am aware that The Siege of Mandalore and Revenge of the Sith feature Anakin’s return to Coruscant during the battle featuring Palpatine’s kidnapping. If you wanted me to change the guide to fit that, the problem is, there is only so much you can put in those paragraphs. I did try to address the fact that the siege of Mandalore ties into ROTS.

It’s not perfect chronological order because they wanted the season to restart with action, to have an exciting premiere. It wasn’t as strict of a narrative choice when you’re talking about the series as a whole.

I was just trying to give a timeline and show where those final episodes take place. Ahsoka’s Walkabout/Martez Sisters takes place a bit more than 6mo before ROTS, as Anakin is leaving, Bad Batch takes place maybe a month or so later when Anakin is gone, and then Siege and ROTS are when he returns to the surprise pregnancy.

It’s mainly to help that narrative when doing a big rewatch of everything in order that it makes sense to move them around. If this is a shortcut of episodes to get the general gist of the series but not watch all 7 seasons between AOTC and ROTS, I feel like those episodes in chronological order might help more.

That makes sense, thanks!😀
