Upon arriving at the Separatist base, the Jedi discover more of the same: droid heads impaled on spears. Anakin and Rex, searching around, discover headless droids frozen in battle positions and large footprints. Investigating the droids' logs, Obi-Wan and Anakin discover a recording of a droid being attacked by a furry white creature, and that the droids seemed to be investigating the southern canyon. They go to investigate and discover the village of these aliens, called the Talz. Speaking with the chieftain, Thi-Sen, they learn that the Talz were attacked by the droids, and the Republic base was caught in the middle. The Jedi arrange a meeting between him and his council and Chairman Cho at the old Separatist base. When the Jedi return to base, Cho is incredulous to learn that Orto Plutonia is an inhabited planet, seeing the Talz as trespassers upon sovereign Pantoran territory. He makes several attempts to order the clone troopers to attack the Talz, which he doesn't have the authority to do. At the meeting, Cho refuses to listen to reason and demands that the Talz leave or it will be war. Thi-Sen, angered by Cho's demands, agrees. Obi-Wan and Anakin ask Senator Chuchi if there's any way to override what Cho has done, since he's declared the conflict an internal affair. She responds that the Speaker of the Assembly has the power, and they return to the base to see if they can make contact. Anakin orders Rex to protect the Chairman until the mess can be sorted out. The Talz ambush Cho's party on the way back, and he's injured when a Talz spear strikes him in the back. Rex and the surviving clones are forced to take a stand defending Cho when they're backed up against the edge of a cliff. Back at the base, the Jedi and Senator Chuchi managed to contact the Pantoran Assembly, and Chairman Cho's actions were ruled out of order. Chuchi is given the authority to negotiate peace. She asks Obi-Wan if he could negotiate in her place, but he tells her that since it's the Pantorans the Talz are at war with, she must do the negotiating. When the gunships arrive to reinforce the clones defending the injured Chairman Cho, he gives Senator Chuchi an order, as his final command as Chairman of Pantora: destroy the Talz. She tells him she can't do that, and he dies ranting that he died for his people, and that peace is impossible. Chuchi removes his hat, grabs a Talz spear, and asks C-3PO to come with her as translator. She walks across the battlefield, and Thi-Sen approaches her. With Threepio translating, Chuchi points out that dying for your people is a great sacrifice, as she plants the spear in the ground and places Cho's hat on top. She then points out that living for your people is an even greater sacrifice, and that's what she chooses. She asks Thi-Sen, what does he choose? He chooses to live as well, and plants his spear in the ground next to Chuchi's. Thus, peace is achieved between the Pantorans and the Talz. But, Obi-Wan tells Chuchi, the harder part is making it last.

The Republic, having lost contact with an outpost on the icy world of Orto Plutonia, send Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi to investigate. Accompanying them are dignitaries from the planet's inhabited moon of Pantora, Chairman Chi Cho and Senator Riyo Chuchi. Cho is quick and emphatic in pointing out that since Orto Plutonia is uninhabited, it's been claimed by Pantora as sovereign territory, and that he specifically requested that a base be located on the planet. Upon entering the base, the Republic forces discover a semicircle of clone helmets placed on spears, which Obi-Wan and Rex find puzzling. Cho, meanwhile, assumes it to be the Separatists. Clone scouts, meanwhile, have discovered a droid base on the far side of the ridge.

!!Tropes:

* AssInAmbassador: Cho, while not technically an ambassador, is extremely rude and demeaning to Thi-Sen.
* EmpathicEnvironment: There's a snowstorm going on for most of the episode, which ends the ''instant'' Senator Chuchi negotiates peace with Thi-Sen.
* DeadHatShot:
** The Talz place the helmets of the clone troopers and heads of the droids on spears, intended as a warning to not return.
** Later, Senator Chuchi places Chairman Cho's hat on a spear when negotiating with Thi-Sen.
* FamousLastWords: Courtesy of Chairman Cho:
-->"I died ... for our ... people."
* FantasticRacism: Cho, upon learning of the presence of the Talz, demeans them as "savages" and states they have no claim to the planet, despite it being pointed out that if they are sentient, then the Galactic Senate has jurisdiction.
* GeoEffects: The Talz's main advantage in ambushing the Republic forces is their extensive knowledge of the terrain.
* GrewASpine: Senator Chuchi is initially completely intimidated by Cho, but eventually stands up to him and gets the Pantoran Assembly to agree that his actions were out of order, being given the authority to negotiate a peace treaty with the Talz.
* InTheBack: Chairman Cho is fatally wounded when a Talz spear hits him in the back.
* InTheEndYouAreOnYourOwn: Obi-Wan tells Senator Chuchi that she must negotiate peace herself, because it's ''her'' people the Talz are at war with.
* LastRequest: Cho, knowing he's dying, orders Chuchi to destroy the Talz. She tells him she can't do that, as she's been given the authority to negotiate peace.
* RockBeatsLaser: The Talz, despite their primitive weaponry, managed to wipe out the personnel of both the Republic and Separatist bases, and inflict heavy losses on the troopers guarding Chairman Cho. However, they take losses of their own.
* SingleBiomePlanet: Orto Plutonia is an ice planet in the tradition of Hoth.
* SnowMeansDeath: For Chairman Cho, at any rate.
* TactfulTranslation: Averted -- Chairman Cho orders C-3PO to translate what he says ''exactly'' as he says it.
