Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Warning! On these recap pages all spoilers will be unmarked! Read at your own peril!

Recap page for the CG animated TV series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Due to the Anachronic Order of Season 1 and 2 and the Arc Welding in the first half of Season 3, not to mention the overarching storylines, interrupted by numerous Plot Threads and Rotating Arcs, itd be rather hard to see through the various plotlines and character motivations by just the episode recaps. For this reason, the story summaries of Arcs longer than two episodes should go to Arc recap pages. These Arc Recaps should contain:
  • The list of the episodes from the storyline, in chronological order.
  • The summary of the plot of the entire storyline (which also means that Episode Recaps should only contain a basic outline in a few sentences).
  • Tropes that are used in more than one episode of the storyline, or have an importance to the overall plot of the storyline (eg. in the case of a storyline about getting a MacGuffin, said MacGuffin should be added to the Arc Recap, instead of being listed on every Episode Recap page).
