Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars S2E11 "Lightsaber Lost"

"Easy isn't always simple."

While Anakin and Ahsoka are investigating the underbelly of Coruscant to try and get a lead on Cad Bane, a pickpocket steals Ahsoka's lightsaber. She wants to keep the loss secret from her mentor, so she goes to the library to try and track down the thief on her own. She ends up partnering with an elderly Master Jedi Sinube who has decades of experience with Coruscant's criminal underworld.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Incredibly Lame Pun: How we're introduced to the elderly Master Sinube. He learns that the pickpocket was from an aquatic world, and immediately realizes that Ahsoka sensed something fishy about him. Eh? Eh?
  • Pulling The Thread: Sinube realizes there's something odd about the tale of the young woman in Nack Movers's apartment, so begins probing to see what's going on.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: During the rooftop chase to recover her lightsaber, Ahsoka ends up in midair, clinging to the face of a huge billboard of Chancellor Palpatine denying that the Jedi started the Clone War in order to gain more power over the Republic. Obviously it's not true... but this is Palpatine we're talking about. Double triple reverse psychology and all that.
