->''The future has many paths choose wisely.''

Upon returning from a successful mission, the Jedi Council praises Ahsoka for the skill and courage she's shown. Anakin is sent away to stop a CivilWar, and Ahsoka is ordered to stay at the Temple, the Council requiring a full report of her mission. However, things change when Ahsoka begins to have visions of the future, visions that are showing her that Padmé Amidala is in grave danger...

!!Tropes:

* AirVentPassageway: Aurra Sing takes to the vents twice while attempting to assassinate Padmé.
* AnachronicOrder: This episode takes place '''after''' the Season 2 finale's Boba trilogy, but '''before''' the Season 1 finale, [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E22HostageCrisis "Hostage Crisis"]].
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: This is one of the few times when Ahsoka shows just how insecure of her own abilities she is, and how the overconfident and snippy personality is just a facade.
* CivilWar: Anakin is sent to deal with one on Balith.
* ColdSniper: Aurra Sing.
* ContinuityPorn: There were so many {{Continuity Nod}}s in this one episode that it certainly qualifies:
** In [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E6DownfallOfADroid "Downfall of a Droid"]], Anakin told Ahsoka that first hand experience is the best teacher. She tries to convince Anakin to let her go with him, by recounting it to him.
** Bannamu's picture from [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS2E11LightsaberLost "Lightsaber Lost"]] appeared in the library scene, when Ahsoka was looking over the profiles of various criminals.
** Ahsoka and Padmé play [[Film/ANewHope dejarik]], a chess-type board game. Afterward, Padmé recounts how insecure she felt early on during her reign as Queen, before she TookALevelInBadass.
** When Padmé's ship arrives on Alderaan, Leia's theme is played.
** The Alderaanian soldiers have helmets similar to those of the rebel soldiers in ''Film/ANewHope''.
** Alderaanian women are seen dressed in outfits and hairstyles reminiscent of Princess Leia's classic appearance.
** In her speech at the conference, Padmé recounts the events of [[Film/ThePhantomMenace the invasion of Naboo]], including the death of Qui-Gon Jinn.
** After Ahsoka foils her second attempt on Padmé's life, Aurra Sing recognizes her as the "brat who left her for dead" in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS2E22LethalTrackdown "Lethal Trackdown"]], and explained that she survived because Hondo Ohnaka rescued her.
* CoolBigSis: Padmé acts like this towards Ahsoka.
* DamselOutOfDistress: Continuing her role, Padmé is prepared for an assassination attempt.
* DesignatedGirlFight: After the Season 2 finale teased and trolled us with it, Ahsoka and Aurra finally get their own showdown. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It is awesome.]]
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Ahsoka's first visions of the assassination attempt come in the form of dreams.
* DreamWithinADream: On Padmé's ship, Ahsoka has a dream of herself being watched in her sleep, and awakened by Aurra Sing.
* {{Fanservice}}: There are a couple of inexuseable shots of Aurra's butt, and Ahsoka bending over while talking with Padmé on the balcony of the Alderaan castle.
* GunsAkimbo: At the end of the episode Aurra Sing uses two blaster pistols against Ahsoka, and injures her.
* LooseLips: Ziro, after Ahsoka lies to him that Aurra has confessed to being hired by him, accidentally blubbers out this line:
-->'''Ziro:''' She (Aurra) told you what? Impossible. I should've hired someone better. Oops ...
* NotQuiteDead: Aurra was presumed to have been killed when she crashed with ''Slave 1'' in "Lethal Trackdown". In this episode she's revealed to be very much alive.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Both Padmé's and Ahsoka's wounds.
* ShoutOut: The black markings around Aurra's eyes are very similar to the ones painted around the eyes of Daryl Hannah's character in ''Film/BladeRunner''.
* YouCannotKillAnIdea: Played with and invoked. Everyone assumes Aurra was hired for the assassination because someone wants to silence the peace activists. After the first failed attempt, Padmé gives a speech about how futile it is, because even if they manage to "strike my voice down, a chorus of thousands shall rise up in its place". However, as it turns out, Aurra's employer has a much [[{{Revenge}} simpler reason]].
