Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars S4E20 "Bounty"

Who we are never changes, who we think we are does.

After the destruction of the Nightsisters clan, Asajj Ventress travels around the Galaxy, until she eventually arrives to Tatooine. After killing a Bounty Hunter, she agrees to fill in his place in the group he belonged to, in order to finish a job.


  • Drowning My Sorrows: Arriving on Tatooine, Ventress goes straight to a bar, where she orders a short drink, gulps in down at once, and immediately orders another.
  • Join or Die: A variation: Bossk and Latts Razzi basically tell Ventress if she doesn't take Oked's place on the job, they'll hand her over to the authorities for killing him. Needing the money, Ventress doesn't have any problem going along with it.
  • Not So Different: Ventress, after hearing Pluma Sodi's story, comes to realise that the girl's predicament is very similar to hers.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Kage warriors when Ventress pulls out her lightsabers and reduces their knives to scrap metal.
  • Space Elevator: Quarzite has one, as due to its high-pressure atmosphere, it's impossible to land on it with spacecrafts. But then how did they build the elevator in the first place?
  • Standalone Episode: The episode has little plot relevance, and focuses on Ventress' development as a character.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Zigzagged. While Ventress has nothing but contempt for Boba Fett on account of his youth, she works quite well with the other bounty hunters.
  • Tempting Fate: This exchange:
    Krismo Sodi: I've come for what's mine.
    Major Rigosso: Over my dead body... [Krismo impales him in the chest with a thrown dagger]
  • Too Dumb to Live: Oked, the bounty hunter who tries to hit on Ventress and won't take the hint she's not interested. Ventress has to drive the point home with a lightsaber.
  • Train Job: The Kage warriors try one in order to free Pluma from her captors.
