Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars S4E8 "The General"

"The path of ignorance is guided by fear."

General Krell sends the 501st to conquer a fortified Umbaran base and refuses to listen to any tactical considerations.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Continuity Nod: Like Han Solo in A New Hope, Hardcase "prefers a straight fight to all this sneakin' around."
  • Gunship Rescue: Fives and Hardcase sneak into the base and commandeer two enemy fighters to take down the spider cannons, which none of the clones' weaponry can harm.
  • Walking Tank: The Umbaran caterpillar tanks and spider cannons.
