As she says of Anakin's assessment that she's in over her head, ''"Says the peacekeeper, who fails to keep the peace."'' She seems to like Ahsoka though, possibly because Ahsoka's desire to help even if it delays their mission is much more in keeping with what most think the Jedi are meant to be rather than military generals.

After the Republic lost contact with a medical center above Felucia, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka are sent to investigate. Soon they discover that the center was destroyed by the Separatists and they fall under attack from Vulture droids left behind as patrol units. The Jedi's ship is shot down and they're forced to crash-land on Felucia.
