** Anakin's uncharacteristic overprotectiveness towards Ahsoka isn't all that surprising once you remember what happened to her in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS3E16AltarOfMortis "Altar of Mortis"]] two episodes earlier.
** After Echo got new Phase II armour for being promoted to ARC trooper, he painted Rex's handprint on it, which Rex put on his original, "shiny" armor using a Rishi eel's blood, way back in [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E5Rookies "Rookies"]]. Similarly, Fives has painted a stylized Rishi eel on his own helmet, as a reminder of their teammate Cutup, who was eaten by one of the eels.

* AscendedExtra: Even Piell, who had no spoken lines in the two [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Prequel]] [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Trilogy]] films he appeared in, receives a fleshed out expanded role in this episode (along with the storyline it is part of). Captain Tarkin might also count.

* EyeScream: Master Piell already lost his left eye prior to ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', and after the ElectricTorture fails, the droid attempts to gouge out his other with a needle in its hand. It's millimetres away from doing so when the rescue team arrives.

Returning from a dangerous assignment, Jedi Master Even Piell's cruiser had fallen under Separatist attack. Seeking the crucial intel he carries about the secret Nexus Route hyperspace lane, which can provide a strike force with easy access to key worlds on both sides, the Separatists captured him and his crew alive, and transferred them to a prison designed to hold Jedi: [[TheAlcatraz The Citadel]]. Obi-Wan and Anakin are tasked to lead a team of Clone Troopers to rescue Piell and his men, with Ahsoka Tano sneaking aboard their ship to take part in the mission.

* LetsSplitUpGang: Obi-Wan suggests splitting into two groups, so that even if one party is captured, the enemy would only have half of the intel, while Tarkin counters that a stronger, unified team has a better chance of protecting it. Ultimately Piell decides to go with Obi-Wan's plan.
* MacGuffin: The Nexus Route coordinates are known by Captain Tarkin and Even Piell, forcing the Jedi and the 501[[superscript:st]] to recover them no matter the cost.

* TheAlcatraz: The eponymous Citadel, which can be found on a remote, [[LethalLavaLand volcanic]] [[ShatteredWorld half-of-a-planet]]. The tower is full of traps, and guarded by battalions of droids. It's explicitly stated that even if someone manages to escape the building, they still can't really go anywhere because the broken, lava-strewn landscape is almost impossible to cross especially while being chased. And then to get off the planet they need a ship, and then make it past the Separatist blockade.
* AscendedExtra: Even Piell, who had no spoken lines in the [[Film/ThePhantomMenace two]] [[Film/AttackOfTheClones movies]] he appeared in, receives an expanded role in this episode (along with the storyline it is part of). Captain Tarkin might also count.

* AirVentPassageway: Subverted and lampshaded by Ahsoka. With the entry point the Jedi wanted to use blocked, Anakin and Obi-Wan debate how to get in, and Ahsoka points out the ventilation hatch. Anakin brushes this idea off -- it had already come up in planning and been dismissed because no one on the team is small enough to squeeze through the vent -- but Ahsoka, who stowed away to join the mission, is small enough to make it, barely.
