Go To
A lesson learned is a lesson earned.

Ahsoka is assigned to duty at the Jedi Temple archives after disobeying orders to withdraw on Felucia. She's unhappy because she thinks it'll be boring. However, Darth Sidious has hired bounty hunter Cad Bane to steal a holocron from the vault of the Jedi Temple...


  • Action Prologue: The episode opens on Felucia with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, Plo Koon, and a squad of clone troopers in the middle of a battle.
  • Air-Vent Passageway: The Jedi Temple's vents are enormous. Cad Bane uses them to break in.
  • Alliterative Title: "Holocron Heist".
  • Anachronic Order: This episode (and the subsequent two episodes that are part of the story arc this episode begins) take place before "Hostage Crisis", which was aired as the finale of the first season.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Bane gets away with a holocron.
  • Call-Back: Cato Parasitti isn't the first Clawdite bounty hunter in canon. That would be Zam Wessell.

  • Deadly Rotary Fan: There's one in the Jedi Temple vents.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: Cato Parasitti enters the Jedi Temple by impersonating a recently-killed Jedi Master named Ord Enisence.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: The Jedi aren't able to catch Bane because, while Master Yoda foresees the break-in, they assume the intruders are there for information on military deployments due to the holocrons only being of use to those who can open them.
  • Gunship Rescue: The episode opens with Anakin and Obi-Wan awaiting one on Felucia, led by Plo Koon.
  • Holographic Disguise: Clawdite bounty hunter Cato Parasitti has one to mimic the clothing of people she impersonates.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Angry at being left to get arrested by Bane, Cato tells the Jedi who he's going after next: the Jedi Master Bolla Ropal, who is the caretaker of a crystal that contains a list of all the Force-sensitive children known to the Order.

  • Rapid-Fire "No!": Todo-360 does this just before he blows up.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Cato Parasitti is able to shapeshift like all Clawdites, but she's limited to humanoids.
  • Why Am I Ticking?: Bane hides a bomb inside his droid Todo-360 and blows him up to distract the Jedi.
