Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars S2E6 "Weapons Factory"

Go To

No gift is more precious than trust.

After successfully destorying the shield generator of Poggle's weapon factory, Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barriss Offee join Anakin and Ahsoka in their efforts to bring down the fortified factory itself.


  • Action Girl: Ahsoka, Barriss, and Luminara.
  • Animated Adaptation: This episode was based on issue 67 of the Republic comics series, with Ahsoka taking the place of an older Padawan, whom Anakin had a crush-on, in order to raise the stakes. Unlike Ahsoka in this episode, she didn't make it.

  • Call-Forward: Luminara tries to counsel Anakin to be prepared for the worst if Ahsoka (and Barriss) dies during the mission. His refusal to do so is admirable (since it does help save her), but it's also the exact issue, when concerning Padmé, that ultimately leads to Anakin's fall.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Memorizing two hundred junctions of a literal bug hive borders on this.
  • Darkest Hour: Outside the factory, invincible super tanks are blowing lots of Clone Troopers to kingdom come. Inside the factory, Ahsoka is knocked out (again) and the Geonosians end up stealing the explosives, thus throwing a monkey wrench into Ahsoka and Barriss' operation.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted. After the Geonosians took the bombs, Ahsoka and Barriss used a hijacked tank to destroy the power generator, which blew up right next to them and then the whole building came crushing down on them. However, they survived due to the tank's extremely strong shield.

  • In the Hood: Barriss.
  • Plot Armour: Literally. The super-tanks' extreme shielding was a plot point even before it saved Ahsoka and Barriss' lives.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Ahsoka's the red to Barriss' blue.
  • Unspoken Plan Guarantee: Luminara explained the plan in advance. It went south at the most crucial part.
