Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 Episode 11 Recap:
The episode starts with moments of peace before Order 66 is invoked. Bo-Katan learns of Maul’s capture and tells Ahsoka he wishes he was good at something other than war. The former Jedi says to the legendary Mandalorian that his people need a different kind of leader. She also reflects on how she’s always known war, despite protection being a Jedi’s primary job. She contacts the council about Maul’s capture, and Yoda thanks her for her service.
However, Ahsoka senses through the Force that Skywalker has turned to the Dark Side, Mace Windu is dead, and Palpatine is unmasked as the Sith Lord responsible for orchestrating the Clone Wars. As democracy dies and Darth Vader is born, Sidious orders the Storm Troopers to kill all Jedi, who are declared to be traitors against the Republic.
With Order 66 in effect, Rex and the Troopers turn on Ahsoka, who barely escapes with her life. However, she manages to learn from Rex that chips exist within the Troopers’ brains, which force them to comply with orders. Since she’s out of options, Ahsoka is forced to let Maul loose to create a distraction. As he tears through the Troopers using his Force, Ahsoka tracks down how to remove the chip.
Tano and her droid companions help Ahsoka remove the chip from Rex’s skull, as he picks up the blasters and shoots his men to save the ex-Jedi. Without his inhibitors, Rex is back to his old self and is shocked at having tried to kill Ahsoka. However, he informs her that the entire grand army of the Republic has been instructed to hunt down and kill all Jedi Knights. With the finale approaching, it appears that the Jedi will not survive the wrath of the mighty Palpatine.
