One of our all time favorite Clone Wars episode arcs is the “Citadel Arc,” that begins with its namesake episode titled, “The Citadel,” in which our favorite Jedi and Clones go on a rescue mission to a giant, booby-trapped, maximum security prison that was originally built to CONTAIN ROGUE JEDI. It’s a little crazy, right? We discuss our thoughts and theories on this fact, plus all the craziness that follows: meeting Tarkin for the first time pre-OT and seeing carbon freezing for the first time pre-OT. We also talk about the symbolism of the colors used in the design of the planet where the Citadel is located and how it represents a lot more than what you initially think. This episode sets the stage for some of the most heartbreaking, foreboding, and impactful moments to come in the series and in Star Wars as a whole, so join us on this three part series as we break it all down!
