Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 2, Episode 22 - "Lethal Trackdown" Review


The Clone Wars season finale was a bit lacking when it came to an emotional component it seemed to be striving for, but certainly delivered when it came to action and spectacle.


I really liked that of the four characters featured prominently here - Ahsoka Tano, Plo Koon, Aurra Sing and Boba Fett - only Boba had even a partially notable role in the films. Sure, Aurra and Plo were introduced in the movies, but this series is giving them far more to do than simply look cool, and the fact that they can carry entire episodes (and a finale no less) is a credit to The Clone Wars, for not being confined by just telling Anakin and Obi-Wan stories and allowing us to become invested in many other characters in the Star Wars universe.


This episode had some of the most mature content this series has flirted with, in many different ways. Aurra Sing was a nasty piece of work, beating her prisoners for no reason (she wasn't even trying to get information from them) and shooting and killing one in cold blood, simply to make a point about how serious she was to the Jedi. We also had Hondo's men having Kowakian monkey-lizards (Salacious Crumb's race) fighting to the death, for their amusement - and likely potential betting profit - in what seemed to be the Star Wars equivalent of dog fights. Plus, we had a fairly provocative table dancer at a nightclub.
