The latest episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 is finally here and it has exactly what fans have been waiting for. The Siege of Mandalore is about to start and we got a glimpse at how it will be in the final season of the animated series.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers from Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 Episode 9. Proceed with caution.
In Old Friends Not Forgotten, we get more battle sequences as the show gets closer to the events in Revenge of the Sith. But before that, there's a huge battle that needs to take place and we get to see how it all begins.
Having agreed to work with Bo-Katan Kryze, Ahsoka Tano now has the duty to call on the Republic for help. She sends a message to Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi asking the Republic to aid them in taking Mandalore back from Darth Maul.
Not surprisingly, we get a reunion between Ahsoka, Anakin, and Obi-Wan and it is revealed why the latter two didn't join the Siege of Mandalore. The Jedi are dispatched to check on General Grievous and it is decided that Ahsoka will lead the 322nd along with Captain Rex in the fight against Maul. Needless to say, that effectively gets Anakin and Obi-Wan out of the way as Ahsoka takes center stage.
The Siege of Mandalore has long been expected to be the climax of The Clone Wars and we still can't believe we're almost there. There is little doubt that the final episode will be an epic one.
