This week, victory will come at a high price as Star Wars: The Clone Wars shows the explosive conclusion to the Onderon Story arc via the episode titled “Tipping Points”, which premieres on the Cartoon Network this Saturday, October 27th at 9:30am ET/PT.
“Tipping Points” focuses on the full scale revolt going on at Onderon, as the rebels strike a decisive blow against the planet’s Separatist-aligned king. What the rebels don’t know is that their hard-earned victory will come at a cost that not all of them were willing to pay.
Episode-related Trivia provided by LucasFilm:
An unscripted response from the lead droid gunship mechanically intones “by your command,” a nod to the classic Cylons from the original Battlestar Galactica series.
Hondo’s yacht is named the Fortune and Glory, a nod to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, wherein Indy and Short Round talk about seeking out “fortune and glory.”
When Lux points out to Ahsoka that Steela’s courage is all well and good but, “What good would that do us if she gets herself killed?”, it’s a deliberate echo of a line Luke Skywalker delivers about Han Solo in Episode IV.
