Spoiler Warning: This article contains plots details about Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The return of the hit Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, which originally ran from 2008 to 2014, has been long awaited by fans since it was announced that a seventh and final season would be coming to Disney + after a six-year long break. The seventh season began airing on Disney+ in February this year and has reignited the stories of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex with a 12 episode season. So far, nine episodes have premiered and have covered some epic plot arcs including The Bad Batch, The Siege of Mandalore and the return of Sith Lord Darth Maul.
Season 7 Episode 11: "Shattered"
After capturing Maul on Mandalore, Ahsoka's journey to the Jedi Council is disrupted when Order 66 is declared, turning her world upside down.
Season 7 Episode 12: "Victory and Death"
Ahsoka and Rex must use their wit and skills to survive the turbulent end of the Clone Wars.
WHAT THIS MEANS
With Disney announcing that this will indeed be the final season for the well-loved series, the show has a lot of hopes riding on its series finale to wrap up the 137-episode arc in a satisfying way. Judging by these descriptions, the episodes won't disappoint. With The Clone Wars now covering the Siege of Mandalore, an event in the Star Wars universe fans have been clamoring to see, along with the return of Darth Maul, it looks like the creators are bringing out the big guns for the final season.
Order 66 is set to appear in Episode 11 and is another pinnacle event in Star Wars history. When Chancellor Palpatine ordered the execution of all Jedi as traitors it was the final step in Anakin's turn to the Dark Side. We've seen this covered in Revenge of the Sith, but this will be the first time it has been shown in The Clone Wars series and it will hopefully give audiences the chance to see it from Ahsoka's point of view.
The final episode description doesn't give much away but promises to wrap up the stories of Ahoksa and Rex and show the end to the long years of the Clone Wars. It was also recently announced that the finale would shift dates to Monday, May 4th instead of its usual Friday slot to celebrate Star Wars Day.
Little is known about Ahsoka's journey between The Clone Wars and Rebels, so it's highly likely that these last two episodes will fill in more of the blanks in her timeline and we'll be given more insight into her backstory prior to her upcoming return in The Mandalorian.
