Podcast Stardust #70: The Clone Wars – A Distant Echo – 0702

by Podcast Stardust

Captain Rex and the Bad Batch mount a rescue mission on Skako Minor in the latest from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. We discuss this and plenty about Anakin on this episode.

After infiltrating the Separatist Cyber Center, Rex is convinced that his old friend, Echo, is still alive. For his part, Anakin thinks Rex might be a little obsessed about it. After consulting Padmé, Anakin throws his support behind his friend, even if it frustrates Obi-Wan in the process. However, once Rex, Anakin, and the Bad Batch get to Skako Minor, the mystery deepens, and a tragic truth awaits them.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Rex’s determination to find out about the fate of Echo,
  • Anakin’s clandestine communication to Padmé,
  • Anakin’s concern for Rex and issues of attachment,
  • Whether Obi-Wan really knows the truth behind Anakin and Padmé’s relationship,
  • The Clones’ interaction with the Poletecs,
  • The attack on the Separatist base on Skako Minor, and
  • What happened to Echo when Rex and Tech finally discover the truth.
