Star Wars: The Clone Wars s01e10 Episode Script

The Lair of General Grievous

Viceroy Gunray escapes.
En route to Coruscant to stand trial for war crimes, evil separatist leader Nute Gunray has broken free of his Jedi escort.
With the help of Count Dooku's sinister agents, the villainous Viceroy has made a daring getaway.
Alerted to the bold prison break, Jedi Master Kit Fisto has traced the stolen ship to a remote system, hoping to recapture Gunray and return him to justice.
I know we're in the middle of nowhere, R6, but that's the Republic beacon we're looking for.
Contact the Outer Rim command.
Master Luminara, I have tracked the location of our stolen ship to the Vassek system.
So has your old Padawan, Nahdar Vebb.
He's already on the surface.
It'll be great to see Nahdar again.
I'll transmit the coordinates for the rendezvous point.
And Master Fisto, sorry we lost that slimy double-dealer.
Don't worry, Ahsoka, we'll catch Gunray yet.
Good hunting.
Well, I can't see anything either.
You'll be fine, R6.
Just keep a lookout for me, okay? Nahdar! Congratulations on passing the trials.
I'm sorry the war prevented me from seeing your training through to the end.
You were missed, Master, but it is an honor to finally serve beside you as a knight.
General, we've pinpointed the tracking beacon's location to the south end of the gorge.
Then let's have a look.
Allow me to show the way.
Let's not keep the Viceroy waiting.
Niner, Bel, look after the ships.
Yes, sir! No guards? - That's odd.
- The entrance looks sealed.
We specialize in making entrances.
This will make less noise.
Patience, the both of you.
A second look usually pays off.
What's this? I sense there's something here.
Scanners are negative, General.
Well, that was something.
All droids stay on guard.
- Be ready for anything.
- Roger, roger.
Double shifts for everyone! Viceroy? You must protect me at all costs.
Viceroy, the Jedi are here.
I know they're near.
Once those Jedi pick up my trail, they never leave me alone.
They're right behind you.
What? Where? Do something.
You! Blast them! I didn't forget to teach you restraint, did I, my old Padawan? I am sorry, Master.
I got carried away.
Those who have power should restrain themselves from using it.
Lieutenant, did you get them? No, but we have you, Viceroy.
You have nothing, Jedi fools.
I welcome you to your doom.
The tracking beacon.
They knew we were coming.
I should have known Gunray wasn't here.
At the first sight of us, he would have run off screaming like the coward he is.
I apologize for the deception, Master Jedi.
Count Dooku.
You have a great talent for unexpected appearances.
It's a shame you came so far to be frustrated.
While the Viceroy is unavailable for capture, allow me to offer you an alternative prize.
This has got to be a trap.
It looks like Dooku is trying to catch someone, and we're the bait.
But who has the trap been set to catch? Shall we find out? This place looks like a shrine to that strange warrior.
This is the lair of General Grievous.
Yes, my Lord? General, the ongoing stalemate in the war has become unacceptable.
There is concern you have lost your focus.
Lord Sidious demands more dramatic results, more dead Jedi.
You expect victory over Jedi, but all you give me to fight them is battle droids.
These must be trophies taken from the Jedi he's murdered.
There are so many.
Why would Dooku want to set a trap for his best General? It doesn't make sense.
Are we the bait, or is Grievous the bait? We must consider who this trap is for.
General, your droid is tracking an incoming ship.
It matches a description of General Grievous' fighter.
It's headed our way.
Keep out of sight and stand by for further orders.
Capturing Grievous could turn the tide of the war.
And if he doesn't know we're here, we could take him down easy.
Don't underestimate him.
We'll need a plan.
Guards? Gore? Gore, where are you? Welcome home, General.
I'm afraid I must request your surrender.
Cooperate, Grievous, and perhaps the senate will be merciful.
It is you who shall get no mercy.
Cables! Don't let him go! We got him! Don't let him cut the lines! Hold him! Don't make me destroy you.
Come and get me.
Cut him off! Where'd he go? The clones got in the way.
I could have taken him.
Let's take care of our wounded.
Doctor, where are you? Don't be upset with me, Master.
If you were a better fighter, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
Look what you let those Jedi do to you.
You're a walking scrap pile.
What a mess.
It's going to take me forever to get you back into decent shape.
I'll go fetch your spare parts.
What happened to my bodyguards? They were remotely deactivated for recharge.
I thought you did it.
Lock down the perimeter.
Let me go after Grievous myself, Master.
Patience, Nahdar.
You may no longer be a Padawan, but you are not ready to take on Grievous.
It's time we retreated.
You are not going anywhere.
It looks like we're going to have to fight after all.
Green scout to watcher base.
This is watcher base, over.
Contact the fleet at Besteene.
Inform them we've engaged Grievous and require reinforcements.
Right away, sir.
Better warm up the shuttle's long-range transmitter.
Get out of there, R6, now! R6? You've run out of time.
Why don't you come out? Show us some of that separatist hospitality.
In the meantime, please experience all my home has to offer.
It has been prepared for uninvited guests like you.
General, I know you're watching.
We've seen the lower levels of your home.
We're not impressed.
Good, Jedi, good.
You will provide some sport for me yet.
Gore, time to entertain our guests.
Stand firm.
There might be worse things here than Grievous.
It looks like you're right about that, sir.
Good-bye, Jedi.
Master, the armor patches are getting cold, and contrary to your belief, I do have other things to do.
Proceed with my repair.
Sometimes I wonder why you submitted to the changes.
I submit to no one.
I chose them.
Now get on with it.
There may be some discomfort.
Shoot him, Commander! Grievous is going to pay for this.
I will destroy him.
I understand your pain, but you forget your teachings, Nahdar.
Revenge is not the Jedi way.
But in this war, strength prevails.
The rules have changed.
Perhaps you are the one who has changed.
Come now, we need to keep moving.
Let's see if Gore is finished playing with the Jedi.
Where are they? Gore? You have an incoming transmission from Count Dooku.
General, I understand the Jedi have infiltrated your lair.
Your recent defeats at their hands have shaken my faith in your ability to lead the droid army.
I'm sure you can understand my need to reassess your effectiveness.
You! You deactivated my guards.
You let the Jedi in here so you would test me.
I do hope you emerge victorious.
It's time for you to prove All right, Count.
I'll play your little game.
In your condition, you need your rest.
I will rest when the Jedi are dead.
You were right, Master.
That exit must lead to the control room.
What have we here? The uninvited guests.
Let's go.
Master, the Jedi are about to enter the control room.
- Nahdar, inside, hurry! - No, you go.
I will hold him off.
There's no time to argue.
We can't just run.
We must finish him.
Nahdar, hurry! I have been waiting for this.
Greetings, young Jedi.
- Where is your Master? - How exciting.
You will find out soon enough.
- You can't defeat us all.
- Of course I can.
Get him, Master.
Kill him! Where's the other Jedi? I will kill you all.
Do you hear me, Jedi? R6? Is that you? Meet me at the south landing platform.
I'll be right there.
I'm coming for you next, Fisto.
I'll be gone by the time you get here.
R6, I'm at the platform.
Where are you? Going somewhere? You might have been a proud warrior once, but now, you're just a pawn in Dooku's game.
I wield great power, Jedi fool.
That power will only consume you.
How quickly power can change hands.
Surrender, and I promise you will die quickly.
Stop him! Let's go home, R6.
Count Dooku, the Jedi have been defeated.
Victory over the clones and the young Jedi was expected, but to best a Jedi Master This is truly an accomplishment worthy of recognition.
The Jedi Fisto escaped.
So there is room for improvement.
What about your former Padawan? His heart was in the right place, but he tried to answer Grievous' power with his own.
To answer power with power, the Jedi way this is not.
In this war, a danger there is of losing who we are.
