Star Wars: The Clone Wars s05e19 Episode Script

To Catch a Jedi

Ahsoka Tano on the run! After an attack on the Jedi Temple, Anakin Skywalker's young Padawan found herself accused of murdering the person responsible for the bombings.
With no choice but to run, she was chased by her master, who begged her to turn herself in.
Knowing there is little hope of being cleared of the crimes, Ahsoka decided to find out the truth and prove her innocence on her own.
After further investigation, there can be little doubt that the clone officers murdered in the escape were killed by none other than Ahsoka Tano herself.
She used a Jedi mind trick to convince the clone to open the door and then proceeded to cut him down along with five other clones along the way.
I do not believe that Ahsoka could have fallen so far.
The beliefs of the Jedi Council are irrelevant.
We deal strictly in facts and evidence, and the evidence points to Padawan Tano being guilty of the attack on the temple and the murder of the Republic officers.
This is sedition.
Skywalker, was there no way to stop your Padawan before she escaped? No, Master Mundi.
The Council believes that Ahsoka may be guilty of the crime, still believe they are wrong, do you, hmm? I believe she didn't kill the clone troopers or the woman who used the nano-droids to blow up the temple.
That's why she's running.
To prove her innocence.
Now she's in the lower depths.
With her skills, she will be hard to find.
Two teams we will send.
Master Skywalker and Master Plo Koon, with clones you will go.
I think it would be best if Skywalker stayed here.
Having you involved may actually make things worse.
Master Windu, with all due respect, she is my Padawan.
The reason for you not to go.
I think we're being foolish if we take Anakin off this mission.
Who knows her better? He's emotionally tied to her.
Probably too emotional to do what needs to be done.
I'd rather capture Ahsoka and find out the truth then let her run because of a lie.
You must prove to us that you will stay focused.
Can you? I've already alerted security on the lower levels to be on the lookout for Ahsoka.
Go swiftly then, Skywalker, and bring back this lost child before it is too late.
Yes, Master.
This one just came in.
Looks like the Jedi are after one of their own.
She's armed and dangerous.
Alert all units.
You heard him.
Barriss, it's Ahsoka.
Ahsoka, I'm so glad you're safe.
- Safe but on the run.
- Where? I can't tell you, but someone is definitely trying to frame me.
It's not safe for you to call me using the Jedi communicator.
Find another way to contact me.
I will.
In the meantime, I'll do some digging and see if I can find anything out to help you on my end.
Thank you, Barriss.
Be safe.
Hey, buddy, are you hungry? Yeah.
Let's make a trade.
What do you want? Your cloak.
Passes, please.
Passes, please.
Passes, please.
That's her.
The rogue Jedi.
All units respond.
We have located the rogue Jedi.
- Uh.
- Whoa.
- Ah! - Oh.
Get out of the way.
Look out! Stop her! I've got her.
Ah! Ugh.
- Look out.
- Ah.
- Whoa.
- Ah! Dupa-la zuga lu! Sir, look! Stop! Not good.
Don't worry, little guy, I'll get us out of this.
I'll--I'll think of something.
Maybe I can cut a hole in the roof.
Ya kumay na.
Ya kumay na.
Almost there.
Kumay na.
Almost got it.
Kumay na.
Kumay na.
Kumay na.
I, uh, guess I'm not exactly on my game these days.
Thanks, kid.
I owe you one.
The lower level police claim to have spotted Commander Tano heading to level 1312.
All right, let's bring her home.
Uh! Well, well, I didn't believe it when I first heard it, but I guess it's true, the Senate has put a bounty on your horned little head.
And I'm going to be the one who collects.
Ventress, it was you, wasn't it? You were behind all of this, and you framed me! I don't know what you're talking about.
Yes, you do! So what are you now, a bounty hunter? Yes, and someone who knows how to make easy money.
You think you're just gonna hand me over? And then what? Get a pat on the shoulder? You're Separatist war criminal and a Sith.
They'll have us both in prison before you said your name.
I don't have to hand you over to the Jedi.
I can hand you over to the bondsman and still get paid.
I'm gonna get my money whether you're dead or alive.
Heh, good luck.
Despite what you hear, I'm still a Jedi.
I'm afraid the other Jedi no longer see it that way.
I hate to admit it, but you're right.
That's why I'm going to need your help.
In what star system do you think I would ever help you? A traitorous Jedi tried to blow up the Jedi Temple and has framed me for that and other killings.
Mmm, so the Jedi aren't that holy after all.
I know Dooku tried to have you killed.
I know he betrayed you.
What if this is his new apprentice? I've fallen from my path just as you've fallen from yours.
We have a lot more in common than you think.
What can you offer me that's better than money? If you help me, I'll speak to the Council and the Senate on your behalf.
I'll get you a full pardon for your crimes.
You have my attention.
But I'm going to go where the tide flows.
If the tide is flowing against you, don't think I'll forget about the bounty on your head.
Fair enough.
I suggest we find somewhere else to discuss this.
Shine the light over there.
Stay where you are! Ventress.
Send out the probes.
I want them found now! Nice place you have here.
Not everyone on Coruscant lives in a luxurious temple on the surface.
I guess I'll have to get used to that.
Just make the call.
Adding another criminal act to your record? I don't want them to be able to trace it.
Barriss, it's me.
It's so good to see you, Ahsoka.
Are you okay? Yeah, I'm okay, if you consider Anakin and a hundred clones on my tail a good space to be in.
You were almost captured? Once or twice, yeah.
Where are you? I can't say, Barriss.
I believe I've found a clue.
A clue? How? From where? We don't have much time, Ahsoka.
Fine, I'm on level 1312.
A holo-booth at the corner of 12th and G.
Got it.
Three levels up there seems to be an abandoned warehouse where they used to build munitions that Letta visited during the time she was getting access to the nano-droids.
How did you find this out? I told you I would do some checking.
Ah, thank you, Barriss.
Be careful, Ahsoka.
Well? I think I have a lead.
It doesn't seem like you need my help.
That's not true.
We need to find an abandoned munitions warehouse on level 1315.
We should be able to find some information there.
You know the place I'm talking about, don't you? Yes.
I can get you there.
Listen to me.
I don't want to fight.
I do.
We're taking you in now, Commander.
That's not gonna happen, trust me.
Now I'm not going to hurt any of you-- we're not going to hurt any of you-- but you're not taking me in.
Commander, we are taking you in.
Let's play.
Take 'em out.
Ah! Take her out.
Take her out.
Ventress, don't.
Look out! Ugh! They'll cut us down! Oh! Watch it! Take a shot.
Too fast.
Ah, oh.
See? Didn't kill one.
It's the new me.
General Plo Koon, we had Commander Tano, but she escaped with the help of Asajj Ventress.
There it is.
That's where you're supposed to find this clue.
I've done my part of the bargain, which means you're on your own from here.
But don't forget, you have to speak on my behalf now.
That was the deal.
Thanks for getting this far, at least.
I have to admit, I never saw us doing anything together ever.
These are strange times.
I thought we decided we were going to part ways.
Ugh, ah! Ah! How am I supposed to find a clue when I don't even know what I'm looking for? Uh! Ventress! I see you've had a change of heart.
Why bring me here? Answer me, Ventress.
Why? Ah! Calling all units.
Suspicious activity on level 1315.
Nano-droids? No, Wolffe, let me explain.
These are the same types of nano-droids that were used to blow up the Jedi Temple.
I can't believe it.
Captured she has been? Yes, Master Yoda.
Without incident? No, she was subdued by the clones and found in possession of explosive nano-droids.
It still doesn't explain Ventress' involvement.
We saw her with Ahsoka.
I think there's more going on than we know.
By Ahsoka or against her? That remains to be seen.
We're bringing her back to the temple.
Let's just hope we can keep her here.
