Star Wars: The Clone Wars s05e20 Episode Script

The Wrong Jedi

Ahsoka Tano captured! While on the run to prove her innocence, Padawan Tano teamed up with the deadly Asajj Ventress to find the rogue Jedi who framed Ahsoka for murder.
The Jedi Council sent Anakin Skywalker and Master Plo Koon to track Ahsoka down and bring her back to the Temple.
Now captured and imprisoned, Ahsoka faces punishment for crimes she did not commit.
The Senate requests that Ahsoka Tano be indicted for acts of treason against the Republic.
A fair trial Padawan Tano will have in accordance with Jedi tradition.
Ah, yes, Jedi tradition.
I'm afraid, Master Yoda, that the Senate believes that an internal Jedi trial would seem biased.
Therefore, the Senate asks that the Council expel Ahsoka Tano from the Jedi Order so that she may be put to a Republic Military tribunal, where she will receive more impartial judgment.
And who would represent Ahsoka in this tribunal, Admiral? That would be up to the Council, General, but I would recommend someone outside the Order.
Of course.
The Council will act as they deem necessary.
Thank you, Admiral.
Surely we cannot do what Tarkin suggests.
We need to stand together with Ahsoka.
And yet there's evidence that she is indeed the mastermind behind the attack on the Temple.
She was found in possession of nanodroid explosives.
This alone is enough to convict her.
I understand your sentiment, Obi-Wan, but if the Council does as you suggest, it could be seen as an act of opposition to the Senate.
I'm afraid we have little choice.
To the Chamber of Judgment, summon Skywalker and his Padawan, and in our decision, may the Force guide us.
You're not helping.
I'm sorry, Snips.
I just--I just don't know what to do.
It's okay.
I don't either.
Padawan Tano, serious charges have been levied against you.
How plead you? Not guilty, Master.
I would never take the lives of innocents.
The values of the Jedi are sacred to me.
There is evidence to the contrary.
You were alone with Letta Turmond when she died.
Can you explain this? Someone used the Force against her.
Which brings us to Ventress.
Can you explain your association with her? We had a mutual understanding.
I thought she was helping me.
Did you she help you acquire the nanodroid weaponry found when you were apprehended, the same devices used in the bombing of the Temple? No, I was set up and deceived, as you are being deceived now.
The question is, Padawan Tano, who is deceiving us? Ventress, you, or someone else? I am not deceiving you.
I would assume Ventress is, but I can't be sure.
My sense is clouded.
Clouded by the dark side these things are, Padawan Tano.
Dangerously clouded, but not just surrounding you, surrounding many things in these times.
You've already made your decision, haven't you? This meeting is just a formality! Reached a decision, we have, though not in total agreement are we.
It is the Council's opinion that Padawan Ahsoka Tano has committed sedition against the Republic, and thus, she will be expelled from the Jedi Order.
You can't do this! Your Padawan status will be stripped from you, and you shall forfeit all rank and privileges within the Grand Army of the Republic.
You will be turned over to the Republic courts to await your trail and whatever punishment they will set for you.
Henceforth, you are barred from the Jedi Order.
Padmé has agreed to represent you before the Senate.
I will do everything I can to prove your innocence, Ahsoka.
I am almost certain that the person behind this is Ventress, and you know I wasn't working with her.
She was at the warehouse in the room.
We fought, but she got away.
Didn't any of the clones see anything? No, none of the clones reported seeing Ventress at the scene.
I thought you said Ventress left before you went into the warehouse.
That's what I thought, too, but then she attacked me when I got inside.
I'd know her red lightsabers anywhere.
Well, if that's our only lead, then I know what I have to do.
Wait, where are you going? You can't leave now.
Yes, I can.
I have to find Ventress and get to the bottom of this.
Until we hear from Anakin, let's work on your defense.
Forgive me if I'm not optimistic.
I thought I was part of that Order, but everyone, except Anakin, has abandoned me.
I'm not holding out much hope the Senate will treat me any better.
Anakin Skywalker.
I know you're behind all of this.
Prove it.
Leave me alone.
Tell me what happened.
When I heard your little brat was on the run, I thought she might bring a large bounty.
Bounty? I was going to catch your pet and turn her over to the authorities, collect whatever bounty was due.
What stopped you? At first--I admit--I was just interested in the money and a little bit of revenge, but then I realized your fallen Padawan and I had a lot in common.
How dare you compare yourself to Ahsoka? It's true.
My master abandoned me, and that's exactly what you did to her, you and your precious Jedi Order.
Ahsoka Tano, you have been charged with sedition against the Jedi Order and the Republic itself.
This court will decide your fate.
Prosecution, you may begin your arguments.
Former Padawan Tano, I shall prove that you were the mastermind behind the attack on the Jedi Temple and that once your accomplices carried out your orders, you eliminated them one by one.
When you are found guilty, I ask the court that the full extent of the law be brought down upon you, including penalty of death.
After I left the warehouse, after I left your little Padawan alone, I was walking away, and I thought she came up behind me to talk more.
But I was wrong.
Someone came out of nowhere and hit me from behind.
Not just anyone can sneak up behind me.
It had to be another Jedi.
I don't believe you.
Believe it.
Whoever you're looking for has my lightsabers.
That's how you'll know you've found the criminal.
Well, this leads me to a dead end.
You're the only one Ahsoka had talked to.
That's not true.
What do you mean? Your Padawan contacted the Temple.
She spoke to someone named Barriss.
That's why we knew to go to the warehouse in the first place.
It was this Barriss that told us to go there.
If you're lying, you're dead.
Such promises.
Look at the facts.
Letta Turmond called Ahsoka to her cell to reveal the name of the true mastermind behind the bombing of the Jedi Temple.
Letta told Ahsoka she was afraid.
She told her the mastermind was a Jedi, and before she could reveal the Jedi's name, Letta Turmond was strangled to death by way of the Force.
Why would Ahsoka kill Letta with a method that would so obviously tie the murder to her? A Jedi may be responsible for the murder, but that Jedi is not Ahsoka Tano.
Members of the court, you are prosecuting the wrong Jedi.
Well said, Senator Amidala.
However, if she is innocent, then why was she seen conspiring with known Separatist terrorist Asajj Ventress? Ventress set me up.
My master will prove that.
And where is your master? He's trying to find the real murderer.
Then maybe he should be looking at you.
Barriss, I need to talk to you.
Master Skywalker, how can I help you? I was told that you spoke with Ahsoka before she was arrested.
What did you say to her? We've been friends for a long time.
I was only trying to help her.
I hope I'm not in any trouble.
It's no trouble.
I just need to know what you told her and if you told anyone else.
No, I thought I had a clue for her, but I really couldn't tell her anything.
Who told you I spoke to her? Ventress.
She told me.
Ventress? Isn't she the one Ahsoka says is really behind all this? That's what Ahsoka says, but I think she's wrong.
Ventress thinks someone else is involved.
And you believe her? Who else could it be if not her? Surely not Ahsoka.
No, I don't think it was Ahsoka either.
I think both Ahsoka and Ventress are telling the truth, but there's only one way to find out.
Those belong to Ventress.
You should've gotten rid of them! I think they suit me.
I'm sure many of you look at this former Jedi and think, "Surely she cannot be this murderer or saboteur that they speak of.
" And yet think of all the times we have been fooled by the Separatists and how they have infiltrated the Republic and ask yourself, "Is this yet another Separatist scheme?" Another way to rip the Jedi, and subsequently all of us, apart.
Ahsoka trusted you, and you betrayed her.
I've learned that trust is overrated.
The only thing the Jedi Council believes in is violence.
Cease hostility! Barriss! Look out! The members of the court have reached a decision.
Ahsoka Tano, by an overwhelming count of-- Chancellor.
I hope you have a reason for bursting into our proceedings, Master Skywalker.
I'm here with evidence and a confession from the person responsible for all the crimes Ahsoka has been accused of.
Barriss Offee, member of the Jedi Order and traitor.
Barriss, is that true? Tell them the truth.
I did it because I've come to realize what many of people in the Republic have come to realize, that the Jedi are the ones responsible for this war, that we've so lost our way that we have become villains in this conflict, that we are the ones that should be put on trial, all of us! And my attack on the Temple was an attack on what the Jedi have become, an army fighting for the dark side, fallen from the light that we once held so dear.
This Republic is failing! It's only a matter of time.
Take her away.
Ahsoka, I am so sorry about everything.
You have our most humble apologies, little 'Soka.
The Council was wrong to accuse you.
You have shown such great strength and resilience in your struggle to prove your innocence.
This is the true sign of a Jedi Knight.
This was actually your great trial.
Now we see that.
We understand that the Force works in mysterious ways, and because of this trial, you have become a greater Jedi than you would have otherwise.
Back into the Order you may come.
They're asking you back, Ahsoka.
I'm asking you back.
I'm sorry, Master, but I'm not coming back.
Ahsoka, wait! Ahsoka, I need to talk to you.
Why are you doing this? The Council didn't trust me, so how can I trust myself? What about me? I believed in you.
I stood by you.
I know you believe in me, Anakin, and I'm grateful for that.
But this isn't about you.
I can't stay here any longer, not now.
The Jedi Order is your life.
You can't just throw it away like this.
Ahsoka, you are making a mistake.
Maybe, but I have to sort this out on my own, without the Council and without you.
I understand.
More than you realize, I understand wanting to walk away from the Order.
I know.
