Star Wars: The Clone Wars - A Distant Echo

With tensions running high, Anakin (Matt Lanter) joins Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) and the Bad Batch on the mission to Skako Minor. They do find Echo (Baker) inside the tower hooked up to the machines as the former Clone Trooper does indeed appear to be the source of the Droids' algorithm. A middle episode for the season's opening arc, we get shoot-outs with droids, some odd aliens, and there are plenty of question left to be answered as the team still needs to find a way to get Echo, and themselves, off the planet. Besides the return of a character lost in the original Clone Wars run, "A Distant Echo" is notable for a call between Anakin and Padme (Catherine Taber), one that Obi-Wan (James Arnold Taylor) guesses correctly about suggesting he wasn't as clueless about the pair's relationship as it seemed in The Revenge of the Sith.
