|Rex keeping his eyes on Tarkin|
Episode Guide Synopsis:
With freed prisoners in their possession and the brutal warden attempting desperately to thwart them, Obi-Wan and Anakin search for a way out of the Citadel and back to Coruscant. The prison, however, has more traps, perils and pitfalls in s tore for them than they had imagined and they must work past their differences if they are to escape.This episode is written by Matt Michnovetz and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell and is the second part of the three part Citadel story arc. Part one "The Citadel" was also written by Matt Michnovetz. Its nice for the sake of the story to have one lead writer work on these story arcs, this is the same pattern we saw with Katie Lucas in the Savage Opress/Nightsisters arc and Christian Taylor with the Mortis arc. If the pattern holds Matt should also be the writer of the arc's concluding episode (3.20) "Citadel Rescue."
We don't get any suprises in the Cast or Location list, other then the fact that Coruscant will appear. This could be the call for help from the strike team and the scrambling of the rescue operation for "Citadel Rescue," but I hold out hope we will see some Tarkin/Palpatine interaction in one of these episodes. This interaction is something we didn't get to see in Episode IV, but would be really cool.
Sounds like our noble heroes will have to make nice with Tarkin in order to get out of the Citadel.
