'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' preview: A Jedi saboteur?

It doesn't appear that things will slow down after last week's exciting and deadly episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

As you can see in the clip above, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano are involved in a dogfight when Anakin's ship is attacked by buzz droids. And that's not even the main plot of "Sabotage," airing at 8:30 a.m. CT Feb. 9 on Cartoon Network.

The duo is called back from the frontlines and sent to investigate a deadly bombing at a Jedi Temple. When they are told the blast may have been the handiwork of a Jedi, Anakin can't help but remember past political idealists who have betrayed the Jedi, including Count Dooku and General Krell from Season 4.

"I'm afraid one can become the other," he says.

It's ironic, given what the future holds for Skywalker.

"Sabotage" is the first of a four-episode arc that had been titled after Alfred Hitchcock films: "Sabotage" (1936), "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1934), "To Catch a Thief" (1955) and "The Wrong Man" (1955).

Here's more episode trivia from Lucasfilm:

  • Russo-ISC's speech pattern, name, and habit of flipping his visor to punctuate his speech are all nods to David Caruso's role in "CSI Miami."
  • In addition to an image of a crossed-out clone trooper, the Temple protestor signs say "The Jedi are corrupt" and "Stop cloning violence."
