Star Wars: The Clone WarsIn the first of this four-part episode arc on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Anakin and Ahsoka are called back from the frontlines to investigate a deadly explosion at the Jedi Temple. Clues surface that a Jedi might have been responsible for the blast in "Sabotage," Saturday, February 9th at 9:30 a.m. ET on Cartoon Network.

Episode Trivia:

  • The four episodes of this arc are all named after Alfred Hitchcock films: Sabotage (1936), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), To Catch a Thief (1955) and The Wrong Man (1955).
  • "I'm afraid one can become the other," says Anakin, referring to past political idealists who have betrayed the Jedi, including Count Dooku and General Krell from Season Four. It's ironic, given his future.
  • 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 said, "The Jedi are corrupt," "Stop cloning violence."
