Have you ever wanted to see more of Kessel, the planet which made its live-action debut in Solo: A Star Wars Story when Han and co. had to steal crates of unrefined spice? Well, this sixth episode of The Clone Wars, which stands as the halfway mark of the final season, did so as Ahsoka’s run-in with Coruscant crooks, Rafa and Trace led them to the planet.
We got to see a brand new location of Kessel, this lush landscape showcasing the true beauty of the planet ravaged by crime syndicates for the planet’s natural production of spice.
That, however, was pretty much the only highlight of this episode. I’m not saying the episode was bad because it wasn’t, but there was a level of riveting storytelling that this episode did not have, leaving me begging for something a little more substantial.
But, these two episodes alone are better than the entire Bad Batch arc, revealing how special and interesting Ahsoka and her adventures can be.
We’ll see what happens next week. Hopefully, we get to see Tano use those new lightsabers of hers.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.
