Source: Star Wars YouTube Channel
Lucasfilm (via the Official YouTube Star Wars channel) released a promo for the season 5 finale for its weekly animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The finale is actually part of a four-part arc that starts with this week's "Sabotage" in which the Jedi temple is the scene of a bombing attack:
The following gives the official synopses leading up to the final episode (note if you don't want to be spoiled about anything, read no further):
Saturday, Feb. 9: "Sabotage"
Anakin and Ahsoka are called are back to the Jedi Temple to investigate an explosion at the Temple that killed many innocent workers as well as Jedi in a hangar bay. With suspicions rising that it may have been the work of a Jedi turned to the dark side, the Jedi are relieved when the investigation leads them to arrest Letta Turmond, a temple worker's wife.
Saturday, Feb. 16: "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much"
While Ahsoka meets with Letta Turmond alone, Letta is mysteriously killed by a force unknown. Ahsoka is quikly arrested and despite her protests, is being accused of the murder. Anakin argues her innocence as Ahsoka sees no other alternative but to escape into the underworld of Coruscant to hunt for proof of her innocence.
Saturday, Feb. 23: "To Catch a Jedi"
Ahsoka is on the run from the Republic in the deepest levels of the Coruscantt underworld. There she makes a bargain with (the now Bounty Hunter) Asajj Ventress, who leads her to a warehouse where Ahsoka believes she will find her answers. Hunted by Anakin Skywalker and Plo Koon, Ahsoka is unknowingly set up by the person responsible for the death of Letta and is easily captured by the pursuing forces while the unknown villain escapes without being seen.
The finale is titled "The Wrong Jedi" and will air on March 2, 2013. Ths short summary for this reads:
With Ahsoka on the run, Anakin, who continues to believe in Ahsoka's innocence, hunts for the truth.
The folks producing Star Wars: The Clone Wars promised this season would be dark. So far, it's lived up to it. Can it get darker?
We'll find out. After Lucasfilm was bought out by Disney, this could be the last of this series (though there is talk of it moving to a Disney channel).
