Welcome back to the Clone Wars Briefing series! Today we’re into the second episode of a five-episode arc. “Landing on Point Rain” is the fifth episode of season two of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The story in brief: More worlds are joining the Separatists, and the Republic is outmanned and outgunned. The Geonosians are back at work creating droids, so the Republic sends a fleet to re-take Geonosis, led by Anakin Skywalker with Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ki-Adi Mundi. (pic via Wookieepedia)
In the process, all three Jedi generals get shot down and miraculously survive. Ahsoka and Anakin then blow up a fortress while bickering like Laurel and Hardy; Ki-Adi Mundi and his clone troops use flamethowers to burn Geonosians alive; and Obi-Wan fondly reminisces about the last time he was on Geonosis, when he was chained to a pillar and stalked by monsters.
In the podcast, we’ve got sound clips of some of this fun, as well as a bit of an Easter egg in terms of dialogue that’s pulled from the classic Star Wars movies. Enjoy!
