'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Season 7 Episode 6's Anakin moment and Kessel setting make it a hit with fans
This article contains spoilers for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Season 7 Episode 6 'Deal No Deal'.
A brand-new episode of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' is here, continuing the story of everybody's favorite former Padawan Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein). Episode 6 'Deal No Deal' took the action to Kessel, a planet that's particularly notable from Han Solo's (Harrison Ford) iconic line about the Kessel Run.
It was a pretty solid episode with some touching emotional moments, including an almost meeting between Ahsoka and Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter), her former master from back when she was part of the Jedi. A number of fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the episode and overall, it appears the consensus is that this was a pretty great installment to the iconic show's final season.
One fan tweeted, "Loved how today’s new #CloneWars episode showed a different side of a familiar planet that was pretty cool to see, as well as having a great ROTJ callback!" And it was a beautiful looking episode, where some aerial shots looked straight out of a live-action movie."
"'Deal No Deal' was a decent episode," another fan wrote. "It was cool to see Kessel once again and the new characters began to grow on me (kind of). The highlight though was seeing Anakin on the deck of the cruiser and recognizing Ahsoka in the ship. I'm actually excited for next week."
"This Friday's episode of Clone Wars was much stronger than the last, with great dialogue and incorporation of the universe's lore," yet another fan noted. "However, at this point, I feel like the plot is still very thin. Hoping the final two episodes of the arc can round it off nicely."
That scene with Anakin and Ahsoka has hit the fans pretty close to the heart and quite a few seem pretty broken up over it. One fan, in particular, tweeted, "Clone Wars is taking an emotional toll on me that the trilogy movies wish they could."
And finally, one fan summed up writing, "This week's #CloneWars was a definite step up from last week. I look forward to seeing where it goes from here."
