Spoilers for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Season 7 Episode 9 'Old Friends, Not Forgotten'
The seventh and final season of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' is back with an epic new episode that more than makes up for the last arc. The Siege of Mandalore arc has begun, aligning the show with 'Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith' and the fans are ecstatic.
Season 7 Episode 9 'Old Friends, Not Forgotten' was an amazing story with plenty of action and some truly heartwarming moments. Here's what the fans have been saying on Twitter:
"Finally! We got the Anakin/Ahsoka reunion," one fan tweeted. "It was perfect! This is what we were waiting for for half a decade. Anakin is trying so hard to please her. They were sweet. Also, Rex and the clones were great too. The paint scene was touching and Rex got promoted!"
Another fan declared, "That was hands down the best #CloneWars episode ever. #TheSiegeOfmandalore will be my favorite thing in all of Star Wars once this is over. That's what I call a perfect 20/10 episode. Also who else loves Almec's armor?? I just loved the gold mixed with the green."
"I think this is one of the best episodes of #CloneWars so far...and there are still 3 episodes left," another fan commented. "The feels will kill me."
Over to the episode's Reddit discussion thread on StarWars, the fans are losing their minds over how spectacular the episode was, especially with the new cinematic intro complete with the original 'Star Wars' theme music.
"This whole episode is why I love Clone Wars so much: Great character relationships, awesome battle scenes, amazing attention to detail, references to other works of Star Wars, and new stuff I never knew I wanted," one fan declared. "Sad that there are only three more episodes left."
Another fan wrote, "29 minutes long? OG intro narration? Original cinematic theme? Gotdamn this is nice."
"How tf am I supposed to survive the next week until part 2!?" Yet another fan wrote. "Holy s***, just the intro alone was so freakin amazing, Grievous looks so good and it feels like the animation quality got even better. So many awesome moments and the Maul reveal at the end... I don't know what to say, I'm speechless. Sam Witwer didn't exaggerate when he said that it's 'the best we've ever done'."
New episodes of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Season 7 drop on Disney+ every Friday.
