Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
The Lost Missions (Season Six), Episode 13
Original Air Date: March 7, 2014
This arc was written by Christian Taylor, the same screenwriter who wrote the outstanding Mortis arc in Season Three. In many ways, this Yoda arc is a continuation of the same story, a similar exploration of the mystical side of the Star Wars universe. While it is stronger than most of the arcs in the series, it doesn't quite live up to Mortis. Part of it is our faith in Yoda. Apart from the fact that we know he survives, one never even truly doubts that Yoda will succumb to temptation whereas that's always a worry with Anakin. I enjoyed the worlds explored, particularly the visit to Dagobah, and this is the most development we get for Yoda in the series. But the basic story didn't pull me in the way Mortis did.
On Moraband, Yoda finally encounters Sifo-Dyas (or at least an image thereof), the long lost Jedi who pulled him into this adventure in the first place. I think another source of my disappointment here is that while the Sifo-Dyas story was merely a device, it is worthy of exploration on its own merits and it wasn't much. Sifo-Dyas is the one who authorized the creation of the Clone Army, against the Jedi Council's wishes at the time. The series leaves us with dangling threads - not entirely surprising in light of the abrupt cancellation but disappointing nonetheless.
