Review: Unfinished Business: Star Wars The Clone Wars Final Season Episode 4

Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker Unfinished Business Star Wars The Clone Wars

Welcome to our review of the final episode of The Bad Batch arc of the final season of Star Wars The Clone Wars. Apologies for the delay in getting this out, we have needed to change a lot of what we do here at TPE in response to the Coronavirus. Reviews will be back on schedule starting tomorrow.

As always the review will be separated into spoiler-free and spoiler sections.

Spoiler Free

Separatist Base Unfinished Business Star Wars The Clone Wars Final Season

This episode is on the grandest scale we have seen so far from this season. More locations, bigger battles, and larger stakes for the entire war. The battles get progressively bigger as the episode continues on.

Overall this episode is about trust in wartime, mainly centered around Echo.

As the episode continues we begin to see threads of where the rest of the season will take the characters that will continue to appear beyond this arc, most notably Anakin Skywalker who we begin to see a lot more of in this episode.

The Bad Batch also continues to be one of the best new parts of the series, with interesting approaches to fighting that are new to the Star Wars franchise.

Without spoiling the ending let us just say we see an emotionally satisfying ending to the characters we leave behind in this arc that will propel the series closer to its end.

Spoiler Warning Below

Mace Windu and Obi Wan Kenobi Fight Unfinished Business Star Wars The Clone Wars

This episode sees the Republic facing a losing battle and sending Rex, Echo, and the Bad Batch off on a high stakes but risky mission to fight what may be a deciding battle in the war.

They aren't the only ones involved, with Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi in tow for a related mission.

Echo shows he is able to be of use due to his time under Separatist control

Anakin Skywalker Falls to the Dark Side Star Wars The Clone Wars Unfinished Business

The most important part of the episode for the rest of the season was the Anakin plotline. We see him begin to embrace un Jedi like actions in support of the Republic, hinting at his eventual decline to the dark side that will be explored through the rest of the season. If this decline keeps getting explored like this then this season may be a better look at the rise of Darth Vader than Revenge of the Sith.

Echo Joins the Bad Batch Star Wars The Clone Wars Final Season

The ending with Echo joining the Bad Batch also is emotionally satisfying and allows us to move on without feeling like any of the character's storylines were left unfinished.

Be sure to come back every Friday for reviews of new episodes from the final season of Star Wars The Clone Wars.
