The Clone Wars 1.09: Cloak of Darkness

Our Review

“Cloak of Darkness” is one of the most interesting episodes so far in Season 1 of the Clone Wars. It’s the first time we’ve actually seen (spoiler alert) the bad guys succeeding at their goals. It also shines a different light on Asajj Ventress, who is legitimately creepy in this episode. The way she laughs when fighting Luminara and Ahsoka tells us that she’s either deadly or insane, or both.

This episode has a lot that happens in it, and it doesn’t slow down, unlike the previous episode. This episode also sports one of the best lightsaber battles so far. The entire episode felt faster and more intense, with a very epic air to it. It felt like Star Wars. And that, I think, is the highest compliment that I can give it.
