Star Wars: The Clone Wars launches the first part of a four-part episode arc with the premiere of “Sabotage” on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 9:30am on Cartoon Network. The episode finds Anakin and Ahsoka called back from the frontlines to investigate a deadly explosion at the Jedi Temple. Could a Jedi be responsible?
 
Trivia [Courtesy of Cartoon Network]:
 
· The four episodes of this arc are all named after Alfred Hitchcock films: Sabotage (1936), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), To Catch a Thief (1955) and The Wrong Man (1955).
 
· “I’m afraid one can become the other,” says Anakin, referring to past political idealists who have betrayed the Jedi, including Count Dooku and General Krell from Season Four. It’s ironic, given his future.
 
· Russo-ISC’s speech pattern, name, and habit of flipping his visor to punctuate his speech are all nods to David Caruso’s role in CSI Miami.
 
· In addition to an image of a crossed-out clone trooper, the Temple protestor signs said “The Jedi are corrupt,” “Stop cloning violence.”
