I'm usually not a huge fan of episodes heavy on politicking and plotting, but in this case the turgidity of the whole Banking Clan corruption storyline actually served as a really effective backdrop for the real centrepiece of the episode, Skywalker's final explosion into a jealous rage at seeing the insipid Clovis trying to put the moves, yet again, on his beloved Padmé.

"The Clone Wars" has featured many an epic battle, from star-fighter dogfights to lightsaber duels to gritty bounty hunter shoot 'em ups, but few have compared in passion and intensity with the bare-knuckle brawl between the Jedi "Chosen One" overcome by pain and jealousy and his (secret) wife's suitor. Kudos to the voice director and animators for bringing both that scene to gripping life, and also the heart-rending breakup sequence that followed.

8/10
