Now, for a special advance preview of Star Wars The Clone Wars Shroud Of Darkness, Episode 2.1 Forceful Beings.
Advancing during a break in the fierce blizzards, which ravage the surface of Alzoc III, the Separatist droid army moves quickly to surround the few surviving Republic troopers.
Deflecting fire from the advancing droids Plo questions, “Where are the gunships commander?”. “Still 12 clicks out, General. The snow is slowing their progress.”, Wolffe shouts to be heard over the cacophony of the battle.
Kit warns, “Not the Separatist’s. Look, reinforcements coming in from the east!”.
Grievous advances across the snow covered wasteland, towards the besieged Republic forces.
Plo gravely states, “I’ll deal with this.”.
Plo rushes out to meet the advancing General, summoning the power of the force...
... allowing the Jedi Master to quickly dispatch Grievous' bodyguards.
Grievous laughs, “Master -aghh- Koon, a bold move , but a foolish one.”. Plo gravely answers, “That remains to be seen.”.
Grievous continues, “I have been trained in your Jedi arts by Count Dooku -aghh- himself, you are no match for me Jedi scum!”.
Plo tears off the mask protecting his face from the bitter cold, coming face to face with the cyborg he replies, “The Jedi arts are far greater than learning to hack away with a lightsaber, Grievous. A truly powerful Jedi, or Sith, could win a battle without drawing their weapon. The ability to defeat one’s opponent with a lightsaber is insignificant next to the potential of the Force.”. Grievous laughs, “Than prove it Jedi, -aghh- discard your lightsaber and use your precious force to defeat me!”.
Plo deactivates his lightsaber, standing defenselessness before the cyborg warrior.
Meanwhile, as the droids continue to advance Wolffe warns, “We can’t hold out much longer!”.
Kit calmly replies, “We won’t have to!”.
Just then, fire rips through an advancing column of droids...
... as a Republic Gunship roars over the battlefield!
The gunship sets down behind the Republic lines, prompting Commander Wolffe to order, “Everyone in, double time!”.
As the Gunship climbs above the snow bank, Kit orders, “Warthog, bring us in low near General Koon.”.
“Copy that General.”, Warthog answers from the cockpit.
Advancing on the unarmed Jedi Grievous warns Plo, “There is no escape Jedi, I am your death!”.
Plo dodges a savage blow while reciting, “There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.”.
Plo continues, “There is no passion, there is serenity.”, unleashing a mighty force push...
... hurling Grievous into a nearby column of ice.
Plo leaps aboard the hovering gunship, looking down at Grievous from the gunship Plo concludes, “There is no death, there is only the Force.”.
The gunship speeds away, leaving Grievous alone.... TO BE CONTINUED
