Story

At the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Anakin Skywalker is late. He runs through the halls to a dojo, where his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, practices against training remotes under the supervision of Jedi Master Tera Sinube. Other Jedi, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, are also present, and Obi-Wan sarcastically tells Anakin that he’s right on time, meaning late. After Anakin has arrived, Sinube activates a ray shield around the centre of the room, encasing Ahsoka as a set of new remotes designed to emulate battle droids surround her. Ahsoka is tested against the remotes, which she destroys quickly and easily.

Afterwards, in the hallway, Ahsoka is not pleased that Anakin doesn’t seem to be impressed by her results, on top of being late. Anakin admits that she’s right, he isn’t impressed, because in his mind, the test is far too easy. He tells Ahsoka that he doesn’t think she will reach her full potential if she’s only up against inferior remotes, and promises to arrange her a proper test.

Later, Ahsoka arrives at the military operations centre aboard a gunship, only to be told by Anakin that she’s late. He shows her into a large room where Clone Captain Rex is waiting with several clone troopers from the 501st Legion. Anakin explains to Ahsoka that he wants her to be good enough to hold out against Rex and the boys, because if she can do that, she can take anything the droids can throw at her. He adds that training against living opponents will be more difficult because they are less predictable than droids, so a key part of the training will be sensing who will fire first. The clones form a circle around Ahsoka, and she ignites her lightsaber. Ahsoka blocks the first stun shots, but is eventually taken out.

She wakes up on the floor as Anakin reassures Rex that Ahsoka will be fine. Anakin tells her she’s been unconscious for an hour, and that Jesse wanted to apologize for how hard he stunned her, which he does from across the room. The respite does not last long, however, as Anakin has another round start. The training session goes on for some time, as Ahsoka is stunned again and again and Anakin insists that she continue. At one point, Rex says he’s not sure how much more Ahsoka can take and wonders if they should stop. By then, Ahsoka is waking up faster, and the session continues on for a while.

The training sessions continue on other days and in other places. Some time later, after having built herself a shoto lightsaber, Ahsoka trains against the 501st, who now wear Phase II armor, in the hangar bay of a Jedi Cruiser, yet again as Anakin watches. Ahsoka was able to hold out against them for more than five minutes the last time, and employs acrobatic leaps and twists as she blocks more stun shots. The round ends with Rex stunning her.

Onboard another Republic cruiser, Ahsoka and Rex walk down a hallway choked with smoke and sparks, signs of heavy damage. They stop outside a door. Rex puts his helmet on and says he hopes all of that training Ahsoka did will pay off. He raises one of his blaster pistols to her back, as if holding her prisoner, and she puts her hands up to her head, agreeing with him. The door opens and the two of them walk into the hangar beyond, where Jesse and troops of the 332nd Division wait.
