Padmé Amidala and Captain Gregar Typho watch the Jedi ice cave with their electrobinoculars. Amidala and R2-D2 are concerned that Yoda has not returned, but Typho and C-3PO assure her that the Jedi Master will be fine. When Typho returns to the ship to check the communications array, Amidala heads off after Master Yoda, telling the two droids that they will accompany her. Artoo’s sensors pick up multiple objects approaching, and the trio dive for cover as a barrage of laser fire blasts out of the blizzard. Amidala throws her cloak out as a decoy, and then fires her blaster, destroying the cloaked chameleon droid. However, Artoo says that there are two more. With this, she asks 3PO if he can get her coat but actually carelessly using him as a decoy. All of a sudden, the other two appear and open fire upon C-3PO, while Amidala uses a thermal detonator to destroy the remaining two droids.
Master Yoda appears out of the snowstorm with Luminara Unduli and Barriss Offee. The Jedi are safe, but the cave temple has been nearly destroyed. Master Yoda wonders how the temple’s location was known. Artoo patches into one of the chameleon droids, and provides the answer: Count Dooku.
