Hitting shelves and entering mailboxes is the latest issue of the Official Star Wars magazine #114.
Inside among various layers of interviews and Q&A segments can be found the titles of the next two Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes, both of which will be broad casted back-to-back on January 1st.
The first episode title given, coming in at number 2.9 is "Grievous Intrigue". Written by Ben Edlund who is most notable for his work on the cult classic television show Firefly as well as work in The Tick, Supernatural and Angel, this episode's summary is as follows; After an ly encounter with a prominent member of the Jedi Council, the Jedi resolve to stop General Grievous once and for all.
This summary rose a question for me; who is the Jedi Council member? At the end of the latest episode, 2.8 "Brain Invaders", a short preview was given for a future episode, which I can only assume is Grievous Intrigue. In the preview a Zabrak Jedi can be seen on a Venator-class Star Destroyer bridge. This Jedi is very similar to Eeth Koth in appearance, but past Expanded Universe sources (Inside the Worlds Of Attack Of The Clones) have stated that he perished in the fighting on Geonosis. Agen Kolar, is alive and well, but does not bear a resemblance to the Jedi seen in the preview nearly as much as Eeth Koth does. Will TCW push aside another bit of EU lore with this next episode? Personally I wouldn't mind either way, but we'll just have to wait and see...
The next episode title given is #2.10 "The Deserter". Written by Carl Ellsworth, the writer of the yet to be released movie remake of Red Dawn, theis episode's summary is as follows; Obi-Wan Kenobi leads a squadron of clone troopers as the search for Grievous intensifies, but who is the mysterious Cut Lawquane?
Be sure to watch The Clone Wars on Friday, January 1st when these questions will be answered! And don't forget to visit http://www.titanmagazines.com/ to sign up for Star Wars Insider magazine!
