Plot summary

Episode 6
The final surge. Having learned of warlord
Poggle the Lesser's plot to rebuild a
Separatist droid foundry on Geonosis, Jedi
Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan,
Ahsoka Tano, prepare to assault this heavily-
fortified installation. Their mission: destroy the
factory at all costs. Anticipating stiff resistance,
Republic commanders send Jedi Master
Luminara Unduli and her Padawan, Barriss
Offee, to reinforce the attack. But time runs
short for our intrepid heroes as the dreaded
droid mill nears completion....

The Republic army is pushing forward towards the massive droid foundry after destroying the main shield generator. Unduli's squadron of gunships is forced to land south of Skywalker's position. Meanwhile, Tano is briefing her clone squad on the battle plan to take control of the approaching bridge by destroying the gun emplacements on the other side, but Skywalker keeps finishing her sentences. Once the briefing is over, she demands of him why he keeps interrupting her, which makes her believe that he doesn't trust her. Skywalker defends himself by saying that he just wants to get the job done right, but this only strengthens Tano's irritation. They are arguing as Unduli and Offee arrive to discuss the plan of attack.

The four Jedi then analyze the tactical data on the droid factory. Skywalker boldly suggests a frontal attack, but Unduli says that a frontal assault would be too risky. She suggests to infiltrate the catacombs beneath the factory, accessible through the bottom of the gorge, entering the foundry and destroying its main reactor with explosives. Unduli opts that she and Skywalker keep Poggle the Lesser's forces occupied, while the Padawans infiltrate the factory. Skywalker believes that Tano is not ready for a mission like this, despite her insistence. As the Padawans take off, Unduli asks Skywalker as to why he doesn't want Tano participating, to which he doesn't answer. They then prepare a frontal assault by having their troops move straight towards the bridge. Unfortunately, they fall into a trap, as Geonosians start coming out of the surrounding spires, leaving their forces in a deadlock.

Down below, the Padawans have successfully infiltrated the catacombs. They sneak past a wall filled with sleeping Geonosians, and proceed carefully, but are unable to avoid awakening one Geonosian, who follows them through the catacombs from that point onward.

On the surface, as the Jedi continue to push forward, Poggle is advised by his tactical droid to set loose the super tanks, equipped with ray shielded armor powerful enough to stand against Republic artillery.

Meanwhile, the Padawans make it to the factory's main reactor and start placing explosives around it. However, the Geonosian they woke up had alerted Poggle, who sent one super tank and many Geonosian warriors to the reactor room. The warriors begin picking their bombs off the reactor while the tank starts firing at them. Tano attempts to stop the Geonosians by grabbing on to two winged warriors, but they cause her to slam against the reactor, knocking her unconscious. As the Geonosians escape into the catacombs, Offee is left with a choice: the bombs or Tano's life.

Outside, the super tanks' mortar cannons make short work of the clone forces. Skywalker orders a retreat as he and Unduli plant bombs on the underside of the bridge the tanks are on, before detonating them. They then have to face the second wave of battle droids without any heavy artillery.

Inside the factory, Offee attacks the super tank and successfully takes control of the tank when Tano wakes up. They decide to use the tank to destroy the reactor, knowing that they won't survive. They contact Skywalker and tell him about their plan. He refuses, but Tano turns off her comlink. The explosion destroys the factory, causing the spire it was built in to collapse on the droids attacking the Masters and the clone army. The tank's heavy armor protects the Padawans from the massive explosion. After failing to contact the Padawans on their comlink, Unduli believes they are dead, but Skywalker determinedly orders that the rubble be moved. Deep below the surface, in the cockpit of the super tank, Tano and Offee struggle to stay conscious. In an effort to contact her master, Tano fashions a communicator out of a power cell from the tank. Receiving the signal, Skywalker deduces where it came from and rushes over to a pile of debris. The Masters then telekinetically lift the debris off the tank, freeing their Padawans. Unduli admits to Tano that her master never lost faith in her.
