Ahsoka and the Martez sisters get themselves into a bit of trouble in the latest episode of The Clone Wars, and while it may not have been overly entertaining, the episode is key in setting up major events to come.
Head on down below to check out our full recap and review.
Hey now fans of the Tano, Matt Heywood here from the Star Wars Time Show to recap and review The Clone Wars: Deal No Deal, aka, S7E6.
The episode begins with Ahsoka and Trace talking about life, with Tano giving a nice nod to her Sky Guy when she mentions attending Skywalker academy. After their talk, Ahsoka agrees to hang around with the Martez sisters for a bit longer.
Rafa shows up and tells Trace that she needs her and the Silver Angel for a job, so the ladies head out, but not before Rafa feels Ahsoka out, because she clearly doesn’t like her influence on Trace.
As they leave Coruscant, Trace pilots them into a military flying lane, which catches the attention of Wulf Yularen and General Skywalker. Thanks to Anakin sensing Ahsoka’s presence through the Force, he clears the Angel to move along.
The ladies arrive at Kessel, the not shitty part apparently, and meet with an envoy from the Yaruba family. Ahsoka eventually realizes that Rafa took on a job to run spice for the Yaruba’s to the Pykes, so she’s quite concerned over what the older Martez has gotten everyone into.
After picking up the spice, they head off to Obah Diah to give it to Marg Krim, the head of the Pyke crime syndicate. This really freak Ahsoka out, and after she and Rafa argue about what to do with the spice, Trace dumps it like Han Solo, which only makes their situation worse.
Upon arriving on Obah Diah, Ahsoka uses a Jedi Mind Trick on Krim to get him to let them go with their credits without inspecting the shipment, but his lieutenant gets suspicious and blasts open a crate, but he doesn’t find any spice inside.
He has the Silver Angel locked in place with a tractor beam before the episode cuts to the credits.
Alright, so this wasn’t the best episode of season seven so far, which is mostly due to it being a pure setup type of episode for major events to come.
We discussed how the season will play out on our podcast thanks to the reveal of future episode descriptions, so while this episode may have seemed a bit dull and nothing really happened, I can assure you it was needed to get pieces in position for the big final narrative payoff.
You see, by getting Ahsoka and the Martez sisters mixed up with the Pykes, a major crime syndicate, it opens the door for Maul’s return on the show. At this time he’s running the Shadow Collective, which the Pykes joined, so you can now bank on him getting involved in some form or fashion with the Pyke’s new prisoners.
This in turn will lead to Ahsoka, Anakin, and Kenobi reuniting to figure out how to best deal with Maul, the Collective, and their control of Mandalore.
So, while this particular entry may have been a bit ho-hum, it was necessary to say the least.
I will say that I loved the moment that Anakin and Ahsoka shared in this episode, because it showed how strong their bond is, and it also reminded me of when Vader lets the Rebel’s shuttle land on Endor because he sensed Luke was on it. Guess I should have put that in my Easter Egg and Reference video, but at least I mentioned it here.

While this episode may not be overly exciting, it was needed to set up what should be the best run of Clone Wars episodes to date.
