In the middle of a routine shopping trip on Coruscant, C-3PO is abducted by bounty hunter Cad Bane. Soon, both Threepio and his astromech counterpart R2-D2 find themselves pawns in Bane’s plan to free Ziro the Hutt from a heavily guarded prison in the heart of the Republic. The hapless droids are once again integral in events that threaten to unravel the future of the galaxy in Evil Plans — an all-new episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS airing at 9:00pm ET/PT Friday, November 5th on Cartoon Network.
Set up by the ending scene in Assassin two weeks ago, that failed attempt on Padme Amidala’s life by the bounty hunter Aurra Sing was correctly blamed on Ziro the Hutt who hired Sing to kill the Senator. Vowing revenge after Anakin Skywalker’s padawan learner Ahsoka Tano tricked a confession out of Ziro, the Hutt’s influence outside of his prison cell continues to spread like a plague in Coruscant’s underworld. This week, bounty hunter Cad Bane attempts to use Padme’s own protocol droid C-3PO against her by capturing and torturing the golden droid to gain plan designs of the Senate building.
