Troubled by Asajj Ventress’ growing prowess with the dark side of the Force, Darth Sidious commands Count Dooku to eliminate her. But Ventress survives Dooku’s assassination attempt, and the jilted former apprentice vows to take revenge, enlisting the aid of her kinswomen – the mystical Nightsisters of Dathomir – in her sinister scheme. Evil clashes with evil and sparks fly – igniting the fuse for the launch of the explosive second half of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Season Three. Darkness falls and the end begins with Nightsisters, an all-new episode debuting at an ALL-NEW TIME at 8:30pm ET/PT Friday, January 7th on Cartoon Network.
This three-episode story arc detailing Asajj Ventress’ rise and fall as Count Dooku’s Sith apprentice begins, as previewed by FilmEdge in our screening recap from last month. This arc demonstrates just how treacherous and lethally dangerous it gets for practitioners of the Dark Side of the Force as Ventress takes the brunt of such punishment. But never count her out as she returns to her mysterious roots and seeks recovery and revenge with the aid of the Nightsister witches on Dathomir.
