"Chapter 7" is the seventh episode of the first season of Star Wars: Clone Wars. It is the seventh episode of the series overall. It was released on November 17, 2003 on Cartoon Network.


After denouncing her claims to be a Sith, Dooku challenges Asajj in combat and defeats her. But he is so impressed with her skills that he gives her an important assignment -- to assassinate Anakin Skywalker.


After Asajj Ventress claims to be a Sith, Count Dooku laughs at her, assuring her that that is impossible. Angered, Asajj charges him, but is rendered unconscious by a blast of his Force lightning.

Asajj awakens in her large, elaborately-furnished penthouse, her two lightsabers nearby in a silver tray. As soon as she takes them up, Dooku suddenly appears and instantly attacks. A long, brutal fight ensues, in which Dooku demonstrates obvious fighting superiority. Asajj is eventually defeated—her lightsabers having been destroyed by Dooku—and driven to the ground by a Force Push. Left at the point of his blade, she asks him to finish her off.

At that point, a mobile hologram unit enters the room, making its way down the stairs. Dooku introduces her to Darth Sidious, his master. Sidious applauds her efforts, and personally gives her first mission for the Sith: hunt down and kill Anakin Skywalker.

Dooku then presents Asajj with both a pair of new lightsabers, that once belonged to his former apprentice, as well as a starfighter. As she flies off to complete her task, Dooku remarks that he is confident in her success. Sidious replies that her success or failure is unimportant—the point is to test Skywalker.









  • Like the previous episode, this one takes place several weeks before the previous five episodes.
  • Although it is not stated in the episode, the lightsabers that Dooku gives Asajj were taken from his former Padawan, Komari Vosa, whom he slew.
