"The Wrong Jedi" is the twentieth and final episode of the fifth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is the hundred and eighth episode of the series overall. It was released on March 2, 2013 on Cartoon Network.


On trial for murder, Ahsoka faces her greatest challenge.


With Ahsoka Tano in custody, the Jedi Council is requested by Admiral Tarkin, on behalf of the Senate, to expel her from the Jedi Order so that she may be tried by the Republic military. Obi-Wan Kenobi urges the Council to refuses Tarkin's demands, insisting that they must stand with Ahsoka. Ki-Adi-Mundi and Saesee Tiin refuse, pointing out the circumstantial evidence against Ahsoka. Mace Windu adds that protecting Ahsoka could be seen as an act of opposition to the Senate. Yoda reluctantly agrees and has Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker brought to the Chamber of Judgement for trial.

At the hearing, Ahsoka is questioned about her supposed possession of the Nano-droid explosives and why she was seen working with Asajj Ventress. Anakin is enraged to learn that the Council already made their decision before the trial even began: Ahsoka is found guilty of both the bombing of the Jedi Temple and the murder of Letta Turmond, and is expelled from the Jedi Order so she may have a less-biased trial by the Senate. Anakin convinces Senator Padmé Amidala to serve as Ahsoka's defense, but then leaves for the Coruscant Underworld to find Ventress, whom he believes to be the one responsible.

Ventress fights Anakin without her lightsabers

Anakin located Ventress and, after a brief chase, demanded to know why Ahsoka was working with her. Ventress admitted that, originally, her only interest was the bounty on Ahsoka, until she realized that the two had much in common; they had both been abandoned by their masters. After she led Ahsoka to the warehouse where the nano-droids were stored, she was knocked unconscious and had her lightsabers stolen by an unknown attacker, presumably a Jedi as not just anyone could catch her off-guard. While Anakin refuses to believe her, Ventress also points out that she was not the only one that knew of Ahsoka's presence in the warehouse: Ahsoka had contacted her comrade, Barriss Offee, who told her of the location. Meanwhile, Ahsoka's hearing begins at the court in the Republic Military Base, headed by Chancellor Palpatine, with Padmé as the defense and Tarkin as prosecution, addressing her charges of sedition.

Barriss defends herself against Anakin.

Anakin returns to the Temple and questions Barriss of how she directed Ahsoka in the Underworld. Barriss realizes that he knows the truth and attacks him with Ventress's lightsabers. They then engage in a duel through the Temple, during which Barriss reveals she has lost all trust and belief in the fractured Order. The duel continues, with Anakin using both his and Barriss's own lightsaber, until several Jedi Temple Guards intervene. Barriss flees onto the training ground near the base of the Temple's central spire, where Anakin overpowers her and the Guards arrest her.

Back at Ahsoka's trial, a majority of the court members have found Ahsoka guilty of sedition, but just then, Anakin arrives with the Temple Guards escorting Barriss. The rogue Jedi admits that she was the one responsible for the crimes Ahsoka was accused of because she saw the war had turned both the Jedi and Republic into villains serving the Dark Side, and they themselves should be tried. Barriss is then taken into custody while Ahsoka is pardoned.

Ahsoka is praised for her courage during her journey.

Anakin, along with Obi-Wan, Plo Koon, Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Saesee Tiin and Yoda meet with Ahsoka to give her their apologies for accusing her and commend her for the great strength she showed in her efforts to prove her innocence. Yoda and Anakin invite her to return to the Order, but, to their shock, Ahsoka declines and exits the Temple. Anakin quickly runs after her and begs her to return, reminding her that the Order is her life. But Ahsoka tells him that because the Council did not trust her, she is uncertain of her own self and cannot remain in the Order―a belief Anakin relates to. She then leaves the Temple and sets out to follow her new path.
