    So there has always been a missing arc, reminds me of the mention that Fives was going to be in season 5 after all. Well, it is what it is. We may still get 22 episodes. Unfortunately there isn't much we can do except wait for an official announcement on whats going on with this. I think the Saturday move was coincidence since CN moved all the action shows with the exceptions of Dragons and Ninjago to Saturdays so that IMO was definately CN's move. Does anyone know if anything is going on with Ben 10 or DC Nation to indicate either of them might be ending their run soon?

    There may well be a long hiatus before the move.

    And I doubt CN will pay to get the show @Watto. Thats a typical Disney jack up.

    Fives was going to be a part of the clone arc and Matt Michnovetz mentioned on his Twitter that he wrote this arc and it has been delayed til next season.

    I think this time he is right. Personally if Clovis is out, it will be worth the wait... if we ever get to see it.

    Yes... it was revealed a few weeks ago by one of the writers on twitter that one of their highlights of 2012 was in a meeting planning out the end of the Clone Wars... transitioning it into episode III. So, likely they may have already written those episodes but that would depend on when that meeting was held in 2012. But certainly the end of the show has now been mapped. But it probably won't be for another few seasons as they are always working ahead by at least 2 seasons.

    I hope Revival is put back in its place as it was meant to air just before Eminence. Would be good to be able to watch that arc without changing discs!

    For a moment I read the above as re-airing Revival before airing the rest of the arc to "fill in" the missing episode! Whew! I love Revival but am ready to move forward.

    This season has been what Season 2 was in scheduling, just far worse. I am waiting for official confirmation, though. There's no official air date for the finale arc either but that doesn't mean it isn't coming. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Clovis appearing...

    This would be my preferred order:

    14,15,16: Mauldalore
    17,18,19: Clovis
    20,21,22: Ahsoka (If there's 4 episodes, cliffhanger perhaps?)

    At least there's Fives and Yoda as major arc characters to look forward to in Season 6...

    I still think if the show DOES end up moving to another network after this season, ending it on a big cliffhanger, in the middle of an arc is problematic. Disney wouldn't have the rights to air previous episodes, CN retains those rights. Which is possibly why a shorter season is likely occurring because of the potential of TCW moving networks, ergo preventing that problem.

    I agree with this, there isn't any reason to panic until we get something official. There is alot of rumor milling going on here. I was speculating the Clovis arc may have been pulled for S&P reasons early on. Now there is speculation there is indeed a missing arc here. I don't believe there has ever been official confirmation TCW is moving to Disney XD. We need to start sorting this out by going back and listing what anybody official said. Its really only Matt and Brent who have told us anything FIRC and they don't know. I'm going to stop now.

    If a move happens, I doubt CN will retain any rights to anything.

    Actually they would. They would be able to run any episodes they want of TCW from S1 to S5. They own the distribution rights to air those episodes. They've paid money for it so in that sense they 'own' them. I can ask someone in the business who might know what happens in this type of situation if this happens?

    THIS! THIS!


    Thank you @AkashKedavra_93 for keeping my hope going... I hope Clovis is in the season. The math looks correct!

    That should definitely be the airing order; no more fiddling around with the episodes.

    Wouldn't it be more like a contract? CN would have the airing right for a set number of years and they expire. I think its usually like 5 years or something like that. Anyways what probably going to happen if there is a move is Disney is gonna jack up the cost of the renewal of those rights and CN isn't going to pay it. There will be a blame game. Again however, official word would be great.

    TCW has an annual contract as far as I know.

    Actually, this reminds me of the Hondo situation, which is a perfect example of how episodes aren't shown according to the planned schedule. Way back during Celebration 5 in 2010, before Season 3 began, Filoni said we'd soon see Hondo in the repainted Slave 1. He was really excited about it. Obviously, we didn't get that in Season 3 -- or Season 4. So yeah, Boba Fett in the armor sounds like a similar scenario.

    Good point. They probably would expire but it all depends on what type of contract CN has. Something we will probably never know anyway.

    Speaking of the upcoming Ahsoka/Ventress-centric arc, I hope they make Ahsoka more powerful and I hope she doesn't get rescued again. Ever since the series started, she's been portrayed as WAAAYYY too weak with occasional exceptions.

    This made me laugh, because for the first two-and-a-half seasons, people were complaining she was too powerful for a padawan and a Mary Sue. :p

    I think she's at a good level. Powerful enough to defeat any and all battle droids, but can't stand toe-to-toe with Grievous or Ventress. They're supposed to be difficult to best by Anakin or Obi-Wan, so Ahsoka shouldn't be able to do so.

    And to that, my reaction is:

    On another note, I get the feeling that by the end of the upcoming four-parter, Ahsoka and Ventress will form a friendship. Who knows? Maybe they'll even be lovers. I frankly find the idea more preferable than Ahsoka's now-dead romantic relationship with Lux.

    I'd assume Ventress has better taste.

    There's already Rule 34 of that.

    Hell, there's Ahsoka/Ventress/Padme. :p
