Miraj, trying to draw Anakin to her side, points out that as a Jedi and servant of the Republic, he is a virtual slave already.She offers to free his friends if he joins her willingly; an offer which leaves Anakin thinking.At the auction, Roshti is the first slave to be put on offer, as a sample of the Togrutan people.Suddenly, the Queen announces a special guest, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Before they disembark, they disguise themselves and form two teams: Obi-Wan and Rex are to find out the location of the kidnapped Togruta colonists, while Anakin and Ahsoka, disguised as master and slave respectively, go to meet the Zygerrian queen.
The scene in which Anakin salutes to R2 to signal him to eject his lightsaber is an homage to Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, with the characters taking place of the movie's lead characters.
Obi-Wan is in Han's place, Rex is in Lando's place, Anakin is in Luke's, the Queen is in Jabba's, Ahsoka is in Leia's and Artoo is consistent with his own movie placement.
Unable to learn from him where the other colonists have gone, Obi-Wan decides to free him first.
However, the alerted guards manage to stop and capture Obi-Wan and Roshti, while Rex escapes.
