The preview video for next week's episode of The Clone Wars, "The Hidden Enemy" (Ep. #16), is now online at the main site.
Synopsis from Starwars.com: "Anakin and Obi-Wan discover evidence of a traitor amongst their ranks while attempting to lead Republic forces to liberate the planet of Christophsis from a Separatist siege."
UPDATE: From Lucasfilm:
Captain Rex and Commander Cody must uncover a traitor in an all-new episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS
Captain Rex and Commander Cody must find the traitor in their ranks in ?Hidden Enemy,? an all-new episode of the hit animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Feb. 6, on Cartoon Network.
In the episode, the clones discover evidence that one of their brothers is leaking information to the enemy. Faced with the betrayal, Cody and Rex must uncover the spy before he is able to thwart the Republic?s efforts to liberate Christophsis from a Separatist siege.
Director Steward Lee and writer Drew Greenberg were both drawn to the chance to look at the first break in the ranks of the clones ? an ominous sign of things to come.
?I thought it was interesting because the clone?s logic is understandable,? Lee says. ?He no longer wants to be just a slave to the Jedi, and wants to try and break that infrastructure. He thinks he?s doing the right thing for all the clones and that the sacrifice is worth it.?
?It?s all about the brotherhood, and how far those boundaries stretch,? Greenberg adds. ?Even the guy who turns out to be the bad guy makes the case that he was doing it for his brothers. This is about what it means to be a clone and what it means to be part of that brotherhood.?
?If one Clone can break from his brothers, and what he is bred for as a soldier of the Republic, and act on his own," Lee says, " how many more would do the same? This creates an interesting beginning of something to come.?
