Episode:  Season 3 Episode 6: The Academy

"Episode Summary: Ahsoka is assigned to teach a class at a leadership academy on Mandalore. Soon after she arrives, Duchess Satine’s zealous nephew — Korkie — and his classmates uncover a nefarious plot. Prime Minister Almec is revealed to be an active part of the black market conspiracy on Mandalore, and he attempts to permanently silence Duchess Satine and the cadets before they expose his corruption. Ahsoka and the cadets defeat Almec before he can succeed."

The Moment: Ahsoka becomes the teacher and instructs cadets not only in the classroom, but in actual real-life application.

Why It’s Memorable: The growth and maturity of Ahoska are shown by the Togruta with her mentoring skills on full display. I love how the youngsters have the same moral code as Ahsoka and even break the rules to bring justice to those who abuse their power.

This episode is a great lesson for all, especially for the younger generation, to stand up to evil and oppression, no matter what the cost.

Ahsoka and Anakin have much in common, showing in this episode lessons learned from her master leading up to this, with their struggle against corruption and their goal of eliminating it from the galaxy.

Anytime we see the world of Mandalore, it makes my heart sing. I really hope that we get more stories on its past, which the Clone Wars and Rebels do quite a bit of when they can. I would love to see the past conflict of the Jedi and Mandos which dates back thousands of years.
