Pete Morrison of Lightsaber Rattling brought to my attention that StarWars.com has brief character entries for The Clone Wars season 4 episode 9 Plan of Dissent and a synopsis that tells us a bit more about what may happen to our clone heroes.
Here’s the synopsis:
After the Republic conquers an Umbaran airbase, General Krell orders Rex and his men on towards the heavily fortified capital. Realizing there’s a better plan, several clone troopers disobey orders to carry out a rogue, covert operation.
Here’s the fortune cookie:
“The ignorant man follows, the wise man leads.”
Here are the various character entries:
For General Krell:
General Krell continues to devise costly tactics that risk the lives of the clones, despite being presented with seemingly safer alternatives. He refuses to listen to an idea proposed by Rex and Fives to destroy an orbital Separatist supply ship, instead sticking to his original plan of an overland assault.
For Captain Rex:
Clone Captain Rex is torn between his duty to follow orders, and his commitment to keeping his troops safe. General Krell’s commands seem to needlessly risk the lives of the 501st, and some of the troops are willing to defy orders to keep their brothers safe.
The pragmatic Jesse has been studying the captured Umbaran starfighters at the airbase, for potential use in a covert, rogue operation.
Hardcase got a taste of the Umbaran starfighters when he stole one to provide much needed air support for the 501st troopers. Now, he’s getting the hang of the tricky fighters.
Fives has had it with Krell’s misguided command. He knows of a better alternative to capture the Umbaran capital, and will go to any length to carry out his forbidden plan.

I hope these episodes have happy endings, but I have a bad feeling about this…..
The episode synopsis for the remaining two episodes in the Umbara arc have been released on TV guides’ website! Below are the summaries, which contain some very interesting information about possible conclusions for the arc. (Beware of spoilers!)
The first is for episode 408, Plan of Dissent
“The clones disobey orders and plan to take out a supply ship in “Plan of Dissent.”
So, now we may see some rebellion to Krell’s leadership that has been hinted at throughout the arc. (Original article here) The second summary, and final episode of the arc, is episode 409, The Carnage of Krell.
“Rex stands up for his men, who face execution for disobeying Pong Krell.”
Wow! There are so many ways this could play out! Could we see the end of Krell, or perhaps the end of Rex? Since it says that Rex is trying to save his men, I’m guessing that Fives could also be executed. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! (Original article here)
