All the while, Anakin and Padmé attempt to protect their secret.

Elsewhere, Jedi Generals infiltrate a Separatist base in hopes of concluding a protracted siege, and on Kashyyyk, as the clone troopers respond to Order 66, Master Quinlan Vos finds himself fighting against the army he led to victory.
