ContinuityEdit

Following the original airing order from Star Wars Insider 134, "An Old Friend" was to be the fifth episode of Season Five,[5] but this was later revised to "The Gathering" with an update to Cartoon Network's online schedule.[6] Along with the episodes "The Rise of Clovis" and "Crisis at the Heart," "An Old Friend" was pushed back later in the broadcast order.[7] It did not air in Season Five as originally scheduled.

According to Series Writer Brent Friedman, the story arc that "An Old Friend" is a part of initially included the episode "A Friend in Need," but the arc was later split between seasons, with "A Friend in Need" being released with the series' fourth season.[8]

According to the official Databank, Padmé Amidala's handmaiden Teckla Minnau survived the Clone Wars and went on to marry a writer while serving as handmaiden to Queen Kylantha.[9] However, "An Old Friend" ignored this previous continuity and depicted Minnau's death on Scipio.

Retrieved on November 23, 2013. “[starting around 27:39] In the early days of The Clone Wars, if you remember, there were—sometimes you'd get a two-episode arc, and then the next season there'd be the prequel to that arc. So I think that Clovis arc was actually part of a four-episode arc, but it was broken up into pieces. There was like that one standalone episode that was the standalone episode in Season Five? If I remember correctly. The one… it's set in the snow? With Ahsoka and Lux.”
