Plot summaryEdit

Episode 20
DEATH TRAP
Calm before the storm! A rare and
welcome respite from endless battle
awaits Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker
and Mace Windu as they travel through
deep space aboard the Jedi cruiser
Endurance. Preparing to rendezvous
with a Republic frigate, the Jedi remain
unaware of a deadly peril lying hidden
in their midst....

A squad of chronologically six year old clones are briefed by a more experienced trooper en route on their journey to the Star Destroyer Endurance. Afterward, several of the clones (each with different haircuts) tease their newest member, a young recruit who calls himself "Lucky", before being reprimanded by another clone who appears to be the group's leader.

Upon arrival, the young soldiers are greeted by Jedi Generals Mace Windu and Anakin Skywalker. Subsequently, the clones are given opportunities to demonstrate their training through target practice using explosive skeet; everyone misses their targets until "Lucky" (Boba Fett) is called forward and immediately awes all present by accurately hitting three targets without wasting a shot.

Resuming their tour of the ship, Boba quickly strays away from his group and manages to bluff his way into Mace Windu's quarters where he stealthily installs a bomb triggered by stepping through a laser in the doorway. Unfortunately for Fett, Mace Windu is called away only seconds before triggering the trap and a hapless clone trooper is killed in his place.

The entire ship is placed under alert and as a result, Boba is instructed via comlink to sabotage the reactor core and thus kill everyone, although he exhibits some hesitation. Boba then once again sneaks away from his group but ends up being caught by an unsuspecting trooper who decides to call for security. After a brief scuffle, Boba stuns the clone with his own blaster and shoots the core command console. Much of the hull is immediately destroyed in an explosion and the Jedi are almost sucked into space before the gaping holes are sealed off. Realizing the Endurance is critically damaged beyond repair, the Jedi and most of the surviving crew then choose to abandon ship. However, the admiral stubbornly refuses and stays onboard along with Ponds. The young clones—including Boba—are then jettisoned in an escape pod, but Boba's sabotage causes them to lose control and stray far from the other pods.

Eventually the pod is discovered by Slave I with Aurra Sing and Bossk aboard. Boba is revealed to be the traitor and is given the choice by Sing to go with the clones or go with them. Muttering an apology, he steps aboard the ship as Jax says he'll regret this. The pod drifted into space. Mere seconds after Slave I leaves, Anakin and Mace arrive to find the cadets unharmed. Meanwhile, Admiral Kilian attempts to land the badly damaged Endurance upon the surface of the nearby planet Vanqor.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the scene where Boba Fett gets caught infiltrating the Endurance's engine room, he asks if the clone trooper is holding a DC-15A, to which the trooper replies in the affirmative. However, the blaster was, in fact, a DC-15S.

When Death Trap was aired in Australia on the 9th June, 2011, the scene where a Clone trooper was blown up entering Mace Windu's quarters and the scene where Boba hits a Clone Trooper with a DC-15S blaster were cut out of the episode. This could have been for rating reasons, or because of a technical issue.
