Why is Ahsoka's new look in the episode "Heroes on both sides", when it takes place before episodes in which she is wearing her old look? --Sapphowako (talk) 00:06, November 21, 2012 (UTC)
A couple of points on that....
The character models were upgraded partway through Season 3, so that's what's used in production from that point on
Ahsoka doesn't even appear in Senate Murders, so it's rather a non-issue in the first place
The chronological placement of Senate Murders hasn't yet been clarified. It may well be that it's moved up to take place mid-Season 3 rather than 3/4 of the way through Season 2.
Per the now-defunct The Clone Wars Episode Guide: Heroes on Both Sides on StarWars.com (content now obsolete; backup link on Archive.org), all episodes from Season One and Season Two (and Season Three, episodes one to nine) took place in a confusing order; see here. After that came an "unspecified passage of time" (to account for Ahsoka's aging, visible in her new character model when compared to the old one) and then "Heroes on Both Sides," "Pursuit of Peace," and "Senate Murders." And since then, the series has pretty much remained chronological in terms of airing order. At the time that "Heroes on Both Sides" was released, "Senate Murders" was the episode furthest down in the timeline. CC7567(talk) 02:48, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
Just an aside, we can no longer say that they take place in chronological order entirely since the Heroes/Pursuit/Senate episodes. The season 5 premiere takes place later than the episodes that followed. They moved that one up in the airing schedule to link the S4 finale with the S5 premiere, but the Onderon arc and the Young Jedi arc (and possibly the upcoming R2/Commando and Clovis arcs) take place after the S4 finale (Revenge) and the S5 premiere (Revival).

Well, we can assume that the "Battle of Onderon" arc comes first (since we see Hondo's base not yet destroyed in "Tipping Points"), and then the "Young Jedi" arc (in which the base is destroyed in "A Necessary Bond"), and then "Revival" somewhere down the line. But yeah, we don't know for the rest of the season. We'll have to wait until Leland Chee or some other party confirms the chronology. CC7567(talk) 00:45, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
