Please help...If Ziro died shortly after the events of Hostage Crisis (as implied by Hunt for Ziro), then how is it possible that he was alive and back in prison for the Assassin episode? The only logical possibility is that Assassin is a prequel to Hostage Crisis, but this is clearly not the case. Can someone help? Am I missing something? —Unsigned comment by22.214.171.124 (talk • contribs).
Why is that "clearly not the case"? The Clone Wars episodes don't always air in in-universe chronological order. The events of Assassin occur before the events of Hostage Crisis, despite it premiering a season later. SinisterSamurai 06:44, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately, while this is possible, it seems very unlikely. If your comments were accurate, that would also say that the episodes R2D2 Come Home and Lethal Trackdown at the ends of season 2 also came before Hostage Crisis - since those events form the immediate lead-in to Assassin. Given that Ahsoka's maturity and development in the Force is fundamental to the story in Assassin, it is a stretch to assume that the Assassin episode is actually a prequel to Hostage Crisis. —Unsigned comment by126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs).
That wasn't a suggestion of possibility. It was a statement of fact: The Clone Wars Episode Guide: Assassin on StarWars.com (content now obsolete; backup link) "This episode, more than others, reveals the convoluted chronology of stories from the first two seasons. The Season Two finale, "Lethal Trackdown," actually takes place before the Season One finale, "Hostage Crisis."
In a chronological flow of events, the series begins with the action on Christophsis ("Cat and Mouse," "The Hidden Enemy"), which introduces Ahsoka to the Clone Wars ("The New Padawan," which was incorporated into feature film). Then, the kidnapping of Rotta the Hutt introduces Ziro the Hutt, and the movie ends with Ziro's incarceration. Many Season One and Season Two episodes then follow, with Season Two's trilogy of Boba Fett episodes introducing Aurra Sing into the storyline. The crashing of the Slave I leads the Jedi to mistakenly believe that Aurra is dead, until she surfaces in this episode, which brings back Ziro -- chronologically -- for the first time since his imprisonment. The story continues in the next Season Three episode, "Evil Plans", and Aurra will somehow be freed from captivity in time for Cad Bane's attack on the Senate in Season One's "Hostage Crisis." The drama surrounding Ziro and his freedom then picks up in "Hunt for Ziro," the ninth episode of this season." SinisterSamurai 10:27, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
There's no canonical answer to this, but a lot of fair possibilities. He was in prison for a while, maybe he was weaker than usual. It's also possible that he was sick. Or even just a really weak Hutt. Like I said, no canonical answer, but we can't say that it definitively went against the canon.

No foul language please. The sentence above should be removed by an administrator. Thank you. —Unsigned comment byDaigear (talk • contribs).
While I believe that we have policy frowning on profanity, I don't believe Wookieepedia expressly forbids it. An administrator would probably take action if it becomes excessive or hostile. SinisterSamurai 20:26, January 24, 2011 (UTC)
