| Episode chronology
- "Easy isn't always simple."
Anakin and Ahsoka are in the slums of Coruscant searching for Car Affa, an arms dealer selling Republic weapons to the Separatists. They arrive at a bar where Affa is hiding, and Anakin instructs Ahsoka to wait outside while he apprehends the fugitive. When the patrons storm out of the bar, Ahsoka is jostled by the crowd and her lightsaber gets stolen. She chases the thief, but loses him in the crowd. Unwilling to inform Anakin about her loss, she heads to the Archives in the Jedi Temple, where she meets Tera Sinube, a Jedi Master with specialized knowledge about Coruscant's criminal underworld. Sinube finds Ahsoka's thief in the database, a Patrolian named Bannamu, and they set off together to apprehend him.
Back in the slum district, they are directed to Bannamu's hideout—the Spider Arms Hostel. Ahsoka eventually locates Bannamu, and learns that he has sold her lightsaber to an assassin called Nack Movers. Thus, she and Sinube hurry to the apartment owned by Movers' girlfriend, only to find that the lock has been cut open, and Movers has been killed. The two Jedi soon see a frightened female called Ione Marcy hiding in the apartment, who asks if the men who killed Movers have gone. Ahsoka goes to search the bedroom, where she gets attacked by Cassie Cryar, wielding Ahsoka's lightsaber. Upon learning that Ahsoka is a Jedi, Cassie jumps through the window and runs away along the city's rooftops. Ahsoka chases after her and contacts Sinube, informing him about the development.
Due to the fact that Ahsoka's attacker was a female was inconsistent with Ione's info that men had broken into the apartment, and coupled with sensing something more than just shock in her, Sinube deduces that Ione was involved in the crime. He subtly attaches a tracking device to her and summons Guardian police droids, but Ione escapes in an airspeeder.
Meanwhile, Ahsoka is closing on Cassie on the top of a high building, when Cassie jumps and lands in Ione's passing speeder. Sinube picks up Ahsoka in another speeder, and they follow the tracking device to a train station. Police droids apprehend Ione, but Cassie manages to dash off onto the top of a departing train. Ahsoka runs after her and they ultimately enter a wagon, where Cassie takes a Twi'lek mother and child as hostages, still with Ahsoka's lightsaber in hand. When the train arrives at the next station, Cassie attempts to run away again, but Sinube, having gotten to the station first, intercepts her and disarms her. Later, as Sinube suggests that Ahsoka should share the lesson she has learned, she heads to the Jedi Temple, and tells younglings how they should never lose their lightsabers.

Behind the scenesEdit
When Ahsoka visits Jocasta Nu in the Jedi Archives Library, a criminal file on Brea Tonnika is open on the computer Nu is using. The Aurebesh text next to her picture reads "LAST SEEN ON CORUSCANT WANTED FOR MURDER."
On Coruscant, when Ahsoka is looking for a Lightsaber to buy near the Fastfood Restaurant, behind her on the wall is written in ' Massage'.
On Coruscant, when Ahsoka is chasing Cassie Cryar, numerous floating advertising boards they jump over feature Aurebesh writing. One such board reads "SODA;", another reads "STAR TOURS GLEE ANSELM CALL 1-800-555-6576 NOW!". The text under Palpatine reads "KUAT DRIVE YARDS AWARD" before being cut off.
Despite the fact that one of the floating ads Ahsoka jumps on involves Palpatine making a speech and that the speech is included in the quotes on the episode guide, neither the character nor Ian Abercrombie, the Supreme Chancellor's usual voice actor, appear in the credits.
A list of destinations that pops up at the hovertrain station has Burbank listed, a reference and in-joke to the town in California. A similar in-joke would appear later in the Season 5 episode, "To Catch a Jedi".
