Episode 658: Shaak Weak


This is the first deleted scene from the film that is presented on the DVD. It is a scene in which Anakin and Obi-Wan briefly meet General Grievous before finding Palpatine and Count Dooku. Grievous has somehow managed to capture the Jedi Master Shaak Ti and has her helpless on her knees. He then executes her in front of Obi-Wan and Anakin, and they have to escape by cutting their way through the floor and jumping into a tunnel waist deep in some sort of liquid. (It looks like fake CGI water, but it's apparently supposed to be fuel of some sort.)

We wanted to use this scene in the story. We even wrote a gag about Anakin and Obi-Wan falling into an area of the ship that the GM hadn't mapped, because he never expected them to cut through the floor, thus the incomplete special effects appearance of the liquid they end up sloshing around in. But it didn't fit into the narrative we planned with the revelation of General Grievous after the rescue of Palpatine from Count Dookû, and the presence of Shaak Ti was a problem as well. So we decided not to use this scene in the story. But we didn't want to let it pass unnoted, so we've used it here for this intermission strip.


General Grievous: Ah, Obi-Wan and Anakin. I present... your wife!
Obi-Wan: What? Whose wife?
General Grievous: Both of you! I wedded you in a pleasant aquatic ceremony not five minutes ago.
Anakin: But... I'm already married.
General Grievous: Oh? Consider this a divorce then!
{Grievous stabs and kills Shaak Ti with a laser sword}
Obi-Wan: Hey!!
General Grievous: How the widowers grieve...
Anakin: Ooo-kay... We cut a hole in the floor.
Obi-Wan: Agreed. Emphatically.
GM: You fall into water.
Obi-Wan: Water, on a space ship?
General Grievous: Ah! They nostalgically return to the nuptial stream of tears.
{Grievous turns and leaves}
General Grievous: O, to be young and full of the bittersweet euphoria of frivolous romanticism!
