Rex’s Ability To Follow Orders – The Clone Wars

Foreshadowing is a difficult concept to believe, but it pays off years and seasons ahead of time, as Obi-Wan claims that Rex does not follow orders well just before he says the pod racer will be destroyed.

Rex resists and fights Order 66 in The Clone Wars season 7, which shows why he is one of the finest and most likeable clones in the Star Wars series – to the best of his abilities. When the chip that controlled him was removed, it’s doubtful Filoni and Lucas included that line from Obi-Wan in season 1 of the show with the intention that Rex would resist and fight Order 66, but it’s fantastic hearing it years later, knowing what Rex went through.
